Mountain View, CALIFORNIA — You could get cash from a class action settlement if you used Google's search engine. You are eligible if you used Google between October 25, 2006 and September 30, 2013.

It’s part of a lawsuit that alleged the tech giant violated users’ privacy by sharing their search terms to third-party websites.

Anyone who’s used Google to search and clicked on a link in its search results between Oct. 25, 2006 and Sept. 30, 2013 can submit a claim.

Google agreed to pay $23 million to settle a 2013 class action lawsuit accusing the tech company of violating user privacy. Google denies the allegations that it shared user search terms with third-party websites, and the settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing.

The website says the average payout will be around $7.70 per person.

To qualify, claims must be made online before July 31, 2023.

Before submitting a claim, users must first register to receive a class member ID. According to the website, a class member ID is needed when filing a claim.
