“The United Kingdom (UK) has signed an agreement and is leaving the European Union (EU) on Jan 31st. At that time, the UK Data Protection Act of 2018 (link: https://www.gov.uk/data-protection) will govern the collection, use, and sharing of the personal information of UK residents. This act is essentially a replica of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) but allows UK citizens to complain to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office rather than the Data Protection Authorities of other European Union nations. Because you have a GDPR Privacy Policy in place, we have automatically updated your policy to reflect this change. Please note we are keeping a very close eye on the developments of the United Kingdom’s exit from the EU and how they impact the flow of personal information between the European Union and United Kingtom. We will notify you if we need to update your Privacy Policy again as the events unfold and more guidance is provided by the Data Protection Authorities and the Information Commissioner’s Office. No further action is needed. Please let us know if you have any questions.” Hans Skillrud, Cofounder,   Termageddon LLC (communication received over the email regarding our polices maintained on Termageddon dated January 30, 2020).
