Claiming compensation for gaming site data breaches

Victims of a gaming side data breach could be entitled to claim compensation in accordance with the GDPR. The law can entitle the victim of a data breach to claim compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information.

In recent years, the number of gaming site data breach incidents has increased, and more and more gamers are reporting that they have had accounts targeted or hacked. There is a lucrative business for cybercriminals to try to gain access to people’s accounts, because they can then sell the accounts for profit.

With much of the online gaming industry monetised by focusing on players building their characters and accounts, there can be a lot of value in someone who has built up their account over several years. They may have spent a great deal of money on it and earned value on the account by playing the games. All hackers need to do is gain access to somebody’s account and they could sell that account to somebody else, misusing its value to make money.

The threats are real, and a recent insight I came across suggested that more than half of people who are frequent online gamers had had an account compromised.

If you have been the victim of a data breach, and the incident arose from simple negligence on the part of somebody else, you could be entitled to claim compensation. For example, if your account details are leaked or exposed through no fault of your own, that is when you could be eligible to pursue a case. You can speak to our team for free, no-obligation legal advice here now.

Group and multi-party action events

It can be easy for a group or multi-party action event to stem from a gaming site data breach if the site/platform itself is successfully hacked. If criminals are able to steal account information because they have been able to break into systems and servers, swathes of usernames and passwords could then be misused.

We do represent clients who are engaged in data breach group action events that stem from the online gaming industry, and we do offer No Win, No Fee representation if we consider that there is a case to pursue. Again, if you have been involved in this kind of incident, please do make sure to contact our team for free advice here.

Data breach compensation amounts

When it comes to the kind of data breach compensation amount that you could be entitled to receive, it is all about the impact on you. This can be subjective, as different people could suffer greater distress than other people, just because of who they are. But we can consider factors such as the nature of the information affected, and how much is involved.

Whilst online gaming is not for everybody, we understand that people dedicate a lot of their time to their online gaming, and it can take several years to build up a quality account. To have that taken away from you through no fault of your own can be understandably very distressing, and we can make sure that this is reflected in any data breach compensation pay-outs and amounts you could be entitled to receive.
