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.

The long and short of the fact is that a mere privacy policy may not be a sufficient safeguard in terms of the new sections of the Act.

As a web design agency, it is important for us that our clients are aware of the compliance requirements, the implications of non-compliance, and to suggest solutions to ensure compliance.

So we did the research and here are the outsourced solutions we advise, which should seriously be considered as part of your budgeting for your website
