The new legal requirements to comply with the GDPR not only impacts companies' public communications, but it also covers internal communications. Especially when you communicate and collaborate with external users in a Confluence system - for example in a Confluence-based extranet with customers, partners, suppliers, and applicants - increased data protection requirements and extended obligations to disclose information now apply.
Space Privacy protects personal information
Features such as user profiles and mentions are very useful in many scenarios. But the native Confluence security mechanisms protect only content - they don't protect users, their personal data or its visibility.
Space Privacy makes sure that the features in a Confluence extranet can not be used to see information about other users, those that they should not be able to see. These protected spaces are fully protected – including the users who collaborate and communicate in them. Standard users, who are assigned to an extranet space, can only see users and their data within that extranet space. They can not see user profiles, mention or find users who belong to an extranet space they are not a member of.
For example, this prevents customers of different companies or different partners from inadvertently "running into each other".
