On August 9, 2022, we posted an updated Terms of Service. The updates go into effect for all new customers signing up for Fastly Services on or after August 9, 2022.

We also updated our Data Processing Terms to address the new set of data transfer agreements issued by the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office for data transfers out of the United Kingdom.

All new customers entering into agreements with Fastly that incorporate the Data Processing Terms on or after August 8, 2022 benefit from the new terms immediately.

All Fastly customers with existing agreements or orders that incorporate the Data Processing Terms will benefit from the new terms automatically beginning in 30 days. In the event a customer with an existing agreement wishes to benefit from the new Data Processing Terms immediately, Fastly agrees to be bound by those terms without any further action required by the customer.

Special Service Guide Update for April 7, 2022

Thursday, April 7 2022 -

On May 31, 2022, a third-party provider of one of Fastly's geolocation databases will be deprecating support of their legacy geolocation information. Fastly will no longer support the associated geoip.* VCL variables as of May 27, 2022 and will begin requiring all affected Fastly customers to replace the legacy geolocation VCL variables promptly.

Fastly provides client.geo.* variables with comparable functionality that rely on another database that will remain available to all Fastly customers. A list of the affected variables and their supported alternatives can be found on our Developer Hub. Current customers should ensure they are using the alternative geolocation VCL variables detailed on the Developer Hub.
