WHAT ARE WE DOING TO HELP PEOPLE CLAIM EMMA’S DIARY breach compensation?
People who used the Emma’s Diary app might feel distressed to find out that they were manipulated in this way. Especially as the integrity of our democratic processes is at risk of being disrupted because of such behaviour.
But, while the ICO has imposed a fine on Emma’s Diary for failing to meet its data protection obligations, it does not award compensation to victims. So this is little help to people who have had their trust broken.
However, once an organisation has been found guilty by the ICO – as in this case – you can use that information to support a data protection compensation claim.
At Hayes Connor Solicitors, we have received queries from people concerned that their information was used by Emma’s Diary in a way they did not agree to. In response, we are preparing to launch a group litigation action to help people to claim Emma’s Diary breach compensation.
We have appointed Barrister Ian Whitehurst to help in this case. Having developed a practice in the field of data breach claims for individuals and companies who have had their personal and sensitive data breached, we are confident that our team will get the results our clients deserve.
