It also informs you of your data protection rights and how to exercise them. We recommend that you read SAP’s Privacy Statement:


What are Cookies and similar technologies?

Cookies are small files placed on your device (computer, tablet or smartphone). When you access a website, a cookie is placed on your device and it will send information to the party that placed the cookie.  

There are other technologies at perform a similar function to cookies. These include inter alia web beacons, clear gifs, and social plug-ins. These are often used in conjunction with cookies to help a website owner understand its users better. 


What are first party Cookies? 

SAP’s websites contain first party Cookies. First party cookies are cookies that are specific to the website that created them. These cookies enable SAP to operate an efficient service and to track patterns of user behavior to SAP’s website.


What are third party Cookies?

The difference between a first party cookie and a third party cookie relates to who places the cookie on your device. SAP sometimes allows third parties to place Cookies on your device. Third party cookies are placed on your device by a third party (i.e., not by SAP). While SAP allows third parties to access SAP’s website to place a third-party cookie on your device, SAP does not retain control over the information supplied by the cookies, nor does SAP retain access to this information.

What is a session and what is a persistent Cookie?

Our websites may place session and persistent cookies on your device. Whereas the difference between a first party and third-party cookie relates to the party controlling the initial placement of the cookie on your device, the difference between a session and a persistent cookie relates to the length of time the cookie lasts. Session cookies are cookies that typically last for as long as you are using your browser, or browser session. When you end your browser session, the cookie expires. Persistent cookies, as the name implies, are persistent and will last after you close your browser. This allows for quicker and often more convenient access to Our website.
