LEGAL IMPLICATIONS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA
Hirsch’s Centurion recently hosted an informative event where attorney, Helette Louw from Jordaan Attorneys, gave a talk on the legal implications and the pitfalls of using social media in one’s business.
Commented the store PRO, Tsz Yan Lau, “Helette, who was admitted as an attorney of the High Court of South Africa in 2016 and has practiced in Cape Town and Gauteng started her talk with the do’s and don’ts of social media, covering topics like discrimination, the POPI act and what one may post in terms of direct marketing.
She spoke on a few laws that a business owner should follow and told them that one should always be updated on new laws as one can “accidentally” become a criminal without keeping on track.
The event ended with the attendees networking and mingling over a cappuccino and snacks.
