Things to help get your
website POPIA COMPLIANT
The Protection of Personal Information Act took effect on 1 July 2020. As a business and website owner you are compelled to adhere to the new regulations when it comes to processing personal information, using cookies and tracking visitors online.
Most business owners know by now that they need PRIVACY AND COOKIE POLICIES, PAIA MANUALS, DISCLAIMERS and more. However, if you don’t do direct or digital marketing besides having a website, should you have a cookie notification bar and a legal page? Unfortunatly, YES YOU DO! According to the EDPB guidelines a user merely scrolling on the website does not amount to informed consent.
