This page is intended for all users, partners and entities wishing to learn more about how we collect, analyze and use users’ browsing data on our site.
As our Portal has a majority audience of people residing in the countries of South Africa and, in some cases, Europe, we seek to follow the following data protection rules / policies in place in these places, which are:
– GDPR : REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (https://gdpr-info.eu/art-1-gdpr/)
– POPIA : Although South Africa’s first comprehensive piece of data protection legislation, the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA), was originally signed into law in November 2013, the substantive provisions of the law have not yet taken legal effect. That is likely to change since South Africa’s data protection authority, the Information Regulator, published the final draft of its POPIA regulations in December 2018.
