Data processing related to contractual partners and tenderers participating in a procurement process (communication, implementation of relevant contract, data processing related to persons involved in performance as well as students supplied by student job centers).

Processing data of contractual partners’ contact persons and persons involved in the performance of the contract for the purpose of fulfilling the contract (implementation on a daily level) and exercising rights related to the contract. Name and contact details (e-mail, telephone number, mobile number, fax number) of contact persons of contractual partners and of persons involved in the performance, and communication containing any personal data related to the contract (e.g. communication received from the contact person or any natural person acting on behalf of the partner). Data retention period: 5 years from the termination of the contractual relationship. 


Unless Act V of 2013 on the Civil Code (the ‘Civil Code’) provides otherwise, claims are subject to a period of limitation of 5 years. If Egis indicates the limitation period during which a claim is enforceable as the duration of data processing, an act that interrupts the limitation will extend the duration of processing until the new time limit of the limitation (Civil Code, Section 6:25(2)). If limitation is suspended, the claim shall remain enforceable within one year from the time when the reason for suspension is eliminated or, in respect of a period of limitation of one year or less, within three months even if the period of limitation has already lapsed or there is less than the above periods of time remaining therein (Civil Code, Section 6:24(2)).

In accordance with Act C of 2000 on Accounting (the ‘Accounting Act’), Egis is obliged to retain ‘accounting records’, for example those which comprise documents supporting accounting or which feature in documents related to concluding a contract between Egis and one of its contractual parters (e.g. a contract or order), in documents supporting accounting or in an issued invoice. The 8-year data retention period stipulated in the Accounting Act is to be calculated from the date when an accounting entry connected with the data arises in a given year or when the report/accounting is based on the given data in any way. In practice, when the data appear in a contract under which several orders are made (e.g. advice is provided on a number of occasions under a contract), the 8 years are to be calculated separately from the date of each performance because separate invoices are issued for each performance which are the basis of the given transactions. If, for example, the data appear in a contract which stipulates the sale of a thing (the thing is delivered and thus the contract is discharged by performance), the transaction will be accounted in the given year based on the contract and the invoice, and the aforementioned 8-year period starts from that date.
