The changes of Policies the WhatsApp messaging platform will share users data with Parent Facebook company and other third-party apps.
Oddly enough, if users refuse to share data with Facebook, they will have to log out of WhatsApp permanently.

This means that users have to accept these until February 8, 2021 to continue using WhatsApp.
‘Respect for your privacy is coded into our DNA. Since we started WhatsApp, we’ve aspired to build our Services with a set of strong privacy principles in mind.’ were the lines written in WhatsApp’s private policy
These lines are not part of the policy.
However, WhatsApp stays end-to-end encrypted. Which means it can’t see your messages or share them with anyone.
Why these changes are important for WhatsApp owned company Facebook:

After the Changes, WhatsApp will now collect your:
Phone model, OS, Battery status (yes!), Signal strength, Time zone, IP Address, WhatsApp usage, Payments and transactions, Status updates, Group details, Profile pictures, and About info.
