Home Depot has agreed to a pay customers affected by a massive data breach.

The agreement settles a lawsuit over a 2014 breach in which customer credit cards and email addresses were stolen.

The home improvement store will compensate customers with documented out-of-pocket losses or charges that were never reimbursed.

It will also pay for customers to enroll in identity protection services.

More than 50 million Home Depot customers were affected by that data breach.
