QC operates a newsletter in order to ensure that those interested stay continuously informed about its latest news. This requires registration on our website providing personal data (full name, email address), which are handled as per the preliminary written consent of the newsletter’s recipient. Any personal data will be processed to the extent necessary for the performance of sending our newsletters based on subscription, and for the time necessary to achieve this purpose. The newsletters are distributed through the “Mailchimp” international newsletter automation platform, from abroad, therefore in addition to registration, you are required to specifically consent to the forwarding of your personal data to a cross-border third party data processing platform. The Mailchimp platform is operated by The Rocket Science Group, LLC (675 Ponce de Leon Avenue, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA). Data processing conforming to European Union regulations is ensured by the foreign operator on the basis of the provisions of the “EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework” data exchange agreement. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter any time by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter’s footer. This automatically deletes your data stored in the system, but if you write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your specific request to have your data deleted, QC deletes your data immediately, but not later than within 15 days.
Beyond data processing based on the subject’s consent, QC processes and forwards personal data only in cases when it is obliged by law to do so. QC only forwards the personal data provided at its disposal to third parties – with the exception of data managers/data processors contractually entitled by QC to do so – with the preliminary and explicit written consent of the subject.
QC ensures the lawful processing of personal data by employing appropriate technical devices, organisational measures and internal regulations. QC exercises special caution in the course of processing and protecting personal data. QC only processes accurate and if necessary, up-to-date data, and only for the duration required to fulfil the purpose of data processing. In case the purpose of data processing has ceased, QC deletes the personal data of the subject immediately, but not later than 15 days.
The rights of the data subjects in connection with the above processing of personal data include the following:
QC immediately, but not later than within 15 days of receipt of the data subject’s request, takes the necessary steps to comply with such request and process the personal data accordingly.
If the subject believes that the processing of their data is exercised by the QC in an unauthorised manner, they can object to the processing of their data. This objection is immediately, but not later than within 15 days of receipt of the request, inspected by QC, and the objecting subject is informed of the inspection’s result in writing – meanwhile the procession of the subject’s data is suspended. If QC fails to meet the deadline, or fails to comply with the request, the subject is entitled to turn to the Budapest Capital Regional Court or to the competent Regional Court of their permanent or temporary place of residence for legal remedy.
In case of personal data breach, or in case of immediate danger of breach, the subject or any third party may request investigation by submitting a report to the Hungarian National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (NAIH).
QC accepts questions, remarks, suggestions regarding the data it processes at the email address email@example.com and the postal address 1062 Budapest, Andrássy út 110.
