About Stack Overflow Enterprise Microsoft Teams Integration

Stack Overflow has developed an integration with Microsoft Teams that Customers can take advantage of by creating a Microsoft Teams app that integrates functionality from Enterprise with Microsoft Teams. It facilitates collaboration across the platforms.

Through the Integration, you can:

  1. Search Enterprise from Microsoft Teams: Search Enterprise by @-mentioning the Enterprise bot in a channel with a message that starts with ‘search’ or chatting the Enterprise bot with a message that starts with ‘search’.
  2. Receive Microsoft Teams messages from Enterprise: Setup webhooks that provide notifications through Microsoft Teams as messages to a Microsoft Teams channel or chat.

When you choose to set up or use the Integration, it will be necessary for us to collect some information about you for our own purposes as controller. This Privacy Notice describes this information and what we use it for. In all other circumstances, Stack Overflow acts as processor, acting on our Customer’s behalf and instructions in relation to personal information held within Enterprise.

  • A mapping of your account in Microsoft Teams to your account in Enterprise.
  • Your IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location, information about how and when you use Enterprise and other technical information. This information is needed to maintain the security and operation of Enterprise. This information helps us identify attacks by malicious users and we don’t use your information for any other purpose.

More information about how we use personal information and your rights can be found in our Enterprise Privacy Policy. Our Customer ultimately controls their Enterprise instance. Each Customer controls their own Enterprise instance and acts as controller in relation to personal information held within it. Please contact your organisation or the Customer through whom you accessed the integration for more information on the collection and use of your information and your rights.
