Personal data collection
1 Microsoft https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/privacystatement, Microsoft will directly or indirectly collect data from its users. The data is obtained by interaction through the use of its products. Data collected includes interactions, usage, and user experience with Microsoft products. Also, Microsoft gets its user data through third-party applications installed on Microsoft products.
However, users have choices regarding the data to be shared with Microsoft. When Microsoft asks its users to request personal data, you can reject it or approve it. However, many Microsoft products require users’ data so that users can use their services in full. If you decide not to share your data, you will not be able to use the service or product.
If it is related to personal data relating to the law or related to contracts, or if it is related to the Microsoft product that you are using, then it is likely that Microsoft will suspend or cancel it. Additionally, when it comes to sharing personal data that is optional and you decide not to share it, the personalization features on each Microsoft product might not be used.
What is the purpose of the personal data collected?
1 Microsoft https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/privacystatement, Microsoft collects these data for 4 purposes. The first purpose is to give Microsoft product quality improvement. The quality in question is by updating, securing, troubleshooting, and supporting. The second purpose is that the data is used to improve and further develop Microsoft products (ranging from upgrading, rebranding, infrastructure development, or new product releases). The third purpose is to be more able to personalize existing products until finally making recommendations. The fourth purpose is to perform advertising and marketing functions to users with appropriate and targeted promotions.
In addition to these 4 main objectives, personal data collected is also used for business operations. Such operations include performance analysis processes, legal obligation meetings, workforce development, and research and development needs. For all these purposes, Microsoft combines data collected from various contexts (use of various Microsoft products). Besides, Microsoft also gets the data from third-party applications to get data that is consistent and seamless.
And processing the data that has been collected, Microsoft uses automated and manual methods (using human labor). However, even the automated method still uses human labor, especially for the process of maintaining and developing the accuracy of the process. An example is an automated process that uses artificial intelligence (AI) while still using human power when reviewing predictions and inference the results of AI processing.
Why and when will your data be shared?
1 Microsoft https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/privacystatement, Microsoft, when it comes to sharing personal data, always uses the user’s consent. Microsoft also shares the data collected with Microsoft-control affiliates and subsidiaries. Also, Microsoft shares data with various vendors who work with Microsoft. The data will also be shared if there is a legal process, protecting Microsoft users, maintaining the security of Microsoft products, and also to protect the rights and property of Microsoft and its users.
Access and control your data
1 Microsoft https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/privacystatement, if you previously agreed to provide your data, then you can also access and control that personal data.

Your ability to access and control personal data will also depend on what products you use. For example, you as a user can control the use of data for interest-based advertising, by visiting the opt-out page.
