Data Protection Law

The protection of the private data of individuals is one of the major issues facing almost all businesses today. From various kinds of companies that employ personnel to retail companies to hospitals, all sorts of establishments collect, store and process personal data. The legal dimension of these procedures is governed by certain principles, such as express consent and the obligation to inform. This has been reflected in international and domestic legislation such as Turkish Law No. 6698 on the Protection of Personal Data, European Directive 95/46/EC (the “Data Protection Directive”) and the 1981 Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data of the Council of Europe.
