Tagged.com settles class action lawsuit

Share this article:

Tagged.com has settled a class action lawsuit brought against it by two consumers last year. The social networking site agreed it "will address the plaintiff's concerns" about e-mail address sharing and privacy.

Calls and e-mails to Tagged.com seeking comment were referred to a company blog. According to the company blog post, it has agreed “to address the plaintiffs' concerns and offer a more streamlined account cancellation process for users. In addition, Tagged has agreed to pay $20,000 (plus attorney's fees) to the plaintiffs to settle the case.”

Two California residents filed the initial complaint in federal court in San Francisco last August. It alleged that the plaintiffs “electronic mail services, communications and e-mail address books were misused” by the social site and its owners.

Last November, Tagged.com settled a lawsuit brought against it by New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. That suit accused the company of deceptive e-mail marketing practices and invasion of privacy.
