MY CAMPBELLRIVER NOW - A Vancouver law firm has launched a class action lawsuit against Tinder. Slater Vecchio LLP alleges algorithmic manipulation of the Tinder app and age-based discrimination. Tinder is...
- Hiding prospective matches
- Providing non-paying users with match notifications without showing the matches
- Reducing the number of matches a non-paying user gets if they "swipe right" too often
- Tinder discriminates based on age. Under 30's get Tinder Gold for $19.99/mo. 30+ is $39.99/mo
Age discrimination violates consumer protection legislation in Canada. Similar lawsuits have been filed and settled in the United States regarding this age-based discrimination.
