In SAP CDP, customer data privacy is at the forefront of our data ingestion and activation process.

Customer data privacy PII

According to various customer data protection regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR in Europe or the Personally Identifiable Information or PII in the U.S., only customers themselves should have complete control over their data. Customers have the right to rectify their data and to be informed of the purpose of the data and usage scenario. They also have the right to be forgotten.

Data Governance in SAP CDP is about controlling the data that is sent to destination applications and the data that is saved to the customer profile.
