Data privacy – 2013

Your privacy is important to us and our partners. Collecting and processing of personal data necessary for identification during the usage of our website complies with the data protection standards in force in Hungary (Law LXIII. 1992). We do not share any of your data with third parties, either name, or transaction data (including your bank and credit card information) unless it is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract (e.g.: billing, shipping, courier service). Please, note that we do not see and cannot record your credit card data during the payment transaction process. When you click the “start transaction” button, you are redirected to the K&H Bank, Budapest, server where you can pay with your bank card through an encrypted transaction that is currently considered the safest.

K&H Bank accepts VISA Classic, VISA Electron and Eurocard/MasterCard type bank cards. Bank cards authorized only for electronic transactions are only accepted if the usage of the card is authorized for this purpose by the issuing bank for that card. Please inquire at your bank whether your card can be used for internet shopping. K&H Bank will issue an authorization number for the transaction. You should write the number down, or print out the whole page. In case of an unsuccessful transaction, K&H Bank will send an error message and the cause of the error.

After the transaction has been completed, the bank automatically redirects you back to our website. We never use and share your name, address, or financial data for commercial advertising purposes. The Symmetrology Foundation records only your data given on the application form, the amount and purpose of your payment, and visits of the festival website (IP address, operation system, type of the browser of the visitor, and the list of the visited pages). The latter data are used only for statistical purposes. You accept that your contact details can be published in the Festival publications.

Safety of your payment by your bank card during the procedure is secured by the K&H Bank with 128 bit SSL encryption. The data given by you reach the bank in an encrypted form and no unauthorised person can interpret them.
