Hi @TamGen 

In regards to selling data for anyone, the laws surrounding those topics change and vary between country, the type of data, how you are collecting permission and definitely age as well. 

This is a highly sensitive and nuanced topic that doesn't have a clear cut answer. I would recommend reviewing our legal policies (Shopify Legaland consider hiring a lawyer to assist you in understanding how these policies apply to you and the data you are interested in selling. 

Depending on the country you are located in, has a great article to help you learn more about this topic: Minors Privacy Policy

I'd love to learn more about your business. What kind of store are you planning on creating and what kind of data were you considering to sell?
