What is “personal data”?

Personal data is anything that identifies you directly or indirectly. Examples of personal data include your:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Email Address
  • IP address of your home computer
  • Medical records
  • Financial information
  • Biometrics (e.g. DNA/fingerprint evidence held by the police)


There are a number of ways in which a data breach of your rights take place, the most common examples being:

  • unauthorised access by a third party;
  • deliberate or accidental action (or omission) by someone holding your data;
  • sending your personal data to an unauthorised person;
  • computing devices containing your personal data being lost or stolen;
  • alteration of your personal data without permission; and
  • loss of your personal data.

Depending on the type of data breached, the responsible party must inform you of the breach without undue delay and must also notify the Information Commissioner’s Office.

If an organisation has failed to securely store or protect your personal data, you have a right to make a data breach compensation claim. Whether you have suffered as a result of your data being breached or not, our specialist data breach solicitors will help you obtain the compensation you deserve.


There is nothing more personal to you than your data and it is worthy of protection for a good reason. Like any other thing that you own, your data belongs to you.

You should be the one who decides how it is used.


If you think your personal data has been breached, then you could be entitled to compensation for any loss or distress you may have suffered.
