CALGARY, Sept. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Class action litigation has been launched with the Courts against Home Depot seeking financial compensation for all Canadians whose financial information may have been stolen due to a breach in Home Depot's payment data systems, from April 2014 onward.
Home Depot Canada acknowledged this data breach on September 2, 2014.
"This class action lawsuit seeks Canada-wide compensation against Home Depot for its serious failure to protect customers' privacy and sensitive financial information", said Tony Merchant, Q.C. "People contacting our law firm are concerned about identity theft or other misuse of their personal information. Individuals who have had their privacy breached should be entitled to compensation under Canadian law."
"We think it is likely that tens of thousands of Canadians have been adversely affected. Given our law firm's experience and successful handling of the Winners/HomeSense class action regarding a similar data breach, we intend to pursue this new class action in a determined way to ensure Canadians are compensated and see their privacy protected."
