Date of last modification: 2018. 12. 15

I. Purpose and Scope of this Notice

1.1 The purpose of this Notice is to establish the data protection and management principles applied by the Hungarian Mint Ltd. (Magyar Pénzverő Zártkörűen Működő Részvénytársaság; hereinafter: the Company or Data Controller) and the Company’s data protection and management policies which are recognised as binding by the Company as the Data Controller.

1.2 This Notice contains the principles for the management of personal data provided by Users on the Webpage, including such provided in the course of Webshop registration.

1.3 In formulating the provisions of this Notice, the Company specifically took into account Regulation 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council (‘General Data Protection Regulation’ or ‘GDPR’) and the provisions of Act CXII of 2011 on the Right of Informational Self-Determination and on Freedom of Information (‘Information Act’), Act V of 2013 on the Hungarian Civil Code (‘Civil Code’) and Act CVIII of 2001 on electronic commercial services and certain questions on services related to the information society (‘Electronic Commerce Act’).

II. Definitions

Data Controller: the party defining the purposes and means of data management, independently or in conjunction with others.

Personal data or data: any data or information, based upon which a natural person User can be identified, directly or indirectly.

Furthermore, service providers which are not working with the Data Controller but which by accessing the services Webpages collect data on Users that are suitable for identifying the Users either independently or in connection with other data are also deemed to be external service providers.

Note: this data management notice issued by the Data Controller.

III. Scope of Data Subjects

The data management pertains exclusively to natural or legal persons or the representatives of organisations without legal personality, who voluntarily register for the newsletter service using the Company’s site, or who voluntarily provide their data for the purposes of ordering, purchasing or advance ordering, or voluntarily participate in online prize games or calls for tenders organised by the Data Controller.

 IV.  Scope of Personal Data Managed

4.1 The Company’s data management activities are based on voluntary authorisation. In certain cases, however, the management, storage and transfer of some of the data provided is required by law; Users are separately notified in such cases.  Parties providing data to the Company are hereby notified that, if they do not use their own personal data, it is the responsibility of the party providing the data to obtain the authorisation of the data subject.

4.2 Based on the User’s decision, the Data Controller may manage the following data in the interests of purchasing the products and using the services available through the Webpage:

  • In relation to operation of the Webshop: For orders and purchases: name, address, e-mail address, and – depending on authorisation – telephone number. Users may register on the page using their e-mail addresses; following registration, they identify themselves with a username and password. Using the menu point “Data amendment”, Users always have the ability to change their username, password and personal data or to cancel their registration.

    If personalised coin engraving or photoengraving services are ordered, by sending the image to be used for photoengraving and the text to be engraved, the User authorises the Company to use such data. The images and texts are immediately erased following receipt of the coin by the ordering party.
  • For advance orders of commemorative coins: name, address and e-mail address, and – depending on authorisation – telephone number. Data can be amended using the registration module on the Webpage.
  • For using the newsletter service: name, address and e-mail address. Subscription to the Newsletter is voluntary; using the menu point “Data amendment” in the registration module on the Webpage, Users can subscribe to the Newsletter and can cancel their subscription using the menu point “Unsubscribe from the Newsletter” which appears at the bottom of the Newsletter.
  • For prize games or calls for tenders on social media pages or Webpages: name, e-mail address, delivery address for winners, identifier suitable for identifying the community.
  • For User identification based on the Act on the Prevention and Deterrence of Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing. In this case, the scope of Users involved is Users who purchase precious metals; the scope of the personal data used for identification is determined by the provisions of the law in force.

V. Scope of Other Data Managed by the Data Controller

5.1 In the interests of providing personalised service, the Data Controller places small data packages (so-called “cookies”) on the User’s computer. The purpose of cookies is to ensure the best possible operation of the pages, to provide personalised services and to enhance the User’s experience. The User can delete the cookies from its computer or can set its browser to prohibit the use of cookies. If the use of cookies is prohibited, the User accepts that the operation of the Webpage is not fully functional without the use of the cookies.

