Misuse of Police database for personal use data breach compensation advice

police data breach claims

Taking advantage of the police database for personal use can amount to an extreme breach of privacy and an abuse of power by the individual accessing the information.

Accessing the police database for personal use means that the person who is accessing personal and sensitive data does not have the authority or right to do so, and it may not relate to any past or active cases of the individual.

In many cases, the data breach victim is known to the employee and it is a case of data snooping. Data breaches of this nature can be severe and may involve someone the police officer has a negative relationship with, meaning the risks can be significant. Under no circumstances should staff abuse the police database for personal use. If they do, and you have been a victim of a data breach of this nature, you could be eligible to make a data breach compensation claim with the Data Leak Lawyers today.

Police accessing confidential information: data breach advice

Greater Manchester Police data breach

Cases where the police accessing confidential information has amounted to a data breach is not something that anyone should take lightly, and victims do have rights.

The police service and its employees will have access to a great deal of personal and sensitive data to be able to do their jobs. Access to police computer networks and files on investigations and criminal records is a requirement for many. However, like anyone else, the police and its employees must still comply with important data laws and the GDPR. Access and use of information should only be carried out when there is authority and purpose to do so.

If someone does breach data protection laws at the police service, do not worry about having no rights because you are going up against law enforcement. You do have rights, and we may be able to help you. We may also be able to offer No Win, No Fee representation for a legal case.
