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.
