Therefore, the personal data supplied can be accessed by the staff of the Office involved in registration with the Library and sending newsletters, and by their superiors.

    The Office shall not transfer personal data handled by it to third parties.

The Office shall ensure, by way of appropriate IT security measures set out in its IT Security Policy, that the personal data supplied by data subjects be protected, inter alia, from unauthorised access and unauthorised compromise. Interventions are logged by the IT system.

  9. 5. Rights of data subjects in respect of data handling

  10. Data subjects may initiate the following actions at the Office:

    • queries on the handling of their personal data,
    • correction of their personal data,
    • deletion or blocking of their personal data.


    Everybody is entitled to request information on their data handled by the Office, on the sources of their data, on the objective, legal grounds, and duration of data handling, on the name and address of the data processor and its activities related to data handling, on the circumstances and impacts of any data protection incidents occurred and the measures taken to eliminate them; furthermore, on the legal grounds and the addressee of any data transfer.

    The Office shall provide information in writing, on the shortest notice possible but within up to 25 days, with provision of information being refused only in the cases prescribed as mandatory by the Information Act. In such a case, the Office shall notify the data subject in writing pursuant to which regulatory provision the information was refused to be disclosed, also giving information on the opportunities to seek legal remedy against the relevant decision.

    If personal data is incorrect, it can also be requested that such data handled by the Office be corrected. In the event that correct personal data is available, the Office will correct it.

    Personal data must be deleted if

    • handling thereof is illegitimate,
    • the data subject requests their personal data to be deleted,
    • the data is deficient or wrong, and this situation cannot be legally rectified,
    • the purpose of data handling has ceased to exist or the deadline of data storage has expired,
    • the deletion has been ordered by a court or by the NAIH.


    The Office shall notify the party submitting such request in writing – or electronically if consented to by the data subject – about the fact of correction, blocking, marking and deletion, and / or the fulfilment of the request therefore or any hindrance thereto within 25 days of submitting the request; in the event of rejecting the request, with the factual and legal reasons of the rejection and due information on the possibilities of legal redress included.

    The data subject may initiate any query, correction, deletion or blocking by a written request submitted to the Office by post, or via e-mail at ogyk-registration@parlament.hu. Deletion also means that the right for library use is discontinued.

  11. Options of the data subject to enforce their rights in connection with data handling

  12. In the event of illegitimate data handling noticed by the data subject, they may primarily apply to the Office – as the controller of their personal data – to redress the infringement. If this proves to be ineffective, the data subject may institute an investigation by the NAIH or go to court.

    Anyone can institute an investigation by notification to the NAIH (National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, H-1125 Budapest, Szilágyi Erzsébet fasor 22/C, ugyfelszolgalat@naih.hu), with reference to the fact that their rights have been infringed in relation to the handling of their personal data or there is an imminent threat thereof. The NAIH will only investigate complaints if the data subject had already applied to the Office, prior to notification to the NAIH, in connection with exercising their rights specified in the notification.

    Those who believe that their rights have been impaired as a consequence of data handling by the Office may go to court. The court shall treat such cases with priority. Budapest-Capital Regional Court (H-1055 Budapest, Markó u. 27.) has competence in such lawsuits, but the person initiating legal proceedings may choose to take the case before the court competent according to their domicile or residence.
