As from 1 July 2021, a new act called the POPI Act commenced in SA. This Act, which stands for the Protection of Personal Information Act aims to provide you with your constitutional right to privacy, while balancing that against other rights such as the access to information. As always laws have been created that are very difficult to implement and as such we are sure you will be seeing this pop up a lot in the future as businesses try to comply. The banks, insurers, cell phone companies, investment houses, and pretty much any business that has to keep a record of our information is supposed to get your consent.
We reserve the right to change this policy at any given time, of which you will be promptly updated. If you want to make sure that you are up to date with the latest changes, we advise you to frequently visit this page.
