You have 4 options:
1 File a Claim Form
Submit a Claim Form. To claim your share of the Settlement Fund, you must complete and return to the Settlement Administrator a signed Claim Form or submit a claim online, no later than October 18, 2023.
If your claim is approved, you will be mailed a check for your share of the settlement funds once this settlement becomes final and either the time for appeal is over or, in the event of an appeal, the appeal is finally resolved with the Court affirming the settlement and the time for further appeal has concluded. Please be patient.
You may use the Claim Form attached to your Notice that you received in the mail, or you can submit one online here.
Filing a valid and timely Claim Form is the only way to receive a payment from the Settlement.
2 Do Nothing
If you do nothing, you will stay in the Settlement Class, be bound by any judgment entered by the Court, and you will release your claims against West Bend about insurance coverage for Standard Market’s collection of your biometric information or identifiers during the Class Period, but you will receive no payment unless you submit a Claim Form.
3 Exclude yourself from the Settlement Class and the settlement
You can exclude yourself from the class action and the settlement by sending your request to the Settlement Administrator at
West Bend v The Standard Market, LLC
c/o Analytics Consulting LLC
P.O. Box 2002
Chanhassen, MN 55317-2002
Your request must be postmarked on or before August 21, 2023, and it must list your name, street address, and the case name and number above, and indicate that you request exclusion from the Settlement Class.
4 Object to the Settlement in writing
If you object to the settlement and you want to file an objection rather than excluding yourself, you must submit/file your objection in writing with the Clerk of the Circuit Court of DuPage County, 505 County Farm Road, Wheaton, Illinois 60187. Your objection must be filed by August 21, 2023. You must also serve copies of your objection and any supporting memoranda or materials on the attorneys for the Settlement Class and the attorneys for Defendant listed below, postmarked by the same date:

Your objection must identify (1) your name, address, and telephone number, (2) the specific date(s) you were employed by Standard Market, (3) all attorneys who assisted you in the preparation and filing of your objection, (4) a list of all other class action cases in which you or your attorneys have submitted an objection to a settlement, and (5) a statement of the reasons why you believe the Court should find that the proposed settlement is not fair, reasonable, adequate, and in the best interests of the Settlement Class. You must sign under penalty of perjury: “I declare (or certify, verify, or state) under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct. Executed on (date). (Signature).” If your objection does not comply with all these requirements, the Court will strike and disregard your objection.
