Details:Symantec Corporation has reached a class action lawsuit settlement over allegations it improperly charged customers for the automatic renewal of a prior Norton software subscription after they purchased another Norton product. If you upgraded or renewed your Norton antivirus software since October 1, 2005, you could get a $10 cash refund or two-month Norton subscription extension from the Norton upgrade class action settlement. No proof of purchase necessary.

The Norton upgrade settlement will resolve a 2008 class action lawsuit, titled Marolda v. Symantec Corp., that alleges Symantec’s automatic renewal program for Norton anti-virus subscriptions was improper because it did not disclose to customers that they needed to cancel the automatic renewal if an upgrade product was purchased.

Symantec denies any wrongdoing, but has agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.

Class Members of the Norton anit-virus class action settlement include all persons in the United States (including individuals, companies, government entities and all other entities) who, between October 1, 2005 and May 23, 2012:

* purchased one of the following Norton products, and
* enrolled in Norton’s automatic renewal service for that products, and
* purchased (or renewed) a second Eligible Product either during the term of your subscription to the first Eligible Product or within 60 days after being charged an automatic renewal charge for that first Eligible Product, and
* installed the second Eligible Product on the same computer as the first Eligible Product, and
* have not received a refund of the automatic renewal charge.

All versions of the following Symantec antivirus software products are included in the class action lawsuit settlement:

Norton AntiVirus
Norton Internet Security
Norton 360
Norton Personal Firewall
Norton SystemWorks

 

Class Members that submit valid claim forms by the deadline of May 6, 2013, will receive one of the following benefits from the Norton settlement:

No Proof-of-Purchase Claim
If you submit a No Proof-of-Purchase Claim you are not required to prove your Norton purchases — the claim is based on your knowledge and recollection.

Each Settlement Class Member who submits a valid No-Proof-of-Purchase Claim is eligible to receive their choice of either:
* a $10 cash refund, or
* a two-month extension to their existing Norton subscription.

Proof-of-Purchase Claim
Proof-of-Purchase Claims require documentation from you to prove your Norton purchases.
