Yesterday, I (allegedly) received an email from Microsoft. It comes from [email protected] and indicates that the service contract will be updated, with links you can click to read the contract and the FAQ page. When I search online for the MSA, it shows that the last update was 10/2020. Its update will take place on 15.06.2021. You can view your software licenses and cloud services through an MPSA in the Microsoft Business Center. To view software licenses through another Microsoft Volume Licensing Agreement, use the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC). Once your licenses and cloud services are fully covered by an MPSA, all your purchases through the MPSA can be viewed in a single tool. Contact your partner if you have any questions about your position as a General Licence Holder. Copyright and Trademark Notice.

The Microsoft Services Agreement is an agreement between you and Microsoft (or one of its affiliates) that governs your use of Microsoft consumer online products and services. A full list of covered products and services can be found here. Microsoft is updating its service agreement, the rules we call agree to live with them when they use Microsoft`s many services. We found some interesting things in the changes.

This Section and Sections 1, 9 (for amounts committed prior to the end of these Terms), 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 18 and those applicable after the expiration of the Terms shall survive any termination or termination of these Terms.

Except for Section 15 (Arbitration and Class Action Waiver), these Terms are for your and our benefit; They are not for the benefit of any other person, except for Microsoft`s successors and missions.
