POPIA Policies & Procedures

The personal information Bella Manga Country Escape is given by clients, prospective clients and followers include Name, E-mail Address, Contact Number, Business name & information, which we use to contact clients and answer any queries received from our website or social media platforms. This information is stored digitally on e-mails.

The information we keep is strictly relevant. ONLY information absolutely required to do this effectively is requested and kept legitimately for as long as the client requires our support and/or where the law requires us to keep records. We will never sell or share private information with 3rd parties.

Bella Manga Country Escape secures the integrity and confidentiality of personal information in our possession or under our control by taking appropriate, reasonable technical and organisational measures to prevent unlawful access to, loss of, damage to or unauthorised destruction thereof. We take steps to establish and maintain appropriate safeguards against those risks, including cyber-attacks. Please note though that data transmission across the internet is inherently insecure and therefore, although we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee that your personal information will always remain private.

Our incident response plan is to report any actual or suspected breaches (security compromises) as soon as reasonably possible to both the Information Regulator and the data subject/s involved. Where third parties (“operators”) hold or process any personal information for you (e.g. e-newsletter facilitators), they should act only with our authority, treat the information as confidential, and have in place all the above security measures.

The information we hold is kept behind digital security measures such as passworded log-ins and physical security measures such as locked doors, alarm system and armed response.

All previous, current and past suppliers, employees and clients have the right to participate in their data and can e-mail the Information Officer to request that their information be updated, deleted, destroyed, objected to or to raise complaints if required.

Although only the registered information officer (Jenny Sturgess) currently has access to private info stored (so nothing can "fall through the cracks"), where relevant, staff members will be trained accordingly.

As a small business that does not employ more than 50 persons, does not exceed turnover threshold for the industry, Bella Manga Country Escape is exempt from having a s51 PAIA Manual.

Here are all the systems, technology and programmes we use in serving our clients and prospective clients: Microsoft Windows 10, MS-Office Suite including email, browsers like Firefox, Edge & Chrome, Facebook, Google, Whatsapp, Contacts & Facebook Business suite. We confirm that we use Anti-Virus software, user access controls, back-ups and encryption where provided.

Bella Manga Country Escape collects via e-mail and phone calls, information needed to serve our clients. The processes around the storage and duration of storage of such private information is solely dictated by what we need to be able to provide the support for as long as the data owner requires our support.

"Great Stay Christmas with 2 little kids (1 and 5 yo). The kids liked the area with all the animals and especially feeding the donkeys. Our Rondavel was great with enough space for the 4 of us. Baby chair and cot was provided. The kids liked that they could decorate a Christmas tree and also found some presents there ;) Excellent laundry service."

"We spent 2 nights in the forest cottages. Such a beautiful setting, lovely garden, and the only sounds are that of birds and cows. The cottages are well equipped and I loved the large deck. An early morning cup of coffee gazing out at the surrounding forest and breathing in the fresh farm air was the best."
