These rights are not absolute and must be balanced against other competing rights. These rights may be limited owing to the nature of any legislative or public interest mandate, or they may be subject to an exception that may impact these rights. Where a further interest which the Group is mandated to protect, substantially outweighs to a substantial degree, the interference with your rights, the Group will as far as possible, explain the limitation or exception being relied upon and its impact on your rights.




Maintaining the security and integrity of your personal data is a high priority of the Group.

We endeavour to maintain appropriate technical and organisational measures, using accepted technological standards to prevent: (a) loss of, damage to, or the unauthorised destruction of Personal Information; and (b) unlawful access to or processing of Personal Information. The Group’s security systems, processes, procedures and controls are designed to maintain confidentiality, prevent loss of unauthorised access to and/or damage to Personal Information by unauthorised parties. In addition, we will conduct regular and continuous vulnerability and risk assessments and review our security controls and processes to improve our security posture and provide assurance to all stakeholders.


Measures employed by the Group to protect Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, robust IT security, regular IT security checks and back-ups, ongoing vulnerability and risk assessments, restricted access by authorised personnel only, password controls, locked filing cabinets with the key held by senior management, electronic alarm systems on each wing of the building, manned access into the office park, and security guard patrols.


The transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure. Although we have implemented security measures to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information when it is being transmitted to our website. Therefore, any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk.




The Group may, from time to time, share or disclose Personal Information with third parties, but only if:

  • you have consented;
  • an agreement is in place with the Group and the third party;
  • it is necessary to fulfil the Groups’ legislative mandate;
  • it is required by law (including laws outside of your country of residence);
  • the Group has a public duty to disclose it;
  • your legitimate interests require disclosure; and/or
  • it is required for legitimate business purposes.


Third parties may include, but are not limited to:

  • information regulators, including foreign information regulators;
  • other regulators, including foreign regulators;
  • registered auditors, including foreign auditors;
  • law enforcement agencies, including foreign law enforcement agencies; and
  • verification agents.


In addition to the above and for legitimate business purposes, the Group may be required to share your Personal Information with certain third-party service providers, which may include those who provide services such as website hosting and moderating, mobile application hosting, payment processing, order processing and fulfilment, IT services, legal and auditing services, e-mail and direct mail delivery services, storage services, customer service, data analysis, infrastructure provision and any other reasonable services which the Group relies on to conduct its business.


The Group will, as far as possible, take adequate measures to ensure that third parties with whom Personal Information is disclosed comply with existing laws and that they will protect the information disclosed. We will conduct internal due diligence and, where applicable, place appropriate contractual arrangements for this purpose.




Generally, the Group will not be transferring your information acquired through your use of any of our online platforms across borders. However, instances where, this may become necessary and appropriate would include, but not limited to, disclosures to:


  • other regulators outside of South Africa to fulfil a legislative mandate; or
  • law enforcement agencies for investigation purposes.


The Group acknowledges that other countries may not have the same level of protection as that which is afforded by the existing laws, however, we will put in place appropriate contractual arrangements and, as far as possible, conduct its own internal due diligence measures to protect your information. We will do our best to ensure that any third parties will treat your information at least with the same level of privacy and protection as that which is provided by us.




Once the purpose for which we require your Personal Information has been fulfilled, we will no longer be permitted to process it unless another legal justification for exists. Personal Information will be retained and destroyed by us as required or authorised by law, a contract or for the operational and business requirements of the Group. The existence of any ongoing or anticipated legal proceedings or a regulatory audit or investigation will also result in records being retained for an extended period.


Personal Information linked to clinical trials or foreign entities is generally kept indefinitely but within reason, meaning the records would be destroyed if an entity were to cease existing, or where so much time has passed that the information linked to a clinical trial would no longer be relevant.


The Group will only keep Personal Information for as long as is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, in accordance with one of the justifications outlined above and no longer than the period for the expiry of claims or as required by law. We will maintain policies and procedures to ensure that any Personal Information which is no longer required is deleted or destroyed.
