0. Privacy Policy of Kaffee La Finca UG 

Kaffee La Finca operates the www.kaffeelafinca.de website.

This page is used to inform website visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information if anyone decided to reach www.kaffeelafinca.de (named as Service, Kaffee La Finca, we or us after that).

If you choose to use our Service, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation with this policy. The Personal Information that we collect are used for providing and improving the Service. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

Data processing by Kaffee La Finca can essentially be divided into two categories:

  • Data related to Cookies and Tracking : When you access our websites, various information is exchanged between your device and our server or the server of the services we use. This may also involve personal data. The information collected in this way is used, inter alia, to further optimise our websites.
