2019 KVKK & GDPR July Newsletters Information Guide
Is the Board Bound by the Demand When It Makes Its Decisions?
One of the fundamental principles in civil procedures is the principle of being bound by the scope of the demand as set forth in Article 26 of the Code of Civil Procedures (CCP) no. 6100. Other than certain exceptional cases, the Court may decide for anything beyond or other than the demand; that being said, it is evident from the decisions of the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Board that the Personal Data Protection Law (PDPL) no. 6098 is a law containing unique applications specific to it.
What Is Biometric Data?
According to the GDPR, “biometric data” means personal data resulting from specific technical processing relating to the physical, physiological or behavioural characteristics of a natural person, which allow or confirm the unique identification of that natural person, such as facial images or dactyloscopic data.
