About POPI Compliance - Why POPIA applies to all SA businesses
POPIA applies to all South African businesses and individuals who process personal information, and it sets out strict rules for how personal information should be collected, used, stored, and shared. Under POPIA, individuals have the right to know what personal information is being collected about them, and they have the right to request that their personal information be deleted, corrected, or updated.
