Recently, the Supreme Court rejected a £3bn claim against Google. The landmark decision means individuals are unable to claim compensation under data protection legislation simply because their rights have been infringed. Instead, victims will have to show distress or financial loss as a result of a breach.
For businesses, the judgment in Lloyd v Google will come as an enormous relief. But what does this mean for education institutions across the UK when dealing with individuals’ claims?
In this webinar, we considered how the case has impacted the landscape of data protection claims and how the Court’s current approach to data protection cases impacts education institutions. In particular, we looked at:
Remedies are available to individuals who are considering bringing a data protection claim against an institution
How can an individual claim damages for breach of their data protection rights and how much will those damages be?
The impact of Lloyd v Google on the likelihood of an individual being successful in a data protection claim; and
What other recent Court decisions say about an individual’s right to recover damages for breach of data protection and how this may impact clients in the education sector
With a long-standing involvement in and commitment to the education law sector, our team have extensive experience across all legal issues that affect education institutions. guiding and supporting our clients through challenges and opportunities.