5.2 In the course of providing personalised services, the Data Controller manages the following personal data with the use of cookies: demographic data (based on the data referred to in Point 4.2) and information on the scope of interest and preferences (based on previous browser activities).

5.3 Data technically recorded during operation of the systems: the data on the User’s computers which are generated when the services are used and which the Data Controller’s system automatically record as a result of technical processes. The system automatically logs the data which are automatically recorded upon the User entering and exiting the site, without the separate consent or action of the User.

5.4 Users can find information on the cookies used by the Company in the Cookie Notice.

VI. Objective and Legal Basis of Data Management

6.1 Objectives of the data management performed by the Data Controller:

  • identification of the User, contact with the User;
  • identification of the User’s authorisations (services which can be used by the User);
  • facilitating personalisation of the services used by the User and functions which promote ease-of-use;
  • managing, processing and satisfying individual User requests;
  • preparing statistics and analyses;
  • directing marketing and marketing-related contact (e.g. newsletter, eDM, etc.);
  • in individual cases, organisation and execution of prize games, notification of winners and delivery of prizes;
  • development of the IT system;
  • protecting User’s rights;
  • complying with legal obligations;
  • enforcement of the justified interests of the Data Controller.

6.2 Data management occurs on the basis of the proper, voluntary, advance notification of the User, the declaration of which includes the User’s express authorisation that the personal data provided while using the Webpages and the personal data on the User may be used. In the event of data management occurring on the basis of the authorisation, the User is entitled to revoke its authorisation at any time, but this does not affect the legality of data management occurring prior to such revocation.

Above and beyond the authorisation of the User, the justified interest of the Data Controller may serve as the legal basis for data management. In the case when the justified interest of the Data Controller serves as the legal basis for data management, the Data Controller has performed and may perform in the future the analysis of interests in accordance with the provisions of GDPR, which demonstrates that the justified interest of the Data Controller in data management is stronger than the data subject’s rights and freedoms related to data management. In the event of such a request, the Data Controller will provide information to the data subject in accordance with this Notice in relation to the contents of this paragraph.

6.3 Transfer of data to the Data Processors defined in this Notice may occur without separate notification of the User. Unless otherwise provided for by law, transfer of personal data to third persons or to the authorities is only possible on the basis of an official resolution, or in the event of the prior, express authorisation of the User.

6.4 The User guarantees that it has properly obtained the authorisation of the affected natural person in relation to the management of the personal data of other natural persons which it provides or makes accessible in the course of using the Webpages’ services. The User bears full responsibility for any User contents uploaded or shared to the Services.

6.5 In relation to any User e-mail address or data provided in the course of registration (username, identifier, password, etc.), upon providing such the User assumes liability that it is the sole party using the services from the e-mail address or using the data it has provided. With due respect to this assumption of liability, all liability in relation to the access using the e-mail address and/or data provided is borne by the User which registered the e-mail address and provided the data.

VII. Principles, Mode and Duration of Data Management

7.1 The Data Controller manages the personal data in accordance with the principles of good faith, honesty and transparency, as well as in compliance with the provisions of the legal regulations in force and this Notice.

7.2 The Data Controller uses the personal data absolutely necessary for using the services on the basis of the authorisation of the User involved and solely for specific purposes.

7.3 The Data Controller only manages personal data for the purposes specified in this Notice and in the relevant legal regulations. The scope of personal data managed is proportionate to the purpose of the data management and may not exceed such. In all cases when the Data Controller wishes to use the personal data for a different purpose than the purpose of the original data collection, the User must be notified of this and its express, prior authorisation must be obtained or an opportunity must be provided for the User to prohibit such use.

7.4 The Data Controller does not check the personal data which are provided. The person providing the data is solely responsible for the personal data which are provided.

