United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois Peoria Division
Case No. 1:19-cv-01330-MMM-JEH
If you made a purchase at a Hy-Vee fuel pump, drive-thru coffee shop, or restaurant using a credit, debit, or other payment card between December 14, 2018 and August 2, 2019, you may be eligible for a payment from a class action settlement.
•A Settlement has been reached with Hy-Vee, Inc. (“Hy-Vee”) in a class action lawsuit about a data Security Incident that occurred between December 14, 2018 and August 2, 2019.
•Hy-Vee was the target of a cyber-attack in which criminals accessed Hy-Vee’s computer systems (the “Security Incident”) that potentially resulted in unauthorized access to customer payment data, including card number, expiration date, internal verification code, and sometimes cardholder name. This lawsuit was filed asserting claims against Hy-Vee relating to the Security Incident.
•Certain Hy-Vee fuel pumps, drive-thru coffee shops, and restaurants were affected by the Security Incident, including Hy-Vee Market Grille Expresses, Wahlburgers locations owned and operated by Hy-Vee, and the cafeteria at Hy-Vee’s West Des Moines corporate office.
•The Settlement includes all persons residing in the United States who used a credit, debit, or other payment card to make a point-of-sale purchase at an affected Hy-Vee fuel pump, drive-thru coffee shop, or restaurant. The dates payment card data was at risk vary by location. Details are found in Appendix A of the Notice and are also available here.
•The Settlement provides payments to people who submit valid claims for out-of-pocket expenses and charges that were incurred and plausibly arose from the Security Incident and for other extraordinary unreimbursed monetary losses.
