Data Infringement In The UK
Unfortunately, this means that there are more opportunities than ever before for your data to fall into the wrong hands and for your personal and private information to be mishandled, misused, or abused.
If your data has been wrongfully handled and the fallout has caused you emotional or financial injury or damage, then you may be able to make a data infringement claim. At Angelus Law we have a team of solicitors who are experts in the field of data law and claims. We can help you identify how your data was mishandled and assist you in building your case to claim data infringement compensation.
What Is Data Infringement?
Data infringement is the term used when referring to the misuse or mishandling of personal, private, secure, or confidential data. This could be in the form of:
- Access to, or use of, your personal information by an unauthorised third party
- Failure on a business or organisation’s part to maintain up-to-date records or remove records when they are no longer required
- A business making confidential information public
- An identity being stolen to obtain credit cards
- Failure on a business or organisation’s part to put the necessary security measures in place to protect your data from being accessed or used by unauthorised third parties
- Confidential data being copied, stole, viewed, transmitted, or otherwise used by an unauthorised third party
By law, any information that is shared with anyone is protected. That includes your name, address, contact details, and any other information directly linked to you. An even more serious infringement of your data rights is the use of secure and confidential information such as your bank account details, personal identifiable information (PII), personal health information (PHI), and intellectual property. If there has been a data infringement then you are able to make a claim against the company and receive compensation – sometimes even if you have not been financially affected by the data breach.

Data infringement compensation is made for emotional or financial damage or injury. Depending on the infringement and the damage or injury done, you could be eligible for up to a 6 figure settlement from the offending party.
We will help you assess your claim and advise you on what an appropriate claim is, but we will make sure that the compensation is fair and matches the emotional stress and psychological pressure a data infringement puts on you.
