In South Africa, the POPI Act states that by law, you should only hold someone’s personal information for the period of time for which you need it. In the hotel industry specifically, this can amount to a lot of printed information and guest data that needs to be securely and safely disposed of.
Failure to comply with the POPI Act can cost your company millions, and could even lead to imprisonment. These punishments can be more severe for the GDPR, which protects the personal information of European citizens – including when they are guests in another country.
Let us help you avoid the risks. Simply dispose of your sensitive data into the on-site Erase Data Secure Console, and we’ll have it securely shredded by strictly authorized personnel, before being recycled. Better for your security, better for the environment.
