5.6. Handling of data protection incidents
A data protection incident is the security breach which causes the unintended or unlawful destruction, losing, amendment, unlawful disclosure of forwarded, stored data or data processed in any other way, or which results is unlawful access to data. Controllers shall report the data protection incident to the Hungarian National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information immediately, unless the data protection incident means no potential threat to the Data Subject’s rights and freedom. Data Controllers register data protection incidents, as well as the related measures. When the incident is regarded as serious (i.e. potentially high risk for the Data Subject’s rights and freedom), Controllers shall inform the Data Subject about the data protection incident with no delay.
VI. RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT AND ENFORCEMENT
6.1. Rights of the data Subject
Information (access). Data Subject has the right to receive information on the data processing of their data. Controllers shall inform the Data Subject about the data processing when taking their data, in addition to which the present Information is available for the Data Subject any time. Data Subject has the right to request comprehensive information on the processing of their data. Data Subject may also request a copy of processed data.
Correction. Data Subject has the right to request the correction of inaccurate, or the completion of their data.
Deleting, withdrawal of consent. Data Subject has the right to withdraw their consent to data processing, or request the deleting of data any time. Controllers will reject the request only when the data processing is based on legal requirement, or the data processing is required for the preparation of legal proposals, enforcement or data protection.
Limitation: Data Subject has the right to request the limitation of data processing in the following cases:
When data processing is restricted by limitation, all personal data can be processed –except storage- only upon Data Subject’s consent, or for the preparation of legal proposals, enforcement or data protection, or the protection of rights of another natural person or legal entity, or the common interest of the European Union or a member state.
Objection. When the data processing is based on the enforcement of the rightful interest of the Data Subject, the Controllers or a third party, the Data Subject has the right to –for a reason in connection with their own position- object against the processing of their personal data. In this case, Controllers can no longer process the personal data, unless Controllers prove that data processing is reasoned by constraining legal facts which have priority over Data Subject’s interests, rights and freedom, or which are connected to legal proposals, enforcement or data protection. When data processing is executed with the purpose of direct marketing, Data Subject has the right to object against the use of their personal data for such reasons at any time. When Data Subject object against marketing purpose data processing, Controllers terminate marketing purpose data processing.
Data delivery. Data Subject is entitled to receive their personal data in a widely known and used, readable format, and is also entitled to forward these data to another Controller, provided that data processing is executed in an automatic way. Data Subject has the right to –when technically feasible- request the forwarding of their data to another controller.
6.2. Ensuring Data Subject’s rights, handling of requests
Data Controllers shall inform the Data Subject about data processing when establishing the contact. Data processing information is also found on the official form through which the Data Subject provides the data, in addition to which the present detailed Information is also available for the Data Subject – a fact that shall be pointed out when informing the Data Subject.
Data Subject can submit their request to the Controllers in relation of the execution of their right in any form (verbally or in writing). Controllers shall assess the request with no delay, make a decision, and the take the necessary measures, Controllers shall inform the Data Subject about the taken measures within one month. The notice shall include information on the taken measure, or the information requested by the Data Subject. Should Controllers reject the request (do not take the necessary measures needed for the fulfilment of the request), the notice shall include the legal base, reasons for the rejection, as well as the possibilities for legal remedy.
Controllers do not define a fee or compensation in relation of the fulfillment of the request.
When the circumstances of the submission of the request do not guarantee that the request is coming from the Data Subject, controllers have the right to request the proof of identity, or the presentation of the request in a form that allows the unquestionable definition of the rightfulness. Data Controllers shall inform every addressee about the correction, deleting or limitation towards whom any data had been disclosed to, unless it is impossible or means a disproportional effort. Controllers shall provide information about these addressees upon Data Subject’s request.
6.3. Legal remedy
Data Subject, in case of offending their rights, has the right to request the termination of unlawful data processing from the Controllers, or to evaluate the rejection of the Data Subject’s request. Controllers shall investigate such complaints of the Data Subject in all cases and inform the Data Subject about the outcome.

I would like to thank real estate agent Sándor Szabó working for the Jaszberény office of the Duna House franchise network for his conscientious and helpful work provided during the sales of my apartment. With his high-standard expertise he organised viewings of my apartment rapidly, informed clients fully, as a result of which it was sold within a short time.
