Home Depot Data Breach Settlement
Lozanski v. Home Depot Credit Monitoring Instructions
We are the Claims Administrator for the Court-approved settlement in the Home Depot data breach class action in Canada (Lozanski v. Home Depot, et al.)
You are a Settlement Class Member in that lawsuit, and you submitted a Claim Form for free Credit Monitoring Services as a share of the class action settlement proceeds.
(If you did not file such a Claim Form, you may ignore this message.)
Your Claim for Credit Monitoring Services has been accepted, and this message provides you with the necessary information to register to receive that Service, at no cost to you.
The credit monitoring service provider is Equifax Canada, and the link below describes the coverage details for the “Complete Advantage” subscription package to which you are entitled:
To begin receiving coverage, and to receive reimbursement for the cost of coverage, you must complete two steps.
First, you must sign up with Equifax and create an account. You will be asked to provide your credit card information when you sign up. Equifax will immediately charge your card $16.95 for the first month of the “Complete Advantage” subscription coverage. You can sign up by accessing this link:
https://www.econsumer.equifax.ca/canada ... code=en_ca
Second, you must then provide us, as the Claims Administrator, with proof of registration/payment (e.g. credit card statement, or receipt, showing the Equifax charge), as follows:
1. download the Reimbursement Form available at http://www.canadahomedepotdatabreachsettlement.com/ and print it out.
2. Fill out the form with your name and address and the unique Claim ID that was assigned to you. This number can be found at the top of this email.
3. Attach your proof of registration (your credit card statement or receipt) to the Reimbursement Form and mail them both to:
Home Depot Breach Canada
PO Box 4454
Toronto Station A 25 The Esplanade
Toronto, ON M5W 4B1
You must provide us with that proper documentation so that we receive it by June 23, 2017. Letters received after that date will not be processed.
Upon receipt of the proper documentation, we will mail you a cheque for the cost of coverage for the first month, plus an additional 6 (six) months (at $16.95/month). The commitment by Home Depot to fund coverage for 7 months for all approved claimants for Credit Monitoring Service – rather than 6 months coverage – exceeds its responsibilities under the Court Order approving the settlement of the class action.
Please note: when you register for the Equifax Complete Advantage subscription service, you will be authorizing Equifax to make an automatic charge to your credit card for $16.95 every month, unless you cancel your subscription by calling Equifax at1-800-871-3250, 8am - 12am EST. Please ensure that you properly cancel coverage prior to the end of the 7th month, or you assume sole responsibility (not Home Depot) for the ongoing monthly payments for the Complete Advantage Service. For instance, if you activate your subscription on June 1, 2017, you must phone Equifax and cancel your subscription prior to December 31, 2017 or you, and not Home Depot, will assume the cost of the service thereafter.
