The ICO exists to empower you through information.

Our spokesperson said:

“We expect organisations to be transparent with users about how their data is being used and only process personal data to the extent that it is necessary to achieve a specific purpose. Industry must consider data protection from the outset and rigorously assess and mitigate risks to peoples' rights and freedoms before bringing products to market.

“We are making enquiries with Microsoft to understand the safeguards in place to protect user privacy.”
