Cookies Policy

Cookies are information sets in text format, which are downloaded to your computer, laptop whenever you visit a site. Your web browser sends these cookies back to the site of origin at each of the subsequent visits or to another site that recognizes those cookies.

  • Cookie files are used on the Website for various reasons. These include the following among others:
  • for letting the User log in his/her account;
  • for letting the user choose his/her preferences of authentication;
  • for monitoring and collecting information about transactions made on Website;
  • for advertising;
  • in order to prevent fraud and to protect privacy

Cookie files are generally used in order to improve and optimize user’s experience. A part of cookie files we use are essential for the functioning of the Website.

There are two types of cookies:

  • session cookies − are created temporarily in your browser’s subfolder to memorize them until the user leaves the website or closes the browser window;
  • persistent cookies − they are stored on the hard-drive of the computer. Persistent cookies include those placed by another website than the one the user is just visiting − known as third-party cookies, these can be used anonymously in order to memorize user’s interests, so more relevant advertisements can be sent for the user.
Usually, an application used for accessing web pages permits saving cookies implicitly on the terminal. These settings can be changed in a way that the automatic administration of cookies is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed whenever cookies are sent on his/her terminal. Detailed information about the possibilities and ways of cookie control can be found in the settings of an application (web browser). Limiting the use of cookies may affect certain web page functions.

Cookies are not viruses! They use plain text formats. They do not consist of chunks of code, thus they cannot be executed or they do not automatically run. Since they cannot fulfil these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

Due to their flexibility and to the fact that the majority of the most visited and the biggest sites use cookies, they are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not let the user access the most used and popular sites. Disabling and refusing to use cookies can make certain sites impractical or difficult to be visited and used.

If you don’t agree to the use of cookies, you can block any cookies from your browser settings.
