Stripe Must Face Consumer Privacy Claims Over Data on Purchases

“Stripe Inc. must face claims from consumers that the payment processing platform invaded their privacy under California law by collecting data on purchases and sharing it with merchants and customers. The potential consumer class action can proceed with certain privacy claims brought under the state’s constitution, common law, and unfair competition law, according to a Wednesday order from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The court order rejected additional claims made under the California Invasion of Privacy Act and other privacy laws in Florida and Washington.”
