Does VS Code for Education use student data for advertising?

No. Microsoft gives extra protection to student personal data:

  • We don’t sell student personal data.
  • We don’t use or share student personal data for advertising.
  • We gather information about a student only to support educational or school purposes, or as allowed by a parent or guardian.
  • We may share student personal data with other organizations working on our behalf for educational purposes. These organizations must agree to the same protections. See more about Student Data Protection.
