Microsoft to Buy Nokia’s Device and Services Business
In a joint email, Nokia’s VP and Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer, Chad Fentress and Microsoft’s Chief Privacy Officer, Brendon Lynch, stated that when the transaction is complete, a new Microsoft-Finnish affiliate will take responsibility for the phone maker’s clients’ “personal data and contractual relationships for products and services related to the business.”
They also assured clients that the software giant “cares deeply” about their client’s privacy protection of personal data and would continue to collect and use personal data the same way Nokia has resulting in an experience that is no different despite the sale.
Once sales have completed, Nokia Devices and Services business will become part of Microsoft Mobile Oy, a Finnish subsidiary of Microsoft.
It is also unclear if Nokia will change its name.
