The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Right to rectification

The data subjects shall have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning them. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

If a request is made to rectify (modify) personal data then the data subject needs to prove the authenticity of the data to be modified. Additionally, the data subject must verify that the person requesting rectification is authorised to do so. This is the only way for the data controller to verify the authenticity of the new data before modifying it.

Please report any changes in your personal data to the Data controller as soon as possible, facilitating the legality of data processing and the enforcement of your rights.

Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’)

The data subjects shall have the right to obtain from the Data controller the erasure of personal data concerning them without undue delay and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

  1. the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;

  4. the data subject has objected to processing pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

Right to object

If the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller (point (e) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR), the data subjects shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to their particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning them, including profiling based on the relevant provisions.

The above rights can be exercised by data subject by sending an electronic mail to this e-mail address:, or regular mail to the seat of the Data controller or in person at the seat of the Data controller. The data subject shall be informed about the measure taken in response to the request within 30 days. If we are unable to fulfil the request, we inform the data subject about the reasons of the rejection and the administrative and judicial redress rights of the data subject.

The rights of the deceased data subject may be enforced within five (5) years by an authorized person who possesses administrative provisions, or a statement towards the Data controller included in a public document or full probative private document. If multiple such statements exist at the same Data controller, then the statement made the latest will prevail. If the data subject has made no such legal statement, then a close relative – as defined in Act V of 2013 on the Civil Code – is still able to enforce certain rights of the deceased within five (5) years of death. These rights are defined in Article 16 (right to rectification) and Article 21 (right to object), as well as – if the data processing was unlawful during the life of the data subject, or the purpose of data processing has ceased with the death of the data subject – Articles 17 (right to erasure) and 18 (right to restriction of processing) of the GDPR. The close relative who exercises their right first will be entitled to enforce rights of the data subject as set forth in this Paragraph.



In order to exercise their right to judicial remedy, the data subjects may seek legal action against the Data controller if the data subject considers that the Data controller or a data processor acting on behalf of or under the instructions of the Data controller is processing the personal data in breach of the provisions of laws on the processing of personal data or of binding legal acts of the European Union. According to Article 79 (2) of the GDPR proceedings against the data controller shall be brought before the courts of the Member State where the data controller has an establishment, i.e., before the Budapest-Capital Regional Court (Hungary). The court shall deal with the case as a matter of priority. Alternatively, such proceedings may be brought before the courts of the Member State where the data subject has habitual residence. 

Without prejudice to judicial remedy, according to Article 77 (1) of the GDPR every data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of data subject’s habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement (i.e. in Hungary), alleging that the processing of personal data by the Data Controller has resulted in a violation of rights or an imminent threat thereof, or that the Data Controller is restricting the exercise of rights related to the processing of personal data or is refusing to exercise such rights.
