Privacy and Policy -


This policy ("Policy") governs the protection and processing of personal data by E-Turkey in connection with personal data provided by any person ("User") who has purchased, intends to purchase, or inquires about any product(s) or service(s) made by E-Turkey interface channels, including its website, and mobile site.

By accessing or using the website or any other sales channel, the User agrees to the terms and contents of this Privacy Policy. If you disagree with this Privacy Policy, you must refrain from accessing or using our website or other Sales Channels.

This privacy statement is not applicable to any third-party website(s), mobile website(s), or mobile application(s). Users are advised that the information and privacy practices of E-Turkey business partners, advertisers, sponsors, and other sites to which E-Turkey provides hyperlink(s) may differ from this privacy statement. As a result, it is recommended that you review the privacy policies of any such third parties before interacting with them.

We value your privacy and know that the usage and disclosure of personal data has significant consequences for both us and the people whose personal data we process.



We recognize your right to know how and why data is collected, used, disclosed, transferred, and kept. As a result, we have produced this Policy to educate you about our operations.

It is critical that you read this policy in conjunction with any other policies we may give on specific occasions when we collect or process your personal data, so that you understand how and why we do so.

Personal data refers to any information about a user that can be used to identify that user. It excludes personal data from which the individual's identity has been obliterated (anonymous data). You may be asked for personal data at any point throughout your interaction with E-Turkey, whether directly or indirectly via a third party.

We gather, use, and share aggregated data for any purpose, including statistical or demographic data. While aggregated data may be derived from your personal data, it is not deemed personal data under the law because it does not expose your identity directly or indirectly. For instance, we may aggregate your Usage Data in order to determine the percentage of users who visit a certain website feature. However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal data in such a way that the combined data can be used to identify you directly or indirectly, we treat the combined data as personal data to be treated in compliance with this policy.

Through our Website, we do not gather any particular categories of personal data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data, data on or about children).

E-Turkey adheres to a standard method that entails the use of log files. These files keep track of visitors to websites. This is something that all hosting firms perform, and it is a component of hosting service analytics. Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit sites, and perhaps the number of clicks are all gathered by log files. These are not associated with any personally identifying information. The information is used to analyse trends, administer the site, track users' movements around the site, and compile demographic data.



E-Turkey, like any other website, makes use of 'cookies'. These cookies are used to save information about visitors, such as their preferences and the pages on the website that they access or visit. The information is used to improve the user experience by personalizing our web pages based on the browser type and/or other information provided by visitors.



E-Turkey’s Privacy Statement is not applicable to advertising or third-party websites. As such, we recommend that you review the Privacy Policies of these third-party ad servers for additional information. It may contain their policies and procedures for opting out of particular options.



Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity.

E-Turkey does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will do our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.



We will store your personal data for as long as necessary to accomplish the reasons for which it was obtained. This includes, but is not limited to, meeting legal, regulatory, financial, and reporting requirements, performing legal work, and establishing or defending legal claims.

Your personal information will be retained in our databases in accordance with our document management, retention, and destruction policy and applicable legislation. This period may extend after the termination of your engagement with us, but only to the extent necessary for us to have adequate information to address any subsequent difficulties. For instance, we may require or be compelled to store information in order to provide you with compensation for a visa you applied but were forced to cancel. Additionally, we may need to store certain information to prevent fraudulent behaviour; to protect ourselves from liability, to pursue available remedies, or to limit any damages we may experience; or if we believe in good faith that a law, regulation, rule, or guideline demands it.

In rare instances, we may anonymize your personal data (such that it cannot be linked to you) for research or statistical reasons, in which case we may continue to use this information indefinitely without additional notice to you.



We reserve the right to alter or modify this Policy at any time, and we will notify you of any material changes through email or a notice on our Website. You should review the policy on a regular basis. Your continued use of our Website following the posting of any changes to this policy on this page constitutes your acknowledgment of the changes and your agreement to follow and be bound by the changed notice.



By using our website, you hereby consent to our Privacy Policy and agree to its Terms and Conditions.
