Data Protection, Compliance and Trust

Trust is a top priority at PURQ. We hold millions of student records and our contributing academic partners and students trust us with some of their most sensitive information.

We make this data available to many customers including companies, enterprises, government institutions, students and educational institutions in many countries. These recipients of the information are concerned that our data is accurate, up to date, and that our systems are secure and compliant with constitutional principles and legislation.

We also know that our students and academic institutions care deeply about the privacy and security of their information. That’s why we adhere strictly to the letter and spirit of the laws that govern data protection and compliance, and are fully committed to operating in a proactive, law abiding and positive manner.

We have implemented stringent processes that ensure all the data is securely stored and protected whilst in transit between our servers and clients’ computer systems and browsers. We also implement sophisticated technical and physical controls that are designed to prevent unauthorised access to or disclosure of the records.

PURQ meets all the statutory conditions for the lawful processing of personal information. We have aligned our systems to ensure the promotion and protection of the right to privacy and the right of access to information. Specifically, our systems comply with the Protection of Personal Information Act and the Promotion of Access to Information Act.

In a nutshell section 32 of the Constitution enshrines the right of access to certain information, and the Promotion of Access to Information Act gives effect to that right. The Act protects your right to information and ensures that access will only be granted once certain requirements have been met.

The Protection of Personal Information Act is a key piece of privacy legislation that governs how data is recorded and used, and the permissions required for us to hold and share information. It covers the collection, processing and use of personal data for any reason.

For PURQ, maintaining our students’ and customers’ trust is an ongoing commitment. Our policies are in line with current international privacy trends and laws and we strive to stay abreast of evolving privacy and data security law, practices and technologies.
