Can I Make A Data Breach Compensation Claim?

The UK General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 2018 outline a data controller and data processor’s responsibilities to protect your personal data.

If they fail to adhere to these pieces of data protection law, you may be entitled to seek compensation for a data protection breach. However, certain criteria must be met. This includes proving:

  • A data controller or processor failed to adhere to data protection law.
  • Their wrongful conduct caused a personal data breach to occur.
  • As a result, you were affected financially or psychologically.

Data breach compensation amounts in the UK can address the way in which you have been impacted by your personal information being compromised.

How Long Do I Have To Make A UK GDPR Data Breach Claim?

If your personal information has been compromised due to a breach of the UK GDPR, compensation can only be awarded to you if you meet the relevant eligibility criteria. Additionally, your personal data breach claim must also be started within the correct time limit.

Generally, you will have six years to launch your claim.

One of the benefits of working with a solicitor on your case is that they can help ensure that your claim is filed within the correct limitation period.
