External/3rd Party Services

WP-Live Chat by 3CX makes use of the external services listed below in order to add functionality to the plugin and enrich the user experience.

WP Live Chat Activation API (https://activation.wp-livechat.com) (Required)

We use a server side generated unique identifier (GUID) in order to guarantee proper identification and secure communication between agents and visitors connected to same website. This is needed because a client side identifier could be spoofed. The only information sent with this API is your website URL, so your personal data is not sent to our servers. We only store website URLs and corresponding GUID. WP-Live Chat by 3CX Privacy Policy: https://www.3cx.com/wp-live-chat/privacy-policy/

Google App Engine (https://cloud.google.com/appengine/) (Optional)

We use Google App Engine to spawn or despawn multiregional low latency chat servers depending on chat load. This service is optional, and is not enabled by default. You can enable this service from within the Advanced Features settings menu. Google App Engine Privacy Policy: https://cloud.google.com/security/privacy/

Gravatar (https://en.gravatar.com/) (Required)

We use Gravatars to generate user and agent avatars within the live chat environemnt. This process is anonymized using the hashed email address of the visitor or agent respectively. Gravatar Privacy Policy: https://automattic.com/privacy/
