Personal Data Security

We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against unlawful security incidents or data breach. We store personal data on secure servers that are managed by our service providers. All data that we transmit in electronic transactions is protected by data encryption.

You should be aware that storing and transmitting information on the internet is never 100% secure. Storage and transmission hardware or software failures or malicious code written by hackers may compromise the security of information. We bear no liability for loss of security in such circumstances. Allowing your personal data to be transmitted and stored in the internet is risky, and by continuing to visit, access and use our Website you are consenting to that risk.

 

Personal Data-Related Rights and Related Actions

The GDPR rules specify the following rights for all data subjects:

Right to be informed: You have the right to be informed about the collection and use of your personal data.
Our related action: This is why we are informing you in detail about your rights, as well as the personal data that we collect, the purposes for which we collect them, their retention period and who we share them with. In this regard we will always inform you about changes, updates, and novelties. Also, if we collect data about you from other sources we will inform you about it.

Right to withdraw your consent: You have the right to withdraw your consent in relation to how we use your personal data at any time.
Our related action: If the legal basis for the processing involved is the freely given consent that now is being withdrawn, the said processing will be discontinued.

Right of access: You have the right to request a copy of the data that we hold about you.
Our related action: A copy of the personal data that we hold about you will be sent to you, together with the supplementary information that the GDPR regulation requires from us to send.

Right of rectification: You have a right to correct data that we hold about you that is inaccurate or incomplete.
Our related action: The inaccuracy, if there is one, will be corrected. If the data that we hold about you is incomplete and the completion request is reasonable and the effort needed is not disproportionate, the requested addition will be done.

Right of erasure: You can ask for the data we hold about you to be erased from our records.
Our related action: If based on the GDPR rules the request is legitimate, the data we hold about you will be erased.

Right to restriction of processing: You can ask for us to restrict our processing of your data.
Our related action: If based on the GDPR rules the request of restriction of processing is legitimate, it will be applied.

Right for notifications to recipients: When a rectification, erasure or restriction of processing is implemented, such action must be communicated to each recipient to whom the personal data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Also, you may request that we inform you about those recipients.
Our related action: Unless if the requested notification is demonstrably uncalled for, impossible to execute, or involves disproportionate effort, it will be executed. Also, you will receive information about the recipients involved, if you have requested it.

Right of portability: You have the right to have the personal data that you have given to us transferred to another organization, or to you.
Our related action: if based on the GDPR rules the request to transfer to you the personal data that you have provided us with, or to transfer it to another organization, is legitimate and you provide us with the proper address information, the transfer will be done.

Right to object: You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to our processing of your data, where we are relying on a legitimate interest of ours in order to process it.
Our related action: We will discontinue the processing involved, except if we have demonstrably compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your rights as a data subject.

Right to be notified about a breach of data: You have the right to receive from us a notification about any breach of data involving your personal data when we become aware of it and without undue delay.
Our related action: As soon as we become aware of such a breach, we will notify you about it either directly with an e-mail, or through public communication.

 

How to go about protecting your rights?

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the local supervisory authority for data protection issues. We would appreciate the opportunity to deal with your concerns before you complain to the supervisory authority, and for that purpose you can contact our Data Protection Officer ([email protected]).

You can also contact our DPO when you have personal data rights related requests. Send a detailed e-mail to the DPO specifying the request that you have and, normally within one month of the receipt of your e-mail your request will be taken care of. Note that we will do our best to respect the one month deadline, but sometimes, if your request is complex or you have made several requests, we might need more time. In this case, we will write to you without delay and notify you. Note also that if the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular, because of its repetitive character, we will be obliged to refuse to act on the request. If this is the case, we will notify you about it without delay.

Please note that in order for us to be able to process your request and to complete the processing of your request in one month the following additional requirements apply:

  • if your request applies to the entirety of your data, you must say so; otherwise, you must specify precisely what part of your data it applies to
  • in case you withdraw consent, you must indicate clearly the data and the processing for which you are withdrawing consent
  • in case you request a rectification, you have to be precise about the inaccuracy to be corrected or missing data to be added
  • in case you request a restriction of processing, you have to be very precise about the data involved, the specific processing to be restricted and the restriction to be applied
  • in case you request a transfer of your data to another organization, you must give our DPO the correct name and contact details (e-mail, phone numbers, etc.) of the organization.

