It may be the most wonderful time of the year for all the right reasons, but the festive season, and the weeks leading up to it, can be a hotbed for privacy events that could entitle you to pursue a retail data breach claim.

In the BA data breach group action we are involved with, where payment card data was exposed, our initial estimates for potential damages is in the £6,000 region.
