Cookie Policy uses cookies. The information presented herein below is intended to offer users details on the placement, use and management of cookies used by the web site.

This site uses this type of information in order to offer users a better site navigation experience, as well as services that are adapted to users’ needs and interests. This information offers web site owners valuable feedback on how users navigate the internet, so that web sites become more efficient and easily accessible.

What is a “cookie”?

A “cookie” (also referred to as a “browser cookie”, “HTTP cookie” or “cookie module”) is a small size file, consisting of letters and figures that are stored on the user’s computer, mobile phone or on any device on which such user accesses the internet.

A “cookie” includes two elements: name and content (or value). Also, this type of information has a limited lifetime. Practically, only the web server that sends the information can access cookies again, when the user returns to the web site associated to the respective web server.

This type of information does not require, in and of itself, personal data to be subsequently used, and, in most cases, it does not identify internet users.

There are two main categories of information. Session cookies (temporary information) are created in a sub-file of your browser when you navigate a web site. When you leave the web site, the temporary information is automatically deleted.  Persistent cookies (durable information) remain in the respective sub-folder of your web browser and are reactivated when you return to the web site having created the respective information in the first place. Durable information remains there for a time period equal to the one set in the information archive.

What is a cookie’s lifetime?

The lifetime of a “cookie” can vary significantly, depending on the purpose it has been created for. As mentioned above, some “cookies” are exclusively used for one session (session cookies) and they are deleted when the user leaves the internet, whereas other information is stored and reused every time the user returns to the respective web site (persistent cookies). However, any information can be deleted by the user at any time, using the browser settings.

What are third party “cookies”?

Parts of the specific web site’s content can be offered via third parties (e.g. a video image). Such third parties can place this information on their web site, and said information shall be referred to as “third party cookies” as it is not placed by the owner of the initial site. However, these third parties are also bound to observe the legal provisions in force and the confidentiality policies of the initial site owner.

What “cookies” does this web site use?

Google AdWords Information – this information helps us manage our web site the best possible way by analyzing our users’ online behavior.