Note that we will execute your request free of charge, except when it is manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of its repetitive character. If this is the case, we will either charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of executing the request, or we will be obliged to refuse to act on the request. In either case we will reply without delay and notify you.

 

When and how we will contact you?

We might send you occasional e-mails as follows:

A.      Updates, notifications, invitations

a)     notify you about changes in our policies and guidelines;

b)     send you information and links for new content and services on our website ;

b)     check with you about activities and services you have signed up for

   Note that in case you have provided us with your mobile number, and only if communicating with you on an important matter by e-mail has failed multiple times, we may contact you by calling you. This will be very rare. In the case of group (A) communications above, you can avoid being contacted by phone by not giving your consent.

Cookies and Cookie Management

What are cookies and web beacons?

A "cookie" is a small data file that is sent from a web server to your browser and stored in the memory or the hard drive of your device. It helps the website that created it remember some information about you (such as your approximate location, your e-mail address), as well as your device (such as the device’s IP address), the browser you are using (such as browser type), and your browsing activity (such as pages you are visiting). Both we and some third party websites may put cookies in your browser. Some third parties may also use a similar technology called web beacon. A Web beacon (also called web bug) is an often transparent, tiny graphic image that is placed on a website and is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the website. The information it collects is similar to what a cookie collects. Web beacons often work in combination with cookies.

 

What are the different types of cookies?

  • Session cookies are created when you start visiting a website and are deleted from your device when you close your browser.
  • Persistent cookies are saved on your device for a fixed period of time after the browser has closed.
  • First party cookies are cookies that are set by the website you are visiting.
  • Third party cookies are cookies created by third parties with whom we cooperate to obtain useful services.

 

What types of service do cookies provide?

You may encounter five categories of cookies on our website:

  • Necessary cookies: Required to navigate the website and use its functions successfully. They do not collect any personal data.
  • Functional Cookies: Used to authenticate your identity and to remember your preferences. For instance, they help us remember if you have visited our site before so that messages intended for first-time users are not displayed to you.
  • Performance cookies: Used to monitor the performance of our website. They collect analytical-statistical information on the way the website and its pages are used (for instance, which pages users visit the most, what is the number of visitors to the website, how do visitors move around the website). Google Analytics, with whom we are cooperating to obtain analytical services creates and stores such cookies.
  • Social media cookies: These cookies are created and stored by social network servers. We cooperate with social networks and include in our pages their plug-ins (such as “Like”, “Share”, “Follow” buttons). Even if you do not click on such buttons, the code associated with these plug-ins may make use of cookies to collect information about you, such as the pages that you view and your IP address.
  • Advertising cookies: Used to record your interests, to remember what sites and pages you have visited and allowing the website and third parties to show personalized advertisements tailored to your interests. Also used to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. In its current phase of operation our Website will not do any advertising. When there is a change in this regard, we will inform you. Advertising done on our website in future may include personalized advertising, but only if beforehand you give us your consent for such personalization.
     

How can you manage cookie activity by giving/denying consent?

  • Necessary cookies: You will not be allowed to opt-out from the use of this type of cookies, as without them the basic services of our website will not be available to you.
  • Functional Cookies: Upon your first visit to our website, and every time after deleting cookies from your device, you will be asked to give your explicit consent for the activity of this type of cookies. Also, anytime you feel like it, you may withdraw your consent and opt-out, but you will then be disabling some services and your use of our website will be less smooth and pleasant.
  • Performance cookies: Upon your first visit to our website, and every time after deleting cookies from your device, you will be asked to give your explicit consent for the activity of this type of cookies. Also, anytime you feel like it, you may withdraw your consent and opt-out, but then you will be denying us the possibility of obtaining very useful aggregated information that will help us improve our website’s services and performance.
  • Social media cookies: Upon your first visit to our website, and every time after deleting cookies from your device, you will be asked to give your explicit consent for the activity of this type of cookies. Also, anytime you feel like it, you may withdraw your consent and opt-out.

Note that we do not recommend turning cookies off, because preferences and some functionality will be lost and your experience on our website will be more tasking and less pleasant.
