In the meantime, you have a number of options to control or limit how PORT, our partners, and other third parties use cookies:

You can modify your settings in most web browsers to accept or deny cookies, or to request your permission each time a site attempts to set a cookie. Although cookies are not required for some parts of our services, PORT may not work properly if you disable cookies entirely. For example, you cannot log into https://www.port.im if you've disabled all cookie use.

We are developing a cookie tool so users can manage their detailed consent. Businesses like yours will benefit from end-to-end privacy compliance from first touch point right through to subject access request and have the audit trail to match.
