What could constitute complaint information data breaches

Complaint information data breaches could be where your personal details linked to an issue or a problem that you have complained about have been misused or exposed. Ultimately, we have a right to privacy, although some organisations may publish or have to publish certain information about complaints, but this should be carefully managed to make sure that people’s identities are not exposed. Unless the data subject consents to their information being publicly available or shared, or where there is a reason to do so, any complaint should really be a confidential matter.

There can be certain connotations when it comes to complaint information data which is why it is wise to make sure that such information is protected. Whilst the GDPR covers our general rights to privacy anyway, we always consider the context of these kinds of incidents and complaint information certainly is an additional consideration.

Claiming privacy compensation now

Anyone affected by complaint information data breaches where your information has been misused or exposed could be eligible to pursue GDPR compensation for a privacy breach. The GDPR can entitle victims to recover damages for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of personal information. If losses and expenses have subsequently been incurred, these can be considered, but they are not essential to pursuing a case.

Our average compensation settlement is just over £6,000 in damages and we can offer to represent eligible clients for cases on a No Win, No Fee basis. With that in mind, the fact that you could be owed thousands of pounds and you could claim your compensation completely No Win, No Fee means that we are happy to say that there should be nothing to lose in starting a case with us.

Group action claims for data breaches

Sometimes it is a case of information being exposed en mass where the data of many people has been affected by a breach. If that has happened, victims could group their cases together into a group action, which can be the efficient way of pursuing many cases from hundreds to thousands or even tens of thousands.

In our time we have launched over 60 group and multi-party legal actions for data breach compensation claims, so this is a niche and complex area of law is one we are well versed in. Our actions include some of the most infamous data breach events, including the British Airways cyberattacks of 2018, the TalkTalk hack of 2015, and the Virgin Media data leak of 2020.
