    The Hungarian National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information Has Launched an Investigation into the Data Processing Practices of the Scientology Religious Association of Hungary

    The investigation procedure of the Hungarian National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information was prompted by complaints filed by various individuals. According to these reports, data subject’s rights were violated by the data processing practices used by the Association. The purpose of the official procedure is to ascertain whether the data processing practices of the religious association are in compliance with Hungarian data protection regulations or not.

    Citizen complaints were filed at the Authority, in which the submitters shared their own experiences about the Association with the Authority, and asked for assistance in protecting their personal data.
