Type of data processed

Navigation data

The software systems and procedures required for the smooth functioning of this website will log certain personal data which require internet communication protocols before being transferred. The purpose of logging such information is not so that it can be associated with identified persons, even though such data could be exploited by third parties through manipulation and cross-referencing with their own information to identify certain users. Such data might be the IP addresses or the domain names of the particular computers used to access the pertinent websites, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the exact time when the request was made, the method used to transfer the request to the server, the size of the received data file, the numeric code received from the server denoting the status of the response (success, error etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the configuration of the computer used.

Such data are only logged for the purpose of anonymous statistical data logging on the use of the website and also for checking that the site is running correctly and these will only be kept for the time that this requires. The data may be used in case of a possible attack on our website in order to determine who might be responsible.

Data provided voluntarily by the user

Cookies are not used to capture personal data about the users. No cookies are used to transfer personal information nor are there any so-called persistent cookies of any kind, i.e. systems which track users.

The use of so-called session cookies (which are not saved on the user’s computer and are deleted when the browser is closed) is restricted to transferring session identification numbers (consisting of randomly generated numbers) designed to enable safe and efficient navigation within the website.

Special measures will be in place in order to prevent loss of such data, illegal or inappropriate use or non-authorised access.
