Learn about Office 365 Germany

Office 365 Germany is a differentiated option to the Office 365 services already available across Europe. It helps address the needs of the most regulated customers in Germany, the European Union (EU), and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) by delivering our industry-leading productivity services for digital work, from German datacenters, with data residency in Germany, and strict data access and control measures via a unique data trustee model governed under German law.

The data trustee, T-Systems International, an independent German company and subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, controls physical and logical access to customer data. Customer data cannot be accessed without approval from or supervision by the data trustee, which is governed by German law.

1Office 365 Germany plans include client software applications that are installed and run on an end-user’s device (“client software applications”), such as Office 365 ProPlus, Office 2013, and Office 2016. Client software applications do not operate exclusively in German data centers and may enable an end-user to access online services that are not German Online Services. For purposes of your agreement with Microsoft, client software applications are not German Online Services. German data residency commitments and access control by German data trustee apply only to the German Online Services.
