Submit Information   Frequently Asked Questions

Restaurant Brands International and Radar Labs Inc.

A proposed class action has been brought on behalf of all persons resident in Canada, outside of the Province of Québec, who downloaded, accessed or had already loaded one or more of the Restaurant Brands International (“RBI”) apps onto their mobile device on or after February 1, 2019 to the present.

The RBI apps include the Tim Hortons app and the Burger King app.

The action alleges that RBI, with the assistance of its third-party service provider Radar Labs Inc., surreptitiously and pervasively collected personal information of RBI app users, including around-the-clock geolocation information and device information enabling RBI to determine intimate and personal details of users’ lives over which users have a reasonable expectation of privacy. The defendants did this under the pretext of marketing convenient access to coffee and fast food. The action alleges that RBI collected this information in breach of its own privacy policy, in violation of provincial consumer protection legislation, and that RBI and Radar Labs Inc’s actions amount to intrusion upon seclusion.
