Organizations now have new privacy policies to observe when using Microsoft's enterprise products, including Microsoft's servers and online services.
We may also contact you regarding third-party inquiries we receive regarding use of the Online Services, as described in your agreement. You will not be able to unsubscribe from these non-promotional communications.
The Enterprise Products policy could conflict with an agreement between Microsoft and an organization. In such cases, "the terms of those agreement(s) will control," the policy stated. However, the policy adds that "some Enterprise Products have their own, separate privacy statements."
The change history for Microsoft's privacy policies can be found at this page.
IT pros likely may not spend much time thinking about organizational privacy compliance issues. However, now it's in writing and in several places to check if organizations are using Microsoft's enterprise products and services.
