Turkey was one of the first countries to start the trend of legislating data protection. Turkey published “Law on the Protection of Personal Data No. 6698 (LPPD) covering personal data protection on April 07, 2016.” The LPPD is based on the European Union Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and has several similarities with the GDPR. It aims to give data subjects’ control over their personal data and outlines obligations that organizations and individuals dealing with personal data must comply with. The LPPD has also provided comprehensive guidelines for the transfer of personal data to the third parties.
