Whether it is the information of a parent, child or both that has been misused, exposed or otherwise compromised, there may be a case to make. Any DWP data protection breach can be the cause of significant distress for the victims, but when it comes to a matter involving child maintenance, the impact can be severe.
Child Maintenance Service data breaches can lead to the victims suffering considerable distress in a situation that may already be very worrying and be the source of a great deal of anxiety and problems. It is not unusual for there to be animosity between separated parents of a child, and when it comes to the money matters, even where relations are generally amicable, there can still be a lot of problems arising from financial affairs.
This tends to be the catalyst for relations breaking down or at least suffering on a temporary basis. With a child in the middle of it all, it really can be quite complicated.
As such, any misuse or exposure of private information can cause a great deal of added distress for the victims. This can compound an already anxious situation, and we recognise this when we pursue a claim for compensation. Data breach compensation amounts and pay-outs can take these pivotal factors into account.
In some of the worst cases, a simple leak of information can be catastrophic. There may be shared custody arrangements where the personal contact details of a parent are not allowed to be shared with the other. There may be full custody for one parent where the other parent was an abuser, and personal details must be protected. If it is not, the problems that this can cause can be monumental. We have settled claims for tens of thousands of pounds where issues like this have taken place.
The UK’s data watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), recently conducted an audit into data protection at the Child Maintenance Service. One of the overviews of the report in respect of data protection compliance cited that there was an assurance raring of “reasonable”, and that they had “identified some scope for improvement in existing arrangements to reduce the risk of non-compliance with data protection legislation”. Given the nature of the information at stake here, we hope that improvements will be made to bring that assurance rating up to the highest standard it can be.
If you have been affected by Child Maintenance Service data breaches, or perhaps a general DWP data protection breach, we may be able to help you.
