we are updating the terms and privacy of your account - hotmail

Hi all. I logged on to Hotmail today only to be met by this message.

"we are updating the terms and privacy of your account"

I want to know what it contained but unfortunately clicked 'next' to go through to my email instead. Even live chat didn't know what it meant. If I have to opt out of anyone gaining access to my info or this is generic email everyone got, I want to know if it was relevant to me.

Probably a generic email, like the many emails regarding the change to cookie policies on some websites.

Strange that the chat-line agent didn't have information though, but its not been unknown before regarding being up to speed on situations like this.

Perhaps best to do an internet search,for more information, if you are all that concerned.
