Any unauthorised access of your personal information could constitute a breach of the GDPR. In such a situation, the GDPR could allow you to recover compensation for any distress and loss that you have suffered.
In many cases like this, it can come down to employees working for organisations who access your data or perhaps snoop on your private information without any reason or authority to do so. In many cases, the perpetrators know the individuals and are essentially accessing their data out of nothing but selfish curiosity. It goes without saying that such an act is completely unacceptable but, unfortunately, it does happen. As society becomes more digitised, we can benefit from greater efficiency. However, without proper management and auditing, the unauthorised access of your information is a risk.
The GDPR can allow the victim of a data breach whose personal information has been misused or exposed to claim compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information. What this means is that you can essentially claim for what we refer to as “injury to feelings”, which can account for any upset, hurt, anger, and worry caused by your right to privacy being breached. You do not have to have lost any money to pursue a claim, and the majority of cases are for distress only.
If you have been notified that an incident of this nature has happened to you, please contact our team for free, no-obligation legal advice here now.
When it comes to snooping incidents in the NHS, and the data breach consequences that can ensue, they can be severe. Not only can any unauthorised access of your data result in you being entitled to claim compensation, but it could also result in prosecutions for the perpetrators involved.
The UK’s data watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), has had to issue several prosecutions over a number of years, and a lot of them involve NHS employees. In many of these cases, as referenced above, it has been a case of NHS staff accessing the medical records of people they know.
This is a serious offence, and anybody who has been affected by such an incident could be entitled to pursue damages by way of a claim for compensation now.
When it comes to medical data breach compensation claims, we are experts in this particular niche area of GDPR compensation claims. A lot of the cases that we pursue for people involve medical information because the distress that can be caused can be significant. We have represented people in some of the most infamous NHS data events, including the 56 Dean Street Clinic Leak of 2015.
