Microsoft menaced with GDPR mega-fines in Europe for 'large scale and covert' gathering of people's info via Office

Re: Abide by their rules or GTFO

1. 28% of the total global market, but guess what, neither MS, google, or FB derive 28% of their revenue from the EU. So they can afford to tell you where to stick it.

2. A fine of 4% of gross tips the scales to the point where it is cheaper not to have to worry about the risk of fines, so no more office for you

3. I wouldn't expect the EU to be 28% of the global marketplace for long when you idiot's cant create or send excel files
