Data Breach FAQs
- How do I know if I can make a data breach claim?
There are a number of steps you can take.
Firstly, use our Data Breach Checker to check to see if your email address has been involved in a data breach. You can add your email into the checker above.
If you use our checker and nothing comes up, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve not suffered from a breach.
You should also check your junk mail and inbox to see if you’ve had an email from any organisation that confirms your data has been breached. If you have this information, please call us and we’ll talk you through your next steps.
- What should I do now I know my data’s been breached?
You need to take some steps to protect your data as soon as you know you’ve suffered a data breach. You should change the password on the affected account and if you use that password on any other online accounts, also change them.
If your card details have been taken, get in touch with your bank as soon as possible so they can cancel your cards and keep an eye on your account in case there are any suspicious transactions. You should also keep a close eye on your statement so you can identify anything fraudulent as soon as possible.
Once you’ve dealt with all of this, get in touch with one of our Data Breach Solicitors, who can talk you through the whole process.
- How long will it take to make a claim?
It really depends on the response of the organisation who breached your data and every case is different. You may also need to make a complaint to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO), which could mean that your claims takes a bit longer.
- How much compensation will I get?
It really does depend on how serious the data breach was and the consequences of it. We’ll talk you through the different amounts you could expect and keep you updated throughout the claim.
- How long do I have to make a data breach claim?
There are time limits to making a data breach claim.
These are usually 6 years from the date of the breach.
But the time limits can be shorter if a group action has already started.
That’s why it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible if you think you might have had a data breach.
- How much will it cost me to make a claim?
We usually deal with claims on a No Win, No Fee basis and we’ll talk to you about your funding options.
