DATA SUBJECT / CUSTOMER OR CLIENT
If you have been the subject of a data breach - or your received an email stating that your personal data has been affected, accessed or used without your permission - you may entitled to make a complaint to the data protection commission and or receive redress for a breach of GDPR or the Data Protection Act 2018.
Usually, if you have received a notification of a data breach, then the breach was considered serious enough to contact you as a data subject under the Data Protection Act 2008 and or GDPR. This means there was a real risk to your personal data, your property or your personal interests.
The effect of such a data breach could have serious consequences; such as identity theft, fraud and, if applicable, illegal use of your credit card or payment details. Regardless, it can be very upsetting to be subject to a data breach and not knowing whether your data is still secure.
In order to protect yourself, or explore appropriate redress, you may wish to make a complaint about the data breach. If you would contact us with no obligation, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with an outline of how you were notified of your data breach and your contact details.
