Saar’s Super Saver Foods FACTA Receipt Settlement Notes
- Albert Viesse, et al. v. Saar’s Inc., et al.
- Case No. 17-2-07783-6-SEA
- Pending in the King County Superior Court for the State of Washington
In 2016, plaintiff Albert Viesse alleged that specific Washington state Saar’s and Super Saver Foods stores willfully violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) by printing the expiration date of his and other consumers’ credit credit and/or debit cards on their electronically printed customer receipts.
FACTA was enacted into law as an amendment to the Fair Credit Reporting Act in an effort to protect consumers from identity theft. The law has vert specific requirements for the ways consumer information can be shared. One of these is that retailers and merchants must truncate customer payment receipts so that the customer’s full account number is not viewable on the receipt. FACTA also stipulates that the customer’s card expiration date cannot be printed on the receipt.
Saar’s does not admit any violation of FACTA by agreeing to the proposed settlement.
Under the terms of the Saar’s FACTA Settlement, Saar’s will provide a Saar’s gift card in an amount up to $75.00 to each Class member who submits a valid and timely claim form. Thise gift cards will not expire and can only be used to make purchases from any of the Saar’s stores. Additionally, Saar’s will implement a written policy which will state that it will not print more than the last fice digits of the credit or debit card number nor the credit or debit card expiration date on any printed customer receipt.
