What is Data Loss?

Your personal data is an important basic human necessity. However, no corporation or organisation, despite the type or size, is 100% protected and safe when it comes to data. A large number of organisations are missing the mark with regards to data security. Human error can lead to data loss and then the potential for cybercrime, which means that sensitive data isn’t as fully ensured and protected as it ought to be.

Data loss can result in both identity or financial theft,  the consequences of which can be extremely devastating. That’s why it’s important for you to know your rights when it comes to data protection and potential claims for data loss compensation.

Data loss is any type of event or process that results in information being corrupted, erased, or potentially made unusable by software or the user. It can be intentional or unintentional, and is similar in some ways to data breach, in that data is compromised, but the difference with data loss is the data itself is destroyed rather than just ending up in the wrong hands .

Types of data loss can be human error such as accidental deletion, hardware or file corruption such as viruses, or mechanical failure.

Can I Make a Data Loss Claim?

Absolutely. Companies are bound to follow the Data Protection Act 2018 (GDPR) to keep your information secure. This implies that they should take measures to forestall unlawful or unapproved handling of your own personal information.

They should also ensure to protect against unplanned loss or damage to your own data. If you’re aware that an association has lost your own information, there are steps you can take to secure yourself and claim your guaranteed compensation. 


The restriction period for making a data loss claim is currently six years. This implies that all breaches of information returning six years are subject to a claim. With these terms, it’s essential to act now. So you can contact us and we’ll handle the rest.

Frequently asked questions & Useful InfoQuestions we are frequently asked by our users

What Are Data Loss Claims?

There are many reasons and types of data loss, but you can’t simply make a claim if it’s just any type of data loss. You are entitled to data loss compensation if you have suffered the following forms of losses.

  • Crime – Hacking, theft, sabotage or an SQL injection.
  • Computer failures/virus – natural disasters, data corruption, software or hardware malfunction.
  • Human error – accidental and intentional deletion, such as a program or file deletion, misplacement of data, or administration errors.

Is Going to the Court Needed For Getting My Data Loss Compensation?

Most cases are settled without the requirement for court procedures. The initial step is to send a letter of claim to the organisation that lost your data.

The organisation will often respond by way of admitting to the breach that was created. Your claims handler will then help you accumulate proof and evidence to help support the stress and financial loss suffered as a result of the data loss. This is done before proceeding to negotiate a settlement of your claim.

If a settlement is not accepted and agreed, then we may need to proceed to court. However, the whole process will be handled on your behalf so you there is no need to concern yourself with all the technical issues of the case.

Is There a Way to Prevent Data Loss?

There are different strategies to avoid data loss. However, the same method will not cover all types of data loss. 

The most frequent reason for data loss is because of unsaved data. It’s important to back-up your files frequently, as it can go a long way for any system to recover from a data loss event. Setting up a two-step protocol will be effective as well, since it requires you to confirm file deletion. 

It’s also beneficial to get a battery or backup generator to secure you against natural disasters and power failures. Less frequent occurrence is computers having specific kinds of hardware or software failure.
