Rights of Users
Everybody is entitled to request information on his/her personal data processed by iSLCollective or by a data processor, on the sources of the data, on the purpose, legal basis and duration of processing, on the name and address of the data processors and on iSLCollective’s activities related to data processing. Users are also entitled to request information on the circumstances and effects of any data protection incident which might have occurred and the measures taken in order to provide remedy.
Requests shall be submitted to info [at] islcollective [dot] com.
iSLCollective provides the information in writing and within the shortest possible period of time following the submission of the request, however, not later than within 25 days; the provision of information may be denied only in cases defined by the relevant Act. Should the request for information be denied, iSLCollective notifies the User in writing by referring to the provision of the Act serving as a ground for the refusal, and also informs the data subject of the means available for legal redress against the decision.
Where any personal data processed by iSLCollective are deemed to be inaccurate, the User may request that they be corrected.
Personal data shall be erased if
The erasure may be initiated by the data subject with a written request filed with iSLCollective.
iSLCollective blocks the personal data if the User requests this at in a qualified document or, based on the information available to iSLCollective, erasure of the data requested by the User would presumably violate the legitimate interests of the USer. Blocked personal data may be processed only as long as the purpose which prevented erasure of the personal data remains valid.
If the accuracy of an item of personal data is contested by the User and its inaccuracy or incorrectness cannot be ascertained beyond doubt, iSLCollective tags the personal data in question.
The User filing the request must be notified by iSLCollective in writing within 25 days from filing the request of any correction, blocking, tagging or erasure, i.e. that the request has been granted or that there is an obstacle to do so. In the latter case iSLCollective must also provide the factual and legal grounds for the refusal and inform the data subject of the possibilities for seeking legal redress.
The User is entitled to object to the processing of his/her personal data if
iSLCollective examines the objection lodged within 15 days of its receipt and grants the request expressed in the objection if it can establish beyond doubt that the objection is well-founded; it also notifies the decision in writing to the person who filed the objection. If the objection is rejected, iSLCollective must state the grounds for its decision in a form conforming to the objection.
In case of rejection of the objection, if the data subject disagrees with the decision made in the case, or if iSLCollective fails to observe the deadline, the User may turn to court.
Everyone who considers that their rights were infringed in the course of the data processing by iSLCollective may turn to court or to the Data Security Authority (www.naih.hu). The court hears such cases in priority proceedings. The Budapest-Capital Regional Court (Fővárosi Törvényszék) is competent to hear the case, however, if so requested by the data subject, legal proceedings may also be started before a Hungarian court competent according to the permanent or temporary residence of the data subject.
