Yes, the Microsoft Cloud offerings are transparent because at Microsoft, we believe that you, as the customer, have the right to be informed about every step we take when handling your data.
In our Trust Centers, you can read all about where your data is stored, who can access it, and learn about our sub-contractors who may handle personal data. Microsoft recognizes and joins with its customers in concerns over government access to data in the cloud. That’s why Microsoft, at the World Economic Forum, called upon world leaders to pursue an international convention on government access to data. It’s also why we post our Law Enforcement Requests Report online on a regular basis. We believe that, in this day and age, working in the cloud should be as transparent and carefree as possible.
