District Court Rules Software Company Did Not Wiretap Gap, Inc.’s Website Traffic Patterns

    On April 15, 2021, a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California dismissed the plaintiff’s Section 631(a) of the California’s Invasion of Privacy Act claim in the matter of Amber Yale v. Clicktale, Inc., Et. Al., in which U.S. Magistrate Judge Beeler found that the defendants had not wiretapped Yale’s communications with retail company Gap, Inc. by recording the plaintiff’s online activities and digital information such as her IP address, location, browser type, and operating system.

    The court ruled that the software was used to monitor the retailer’s website traffic, not for wiretapping.
