The information in these registers is processed only for the purposes of use of each register, in a separately informed manner.

Information is disclosed to the authorities in cases required by law, such as e.g. to investigate and prevent abuses.

As a general rule, Functos does not transfer or disclose personal data outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. However, if necessary, data can be transferred or transferred outside the European Union or the European Economic Area in ways permitted by the Personal Data Act, if the data subject has given his consent.

8. Principles of registry protection

Care is taken when processing the register and the information processed with the help of information systems is properly protected. When registry data is stored on internet servers, the physical and digital data security of their hardware is taken care of accordingly. The registrar ensures that stored data as well as server access rights and other data critical to the security of personal data are handled confidentially and only by those employees whose job description it is.

9. Right of inspection and right to demand correction of information

The registrant has the right to check his/her information stored in the register and to demand the correction of any incorrect information or the completion of incomplete information. If a person wants to check the information stored about him or demand corrections, the request must be sent in writing to the controller and prove the identity in a reliable way.

10. Other rights related to the processing of personal data

A person in the register has the right to request the removal of personal data about him from the register ("the right to be forgotten"). Those registered also have other Rights according to the EU General Data Protection Regulation such as limiting the processing of personal data in certain situations.
