Types of breach of privacy claims

Breach of privacy under privacy law might occur following the publication of private information in newspapers or on social media. Examples of a breach of privacy include the publication of a home address, and references to one’s medical conditions, whether mental or physical health. These examples also include references to sexual preferences or even to sexual acts with a third party, publication of telephone calls or in person conversations where the person whose privacy is breached, had a reasonable expectation that those conversations would remain private. Further examples such as disclosure of private family matters, disclosure of certain criminal convictions, and references to certain aspects of divorce proceedings are also popular breaches of privacy that victims may go through. 

The legal basis for a breach of privacy claim

Privacy law allows you to bring a privacy claim under the common law of misuse of private information, under breach of confidence or under breach of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or Data Protection Act 2018. Often, a breach of privacy claim will include a claim for breach of personal data and in some cases, a claim for defamation or for malicious falsehood. 

Can a breach of privacy occur where the information published is false

Under privacy law, you can bring a claim for breach of privacy even if the information published is false. Private information can be true or false, which means that in many cases, you would not be expected to confirm or deny the truthfulness of the private information which is published in breach of your privacy. Often, where the breach of privacy involves false information, you can also bring, at the same time, a claim for defamation or malicious falsehood.
