I could not find any information about privacy on the 
web site.  I'll use you as an example.  If AfriNIC has your home 
address, can it store that information and other "private" 
information about you for the next 20 years even though you no longer 
have any relationship with it?  Can it transfer the information to 
other parties?

There was a data leakage at ICANN recently.  Would there be a 
notification if there was a data leakage at AfriNIC?  What are the 
requirements for such notifications?  Is there any information about 
all that being given adequate treatment under "Financial and Data 
Privacy" laws?  According to a survey I read, a web site you may have 
visited may be vulnerable to the BEAST attack.

I'll ask the other RIRs about whether there is any policy about 
Personally Identifiable Information.
