This introductory webinar covers:

  • Understanding the POPIA Act
  • The importance of data privacy
  • Reasons and implications for complying with the POPIA Act

Consent and Legitimate Interest

How organisations connect with and sell to potential customers has changed in the face of data protection laws which require that a lawful basis exists to use personal information for activities such as direct marketing.

This lawful basis is rooted in consent by the data subject and a requirement by law for how such information can be used. POPIA allows for the use of personal information if such use is with the consent of the data subject and in the legitimate interest of the subject or a legitimate third party.

The session covers:

  • The processing of data
  • Cases and causes for legitimate interest
