Privacy at Microsoft

Our customers own and control their data


You own and control your data

Microsoft understands that when you, our customer, use our business 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.

Our time-tested approach to privacy is grounded in our commitment to give you control over the collection, use, and distribution of your customer data. We are transparent about the specific policies, operational practices, and technologies that help ensure the privacy of your data in Microsoft business cloud services.

The Trust Center site provides legal and compliance teams with a comprehensive repository of information resources designed to help them understand and verify the compliance requirements of their organization’s cloud deployments.
