Some Trina Turk retail customers were sent notices this week on a proposed settlement to a class action lawsuit against the company.

The settlement includes customers who used a credit or debit card to make a purchase between Feb. 3, 2009 and Feb. 5, 2014 during which time they received a receipt that had the card’s expiration date printed on it. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act prohibits receipts from showing a card expiration date or more than the last five digits of the card number.

Customers interested in joining the class could receive five certificates, each with a value of as much as $50, according to a notice sent via email to some shoppers.

The class action stems from a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last year by Garo Derbarsekian against Alhambra, Calif.-based L2T Inc., which operates Trina Turk stores. Derbarsekian shopped Trina Turk’s Manhattan Beach, Calif. store last year and made a purchase totaling $152.60 charged to a credit card. The receipt for the transaction contained Derbarsekian’s card expiration date.

Consumers have the option of opting in or out of the settlement by Sept. 28, according to the electronic notice.

The company declined comment.
