Welcome to SAP Conversational AI, the collaborative bot platform. SAP Conversational AI is operated by SAP SE. (“SAP Conversational AI”, “we” or “us”).
The Services are not intended for individuals under 13 years of age. If you are under 13, you are strictly prohibited from using the Services, and you may not access any features that allow you to provide information to us or communicate and share information with other users of the Application (“Users”). Accordingly, you represent and warrant that you are 13 years of age or older and that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into, agree to and abide by these Terms.
You are responsible for ensuring that your use of the Services complies with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you. These Terms are void and use of the Services is not permitted where such use is prohibited by applicable law.
You may use the Application and Services to build chatbots that utilize our Services for your own personal use or to share with other users for their personal use. You are not permitted to use our Services (as well as our API) to build or deploy a chatbot used in your business or the business of another person or company to facilitate or enable the sale, licensing or other commercial distribution of goods and services to third parties or to automate any business process.
Your security and safety are paramount to us. The Services naturally promote sharing of personal information among Users. We do not and cannot assure that it is safe for you to have direct contact with any other individual that you come into contact with through the Services. If you believe that any individual is harassing you or is otherwise using personal information about you for unlawful purposes, we encourage you to first inform local law enforcement authorities and then to contact us at email@example.com, so that we may take appropriate action to block further use of the Services by any individuals who may have accessed them for improper purposes.
You agree to use any information (personal or otherwise) provided to you by Users, or otherwise through the Services, in a lawful and responsible manner. You agree that you will not use information about Users for any reason without the express prior consent of that User.
By accessing the Services, you agree to the following code of conduct:
i - You will not publish, display or use (hereinafter “post”) any defamatory, abusive, obscene, profane, threatening, harassing, racially offensive, discriminatory or otherwise offensive or illegal material.
ii - You will treat all fellow Users with dignity and respect.
iii - You will notify us promptly if you become aware of any User’s violation of these Terms.
iv - Any information contained in your Github profile and made accessible to other Users—including any telephone numbers, street addresses, last names, URLs, email addresses or other contact information—is posted at your own risk and we assume no responsibility for use of such information.
v - You will not impersonate any person or entity.
vi - You will not “stalk” or otherwise harass any User or other individual accessing the Services.
vii - You will not express or imply that any statements you make are endorsed by us without specific prior written consent.
viii - You will not use manual or automatic processes to retrieve, index, datamine, or in any way reproduce or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of the Services or their contents. This prohibition does not include standard indexing by Internet search engines, which hereby is explicitly permitted.

Your use of the Services, including but not limited to any content you post, must be and shall be in accordance with any and all laws and regulations that apply to you and your use of the Services.
Opinions, votes, advice, statements, offers, or other information or content made available through the Services are those of their respective authors and should not necessarily be relied upon. Such authors are solely responsible for such content. We do not: (i) guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information on the Services or (ii) adopt, endorse or accept responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice, or statement made by any party that appears on the Services. Under no circumstances will we or our affiliates be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from your reliance on information or other content posted through the Services or transmitted to or by any Users.
You understand that we, at our sole discretion, at any time, for any reason or no reason whatsoever, can deny or block any user from the Services and terminate any user’s account if he/she is a User.
You acknowledge and agree that we have no duty whatsoever to prescreen, control, monitor or edit the content posted by Users and we are not liable for content that is provided by others. However, you understand and agree that we may, but are not required to, review, edit and delete any content, email, messages, photos, music, or other content that, in our sole judgment and discretion: (i) violate these Terms; (ii) may be offensive, disturbing, unsafe, or illegal; or (iii) may violate any rights of other Users or third parties.
You acknowledge and agree that we may from time to time modify, change, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, in whole or in part, any aspect or feature of the Services without notice to you, including changes to usage and to access procedures. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any such modification, change, suspension or discontinuance.
We and our licensors own and retain all proprietary rights in the Services. You own any proprietary rights created in any chatbot you create using the Services, subject to our rights in the Services.
Subject to these Terms, we grant to you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, fully paid license to access the Application Content, for the sole and limited purpose of facilitating your use of the Services.
Throughout the Service, it is possible to encounter content supplied by other users of the Service (“User Content”). We will not use, or distribute, any content created by you and hosted in your private library. If you allow your bot to be seen by the community (as a “public” bot), you are giving us permission to distribute and duplicate the contents contained within the structure of your bot. You are not permitted to use User Content to build or deploy a chatbot used in your business or the business of another person or company to facilitate or enable the sale, licensing or other commercial distribution of goods and services to third parties. You may not use any User Content as part of a commercial offering.
By submitting, posting or displaying User Content or other content or data (including content or data provided by other Users) on or through the Services, you grant us a worldwide, sublicensable, non-transferable, non-exclusive, terminable, limited license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such User Content for the sole purpose of enabling us to provide you with the Service in accordance with these terms. You represent, warrant and agree that you will not contribute any User Content that:
i. infringes, violates or otherwise interferes with any copyright or trademark of another party;
ii. reveals any trade secret, unless you own the trade secret or have the owner’s permission to disclose it;
iii. infringes any intellectual property right of another or the privacy or publicity rights of another;
iv. is libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, indecent, threatening, harassing, hateful, offensive or otherwise violates any law or right of any third party;
v. may contain a virus, trojan horse, worm, time bomb or other computer programming routine or engine that is intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or information; or
vi. violates any Github content guidelines.
You will not use personal data of any person (other than your personal data) to train your bot, or otherwise use, process or transmit to the Service any personal data of a person, prior to making your bot public via the Services. Personal data means any data of a person that is protected under law, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) of the European Union.
If the Services access the Google Maps Service (“GM Service”) through a Google Maps API, your use of the GM Service is subject to Google’s Terms of Service, which are set forth at http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/. If you do not accept the Google Terms of Service, including, but not limited to, all limitations and restrictions therein, you may not use the GM Service in the Services. Use of the GM Service in or through the Services will constitute your acceptance of Google’s Terms of Service. Your usage of the GM Service in or through the Services can be terminated by SAP Conversational AI without reason at any time and SAP Conversational AI will not be required to provide an equivalent service via another provider.
Except for areas within the Services which are clearly identified as non-public spaces, You agree not to provide us or other Users with any confidential or proprietary information that you or the owner of the information do not intend to become public information.

As used herein, Confidential Information means all trade secrets and other information which we or third parties protect against unrestricted disclosure to others which is either labeled “Confidential”, accessed through a non-public area of the Services, or reasonably identifiable as confidential based on the type of information and the manner of its disclosure, and reasonable steps means those steps a prudent commercial entity would take to protect its own similar Confidential Information, which shall not be less than a reasonable standard of care.
