Data Breach & Class Action FAQs

If you are concerned that your confidential personal information has been taken in a data breach, you likely have many questions. Here are the questions we receive most often from our clients:

What is the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)?

As of January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) gives consumers new legal rights to control what companies do with their private information. Notably, if your personal information was stolen or disclosed as part of a data breach, then, under the new CCPA, you may be entitled to anywhere between $250 and $750 per incident.

Am I still entitled to cash for a data breach even if I don’t live in California?

The CCPA doesn’t just protect only Californian residents. If you live outside of California, but a company doing business inside of California that meets certain requirements caused your personal information be stolen, you may still have a claim, but you should contact our team to find out.

Will I have to pay attorneys’ fees before my case is resolved?

No. At Pietz & Shahriari, LLP, cases brought under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) are undertaken on a contingency basis. You pay no attorney fees to our firm until your CCPA case is resolved.

How do I know if my information was part of a data breach?

DataBreachJustice.com frequently updates a list reported data breaches under active investigation. If you were a customer of a company with a reported breach during the time of the breach, then you can contact our team to find out if you may be entitled to compensation.

I received a notice of data breach, what can I do?

Under the CCPA, many companies are now required to provide consumers with notice if their information has been included as part of a data breach. If you received a notice like this, explaining that your information was included in a breach, but you don’t see the company on the list of breaches being tracked, you should contact our team to learn more.

I’ve already been a victim of identity theft, what can I do?

Often, when a company leaves your private information vulnerable and it is stolen by hackers, the result is that you find out your identity has been stolen, such as through discovering that fraudulent tax returns, car loans, credit cards, lines of credit, etc., have been opened in your name. The company responsible for the breach may owe you for the costs of fixing the problem, such as paying for credit monitoring. But the company responsible for the breach may also have to pay you cash. If you believe you may have been the victim of identity theft, you should contact our team.
