Cosmetics giant Sephora settles customer data privacy suit


Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Sephora Inc. has settled a lawsuit claiming the company sold customer information without proper notice in violation of the California’s landmark consumer privacy law. Attorney General Rob Bonta said Wednesday that the large cosmetics retailer agreed to pay $1.2 million and fix the problem. State officials say Sephora failed to tell customers that it was selling their personal information, failed to allow customers to opt out and didn’t fix the problem within 30 days as required. Sephora says it uses the information to improve their shopping experience and is already complying with state law. The settlement is the state’s first such enforcement action under the California Consumer Privacy Act.
