How to integrate iubenda’s Privacy Policy on Shopify

If you run a Shopify store, you need to create a Privacy (and Cookie) Policy to let your customers know how you use their personal information.

Once you’ve generated your Privacy Policy with iubenda, you have three ways to integrate it on your Shopify website. You can either:

Widget

Access your iubenda dashboard, click on [Your website] > Privacy and Cookie Policy > Embed and copy the code under the Add a widget to the footer tab.

Access your Shopify store’s admin panel and go to Online Store > Themes. Once there, click on Actions on the right, then Edit Code as pictured:

This will redirect you to the page that allows you to modify your theme files: look under Sections and click on footer.liquid

Shopify footer.liquid

Look for the closing </footer> tag and paste your privacy policy embed code anywhere before it.

In the example pictured above, we’ve placed the code between the <div><small></small></div> tags to create a new line. When copying the privacy policy’s embed code, we’ve also chosen the “No style” option to get a text link instead of the default button.

Next, click Save at the top right, check your store to make sure that you like the placement of the link and adjust if needed. And that’s it, you’ve now integrated your iubenda privacy policy with your Shopify site!

Direct text embedding

The direct text embedding option makes your privacy policy look as if it were natively a part of your own site. Access your iubenda dashboard, click on [Your website] > Privacy and Cookie Policy > Embed and copy the code under the Embed the text in the body tab.

Terms and Conditions for eCommerce (and how they protect your business)

Terms and Conditions (also called ToS – Terms of Service, Terms of Use or EULA – End User License Agreement) set the way in which your product, service or content may be used, in a legally binding way. Not only are crucial for protecting you from potential liabilities, but – especially in cases of eCommerce stores – they often contain legally mandated information such as users’ rights, withdrawal or cancellation disclosures.

A valid Terms and Conditions document is generally required whenever complex issues are at stake, such as in the case of eCommerce, where sensitive information such as payment data is processed. In these cases, the Terms and Conditions typically contains legal information related to conditions of sale and disclosures on methods of payment, shipping, delivery, withdrawals, and cancellation conditions etc. – as commonly required by consumer protection regulations.
