Have you ever curled up under the covers on a rainy day with a good service agreement as your choice of entertainment? I haven’t either, but Microsoft is making some changes and updates to its Microsoft Services Agreement and for the next month you may want to familiarize yourself with the new terms before they become permanent fixtures in your life as of May 1, 2018.

A quick FAQ posted to the Microsoft blog regarding Service Agreements covers some of the items users will need to know about their products going forward, such as which services are and are not covered by the newly adjusted Services Agreement. Another handful of Service Agreement topics are covered including what changes are actually being made, how are parents of children with access to Microsoft services being held accountable, and how users can go about accepting the new terms for their respective services.

Despite many of the adjustments being run-of-the-mill semantic tweaks, we suggest every user of Microsoft products or service take a look at the updated terms located here for their own piece of mind.
