Microsoft has announced it will extend the rights available to Europeans under the EU’s new privacy regulation to all consumers across the world. The General Data Protection Regulation went into effect Friday May 22, introducing a range of new Data Subject Rights for EU residents, such as the right to obtain data a company has collected, and to request the deletion of data if the user no longer consents to a company holding it.┬áConsumers also have the right to take data to another service provider, and to know how a company is processing their data.┬áRather than enabling these rights only for European consumers, Microsoft will provide them to all consumers.
