拟议的交易，被赋予了初始绿灯经过U.S. District Judge Leo T. Sorokin on March 30, aims to cover millions of U.S. residents whose data was compromised in the security incident that Drizly made public on July 28, 2020, in which an unauthorized party accessed certain personally identifiable information on the liquor delivery company’s patrons.
Although Drizly, which claims to operate the world’s largest alcohol marketplace, says its customers “trust us to be part of their lives,” the company notified proposed class members in a July 2020 email that it had “recently identified some suspicious activity involving customer data” and determined through an internal investigation that “an unauthorized party appears to have obtained some of our customers’ personal information,” the suit says.
“Despite Drizly’s claims of ‘trust,’ Drizly’s deficient data security measures left its customers’ sensitive customer data vulnerable to hackers who pilfered this information and placed it for sale on the dark web on February 13, 2020, to which it appears Drizly was oblivious,” the complaint scathes.
“Drizly failed to properly safeguard Plaintiff’s and Class members’ information or timely notify them that sensitive customer data was stolen, allowing cybercriminals to access its users’ sensitive customer data since at least February 13, 2020, when the ‘Fresh Hacked’ dump of sensitive customer data was posted on the dark web,” the complaint reads, averring that the incident would have discovered the breach “much sooner” had Drizly properly monitored its systems.
