Lex Group Inc. has launched a national class action against StockX, LLC regarding the data breach that involved unauthorized person(s) gaining access to the personal and/or financial information of approximately 6.8 million StockX clients, including in clients in Canada. This data breach occurred on or before July 26, 2019 but was only announced in August 2019.
StockX, LLC is a Detroit (U.S.A.) based company primarily known for its ecommerce platform StockX.com with an emphasis on the sneaker resale market, but also sells other merchandise such as watches, handbags and street wear.
StockX, LLC informed some of its clients affected by the data breach by email in August 2019.
The stolen personal information includes without limitation the StockX clients’ names, email addresses, shipping address, purchase history, user passwords, users’ shoe size, trading currency, and other profile information such as users’ device type (for instance Android or iPhone) and the software version used by said device.
Accordingly, if you are a client of StockX, LLC in Canada, your personal information may have been lost, stolen or compromised and you may be part of the proposed Class defined by the class action initiated by our office.
Should you be defined as a member of the class, you may be entitled to compensation should the Court authorize and grant the class action on the merits, or should a settlement be reached (and approved by the Court).
Please fill out the form below if you wish to be kept informed of the progress of this case.
