Learn about the purpose and data use of Skype for Business Project Hero

What is "Skype for Business Project Hero" and what data does it use?

Skype for Business Hero allows your IT Administrator to reward you for using Skype for Business to collaborate and communicate. The program represents the use of Skype for Business in an easy to digest format—in the form of usage badges tailored to your organization. Each badge represents an increased level of use of Skype for Business. The "Skype for Business Project Hero" program uses existing data collected by Skype for Business and does not require any additional, or increased levels, of data to be collected about any individual use of Skype for Business.

Information about use of Skype for Business is already collected by your organization. The "Skype for Business Project Hero" program rewards are based on usage data, such as the number of calls made, the number of IM's sent and the number of times features, like screen sharing, are used. The rewards you receive are based on these interactions and your level of product use.

As part of opting into the "Skype for Business Project Hero" program, your IT Administrator receives a set of achievement related reports for your organization. This allows the IT Administrator to issue the reward badges for user achievements. Microsoft receives a report of the number of achievements earned by the organization as a whole. Microsoft does not receive any additional user data as part of the program and the report Microsoft receives does not identify any individual users within your organization.

The data collected by Skype for Business and information on how this data is used and stored is available via the Skype for Business Privacy Statement.
