WHAT IS POPI?
- The PoPI Act is defined and inspired by the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, where it states that:
“…each individual has the right to privacy…” This right includes: “…the protection against unlawful collection, retention, dissemination and use of personal information…”.
WHY IS The PoPI Act IMPORTANT?
- The PoPI Act insures that organisations that intend to use citizens’ personal information do so through a process that is fair, responsible, and secure.
- You can receive a fine up to R10million and reputational damage if you are found not compliant.
