In South Africa, consumers have a deep mistrust and lack the confidence that organisations use the information they collect lawfully and for an agreed upon purpose. The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) of 2013 is South Africa’s new data protection law. It joins a raft of similar laws around the world.
We believe that privacy should be focused on private consumer interactions, data encryption, reducing data permanence, data safety, interoperability of devices and applications, and secure data storage. We take full responsibility in terms of the Protection of Personal Information Act of 2013 (POPIA) to take all reasonable measures to ensure data protection and privacy and prevent data breach or loss.
POPIA is about security, is addition to being about respecting the rights of the data subject.
The Company shall promote a culture of data privacy and digital transformation as a vital strategy in the complexity of our daily operations. The Company acknowledges that there is no single tool that can accomplish end-to-end POPIA compliance, but that it is only possible through the ethical conduct of employees and managers, and the security and maintenance of our data protection systems.
