Questions regarding data transfers outside M365 environment

Hi Adobe community, 


I had a few questions regarding where data is sent for a few of Adobe Acrobats version. These versions are: 

a) Adobe Acrobat for Microsoft Edge Browser, with M365 SSO setup. 

b) Adobe Acrobat for Teams. 

Purpose: We would like the ability to leave comments within PDF documents & to be able to edit documents that belong in SharePoint/OneDrive without information exiting our environment. 

Issue: Certain functions and scenarios involving the combination of M365 & Adobe Acrobat sends data to Adobes servers, including servers offshore. 


1. If we open PDF's that reside within SharePoint/OneDrive through Adobe Acrobat for Edge Browser plugin, signed in via a M365 account using SSO and:
   a) Edit PDF's & Save them back into SharePoint/OneDrive
   b) Leave comments against sections of a PDF
will at any point the document be sent to outside our M365 tenant or the local device? 

2.  If we open documents from within SharePoint using the Adobe Acrobat for MS Teams addon, what specific functions (because I know they exist) will cause data to be sent externally from our SharePoint/OneDrive environment? Is editing or commenting apart of this? 

3.  Will using adobe acrobat workflows for M365 result in any information leaivng our environment? 

4. With situations that data is sent outside the environment to Adobe Cloud/Services, is the document, metadata or anything else saved anywhere in the Adobe Cloud that is not controlled by the tenant owner. 

Thanks in advance.
