INFORMATION ABOUT COOKIES
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files containing information, which are stored by the server of a website on the terminal device (computer, mobile phone, etc.) of a visitor/user who navigates it. At each visit, the website retrieves this information to offer related services. A typical example of such information is user preferences on a website, which are set by the choices of the visitors/users (e.g. selection of specific buttons, searches, etc.).
According to Article 4 par. 5 of law 3471/2006, storage or access to stored information in the user terminal device is allowed only if the specific user has given their consent after receiving clear and extensive information. Under the above paragraph, an exception to the obligation of obtaining user consent is the case of storage of and access to information whose sole purpose is to “transmit a communication through an electronic communications network or if such data are deemed necessary to provide an information society service (ISS) that has been explicitly requested by the user or the subscriber”. Actually, user consent is not required for cookies which are considered technically necessary for the connection to the website or for the provision of the internet service.
Cookies may be installed by the provider of the website visited by the user (first-party cookies) or by other parties through the provider of the website (third-party cookies) visited by the user.
