The National Credit Act (NCA)

and Debt Review

The National Credit Act is a consumer credit legislation that promotes a fair and non-discriminatory marketplace for customers to access credit and that balances the rights of consumers and credit providers.


Debt Review is a process that was implemented through the National Credit Act 34 of 2005 (“NCA”). It allows over-indebted consumers to approach their credit providers with the assistance of a Debt Counsellor and reach an agreement on restructuring their debt obligations.

Protecting your emails with S/MIME and other security updates

With S/MIME, the content of your email is encrypted using keys and then transported to the recipient. By encrypting your emails in transit, not only can you keep confidential data out of the wrong hands, but you can also rest assured that your emails cannot be tampered with.

S/MIME’s digital signature signs each email with your unique key, eliminating the risk of anyone impersonating you. Since the digital signature works both ways, it also helps ascertain the identity of the sender in the S/MIME protected emails that land in our inbox.

Email Disclaimer and additional information with regards sending emails

An email disclaimer is a disclaimer, notice or warning which is added to an outgoing email and forms a distinct section which is separate from the main message. The reasons for adding such a disclaimer include confidentiality, copyright, contract formation, defamation, discrimination, harassment, privilege and viruses.

 

"The information contained in this email is confidential and may contain proprietary and/or personal information. It is meant solely for the intended recipient. Access to this email by anyone else is unauthorised."
