EU Upset by Microsoft Warning About US Access to EU Cloud

Source: PCWorld

Microsoft admitted that it may have to hand over European customers' data on a new cloud service to U.S. authorities. The company may also be compelled by the Patriot Act to keep details of any such data transfer secret. This is directly contrary to the European directive, which states that organizations must inform users when they disclose personal information.
