Microsoft Office 2013, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, OneNote, and Publisher, is designed to help protect your privacy. Because your privacy is our priority, Office gives you tools to help you share documents with the people you want, as well as to find and remove hidden information you may not want to disclose. To learn more about Office privacy, read the Office Privacy Statement.
You can find privacy settings for Microsoft Office in the Trust Center. You can get to the Trust Center in every Office program by following the same steps.
If you plan to share an electronic copy of an Office document, it’s a good idea to review the document for any hidden data or personal information that you might not want to share. The Document Inspector can help you do that.

Note: Get more information about Document Inspector and the types of information it can find and remove.
