Privacy Consent Modal

The Privacy Consent Modal is a feature designed to enhance privacy management. This customizable tool enables administrators to craft a personalized privacy message, incorporate links to additional resources, and adjust the call-to-action (CTA) button according to their requirements. The Privacy Consent Modal displays a tailored paragraph of text on the screen, ensuring users are informed about their privacy options before starting a conversation with the chatbot.


This feature is made available to Forethought customers for use. The customer is fully responsible for ensuring that this feature and any inputs, including the tailored privacy message and linked resources, comply with data privacy and/or other relevant laws, rules, and regulations. Customers are strongly advised to consult their legal counsel to ensure compliance with such laws, rules, and regulations. Forethought disclaims all liability for any non-compliance, legal issues, or disputes that may arise from the use of the privacy feature.
