CLOUD: Microsoft updating terms of use and privacy statement

We’re updating our terms of use and privacy statement.

 

Our users’ needs are at the center of everything we do. That’s why we are updating the Microsoft Services Agreement and providing a Privacy Statement for Windows Services. We want to take this opportunity to highlight some of the key changes and what they mean for you.

 

 

Privacy
As part of our ongoing commitment to respecting your privacy, we won’t use your documents, photos or other personal files or what you say in email, chat, video calls or voice mail to target advertising to you.

 

Transparency
We updated our Code of Conduct so you can better understand the types of behaviors that could affect your account, and added language that parents are responsible for minor children’s use of Microsoft account and services, including purchases.

Simplicity
We tailor our privacy statements for each of our products to help make it easier for you to find the information that is important to you.

 

The Microsoft Services Agreement applies to your Microsoft account and includes many of our customer services such as Outlook.com, OneDrive, and Bing, while the privacy statement explains how your personal information is collected, used and protected across your Microsoft account, Outlook.com and OneDrive.

 

The new updates to these will take effect on July 31, 2014. If you continue to use our services after July 31, 2014, you agree to the updated terms or, if you don’t agree, you can cancel your service at any time.

 

We encourage you to use the links below for further details and to view the full agreements online.

 

Thank you for using Microsoft products and services.
