GDPR data breach rights for Virgin Media customers

Virgin Media compensation deadline

When it comes to the GDPR data breach rights of victims whose personal information has been misused or exposed, we are here to make sure that justice is served.

The GDPR can allow victims of a data breach to receive compensation for any distress caused, and for any losses and expenses. Victims of the Virgin Media incident could be eligible to receive thousands of pounds in damages, and we are offering No Win, No Fee representation as a leading firm of consumer action and data breach specialists.

Read on for more information about how this can work. To get started with a case now, just complete the forms here.

About your GDPR data breach rights

Your GDPR data breach rights are enshrined in law. The new legislation that came into force in May 2018 was designed to strengthen information laws and better regulate privacy. The regulations were also designed to ensure that proper punishments can be issued to organisations in breach of the law.

You may know that the UK’s data watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), can now fine offending organisations millions of pounds. Their provisional fines for the British Airways data breach and Marriott incidents that we represent clients for were set at £183m and £99m respectively. These are record-breaking amounts.

However, money recovered from such fines is not designed to be used as compensation. Compensation for the actual victims of a data breach is a separate matter, which is why we are here as specialist lawyers to work for the victims.

The GDPR not only allows the ICO to issue big fines, but it can also entitle victims of the data breach to receive compensation. We focus on the compensation part of the breach and we fight for the rights of those who have been wronged to ensure that they receive some form of justice for what they have to go through.

Our compensation actions are focused on the victims.

What do you claim for?

Your GDPR data breach rights mean that you could be eligible to receive compensation for:

  • Any distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information; and/or
  • Losses and expenses, such as money lost from fraud or stolen from an account.

In most cases, victims of the Virgin Media data breach will be claiming for the distress that they suffer from. It can be incredibly distressing to lose control of your personal information, and the law recognises this. That is why you can recover compensation for it.

When we previously spoke to the media about people’s rights, we set provisional early estimations for damages at up to £5,000.00.
