Was your inbox full with Popia messages these past weeks? Well, Popia is actually a good thing. Essentially, the purpose of the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) is to protect people from harm by protecting their personal information. This was done to minimise criminals from stealing your identity (often used to steal from you), and to attempt to give you more privacy and stop the growing misuse of personal information.
So when it comes to the personal information that YOU have at our office – from your staff’s information to your suppliers and customers – the idea is to keep that information safe and away from others – even when you work from home! (So if you use your spare office paper as scrap paper for your children to draw on, do you ensure that this paper doesn’t contain someone’s personal information? Just in case that drawing isn’t actually for you! ?)
Postwink has a range of lockable confidential paper bins to keep this potential problem from happening, like the Leather-Touch Confidential Bin or lockable wheelie bins.
And when it comes to us: At Postwink, we do NOT share your information with third-parties – ever. We use your information to be able to deliver your orders, send you the quotes you need, and to send you information on any specials or special announcements -we aim not to bombard you with daily emails and our marketing mailers are carefully crafted to target only those specific customers whom we think could benefit from this particular special or announcement.
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries on our policies – you can find a copy of these on this website.
