The new regulation gives you new important rights concerning your personal data. From 25 May 2018 you will have enhanced rights that give you:
Know what data is being held about you
Ability to change data held about you
Withdraw access to your data at any time
Given your data in a structured machine-readable format to be re-used elsewhere
That's just the start. PORT enabled websites will give you the ability to exercise these rights and much more in a simple to use service that puts all your data at your fingertips.
Compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) doesn't have to be difficult. PORT has spent the last two years building the simplest to use personal information platform to comply with GDPR so that you don't have to! PORT makes it simple to comply with the 10 principles of GDPR compliance:
Personal data must only be processed on the basis of one of the following legal grounds:
Procedures must be in place for people to exercise their rights in an effective manner. Including but not limited to:
Information about data processing practises must be concise, transparent, intelligible and in easily accessible form.
Personal data must be collected for specified, explicit, legitimate purposes and not processed in a way incompatible with those purposes.
Personal data must be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.
Personal data must be accurate and kept up to date and every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that inaccurate personal data is erased or rectified.
Personal data must be kept in a form which permits identification of the data subjects for no longer than necessary for the processing purposes.
Personal data must be protected against accidental loss, destruction or damage.
Personal data must be processed using appropriate technical security measures including protection against unauthorised processing.
You have responsibility for and must be able to demonstrate compliance with all of the aforementioned points.
By putting your users in control of their data with PORT, you can shortcut your route to GDPR compliance.
Having worked with personal data for several years, we thought there had to be a better way! We've had a strong belief for years that putting people in control of their data was not only the right thing to do, it enabled much more exciting services and better relationships with businesses. Thankfully, we weren't the only ones! Our vision is embodied by the new EU General Data Protection Regulations. Sick of building yet another database full of personal data, implementing authentication mechanisms and encryption and now compliance processes, we thought other people must be too. We built PORT to take the pain out of managing personal data relationships compliantly.
We joined the StartupBootcamp InsurTech accelerator program in January 2017. With the help of some awesome advisors we plan to launch our Beta service in April this year.
