Case No. 2016-CH-04945

IF YOU USED A FINGERPRINT SCANNER TO CHECK IN AT THE LA TAN
LOCATED AT 301 SOUTH ROSELLE ROAD, SCHAUMBURG, ILLINOIS 60193
BETWEEN JANUARY 1, 2012 AND DECEMBER 2, 2021,
A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.

This is an official court Website. You are not being sued. This is not an ad for a lawyer.

  • A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit between Krishna Schaumburg Tan, Inc. (“Defendant” or “Krishna Schaumburg Tan”) and its customers who used a fingerprint scanner to check in before tanning at its LA Tan location—located at 301 South Roselle Road, Schaumburg, Illinois 60193. The suit claims that Krishna Schaumburg Tan violated an Illinois law called the Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) by collecting customers’ fingerprint data through its finger-scanning customer identification system at its LA Tan location without obtaining their informed written consent. Krishna Schaumburg Tan denies any wrongdoing and says that it has not violated any laws. The Settlement does not establish who is right or wrong, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit and avoid the uncertainties and expenses that come with continuing on in court.

  • You are included in the Settlement if you used a biometric finger-scanning device located at the LA Tan tanning salon located at 301 South Roselle Road, Schaumburg, Illinois 60193 between January 1, 2012 and December 2, 2021. 

  • If you’re eligible and the Court approves the Settlement, a Settlement payment will automatically be sent to you for approximately $465, after deducting the payment of the costs, administration expenses, and legal fees. If you do nothing, a check will be mailed to you at your last known address. You can request to update your address here. If instead of a check you would prefer to receive your payment through Venmo, Zelle, Paypal, Prepaid Mastercard, or ACH Direct Deposit, click here, where you may select your preferred payment method. In addition to the Settlement payments, under the Settlement, Krishna Schaumburg Tan has also agreed to comply with BIPA in the future. 

  • Please read the Notice carefully. Your legal rights are affected whether you act, or don’t act.
