We may also collect information about your customers, including but not limited to, the information communicated while interacting with Agents through the third-party applications listed in Appendix 1 (the “User Applications”).

In such circumstances, the Partner Business is the data controller and the Service Provider is the data processor of all such information and data (the “Consumer Data”), and as such the Partner Business exclusively controls how the Consumer Data is used.

In rendering the Service, we use the User Applications. Accordingly, you should refer to the privacy policy document and other terms and conditions of said applications (links to which can be found in Appendix 1).
