Cookies Policy

The primary objective of this policy is to give general guidelines on the use of cookies on the websites of HELLENICA SA, Maroussi Attica, Chimaras str. no. 7,


Cookies are small text files stored by the browser on the computer, on the tablet, on the mobile phone, and generally on the device with which someone is browsing the site

Each cookie contains information such as the name of the website from which it originates, its 'lifetime' (i.e. how long it will stay on the device), and a value, usually a number. A cookie may remain on the device for up to one (1) year.

Cookies are unique to each web browser (such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, etc.) and contain anonymous information regarding the websites visited by the user and the devices they 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, provided these are absolutely necessary for the operation of the site. For all other types of cookies, we need the user's permission, the user's consent is essential. Any user - visitor - subscriber may change or withdraw his / her consent at any time through the Cookies Statement on our website.

In paragraph 5 of Article 4, L. 3471/2006, as amended by L. 4070/2012, it is stipulated that the installation of "cookies" is only allowed if the subscriber or user "has given their consent upon clear and extensive notifying under par. 1 of article 11 of L. 2472/1997, as in force".

This system is also known as 'opt-in' as opposed to the 'opt-out' system in place prior to 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 notified and has not opposed the processing.

Accordingly, in line with the above, the provider of an internet service (e.g. an online store) or a third party (e.g. an advertising network that promotes its products through the website of an online store) may install a "cookie" only if upon proper prior notification they have secured the consent of the subscriber or user.

The use of cookies makes it easier for the Web site to memorize information about the user's visit by collecting useful information about the search preferences they have already made in their previous visits to the Website. Thus, the search experience will be improved the next time the user revisits the site. In addition, cookies help control Web site performance and traffic, improving its presentation and content, according to the preferences of its visitors.