7.5 The personal data of persons younger than 16 may only be managed with the authorisation of the person exercising the rights of custody. The Data Controller is not in a position to check the entitlement of the person providing authorisation or such declarations, and thus the User or the person exercising the rights of custody guarantee that the authorisation complies with the legal regulations. In the absence of a declaration of authorisation, the Data Controller does not collect the personal data of persons younger than the age of 16, with the exception of the IP address used when accessing the service, which occurs automatically given the nature of Internet services.

7.6 The Company does not manage any special personal data, such as data on racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or secular beliefs, or union membership, or personal genetic or biometric data used for the individual identification of natural persons, or any health-related or sexual orientation data.
7.7 The Data Controller does not provide the personal data it manages to third parties, with the exception of the Data Processors specified in this Notice and – in the cases set forth in this Notice – the external service providers.
Use in a statistically compiled form is an exception to the rules set forth in this Point; such data shall not contain any other data suitable for identifying the Users involved and such use shall not constitute data management or the transfer of data. In certain cases (court, law enforcement, legal proceedings, infringement of the Data Controller’s interests due to violations of property rights or other legal rights or justified suspicion of such, threats to service continuity, etc.), the Data Controller may make the available personal data of the User involved accessible to third parties.

7.8 The Data Controller’s system may collect data on the activities of Users; these data may not be linked to the other data provided by the Users upon registration.

7.9 The Data Controller shall notify the affected User with regard to rectification, limitation or erasure of the personal data it manages, and shall furthermore notify all parties to which it has previously transferred personal data for the purposes of data management. It may forego notification if the justified interests of the data subject are not infringed upon, with due respect to the purpose of data management.

7.10 The Data Controller shall ensure the security of the personal data, take the technical and organisational measures and formulate the procedural rules which ensure that the data collected, stored and managed are protected and which prevent the accidental loss, unlawful erasure, unlawful access, unlawful use, unlawful modification or unauthorised transfer of such data. The Data Controller shall call upon all other third parties to which it transfers personal data to fulfil this obligation.

7.11 With due regard to the relevant provisions of GDPR, the Data Controller is not required to designate a data protection officer.

VIII. Duration of Data Management

8.1 Management of the personal data provided by the User shall last until the User requests erasure of the data by the Data Controller. Data management based on legal regulations lasts for the period of time prescribed by the legal regulation in question.
8.2 In the case of e-mails sent by the User, if the User otherwise does have any registration, the Data Controller shall erase the e-mail address on the 90th day following closure of the matter referenced in the request, unless – in individual cases – the justified interest of the Data Controller warrants further management of the personal data, for as long as such interest of the Data Controller exists.
8.3 In the event that illegal, deceptive personal data is used or if the User commits a criminal offense, or in the event of an attack on the system, the Data Controller is entitled to simultaneously terminate the User’s registration and erase its personal data; at the same time, if there is suspicion of a criminal offense or civil liability, it is entitled to store the personal data until the completion of any legal proceedings.
8.4  If the court or other authority orders the erasure of the personal data in a final resolution, the Data Controller shall undertake erasure. In lieu of erasure, along with notifying the User, the Data Controller shall limit the use of personal data if the User requests this, or if – based on the information available – it can be presumed that erasure would infringe upon the justified interests of the User. The Data Controller shall not erase the personal data as long as data management purpose exists which precluded erasure of the personal data.

8.5 In the case of individual orders of commemorative medals (e.g. photoengraving), designing tenders, online and prize games, data management for the data managed by the Company shall last until completion of the order, the end of the designing tender or game and announcement of the result by the Company.

8.6 The data from designing tenders is not provided to remarketing motors; the Company does not store such data in written form and does not provide the data to third parties. For tenders with a voting option, the right to vote is linked to providing an e-mail address for registration. This registration is only used by the Company to prevent hacking of the online voting. During registration for voting, the Company does not request any names, telephone numbers or other data. Upon completion of the tender the registration data is erased; the Company does not use data for remarketing purposes.

