This will vary depending on the nature of the breach you were in. Factors such as what data was shared, how and where it was shared, and the overall impact it could have had on you. Our average claim is worth £3,000, but we have settled claims for over £9,000. The amount you are awarded in compensation could be more, or less, depending on your circumstances.
You can claim compensation from any organisation which breaches your data. This can be companies you have bought something from, organisations you have supplied data to, former or current employers, government departments – really, anywhere that holds personal data on you.
Ideally, you’ll have an email (or other form of written evidence) from the organisation in question confirming the breach. You can also request information from the organisation if you see they have reported a breach to the Information Commissioner’s Office and suspect you may have been affected. Organisations are required by law to inform you of a data breach, so for the most part you will be contacted if you have been in a breach.
You have six years from the point you were first informed that your information was breached.
