As of May 2018, GDPR legislation has been signed into Irish law, meaning companies now have a greater duty of care over how they collect, store and use the personal data of their clients. This legislation also places far greater penalties on companies who breach data protection laws which stipulate that data must be accurate, current, accessible to you and used for the purpose that was declared to you at the point it was collected. If the data is no longer being used for the stated purpose, the company must then delete it. Your personal data is incredibly valuable and is something that needs to be handled responsibly, though many people are not even aware that they have suffered from a data protection breach, which is why we at MyCase Solicitors are here to help. Our dedicated team of experienced GDPR solicitors have assisted numerous clients in receiving the compensation they are owed due to misuse of their personal data.

A significant GDPR breach has been in the news lately. The Data Protection Commission found that one of Ireland's largest financial institutions, Bank of Ireland, altered the data of some 47,000 of their customers. Some of this incorrectly modified data indicated that customers were in financial distress, a move that could have damaged individuals' credit history.
The Data Protection Commission found that the Bank of Ireland had breached GDPR. This resulted in a fine of €463,000 being handed down to the Bank of Ireland.
This case highlights the need for institutions to take the protection of private information seriously. It also demonstrates how individuals should demand that their data be handled professionally and responsibly. For more information regarding this GDPR Breach, please see the below media links
