What should you do if you do not want to install cookies on your computer?
Some believe that if a site saves information on the computer or on their mobile device, it somehow interferes with their privacy, especially when this information is stored and used by third parties unknowingly. You can, if you prefer, block some or all cookies, as well as clear cookies that have already been placed on your computer. Know, however, that this may cause you to lose certain features of the site. To do this, you must change the browser’s confidentiality parameters. Third party developers have also developed programming tools that allow you to disable data collection and use.
What are cookies?
Cookies may come from the site you visit (“firstpartycookies”) or be placed on other sites that provide content through the page you see (“thirdpartycookies”).
What do cookies contain?
Cookies are plain text that stores web servers on your computer or mobile device and can then retrieve it or read it. Cookies are used by the web browser. Each is unique and contains anonymous information such as a unique identifier, site name, digits or letters. Allow sites to remember your preferences in navigation.
“Firstpartycookies” are placed from the site you are visiting at this time. Only this site can read it.
Thirdpartycookies are created and used by a publisher other than the site owner you are visiting. For example, a website may use another company’s services to analyze its audience. This company then defines its own cookie to make the analysis. The site you visit may also include content embedded elsewhere, for example YouTube videos, or Flickr slideshows. These sites can also add their own cookies.
AddThis, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Flickr sites can place cookies useful for sharing content through social networking sites, or for collecting statistics on visits. The presence, number and status of cookies may depend on how you use these platforms before or after your visit to the apiastos.gr website.
We encourage you to visit the relevant sites to learn about the policy of using cookies from social networks.
Session cookies are temporarily stored for a navigation session and are cleared from the computer when the browser is closed.
Cookies of this type are recorded on your computer for a limited time (generally one year or longer) and are not erased when the browser is closed. Permanent cookies are used when you need to identify who you are, for longer than a navigation session.
Many sites use AdobeFlashPlayer to view videos and presentations to users. Adobe uses its own cookies, which you can not interfere with by changing your browser. They are used by FlashPlayer for the same purposes as other cookies, that is to store preferences, or to identify users.
Flashcookies work differently than your browser’s cookies. Instead of having specific cookies for each use, the site records all data of interest within a unique cookie. You can control the amount of data that can be stored in the cookie, but you can not select the type of information that may be recorded on it.
You can also visit http://www.aboutcookies.org/ which contains detailed information on how cookies are handled by different browsers and includes details on how to delete cookies from your computer, as well as further general information for cookies.
