What’s up with Data Privacy in South Africa?

What’s up with Data Privacy in South Africa?

Published 14 Jun 2021 by Jarred Mailer-Lyons in Marketing

Jarred Mailer-Lyons, Head of Digital at The MediaShop

I was recently interviewed on East Coast Radio (ECR) about our phones tracking every move we make, the conversations we have and actions we take. While we don’t know exactly what data is stored, shared and used by some of the global tech giants – we do know that consumer data is core to their multibillion dollar services they offer to market.
