Adams & Adams is committed to implementing the requirements of the newly introduced South African Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA). In the process of sending out privacy notices, we inadvertently communicated the email addresses of some of our client contacts to a limited number of clients. We are addressing this as a matter of urgency.
In accordance with POPIA, the firm has executed the following steps in order to address the situation:
- We have communicated with all individuals that received the email addresses in error and have requested that they delete the email and document immediately and confirm with us once they have done so.
- We have notified all client contacts whose information was inadvertently shared.
- We have also alerted the Information Regulator of the incident
Adams & Adams is committed to ensuring the security of all personal information that is shared with us and sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused as a result of the incident.
Please contact our Chief Operating Officer, David Forbes on firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries in relation to the above.
