GDPR and Data Protection Advice for Individuals

Under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018, any personal data about you controlled or processed by a business must be treated and protected in very specific ways. Individuals now have greater rights to ensure their personal data is being treated appropriately, that it is safeguarded when held by a third party, and that they have access to it if needed.

If any of your personal data is lost by a third party, it can be potentially stressful and damaging. Identity theft and cyber-crime are always in the news and any personal data lost by a business can give criminals the information they need to perpetrate crimes. 

On that basis, businesses have obligations when particularly serious data loss occurs to notify individuals and keep them appraised of the steps being taken to address the breach.  In the event that any loss is suffered, it may be that you have a claim for compensation if the data that has been lost has resulted in any loss or harm.

Our highly experienced team of data protection lawyers can advise you on your rights under GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018. We can then guide you through any action you need to take where you want to find out more about the data a company holds on you or have suffered as the result of your data being lost by an organisation.
