Privacy Claims

Although becoming less prominent in the mainstream media, privacy claims are still very much available to those who have suffered such infringements. The development of the law in the fields of data protection has meant that privacy claims are often coupled with claims for mis-use of data. The synergy between the two legal channels are clear given that the House of Lords Joint Committee on Human Rights identified these core similarities in their report some 10 years ago.

To be able to properly bring or indeed defend, robustly, privacy claims, your lawyer must be able to consider the complimentary elements of both privacy claims enshrined in Article 8 of European Convention on Human Rights and the Human Rights Act 1998 and the relevant Data Protection Statutes. These claims could be in relation to press or media coverage about your private, family or commercial life, or the use of your private material, such as photographs, videos or documentation without consent.

Pinder Reaux is currently advising a number of individuals in relation to privacy complaints, including, a TV personality, a high profile international businessman and a private individual wrongly accused of violent and sexual offences.

If you wish to seek advise on whether your privacy has been infringed then please contact the Pinder Reaux team now.
