new Microsoft privacy aggreement

skypeenglish at (Jerry Pryde via Skypeenglish)...

Yes: I got this too.
As far as I can tell, it just means they've pulled all their material into
one privacy aggreememt for all MS products.
I don't think it affects how anything functions.

Cornelius, the other day I discovered that Skype 7.6 is now out, and
with this version SkypeWatch no longer announces Facebook contacts
signin in and/out, and also the corresponding checkboxes are gone in the
notifications settings.

Important ? new Microsoft Services Agreement & Privacy Statement for Skype

When Microsoft acquired Skype in 2011, we brought together our communication
technologies to help you stay closer to friends, family and colleagues. And,
if you're like millions of other people who use a number of Microsoft's
services (for example, for email, Bing, Xbox, Office 365, etc.)
we're making life a little easier for everyone. How? Well, most of
Microsoft's consumer services are being brought together under a single
Microsoft Services Agreement and a consolidated Microsoft Privacy Statement.

We'll be moving from Skype's current Terms of Use and Privacy Policy to the
new Microsoft Services Agreement and the Microsoft Privacy Statement on
August 1, 2015.

Do you need to do anything? These are important documents and we encourage
you to read them by navigating to the links at the bottom of this email. By
continuing to use Skype after August 1, 2015, you agree to these updated
terms. Should you disagree, simply discontinue using Skype or cancel your
subscription before then. If you are a parent or guardian, you are
responsible for your child's or teenager's use of Skype, including

Here are the highlights:


Many of our customers use more than one Microsoft service, and have agreed
to a number of terms and privacy policies. To make it easier to use multiple
services, we've brought together these documents into a single services
agreement and a consolidated privacy statement that cover most of our
consumer services.


Our longstanding commitment to privacy has not changed. We remain dedicated
to protecting your data, being clear about how we use it, and putting you in
control. For example, we do not use the contents of your email, chat, video
calls, documents, photos, or voice messages to target advertising to you.
And as you'll see when you read the privacy statement, we offer a range of
tools that enable you to make decisions about what data we collect.
Additionally, we have launched a new privacy dashboard
that makes it easier for you to make choices about how we use your data.


We're using straightforward language so our terms of use and privacy
statement are easier to understand. In addition, we've put key privacy
information all in one place, so you no longer have to jump between several
documents to understand the big picture. While this consolidation eliminates
redundancies and simplifies the structure of the information, we continue to
provide service-specific details to allow you to make informed choices about
how you use our services. We've also added some additional privacy
information about new features and functionality we'll soon roll out, like
those you'll see on Windows 10.
