 This class action is directed to all Canadian residents with Yahoo! accounts at any time during the period January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2016, inclusive. 

The lawsuit alleges that Yahoo! experienced multiple data breaches between 2013 and 2016 (the “Data Breaches”) because it had inadequate data security measures in place to protect account holders’ personal information. The defendants Yahoo! Inc. and Yahoo! Canada Co. (collectively, “Yahoo” or the “Defendants”) deny that they have violated any laws and deny that they have engaged in any wrongdoing.
