Compensation for a sensitive data protection breach

You could be entitled to claim compensation for any breach of the GDPR, but it is particularly important to seek advice when you have suffered as a result of a sensitive data protection breach.

When it comes to how we define sensitive information, this could be a little bit flexible based on the circumstances of the individual, and it can also depend on the context of the individual as well. Broadly speaking, we can consider information such as medical data or private domestic information as potentially sensitive, as this is exactly the kind of data that you would not want everyone knowing about. Certain medical and domestic information could also carry negative connotations, which is something that we do not want people knowing about.

When we pursue cases and assess how we value the damages and pay-outs, we do look at the nature of the information involved and how this has affected the individual. As such, when it comes to sensitive data protection breach claims, there is sometimes a requirement to have more care in respect of making sure that our client is looked after and can access the justice they deserve. Generally speaking, it can be a case of, the more a person suffers, the more a claim can be worth. As such, this is something that we can account for in a sensitive data protection breach matter because the distress that the victim can suffer from can be substantial.

The GDPR can allow a data breach victim to recover compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information. If we believe that there is a valid claim to make, we could represent you for a case on a No Win, No Fee basis. The best thing to do is to contact our team for free, no-obligation legal advice.

Example: we-vibe data breach compensation action

One of the most infamous sensitive data protection breach matters that has taken place in recent years was that of the we-vibe data breach compensation action. We have represented people affected by this, which is where information about the use of smart sex toys was being recorded without the clear consent of the users.

This was a serious data protection breach and a massive invasion of privacy.
