How to claim compensation for data breaches.
The General Data Protection Regulations GDPR are EU regulations brought into force in this country by the Data Protection Act 2018.
If your data has been disclosed without the necessary permission or justifiable reason you may have a claim for compensation.
Compensation for data breach is usually in 2 parts:
- You can usually recover something for the breach itself and any distress that the breach has caused you.
- You may have suffered financial loss as a result of the data breach and can claim for this also.
