If you are a victim of a data protection failure involving your contact information, check out our current group actions to see if we are running a claim related to that specific breach.
Personal data is any piece of information that can be used to identify you. This includes your email, phone number and your home address. It’s important to protect this data because if someone gets their hands on it, they could potentially use it for malicious purposes.
Even if a piece of information on its own may not reveal your identity, when combined with other data, it could lead to your personal information being compromised. That’s why UK data protection laws are in place to safeguard your personal data. And, if your contact data has been breached, you may be eligible for compensation.
In more serious cases, the breach of an individual’s contact data could have disastrous consequences, especially when it reveals the location of vulnerable individuals.
At Keller Postman UK, we specialise in data breach group actions. With a group action claim, you and the other victims join together and fight to get compensation. Group actions can be a powerful tool and can have a bigger impact than a single claim.

While each case is judged on its own merits, there are some things we would typically look for when it comes to when claiming compensation following a data breach, cybercrime or other GDPR violation:
With stolen data, cybercriminals can make purchases using your bank and credit cards, apply for credit in your name, set up fraudulent bank accounts and access your existing online accounts.
GDPR failures, cybercrime and data breaches can have a significant impact on you, both mentally and physically. They can cause or exacerbate anxiety, stress and other psychological conditions.
On 10 October 2023, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) issued a reprimand for Optionis Group Limited for a withdrawal of personal data after a cyber-attack.
