    Eight Principles of POPI

    ACCOUNTABILITY

    The responsible person must ensure that the 8 conditions of POPI are followed and adhered to

    PROCESSING LIMITATION

    Must be lawfully processed, in a reasonable manner.
    May only be processed if it is adequate, relevant and not excessive.
    Must have been consented to and collected directly from the subject (subject to provisions)

    PURPOSE SPECIFICATION

    Collected for a specific and explicitly defined and lawful purpose related to the activity or function of the responsible party
    Take steps to ensure that the subject is aware of the data collection
    Records must not be detained for longer than necessary

    FURTHER PROCESSING LIMITATION

    Must be in accordance with the purpose for which it was collected
    Responsible party must take account of the relationship between purpose of intended further processing and the initial purpose of collection

    INFORMATION QUALITY

    Responsible party must take reasonable practicable steps to ensure information is complete,
    accurate and not misleading.
    It must be updated where necessary and take into account the purpose for which collected

    OPENNESS

    Responsible party must maintain the documentation of all processing operations as referred to in section 14 or 51 of PAIA -
    Responsible party must take reasonable practical steps to ensure the subject is aware of
    the information being collected, the purpose and the source.
    If provision of information is voluntary or mandatory and the consequences of the
    failure to do so.
    Prior collection of data eradicates the need to follow above steps if the purpose
    is the same.

    SECURITY SAFEGUARDS

    Responsible party must secure the integrity and confidentiality of personal information
    in its possession or under its control
    Take reasonable technical and organisational measures to prevent loss of, damage, unlawful
    access or unauthorised destruction
    This includes risk management and steps to identify threats
    The regulator and subject must be informed if there has been or a reasonable expectation
    of a breach of security

    DATA SUBJECT PARTICIPATION

    A data subject, with adequate proof of identity has the right to request a responsible party
    to confirm, free of charge, whether they hold personal information of the subject
    Data subject may request the correction or deletion of personal information that is
    inaccurate, irrelevant, excessive, out of date, incomplete, misleading or obtained unlawfully
