Protecting your data


The POPI Act is a new privacy law, effective from 1 July 2021 in South Africa and designed to protect people’s private information. It covers the sourcing, usage and
storage of personal Information relating to “natural persons”.
According to the POPI Act, personal information includes but is not limited to:

  • Information relating to the race, gender, sex, pregnancy, marital status, national, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental health, well-being, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, language and birth of the person;
  • Information relating to the education, medical, financial, criminal and employment history of the person;
  • Names, surnames, nicknames and identifying numbers, email addresses, physical addresses, telephone numbers, location, online identifiers and the like;
  • Biometric information of the person;
  • Personal opinions, views and preferences of the person;
  • Correspondence sent by the person that is implicitly or explicitly of a private or confidential nature or further correspondence that would reveal the contents of the original correspondence;
  • Views or opinions of other individuals about the person.
    The POPI Act ensures that people’s personal information is appropriately protected, used only for the purposes it was obtained, and in a manner that facilitates transparency around:

    1. What companies and other entities do with their clients’ personal information;
    2. Why and how this personal information is processed (collection, usage, sharing, disposal, storage and archiving etc.);
    3. Who the personal information is shared with (third parties locally and internationally, legal entities etc.);