IX. Rights of the User and the Enforcement of Such

9.1 The User may request that the Data Controller inform the User as to whether it manages the personal data of the User, and if it does to ensure access to the personal data it manages (right of access). The personal data provided by the User can be viewed in the settings of the log-in system. Independently of this, the User may request information on the management of its personal data at any time in writing, by registered letter or return-receipt letter sent to the Data Controller’s address or by e-mail sent to the address adatvedelem@penzvero.hu (right of information). A request for information sent by letter shall be deemed to be authentic by the Data Controller if the User can be unambiguously identified on the basis of the request which is submitted. A request for information sent by e-mail shall only be deemed to be authentic by the Data Controller if such request is sent from the User’s registered e-mail address; however, this does not preclude the Data Controller from identifying the User in another manner prior to providing the information. The request for information may extend to the User’s data managed by the Data Controller, the source of such data, the purpose of data management, the legal basis, the duration, the name and address of any data processors, activities related to data management, and – in the case of transfer of the personal data – information on which parties received or receive the User’s data and for what purposes. The Data Controller shall provide the information following receipt of the request, but within 30 days.

9.2 The User may request that the Data Controller rectify or modify its personal data (right of rectification). Taking into consideration the purpose of data management, the User may request addition to the personal data. The personal data provided by the User can be modified in the settings of the log-in system. Following performance of a request to modify personal data, the previous (erased) data cannot be restored.

9.3 The User may request that the Data Controller erase its personal data (right to be forgotten). Erasure may be refused (i) for the purpose of exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, or (ii) if a legal regulation provides authorisation for management of the personal data, or (iii) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. The Data Controller shall inform the User regarding refusal of the request for erasure, citing the reason for such refusal. Following performance of a request to erase personal data, the previous (erased) data cannot be restored. Subscription to the newsletters sent by the Data Controller can be cancelled using the Unsubscribe link in the newsletters. In the event of cancellation, the Data Controller shall erase the User’s personal data from the newsletter database.

9.4 The User may request that the Data Controller limit management of its personal data, if the User disputes the accuracy of the personal data managed. In this case, the limitation shall last for the period of time which allows the Data Controller to review the accuracy of the personal data. The Data Controller shall mark the personal data it manages if the User disputes the correctness or accuracy of such data, but the incorrectness or inaccuracy of the disputed personal data cannot be clearly determined. The User may also request that the Data Controller limit management of its personal data, if the data management is unlawful, but the User rejects erasure of the personal data managed and instead requests limitation on the use of such. Furthermore, the User may also request that the Data Controller limit management of its personal data, if the purpose of the data management has been achieved, but the User requires management of such data by the Data Controller in the interests of establishing, exercising or defending legal claims.

9.5 The User may request that the Data Controller provide the personal data given by the User and processed using automated means by the User in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format, and/or to transmit them to another controller (right of transmission).
9.6 The User may object (right of objection) to management of the personal data (i) if management of the personal data is necessary exclusively for the performance of legal obligation pertaining to the Data Controller or for the enforcement of justified interests of the Data Controller or third parties; (ii) if the purpose of the data management is direct marketing, public opinion or scientific research; or (iii) data management occurs in the public interest. In such cases, the Company shall review the objection within 15 days of the request being submitted and notify the User of the results of such review in writing. If the objection is justified, it shall terminate the data management, block the personal data managed and notify all parties which previously received the personal data affected by the objection with regard to the objection and the measures taken on the basis of such. If the User does not agree with the results of the review, or if the Company misses the deadline, it may – within 30 days of notification or expiration of the deadline – seek remedy in the courts.

The Data Controller does everything in its power to ensure that the Data Processors manage the personal data sent to them in compliance with the legal regulations, and that the Data Processors only use such data for the purpose specified by the User or a purpose specified below in this Notice. After 25 May 2018, the Data Processors store, manage and process the personal data provided by the Data Controller which they manage or store in accordance with the provisions of GDPR.
