Processing Personal Information
In terms of POPI we are required to detail how and what personal information we process. We process personal information to save you time and money by helping you find the most suitable products or services for your needs. To better understand our data subjects so we can match you with the most suitable provider who best caters for your needs.
We process the personal information of economically active people in SA who are older than 18.
We process many different kinds of personal information, mainly names, numbers, age, address, and insurance history.
We provide your information to providers of products or services who can offer the best deals on what you want, saving you money and time.
We do not plan to transfer personal information across borders out of SA, but we may do so to secure or backup the data, or for technical reasons. The nature of cloud computing means that some data may be transferred across borders. Where it is within our control we will only transfer data to other countries who have similar privacy and data protection laws as our own.
How we protect personal information
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
The services we use make use of relatively secure data transmission and storage technologies to reasonably protect your personal information from unauthorised disclosure and maintain your personal information’s integrity. For more details you can read our comprehensive Information Security Policy.
