If you choose to personalize your experience using a third-party login like Google or Facebook, your account will be activated automatically, and you may receive certain transactional emails. You can unsubscribe from these communications at any time via email. To manage data received by Kocomo through third-party login types, please refer to your account with that service.

In such cases, we ensure compliance with relevant data protection regulations.
