Default Frequency of merchant datafeed updates in factory?

Could you please give some general guidance on how often the merchant feeds are currently being updated in the factory including product prices?

A new advertising code for digital marketing (including affiliate promotions) has just been launched in the United Kingdom, which involves potential compliance issues with mis-information being given in any online marketing activity (whether this is deliberate or not).

I'd therefore like to update my terms of use to warn visitors on potential accuracy issues regarding product price comparison and changes etc.

As the default store updates are set to every 3 days I guess factory merchant product updates are no less frequent than this, but it would be good if you could confirm how often updates are currently being made so we can be transparent to users and give them an indication that price changes made within the last 24/48/72 hours may not yet be displayed.

I appreciate some merchants update their product feeds more regularly than others so pricing will obviously be different across the networks (and this will be included as a disclaimer) but at least as a site owner we can state prices are pulled from the latest merchant feed "every xx hours".

The main network I'd be concerned with on this issue is Affiliate Window.

Many thanks.
