    Request for Exclusion Information:

    You have the right to exclude yourself from (or “opt-out” of) the Class. If you exclude yourself, you will be giving up the right to receive any payment and the right to object, but you will be free to pursue claims individually against Defendant if you wish. Please note that if you exclude yourself from the Class but do not pursue your claims in a timely manner, some or all of your claims may be barred by the passage of time.

    All Requests for Exclusion must be submitted online or be signed and mailed to the Settlement Administrator and postmarked no later than May 18, 2018. You cannot exclude yourself by telephone or by sending an e-mail. If you return a late Request for Exclusion, the Request will be deemed invalid and you will remain a member of the Class and will be bound by all of the terms of the settlement.

    DO NOT SUBMIT BOTH A CLAIM FORM AND A REQUEST FOR EXCLUSION.
    IF YOU SUBMIT BOTH A CLAIM FORM AND A REQUEST FOR EXCLUSION, THE REQUEST FOR EXCLUSION WILL BE DISREGARDED.

    By signing and returning this Request For Exclusion From Class Action Settlement Form, I am certifying that I have carefully read the Notice Of Proposed Class Action Settlement and that I wish to be excluded from the Settlement described therein. I understand that this means I will not be eligible to receive any Settlement Payment and I will not have standing to object to the Settlement or Class Counsel’s Motion for Attorney’s Fees and Costs or Plaintiff’s Service Award. I also understand that, if I am excluded from the Settlement, I may bring a separate lawsuit seeking damages, but that there is no guarantee of the outcome of such case and I might recover nothing or less than what I would have recovered if I had remained part of this Settlement.

    I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the information in this Request for Exclusion from Class Action Settlement Form is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.
