According to the press release, the class action suit applies to Facebook users in the United States who, between April 22, 2010, and Sept. 25, 2011, visited non-Facebook websites that displayed Facebook's "Like" button.

Facebook will also be required to “sequester and delete” data that has been determined to have been “wrongfully collected” from its users during the class period.
