Special category data compensation claims

Special category data is personal information that is afforded particular protection in accordance with the GDPR because of the nature of what it is.

The law recognises that you have the right to control who knows what about you, and it also recognises that certain information requires particular attention and control. This is the type of information that is often categorised as “special category”, and the need to protect it is vital.

Your Lawyers, as Leading Data Leak Lawyers, represent thousands of people for cases and we may be able to help you now – our team can offer free, no-obligation legal advice here now.

data minimisation principle
August 10, 2022

Data minimisation principle and claiming compensation

The data minimisation principle is an essential part of data protection law in the UK to allow us to have greater control over who knows what about us, and why they store our information.

Any abuse of this principle could be a breach of the GDPR. A breach of the GDPR can entitle a victim to claim compensation for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of personal information. In such a case, we may be able to represent eligible claimants on in No Win, No Fee basis.
