When you need to provide us with your personal data
When you visit our website: (IP address, URL, Browser, OS)
ETHOS MEDIA S.A. can identify the IP address via which the computer or any other electronic device acquires access to the internet and then to our website. This is due to the way the internet operates and the purpose here is to safeguard networks from malicious acts. For the same reason, this function collects information about the type of browser and your operating system (Windows, android, iOS, etc.) as a user. That information cannot directly identify you and is stored for the minimum period necessary to ensure network security. That data does not require your prior consent before it is collected, since it is necessary for each website to operate safely and properly.
That data is held in log files on our website’s server for … months.
The legal basis for the initial collection of that data is Article 4(5)(a)(c) Law 3471/2006 which permits technical storage or access whose sole purpose is to transfer a communication via an electronic communications network or which is necessary to provide an information society service which the user has expressly requested. The legal basis for retaining your data is our legitimate interest in the proper and safe operation of our website. You have the right to object to the retention of your data on grounds relating to your particular situation, where your rights and freedoms override our legitimate interests or the need to collect data to establish, exercise or defend our legal claims. On the question of how to exercise this right, please see the section entitled “Rights”.

Cookies are small data/text files stored on your computer’s hard disk by your browser.
Cookies are divided into different categories depending on the purpose they serve and how they operate, such as making it easier for you to navigate from one website to another, storing your preferences and in general improving your browsing experience.
