    Dear Member, AOL FINAL WARNING

    We emailed you last month to let you know about changes we are making to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. These changes are key steps towards creating what's next for our consumers, like you, while empowering them with transparency and controls over how and when their data is used.

    You can learn more about Oath and what these policies mean for you here, as well as more about the changes in our FAQs.

    In order to continue to access your AOL Mail account after August 31 2018, you will need to confirm you accept the Terms of Service. We also need a few moments of your time to explain how we manage your data and provide you with some choices in relation to the processing of that data.

    Click here to start.

    If you do not want the new Terms of Service and Privacy Policy to apply to you, you will no longer be able to access your account from Sept 18 2018. If you would like the contents of your email account, you may obtain a copy of your data by clicking here.

    Thank you for your time and cooperation.

    Oath"
