Are there any time limits to making data breach claims?

Yes, there is a limitation of six years from notification of the breach. In some group actions however, a court will specify a deadline by which claimants must join if they wish to receive compensation as part of any potential judgment.

The best thing to do is to make a claim as soon as you have discovered that your data may have been involved in a breach. While we may need to wait for the outcome of an ICO investigation before proceeding with a claim, acting at the earliest opportunity is always the most favourable approach.
