GameFly VPPA Claims | Video Privacy Protection Act

Peiffer Wolf is currently investigating GameFly Video Privacy claims. Our investigations have led us to believe that video game streaming service GameFly may have violated a federal law called the Video Privacy Protection Act. 

GameFly allegedly tracked video content viewed by subscribers and then shared their private and sensitive data with third parties. 

If you have an active GameFly subscription (or had one within the past two years), you may be eligible to file a claim. Please contact Peiffer Wolf by filling out an online contact form or by calling (314) 669-3600 for a FREE Consultation.

GameFly VPPA Claims | What is GameFly

GameFly is a privately held American online video game rental subscription service. It specializes in providing games and related products for Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft systems starting from the sixth generation onwards.

In many games and products that are offered by GameFly, video “cut-scenes” are included to augment and/or contribute to the player experience. Interrupting the gameplay, cut-scenes are sequences in a video game that are not interactive. These cut-scenes included tracking “pixels” which can collect visitors’ confidential information and monitor their navigation through the website. Because GameFly has included these pixels and allegedly shared that data with social media companies, including Facebook, GameFly subscriber’s gameplay and video viewing history and data has been unlawfully disclosed.

Additionally, GameFly offers movie rental and streaming services. Like the Crunchyroll case, we believe that the disclosure of video viewing history to companies like Facebook violates the VPPA and are representing subscribers of GameFly to protect their rights.

The Video Privacy Protection Act | What to know

In 1988, the Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA) was enacted at a time when streaming services and video content websites were still distant prospects. Recognizing the need to adapt the VPPA to modern technology, an amendment act was introduced in 2012, known as HR 6671, which subsequently became public law in 2013.

The Video Privacy Protection Act Amendments Act of 2012 specifically clarified that “a video tape service provider may obtain a consumer’s informed, written consent on an ongoing basis and that consent may be obtained through the Internet.”

Despite the provision allowing for the acquisition of consumer consent through the internet, some websites allegedly choose to share their consumers’ personal information with companies such as Meta, Google, and others, without obtaining explicit permission.
