The protection of your privacy and the careful handling of your personal data is very important to us. This is why data protection is of great importance to Kootkeet. In the collection, processing and use of personal data, Kootkeet strictly adheres to the legal provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act.


Collection, processing and use of personal data

We process and use personal data (name, address, date of birth, telephone number, e-mail address) to process your orders, including delivery and payment as well as to provide other services you use. For this purpose, we may forward the necessary data to specialized service providers such as delivery companies, IT service providers, and call centers and payment service providers. The e-mail address and the telephone number are only used for communication within the scope of the order processing (order and shipping confirmation, queries, delivery notification). The use of the telephone number and the e-mail address for advertising purposes (for example for the newsletter) will only be carried out with your expressed and at any time revocable consent. In the case of a complaint to be processed by the carrier, we forward the correspondence and the data (name, first name, address, e-mail address) to the carrier by letter or via unencrypted mail only with your consent.


Newsletter

By subscribing to our newsletter, you will be regularly informed about the latest offers, promotions, coupon campaigns and partner offers. The e-mail address will not be passed on to third parties, but will only be used for the sending of our own newsletters. For statistical purposes, we evaluate in an anonymous form which links were clicked in the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time via the website or by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the end of each newsletter.


Revocation of consent

If you receive a newsletter, you have expressly given the following consent: "Yes, I would like to receive the Kootkeet newsletter from Nadja Shashe & Adugna Chalchessa Wayessa GbR - 'Kootkeet' with offers and partner offers. If I do not want to use the newsletter service any more, I can always unsubscribe from the newsletter via the sign-off link at then of each newsletter-email."


Data Security wit your Payments

In order to ensure secure transmission of all payment and customer data, all data is secured by a 256-bit SSL certificate - the same standard also used by banks. The abbreviation "SSL" means "Secure Socket Layer" and is an encryption method that is used successfully throughout the World Wide Web. That means, all data is encrypted and thus secure for transmission via the Internet. You will recognize that this process takes place when seeing a symbol (closed padlock) in the window bar of your browser. If your PC can not process SSL - in rare cases this can happen - you do not need to worry about your data being sent in unencrypted form. As a rule, you will get an error page that will alert you to the problem.


Rights of information and contact for data protection
