Magyar Telekom constantly improves its data security system so that you always have the data entrusted to us in the most secure place. We also pay attention to the confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of the systems and services. We use technologies that facilitate this, in particular the pseudonymization and encryption of personal data and the restoration of access and availability in the event of an incident. The above mentioned technical and organizational measures are tested regularly.

The devices used to provide the service are operated in such a way that your data is only accessible to those authorized to do so (availability); their authenticity and authentication are ensured (authenticity of data controlling); their non-modification must be verifiable (data integrity); and they are protected against unauthorized access (data confidentiality).

What do we do with your location data?

In the case of its own websites, Magyar Telekom Plc., like several other website operators, controls cookies and log files.

Why do we use cookies (anonymized visitor IDs)?

Anonymous visitor IDs (cookies) are files or information fragments that are saved on your computer (or other internet-enabled devices, such as your smartphone or tablet) when you visit a website. The cookie generally contains the name of the website from which it is originated, its own “duration” (in other words how long it stays on your device) and its value, which is a random generated unique number.

Cookies are used to optimize websites and to offer you products corresponding to your interests and needs thereby making it easier to use these websites. Besides, cookies help to accelerate your future browsing sessions and to enhance your experience while using our websites. Cookies can also be used to generate anonymized, aggregated statistical data so that we have a better insight on how people use our websites so that we can improve their structure and content. This information is not suitable to identify you, as an individual.

We may use two kinds of cookies on our websites: session and permanent cookies. Session cookies are temporary, meaning they stay on your device until you leave our site. Permanent cookies remain longer, sometimes as long as you manually delete them.

Other websites use further information, so-called pixel tags, that can be shared with third parties. This directly supports our promotion activities and website development efforts. For example, the website usage information of our visitors can be shared with advertisement agencies so that we can use our online advertisements more effectively.

Log file analysis

We use log files, generated throughout the use of web services, for trend analysis, website statistics and the administration of services, in other words to analyze the “movements” of our visitors in an anonymized manner so that we can improve the quality of our services.
