MISA together with Global Business Solutions hosted two sessions with you, our members, on 12 & 16 July 2021 for the sole purpose of empowering you with knowledge regarding the newly enacted Protection of Personal Information Act 4 of 2013 (POPIA). If you’ve missed these sessions you may listen/view the session by following the following link: MISA POPI and Cyber Crimes.
In terms of POPIA you are a ‘data subject’ of MISA. Simply put, MISA is in possession of some of your personal information for specific purposes and processing thereof goes to the core functions and services provided by MISA, as a registered trade union, to you.
POPIA defined ‘personal information’ as follows in as far as it relates to your relationship with MISA, by virtue of being a MISA member, and for the following purposes:
Promotions and Communications
It is crucial for you to stay on top of the latest developments on legislation, MISA Benefits and the Motor Industry. It is for this reason that MISA sends you the monthly e-data, weekly articles and communication via WhatsApp, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. Know, that in doing so, your personal information is not shared, but your personal contact details is utilised to communicate with you.
MISA cannot process any of your personal information without your participation. The data in our possession was provided by you for a specific purpose, such as applying to be a MISA member or claiming one of the MISA benefits.
Processing your personal information is subject to CLIP:
Personal Data already in our possession are encrypted and MISA does not need further consent from you, as MISA member, as you have already provided your consent for specific purposes.

You may request to have access to your personal information that is in MISA’s possession and for that personal information to be corrected, deleted or destroyed. Bear in mind that some information must be kept in terms of legislation for a set period, depending on the type of personal information.
