    Anyone else log into their Linode manager only to be greeted with very long policy changes and privacy policy for GDPR I believe ?

    A bit too harsh IMHO. May move our servers away from Linode.
    If you don't accept it, you even can no longer access your servers and account management.

    Also cannot live with a 3 day termination notice.

    Yeah that's one way of ensuring everyone reads the updates though not sure everyone would of read it in it's entirety as it was very very long !

    3 days seems short but just checked DigitalOceans' terms, termination is immediate without notice so 3 days notice at Linode does seem more generous
