You can update your Privacy Policy by first logging into your Shopify account.

  1. Select Settings in the bottom-left corner of your Shopify dashboard.
  2. Select Policies at the bottom of the side menu.

  4. Select Create a template and edit every bracketed section accordingly.
  5. Select Save in the top-right corner to save your changes.

Privacy Policy Language

We’ve drafted language regarding SMS marketing that should be added to your Privacy Policy. View this language here, or in the passage below.

To be compliant with carrier regulation, please ensure the yellow highlighted area is included in your Privacy Policy. The rest is encouraged.


When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address, and email address.

When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

Email marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products, and other updates.

Text marketing (if applicable): With your permission, we may send text messages about our store, new products, and other updates. Updates include Checkout Reminders. Webhooks will be used to trigger the Checkout Reminders messaging system.

Once you have updated your Privacy Policy, you can add the link to the footer menu (or bottom menu) of your store.

  2. From the menus listed, select Footer menu.
