Hello Sue my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Have you actually suffered any loss please?
Sorry I am in Court. How much do you want to claim from them and what information is wrong?
You do have a claim under the Data Protection Act 1998 which states:
13Compensation for failure to comply with certain requirements.
(1)An individual who suffers damage by reason of any contravention by a data controller of any of the requirements of this Act is entitled to compensation from the data controller for that damage.
(2)An individual who suffers distress by reason of any contravention by a data controller of any of the requirements of this Act is entitled to compensation from the data controller for that distress if—
(a)the individual also suffers damage by reason of the contravention, or
(b)the contravention relates to the processing of personal data for the special purposes.
(3)In proceedings brought against a person by virtue of this section it is a defence to prove that he had taken such care as in all the circumstances was reasonably required to comply with the requirement concerned.
You would need to show that you have suffered some loss.
If you can then yes, you have a claim which you can be compensated for, under S.13 of the Act.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
