We retain personal data concerning our customers for as long as this is necessary for the purposes of processing or as required by law. We collect Personal Data for various purposes (see above) and may need to retain it for legal reasons (including for tax, civil or other legal regulations) for longer than what is necessary to provide our services. We maintain a data retention policy to cover all the personal data we retain across our systems. If you have any questions about the retention period applying to the personal data we collect about you, please contact us at


Information is stored and accessed in various locations, including cloud services. The servers that store information are primarily located in Greece, Europe and the United States, although storage may occur in other locations as well. We use proper technical and organizational measures (a) to protect Personal Data against loss, theft, unauthorized use, disclosure or modification and (b) to ensure the integrity of your Personal Data. To help us protect your privacy, you should maintain the confidentiality of any login and password identifiers or other identifiers or credentials you may have created or been provided for the purpose of using our products, services and websites. As you know, there is no completely secure method of transmitting or storing data. Although their physical characteristics are different, postal mail, telephone calls, e-mail messages, text messages, fax messages and transmissions over the Internet or wireless networks all present possibilities of loss, misuse, interception and unauthorised use of the data transmitted. If you have reason to believe that any account with us is no longer secure, you must immediately contact us.


You have all the rights according the provisions of the law. In particular, you have the right to access and update your Personal Data covered by this Policy. To do this, you may contact us at the details set out in Section 6 below. While we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request, we also reserve the right to impose certain restrictions and requirements on such access requests, if allowed or required by applicable laws.

  2. object to the processing of your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes, including profiling, to the extent it relates to direct marketing;

  4. object to automated decision making (including profiling) in certain circumstances;
  5. request erasure of your Personal Data in certain circumstances, such as where the processing is no longer necessary for the purpose it was originally collected and there is no compelling reason for us to continue to process or store it;
