Gordon Kelly took issue with that, citing this clause in the Privacy Statement: “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.
All Microsoft are doing is reaffirming what the paranoid US security forces (read NSA CIA FBI) has already imposed via the backdoor on ALL internet companies and computer giants such as Google/Apple/Microsoft/Facebook and Twitter and others. Refusal to disclose this information when requested or to collect it would bring real reprisals against these companies. This is not a fault of MS alone, they are just more open about it.
And who could ever prove that we live in a free world, or country, or even house?
