About This Guide
This guide is intended as a pretty high level overview of what privacy is in SouthAfrican law. This is a rapidly changing area of the law. My intention is not tocomprehensively explore any particular privacy law legal framework in South Africabut rather to take readers through this sometimes troubling landscape, point out thecurrent law and its trends as well as highlight particular risks. Of course I should alsopoint out that this guide focuses on South African legal frameworks and while theissues raised in this guide may be applicable to other jurisdictions, you should takespeci
c advice before applying this guide to foreign legal frameworks (at least foreignto South Africa).This takes me to the inevitable set of quali
cations and disclaimers for a work of thisnature. This guide is not a comprehensive or exhaustive discussion of the law relatingto direct marketing or the various legal principles involved. That would be a muchmore substantial work. While this guide does deal with these legal frameworks in somedetail, please don’t rely on this guide as anything other than a general introduction toits subject matter. You certainly shouldn’t rely on this guide as legal or otherprofessional advice without taking independent, appropriate and speci
c professionaladvice too.This guide is based on published versions of the various legal frameworks it discusseswhich are available on 2012-04-11. Some of these frameworks are being updated. Iwill endeavour to update this guide as these legal frameworks are updated or as trendsand ideas evolve but I’m not making any promises so, once again, don’t rely on thisguide as professional advice pertaining to your particular circumstances orrequirements.Lastly, a word about how you can use this guide.
