Part I. GENERAL TERMS
These General Terms apply to all Services, except where modified by the Service Specific Terms.

Unless Microsoft believes an immediate suspension is required, Microsoft will provide reasonable notice before suspending a Service.
Part II. SERVICE SPECIFIC TERMS
Any additional legal terms that apply to your use of a specific Service (the “Service Specific Terms”) are set forth in this Part II. If a particular Service is not listed in the Service Specific Terms, it does not have any Service Specific Terms.
