iOS Dependencies

Android Dependencies

The software development kits (“SDKs”) provide access to software tools, that when embedded into a mobile application, help enable the collection and transmission of data to perform basic operations required for the service. Data collected through Messaging for In-App and Web falls into three categories: pre-chat data, messaging data, and logging data. For more detailed information about each category, refer to these sections.

Pre-Chat Data

  • Data types collected:
    • Personal info such as name and email. Most pre-chat forms contain some personal info.
    • Other info. Other data collected depends on how you design your pre-chat form.
  • Details: All data specified in the pre-chat form is securely transmitted to Salesforce using HTTPS communication (TLS 1.3). Depending on how you handle pre-chat data, this data is stored in Salesforce during your service subscription, or until you take action to delete it. You can change this behavior from Salesforce. You can even remove the pre-chat form altogether.

Message Data

  • Data types collected:
    • In-app messages. User messages get sent to agents through Salesforce.
    • Photos. Users can send photos to agents.
    • Other info. Any content a user types into a message is sent to an agent or chatbot.
  • Details: All user messages are securely transmitted to Salesforce using HTTPS communication (TLS 1.3). This data is stored in Salesforce during your service subscription, or until you take action to delete it.

Logging Data

  • Data types collected:
    • App interactions
    • Other actions
  • Details: For logging purposes, we send anonymized information to Splunk servers using HTTPS communication (TLS 1.3). This data doesn't contain any customer-identifiable or hardware-identifiable information. We log info about how users interact with the SDK, and we log some basic system information while they use the SDK, such as battery stats.
