Within the scope of this Privacy and Security Policy, information that personally identifies you and/or is used to communicate with you, is defined as personal data as defined in Personal Data Protection Law No. 6698 ("PDPL").
In this context, when you fill out the Aşçıoğlu website information request form, your first and last name, e-mail address, phone number, personal data related to your interests, your frequency of use of our website, location data (if you give your mobile device permission to use your location,) and your IP address are processed.
Your personal data is collected and processed by Aşçıoğlu only with your express consent, apart from other cases as stated in the PDPL. Your personal data can be processed during the following operations:
Your personal data obtained within the scope of our Website may be processed by Aşçıoğlu in accordance with the basic principles stipulated by the PDP Law and within the personal data processing conditions and purposes specified in Articles 5 and 6 of the Law, for the following purposes:
Cookies and Other Technologies Used by Aşçıoğlu
By the most clear definition, cookies are small-sized files of a series of characters that are sent to your computer or mobile device to recognize and remember you the next time you visit that website and contain various information about your visit. Most web browsers have a cookie blocking mode for visiting websites. If you activate the cookie blocking mode in your web browser, you will not be able to benefit from some of the features we have developed for you on our website and mobile application.
The Aşçıoğlu Website automatically collects and stores some information such as Internet Protocol Addresses (IP), browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), reference and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and click data. Aşçıoğlu also uses various technologies to collect information about how many times our website has been viewed.
We would like to point out that the information collected by cookies and other technologies is considered non-personal and is only used to provide a better service to our visitors and improve our services.
Some of our e-mail messages contain a clickable URL, linked to content on the Aşçıoğlu website. When you click on one of these URLs, you pass through a separate web server before reaching the destination page on our website. This link click data is tracked to determine interest in certain subjects and to measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you do not wish to be tracked this way, do not click on links in the e-mail messages.
We may combine, update or expand the personal data we obtain about you via our website with data from external sources or third parties. Aşçıoğlu may also share aggregated customer statistics not containing any personal data with other third parties such as business partners, press, etc.
Aşçıoğlu also requests express consent from its customers in order to directly or indirectly send commercial electronic messages via all kinds of electronic media regarding general and special campaigns, advantages, product and service promotions, advertising, market research surveys and other customer satisfaction applications.
Our Website may use “pixel tags" along with cookies to measure activity and/or traffic on our Website. A pixel tag is a type of web page graphic and is usually invisible due to its 1x1 pixel size. These tags track the number of users who visit our Website and track their navigation through our Website. For example, we may use this tag when we want to statistically count which pages of our Website our users have visited.
Pixel tag technology is not used to retrieve any personal data.
Sometimes we put pixel tags in HTML messages we send (or in messages sent on our behalf) to determine which e-mail messages are opened and whether the email results in an action taken. You may stop some pixel tags from working by canceling the corresponding cookie.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number, usually assigned automatically by your Internet Service Provider to your device when you connect to the Internet. As with other websites, Aşçıoğlu collects IP addresses to collectively analyze the number of visitors and website usage information. Your IP address is not related to any personal data you provide. However, we reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals that are threatening our Website or our visitors.
"Click flow" or "click flow data" reflects the web pages that a user visits, and more importantly, shows the status or traffic pattern that allows the user to move from one web page to another. Aşçıoğlu only monitors this information for our own Website; we do not monitor click flow activities anywhere other than on Aşçıoğlu web pages. Click flow data does not contain or disclose any personal data about the user, and we do not compare it with any other personal data you provide.
Accessing and Updating Information
Aşçıoğlu never requests credit card information or any other personal data via e-mail. This method of stealing and misusing your personal data is called "Phishing." Please do not respond to anything that seems like a message from Aşçıoğlu that requests your personal data.

By using the "Optout” mechanism, you will not receive any communications from us unless you click on the checkbox or check the box that represents your express consent in the express consent texts we have provided to you for the distribution of e-mails, voice calls, or subscriptions to other services.
