TEKCE is dedicated to safeguarding personal data. Tekce.com is a real estate website serving globally. It is represented by different entities in each country. As a reputable company, we operate in full compliance with the General Data Protection (GDPR) rules of these respective countries.
Our policy covers all visitors to our website and our team. All activities and operations by Tekçe group companies are governed by this policy. TEKCE group companies include Tekce Legal Consultancy SA, Tekce Overseas Gayrimenkul AŞ, Tekce Overseas SA, Tekce Exclusive Gayrimenkul AŞ, and Tufan & Tekce Real Estate LLC in different countries.
Whenever you contact TEKCE (call, web form, WhatsApp message, online chat, etc.), we collect your name, surname, phone, email, and property preferences. We collect and store this data in our CRM to provide you with a more personalized service. You can control your data on tekce.com/mytekce, a mirror website of what we know about you. You can exercise your right to be forgotten here.
Within this policy, several terms are used to define our data practices. "Explicit Consent" refers to the voluntary, informed agreement for data processing. "Anonymization" is the process of making personal data untraceable to an individual. "Personal Data" includes identifiable information such as name, email, and phone number. "Processing" encompasses any operation performed on this data. The "Data Controller" is the entity determining the purpose and means of processing, while the "Data Processor" is the entity processing data on the Data Controller's behalf. "GDPR" stands for the respective legislation of each country's Law on the Protection of Personal Data.
TEKCE is committed to processing data transparently, legally, and solely for its intended purpose. We retain data only as long as necessary, ensuring the privacy of our users.
We classify data into two categories: "Personal Data," which includes details like name, email, and phone number, and "Private Personal Data," which covers sensitive data such as race, beliefs, and health. It's important to note that TEKCE doesn't collect this sensitive data without explicit consent. All individuals have the right to access, modify, or delete their data. Requests can be directed to us via phone, email, or in person at our registered address.
TEKCE, as the Data Controller, determines the purpose and means of processing personal data. The Data Processor, on the other hand, operates under TEKCE's authorization, ensuring that data is handled appropriately and securely.
In all our operations, TEKCE strictly adheres to the GDPR Law. This ensures transparency in our data processing, the establishment of proper security measures, and our registration in the Data Controllers Registry.
Domestically, we ensure that data isn't shared without user consent, except when faced with legal obligations. Internationally, we may transfer data, but only under conditions that guarantee data protection. We never share personal data with third parties. Our data retention practices are in line with legal requirements, typically ranging from 2-5 years, depending on the specific regulation.
TEKCE has implemented robust technical and organizational measures to ensure the security of personal data. However, we acknowledge that no online method is entirely secure.
This policy may undergo periodic updates. Any changes will be effective from the last update date. For those residing outside the EEA or Switzerland, we may transfer data internationally. However, we always ensure that adequate data protection measures are in place.
