This class action case alleges that Fairmont Hotels & Resorts (U.S.), Inc., now known as Accor Management US Inc., (“FHR” or “Defendant”) willfully violated the federal Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (“FACTA”) by printing more than the last five digits of credit and debit card numbers and/or by failing to mask the expiration date on customers’ credit and debit card folios or receipts provided to guests between November 13, 2015 through November 16, 2017. Defendant has denied the claims. Nonetheless, FHR and the Settlement Class Representatives have agreed to settle the dispute to avoid the uncertainty and costs of further litigation and a trial.
You are a Class Member if you stayed at an FHR location in the United States during the period November 13, 2015 through November 16, 2017 and received a printed folio or receipt which contained more than the last five digits of the credit or debit card and/or the entire expiration date of the credit or debit card you may be entitled to a payment from a class action settlement. You do not need to provide a copy of your folio or receipt to make a claim; however, FHR does have a record of all guest stays and your claim will be subject to verification.
How Much Do I Get?
Defendant has agreed to create a Settlement Fund of $2,000,000 which, after notice and administration fees and costs, enhancement awards to Plaintiffs, and Class Counsel’s attorneys’ fees and costs are deducted, the entire remaining amount will be divided up amongst all Class Members who submit timely and valid Claim Forms.
Based on claims rates in similar cases, we estimate that each Settlement payment will be between $15 and $20. Depending on the final claims rate, the actual amount paid to each Class Member who submits a timely and valid Claim Form could be more or less and will be calculated after the Court enters a Final Approval Order and the judgment becomes final.
