Data Protection

The University of Pécs pays particular attention to the fair and lawful processing of personal data and personal data concerning health of its more than ten thousand students and thousands of staff members and applies a high level of information security measures to protect these data.

The new European data protection regulation, the so-called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has been directly applicable in Hungary since 25th May 2018. The new regulation prescribes strict rules on every data controller, including the University of Pécs. In order to comply with the GDRP, the Senate of the University of Pécs adopted a fundamentally revised, up-to-date Data Protection Regulation in compliance with the rules laid down in the GDPR on 23rd May 2018, setting up the general framework for lawful data processing in the new legal environment.

The regulation sets out the detailed rules on data processing at the University, the rights of the data subjects (students, emlpoyees, health service recipients) during the data processing, and the conditions for data transfer within its organization or to third parties.

To guarantee the proper implementation of data protection regulations the University appoints an internal data protection officer, who supports the actions of the University’s organization and the enforcement of the rights of the data subjects with education, counsel and resolutions.
