Supplemental Terms of Use for Microsoft Azure Previews

Last updated: February 2017

Azure may include preview, beta, or other pre-release features, services, software, or regions offered by Microsoft to obtain customer feedback ("Previews"). Previews are made available to you on the condition that you agree to these terms of use, which supplement your agreement governing use of Azure.

PREVIEWS ARE PROVIDED "AS-IS," "WITH ALL FAULTS," AND "AS AVAILABLE," AND ARE EXCLUDED FROM THE SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENTS AND LIMITED WARRANTY. Previews may not be covered by customer support. Previews may be subject to reduced or different security, compliance and privacy commitments, as further explained in the Microsoft Online Services Privacy Statement, Microsoft Azure Trust Center, the Online Services Terms, and any additional notices provided with the Preview. Certain named Previews may also be subject to additional terms set forth below, if any. We may change or discontinue Previews at any time without notice. We also may choose not to release a Preview into "General Availability."

Microsoft Azure Hybrid Use Benefit for Windows 10

Only Enterprise customers with Windows 10 Enterprise E3/E5 per user or Windows VDA per user (User Subscription Licenses or Add-on User Subscription Licenses) (“Qualifying Licenses”) are eligible to use Microsoft Azure Hybrid Use Benefit for Windows 10 (“Azure HUB for Windows 10”). Under this preview, users to whom a customer has assigned a Qualifying License may deploy and use Windows 10 images provided in the Azure virtual machine gallery (images designated as Azure HUB for Windows 10 images) on Microsoft Azure. Each such user may use up to four instances of the Windows 10 software subject to (i) the terms of the Windows Desktop Operating System Product Entry in then-current Microsoft Volume Licensing Product Terms and these preview terms, and (ii) the requirement that each user is managed through Azure Active Directory. Ongoing use of the Windows 10 software under Azure HUB for Windows 10 is permitted under the same terms until the end of the fourth full calendar month following the declaration of next Current Branch for Business following the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (1607). In the event of any conflict between the terms of the Windows Desktop Operating System Product Entry and these preview terms, these preview terms prevail.
