Blockbuster Agrees to Settlement Terms
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.April 27, 2012
Blockbuster has agreed to settle a class-action suit over alleged violations of the Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA), MediaPost News reports. A Minnesota resident filed the suit in September 2011, claiming the company retained customers' personal data--including credit card numbers, contact information and preferences, the report states. The VPPA requires the destruction of such information when it is no longer needed.
