Review your privacy policy to bring it in line with the latest law 2018-01-25T09:30:54+00:00

Do you already have a privacy policy or privacy statement? If yes, is it up-to-date and in line with the latest law? It is an important legal document that:

  • creates contractual rights and obligations, and is essentially your promise to the world about how you will treat personal information;
  • is also a trust and brand building exercise in that it reassures people, and makes you more likely to succeed in collecting their personal information;
  • is the mechanism through which you comply with many parts of the law, by allowing you to specify your purpose, be open about your processing, and allow a data subject to participate.

Questions you should be asking

  • Are you wondering whether yours is in-line with the latest laws and regulations?
  • Does it comply with the GDPR and the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI Act)?
  • Are you worried that you are missing things in it?
  • Is it broad enough to cover all your data subjects?

If you answered yes, you need to review your privacy policy. If you think your privacy policy is beyond repair draft you a new one for you.

A due diligence privacy policy review

Reviewing your privacy policy is an important exercise. We can conduct such a due diligence review of your existing policy and provide you with a report. Some of the issues that we will deal with are the following:

  • Does it comply with the latest law?
  • The structure of the policy.
  • The language of the policy. Is it in plain language?
  • Is it likely to make your customers or employees (whichever situation it applies to) trust you as an organisation?

Why don’t you get us to do a due diligence review of your privacy policy now? You’ve got nothing to lose and much to gain. We’ll give you a practical and meaningful report, together with suggested amendments, recommendations and action items. A proactive step now could save you from a horrible mess.
