Privacy - FAQs
Get answers to frequently asked questions about profile privacy, so that you can learn how to get the most out of your SAP Community experience.
Where do I set my privacy preferences for SAP Community?
Why am I required to have a public profile display to participate in the SAP Community?
The SAP Community has always been built around interactions between individuals, so we expect these interactions to involve members with public identities. This is not a new expectation of SAP Community members, employees or otherwise.
What happens if I stop visiting SAP Community?
In compliance with our data protection and privacy policies, we regularly anonymize user accounts that have been inactive for several years, removing the account and attributing its content to Former Member. This process is permanent and cannot be reverted.
To ensure that this anonymization doesn't occur to you, you simply need to log in to your profile occasionally. If you go several years without logging in, you run the risk of losing your account.
How can I find out what personal data SAP keeps on me?
You can also download your community content and personal information through your content settings. Go to the Personal tab, then select Personal Information. You'll find the download links at the bottom of that page.
How does SAP collect, use, and store personal data?
