Before connecting you to an Advisor there is some important information to read and agree to.

Your personal data and confidentiality

During the webchat you may choose to disclose sensitive personal data. Anything you tell us is confidential, in line with our confidentiality policy, but we need your consent to process it.

By processing, we mean to send it through our website in webchat messages. The provider of the webchat infrastructure (Salesforce) keeps secure records of webchats in their servers and sends us transcripts, which we keep on a secure cloud-based service for 6 months from the date received. We don’t use technology to identify your IP address.

For quality monitoring, the Helpline Manager occasionally observes webchats in real-time and takes notes about the service provided. These notes don’t include any information that could identify you.

By connecting with the webchat service, you are consenting to the above.
