In Illinois, it is illegal for a company to collect or store a person’s face scan without that person’s written permission. Shutterfly’s use of facial recognition software may violate Illinois law, and Shutterfly users who uploaded photographs of themselves to their Shutterfly account may be entitled to $5,000 for each violation of the law.

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
Shutterfly’s Terms of Service restrict customers’ ability to obtain relief in court or through class actions. This means that you cannot rely on someone else to make a claim on your behalf.
Illinois law provides significant relief, but you cannot recover anything unless you take action.
But you don’t have to do it alone. We will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
