Who we are

Our website address is:

The Protection of Personal Information Act No 4 of 2013 (colloquially known as “POPIA”) came into force on 1st July 2021.  By virtue of your relationship with Johan Kotzé Brokers (“JKBrokers” for short) we are defined by the Act as a “Responsible Party” and you as our “Data Subjects”.  This puts a duty upon JKBrokers to deal with your personal information at all times in accordance with POPIA.  We should beforehand caution that privacy is an important priority across the world, and seeing that JKBrokers respects privacy it calls for a slightly long read for which we beg your patience, understanding and thorough consideration.

Should you, therefore, be a regulator visitor or a client procuring services from JKBrokers, or a supplier providing products and services to JKBrokers, JKBrokers may process personal information about you the data subject related to names, surnames, nationality, identification number, age, gender, marital status, private correspondence, email address, physical address, telephone numbers,  and account numbers. The purpose of processing such personal information about you is to communicate directly with you, to carry out the typical duties required of short term insurance brokers in performance of the agreement concluded between yourself and JKBrokers, to protect your legitimate interests through such performance, and to comply with relevant statutory provisions. 

At all times, where personal information has changed in any respect, you are encouraged to notify JKBrokers so that its records may be updated. JKBrokers will largely rely on you to ensure that personal information is correct and accurate by sending a clear message in this regard to the JKBrokers Information Officer at 

You also have the right to access your personal information that JKBrokers may have in its possession and you are entitled to request the identity of which third parties have received and/or processed personal information for the purpose agreed to.  Please submit any requests for access to your personal information in writing to JKBrokers at With any request for access to personal information, JKBrokers will require you to provide personal information in order to verify identification and therefore the right to access the information. There may be a reasonable charge for providing copies of the information requested.

Through reading this statement you are explicitly requested to resolve whether you consent to JKBrokers processing your personal information. Should you not consent, please do so by sending a clear message in this regard to JKBrokers at stating that you do not consent to your personal information being processed by JKBrokers.  Should you not respond by 16th August 2021, your consent for JKBrokers to process your personal information is implied.  Should you choose to opt out from JKBrokers processing your personal information, you understand that withholding consent or failure to disclose personal information will result in JKBrokers being unable to perform its functions and/or any services or benefits you may require from JKBrokers. You also indemnify and hold JKBrokers harmless in respect of any claims against JKBrokers by any other person on whose behalf you have consented should they claim that you were not so authorised.  You may withdraw consent to the processing of personal information at any time, and should you wish to do so, you must provide JKBrokers with reasonable notice to this effect. Please note that withdrawal of consent is still subject to the terms and conditions of any contract that is in place between yourself and JKBrokers.

In conclusion, from the above you will gather that we do attend to privacy and the associated duty to protect your personal information with the necessary urgency and commitment it deserves.  We thank you in anticipation for your thorough consideration of the above!
