KGG Files Class Action for Data Breach Against Tempur-Pedic and Aptos

KGG FILES CLASS ACTION FOR DATA BREACH AGAINST TEMPUR-PEDIC AND APTOS IN THE US DISTRICT COURT, NORTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA

TempurpedicIn November of 2016, Aptos, the company offering point of sale, digital commerce, order merchandising, analytics, and customer relationship management solutions to online retailers such as Tempur Sealy (“Tempur-Pedic”), discovered that it had failed to maintain the security for the personal information of US consumers who made purchases through the Tempur-Pedic website. Both Tempur-Pedic and Aptos failed to notify consumers of the vulnerability of its database and that electronic files had been compromised by hackers obtaining personal information, including consumers’ names, addresses, and credit card information. When Tempur-Pedic was notified of this breach to the Aptos database, Tempur-Pedic withheld from the public the fact that the data breach occurred, until on or about April 4, 2017, approximately five (5) months after the breach occurred. KGG has filed a class action suit alleging that this breach of personal information and invasion of privacy was due to the negligence of both Tempur-Pedic and Aptos and their respective failures to provide adequate security. The firm has filed its class action complaint for consumers nationwide, and for those in New York alleging damages as a result of the data breach.
