Professional Secrecy Amendment to the Microsoft Cloud Agreement (Germany)
In Germany, the Criminal Code (Section 203) and the professional codes of conduct require that certain client relationships are to be kept confidential, for example, the relationship between patients and their medical doctors and the relationship between attorneys and their clients. These occupational groups have to ensure professional secrecy. For these and other professions to buy cloud-based services from cloud solution providers, the cloud service provider must conclude a written agreement with the customer that ensures professional secrecy.
If you do business in Germany, you may need to provide this professional secrecy amendment to your customers there in addition to the Microsoft Cloud Agreement.
