    Data Breach - medical records and personal information 11th Sep 18 at 9:36 PM
    Hi all,

    I want your opinion, I was going through an employment tribunal and the solicitor sent the court bundle (which included my full medical report, full details on me and salary details) by standard post. The bundle was never received and the solicitor referred us to the post. I want to be compensated for this major error, god know who has my data.

    What does everyone think?

    What financial loss have you suffered, because that's what you can claim. Otherwise, report it to the ICO.

    Is there a any delivery method that guarantee's that the parcel wont get lost or damaged?

    2 data protection breach threads from old users seems fishy.

    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    The DX System is often used by lawyers to send documents between legal offices. https://www.dxdelivery.com

    That's a good point, and what we don't know is who the recipient of the documents was: if it was the OP then DX won't apply, but if it was the ET then they might possibly be on the DX system.

    Recorded delivery is little more secure, it only gets a squiggle from whoever answers the door and doesn't prove delivery to a specific individual.

    What do you expect them to do? Send it by some highly expensive secure service that demands to see proof of identity before handing it over?

    Yes it is unfortunate but occasionally things like this happen!

    Compensation? For what? Unless you can prove negligence and you have suffered a quantifiable loss forget it!

    Not everything in life leads to compensation you know.

    I would keep an eye on your credit report, but if you did get compensation, the maximum is about 200 to 250 I think.
