Lloyd vs. Google

The Case

The claim related to the Safari Workaround by which Google circumvented the default iPhone security settings in order to harvest browser generated information of users.

Why It’s Significant

As the expected class of users affected exceeded 4 million, the case was brought as a representative action under Rule 19.6 of the Civil Procedure Rules. After decisions going both ways at first instance and on appeal, the Supreme Court ruled that the case could not proceed as a representative action. The decision however is important both on the scope to seek redress for breaches of data protection legislation in England and Wales and also on the potential to bring representative actions within that jurisdiction.
