What is a Data Violation?

Data is, by far, one of the most essential assets of any company. And with the rise of the data economy, a lot of companies might rely heavily on the amount of data that their clients share with them.

The problem is, for many reasons, data violation might occur by the company, leaking your private information to the public or to other third party companies, whether intentionally or not.

A data violation is the release of privately disclosed information that you may have shared with a company, such as banking details, personal health or disability information, intellectual property information, etc. 

The leakage of data is considered a violation whether the leaked information is intentional by selling them for personal gain or unintentional due to hacking, organised crime, data mishandling or any other reason.

What Are Data Violation Claims?

In 2018, the Data Protection Act came into existence, which included provisions and requirements for handling and processing the personal data of individuals. Since then, it became required by the law that the company protects the information of their clients.

A data violation claim is a legal act that any affected individual or organization can take in order to get compensation for the amount of damage caused to them due to any violation of their personal data.

Can I Make a Data Violation Claim?

As per the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), everyone has the right to claim compensation from a company or organisation if you suffered from some kind of data breach that caused you damage, whether this damage is material, such as a financial loss, or non-material, such as emotional distress.

You can actually claim compensation for both financial and emotional distress that a data violation caused. However, you should keep in mind that the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), although they can directly fine the company in question, won’t award you that compensation.

Instead, you’ll need to make a court claim to get that compensation, which is why you’ll need expert legal advice if you’re planning to make a claim for a data violation.

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

How Much Can I Claim for a Data Violation Breach?

Whether they’re large or small, organisations are obligated by law to apply all the necessary means to keep the information and data of their clients secured. Those who fail to comply put themselves at risk of huge fines and significant financial penalties for the data breach.

In the UK, the Information Commissioner’s Office has the authority to hand out fines that can be as much as £18 million or up to 4% of the company’s annual turnover.

As for personal court claims to obtain compensation, the amount of financial compensation for a data breach relies on many factors, such as the size of the company, the amount of damage that the data violation caused, and more. So, it’s quite challenging to put a specific number on what anyone can get as compensation as each instance needs to be looked at on its own merits.

How to make a data violation claim

Finding the right legal professional to move your case is extremely important, not only to get the maximum compensation for the data breach, but to ensure that the amount of work you need to make a claim is kept to the bare minimum.

Of course, you can always look for a solicitor yourself but these types of claims are better handled by data violation experts who are used to dealing with data claims on a regular basis. If you want to maximise your chances of a successful claim and getting the maximum compensation you deserve, you should turn to an expert company like Data Breach Claims who can introduce you to the legal expertise you need in order to get a satisfactory conclusion to your claim.
