Call Recording

An increasing number of companies are recording calls without providing warnings or notice. The California Invasion of Privacy Act (CIPA) forbids wiretapping into, eavesdropping on, or recording any confidential communication without the consent of all parties. If you live in California, called a toll-free number, and did not receive a warning about call recording, and if you feel you have reason to believe the call was recorded, let us know by filling out the form on this page.

Neiman Marcus store

The Neiman Marcus Group is settling a class action alleging that it was negligent and otherwise in violation of its duties in the case of a recent data breach. In January 2014, the company announced that it had experienced a data breach that exposed payment card information of customers who had made purchases at several of its stores.

Tempurpedic Bed

Tempur Sealy sells its products to consumers through the Tempurpedic.com website. Until October 2016, its website and online payment system was handled through Aptos, a company that provides what the complaint calls “retail enterprise management solutions,” such as point of sale, analytics, and order management. According to the complaint, in February 2016, someone breached Aptos’s systems and installed malware to capture payment card and other information for forty online retailers, including Tempur Sealy. The complaint claims that not only should the information not have been obtainable, but that Aptos and Tempur Sealy were both remiss in not informing customers immediately.
