Mealey's (July 22, 2015, 1:05 PM EDT) -- WASHINGTON, D.C. — AARP did not violate its privacy policy by collecting personally identifiable information (PII) from users of its website, a District of Columbia federal judge ruled June 30, also holding that an AARP member failed to establish any economic injury in her putative class complaint centered on the organization’s purported sharing of users’ PII with third parties via use of website cookies (Ethel Austin-Spearman v. AARP, et al., No. 1:14-cv-01288, D. D.C.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 84261).
