Purpose of this Privacy Notice 

We at the Little Mowbray and Rosebank Community Improvement District (“LMRID”), are committed to protecting the privacy of our members, businesses within our district and other persons we provide assistance to and ensuring that their personal information is collected and used appropriately, lawfully and transparently.

This Privacy Notice sets out briefly how we use your personal information in accordance with the Protection of Personal Information Act (“POPI”).

“Personal Information” basically means any personal information that identifies a person, as defined in POPI. If you provide Personal Information to us about another person (like family members or other persons in your business), you must inform that person about this Privacy Notice and get their permission (where possible) for sharing their Personal Information with us.

It is important that you read this Privacy Notice together with any other privacy notice or fair processing notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing Personal Information about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your information. This Privacy Notice supplements the other notices and is not intended to override them.

To provide our services and run our business, we will collect, use and disclose your Personal Information, including “special” Personal Information, such as health information. Where we do this, we will either rely on your consent or on lawful grounds set out in POPI, for example:

  • preparing to enter into or performing a contract with you;
  • complying with obligations placed on us by law;
  • protecting your legitimate interests;
  • having a legitimate interest to require your Personal Information.

Responsible party 

LMRID is a “responsible party” under POPI and, as such, is responsible for the Personal Information we have about you and registered with the South African Information Regulator.

We have appointed an Information Officer who is responsible for overseeing our compliance with POPI. If you have any questions about this Privacy Notice or any of our privacy practices, please contact our Information Officer using the details set out below.
