Disclaimer Text


As YTU Schools, we strive to protect your personal data. For this reason, we wanted to explain in detail how we use your personal data. As we are responsible for the administrative and technical security of the data, it is of great importance for us to demonstrate that we have clearly understood our obligations. 

Article 10 of the Personal Data Protection Law No. 6698 (“KVKK”), which entered into force on April 7, 2016, requires people whose personal data is processed (used) to be informed by the data controller who uses such data. As the data controller, YTU Schools must prove that these people were informed. 

Your full name, student’s full name, student’s date of birth (only month and year), your mobile phone number as contact data, and your e-mail address, as well as the school, academic year, class applied for, your appointment date, notes taken regarding the student, and the e-mail contents (if you made your application via e-mail) are the personal data we use. 

You hereby accept that the necessary information is provided to the data subject regarding the personal data of the third parties shared. We strongly advise you not to share any information that is not requested in the form with us by taking into considering that it may be requested in the future. 

As YTU Schools, we can collect your personal data via the information you have provided and the application form you have completed on our website, as well as via phone, e-mail, or our interviews. Your personal data is collected via digital or non-digital means.

We need such information to prepare necessary contracts, execute them, and fulfill our legitimate interests without prejudice to your fundamental rights and freedoms. Such legitimate interests include contacting you regarding enrollment procedures, identifying you and the student, determining the grade of the student, evaluating whether the student is compliant with the school culture, planning enrollment procedures, and planning and tracking parent interviews. Your data is never used outside the procedures we have specified here. 

We may have to transfer your personal data to official bodies, our business partners, auditors, attorneys, and financial advisors. However, we transfer such data only in accordance with specific purposes and with your knowledge. Your personal data can be transferred to attorneys, auditors and tax advisors for the execution of our business processes as per the legislation and the follow-up and execution of legal affairs; other official bodies such as regulatory and supervisory bodies, courts and enforcement offices for informing authorized bodies and organizations and your proxies and representatives authorized by you for fulfilling your requests. 

To give you control over your personal data, the KVKK grants you numerous rights that include but are not limited to learning whether your personal data is processed or not; demanding information regarding whether your personal data has been processed; learning the purpose of the processing of your personal data and whether this personal data is used in compliance with the purpose; knowing the third parties to whom your personal data is transferred in-country or abroad; requesting the rectification of the incomplete or inaccurate data (if any) and requesting the erasure or destruction of your personal data. 

You can find all these rights and their details in Article 11 of the KVKK. In the event you wish to execute any of your rights, you can communicate your request in writing (through a warning letter or registered letter) or via a registered e-mail address, secure electronic signature, mobile signature, or using your e-mail address registered in our system, which you have provided to us in advance.
