The company has not admitted wrongdoing in the case.

According to the lawsuit, members allege that the company violated the Illinois Public Information Rights Act in collecting and disclosing personally identifiable information.

Illinois law states that a person or entity “may not use the identity of a person for any commercial purpose while that person is alive without first obtaining the written consent of that person.”

Members claimed RocketReach distributed legal names, email addresses, job information, and social media profiles.
