Data Protection and Compliance
At Rahn Monitor, we are committed to ensuring the protection of personal information as required by the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) of South Africa. We adhere to the principles of data protection and privacy in accordance with POPIA. This includes, but is not limited to, processing personal information in a lawful, legitimate, and responsible manner.
In addition to our commitment to POPIA, we also comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for our users in the European Union. This means we take all necessary steps to ensure personal data is processed lawfully, transparently, and for a specific purpose. Once that purpose is fulfilled and the data is no longer required, it is deleted to ensure your privacy and security.
Under both POPIA and GDPR, individuals have rights regarding their personal data. These rights include the ability to request access to personal data, correct any inaccuracies, object to processing under certain circumstances, and request the deletion of personal data where applicable.
Rahn Monitor is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of data privacy and security. We continuously review and update our practices to ensure compliance with both POPIA and GDPR. We are committed to transparent practices, respecting user privacy, and protecting your data.
We process personal data only with your explicit consent, unless legally required otherwise. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Our data processing activities are always aimed at providing a secure and efficient experience while using our service.
Personal data may be transferred outside of South Africa or the EU only in compliance with legal frameworks ensuring an adequate level of data protection. Rahn Monitor adheres to international data transfer standards under both POPIA and GDPR.
In the unlikely event of a data breach, we are prepared to promptly notify affected individuals and relevant authorities, as required by POPIA and GDPR. Our team is committed to taking immediate action to mitigate any potential harm.
Rahn Monitor has appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) to oversee compliance with POPIA and GDPR. The DPO is responsible for data protection governance and can be contacted for any data protection-related inquiries at [email protected].
Users have the right to request the erasure or rectification of their personal data, as per the stipulations of POPIA and GDPR. Requests for data erasure or rectification can be made through our user account settings or by contacting our support team.
Rahn Monitor regularly conducts compliance audits to ensure adherence to POPIA and GDPR standards. These audits help us to continually improve our data protection strategies and practices.
