Please note, however, that SAP can or will delete your Personal Data only if there is no statutory obligation or prevailing right of SAP to retain it.

Right to obtain a copy of Personal Data

If SAP uses your Personal Data based on your consent or to perform a contract with you, you can further request from SAP a copy of the Personal Data you provided to SAP. In this case, please contact cla_assistant@sap.com and specify the information or processing activities to which your request relates, the format in which you would like to receive the Personal Data, and whether it should be sent to you or another recipient. SAP will carefully consider your request and discuss with you how it can best be fulfilled.

Right to restrict

You can request from SAP to restrict your Personal Data from further processing in any of the following events:

  • you state the Personal Data about you is incorrect, subject to the time SAP requires to check the accuracy of the relevant Personal Data,
  • there is no legal basis for SAP to process your Personal Data and you demand SAP to restrict your Personal Data from further processing,
  • SAP no longer requires your Personal Data, but you state you require SAP to retain such data to claim or exercise legal rights or to defend against third party claims, or
  • in case you object to the processing of your Personal Data by SAP based on SAP’s legitimate interest (as further set out below), subject to the time required for SAP to determine whether it has a prevailing interest or legal obligation in processing your Personal Data.

Right to revoke consent

Wherever SAP is processing your Personal Data based on your consent, you may at any time withdraw your consent by unsubscribing or giving Us respective notice of withdrawal. In case of withdrawal, SAP will not process Personal Data subject to this consent any longer unless legally required to do so. In case SAP is required to retain your Personal Data for legal reasons your Personal Data will be restricted from further processing and only retained for the term required by law. However, any withdrawal has no effect on past processing of Personal Data by SAP up to the point in time of your withdrawal.

Right to lodge a complaint

If you take the view that SAP is not processing your Personal Data in accordance with the requirements in this Privacy Statement or under applicable data protection laws, you can at any time, to the extent required by applicable law, lodge a complaint with your locally relevant data protection authority, specifically when you are located in an EEA country, or with the data protection authority of the country or state where SAP has its registered seat.

VIII. How can you exercise your data protection rights?

Please direct any requests to exercise your rights to cla_assistant@sap.com.

IX. How will SAP verify requests to exercise data protection rights?

SAP will take steps to ensure it verifies your identity to a reasonable degree of certainty before it will process the data protection right you want to exercise. When feasible, SAP will match Personal Data provided by you in submitting a request to exercise your rights with information already maintained by SAP. This could include matching two or more data points you provide when you submit a request with two or more data points that are already maintained by SAP. SAP will decline to process requests that are manifestly unfounded, excessive, fraudulent, represented by third parties without duly representing respective authority or are otherwise not required by local law.

X. Can you use SAP’s services if you are a minor?

Children.

In general, cla-assistant.io is not directed to users below the age of 16 years, or equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction. If you are younger than 16 or the equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction, you cannot register with and use cla-assistant.io.

B. Additional Country and Regional Specific Provisions

I. Where SAP is subject to privacy requirements in the EU/EEA or a country with national laws equivalent to the GDPR

Who is the relevant Data Protection authority?

You may find the contact details of your competent data protection supervisory authority here. SAP’s lead data protection supervisory authority is in Germany, the Landesbeauftragter für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit Baden-Württemberg and can be reached at Lautenschlagerstraße 20, 70173 Stuttgart.

What are the legal permissions for SAP to process Personal Data?

SAP is processing your Personal Data for the business purposes set out above based on the following legal permissions: Where We refer to GDPR Article 6.I (f), consequently SAP’s legitimate business interest as Our legal permission to process your Personal Data, SAP is pursuing its legitimate business interests:

  • to efficiently manage and perform its business operations,
  • to maintain and operate intelligent and sustainable business processes in a group structure optimized for the division of labor and in the best interest of Our employees, customers, partners, and shareholders,
  • to operate sustainable business relationships with SAP customers and partners including you (each of which as further set out below),
  • serve you with the best possible user experience when using cla-assistant.io,
  • comply with extraterritorial laws and regulations, or
  • assert or defend itself against legal claims.

We believe that Our interest in pursuing these business purposes is legitimate and thereby not outweighed by your personal rights and interest to refrain processing for such purpose. In any of these cases, We duly factor into Our balancing test:

  • the business purpose reasonably pursued by SAP in the given case,
  • the categories, amount and sensitivity of Personal Data that is necessarily being processed,
  • the level of protection of your Personal Data which is ensured by means of Our general data protection policies, guidelines, and processes, and
  • the rights you have in relation to the processing activity.

If you wish to obtain further information on this approach, please contact cla_assistant@sap.com.

To provide you with access to cla-assistant.io

When SAP grants you access to cla-assistant.io, validates your (GitHub) identity and keeps the information of a signed Contributor Agreement available to the project owners leveraging cla-assistant.io, SAP is processing your Personal Data on the basis of the following legal permissions:

  • GDPR Article 6.I (a) if your consent is required by law for SAP to process your data for this purpose,
  • GDPR Article 6.I (b) if necessary, to fulfill (pre- )contractual obligations with you,
  • GDPR Article 6.I (f) if necessary, to maintain Our business relationships, to efficiently manage and perform its business operations, to maintain and operate intelligent and sustainable business processes in a group structure optimized for the division of labor and in the best interest of Our employees,
  • a legal permission under other national laws equivalent to any of the above, when applicable.

How does SAP justify international data transfers?

As a global group of companies, SAP has group affiliates and uses third party service providers also in countries outside the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). SAP may transfer your Personal Data to countries outside the EEA as part of SAP’s international business operations. If We transfer Personal Data from a country in the EU or the EEA to a country outside the EEA and for which the EU Commission has not issued an adequacy decision, SAP uses the EU standard contractual clauses to contractually require the data importer to ensure a level of data protection consistent with the one in the EEA to protect your Personal Data. You may obtain a copy (redacted to remove commercial or irrelevant information) of such standard contractual clauses by sending a request to privacy@sap.com. You may also obtain more information from the European Commission on the international dimension of data protection here.

Data Subject Access Requests: SAP receives Data Subject Access Requests from across the globe and works to ensure all valid requests where SAP is the Controller are responded to within the appropriate timeframe. In accordance with the verification process set forth in the CCPA, SAP will require a more stringent verification process for deletion requests, or for Personal Data that is considered sensitive or valuable, to minimize the harm that might be posed to you by unauthorized access or deletion of your Personal Data. If SAP must request additional information from you outside of information that is already maintained by SAP, SAP will only use it to verify your identity so you can exercise your data protection rights, or for security and fraud- prevention purposes.
