Information We Collect
The term “personal information” refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, company name, phone number, email address, postal address or payment information (e.g credit card holder information, bank account holder information).
Personal information is collected during your registration with ‘URWORLD’ and is necessary to provide our products and services.

Transferring information internationally
Operators and partners
As our core service depends on telecommunications services provided to us by various national mobile network operators, (collectively, the “Operators”), we may be required to share your personal information with them, in order to be able to provide you our Services, if the Operators have made the transmission of personal information a mandatory condition for granting service using their network. From time to time ‘NAKA’ may also employ or engage other companies and individuals to perform services on our behalf.
Examples of this include sharing a copy of your identification document in order to receive a phone number from a country that requires registration of personal information for all prepaid and postpaid customers, provision of accounting, legal and financial services, fulfilling orders, shipping packages, sending postal mail, processing credit card payments and providing customer service. ‘NAKA’ maintains ownership and control of the information so used.

POPI Act – South Africa
South Africa’s main data protection law, POPI, was enacted in 2013. Since then, certain provisions of the Act relating to the establishment of the Information Regulator and regulations under POPI have come into force. The full POPI Act will only take effect once a date has been determined by the President.
The conditions and principles of GDPR and POPI are in many ways the same. Both necessitate compliance with processing of personal data, the Regulator to be notified of a privacy breach and regulates which data can be sent cross-border.
In essence, if a company complies with GDPR, it will comply with POPI.
