  1. Annihilation Methods of Personal Data in Crafist®

As Crafist®, we process personal data in accordance with legal obligations regarding the protection of personal data. If the processing requirements of the data we process are eliminated, personal data are officially deleted, anonymized or destroyed by our data officer at the request of the person concerned.

We regularly conduct research and scans of personal data that need to be deleted, anonymized or destroyed every 6 months. We keep the log records of automatic or manual deletion, anonymization or annihilation for 3 years.

As Crafist®, we perform the annihilation methods of personal data as explained below.

  • Deletion or Destruction of Personal Data in the Physical Environment

Personal data can sometimes be processed in non-automatic ways. When deleting or destroying personal data processed by non-automatic means, we physically destroy personal data so that they will not be used again later.

When it is necessary to destroy personal data processed in our digital environments, our technical experts make the related physical hardware and devices completely unusable.

We completely destroy the personal data on paper with paper shredders, whose activities are terminated, at the request of the data owners or the storage period stipulated by the law has expired.

  • Deletion or Destruction of Personal Data from Application Software and Databases

As Crafist®, we collect and process data in accordance with our personal data protection policy by using different application software on various digital platforms in order to conduct our activities.

We perform inventory studies in databases containing personal data we keep in application software. We prepare an inventory on databases with personal data, at tables related to these databases and in which areas these tables are kept. In the inventory we have prepared, we also indicate tables and fields that do not contain direct personal data, but are likely to match any person when matching.

There may be times when data owners request data deletion. At such times, we delete all personal data from the relevant tables, except for the personal data in the groups whose retention periods are not expired, which are determined in accordance with legal provisions and specified in our company's policy.

However, during the process of deleting personal data, there may be situations where we can not access other data or use the data within the system. In such cases, provided that certain conditions are met, we archive the data by making it unrelated to the person and we consider that the archived data have been deleted. These conditions;

  • Being unavailable to any other organization or person.
  • Taking whatever managerial and technical precautions to ensure that only authorized persons can access personal data.

We perform the destruction of equipment on digital platforms by demagnetizing, physically destroying and overwriting.

  • Demagnetization: We expose the data on magnetically stored media to high magnetic field, ensuring that it becomes unreadable. If we are not successful in this way, we will complete the process by physical destruction of the media.
  • Physical Destruction: We physically destroy personal data recorded by non-automatic ways so that they cannot be used later. This is the only way we can destroy data in the form of paper or hard copy.
  • Overwriting: We make it impossible to use and read old data with special software over magnetic or rewritable optical media.

In some cases, as Crafist®, we agree with a technical expert who we have made the necessary confidentiality and supplier agreements to ensure that personal data is deleted. Personal data that is securely deleted by technical experts becomes unusable again.

  • Anonymizing Personal Data

While making personal data anonymous, we take advantages of three methods such as masking, subtraction of variance and data modification.

  • Masking

We only change the values without changing the format of personal data and we ensure this change is never detected and recycled.

  • Subtraction of Variance

We remove one or more columns with high descriptors in the database tables in which we store personal data and private personal data.

        7.3.3 Data Modification

We randomly change the places of the lines of personal data or special qualified personal data in columns of the same type that we keep in database tables.
