Defamation, GDPR and Data Protection FAQs

  • I’m the victim of a privacy or data breach, what can I do?

    If your personal data has been shared by an organisation without your consent, you may have grounds for a claim. Whether it’s a large multinational organisation or a smaller business, there are rules they have to follow when dealing with your data and personal information. If you believe these rules have not been followed and you have been impacted as a result, please get in touch with our GDPR and data protection solicitors who will be able to advise you further.

  • Can I get negative reviews about me online removed?

    If the reviews are negative but reflect a genuine experience, then there is unlikely to be any grounds to get them removed. However, if the reviews are not truthful, defamatory, and threaten your good reputation, it may be possible to have them removed from the internet.

  • What is a data breach?

    A data breach happens when personal information gets accessed, lost, altered, or destroyed. It can happen either accidentally or on purpose. They can happen in various ways, including:

    • Sending emails containing sensitive data to the wrong recipient
    • Leaving sensitive data in places it can be accessed by those who shouldn’t have access to it
    • Data corruption revealing unintended information
    • Sending mass emails without using a ‘blind copy’ function
    • Data theft

    Data breaches can have serious consequences. If you believe you have been a victim of one, please get in touch with our data protection solicitors today.

  • When can I make a data subject access request (DSAR)?

    If an organisation holds or processes any data about you, you have a right to make a DSAR to receive a copy of any data they hold about you.
