Posted by banatzayed في أغسطس 14, 2017


Class Member Identification Number: 102961562801
NOTICE OF PENDING CLASS ACTION AND NOTICE OF PROPOSED SETTLEMENT
OPPERMAN, ET AL. v. KONG TECHNOLOGIES, INC., ET AL.

A court authorized this notice.
This is not a solicitation. You are not being sued.
If you downloaded and used certain mobile applications on your
Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod device before February 23, 2012
you may be entitled to receive a payment.
Why did I get this notice? A settlement (“Settlement”) has been proposed in a class action lawsuit pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California (“Court”) titled Opperman, et al. v. Kong Technologies, Inc., et al., Case 13-cv-00453-JST (the “Litigation”).According to available records, you might be a “Class Member.” The purpose of this notice is to inform you of this Litigation and the Settlement so that you may decide what steps to take in relation to it. This email notice is a summary. Complete details of the Settlement and your options can be found at www.iosappsettlement.com.
What is the Litigation about? A group ofPlaintiffs filed a lawsuit on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated against Apple and several companies that develop apps for Apple iDevices. The Litigation alleges that certain versions of the Foodspotting, Foursquare, Gowalla, Instagram, Kik, Path, Twitter, and Yelp apps obtained contact data from users’ iDevices in violation of user’s privacy rights, and that Apple aided and abetted that conduct.
Who are the Plaintiffs and Defendants? The plaintiffs are Allen Beuershausen, Giuliana Biondi, Lauren Carter, Stephen Dean, Stephanie Cooley, Jason Green, Claire Hodgins, Gentry Hoffman, Rachelle King, Nirali Mandalaywala, Claire Moses, Judy Paul, and Gregory Varner. They are referred to as the “Class Representatives.” The App Developer defendants are Foodspotting, LLC; Foursquare Labs, Inc.; Gowalla, Inc.; Instagram, LLC; Kik Interactive Inc.; Kong Technologies, Inc. (formerly known as Path, Inc.); Twitter, Inc.; and Yelp Inc. They are referred to as the “App Developers.”
The App Developers deny wrongdoing and liability and deny that the Class could have recovered after trial. No court has decided which side is right. But both sides agreed to this Settlement which provides benefits to Class Members and resolves the case.
Am I a Class Member? You are a “Class Member” if you fall within the definitions set out in the detailed notice, which is available at the Settlement Website at www.iosappsettlement.com. Those definitions only include persons in the United States using iDevices and depend on the app or apps you used and the time period during which you used them. The Class definitions can be summarized as persons in the United States who:
(A) used versions 2.5 through 3.1 of the iOS Foodspotting app to “Find iPhone Contacts” between August 9, 2011 and February 19, 2012;
(B) used versions 1.1 through 4.2 of the iOS Foursquare app between April 4, 2009 and
February 14, 2012 (and for some versions used “Add Friends”);
(C) used versions 1.5.0 through 4.1 of the iOS Gowalla app between February 23, 2010 and
February 23, 2012 to “Find Friends” with your “Address Book”;
(D) used versions 1.0.0 through 2.0.7 of the Instagram app between October 6, 2010 and
February 10, 2012 to “Find Friends”;
(E) used version 5.4.0 of the iOS Kik app and used the “Suggested Friends” feature between
December 22, 2011 and February 11, 2012;
(F) used versions 2.0 through 2.0.5 of the iOS Path app between November 29, 2011 and
February 7, 2012;
(G) used versions 3.3 through 4.0.1 of the iOS Twitter app between March 11, 2011 and
February 21, 2012 to “Find Friends”; and/or
(H) used versions 4.0.0 through 5.6.0 of the iOS Yelp app between January 16, 2010 and
February 22, 2012 to “Find Friends.”
What benefits does the Settlement provide? If you are a Class Member, you are eligible to submit an online Claim Form to receive a payment. The App Developers have agreed to pay, collectively, $5.3 million (the “Settlement Amount”) to be used to pay claims by Class Members after deduction of some of the costs of administration, Class Counsel’s fees and costs, and incentive awards for the Class Representatives.
How much will my share be? The share of each Class Member who makes a claim will be based on the number of Class Members who make claims and the number of relevant apps used by each Class Member who makes a claim. All amounts remaining after payment of certain administration costs, Class Counsel’s fees and costs, and incentive awards for the Class Representatives will be divided amongst the Class Members who make claims pursuant to the instructions in this notice.
How can I get a payment? To qualify for a payment, you must be a Class Member and complete and submit a valid online Claim Form. The Claim Form can be found on the Settlement Website at www.iosappsettlement.com. To complete the Claim Form, you must enter your Class Member Identification Number: 102961562801. You must complete and submit the Claim Form online by no later than November 10, 2017, in order to be eligible for payment. Late claims will not be accepted.
What are my other options?
1. You can exclude yourself: If you are a Class Member and don’t want to be part of the Settlement, you must exclude yourself by November 10, 2017, or you won’t be able to sue all or any of the App Developers or Apple (with respect to aiding and abetting the App Developers) aboutthe legal claims in the Litigation ever again. If you exclude yourself, you cannot receive a payment from this Settlement, but you can still bring your own lawsuit about the issues in this case, at your own expense, if you choose to do so. The detailed notice, which is available at the Settlement Website at www.iosappsettlement.com, explains how to request exclusion.
2. You can object to the Settlement: If you are a Class Member and want to stay in the Litigation but do not want the Court to approve the Settlement, you may object to it by November 10, 2017.

This generally means that you will not be able to file a lawsuit, continue prosecuting a lawsuit, or be part of any other lawsuit against the App Developers regarding the allegations in the Litigation, or Apple for aiding and abetting the App Developers. The specific terms of the release are contained in the detailed notice and the Settlement Agreement, both of which are available at the Settlement Website at www.iosappsettlement.com.
