Sustainability of Data Protection

Data controllers are obliged to take the necessary technical and administrative measures to ensure data privacy and data security within the scope of both the Turkish Personal Data Protection Law No. 6698 ("KVKK") and the European Union General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") in Europe. These measures are not specified in a limited number, but they are stipulated to determine the need of data controllers for "necessity." This necessity differs for each activity.

In addition, the life cycle of personal data in the business activities of the organization changes over time. For example, a marketing activity or employee satisfaction activity may occur, which does not currently exist; an existing process may be terminated, the customer portfolio may expand from domestic to abroad, and private companies may be included into suppliers.
