Popia regulates the way personal information may be processed, and its conditions are consistent with international standards and prescribe the minimum threshold requirements for the lawful processing of personal information. Popia also gives people rights and remedies to protect their personal information from processing that is not in line with Popia; and it establishes voluntary and compulsory measures, including the establishment of an information regulator, to ensure respect for and to promote, enforce and fulfil the rights that Popia protects.

• ask a responsible party for a record or a description of the personal information that they have about you, including information about the identity of all third parties or categories of third parties who have or have had access to your information.
