• Privacy

        You own and control your data.

    Microsoft understands that when you, our customer, use our cloud services, you are entrusting us with your most valuable asset—your data. You trust that its privacy will be protected and that it will be used only in a way that is consistent with your expectations.

    For more than 20 years, Microsoft has been a leader in creating online solutions designed to protect the privacy of our customers, and today the Microsoft Cloud infrastructure supports over a billion customers around the globe.

    Our experience provides the foundation for developing industry-leading privacy policies, compliance programs, and security measures that we apply across our cloud computing ecosystem. Our time-tested approach is grounded in our commitment to give you control of the collection, use, and distribution of your customer data.

    In the following pages, we describe the specific policies, operational practices, and technologies that help ensure the privacy of your data in Microsoft enterprise cloud services.
