Damages


 
  • Under the GDPR Act 2018, if consumers have suffered damage or distress, they can claim for compensation.
  •  

  • There are no guidelines about how much compensation for a claim under the GDPR Act. It can be as little as between £750 to £1,000 in pre-action settlement or much higher depending on the nature of your case. A recent ruling has also meant that a person or persons if it is a class action, can claim damages from distress even if there has been no actual loss suffered.
  •  

  • If there is a trial, the judge will consider all the circumstances, including the seriousness of the breach and the impact on the claimant in awarding damages.

 

Limitation


 
The limitation period for making a GDPR claim is currently six years.
