The data subject is also granted the right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority and the right to an effective judicial remedy.  

During the course of the consent-based data processing, the data subject is also entitled to withdraw his/her consent at any time, however the withdrawal has no impact on the lawfulness of the data processing performed prior to the withdrawal.  

A) Right to access

The data subject is entitled to request information at any time about whether and how the Data Controller processes his/her personal data, including the purposes of the data processing, the recipients to whom the data have been disclosed or the period for which the personal data will be stored, any right of the data subject, in addition, information on automated decision-making, profiling, and in the case of transferring personal data to any third countries or any international organization, information on the related guarantees. During the exercise of the right to access, the data subject is also entitled to request copies of the personal data; in the case of requests submitted electronically, the Data Controller, in lieu of a request from the data subject that says otherwise, provides the requested information electronically (in pdf format). If the right to access of the data subject has detrimental effects on the rights and freedoms of other persons, especially the business secrets or intellectual property of others, the Data Controller is entitled to refuse to comply with the request to the necessary and proportionate extent. If the data subject requests several copies of the personal data, the Data Controller charges HUF 200 per copy/page as a reasonable amount of fee that is proportionate to the administrative costs of preparing the additional copies.

B) Right to rectification

At the request of the data subject, the Data Controller corrects or completes the personal data of the data subject. If any doubt arises from the corrected data, the Data Controller may request the data subject to certify the corrected data to the Data Controller appropriately, primarily by documents. If the Data Controller has disclosed such personal data of the data subject that are subject to this right to other persons (e.g. the recipient as data processor), the Data Controller shall immediately inform the affected persons after correcting the data, provided that such notification is possible or it does not require a disproportionate amount of effort from the Data Controller. At the request of the data subject, the Data Controller informs them about these recipients. 

C) Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)

If the data subject requests the erasure of any or all of his/her personal data, the Data Controller shall erase such data without unjustified delay if

  • the Data Controller does not need the personal data in question any more for the purpose for which the data were collected or otherwise processed;
  • the request affects data processing that was based on the consent of the data subject, but the data subject has withdrawn the consent and the data processing has no other legal basis;
  • the request affects data processing that had been based on the legitimate interests of the Data Controller or any third party but the data subject has objected to the data processing and, with the exception of objection to data processing for direct marketing purposes, there are no legitimate grounds for the data processing that would take priority;
  • the Data Controller processed the personal data unlawfully, or
  • the erasure of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of legal obligations.

If the personal data under this right have been disclosed by the Data Controller to another party (e.g. the recipient as, for example, the data processor), the Data Controller shall immediately inform such persons after the erasure, provided that such notification is possible or it does not require a disproportionate amount of efforts from the Data Controller. At the request of the data subject, the Data Controller informs them about these recipients. The Data Controller is not required to delete personal data in all the cases, especially if, for example, the data processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

D) Right to restriction of data processing

The data subject may request the restriction of the processing of his/her personal data in the following cases: 

  • the data subject contests the accuracy of the personal data – in this case, the restriction affects the period during which the data controller is able to check the accuracy of personal data;
  • the data processing is unlawful but the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
  • the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the personal data are needed for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
  • the data subject has objected to the data processing – in this case, the restriction affects the period until which it is verified whether the legitimate grounds of the Data Controller override those of the data subject.

The restriction of data processing means that the Data Controller will not process the personal data subject to the restriction except for storage, or such data are only processed to the extent to which the data subject consented, or even if without such consent, the Data Controller may process those personal data that are necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of other natural persons or legal entities, or that are necessary for the important public interests of the European Union or any European Union member state. The Data Controller informs the data subject in advance about releasing the restriction on the data processing. If personal data under this right have been disclosed to other persons (e.g. the recipient, for example, as the data processor), the Data Controller shall immediately inform such persons about the restriction of data processing, the Data Controller shall immediately inform such persons after the erasure, provided that such notification is possible or it does not require a disproportionate amount of efforts from the Data Controller. At the request of the data subject, the Data Controller informs them about these recipients.

E) Right to object

If the legal basis for the data processing related to the data subject is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller or any third party, the data subject is entitled to object to the data processing. The Data Controller is not required to accept the objection if the Data Controller can evidence that    

  • the data processing is justified by legitimate and compelling causes that take precedence over the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or

the data processing relates to the data for the establishment, enforcement or defense of Data Controller’s legal claims.

F) Right to lodge a complaint, right to an effective judicial remedy

If the data subject comes to the conclusion that the processing of his/her personal data by the Data Controller infringes the applicable data protection regulations, especially the General Data Protection Regulation, the data subject has the right to file a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority in the Member State of his/her habitual residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
