The Microsoft Product Terms site launched on 1 July, 2020 with the aim of ultimately replacing the Product Terms and Online Services Terms documents.
The new site allows customers to filter content and review only the use rights and conditions relevant to their needs, to save a downloadable version of the use rights, to compare older use rights to the current ones, and to choose to use one of 35 different languages.
If you haven’t looked at this site yet, then it’s time to prioritise getting to grips with it since the existing Product Terms and Online Services Terms documents won’t be available after 1 February, 2021.

It’s Microsoft’s intention to take the content from the Product Terms and Online Services Terms documents and combine them into a single online resource.
If you want a sneak peek of what this will look like, then check out the new Product Terms site here: https://bit.ly/2ByfWq2.
The very useful table on the last page of the Online Services Terms document which shows you which components are included in which Office 365 and Microsoft 365 plans is updated for April 2020.
The main changes are for the revised Firstline Worker plans with Office 365 F1 renamed to Office 365 F3, Microsoft 365 F1 renamed to Microsoft 365 F3, and the new Microsoft 365 F1 added. OneDrive for Business Plans 1 and 2 are added while some other components are removed, including the now discontinued Azure Information Protection Plan 2.

Since the 1990s Microsoft have produced documents containing the licensing terms for their products. That’s all about to change… Today’s documents – the Product Terms and the Online Services Terms – are about to be combined into a Licensing Terms website.
This site is currently in beta and you can try it out here: http://bit.ly/2W2vj38. The associated FAQ (http://bit.ly/2HVsabn) tells us that the site will be live on 1st June, 2019 and the current documents will also be available until further notice. A new site for storing other licensing documents is also in beta and you can try that out here: http://bit.ly/2ExqKD4.
Starting in August 2015, the Online Services Terms (OST) document will be updated monthly.
