Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

Due to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that came into law on the 25th May 2018, The Bot Platform requires that you mark any PII that you collect in your bots as such and clearly request consent beforehand.

User attributes marked as PII allow people to review the PII that has been collected and delete it upon demand.

Should you wish to collate and store that data, you will need to gain consent from the user. Please click this link to learn how to do this through a series of messages on the Platform - GDPR consent.

  • First and last name
