Dell Privacy Breach
Purvis v. Dell Technologies Inc. et al.
Nova Scotia Supreme Court File: Hfx No. 500912
On October 1, 2020, Wagners filed a proposed class proceeding against Dell Technologies Inc. and Dell Technologies Canada Inc. The proposed class proceeding is on behalf of customers who had their personal and private customer information breached in June and November 2017 due to inadequate safeguards employed by the multinational computer technology company when employing a third party call centre in India for technical support issues. As a result of the breaches, the proposed representative plaintiff and other impacted Dell customers have been subjected to numerous targeted tech support scams.
The claim alleges that Dell was negligent and did not take appropriate measures to ensure the security and integrity of their customers’ sensitive and personal information. It is alleged that Dell failed to ensure that proper protocols and access were implemented to protect the data, knowing that India is a hub for scams and other phishing and fraudulent attempts to carry out malicious and criminal activities using breached data and information.
