Microsoft Azure Legal Information

Last updated: July 2016

Service Agreement & Terms

Your use of the Azure service is governed by the terms and conditions of the agreement under which you obtained the services. We have simplified our legal terms so that each of these agreements now incorporates the same Online Services Terms, which provide a common set of customer commitments, detailed Data Protection Terms, and EU Standard Contractual Clauses across our enterprise online services, including Azure, Office 365, and Intune.

  • For customers who purchase or renew a subscription (including free trials) online from Microsoft, your use is governed by the Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement, which incorporates the Online Services Terms.
  • For customers who purchase through another volume licensing agreement, such as an Enterprise Agreement, your use is governed by the volume licensing agreement under which you purchased the services, which incorporates the Online Services Terms. You can obtain a copy of your volume licensing agreement by contacting your Microsoft account representative or volume licensing.
  • If you do not have an Azure subscription, your use of the Azure service will be governed by the Microsoft Azure Website Terms of Use.

If you are uncertain or have other questions, please contact Microsoft Azure support.
