2020 KVKK & GDPR May Newsletters Information Guide
Application To The Data Controller And Complaint To The Board
The rights of the data subject are counted in the 11th article of the Law No. 6698. These rights are those that are strictly bound to the person whose personal data regarding the implementation of this Law will be used against the data controller of the data subject. In other words, the relevant rights can only be used by the data subject on his behalf; it cannot be used on behalf of someone else (if there is no representation relationship between the data controller and the data subject).
Application To The Data Controller
The rights of the data subject are counted in the 11th article of the Law No. 6698. These rights are those that are strictly bound to the person whose personal data regarding the implementation of this Law will be used against the data controller of the data subject. In other words, the relevant rights can only be used by the data subject on his behalf; it cannot be used on behalf of someone else (if there is no representation relationship between the data controller and the data subject). The data controller should respond to these requests submitted to him as soon as possible or within 30 days as stated in the Law; otherwise the right of the person to complain to the Board will arise. The point to be considered in terms of the data subject is that the application ways to the data controller should all be used, and the complaint should not be made directly to the Board.
Complaint To The Board
If the data subject finds the reply of the data controller inadequate within the aforementioned timeframe, the application is not answered by the data controller or the application is rejected; the data subject has the right to make a complaint to the Board within 30 days. This right is also strictly bound to the data subject such as the application to the data controller and can only be used by the data subject.
Technical Measure: Application Security
According to the Article 12 and Paragraph 1 of KVKK, data controllers must take all necessary technical and administrative measures in order to prevent unlawful processing of personal data, prevent unlawful access to personal data and to protect personal data in accordance with the law. These measures are elaborated in the Personal Data Security Guideline published by the Authority and specified in the notification phase to VERBIS.
2020 KVKK & GDPR May Newsletters Legislation Analysis
ARTICLE 9/4 Of By-Law On Data Controllers’ Registry
In the Article 4 of the Law No. 6698, the principle of keeping personal data as long as required by the legislation or necessary for the purpose for which they are processed is set out. In accordance with this principle, in case the reasons requiring the processing of personal data disappear, the necessity of being destructed ex officio or at the request of the data subject is regulated in the article 7 of the Law. As can be seen, there are two criteria for determining the retention periods of personal data: one of them is the time prescribed in the legislation; and if a period is not prescribed in the legislation, it is the period of time required for the purpose for which they are processed. In this regard, the Authority does not make a direct orientation to the data controllers or assign this period for how long they can store personal data. If no period is prescribed in the relevant law, then the data controllers should specify this period themselves and when determining the retention period, the criteria specified in the article 9 of the By-Law on the Data Controllers' Registry should be taken into consideration.
