EasyJet announced on the 19th May, 2020 that sensitive personal data of 9 million travellers had been exposed in a data breach. Despite notifying the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office of the breach in January 2020, EasyJet waited four months to notify its customers.
The sensitive personal data leaked includes full names, email addresses and most disturbingly of all, travel data including departure dates, arrival dates and booking dates. In particular, the exposure of details of individuals’ personal travel patterns may pose security risks to individuals and is a gross invasion of privacy.
Under Article 82 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) you have a right to compensation for inconvenience, distress, annoyance and loss of control of your data.
By joining PGMBM’s group litigation today, together with people from all across the world, you have the best chance of ensuring you receive the highest compensation possible from EasyJet.
We do everything for you and make your claim simple.
If we are successful in recovering compensation for you, you will only pay us a maximum of 30% of your damages.
There’s no way for a company to entirely row back or resolve a situation like the EasyJet data breach. The law states that companies have a duty to protect their consumers’ data, since there’s no way of controlling what happens to that information once protection isn’t guaranteed. The leak of basic information such as your full name and address may not seem too damaging at first glance, but it could be used by third parties towards ideological falsehood and leave you with a real headache in the future. At the other extreme, more sensitive data such as your credit card details could be used for fraudulent online shopping. If your data has been leaked by EasyJet, you have the right to seek compensation for this loss of privacy and for the risks that it may entail.
We believe we will be able to claim up to £2,000 or 2,000 Euros or more in certain cases.
Probably not. If EasyJet insists on defending the case all the way to trial, then a handful of Claimants (likely between 10 and 20) will be selected out of the tens of thousands who will likely participate in this action in order to give evidence. Anyway, going to court is nothing to be afraid of- EasyJet is in the wrong!
Nothing. This is a “no-win, no-fee” case. We don’t get paid unless you do.
A couple of minutes. Once you have signed up, we will be back in touch with you within the next few weeks to obtain the rest of the information which is necessary in order for you to participate in the proposed Group Litigation.
Name, email, address and phone number.
Your information will be reviewed and then it will be determined if you are eligible to join the group litigation- all at no cost to you. There is no risk and all of your information is kept confidential.
All of the lawyers in the proposed group action are committed to obtaining compensation on your behalf as quickly as possible. As EasyJet is one of the largest companies in the UK, however, it may be necessary to take them to court. If a quick settlement is achieved, you may receive your compensation in the next six months but if EasyJet chooses to fight, it could take two years or so.
We will first try to settle your claim with EasyJet by way of a pre-action letter. If that is unsuccessful, your claim may be brought as part of a Group Litigation Order (a “GLO”) which is the mechanism by which the courts in England and Wales manage thousands of cases which are all brought together at the same time.
We will bring claims on your behalf under the Data Protection Act 2018 (which incorporates the GDPR) and in the torts of misuse of private information/breach of confidence.
In the event that it is necessary to litigate, we will arrange insurance on behalf of all Claimants who sign up with us. This will protect you against having to pay EasyJet’s costs in the unlikely event that the claim is lost.
