Pursue a police data breach legal case

You could be eligible to pursue a police data breach legal case if your information has been misused or exposed by an employee of the police service. It goes without saying that the police have an incredibly important duty to protect the information that they store and process, as much of it is incredibly personal and sensitive. There is no doubt that alleged victims of crime will want their personal information to be secure, and those who are alleged to have committed a crime will also be afforded privacy.

When you pursue a police data breach legal claim, it is about recovering compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information. The GDPR can allow you to recover compensation for this as the standard route of damages. However, in some circumstances, it is important to consider the wider impact. When it comes to police data breaches, someone’s safety could be at risk if their information is exposed or misused. As such, it is incredibly important that breaches are avoided.

We can offer No Win, No Fee legal representation to eligible claimants pursuing police data breach legal claims with us. The best place to start is to contact our team for a free, no-obligation chat about what has happened here now.

No one is above the law

A quick note on this, as some may be worried about how they can go about pursuing the police for a privacy incident. Ultimately, no one is above the law, and the police are subject to the GDPR in the same way that other organisations are. If they commit a breach, a victim can be entitled to recover compensation from them in the normal way.

You do not need to worry as we can do all the legwork for you. We can work as your legal representative to pursue the case on your behalf, and you can leave everything to us as we deal with matters to, hopefully, reach a successful conclusion.

Claim for the misuse of police computer systems

When it comes to the misuse of police computer systems, this is one of the more prominent ways in which victims may suffer as a result of a privacy breach. It could be a case of an employee or a police officer misusing their access rights to police databases and looking at the information of people when they do not have any reason or authority to. In the past, this has often been employees snooping on the information of people that they know, which can constitute a breach of the GDPR and is completely unacceptable.

It is necessary for employees and officers to have access to a significant amount of information to be able to do their job. However, this does not give anyone the right to abuse their right to access and view or process information without any need or authority to do so.
