New Protection of Personal Information Act

As you may know, the new Protection of Personal Information Act has come into effect as of 1 July 2021.  The POPI Act sets out some conditions for responsible parties to lawfully process personal information of data subjects.

There is a section of the Act that specifically deals with Direct Marketing in any form. This is Section 69, which outlaws direct marketing in all electronic communications, unless the data subject has given their consent to receive such communications. This includes all electronic communication such as emails, SMS, and automatic calling machines.
