Personal information this website collects and why we collect it
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Every visitor can browse the kirpitsas.gr online store without providing any personal information. We will need personal data (your email, a username and a password) only when you order services or products.
Information regarding the purchase of services and products:
The necessary information for each transaction is your name, a landline, address (street, city, postal code) and type of document (receipt, invoice). At the same time, we voluntarily ask for some information such as mobile phone number (in case we need to contact you directly), fax number and occupation.
The IP address through which the PC has access to the Internet and subsequently to kirpitsas.gr is used exclusively for the collection of statistical data and the security of transactions.
Website traffic monitoring
Like most websites, this one uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user activity. We use this data to determine the number of people using our website, to better understand how they find and use our websites, and to see their journey through the website. Although GA records data such as your geographic location, device, web browser and operating system, none of this information makes you personally identifiable to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address, which could be used to identify you, but Google does not give us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor which is compatible with the requirements of European legislation.
Contact forms and email links
In the event that you choose to contact us using a contact form or a link in our email, none of the data you provide will be stored by this website or transferred to or processed by any third party data processor as defined below under “Our Third Party Data Processors”. Instead, this data will be sent to us in an email message via SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) security protocol, which means that email content is encrypted before it is sent over the internet. Email content is decrypted by our local computers and devices.
