3 MEASURES

To ensure we can keep providing the Services and to give You the best user experience possible, we have implemented a number of measures. First of all, we have implemented a software tool that monitors all messages sent to and by the Chabot. If it detects a possible unacceptable situation, a team of specialized operators is notified. This team can intervene in real time in chats and stop them if an unacceptable situation occurs, for example if offensive messages are sent. The team only looks at messages when they receive a notification. It needs to process the content of those messages, which may contain Personal Data, to determine if an intervention is needed.

We subsequently use the information about an unacceptable situation, which may contain Personal Data, to teach the Chatbot to recognize such situations and prevent them in the future.
