You can request a copy of our agency's internal POPIA compliance manual. All our staff are bound by confidentiality provisions in their letters of appointment, and we will only pass on your personal information to third parties who need it for the purposes of their work, related to what we do for you. (Courier companies to fulfil our mandate to you, etc.)
We undertake to protect your personal information in the prescribed manner, and will always ask your permission, before we obtain your personal information from you.
