Data breaches

Data breaches frequently occur through the misuse of data or when your personal information is lost, released accidentally or even accessed through hacking. 

Inaccurate data can also be held and this can impact on many aspects of your life such as employment and your ability to obtain finance. Any breach involving your personal information can cause distress and even financial loss.

If you have suffered distress and/or financial loss through what you believe to be a breach of your personal data, or even if you have just been notified of a breach, then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation or to have your data corrected or removed.
