Law Enforcement Requests Report
Data Glossary of Terms
Total Number of Requests The number of criminal requests received from a law enforcement agency and/or court seeking customer data. Examples of the types of requests include a subpoena, a court order, and a warrant. Accounts/Users Specified The total number of usernames, accounts, or other identifiers that were specified in the requests received. One law enforcement request could include the names of multiple users, and/or could include multiple accounts associated with a single user. For example one user could have multiple accounts – such as an Outlook.com E-mail account, an Xbox Gamertag, a Microsoft Account ID, or an Xbox serial number. Requests Resulting in Disclosure of Content The number of court orders Microsoft found to be lawful, and therefore disclosed at least some customer content. Such content could include the subject or body of an email, photos stored in SkyDrive, address book information, and calendars. In most cases, a court order that requires the disclosure of customer content will also require the disclosure of non-content information (see definition below). Requests Resulting in Disclosure of Only Subscriber/Transactional (Non-Content) Data The number of law enforcement requests determined to be lawful, and therefore only non-content information was disclosed. Non-content information could include the user’s name, billing address, IP history, etc. Requests Resulting in Disclosure of No Customer Data (Request Rejected for Not Meeting Legal Requirements) The number of law enforcement requests and/or court orders Microsoft rejected because we determined they failed to satisfy the relevant legal requirements. As a result, no data of any kind was disclosed. Requests Resulting in Disclosure of No Customer Data (No Data Found) The number of law enforcement requests and/or court orders where the Microsoft Compliance Team found no data in our systems related to the request and/or order, and therefore disclosed no customer information to law enforcement. Percentage All percentages are calculated by dividing the associated column by the Total Number of Requests. Accounts Specified in Requests Where Compliance Team Found No Data The number of times the Skype compliance team searched for a username or other identifier (e.g., PSTN number) specified in a valid law enforcement request but found no data. Provided Guidance to Law Enforcement The number of times the Skype compliance team provided general guidance to a domestic or foreign law enforcement agency, either in response to a rejected request or general questions, about the process for obtaining Skype user data.
