Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us when you are visiting our website https://kostaschatzichristos.com. Thus, we don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights.

What personal data we collect and how we use them

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Your email and IP address are not visible to the public when you comment.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Also, visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, Akismet. The Akismet service privacy policy is available here: https://akismet.com/privacy/

Contact forms

All personal data collected through our website’s contact form are used exclusively to process your request and to response to any queries which you may have. We will not e-mail you in the future unless you have given us your consent e.g. by registering to our newsletter or subscribing to our programs.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment.

We also use cookies to help identify and track visitors, their usage website, and their website access preferences. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using our website, with the drawback that certain features of our website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Analytics

kostaschatzichristos.com may collect anonymous statistics about the behavior of its visitors by using Google Analytics service. For instance, our website may monitor its most popular pages. The Google Analytics service privacy policy is available here: https://policies.google.com/privacy

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Privacy Policy Changes

Our website may change its privacy policy from time to time, and in our sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
