Data Processing Agreement DPA for Shopify app?

I develop a bunch of (public) Shopify apps. Recently, a user has asked me for a signed Data Processing Agreement DPA. A few months ago when I did my research regarding the GDPR, I found no information about such an agreement.

Is this something that I am obliged to provide?

I am also curious about this.  Wondering if Shopify has a template we can use for this.

I'm very sure that you need to have a DPA with every app if you use Shopify. (don't take my personal opinion as fact!!!)

Developers like yourself, should integrate it into their Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. 

As a merchant, I am really struggling with this topic right now, and even after talking to the Shopify Support Team I don't have a clear picture on the topic, which is why I need to talk to every App's support team now, just to doublecheck. As a merchant, it's my responsibility. You would really make our lifes easier if you integrate an agreement into your business terms and provide us with the information that we already have a DPA with you. 

Would be awesome to get a definitive answer from some of the Gurus or Support Team. 

Best of luck, Raph
