Website Privacy Compliance
Solutions to ensure POPI Act compliance
The Protection of Personal Information Act (aka the POPI Act) in South Africa, sets conditions for the lawful processing of personal information. Certain sections of the act came into effect on 1 July 2020, with other sections commencing on 30 June 2021. Read more about this.
