Does Microsoft Office access your contacts?

When I was installing Excel the privacy notice stated that it could access my contacts as well as other information. Is this really the case, and is there a way to disable this?
Usually yes, Microsoft Office will try to access your contacts to give you the ability to send to people or to give you suggested contacts.
What OS are you on? If you're on a Mac for example you can go into System Preferences > Security and Privacy > Privacy. Select Contact and you can allow or block what apps have access to your contacts.
