Protection of Personal Data

The increasing usage of information technologies and developments in this field make personal data exchange between different actors in the community inevitable. Exchange of private data, however, may result in dangerous situations in which those information is misused contrary to interests of owner of data. Turkish Law on the Protection of Personal Data no. 6698 entered into force in 2016 in order to bring clear solutions to the related issues.

Our staff advises clients, within the framework of Law no. 6698, to strengthen their standing against the risks of personal data protection law related issues. In order to avoid possible violations of Turkish Law on the Protection of Personal Data, we determine obligations of clients within the scope of the law and provide legal consultancy cooperating with IT departments in the process of creating data recording systems and ensuring that the data recording systems currently in use are compatible with the obligations under Turkish Law on the Protection of Personal Data. We also prepare and review agreements required by Turkish Law on the Protection of Personal Data to be concluded with customers or business partners.

Apart from abovementioned services, we organize in-house awareness trainings for the relevant departments in order to ensure full compliance with the obligations under the Turkish Law on the Protection of Personal Data.
