General Data Protection Regulation

Under GDPR entities either control data, process data, or do a mixture of both. Visual Studio App Center serves primarily as a data processor and its customers as data controllers. In some limited cases, App Center serves as a data controller with regard to its customers. Put simply, we collect customer data and data from your application end-users on your behalf. As such we provide you with two experiences: one where you are the data subject and one where you must accommodate your app end-users as data subjects.

In the sections listed under this one you will find instruction on how to manage your personal data and that of your customers.


This article provides steps for how to delete personal data from the device or service and can be used to support your obligations under the GDPR. If you’re looking for general information about GDPR, see the GDPR section of the Service Trust portal.
