What can I do if my personal data has been shared?
Frequently, those in possession of our data breach the rules. For example, if the police wrongly record that a person has a serious conviction and discloses this to third parties, the person will consequently be refused a job and/or sacked by their employer, refused visa clearance, evicted by a local authority from their council property and/or vilified in the local community.
Our Civil Liberties solicitors have a proven track record in such cases. They have succeeded in obtaining compensation for victims of data protection breaches in a number of complex claims in this developing area of law. If you can prove that you have suffered loss as a result of the data breach, we can claim compensation from individuals and organisations who breach the data protection rules. We can also bring challenges under the Human Rights 1998 if we can show that your right to private and family life has been breached.
