We can help you make a claim for compensation as a victim of the massive Marriott data leak. Here’s a little about the latest since news broke of the incident.

OK, so we have some 500 million customers across the world who are potentially affected by the leak. The leak stems from a breach of their Starwood reservation systems since 2014 and has resulted in a wealth of data being exposed. As well as personal information, account details and bank card information has also been exposed.

Marriott has taken a number of steps in the aftermath of the breach, and legal actions have been initiated.

Information exposed in the Marriott data leak

As a reminder, the information that was exposed in the Marriott data leak was serious. It reportedly included:

  • Names;
  • Addresses;
  • Email addresses;
  • Telephone numbers;
  • Birth dates;
  • Genders;
  • Passport information;
  • Account information for the Starwood Preferred Guest service;
  • Arrival and departure dates;
  • Banking card information.

That’s a serious amount of information to be exposed. It means victims of the Marriott data leak have been at an immediate risk of fraud. Some may have already fallen victim to fraud over the years the data has been exposed.

What’s being done about the Marriott data leak?

Since news of the monumental Marriott data leak hit the press, a lot has happened.

Legal actions have been launched, including huge class actions in America. Here in the UK, we can take a claim for compensation forward if you’ve yet to take any action.

The company has reportedly set up a call centre for inquiries. They have also established an online checking system where you can find out if you were one of the 500 million victims affected by the leak.

The usual 12-month credit monitoring services is apparently being offered to victims. Those affected by the Marriott data leak are being encouraged to change their passwords and keep an eye on their credit files and bank accounts. They are also being urged to contact their banks as well if they haven’t already done so.

Given the wealth of data that has been exposed in this data leak, it’s important for victims to take the steps necessary to protect themselves.
