EU institution staff ‘unaware’ of Microsoft data misuse

Members of staff working across the EU institutions are “not aware” of the extent to which the US tech firm Microsoft collects and stores their data as part of the use of their products and services, the EU’s data protection watchdog has told.

The issue centres around the concern that the contractual terms under agreements for the provision of Microsoft products and services to the EU institutions could be in breach of EU data protection law.
