FAQs


A privacy policy is a legal document that discloses some or all of the ways a business gathers, uses, discloses, and manages a customer's data. Its purpose is to inform website visitors exactly which personal information is gathered by your site or mobile app, how it is used, and how it is protected.


The policy generator is a free tool Shopify offers to businesses. That means there is no cost to use it. We currently offer the following policy generators:

  • - Privacy policy
  • - Refund policy
  • - Terms of service policy

If you collect personal information from your website visitors, you are required by law to have a privacy policy posted to your website (and your mobile app, if you have one). If a dispute arises about the way your business used someone’s information, a privacy policy may provide some liability insurance.

Aside from the legal requirements, a privacy policy can be an important part of fostering trust and transparency between you and your customers.


Shopify’s free privacy policy generator tool was developed and reviewed by legal experts. It includes the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to help make sure your business complies with the law and builds customer trust. The tool itself is easy to use, to get started:
