PMD recognizes that its priority under the POPI Act is to avoid causing harm to individuals. PMD will keep information securely in the right hands and retain good quality information.
The Act aims to ensure that the legitimate concerns of individuals about the ways in which their data may be used are taken into account. In addition to being open and transparent, PMD will seek to give individuals as much choice as it possible and reasonable over what data is held and how it is used.
PMD has identified the following potential key risks, which PMD addresses:
- Breach of confidentiality (information being given out inappropriately)
- Insufficient clarity about the range of uses to which data will be, leading to candidates being insufficiently informed
- Failure to offer choice about data use when appropriate
- Breach of security by allowing unauthorized access
- Harm to individuals if personal data is not up to date
PMD respects the privacy of all candidates. We collect and process information of candidates in order to place them successfully in an appropriate position.
Examples of information collected:
- Contact number
- ID copies
- Salary advice
- Employment history
Disclosure of Information
PMD may disclose candidate information to potential employers.

PMD is legally obliged to provide adequate protection for the Personal Information we hold to stop unauthorized access and use of personal information. PMD will, on an on-going basis, continue to review our security controls and related processes to ensure that all candidate’s Personal Information is secure.
