What is the case about?
The case alleges that Bumble’s Terms & Conditions fail to notify subscribers of their legal right to cancel their Boost subscription and obtain a refund within three business days of purchase in violation of certain consumer protection laws that may apply to all of Bumble’s Boost users nationwide. The case also alleges that for certain users in California, Bumble’s auto-renewal practices violate California law. Bumble vigorously denies these allegations and does not admit fault.
