WHAT IS POPI?

South Africa has recently passed the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI), which aims to protect the rights of individuals who, during the normal course of business, give up their personal information for use by entities such as businesses. Ordinarily, an individual’s right to privacy is upheld in our Constitution, but individuals (called data subjects) need to ‘give up’ this right to privacy so that businesses may make use of their personal information. 

POPI sets out conditions for the usage and handling of personal information to which businesses must comply.
