Privacy policy

The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA)

The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) is a South African law which obliges organisations to deal appropriately with the processing of personal information.

POPIA protects your constitutional right to privacy and the right to access of information. It was signed into law by our President on 1 July 2020 to be effective by 1 July 2021 and much work has taken place behind the scenes in preparation for this deadline.

What does the POPIA mean for you as a Scrolla reader?
Scrolla’s operating company Olduvai Pty is now obliged by law to deal with your personal information with far more diligence than ever before. This includes how and why information is collected, how it is processed, shared, stored as well as access to this information.

The privacy of your personal information We care about the privacy, security, and online safety of your personal information and we take our responsibility to protect this information very seriously.
Below is a summary of how we deal with your personal information.
