THE NOTICE MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY.
A proposed Settlement has been reached with 21st Century Oncology Investments, LLC and 21st Century Oncology of California, a Medical Corporation (together, “21st Century Oncology” or “Defendants”) relating to the data breach 21st Century Oncology announced in March 2016 (the “Data Breach”).
If you received a notice from 21st Century Oncology in or around March 2016 about the Data Breach, you are included in this Settlement as a “Settlement Class Member.”
Under the Settlement, 21st Century Oncology has agreed to establish a Settlement Fund to pay for (1) credit monitoring and identity theft protection and insurance; (2) cash payment of up to $40 for two hours of time fairly traceable to the Data Breach, valued at $20 per hour; (3) cash payment of up to $260 for up to an additional thirteen hours of documented time fairly traceable to the Data Breach, valued at $20 per hour; (4) cash payment of up to $10,000 for documented losses and/or out-of-pocket costs fairly traceable to the Data Breach; and (5) the costs of the settlement administration, court-approved attorneys’ fees and expenses, and service awards for Class Representatives.
The Court in charge of this case has granted preliminary approval of the Settlement, but has not yet decided whether to grant final approval of the Settlement. No Settlement benefits or payments will be provided unless the Court grants final approval of the Settlement and the Settlement becomes final.
These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in the Notice. If you are a Settlement Class Member, your legal rights will be affected whether or not you take action. Please read the entire Notice carefully. Para notificación en español, haga clic aqui.
