Our company, respecting the importance of the proper collection, maintenance, processing and storage of the personal data of its customers and visitors/users of the e-shop, expressly declares that it observes all the guarantees of secure management and protection of natural persons against the processing of personal data, in compliance with the provisions of European Regulation no. 2016/679, as it has been incorporated into our national law and is currently in force.
Our business is committed to keeping your personal data safe and secure. Below you will find information about what personal data we collect, process and store and why.
For all the services provided by our company, the company “PANAGIOTIS L. ALEXIOU” is responsible for the processing of your Personal Data.
What kind of information do we collect?
We collect information that helps us to upgrade the services we provide to you! The data we collect is used exclusively for the services you request and is not shared with third parties under any circumstances. Our website, therefore, collects Cookies and, in some cases, only IP Addresses, without, however, collecting, processing or storing personal data related to their use. In addition, every time you fill out an expression of interest form on our website, we collect information that we treat as personal data. We consider as personal data the information you provide that exclusively identifies you, such as your name, your email address and your telephone number.
How do we collect personal data?
Initially, when you submit your details on an expression of interest form for our services via our website, we receive an email with them. This message is sent via the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). SMTP servers are protected by a TLS or SSL certificate, which means that email content is encrypted before it is sent over the internet. Then the content is decrypted by local computers and local devices. The information collected is stored in our website database. This action helps us to carry out certain procedures – for example, to preserve your information in case it becomes impossible to receive the email via the SMTP server. Furthermore, when you opt to receive our newsletter in your email inbox, your email address is stored on our website, received via email and forwarded to MailChimp, which provides our company with email marketing services. Your email address remains in MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to use its services or until you explicitly request to be removed from our list. Please note that as long as your email address remains in the MailChimp database, you will receive periodic email updates from us. If you are under 16 years of age, you must obtain parental consent before subscribing to our newsletter. We consider MailChimp to be a third party data processor.
How do we use your personal data?
We use the information we collect in the above way, such as your email address and mobile phone number, so that we can interact with you directly and better! Since we aim to satisfy you, we ask for your consent to process your data for specific purposes. We inform you that you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
How do we protect your data?
Our website uses an SSL certificate. SSL guarantees a secure connection between the server hosting our website and the browser you are using. Any data that is transferred (files, personal information, etc.) to and from our website is encrypted so that it is impossible for any third party to access it without the required authorization or to intercept it. We are committed to successfully protecting your personal data from the very first moment it is received through our website. However, in the extreme case that we become aware of a security breach, we will notify you in time for you to take the necessary protective measures. Finally, we keep your personal data only for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which we collected it.
Send/Record personal data
If you wish to opt out of receiving newsletters by email, you can use the unsubscribe link included in all newsletters sent to your email. In case you wish to receive your personal data that are registered in our company’s database, you can send an email to email@example.com with the subject “REQUEST FOR PERSONAL DATA RELEASE”. In case you wish us to permanently delete your data from our company’s database, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “REQUEST FOR DELETION OF PERSONAL DATA”.
Third Party Tools
This website works with certain third parties who provide on our behalf the necessary tools to process the personal data we collect. These third parties are carefully selected and fully comply with the relevant legislation.
