Hans Skillrud

Vice President

Hans is the Vice President of Termageddon, overseeing sales & marketing. Hans ran a 12-person web design agency in downtown Chicago for 7 years, and sold it in March of 2019 to focus all of his attention on Termageddon. In his free-time, Hans enjoys history, philosophy, reading, and drinking whiskey with friends. He also enjoys bee keeping, hunting for morel mushrooms and walks with his fiancée and two dogs… yes we are engaged!

Why did you build Termageddon?

Donata was bored of the monotony of writing Privacy Policy after Privacy Policy. Hans was tired of Privacy Policies holding him back from launching websites for his clients on time. The idea came out over dinner when we were both sharing our frustrations with Privacy Policies!

When did you launch Termageddon?

We developed Termageddon in 2017, even before GDPR went into effect! And since that time, Termageddon has generated thousands upon thousands of policies for website owners.

Why did you name it ‘Termageddon’?

Well, it was either that or Terminator, and Terminator.com was already taken!  In all seriousness, we know that data privacy can be an intimidating topic, and we wanted to use a brand that made us as approachable as possible. We think light-hearted jokes can break the ice and get the conversation going!

What are you most proud of?

We are proud to have Termageddon listed as the only Privacy Policy generator vendor by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (iapp.org – the largest privacy organization in the world). We also love hearing from our clients that we provide the best online support they’ve ever received!

Do you speak at events on privacy law?
