How we use cookies and trackers

The Website uses cookies and related technologies (hereinafter “trackers“) in order to ensure its proper and secure operation and to optimize your browsing experience.

Therefore when you visit the Website, a tracker may be installed on your device. Trackers are techniques such as: HTTP/S cookies, flash cookies, “local storage” (local storage) implemented in HTML 5, identification by calculating the digital footprint of the terminal device, identifiers generated by operating systems (whether intended for advertising purpose or not: IDFA, IDFV, Android ID, etc.), hardware identifiers (MAC address, serial number or other device identifier), etc.

The use of trackers allows KDK to recognize your device, to gather information regarding usage patterns when you navigate the Website, to store certain information about your preferences or previous actions, to improve the online experience and personalized experience. In addition, it allows us to automatically collect information about the sites you visit and about links to third-party websites that you may select through your use of our Website.

You can configure your web browsing program, your browser, to either warn it about the use of trackers on certain services or to prevent it from accepting the use of trackers on certain or any services. If the user of the specific services and pages does not wish to use trackers to identify him or herself, he or she cannot access these services any further. In particular, you can select or exclude trackers at any time – except for absolutely necessary trackers (they are used to help us make the Website work efficiently), you can delete trackers, e.g. cookies, installed on your device at any time, you can prevent new cookies from being stored and receive a notification before a new cookie is installed by making relevant settings in your browser software.

Where certain types of trackers require you to provide your prior consent in order to be installed and used, you will be asked via a banner. If you choose not to provide access or to delete certain cookies, you will still be able to visit the Website, but its functionality may be limited. That is, blocking certain types of trackers, e.g. cookies, may affect your experience on the Site and the Services we offer you.

Types of Trackers

Χρησιμοποιούμε «μόνιμους» (persistent) ιχνηλάτες, όπως επίσης ιχνηλάτες «συνεδρίας»/ ιχνηλάτες «περιόδου λειτουργίας» (session). A persistent tracker is stored on your terminal equipment, is not automatically deleted when you close your browser, and will remain for the period of time set for that particular tracker. In contrast, a session tracker is placed only for the duration of your visit to our Website and is deleted as soon as you close your browser.

Α. Necessary trackers

These are trackers that are technically necessary for the proper and secure operation of the website (e.g. for the realization of the connection to our website or for the provision of the internet service requested by the user). These are “session” / “session” trackers, which are only placed for the duration of your visit to our Website and are deleted as soon as you close your browser / browser.

Β. Analysis trackers

If you choose to do so and provide us with your consent, we will use Google Analytics (provided by Google LLC) for the purpose of statistical analysis (web analytics) and in order to obtain information about the use and traffic of our Website, through the monitoring and analysis of the behaviour and interaction of users of the Website. For example, we will be able to know how users arrived at the Website (i.e. which links each user followed to reach the Website), which pages of the Website were viewed by users, how much time they spent on each of them, etc. Google Analytics Analytics will provide us with reports describing and analysing the Site’s traffic and demographic data relating to the Site’s users (e.g. the region from which they logged in, data on the return rate to the Site, information about the browser they use), which will help us to optimise the Site’s content and operation.

For the operation of the Google Analytics service it is necessary for Google to install the cookies in the table below on the device of the user visiting our Website, which entails the processing by Google of personal data of the user in question; specifically, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, demographic data and user’s geographic location, user’s device technology (e.g. iOS, Android, etc.), user’s device type (mobile, computer, tablet), average session length , sessions and generally how the user interacts with the website. For the purposes of providing the Google Analytics service, this user data will be transferred by Google outside the European Union, including to countries outside the European Union, including the United States (where, under certain conditions, competent government authorities in the United States may also have access to this data). More details on the geographical location of Google’s subcontractors can be found here).

We would like to point out that in the context of the operation of the Google Analytics service we use, as a technical data protection measure (privacy by design), the “_anonymizeIp ()” function of Google, in order to hide the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of the website users whose behaviour is analysed (more information can be found here). It is clarified that, even with the use of the “_anonymizeIp ()” function, in general the processed data is still considered personal data (i.e. not fully anonymized) and can be used by Google for its own purposes as well (e.g. .to improve its services, to develop new services, to measure the effectiveness of advertisements, to compile user profiles, to correlate with other data collected from user accounts in other Google services (e.g. history searches), etc., according to Google’s relevant policies, which are available and we encourage you to study here, here, here and here.
