What is the Personal Data Protection Law (KVKK)?

The KVKK is a comprehensive law that regulates the processing of personal data in Turkey. It is based on the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and applies to all individuals and organizations that process personal data in Turkey, regardless of their nationality or place of establishment.

The KVKK defines personal data as any information that identifies or can be used to identify an individual, including but not limited to name, ID number, location data, and online identifiers


Data Protection: What are the obligations under the KVKK?

The KVKK imposes several obligations on data controllers and processors, including obtaining consent from individuals for the processing of their personal data, providing individuals with information about their rights, taking appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal data, and notifying the Personal Data Protection Board (KVKK) in the event of a data breach.
