Big Cartel Privacy Policy Page Template

Privacy Policy

Page Template

Suitable for Any Theme


The Privacy Policy page is displayed in Aarcade Big Cartel theme previews as an example of a custom page.

This page uses standard HTML heading tags and inline styles to group the content of the page.

Because it uses standard HTML, it can be applied to any Big Cartel theme.

Special Notes

1. This page is offered for information only. It is your responsibility to ensure that your privacy policy correctly describes your privacy practices.

See installation instructions below.


Create a new custom page, as detailed in the support article How do I add a page to my Big Cartel shop?, and name it “Privacy Policy” or a relevant name of your choice.


Switch to HTML edit mode before proceeding – refer How do I switch to HTML edit mode?

Copy all of the code in the code box below and paste it into your new custom page content area.

Edit the content as required. As a minimum you will need to:

  • Review the policies and edit as required to ensure they correctly describe your privacy practices. To add new items, simply copy an item and then paste and edit as required.
  • Review the HTML to suit your requirements. Note:
    • Heading tags are used to create different sized titles. In this code, h1 has been used for the page title, h3 has been used for section titles and h5 for questions. You could, for example, change all h5 tags to h6 tags to make the question text smaller. You can also apply inline styles to control font size precisely.
    • Double returns between text lines automatically creates paragraphs, so there is no need to manually create p tags.
    • Inline styles have been used in the h3 section titles to add a bottom border and padding. These styles can be edited, expanded or removed as required – see examples after the code box below.
    • Big Cartel API has been used to automatically display your shop name. If your business name differs from your shop name, you will need to find and replace
      {{ }} with the correct name.
