Request for information on the MS Cloud Office decision
Hello, I'm a lawyer at a Poland-based digital rights NGO Panoptykon Foundation which is a memeber of the European Digital Rights Initiative. Our mission is to protect freedom and privacy in the context of new technologies.
I am writing to inquire about the announcement of the Hessian Data Protection Authority that Microsoft Office 365 used in German schools raises serious privacy concerns. My question is: has there been a formal decision or a legal opinion in the case? If so, I would like to request this document.
The reason why I am asking is that Polish schools use Microsoft 365 by default. We would like to use the information gathered and legal analysis performed by the Hessian Data Protection Auhority, and send a letter to the Polish Data Protection Authority with a request to start an investigation in Poland, as well as to the Ministry of Education.
I also would like to apologise for sending this e-mail in English. I hope that nevertheless it will be possible for you to share the decision with us. If a translation of my e-mail is needed, please let me know.
Please let me know in case you have any questions or concerns.
