Protection of Personal Information

What is POPIA?

POPIA stands for the Protection of Personal Information Act, 4 of 2013. It seeks to protect the personal information of all citizens, while striking a balance between the right to privacy and the need for the free flow and access to information, in order to regulate how personal information is processed.

In terms of the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA), we are required to obtain your consent to collect, store and use your personal information. The POPI Act is a new all-inclusive piece of legislation that safeguards the integrity and sensitivity of private information. Companies are required to manage the data capturing and storage process of Personal Information carefully within the lawful framework as set out in the Act. The Act provides eight conditions under which Personal Information may legally be gathered and processed. For more information on POPIA click here.
