Many affected Mastercard customers are currently being informed by e-mail with the subject “Comparative offer – Mastercard Priceless Specials data leak” that they will receive compensation of 300 euros if they refrain from taking further action.
However, there are also customers who have sued for higher damages. However, Mastercard argued in court that those affected had no claim against the company. Because the payment service provider has processed the data in accordance with the credit card industry’s high data protection standards. They were also stolen from a contracted service provider. The Regional Court and the Higher Regional Court of Stuttgart shared this opinion.
A plaintiff who sued Mastercard for EUR 5,000 in damages later settled with the company.
