Customer Personal Info Protection Policy

Customer Personal Data Protection Policy (“Policy”) includes information about how we protect customers’ personal data (any information that identifies or serves to identify a person), the rules we comply with when processing personal data, and our processing processes of personal data.

Principles of Personal Data Processing

While processing your personal data, we ensure compliance with the data processing principles stated below.

  • Being in compliance with the law and good faith principle.
  • Being accurate and up-to-date when necessary.
  • Processing for specific, explicit, and legitimate purposes.
  • Being connected, limited, and restrained with processing purposes.
  • Storing for the period required by the relevant legislation or for the purpose for which they are processed. 

Legal Grounds for Personal Data Processing

We process your personal data based on the legal grounds specified in Articles 5 and 6 of Personal Data Protection Law.

We explicitly state these legal grounds in the privacy statements we provide to the data subjects.

The legal grounds for processing our customers’ personal data are as follows:

  1. Personal data processing is necessary for the establishment or performance of a contract signed between you and Zarastro Art.
  2. Processing personal data for the establishment, execution, or protection of a right.
  3. Processing personal data to fulfil our legal obligations.
  4. Personal data processing is mandatory for our legitimate interests.
  5. Explicit consent of the data subject to process her/his personal data.

While making this assessment, we perform a balance test by comparing the fundamental rights and freedoms of the person with the legitimate interest that will arise based on the criteria specified in Board’s Decision dated 25/03/2019 and numbered 2019/78.

If there is at least one of the legal grounds specified in the Law so that personal data can be processed, we do not ask for explicit consent of the data subject. We only ask explicit consent in the absence of legal grounds stated in the Law.


Factors Considered When Asking for Explicit Consent

Explicit consent is described in the Law as “consent on a particular subject, based on the information and disclosed with free will”. When asking the explicit consent of a data subject, we consider the following three factors:

  1. Being related to a particular subject→ We ask for the explicit consent of the data subject for specific data processing activity/activities and ensure that the consent texts are understandable.
  2. Information-based → We present consent texts and privacy statements together/on the same channel; we support the data subject to understand the results of the data processing activity.
  3. Disclosure with free will → While asking for their consent, we avoid misleading statements that may defect their will.

  1. To learn whether Zarastro Art processes your personal data,
