As websites are being used increasingly for simple and complex transactions, an individuals’ personal information is finding its way into online databases and is being stored on internet servers. This information can be highly sensitive, such as data pertaining to:
- Financial matters;
- Access codes and pin numbers;
- Credit card details;
- Account information and particulars;
- Employment history;
- Confidential business information and data;
- Date of birth.
Other information may also find its way into online archives which are used to store or process information. These may include:
- Work history;
- Criminal records;
- Medical records; and
- Other personal details, such as, address, marriage status, assets, income.
These details can be used for various reasons, such as online commercial transactions, payment of bills, debts and liabilities, application for employment, enrolment into schools and universities, transfer of medical information between doctors and hospitals and generally transferring data between statutory institutions and updating details held by government departments.
The law is becoming increasingly concerned about the use of this personal information and the right to privacy and has introduced more restrictions on the use of this information.
