Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. Data Security Litigation

Welcome to the Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. Data Security Litigation Settlement Website

A settlement (the “Settlement”) has been proposed with Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. (“Arby’s”) in lawsuits asserting claims against Arby’s relating to a data security incident that occurred between October 8, 2016 and January 12, 2017, arising from a third-party criminal cyberattack affecting certain of Arby’s corporate-owned restaurants involving the placement of malware on point of sale systems targeting customers’ payment card information (the “Data Breach”). Arby’s denies all of the claims. The Settlement does not establish who is correct and is not an admission of fault, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit.


The Settlement includes, subject to certain limitations, all residents of the United States who used a debit or credit card to make a purchase at an affected Arby’s restaurant during its exposure window (“Settlement Class”).  Not all Arby’s corporate-owned restaurant locations were affected by the Data Breach; only certain restaurants were affected and at various times.  A list of impacted Arby’s restaurants and the exposure window of the Data Breach for each affected location is available here or under the Case Documents tab of this website.


The Settlement makes certain members of the Settlement Class who submit valid claims eligible to receive cash payment for certain documented unreimbursed out-of-pocket expenses and time spent that resulted from the Data Breach. The Settlement also provides to all members of the Settlement Class who are not already enrolled in an identity theft protection service the eligibility to enroll in up to 24 months of free identity theft protection services from Experian.
