Important Notes:

  • This commitment will apply across all of Microsoft's main cloud services Azure, Microsoft 365, and Dynamics 365.
  • Microsoft's cloud services already meet EU regulations.
  • Microsoft Online Services already enable customers to comply with the GDPR even without this additional commitment to store and process data within the EU boundary.
  • This declaration is in line with the objectives of the EU's digital strategy, see A Europe fit for the digital age (German version).
