Welcome to the Military.com Privacy Settlement Website.
This settlement only affects people who had a Facebook account from June 8, 2020 through November 1, 2022. If you did not have a Facebook account during that time period this settlement does not pertain to you.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Military Advantage, Inc. d/b/a Military.com. The class action lawsuit accuses Military Advantage, Inc. d/b/a Military.com of disclosing its subscribers’ personally identifiable information (“PII”) to Facebook via the Facebook Tracking Pixel without consent in violation of the Video Privacy Protection Act (the “VPPA”). The VPPA defines PII to include information which identifies a person as having requested or obtained specific video materials or services from a video tape service provider. Defendant denies that it violated any law and denies that it disclosed any PII of its subscribers to Facebook, but has agreed to the settlement to avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with continuing the case.
You are included if you are or were a digital subscriber to Military.com who had a Facebook account, in the United States, and who accessed a video through the Military.com website from the same browser where you accessed your Facebook account from June 8, 2020, through November 1, 2022.
Persons included in the Settlement will be eligible to submit a Claim Form to receive a cash payment of up to $30. The Settlement also requires Defendant to suspend operation of the Facebook Tracking Pixel on any pages on its website that include video content, within 45 days of the Preliminary Approval Order, for a period of at least two years from the date Military.com removes the Pixel.
