SAP will hold the results of the examination in a database in order to be able to ascertain, if necessary, what certification a candidate holds and whether a candidate can be admitted to other examinations. SAP may also use the data held to provide targeted information to certified candidates and to enable candidates to retrieve specific information. SAP may also inform others of successful candidates’ certification.

 

5.     Changes to test taker information

  • In the event of a minor infringement of the examination rules, the exam of the candidate concerned will be documented as a “fail” but the candidate may retake in accordance with the SAP retake policy.
  • Infringement of copyright and other unlawful harm to SAP will be treated as a serious infringement of the examination rules and will result in the actions indicated above. SAP will use proper judgment and fairness in deciding whether an infringement is serious or minor. The candidate concerned will receive written notification of the actions with justification of this action.

 

9.     Law and Jurisdiction 

 

  • These Conditions of Participation apply to the exclusion of all other conditions. These Conditions cannot be changed or added to, and SAP’s failure expressly to reject a change or addition will not be construed as SAP’s acceptance of the change or addition.
