WHAT IS THIS CASE ABOUT? Two consumers filed class action lawsuits saying that McAfee engaged in certain unfair practices about auto-renewal charges and the advertising of discounts and reference prices. McAfee denies that it did anything wrong. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing.
WHO IS INCLUDED? You are in the “Auto-Renewal Class” if you are in the United States and you: (1) were charged by McAfee for the auto-renewal of any McAfee or Intel Security software from January 10, 2010 to February 10, 2015; (2) your first auto-renewal charge was at a higher price than the price you paid McAfee for your initial software subscription; and (3) that auto-renewal charge was not fully refunded to you by McAfee or fully credited to you on your credit or debit card.
You are in the “Reference Price Class” if you are in the United States and: (1) you purchased from McAfee or manually renewed through McAfee a subscription for any McAfee or Intel Security software from January 10, 2010 to February 10, 2015, and (2) you paid a discounted price for that purchase or manual renewal.
If you received this notice, you have been identified as being in the Auto-Renewal Class, based on McAfee’s records.
WHAT DOES THE SETTLEMENT PROVIDE? McAfee has agreed to provide an $11.50 settlement benefit to all class members in the Auto-Renewal Class. You can elect to receive the $11.50 settlement benefit as cash, but only if you file a Cash Election Form by no later than December 23, 2016. Eligible class members who don’t file a Cash Election Form will instead receive an $11.50 McAfee value certificate good towards the purchase of McAfee or Intel Security consumer products. In addition, McAfee has agreed to implement certain practice changes concerning auto-renewal transactions and pricing advertisements. For more information, visit www.McAfeeWilliamsonSettlement

YOUR OTHER OPTIONS. If you don’t want to receive a cash payment or other settlement benefits and don’t want to be bound by the settlement and any judgment in this case, you must send a written request to exclude yourself from one or both classes, postmarked no later than November 28, 2016. If you exclude yourself, you will not receive benefits from the settlement. If you don’t exclude yourself, you will give up the right to sue McAfee and related entities about any of the issues related to this case. If you don’t exclude yourself, you may object to the settlement or to the request for fees and costs by Class Counsel. The detailed class notice, available at www.McAfeeWilliamsonSettlement
