I think Germany is pretty admirable for banning Microsoft Office 365 from their schools... but what about Google Docs?
Same spying, same data mining, same US based servers.
In situations like this, Free Software is always the way forward. Start adopting #LibreOffice or other FOSS alternatives.

"Smart" and networked proprietary devices should be very much called what they are: dystopian junk.
If you want a less polemic term, use "automated surveillance devices," but really all of these TVs, home assistants, toasters, fridges, smoke detectors, etc. are dystopian junk.
We need "low tech" appliances, and we need personal computing devices that are, by design, fully controllable by the people using them.
Pro tip: if something is actively marketed to you (you see it advertised somewhere) that should be interpreted as follows:
a) I almost certainly don't need that thing.
b) if you want that thing, it indicates that there's almost certainly a better one at a lower price that's not being marketed (because marketing costs money) so have a bit of a look around before gratifying the marketers.
