Microsoft Update Agreement 2019

On January 9, 2019, Microsoft updated its Services Agreement, which outlines the terms and conditions governing the use of Microsoft’s online services. The update aims to clarify and simplify the language used in the previous versions of the agreement, making it easier for users to understand their rights and responsibilities.

The Services Agreement applies to Microsoft’s various online services, including its software, applications, and websites. As such, the agreement covers a wide range of services, including Skype, Outlook, OneDrive, OneNote, and Xbox Live, among others.

One key change in the updated agreement is the inclusion of a new section on “Parental Controls.” This section outlines the tools and features available to parents and guardians who wish to limit their children’s access to Microsoft’s online services. Additionally, the section provides information on how to request the deletion of a child’s account and the deletion of any personal information that Microsoft has collected from the child.

Another significant change to the Services Agreement is the inclusion of a new section on “Inappropriate Content.” This section outlines Microsoft’s policies on the use of its services to promote or distribute content that is offensive, illegal, or harmful. Microsoft reserves the right to remove any content that violates this policy and to suspend or terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly violate it.

The updated agreement also includes a new section on “Data Protection.” This section provides information on how Microsoft collects, uses, and protects personal data. It outlines the types of data that Microsoft collects and the purposes for which it uses this data. It also provides information on how users can control the collection and use of their personal data.

Overall, the updated Microsoft Services Agreement aims to provide greater clarity and transparency to users regarding the terms and conditions governing their use of Microsoft’s online services. By outlining its policies on parental controls, inappropriate content, and data protection, Microsoft seeks to ensure that its users have a safe, secure, and positive experience when using its services.
