I recently got a question from a user that I'm not quite certain how to answer. Basically I run a service that will allow users to submit content for analysis. The data submitted is very rarely stored, but we will typically log one piece of content every so often for debugging purposes.
We are not presenting this to anybody externally, but would be storing it. Someone recently asked if we allowed the analysis of child pornography. (one of the services we offer is pornography detection, though it's clearly not meant for this purpose).
I have no idea how to answer this question. Are we liable for the content that our users submit if we aren't displaying it? Does anyone have experience with this?
Generally it's not possible for us to know what our users submit so this isn't so much an issue, but in this case in particular the user directly asked.
