|End Users (or Chat User)||The users of the Chatbots that Customer hosts using the Platform. In other words, the target audience of the Chatbots, like customers of Customer.|
|Users||These are employees, contractors and/or representatives of the Customer using the Platform Studio to build, host, monitor, maintain and operate Chatbots.|
The following types of Personal Data are considered “**User Specific Data” **and holds data of the User:
|Data Subject Category||Personal Data Type||Description|
|Users||User Access Data||Email and Password that allows the User access to the secure parts of the Subscription Service (Platform Studio)|
|Users & Chat Users||User Identity & Profile Data||The firstname, lastname, email address and profile information which might be retrieved from any of the connected Third Party providers like Facebook, such as the profile picture of the User.|
|Users & Chat Users||Third Party access tokens||Users can decide to connect Chatbots and Chat Sessions to third parties using OAuth, an open standard for access delegation, commonly used as a way for Internet users to grant websites or applications access to their information on other websites but without giving them the passwords. This mechanism is used by companies such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter to permit the users to share information about their accounts with third party applications or websites.|
|Users & Chat Users||Chat Channel information||Information that is sent by a Chat Channel which User decides to connect to that will be made available to this Chat Channel on instigation of the User, like IP address, browser version, screen resolution, locality and timezone.|
The following types of information contains all User and End User submissions using the Chatbots (“Chat Data”). Chat Data might contain Personal Data if the Customer, User and/or End User decides to use it for this purpose. This is outside of providers area of control.
|Data Subject Category||Type||Description|
|Users & Chat Users||Chat Messages||Chat Messages are submissions of Chatbots, Users and End Users using one of the supported Chat Channels and/or the Platform.|
|Users & Chat Users||Chat Media||Chat Media is any video, image or audio submission or any other file sent as part of a Chat Message into or from the Platform.|
|Data Subject Category||Type||Description|
|Users||User Access Data||To allow access to the Platform Studio|
|Users||User Identity Data||To allow Users to see which other Users within the same Subscription Service are online and on which Chat Sessions they are working, and to allow for basic workflow.|
|Users||Third Party access tokens and profile information||To connect to third party web services and Chat Channels.|
|Users||Chat Channel information||To allow the Platform to customize the service to the User|
|Data Subject Category||Type||Description|
|End Users||User Identity Data||To allow Chatbots to service their End Users. E.g., a Chatbot might need to ask the name of an End User in order to have a smooth Chat conversation, like “Hi xyz, how are you doing?”.|
|End Users||Third Party access tokens and profile information||To allow End Users to connect to third party services they have an account with. For instance to connect the CalendarBot to their Google Calendar in order for the CalandarBot to know when the End User is free or busy.|
|End Users||Chat Channel information||To allow the Chatbots to use data that is available in the connected Chat Channels, like Facebook, such as timezone or locality information so the Chatbot can offer a tailored service to the End User.|
Data transfers between the web client interface of the Platform and the Platform will be encrypted with TLS using RSA 2048bit encryption and SHA256 signature algorithm.
Connection of Chatbots with other Chat Channels will occur using the Developer API’s offered by those channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, etc. The User and/or End User will need to explicitly authenticate against these channels and explicitly grant access using OAuth, an open standard for access delegation, commonly used as a way for Internet users to grant websites or applications access to their information on other websites but without giving them the passwords. This mechanism is used by companies such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter to permit the users to share information about their accounts with third party applications or websites (“Authentication Providers”).
Chat Media is stored as publicly downloadable files with a random name which anybody with the URL of this file can access. The file name will be long enough for it to be virtually impossible to guess.
Users and End Users can always choose to use the Platform to send Chat Messages and Chat Media containing Personal Data or even Sensitive Information. Provider is by no means able to recognise and/or prevent such Personal Data being submitted. Provider acts purely as a Processor in these cases and Customer as Controller.

|All data generated and collected over one of the supported Chat Channels by the Subscription Service||Like Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Slack and Telegram||To offer automated chat services over existing messaging channels. (the interface over which the Chatbots will be exposed)|
|Third Party access tokens and profile information||OAuth supporting Authentiction Providers (like Google, Facebook, Linkedin, Microsoft, etc)||To allow Users and End Users to authenticate to a Chatbot using one of the supported Authentication Providers and to fetch corresponding profile information from these channels.|
