Information on data protection
When you visit the internet website of the HCSO, you also provide us your personal data.
We can access your personal data (i.e. the data related to you) in two ways: on the one hand during maintaining the internet connection, when technical data on the computer, the browsing software, the internet address you use and the pages you visit are automatically generated in our computer system, on the other hand you can also supply your name, contact details or other data, if you wish to contact us personally when using the website.
We developed our website so that it should meet the requirements on the standardised content and form of websites of central government bodies. During this we made efforts to manage your personal data only in as much as necessary to use the services provided by the website, and according to your instructions, at the same time fully observing the current provisions of the law.
When you visit our website it is the HCSO that is responsible for managing your data. A part of the information of public interest provided by us is directly available from the Government Portal, and starting from our website you can use several other services on the Government Portal. In these cases you leave our website, go to the Government Portal, and from that time on your data are managed there. (Your browsing software displays on the screen where you actually are.)
To run the website and to manage at the same time the data of visitors we do not use services provided by outside organisations (data processors).
Your data – which we access in connection with visits to our website – are not passed on by the HCSO, except for the automatically generated technical data on your visits, used for the regular measurement of statistics on visits to the website, which are supplied to Medián, a public opinion research institute, to the extent necessary for the Web audit service performed with “web bug” technique.
If you do us the honour of filling in our user satisfaction form, your opinion will be registered as statistical data, which cannot be related to you, on a central computer not making part of the Government Portal.
If you wish to ask questions or you give us your opinion you can use the form on our contact page. In these cases you should provide us your electronic mail (e-mail) address and give us your questions or opinion. We transmit these data of yours to the specialists within the HCSO, and send their response to you.
If you wish to take part in the exchange of views on the activity of the HCSO, you can do so on the Forum of the Government Portal, according to the rules thereof, in the particular groups of themes; in these cases your data will be managed by the Government Portal.
This piece of writing contains data protection information related to the standardisation of the content and form of our website. The management of the personal data of our visitors is only a part of our data management activity. In its other activities, too, the HCSO is in contact with citizens and clients, during which it manages the personal data of those affected – as included in our general information on data protection.
