Jonathan McDonald quoted by The Guardian and the Evening Standard on the Google Supreme Court decision

Jonathan McDonald has been quoted by The Gurdian and the Evening Standard on the Supreme Court's decision in Lloyd v Google LLC. 

Also reported in Yahoo! Finance and MSN, VerdictComputingTech Round, IT Pro and National Technology News and LBC News.

Reacting to the judgment, Jonathan McDonald said: "Google and countless other businesses – including many who use cookies on their websites without a full understanding of the cookie rules – will be relieved with the court’s finding that a claim founded on the data protection legislation’s provisions providing for the payment of compensation to individuals, requires a claimant to have suffered monetary loss or actual distress.

"The provisions do not require compensation to be paid where data has simply been processed or used in contravention of the law."

He added: "Today will be a wake-up call for technology companies to ensure their data protection operations are watertight and adhering to law."
