In doing so PORT can provide individuals (data subjects) with the ability to view the data that a business or organisation holds on them, as well as make requests of their data in line with the rights provided to them by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Customers are responsible for their own Personal Information and that of data subjects that they manage and share through PORT, that they upload and make available on or through PORT, or that they transfer by any other means. Customers confirm that they have all the necessary consents from data subjects whose data and/or content they share with PORT and hereby indemnify PORT for any liability or claim arising against PORT in connection with illegal distribution of third-party content or unlawful use of the Service.
PORT does not moderate the Personal Information or content provided by Customers or by third parties but will act if complaints are received from Customers or Data Subjects or if orders are issued by the public authorities regarding content deemed offensive or illegal.
Customers grant PORT the rights necessary to operate and maintain PORT and to make available any Personal Information provided by a Customer to the data subjects to whom it relates.
