The GDPR defines a set of categories of personal data that are considered “sensitive” and which require the special attention of data controllers. This Website and any services available from this Website do not collect or process sensitive personal data.
How we share your personal information
In certain circumstances, we may transfer your personal information to carefully chosen third parties. We will never transfer your personal information for such purposes, unless you have permitted us to do so or we have a legal right to do so.
We use third party providers for the following services:
- Sending of promotional offers.

- Development, support, maintenance and hosting of information systems, including web hosting.
- Ordering and delivery through aluminati.gr

If, after giving us permission to transfer your personal data to third parties, you change your mind, you can opt out by contacting us as described below.
By submitting your personal information to us, you acknowledge that these third parties may receive and process your personal information. We ask all third parties to treat your personal information safely and to maintain all appropriate organisational and technical measures for the protection of your personal data. To ensure that they keep that obligation above, we have signed agreements with them, without prejudice to our right to take reasonable steps to enforce such obligation. We shall never sell your personal data.
Cookies are small data files which can include an anonymous unique identifier.
Cookies are sent to your web browser from a website and stored in your computer’s hard disk.
Like many websites, we use ‘cookies’ to collect information. You can ask your browser to dismiss all cookies or indicate when a cookie is sent. However, if you don’t accept cookies, you may not be able to use certain parts of our Website. For more information, please read our Cookies Policy.
Where we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), such information is encrypted and transmitted to us securely. You can confirm this by looking for the lock icon in the address bar and for “https” at the beginning of the web page address.
Apart from protecting sensitive information transmitted electronically using encryption technology, we also protect your offline information. Only employees “who need to know” to perform a particular task (for example, billing or customer service) have access to personally identifiable information. Computers/servers on which we store personally identifiable information are located in a secure environment.
The technology we use and the policies we have implemented are intended to protect your privacy from unauthorised access and improper use.
Where appropriate, we strive to ensure secure information transmission, such as credit card information, from your computer to our server using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption software. However, due to the inherently open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that all transmitted data will be secure, as no Internet transmission method or electronic storage method is 100% secure. By using this Website you accept this risk.

Legal basis for file processing
Article 6(1)a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing for which we obtain the consent for a specific purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the execution of a contract in which the data subject participates, such as in case the processing is necessary for the supply of goods or for the provision of any other service, the processing takes place according to article 6(1)b of the GDPR. The same applies to the processing operations required for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, i.e. for surveys concerning our products or services. If our company is bound by a legal obligation to process personal data, such as to comply with tax obligations, such processing is based on article 6(1)c of the GDPR.
The provision of personal data as a mandatory or contractual requirement. Mandatory requirement for contract conclusion. Obligation of the data subject to provide personal data. Possible consequences of not providing such data.
Please note that the provision of personal data is required in part by law (e.g. tax law) or may also arise from contractual provisions (e.g. counterparty information). Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract being terminated.
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision making or profiling processes.
