The preamble to the Protection of Personal Information Bill, 2009 (“POPI”) states that it will regulate, in harmony with international standards, the processing of personal information by public and private bodies in a manner that gives effect to the right to privacy subject to justifiable limitations that are aimed at protecting other rights and important interests.
Users of YBuy.co.za acknowledge that YBuy takes the protection of personal information seriously, and in particular the compliance with data privacy laws such as POPI.
Keeping information about you secure is very important to us and certain sections of the site may encrypt data using SSL or a comparable standard. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. As a result, whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information which you send to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Accessing and updating your personal information
We will always let you have a copy of the personal information we have about you, should you request it, and you may correct it if you wish. Instructions about how to do this are available from info@YBuy.co.za.
