Claiming student data breach compensation is about legal justice for the loss of control, or the misuse, of personal information in an education setting. Whether you need assistance as a university student, or perhaps you are looking into pursuing a claim on behalf of a minor for a school data breach, we may be able to help you.
Students in education settings are, of course, entitled to privacy and confidentiality in respect of their personal information. Schools, colleges and universities store and process a wealth of information, some of which can be particularly personal and sensitive. Data regarding personal domestic matters, or medical information, are sometimes required to assist students with their learning. If this kind of information is exposed or misused, the impact on the victim could be substantial. This is the exact nature of information that we want to remain private.
Even simple personal contact details can cause distress if data has been breached, leaked or hacked. This could especially be the case in the context of the data breach. For example, if a name in an email address has been exposed, but the content of a leaked email is about (for example) assistance or medical matters, it is clear to see how the context of such a breach could cause significant distress.
Victims can be eligible to claim data breach compensation for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of their personal information.
A student data breach compensation claim is a legal case seeking the recovery of damages for distress that has been caused to a victim by a data breach. The GDPR can entitle the victim of a data breach to receive compensation for such distress, which can be significant depending on the nature of the information involved.
You do not have to have lost any money or paid out any expenses to be able to claim. The distress alone can be significant enough to warrant a claim for compensation, with data breach amounts and pay-outs substantial when affected information is particularly personal and sensitive.
If we believe that you have a potential case to pursue, we may be able to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis. We can then write to the opponent with a formal letter of claim, setting out what has happened, why there has been a breach of the law, and why you are entitled to compensation. We will ask that they accept liability as quickly as possible to allow us to move toward a settlement without delay. If they intend to defend the case then it is our job as Your Lawyers to fight for your rights to continue with the case if we believe there are prospects to do so.
You could be eligible to claim data breach damages if your personal information has been misused or exposed. You can speak to our team about starting a student data breach compensation claim and find out if we can help you on a No Win, No Fee basis.
