If your personally identifying information was compromised as a result of the data security incident that American Bank Systems announced in 2020, you could get a payment from a class action settlement.

A Settlement has been proposed to resolve litigation against Defendant American Bank Systems, Inc. (“ABS” or “Defendant”) brought by a putative class of individuals whose personal identifiable information (“PII”) was compromised as a result of a third-party criminal cyberattack on Defendant’s systems, which was announced in 2020 (the “Data Security Incident”).

If you qualify, you may send in a claim form electronically or by mail to get benefits, or you can exclude yourself from the Settlement, or object to it. Before any money is paid, the Court will have a hearing to decide whether to approve the Settlement.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS SETTLEMENT
SUBMIT A CLAIM FORM If eligible, you will receive a cash payment. This is the only way to get compensation from the Settlement.
EXCLUDE YOURSELF If you ask to be excluded, you will not receive a cash payment, but you may be able to file your own lawsuit against ABS for the same claims. This is the only option that leaves you the right to file your own lawsuit against ABS and/or Defendants’ Released Persons (defined in the Settlement Agreement) for the claims that are being resolved by the Settlement. In order to be effective, a request to be excluded from the Settlement must include all information required by the Settlement.
OBJECT You can remain in the Settlement Class and file an objection telling the Court why you do not like the Settlement. If your objections are overruled, you will be bound by the Settlement.
DO NOTHING If you do nothing, you will not receive any cash payment. If you do nothing, you will also forfeit your right to sue or bring any claim against ABS and/or Defendants’ Released Persons related to the Data Security Incident.
