If you operate a business that has been listed on the Giftly Inc. (“Giftly”) website (https://www.giftly.com/) at any time, you could be affected by a class action settlement (the “Settlement,” “Settlement Agreement,” or “Agreement”).
WHAT IS THE LAWSUIT ABOUT?
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Giftly concerning claims under Federal, New York, and Illinois law based on Giftly’s use on its website of the names of businesses across the United States. The lawsuit alleges that Giftly’s use of those business names has injured those businesses. Giftly denies all claims and that it violated any law but has agreed to the settlement to avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with continuing the case.
WHO IS INCLUDED?
Settlement Class Members include businesses or entities, and/or any individuals with any ownership interest in such entities, in the United States that, without their agreement, were listed on Giftly Inc.’s website.
WHAT DOES THE SETTLEMENT PROVIDE?
Those who file timely and properly completed claims by September 25, 2023 will be eligible to receive a share of a $500,000 fund dedicated to providing Settlement Class Members customized internet advertisements (the “Merchant Advertising Program”). Your share will depend on how many Settlement Class Members register and enroll in the Merchant Advertising Program, but your share will be no larger than $1,000 in any event.
