PageUp Data Breach


PageUp Data Breach

Centennial Lawyers is currently investigating commencing a class action for breach of privacy after the mass data breach in relation to PageUp, a multinational software provider. 



Recently, PageUp notified that their software had been hacked and the  sensitive personal details of thousands of job applicants may have been compromised.

PageUp’s software is used by companies including Telstra and Wesfarmers and many other organisations for job applications. Apparently, it has more than 2 million active users across 190 countries.

The information included in job applications would be extremely useful for identity fraud. Along with birth dates and other identifying details, job applications could potentially include passport details, tax file numbers and bank accounts.


The class action would be commenced on behalf of those affected by the breach.

We are taking expressions of interest from persons who may have been affected by the PageUp mass data breach.

There is no cost to join the class. Centennial Lawyers will only be paid if the action is successful as defined in the costs agreement with the lead plaintiff.

If you would like to register your interest in joining the class of persons affected by the breach or request further information, please submit the form below:-

The nature of the information held by PageUp, goes to determining the seriousness of the breach. The more sensitive the information held is, the greater the obligation on the service provider to saeguard that information.

Your details will remain strictly confidential.

Class actions can be commenced by one (or more) of the persons representing the class, where:-

  • 7 or more persons have claims against the same person; and
  • the claims of all those persons are in respect of, or arise out of, the same, similar or related circumstances; and
  • the claims of all those persons give rise to a substantial common question of law or fact.

The proceedings would be run as an open class and the lead plaintiff represents all class of persons whose information was breached.
