Please note the information on data processing. With OneDrive 1 TB is available to you. We recommend that you do not use OneDrive for storing data that you regard as worthy of protection, and that you rely instead on storage that is not regarded as being data protection compromised (e.g. Synch&Share, secure network of the ZIM).
