What is the POPI Act?
POPI is shorthand for the Protection of Personal Information Act No. 4 of 2013. In essence, POPI applies conditions for the lawful processing of personal data of South Africans (both South African citizens and those living in South Africa). POPI does not require you to get consent from data subjects before processing their data. The only case in which consent is required is when processing special types of data and the data of children.
