As a lawyer I would say the element of proof of damages is on the individual who claims to have suffered a loss as a result of "personal data" being kept by a site. If someone can't prove that your use of their data caused them harm they have no case. Therefore, I would hope you are correct in your assessment that any such case would be summarily dismissed.
