What is this case about?
This case involves CVS Pharmacy, a nationwide pharmacy brand, and its online services offered through its website and mobile app. These services allow customers to order retail and prescription items for delivery or in-store pickup and manage pharmacy-related activities, like scheduling flu shots. However, an investigation by The Markup discovered that CVS was one of a several consumer pharmacy companies sharing sensitive customer information with third-party advertisers. This sharing occurred through tracking pixels on CVS's webpages, which transmitted data about items customers added to their virtual carts. Notably, even when customers added medical products like over-the-counter treatments or tests, this information, including product names and descriptions, was sent to advertisers such as Google and Facebook. For instance, specific details about items like Plan B or at-home HIV tests were shared with these third parties. This claim alleges that these practices violated certain state privacy laws.
