You could be eligible to claim compensation for a university student data breach if you have been affected by an incident of this nature and your information has been misused or exposed. Universities and educational institutions can be specific targets for cyberattacks because of the nature of the information that they store and process. There can be personal and sensitive data for students which can include financial information, but data could also include sensitive research information. It is not unheard of for foreign threat actors to attempt to break into university systems to steal research information. If that happens, personal details can also be caught up in an attack and also subsequently misused or exposed.
If it is not a cyberattack that has taken place, you could be eligible to pursue compensation for a university student data breach that has arisen from some kind of leak or inadvertent disclosure. Ultimately, the GDPR affords you your right to privacy. If this is breached, that is when you could be eligible to pursue a case. In short, if your information has been misused or exposed, you could be eligible to pursue a legal case.

When it comes to claiming GDPR compensation, most people are pursuing damages for distress that has been caused by the loss of control of personal information. If you have also suffered any financial losses or incurred any expenses, these can be considered, but they are not essential to pursue a claim.

For us, we think that this means it is well worth your time pursuing a case with us here now seeing as we can offer No Win, No Fee representation as well.
