We have agreed to take No Win, No Fee legal action forward having assessed what has happened based on the information that has been provided to us by those who have asked us for help.

The SIXT data breach is understood to have stemmed from a cyberattack involving a HR database. According to information that has been provided to us for those who we represent, information that has been potentially compromised could include: names; dates of birth; marital statuses; bank details; and other general information, such as contact details.
Those who have been affected are receiving correspondence confirming the nature of the breach and advice in terms of what they may need to do.
We have already been contacted by people who have been affected by the SIXT data breach and have requested our help. Victims of a data breach such as this could be entitled to claim compensation in accordance with the GDPR whether they are a current or former employee.
The GDPR can allow the victim of a cyberattack to claim damages for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of their personal information. You do not have to have lost any money to be able to make a claim, but this can be factored into a case if this is applicable.
For those who have contacted us, we have agreed to represent them on a No Win, No Fee basis as we believe that there may be a case to answer here. If you have received confirmation that you have been affected by the SIXT data breach, please do not hesitate to contact us now for free, no-obligation legal advice.
You could be eligible to claim data breach compensation in the UK, and the GDPR is there to use in order to do this. The GDPR is not just there to manage good practice and procedures that organisations must have in place to protect information in their charge, it is also there to use in the event that something has gone wrong.
Ultimately, if you have lost control of your personal information, that is when you may be able to pursue a legal case if this has caused you to suffer any form of distress. The law entitles us to control over who knows what about us, which is only right: especially as so much information is now being stored and processed in today’s digital age. Information should only be used and stored when it is required, and it should be protected to avoid any leaks or disclosure without consent.
Hackers know that information can be a key commodity to make money from which is why they routinely target organisations to try to steal information in their charge. If more could – and should – have been done by an organisation to have prevented a cyberattack from occurring, that is when the victims could be eligible to claim compensation.
