What does this mean for your business?
As a business, you need to comply with the 8 conditions that set out the minimum requirements of processing information. These are as follows:
Information quality refers to your responsibility to ensure that you have taken reasonable and practical steps to ensure that the relevant personal information is complete, accurate, not misleading, and updated accordingly.
Openness is where you are required to maintain documentation of all your relevant processing operations as per the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA). This relates to ensuring that you have taken reasonable steps to ensure that the data subject is aware of the information being collected, the purpose of the information collection, etc.
Further processing limitation is where additional processing of personal information may occur, in these instances, you need to ensure that it is still in line with the original purpose for which it was collected.
