You may be entitled to a minimum of $1,000 under Illinois law if you have uploaded photographs of yourself to your Shutterfly account.
We’re Here to Help

Illinois Law Protects Your Privacy
Companies collecting biometric identifiers, such as face scans, must comply with the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act. The law provides damages of $1,000 per negligent violation and $5,000 per willful violation.
You Must Take Action
Recently, a Shutterfly user filed a class action against Shutterfly for scanning each face from uploaded photographs and storing the data in violation of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act. The case was sent to individual arbitration, however, because Shutterfly’s Terms of Service prohibit customers from seeking relief in court or through class actions. The effect of Shutterfly’s contract is that there will be no class action to provide relief for all affected Shutterfly users. Therefore, if you qualify, no one else can make a claim on your behalf.
This means you cannot recover unless you take action.
But you don’t have to do it alone. We will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
