    from the article:

    “We will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to”, for example, “protect their customers” or “enforce the terms governing
    the use of the services”.


    Does this not concern all of you?

    Is it really all that different than most other privacy policies? If privacy is a strong concern, you might want to compare it to Apple -- there's isn't as much a cause for concern...

    Personally, about the only thing I left on during the install process was location services. Cortana phones-home too much, so I shut that off too. With the OS becoming a 'service', things are changing -- with so much intertwined with the OS, the OS is becoming much more front & center than it used to be.
