Welcome to the Information Website for the Golf Clubs Away v. Hostway Settlement

This Settlement applies to customers who directly or indirectly subscribed to email services provided by Hostway Corporation and/or Hostway Services, Inc. (“Hostway” or “Defendants”), including email services provided by Defendants’ predecessors, affiliates, subsidiaries and/or parents, and whose email accounts utilized Hostway’s shared servers located in Florida that were “blacklisted” at any time from November 1, 2008, through and including March 31, 2009 (“Settlement Class Members”).

If you received a Notice of Class Action Settlement (“Notice”), it is because the Settlement Administrator has identified you as a potential Settlement Class Member based on internal Hostway documentation. A class action settlement has been proposed in this lawsuit. The lawsuit concerns alleged damages to Settlement Class Members arising from the blacklisting of certain of Hostway’s shared servers located in Florida from November 1, 2008 through March 31, 2009 (the “Class Period”). Pursuant to a proposed Settlement (the “Settlement”), Settlement Class Members may receive a Settlement benefit as described further in FAQ 9.

If approved, the proposed Settlement will resolve this lawsuit, now pending before The Honorable Michael A. Robinson in the Circuit Court for the 17th Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County, Florida (the “Court”). The Court must decide whether to finally approve the Settlement. No payments or Vouchers will be sent until the Settlement becomes final and not subject to appeal. The class action settlement approval process will take at least several months to complete.

If you believe you are a Settlement Class Member, but did not receive a Notice from the Settlement Administrator directly, please contact the Settlement Administrator at 1-855-917-3476 or by emailing claims@HostwaySettlement.com.

The purpose of this website is to advise you of the proposed Settlement and how it may affect your rights. You must decide whether to submit a claim, ask to be excluded from the Class before the Court enters judgment, or do nothing and receive no benefit from the Settlement. You have to decide this before October 5, 2020. Your options regarding this lawsuit are as follows:
