The Litigation arises out of Advocate’s implementation and use of the Tracking Pixel on Advocate’s websites, defined below as the “Pixel Disclosure”, during which Plaintiffs allege their web usage data, containing Personal Information, was shared to third parties allegedly resulting in the invasion of Plaintiffs’ and Settlement Class Members’ privacy.
Pixel Disclosure means the alleged disclosure of Personal Information or health information of Plaintiffs and Settlement Class Members to Facebook, Google, or other third parties as a result of any use of Tracking Pixels on Advocate's websites, LiveWell app, and MyChart portal during the class period alleged by Plaintiffs in the Complaint between October 24, 2017, and October 22, 2022.
To resolve this matter without the expense, delay, and uncertainties of protracted litigation, the Parties reached a settlement that resolves all claims brought on behalf of the Settlement Class related to the Pixel Disclosure. If finally approved by the Court, the Settlement Agreement requires Advocate to provide cash compensation to certain Settlement Class Members who submit valid and timely Claim Forms. The Settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Advocate and does not imply that there has been, or would be, any finding that Advocate violated the law.
The Court has preliminarily approved the Settlement Agreement. Nevertheless, because the settlement of a class action determines the rights of all members of the Settlement Class, the Court overseeing this Litigation must give final approval to the Settlement Agreement before it can become effective. The Court has conditionally certified the Settlement Class for settlement purposes only, so that members of the Settlement Class may be given notice and the opportunity to exclude themselves from the Settlement Class or to voice their support for or opposition to final approval of the Settlement Agreement. If the Court does not grant final approval to the Settlement Agreement, or if it is terminated by the Parties, then the Settlement Agreement will be void, and the Litigation will proceed as if there had been no settlement and no certification of the Settlement Class.
