The Federal Trade Commission’s (“FTC”) Bureau of Consumer Protection has entered into a consent agreement with Unrollme Inc. (“Unrollme”), preventing Unrollme from continuing to engage in practices which the FTC considers to be unfair or deceptive, in violation of Section 5(a) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. § 45(a). This email lawsuit was initiated because Unrollme was providing its parent company, Slice Technologies, Inc. (“Slice”), with access to Unrollme users’ inboxes for purposes of collecting data from electronic purchase receipts for market research, failing to disclose those practices, all while representing that they would not, in fact, access the private emails of their users.
What are the allegations contained in the email lawsuit complaint?
