The event has been confirmed by my employer in writing to the address of my residence. The employer has also included a free access through the htttp://partner.protectmyid.co.uk website for monitoring the data, where you can control or detect possible complication attempts associated with this event. My question is, I would like to kindly ask you for a reply, whether as an employee will I be able to pursue any possible compensation for the loss of personal data under data protection acts.How I should proceed.
