1      About Data Breach Claims 

These Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) govern your relationship with the Data Breach Claims service (the “Service”) operated by Revoke Limited (“Revoke”, “us”, “we”, or “our”), a company registered with the Jersey Financial Services Commission, Registration Number 124314. 

These Terms tell you who we are, how we act on your behalf, and establish a contractual relationship between you and Revoke. You can read more about our Privacy Policy to understand how we keep your personal data safe. Unless otherwise defined, the terms used in this Terms document have the same meanings as in our Privacy Policy. 

By using the Service, you confirm that: 

  • You are at least 18 years old, 
  • You accept these Terms 
  • The Service is licensed, and not sold, to you, for use only under these Terms 
  • You will use the Service only in accordance with these Terms and in compliance with any applicable law 
  • Your account details will only contain accurate information, will solely hold information regarding yourself, and you will not impersonate anyone or represent anyone other than yourself

We reserve the right to change these Terms at our sole discretion, by posting an amended version on the Service.

All amended Terms automatically take effect from the date of posting, unless otherwise stated. 

Your continued use of the Service will constitute your acceptance of the amended Terms. 

2      How Data Breach Claims Works 

On your instruction Data Breach Claims carries out a dark web search to determine if your personal data may have been hacked or otherwise exposed in a data breach. Once this has been completed you can register your interest in making a legal claim or bringing other legal proceedings against a company who may be responsible for breaching your personal data, we will keep you updated on the options available based on your circumstances. 

The information available on the Service is published for general information purposes only and should not be construed as or relied upon as legal advice, whether in relation to your data protection rights or otherwise. For legal advice, please speak to a qualified legal practitioner. 

 

DBC will partner with a number of specialist legal firms and/or claims management organisations to help progress your compensation claim through the various legal channels available to hopefully achieve a successful outcome for your case. 

3      Authorisation 

By accepting these Terms, you are giving Revoke permission to act on your behalf as described in these Terms (“Authorisation”). 

Data Breach Claims will only act on your behalf to exercise your right to claim when requested by you. 

4      Claims Valuations 

  • Email + Encrypted  Password 
  • Valuations around this type of breach will range depending upon the access that the password allows, across singular or multiple platforms, on average we would expect claimants to recover in excess of £2,000 and potentially up to £7,500 should personal data be extracted and exfiltrated. 
  • Email + Unencrypted Password 
  • Valuations around this type of breach will range depending upon the access that the password allows, across singular or multiple platforms, on average we would expect claimants to recover in excess of £3,000 and potentially up to £7,500 should personal data be extracted and exfiltrated. The failure to encrypt data or passwords may lead to additional consequences and values in individual cases. 

 

  • Email + Address + Phone Number + Password Types 
  • Valuations around this type of breach will range depending upon the access that the information taken allows, across singular or multiple platforms, and importantly what impact this has upon claimants. The more the data breached leads to issues such as fraud the greater the valuation of the claim. On average we would expect claimants to recover in excess of £1,250 and potentially up to £5,000 should personal data be extracted and exfiltrated. 

Customers should note that these potential claim valuations are provided for illustrative purposes. The stated amounts are often referred to as average compensation payments and have either been obtained from commonly reported cases or from previous cases successfully resolved by our legal or claims management partners. 

Please be aware that there are many factors which can influence and impact on the final settlement amount for your case and we would advise you to read the CFA carefully (which accompanies your compensation claim submission) as it outlines how the payment of legal charges, expenses and disbursement will be handled in the event of a successful or unsuccessful outcome of your case.  

All of these settlement transactions are dealt with by the specific expert legal firm or claims management company assigned to handle your case. Revoke is not party to these settlement transactions.   

 

 

5      FEE ARRANGEMENT 

With Revoke: 

As a customer of DBC, Revoke does NOT charge you a fee for using our data breach search services or for registering your compensation claim(s) with us or for sending your compensation claim to our expert legal partners or claims management service providers. These Revoke services are free for you to use. 

Revoke receives an introductory fee from our legal and claims management partners for each qualifying customer/client we pass over to them. This introductory fee can range in value depending on the actual specific data breach case and the complexity of the compensation claim cases.  

Where data breach cases are successfully concluded, with an award being payable to claimants, a success fee is paid to the  legal or claims management partners. Revoke may receive a percentage of this success fee.  

With our legal or claims management partner: 

As explained on our website and app notifications, once you have agreed to submit a compensation claim and agreed to the required Contract, Terms and Conditions and other agreement documentation, you will be agreeing to the fee arrangements as disclosed in the Conditional Fee Agreement (“CFA”). This fee arrangement is between you and the specific legal firm or claims management company, and not with Revoke. 

6 Marketing Communications 

Our website and app notifies you directly, that by performing a dark web search for data breaches, you are opting in to receive marketing communications, from which you can unsubscribe at any time.
