Talkative helps organisations convert online customers by enabling human communication through websites. The Talkative solution allows companies to embed voice, video, chat and cobrowsing into their websites.
Talkative cookies can be considered as being in two different categories: Pre-Interaction Cookies, and Interaction Cookies.
These two cookies provide the agent with a concise overview of which website pages the customer visited (on only that same website) before starting an engagement session (e.g. chat/call), to give the agent some context around the purpose of the customer's visit. These cookies expire after 1 hour.
Talkative uses an additional cookie once an interaction (chat, webcall, cobrowse) has started:
This cookie ensures engagement sessions continue across page changes and is required for security reasons. This cookie expires after 1 year, since it is used to identify 'returning' visitors, providing agents with context of previous interactions. Talkative also stores chat transcripts and the IP address of this interaction. This data is deleted after 6 months in line with the standard Data Processing Agreement. Further cookies that can be included, depending on the nature of the interaction, are as follows:
