The Law on the Protection of Personal Data ("Data
Protection Law") is fully effective as of today. This
means that the articles relating to (i) transfer of personal data,
(ii) rights of the data subject, (iii) data controllers'
registry, (iv) administrative fines, and (v) criminal penalties are
now in force. Please see below our articles for detailed
information regarding the Data Protection Law:
Yet another development is that the Turkish Parliament has elected the first five members of the
Data Protection Board which is to act as the decision-making body
of the national supervisory data protection authority. The rest of
the members of the Data Protection Board shall be appointed by the
Council of Ministers (2 members) and the President (2 members).

In light of the much anticipated ICO draft GDPR (the General Data Protection Regulation) Consent Guidance being published yesterday, 2 March 2017, we will be running a mini-series on the guidelines under consultation and the impact the GDPR will have on the much vexed position of consent and the impact on your business.
The first of our four discussions on the ICO guidelines for Consent will focus on the meaning of consent under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and how this change enhances the previous law on consent to data processing.
The fourth and final part of our mini-series on the draft ICO guidance on Consent, published on 2 March 2017, focuses on the practical impact the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will have on how your organisation records and manages consent.
A fundamental aspect of all fair and lawful processing of personal data under the current data protection rules is the requirement for the party who is the data controller to meet one or more conditions ("the conditions for processing").
