Ticketmaster data breach compensation action: two years on

Ticketmaster data breach compensation

This week marks the second anniversary of the Ticketmaster data breach compensation action that we launched when victims of the breach were notified about what had happened.

This was one of the first big breaches that took place just after the introduction of the GDPR. We knew it was just a matter of time until a data breach event like that took place, and we immediately started legal action. In fact, we launched the action by way of a formal Letter of Claim to Ticketmaster within weeks of the breach hitting the headlines in 2018.

We now act for a group of victims of the data breach who we are representing for compensation cases on a No Win, No Fee basis. If you have yet to start your case, you should do so ASAP, and we will outline what steps you need to take here.
