“Though the investigation is still ongoing, preliminary results reveal serious concerns over the compliance of the relevant contractual terms with data protection rules and the role of Microsoft as a processor for EU institutions using its products and services,” the EDPS says in a statement.

The EDPS had launched an investigation on April 2019 into the use of Microsoft products and services by EU institutions.
