However, the Law No. 6698 on the Protection of Personal Data (KVKK)is applicable for all data controllers who engage in personal data processing as a result of using cookies.
In terms of the method for obtaining open consent, the requirements of the KVKK must be followed. Clarification must be provided prior to open consent, the open consent must be given actively and of the user’s free will, and open consent must not be made a prerequisite for the provision of services.
Nonetheless it must be pointed out that; as GDPR may also be applicable in the foregoing situations, in case where services are also being provided to EU countries, the guidelines set forth in both the KVKK and the GDPR must be taken into consideration and followed accordingly.
