That additionally appears to be true of Apple and Google as well, which means that schools can not use iCloud or Google Docs either. "This content hasn't been clarified despite repeated inquiries, and such content is also transmitted when using Office 365", the watchdog says.

The Hesse Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (HBDI) stated that, by using the cloud platform's standard configuration the students and teachers are leaving their personal information unprotected and at risk to be potentially accessed by the U.S authorities. The cloud solutions of these providers have so far not been transparent and comprehensible set out. However when it comes to use in schools, German law says that minors can not provide such consent.

"When Office 365 is connected to a work or school account, administrators have a range of options to limit features that are enabled by sending data to Microsoft".

It will be interesting to see how Microsoft handles the issue, because as long as the impasse continues, the schools caught up in the crossfire will not be able to use either of the aforementioned software, but instead, will have to make do with "other tools such as on-premise licenses on local systems", which likely includes Office 2016 and the decade-old Windows 7.

In addition to the physical geography of the cloud, the HBDI is unhappy about telemetry in both Office 365 and Windows 10 itself. "Schools can use digital applications in compliance with data protection, [as long] as the security of the data processing and the participation of the pupils is guaranteed".

A spokesperson for Microsoft was quoted by the website ZDNet as saying that the company is "thankful" that the Hesse commissioner had raised the problems and that Microsoft looks forward to cooperating with Hesse officials "to better understand their concerns". In our service terms we document the steps we take to protect customer data, and we've even successfully sued the USA government over access to customer data in Europe.

Last year, Dutch investigators revealed that data sent by Microsoft back to the U.S. could comprise standard software diagnostics and user content from inside applications, including sentences from documents and email subject lines.

Microsoft decided previous year to stop offering this option.
