Other content we collect when providing products to you include: Video or recordings.
Recordings of events and activities at Microsoft buildings, retail spaces and other locations.
If you enter Microsoft Store locations or other facilities, or attend a Microsoft event that is recorded, we may process your image and voice data. Information you provide to us and the content of messages you send to us, such as feedback, survey data and product reviews you write.
We also use the data to operate our business, which includes analysing our performance, meeting our legal obligations, developing our workforce and doing research.
In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect from different contexts (for example, from your use of two Microsoft products) or obtain from third parties to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalised experience, to make informed business decisions and for other legitimate purposes.
Other examples of interactions data include: Content.
Content of your files and communications you input, upload, receive, create and control.
These third-party sources vary over time and include: If you represent an organisation, such as a business or school, that utilises Microsoft’s Enterprise and Developer Products, please see the “Enterprise and Developer” section of this statement to learn how we process your data.
When you are asked to provide personal data, you can decline.
Microsoft collects data from you, through our interactions with you and through our products for a variety of purposes described below, including to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with our products.
You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a Microsoft account, administer your organisation’s licensing account, submit a search query to Bing, register for a Microsoft event, speak a voice command to Cortana, upload a document to One Drive, purchase an MSDN subscription, sign up for Office 365 or contact us for support.
For these purposes, we combine data we collect from different contexts (for example, from your use of two Microsoft products).
For example, Cortana uses the favourite sport teams you add to the Microsoft Sports app to provide information relevant to your interests, and Microsoft Store uses information about the apps and services you use to make personalised app recommendations.
This privacy statement explains the personal data Microsoft processes, how Microsoft processes it and for what purposes.
