Data is the most private and important asset of a company, organisation or an individual. Damaging or stealing that data can bring the person or their business serious harm. Similarly, no one has the right to reveal your personal information.

If you are a victim of a data breach and are now looking to claim compensation, our team can help you with the legal complexities from the beginning till the end of your claim.

What is considered a data breach?

Under the data protection act and human rights act, your personal information or any data associated with you has to be protected and secured. Yet your data gets breached, stolen, or modified against you.

Some popular examples of data breaches are;

  • False and out of context\date information.
  • Keeping an individual’s data longer than necessary.
  • Not being able to secure a person’s data from hackers and thieves.
  • Modifying the actual data to hurt the person.
  • Using data for a purpose other than what it was intended for.

There are several other ways by which your data can be breached. It is best to contact us for a free consultation call where we will help you with all your queries.

Who can have my personal data?

If you look closely, there are several organisations that can and have stored the data of millions of individuals. They store your personal information and personal data. Some of these organisations are;

  • Local governments\councils
  • Local authorities
  • The NHS
  • The police
  • Schools
  • Her Majesty’s Courts & tribunal service (HMCTS)

They need your personal information to perform their regular duties.

But If there is any chance that these public bodies are responsible for misusing your personal information then our team can help you claim compensation.
