We continue to fight for the rights of people affected by the Watford Community Housing data breach event that took place in early 2020.
Thousands were affected by the email leak, and we were immediately contacted by concerned victims. Having quickly assessed that there was a case to answer, we launched No Win, No Fee legal action without delay.
You may still be in time to start a claim if you have yet to do so, but do not delay. Contact the team here now.
About the Watford Community Housing data breach action
The Watford Community Housing data breach group action is one of the dozens of data group actions that we represent people in. This particular action stems from an event in early 2020 when a spreadsheet was sent to some 3,500 people, with the spreadsheet containing incredibly personal and sensitive information.
We put this into the category of one of those simple and avoidable data leaks. That being said, although its underlying cause is simple, the impact has been substantial for some.
We have been taking claimants forward and launching cases for compensation for victims of this breach since soon after the event hit the media headlines. We have agreed to represent those affected on a No Win, No Fee basis, and we are at quite an advanced stage of the action.
Victims could be eligible to receive thousands of pounds in GDPR compensation. The actual amounts for those affected by this data event can be calculated based on factors such as the nature of the information that has been affected, how much is involved, and how this has personally affected you. Our average data breach settlement for cases generally across the board is just over £6,000.
Are you still in time to claim?
The Watford Community Housing data breach took place in early 2020. This means that we are at an advanced stage for those who we have been pursuing cases for over the last two years, but you may still be eligible to join the action. Whether you can or not may depend on any deadlines that could occur at any time, so we always advise that it is best to start your claim as soon as you possibly can.
It is worth contacting our team here now to find out if you are still eligible to join the compensation action. As we are working on a No Win, No Fee basis, what do you have to lose in pursuing a case?
