According to the document, “These online platforms have to act expeditiously to remove, disable, or block access to non-consensual content that exposes a person’s private areas, full or partial nudity, sexual act, or revenge porn, where such content is targeted to harass, disrepute, or intimidate an individual.

A platform must acknowledge the receipt of the complaint and take down the content within 24 hours.”
