Hello, here in Germany, where  data privacy is a huge issue, our attorneys have suggested that we want to put any and all tracking software used by Shopify in our Datenschutzerklärung.  Can someone help me with this?

The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device.
