Statement of data management
The most important guidelines of our data management are briefly:
- It can be queried whether a specific license plate number is present in the database, but the full list of registered license plate numbers is not public.
- The email address(es) and phone number assigned to a license plate number cannot be queried, only the owner of the account can see them.
- Deleting an account will result in irreversible deletion of the email address(es).
However, the license plate number (flagged as inactive) and the messages sent to it will remain in the system for statistical and legal reasons. Also we will store the date and time of the deletion.
- The Égvemaradt.hu website does not use tracking cookies.
