Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) at Tekmart Africa

Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) at Tekmart Africa

With the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) having come into full effect today, on 1 July 2021, we would like to draw your attention to our updated Privacy Policy that outlines how we are collecting, storing and using your personal information on our systems. 

At Tekmart Africa we value and respect your privacy and would like to assure you that we are committed to keeping your personal information, as well as any personal information collected from your customers, secure and confidential.

Over and above the POPIA requirements, Tekmart Africa will be updating our End User Agrrement in the coming weeks in order to specify our contractual obligations relating to POPIA.

What is POPIA?

POPIA is South Africa’s equivalent of the EU GDPR and is intended to protect your personal information and privacy. With most organisations nowadays collecting personally identifiable data to run their businesses, it is important that the way this data is being processed is regulated by a governing body. At Tekmart Africa we fully support POPIA and the need for the conditions set out therein.

Should you have any queries or concerns related to how we are using your personal information, please review our contact information in our PAIA manual and Privacy Policy.

From the Tekmart Africa Team
