South Africa’s Protection of Personal Information Act
signed into law by the president, establishes requirements
for how both public and private organizations process
personal information. Organizations who are subject to POPI
and who engage in the collection, storage, or processing of
personal information, must comply with this law.
Google provides product capabilities and contractual
commitments to facilitate our customers’ compliance with
South Africa's POPI Act. Customers that are subject to POPI
can define how their data is stored, processed, and
protected by signing a Data Processing Amendment
for Google Workspace and/or Google Cloud Platform.
