The lawsuit alleges that on or about January 17, 2017, TransPerfect was the victim of a phishing attack resulting in the disclosure of its current and former employees’ Form W-2 data and payroll information (“Data Breach”). TransPerfect maintains that it had meritorious defenses, and it was prepared to vigorously defend the lawsuit. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing or an indication that TransPerfect has violated any laws.

If you are a current or former TransPerfect employee whose Form W-2 data and/or payroll information was compromised in the Data Breach, you are a Settlement Class Member.
The Settlement provides that Settlement Class Members are eligible for an additional three years of identity theft protection services at TransPerfect’s expense, including:
All Settlement Class Members may obtain coverage in the form of Experian’s Credit Plus 3-Bureau plan (the “Class Settlement Experian Plan") for a three-year period at TransPerfect’s cost on or before the December 5, 2018 Election Deadline. Each person who enrolls in the Class Settlement Experian Plan is entitled to: (i) three-bureau credit monitoring alerts; (ii) dark web surveillance alerts; (iii) daily credit reports; (iv) fraud resolution support; and (v) up to $1 million in identity theft insurance. If you elect to receive identity theft coverage in the form of the Class Settlement Experian Plan, you will receive additional enrollment information and must activate the Class Settlement Experian Plan as instructed.

Settlement Class Members who have not accepted coverage under TransPerfect’s previous offering of Experian ProtectMyID identity theft protection plan (the “Original Experian Plan”), offered shortly after the Data Breach, are able to do so without affecting their rights under the Settlement Agreement. The deadline for enrolling in the Original Experian Plan is February 10, 2019. You may find out whether you previously accepted coverage under the Original Experian Plan by calling Experian at 1-877-890-9332.
Settlement Class Members who have elected to receive the Class Settlement Experian Plan being offered through this settlement may also seek reimbursement of economic costs up to $4,000 per Settlement Class Members that are related to the Data Breach and not reimbursed by Experian or another third party, if supported by required documentation. Any Settlement Class Member whose reimbursement claim to Experian is rejected for failure to submit a claim within Experian’s required time period may not submit a claim for reimbursement for economic costs related to the Data Breach. To be eligible for reimbursement, you must submit sufficient evidence of your economic costs, and satisfy additional requirements. The deadline to submit a claim is February 10, 2021.
The Class Settlement Experian Plan being provided to Settlement Class Members is available whether or not they enrolled in the Original Experian Plan.
|YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS LAWSUIT:|
Submit An Identity Theft Protection Election Form
|This is the only way for Settlement Class Members to enroll in the Class Settlement Experian Plan paid for by TransPerfect. If you submit an Identity Theft Protection Election Form, you will give up the right to sue TransPerfect in a separate lawsuit about the claims this Settlement resolves.|
Submit One Or More Reimbursement Forms
|This is the only way for Settlement Class Members to request reimbursement of economic costs related to the Data Breach and not otherwise reimbursed by a third party or Experian after submission of a claim to Experian.

If you submit a Reimbursement Form, you will give up the right to sue TransPerfect in a separate lawsuit about the claims this Settlement resolves.|

If you are a Settlement Class Member and do not submit an Identity Theft Protection Election Form, you will not receive any benefits of the Settlement. If you do nothing, you will still give up the right to sue, continue to sue, or be part of another lawsuit against TransPerfect about the legal claims resolved by this Settlement.|
|You will not receive any benefits from the Settlement, but you will not be bound by the terms of the Settlement, if approved by the Court.|
|If you do not exclude yourself from the Settlement Class, you may object to the Settlement or to Class Counsel’s or the Class Representatives’ requests for Class Counsel fees or Service Awards, respectively.|
Go To A Hearing On September 27, 2018 (revised)
|You may object to the Settlement and ask the Court permission to speak at the Fairness Hearing about your objection.|
These rights and options – and the deadlines to exercise them – are explained in the Notice.
The Court still must decide whether to approve the Settlement. No benefits will be provided or payments made until after the Court grants final approval of the Settlement and all appeals, if any, are resolved.
