For data protection purposes, Stockup is the controller and, unless otherwise noted, is also the processor of data. Information collected may be retained indefinitely, and may be stored, processed, accessed, and used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different to South African legislation and less protective than those of your home jurisdiction.
