The Data Protection Act and related laws and regulations are designed to protect your personal data from exploitation by banks, employers and other data controllers. Griffin Law has proactively used the data protection legislation to assist clients who are involved in disputes as a means to force opponents to disclose documents that they might otherwise not choose to disclose for a number of months during litigation.
The Data Protection Act entitles those whose data is unlawfully processed to compensation for damage and distress. Cavalier data controllers, who all to often fail to provide a data subject’s personal data in full, on time or accurately, find themselves on the receiving end of substantial claims and counterclaims. Rather than facing the cost and embarrassment of court action or an investigation by the Information Commissioner, data controllers increasingly acquiesce in resolving disputes and correcting their procedures. We are able to assist in this correction process.
Griffin Law can help to protect your personal data, in addition to advising on what to do in the event of a breach. To discuss how the experts in this area can help you, please contact [email protected] or use our contact form to send us a message.
