The introduction of the GDPR in May 2018 had a major impact on data protection legislation and management here in the UK. The GDPR has provided the UK’s data watchdog – the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) – with much greater rights to be able to issue multi-million-pound fines for privacy breaches. The GDPR can be more effective to work as an active deterrent given the levels of fines that can now be levied, and it can also serve as a proper punishment for what has happened.
All in all, we think that the GDPR has been a good thing because it has also allowed people to have greater control over their information, and greater access to who knows what about them. In an increasingly digitised era, this is important. But, when things go wrong, you need to know your GDPR compensation rights, and that is where we come in.
Your GDPR compensation rights are quite straightforward in that you could be eligible to recover compensation for any distress that you have suffered from that has been caused by the loss of control of your personal information. Ultimately, if an organisation has been negligent in the duty of care they have for your personal data and is found to be in breach of the GDPR, you could pursue them for compensation.
Most people will seek compensation for the distress that has been caused as referenced above, which is based on how you negatively feel about what has happened. The law entitles us to have strict control over who knows what about us because we do not want everybody knowing absolutely everything about us. When this control is taken away from us through no fault of our own, it can be incredibly distressing and that is what the case is all about.
Are you entitled to use your GDPR compensation rights to recover damages for privacy incidents that you have been involved in? The simple way to find out is to contact our team for free, no-obligation legal advice here now.
You could be eligible to pursue a data breach case for an NHS privacy compensation matter, and the distress that can be caused to victims in these kinds of incidents can be significant. Healthcare data is precisely the kind of information that we want to have strict control over because we do not want people knowing everything about our medical histories. When this kind of information is misused or exposed, the distress can be significant. This is why data breach compensation amounts and pay-outs can be substantial in claims of this nature.
Given the nature of the information at hand, the NHS has an incredibly important duty to comply with the GDPR and ensure they are not in breach of your information rights. If they are, any victim could be entitled to pursue compensation in the usual way.
