One of our attorneys asked this question.  I'm sure the answer to this is "no", but I have been asked to ask.

@David Phillips Hello, I would say you're correct with a disclaimer that caption data is stored for ~30 minutes after a meeting and then permanently deleted.

@David Phillips 
It is a no from me but I am independent to Microsoft. So I would recommend raising a support case with Microsoft or an Account Manager if you have one in your organisation to get the official word.

 

I am no lawyer :) but it is worth mentioning that captioning and transcription when in the realms of Stream and the recorded video is not 100% accurate, so without knowing the want for this, I don't personally see how it could be used as any sort of reliable evidence. That is my presuming the reason though, so sorry in advance.

 

If you did want to at least ensure that things are recorded as a matter of course for compliance reasons I would recommend taking a look at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/teams-recording-policy

 

Thanks

@David Phillips No worries! It's not incorrect to ask a question and let others do the work ;)

@David Phillips Haha, most certainly!
