Data protection information of the University of Applied Sciences for Health Professions Upper Austria for the Use of Microsoft Office 365

When using software packages such as Microsoft 365 or corresponding cloud solutions of Microsoft Corporation, Redmond, WA, USA, ("Microsoft"), personal or personally identifiable data may arise at various levels.

ATTENTION: Within the scope of this service, data transfer to the U.S. takes place or cannot be excluded. We would like to point out that as of July 10, 2023, the European Commission has issued an adequacy decision pursuant to Art 45 paragraph 1 GDPR on the EU-US data privacy framework (Data Privacy Framework). Accordingly, organizations or companies (as data importers) in the U.S. that are registered in a public list under the self-certification option of the Data Privacy Framework provide an adequate level of protection for data transfers. Whether the specific provider of this service is already certified can be found here:

We have concluded a data processing agreement with Microsoft. For the processing of data in the USA, the level of protection is guaranteed by the use of the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

Microsoft differentiates in this context between "Customer Data" as all data, including all text, sound, video or image files and software, provided to Microsoft by or on behalf of Customer through use, "Diagnostic Data" that Microsoft collects or receives from software installed locally by Customer in connection with the Online Service (sometimes referred to as Telemetry Data) and "Service Generated Data" that Microsoft generates in the course of operating an Online Service.

The processing of your data is based on your consent pursuant to Art 6 paragraph 1 lit a of the GDPR and the legitimate interest within the meaning of Art 6 parapraph 1 lit f GDPR in conjunction with Art 45 paragraph 1 lit a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.
