In accordance with the imminent application of the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation, Port 80 Services has created this page to explain exactly what data we hold, for what purpose and how you can access it.
The General Data Protection Regulation Overview
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU privacy law that will come into force on May 25th, 2018. Its aim is to strengthen and standardise privacy laws across the EU.
The GDPR will give control of personal data back to consumers through tighter controls over those who host and process such data. It stipulates that people must have a legal right to access, correct, delete or transfer personal information held about them on any company system. They must also provide their explicit consent for their personal data to be held, after which companies must save this consent.
