View Full Version : $2000 Settlement from Amazon/Alexa for a Cookie
09-10-2001, 08:55 AM
If you installed Alexa, then Amazon owes you $2000 for invasion
of privacy. This is not a suit-in-progress, but a judgment;
Amazon/Alexa already lost the class action lawsuit. You can
claim your $2000 here:

Thanks, I just filed an online claim, but I doubt I'll get anything, even though I really did download Alexa. I no longer have the computer I was using at the time and don't have access to the cookie ID#. That was like 2 computers ago!!

I am pretty sure that I downloaded Alexa but I cannot find the cookie for the life of me. I am pretty sure I have re-installed my OS more than once since Alexa...

here is where reading legal documents pays off:
1. It has to be a cookie (and the EXACT registration info) for an Alexa install PRIOR to Nov 200
2. Only 5 pre-named people get the $2000:
1.11 "Class Representatives" means Joshua M. Supnick, Joel D. Newby, Richard C. Bieles, Jr., Loren Stone and Dawn Sklare.
3. Others get $40 or less:
5.8(b) Within 30 business days after the later of the end of the Claims Period or the Settlement Date, Defendants shall pay to each approved Claimant the lesser of $40 or a pro rata amount, calculated by dividing the amount in the Claim Fund by the total number of approved Claimants.
4. They will hand verify each claim

Yea it's not gonna be easy to get the money...I never installed alexa...so I know I'm not affected...

You also have to give them more personal info to try to get this money than they could try to get using their cookie - SSN, phone, email, mail, yeah right...

I feel you Burzhui, I don't know how I could get the info off of my old comp. It seems like too much work and hassle for $40.
