Rolla, MO: A potential class action lawsuit has been filed against RadioShack Corp., alleging the electronics retailer secretly tracks the Internet browsing activities of website visitors and shares this private information with third parties.

Filed in Missouri, by plaintiff Stephanie Hanson, the Internet privacy violations class action lawsuit alleges Ms. Hanson visited the radioshack website numerous times during the past five years but was unaware that the company, together with its website operator, GSI Commerce Solutions Inc., had accessed Adobe Flash Player on her computer.

The lawsuit, entitled, Hanson v. RadioShack Corp. et al., Case No. 13-cv-00536, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, seeks to represent a proposed class comprised of all Missouri residents who, within the past five years, had their computers illegally tampered with by RadioShack and GSI. Additionally, the lawsuit is seeking damages for alleged invasion of privacy by unreasonable intrusion, computer tampering, trespassing and more.

The plaintiffs are represented by David L. Steelman, Stephen F. Grant and Patrick J. Horsefield of Steelman Gaunt & Horsefield.
