I am working one of the European Customer to Host there services in Azure. However, the customer has come back with a question from Compliance and data protection perspective.

a. Have we initiated a dialogue with the MS Azure regarding how they shall handle a request from a U.S authority if they request for customer data for European customer

b. Depending on what personal data and the amount of personal data, has the risk for the individual been assessed if the data were disclosed to the US authorities by customer?
