Vimeo’s Magisto App Biometric Privacy Violations – Class Action Investigation
Ahdoot Wolfson is investigating a potential class action lawsuit relating to Vimeo’s Magisto App, the video editing application, based upon reported violations of Illinois’ biometric privacy law, called the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”). According to reports, the Magisto app takes, utilizes, and stores facial and biometric information of Illinois residents without users’ informed written consent.
The Illinois BIPA requires informed consent and certain disclosures to be provided to persons whose facial scans are being collected before collecting, storing, or using that biometric information. The Magisto app’s collection and storage of facial and other data without customer consent may violate the Illinois BIPA.
If you are an Illinois resident who has used the Magisto app, please contact us by filling out the form below, and one of the attorneys at Ahdoot Wolfson promptly will contact you.
