We are now two years on since the discovery of the Aerial Direct data breach that resulted in personal information being exposed in an unauthorised access event.
Your Lawyers, as leading Data Leak Lawyers, represent thousands of claimants engaged in individual and group action cases. We have been doing so for way longer than many other firms out there, with our privacy claims work dating back to almost a decade.
The Aerial Direct data breach was announced in early 2020 when emails were sent out to those affected to confirm that an unauthorised third party had been able to access some of its customer data. This is understood to have affected both current and some former subscribers to the service.
The information that was accessed was confirmed to be personal details such as names, addresses, birth dates, telephone numbers, and some product information. At the time of the announcement, the company was not sure who was behind the incident.
Aerial Direct provides services for a number of businesses, providing things like IP telephony services and equipment, such as broadband, hosting and fixed-line services. Around the time of the breach announcement, one of its biggest partners was o2, with reportedly over 130,000 customers.
The company was quick to point out that no financial data was affected by the data breach, which is a common thing for organisations involved in data breaches to point out. This does not mean that people are safe from risks, as even personal contact details can be enough for those affected by a data breach to then fall victim to crime and fraud.
The Aerial Direct data breach makes up one of the dozens of group and multi-party actions that our leading team of lawyers are taking legal action for. We are pursuing compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of personal information, which the GDPR can entitle people to receive damages for. We can also factor in any losses and expenses claims, if applicable, although you could be eligible to just claim for the distress alone.
For eligible claimants, we are able to offer No Win, No Fee legal representation, which means that we can waive our legal fees if the case does not succeed, subject to the agreed terms and conditions in place.
If you have been affected by the Aerial Direct data breach, or if you need our help and advice about any other group or individual data breach matter, we can help you now.
You can speak to the team now for free, no-obligation advice about claiming data breach distress compensation, which is the most common form of privacy case that we take forward. Most people do not lose out on any actual money when a data breach occurs, but you could be eligible to claim for the distress alone.
