Copilot for M365 & Microsoft Copilot Data residency and processing difference

Copper Contributor

Hello experts,

 

I'm looking for information regarding differences between data residency for Copilot for 365 and Microsofot Copilot in protected mode.

 

As far as i understand Copilot for M365 is respecting data residency (in my case switzerland) which means if i'm correct that all queries and processing will be done in my region. : https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365-copilot/microsoft-365-copilot-privacy#microsoft-copi... 

 

But  
Microsoft Copilot (bing.com/chat) in protected mode (<=> identified) is a general service. 

My request won't feed LLM service but the request itself may be operated outside of my data residency / EU data boundaries / in the US.

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/copilot/privacy-and-protections#microsoft-as-the-data-controller

 

Is that correct ? 

 

Does this means that when i have dungle in "work mode" i'm in data residency mode and when i'm in "web mode" i'll be outside of my region ?

 

I'm a bit surprise by this ;) 

 

Thanks a lot for your feedback
