    At Microsoft, we believe privacy starts with putting our customers in control and providing the tools and information that customers need to make informed choices. Microsoft has been considering and addressing privacy issues associated with cloud computing and online services since the launch of The Microsoft Network (MSN) in 1994, and we remain committed to protecting our customer’s privacy. Microsoft works to responsibly manage and protect data we store, to be transparent about our privacy practices, and to offer meaningful privacy choices. These three tenets—responsibility, transparency, and choice—are the foundation of Microsoft’s approach to privacy.
