This page is a supplement to the Privacy Statement for Microsoft Lync Products. In order to understand the data collection and use practices relevant for a particular Microsoft Lync product or service, you should read both the Privacy statement for Microsoft Lync products and this supplement.
This privacy supplement addresses the deployment and use of Microsoft Lync 2010 for Nokia on your enterprise’s mobile devices. If you are using Microsoft Lync Server 2010 communications software as a service (in other words, if a third party [for example, Microsoft] is hosting the servers upon which the software runs), information will be transmitted to that third party. To learn more about the use of data that is transmitted from your enterprise to that third party, consult your enterprise administrator or your service provider.
What This Feature Does: During initial setup and configuration of Lync 2010 for Nokia, certain hardware-specific and software-specific data is collected and sent to Nokia for the purpose of reporting successful configuration.
Information Collected, Processed, or Transmitted: No personally identifiable information is collected during this process. No information is sent to Microsoft.
