Hi,

 

can someone please tell me how to create a "privacy policy" link and a "terms & conditions" link to place at the bottom of the homepage please? I have been struggling for a while! 

I create a page but somehow cannot place a link to that page in the footer...

 

thanks so much for your help!

Shopify offers free tools to create your Terms & Conditions and/or Privacy Policy agreements.

https://www.shopify.com/tools/policy-generator/terms-and-conditions

Additionally, if you need more clauses and sections to your Terms & Conditions and/or Privacy Policy you can also generate your these agreements with TermsFeed (full disclosure: we develop similar tools for ecommerce stores over there).

If you'd like to add the links to your agreements in the footer section:

Go to Admin > Online Store > Navigation.

If you're not able to add the links through the Navigation page, then you can edit the theme file to add the links:

Go to Admin > Online Store > Choose your Theme > search for theme.liquid and then search for "Footer".

Once the "footer" file is opened, you can add the links in HTML format:

<a href="LINK_TO_YOUR_PAGE">Terms & Conditions</a>

<a href="LINK_TO_YOUR_PAGE">Privacy Policy</a>

Replace "LINK_TO_YOUR_PAGE" with the links to your agreements.

Hi, Anissa!

I’m Melissa, a Shopify Guru. Yes you can generate these policies quite quickly by going to Settings > Checkout in your admin:

 

Once generated they can be edited and then be added to your footer menu using the Navigation section in the admin by going to Online Store > Navigation and then:

 

That will link it all together for you so it is displayed in your footer menu. Hope this information helps! You can reach out to the Guru team https://help.shopify.com/questions if you have any questions.

Have a great day!

Hi, Anissa.

Yes, apologies, I should have clarified a little more on this. Once they have been generated in that area, what you can then do is go to Online Store > Pages. In that section, you can created a new page and call it "Privacy Policy' and then copy the generated policy and paste it into this page. Once that page has then been saved you can go back to Online Store > Navigation and link in the footer menu there.

Hope this information helps! You can reach out to the Guru team https://help.shopify.com/questions if you have any questions.

Have a great day!

You dont have to create custom pages anymore for this information to be displayed. Just enter it into Settings > Legal and then it will show in a navigation menu option (online store > Navigation)  when you add a link under "Policies".

Where should the HTML code be placed within Footer.liquid if I want the links to be right at the bottom of the footer? How should I modify that code if I want the links centered in the footer? See attached snippet of my site's footer.
