I went looking for people to disable it on IRC this evening (only
waited that long because I was AFK a lot recently) and the person that
actually looked into it (happened to be a global sysop) so far was not
comfortable doing this because there are "lots of local admins there".
I'm not sure if there's a policy on whether or not to wait for locals
when reverting a privacy policy violation (if you would have waited
for less urgent changes) but just in case I commented in a few local
places anyway.

btw, another issue to address is the footer's "Privacy policy" link on
that site leads to a local redlink.

I guess we'll get legal to do this themselves when they get in
tomorrow morning if no one else does before then.
