The DMASA Data Protection Compliance Programme is officially live!
The DMASA creates another, after the DNC (Do not contact database) that has protected both consumers and business for over five years. The DPCP meets the more stringent sections of POPIA and helps the business navigate the path of corporeal compliance. An Africa first innovative initiative.
Registering on this database will mean that you will not be contacted by members of the DMA (Direct Marketing Association of Southern Africa).
This helps you to make sure your address, email address, telephone and cell number are no longer available to organisations, who are members of the DMA, who want to make offers and send information that you do not wish to receive. You can also do this by contacting companies directly and asking them not to contact you.
The DMASA has recognized the need for its members to have access to practical compliance tools and through the deployment of this portal, members and non-members have access to a world-class e-learning portal, a self-help compliance document generator and the DMASA’s new Data Protection Compliance Programme.
Through this portal, the DMASA affords its members access to cost-effective resources which enable:
An effective online risk assessment process through registration on the DMASA’s DPCP.
Online training opportunities through the DMASA’s E-Learning Portal.
The generation of necessary compliance documentation using the automated document generator.
