Overview of settings

Shopware offers you an overview of all possible configurations on this topic in the basic settings under Additional settings > Privacy. In the course of this article, we will explain in detail what the individual settings do.

Privacy Notice

Data protection information will be shown

All areas in which you submit personal data to Shopware via a form (e.g. registration, contact form, ..) can optionally be enhanced by a privacy notice.

If you want to change the snippet, you can edit the following text snippet: PrivacyText 

Data protection incl. checkbox

In addition to a simple text with notice, you can also optionally confirm this with a checkbox. This setting only works if the previous option was activated! Also the "Data protection information will be shown" option has to be activated to use this setting.

Deactivate AGB terms checkbox on checkout page

If you don't change this configuration, a checkbox will normally be displayed in the checkout, which the customer must actively confirm before purchasing your products. If you want this checkbox to be hidden, you can activate this option.

Check extended fields in newsletter registration

In order to enable a personal address in the newsletter, you can optionally request further information from the customer for registrations without a customer account.


Shopware stores all opt-in registrations in the table s_core_optin, this data is automatically cleaned up by the Cronjob Opt-In table Cleanup.

Newsletter Subscriptions

With this option you can activate the double opt-in for newsletter subscriptions. If you want to edit the opt-in e-mail, you will find it as sOPTINNEWSLETTER in the e-mail templates > System e-mails.

Comments & Customer Reviews

If you optinally want to activate the opt-in for blog comments and article reviews, you can use this setting. The e-mail template in this case is called sOPTINBLOGCOMMENT and sOPTINVOTE.


In some cases it is necessary that a customer in your shop explicitly confirms his e-mail address. If you want this, you can activate this option, you can customize this email in the template sOPTINREGISTER.

Quick Orderer

There is also a separate e-mail template for this which you can find in the e-mail templates under the name sOPTINREGISTERACCOUNTLESS. This setting can only be enabled if the Double-Opt-In for Registration option was previously enabled.

Days Without Confirmation Until Deletion

Of course it happens that an opt-in is requested, but the link is never accessed/confirmed. To clean up this data, you can define here after which period of time the entries will be deleted. This applies to all opt-in entries in general. As described above, the Cronjob Opt-In table Cleanup is responsible for this.

Send Confirmation Email After Registration

In order not to contact your customers unnecessarily with e-mails, you can use this option to prevent the sending of the e-mail sREGISTERCONFIRMATION


Shopware offers the possibility - like all other common sites - to display a cookie hint in the frontend. All these settings refer explicitly to this cookie hint.

In order for a link to your data protection conditions to be displayed in the cookie hint itself, you must enter the link to your data protection declaration here. The link to the privacy statement may differ per subshop. Via the shop tabs, you can store the correct link for the individual shops here.

Show Hint

If you enable this option, the cookie hint will be displayed at the bottom of the screen. The customer can hide the message by clicking the Agree button.

Notice Mode

Here you can choose whether a simple note on the use of cookies is sufficient (opt-out) or whether cookies are only set after explicit confirmation (opt-in).

  • Show hint only
  • Allow technically necessary cookies
  • Do not set any cookies until you have permission

Depending on the mode, the functions of the shop are limited, as the necessary cookies cannot be set. 

Delete Accountless Customers Without Orders

With this option you can define after how many months a quick order without orders will be deleted via Cronjob Delete non-activated users.

Delete Canceled Orders

With the Cronjob Cancelled baskets cleanup you can have canceled orders deleted regularly.

Anonymize Customer IPs

If you don't want to capture the IPs of your customers, you can enable this option. The last range of the IP address will then be anonymized automatically.
