If your data has been breached, our solicitors can advise you if you have a data breach claim.
A data breach is where your personal data has been lost, stolen or sold. Data breach can result in financial or identity theft and can cause significant worry and distress.
Data breach often leads to your personal details being disclosed without your permission. It can naturally cause significant worry and distress if you don’t know if your personal information, particularly your credit card details is potentially available to criminals.
At worst, a data breach can lead to identity theft which could lead to criminals applying for credit in your name and accessing your existing bank accounts.
Three things you can do keep your personal details safe
- Change your passwords for any account where your data has been accessed and any other accounts using the same password
- Contact your bank or credit card provider and if you are worried then order a new card
- Be on your guard with any attempts to obtain further information, hackers may already have some of your details.
We act on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis and it will not cost you anything for us to look at your claim.
