A: For $700, maybe. A data breach like that only gives rise to liability if someone else uses that data to harm you economically in some fashion, for instance by getting and using a credit card in your name.

If I were you, I would research what Life Lock or some similar credit and identity theft service costs, tell them you have to consider getting it to protect yourself from its data breach, tell them you demand they pay for the service for two years or so, but it can offset what you are demanding to protect yourself due to its data breach against what you owe it under your title loan.
