We are updating the Microsoft Services Agreement, which applies to your use of Microsoft consumer online products and services.
This restructuring was designed to eliminate redundancies, improve usability, and increase clarity and transparency.
We updated the Microsoft Privacy Statement in October 2015 and January 2016 to further consolidate different privacy notices, improve clarity, and describe new product features and functionality.
On August 2, 2016, we will publish additional updates with the same objectives.
None of the changes will represent a change in policy or practice for Microsoft.
Yes, we do share your information in certain cases.
We’ve detailed when we share data in the Microsoft Privacy Statement.
The Microsoft Services Agreement is an agreement between you and Microsoft (or one of its affiliates) that governs your use of Microsoft consumer online products and services.
You can see a full list of the covered products and services here.
We encourage you to read the full Microsoft Privacy Statement so that you’re clear on what data we’re collecting and how we handle it.
Last year, we brought together many separate privacy statements into a single Microsoft Privacy Statement covering most Microsoft consumer offerings.
Some of our services require payment, such as applications and games available through our Windows, Xbox, or Office app stores, ad-free Outlook.com, One Drive extra storage, or an Office 365 consumer subscription.
