COOKIES

Purpose

The primary purpose of this policy is to provide general guidelines on the use of cookies on the site: https://scent-plus.com/

INTRODUCTION

What are cookies and why they are used

Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser on your computer, tablet, mobile phone and generally on the device with which one browses https://scent-plus.com/

Each cookie contains information such as the name of the Website from which it came from, its “lifetime” (e.g. how long it will stay on the device), and a value, which is usually a number. A cookie may remain on the device for up to one (1) year.

Cookies are unique to each web browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari etc.) and contain anonymous information about the websites visited by the user as well as the devices used. They also allow sites to store visitor preferences (such as login data, language etc.).

The law states that we can store cookies on the user’s device as long as they are strictly necessary for the website’s operation. For all other cookies’ types, we require the user’s permission. User consent is essential. The individual user – visitor – subscriber may change or remove their consent at any time through the Cookies Policy on our site.

Paragraph 5 of Article 4 of Law 3471/2006, as amended by Law 4070/2012, stipulates that the installation of cookies “is allowed only if the subscriber or user” has given his consent after clear and extensive information” under paragraph 1 of article 11 of Law 2472/1997, as applicable. This system is also known as “opt-in”, as opposed to the “opt-out” system that was in force before the amendment of Directive 2002/58/EC and allowed the installation of cookies without the consent of the subscriber or user, provided the latter has been previously informed and has not objected to the editing.

Therefore, according to the above, an Internet service provider or a third party (e.g. advertising network promoting its products through the website of an online store) can only install a cookie if it has obtained the subscriber’s (or user’s) consent after prior appropriate update.

The use of cookies makes it easy for the Website to memorize information about the user’s visit, collecting useful information about the search preferences that have already taken place in its previous visits to the Site. This will improve the search experience the next time a user visits the site again. In addition, cookies help control the performance and traffic of the Website, improving its presentation and content in accordance with its visitors’ preferences.

Types of Cookies

The basic types of cookies used on the Website are described below:

Necessary Cookies

 

The role of these cookies is to store information or gain access to information already stored on your device solely for the purpose of transmitting a communication through an electronic communications network or, to the extent necessary, an information society service, which you have explicitly requested. According to the relevant legal framework, you will not be able to choose whether to decline the installation of these cookies, as it would not be technically possible to provide services from our site.

Performance Cookies

We use third party cookies (Google Analytics) solely for the purpose of analyzing traffic and improving the website’s performance, while taking appropriate technical and organizational steps to safely process your data (e.g. anonymizing IP address).
