POPI act





The purpose of this policy is to advise the client/ user (data subject) of LEKKER ROOIBOS, both electronic and otherwise, why data is collected and processed, what data is in focus, and how it is processed. LEKKER ROOIBOS is committed to full compliance with the POPI Act insofar as the utilisation and disclosure of data subject personal information (PI) is concerned. Hence, technical and operational measures have been implemented to protect data subject privacy. LEKKER ROOIBOS invites all data subjects and requesters to engage with its Information Officer (IO) in respect of any matter related hereto.


Scope of application

This policy applies to data subjects under the POPI Act, and its principles extend to the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) regarding requesters of records held by LEKKER ROOIBOS. PI applies to both natural and juristic persons. Data subjects and requesters are invited to engage with the LEKKER ROOIBOS' IO  about any matter about the POPIA and PAIA, including but not limited to updating PI, deletion of PI, complaints in respect of how PI is being processed and updating consent for electronic direct marketing. The "Information Officer" portal on the website facilitates these types of engagement.

Purpose of Collecting and Processing PI

LEKKER ROOIBOS processes PI for various purposes, including for – 

  • Engaging in various forms of direct marketing 
  • Facilitating transactions with data subjects
  • Collecting data for statistical purposes to improve its services
  • Fulfilling its contractual obligations to its clients and client contacts

  • Audit and record-keeping purposes
  • In connection with legal proceedings.


Lawful Basis

In respect of the processing of PI as provided for above, LEKKER ROOIBOS will adhere to the conditions for the lawful processing of PI, based on its desire to provide data subjects services in their best interests as well as a legitimate interest of LEKKER ROOIBOS to achieve its business objectives. 



 Period of holding Personal Information

LEKKER ROOIBOS endeavours to provide the most accurate information possible to stakeholders, including data subjects. LEKKER ROOIBOS seeks to verify the accuracy of its information as frequently as possible and to remove information that it learns to be inaccurate. Thus, LEKKER ROOIBOS intends to process the information it has about data subjects for so long as it is accurate or until the data subject instructs LEKKER ROOIBOS to refrain from processing it.

Notwithstanding the above, LEKKER ROOIBOS shall hold PI for such period as may be required in terms of statutes such as the Companies Act and various labour laws.


Data Subject Rights 

Data subjects have the right to request that LEKKER ROOIBOS provide them with access to their PI, to rectify or correct their personal information, erase PI or restrict the processing of PI, including refraining from sharing it or otherwise providing it to any third parties. Data subjects also have the right to raise complaints with the Information Regulator. The afore-going rights may be subject to certain limitations under applicable law. 



 Sources of Personal Information (PI)

LEKKER ROOIBOS gathers PI from several sources, which include directly from data subjects, publicly available sources such as websites, social media, commercial transactions with LEKKER ROOIBOS, referrals, and prospects. Given that PI can be extracted and obtained from several sources and consolidated into one CRM or similar systems of record, it may be difficult or impossible to identify the exact source of one particular piece of information.

LEKKER ROOIBOS gathers information about data subjects who may be clients, client contacts, prospective clients and prospective client contacts. It also contains information on its employees and suppliers as well as third parties that are part of its scope of operation.
