BA announced on the 7th September, 2018 that there had been a breach of its security systems leading to more than 500,000 customers like you having their personal data leaked. The Guardian reports that BA is now facing a £183m fine for their “poor security arrangments”.
This sensitive personal data included full names, debit/credit card numbers (including expiry dates and CVV’s), addresses and email addresses. The breach has led to all customers being required to monitor financial transactions on their debit/credit cards and potentially cancel/request reissuance of their payment cards.
BA’s response has been to only offer to reimburse customers who suffer “direct financial losses” and to offer “credit rate monitoring.” This is not good enough.
Under Article 82 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) you have a right to compensation for non-material damage. This means compensation for inconvenience, distress and annoyance associated with the data leak.
This is not the first time that BA’s IT systems have failed. BA have treated their customers poorly over the past few years and it is time to stand up to them and take action.
By joining a group action with thousands of others like you led by the experts at SPG Law, you have the best chance of ensuring you receiver the highest compensation possible from BA.
