Users of the business networking site LinkedIn may have some money headed their way.

The site has agreed to shell out $13 million to settle a lawsuit over the site’s “add connections” feature.

The feature would access members’ contacts and send out multiple emails to get others to sign up, and this upset people.

To see if you’re eligible for compensation from this lawsuit and submit a claim, click here.

LinkedIn users can get up to $1,500, but the payout is based on how many people file a claim, so you may actually receive less than that amount.

The deadline to file a claim is Monday, Dec. 14.
