When it comes to your GDPR compensation rights as a victim of the Virgin Media data leak, you could be eligible to recover damages for any distress that you have suffered as a result of the incident.
We continue to represent thousands of people on a No Win, No Fee basis who are a part of our Virgin Media group action for justice. You can find out if you are still in time to join the claim by completing a few forms on our website here now.
Your GDPR compensation rights could, essentially, allow you to recover compensation if you have suffered as a result of the loss of control of your personal information through no fault of your own. The GDPR is not just there to govern the best policies and practices for organisations to follow, but is also there for victims to use in the event something has gone wrong.
The law can allow you to recover compensation for distress as a form of “injury to feelings”. This can mean that you could be entitled to claim compensation for any anxiety, stress, worry, anger, and other adverse feelings that have been caused by you losing control over your right to privacy. In most cases, people will not suffer losses or expenses as a result of a data breach but, if these are applicable, you can add these to a claim as well. However, the important thing to know is that you do not have to have lost any actual money or paid out any actual expenses to be able to claim, as you can pursue a case solely for the distress that you have suffered.
When it comes to your GDPR compensation rights as a victim of the Virgin Media data leak, if you were notified that your information was involved in this incident, you may have a claim to pursue.
Most people had at least personal details exposed when the Virgin Media database in question was left accessible online due to a configuration error. Unfortunately, in some cases, people also had additional sensitive information exposed but, whichever category you are in, your GDPR compensation rights could allow you to pursue a case.
