 Microsoft refutes rumors of cut off supply for Chinese users, and similar rules already exist


The updated agreement will be implemented on October 1, 2020.

In response to this incident, Microsoft responded to China first finance on August 10, saying: recently, rumors about global updates of Microsofts terms of service by some individual social media are not in line with the facts. We are firmly committed to providing services to Chinese users.

First financial analysis found that this is not the first time Microsoft has mentioned relevant content in the terms of service. According to the official website of Microsoft in China, similar terms have been mentioned in the trial agreement of office products updated in June 2011.

According to the force majeure rules in others of the agreement, neither party shall be liable for the failure to provide services due to reasons beyond the reasonable control of either party. These causes include fire, explosion, power failure, earthquake, flood, storm, strike, embargo, labor dispute, acts of civil or military organizations, war, terrorist activities (including network terrorist activities), natural disasters, acts or omissions of Internet traffic operators, acts or omissions of regulatory or government agencies (including the adoption of laws or regulations, or affecting online service delivery) Other government actions).

This trial agreement shows that similar rules have existed in Microsoft Service Agreement before. In addition, Microsoft is phasing out the outdated windows system. In January this year, Microsoft officially stopped updating and maintaining the windows 7 system. After the service stops, Microsoft will no longer provide technical support, updates or modifications to Windows 7. Stopping the update service means that the computer on which the system is installed will be more vulnerable to malware and hackers. Microsofts official advice to users: for the sake of device security, especially for new devices, it is recommended to update it to windows 10. As for old devices, it is not recommended to install windows 10. Source: Chen Hequn, editor in charge of Finance and Economics_ NB12679
