    accordingly or according to which?

    The GDPR strengthens and clarifies the rights of EU-resident natural persons with regard to their personal information The Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy for Valossa services have been updated accordingly. source The writing in the pop-up.

    Is the underlined part relative clause or a seperate sentence? Instead of 'accordingly', wouldn't 'acording to which' be better?

    Re: accordingly or according to which?

    No. "According to which" can't possibly end a sentence. "Accordingly" means "in the appropriate way".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    A period ("full stop" in British English) is missing after "information". Insert it to make the paragraph clearer.
