- Type and use of the data collected
The extent and type of the information we receive from you on our website depends on your actions during your visit there. If you visit our website to read or download information, the data we collect – such as the Internet domain you are connected to, the time and date of accessing the website, and the Internet link through which you were redirected to our website – is being used exclusively for statistical purposes and in order to help us improve our website. However, these data are not connected to any name, address, or other readable personal data and they are being used for us to provide you with professional services and only under the condition that you have provided us with this information or if it is available in the public domain, e.g., at your company’s or personal website. For example, if you send us an e-mail asking for information, we will use your name, physical address, e-mail address, telephone number, education, professional affiliation, job profile/function as needed to respond to your request. Also, we will use payment data necessary for processing payments. The information we collect will be maintained only for the time period necessary for us to satisfy your request or for as long as the law permits. Personal data shall be disclosed to our business partners strictly if it is only required to serve your needs and shall not be disclosed to a third party for any other purpose without your prior explicit consent. Where and as permitted under applicable law, STAMIDIS PCC may process your contact information for direct marketing purposes (e.g., trade show invitations, newsletters, product updates etc.). In addition, the data may be used by our sales employees to submit offers to you and to be able to provide you or your company with the best service. If you tell us that you do not want us to use this information as the basis for further communication with you beyond the fulfilment of your immediate requests, we must comply with your wish. If you provide us with a third party’s personal information, e.g., of a colleague, we will assume that you have their consent to do so.
Also, on our website there might be links to the websites of our partners. STAMIDIS PCC shall not be held responsible for the personal data collected through the above-mentioned websites, since the present Personal Data management policy does not apply in them.
The visitors of the website should know that, upon reading the pages of the website, information of non-personal nature may automatically be collected in the form of “cookies”. A cookie is a small file that a website – when visited by “you” (the user) – asks your browser to store on your device to save information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Cookies are either set by us and called “First Party Cookies” or they are set by third parties that provide services to us and called “Third Party Cookies”.
Cookies can be assigned to five categories, depending on their function, and intended purpose: strictly necessary, performance, functionality, marketing, and third-party cookies.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in (if applicable) or filling in forms. Without these cookies, services requested through usage of our website cannot be properly provided.
Strictly necessary cookies do not require consent from the user under applicable law. You may configure your web browser to block strictly necessary cookies, but in this case, the website might not function as intended.
To the extent that information processed in connection with strictly necessary cookies should qualify as personal data at a given case, the legal ground for that processing is STAMIDIS PCC’s legitimate interest to operate its website.
These cookies collect information about the usage of a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and how visitors move around the site. They help us to improve the user friendliness of our website and therefore enhance the user experience.
Further information collected by performance cookies may include e.g., the internet browser and operating system used, the domain name of the website which the visitor previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, pages called up etc.
The information collected by these cookies is aggregated and can normally not be linked to a specific natural person. To the extent that information processed in connection with performance cookies should, at a given case, qualify as personal data, the legal ground for that processing is the user’s consent.
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make or information you enter (such as your username, language, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They are also used to enable requested functions such as playing videos.
To the extent that information processed in connection with functionality cookies should, at a given case, qualify as personal data, the legal ground for that processing is the user’s consent.
Marketing cookies (also referred to as targeting or advertising cookies) are used to deliver adverts on third party websites more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data in connection with marketing cookies (if any) is the user’s consent.
Third Party Cookies
A website might have added functionality provided by other sites (e.g., social networks) through specific plugins. For the operation of these plugins, a cookie is downloaded directly from the service providers to your device, without us (i.e., the original website) checking the settings of the cookies originating from these specific sites. For more information about these cookies and how to manage them, you can visit the respective third-party sites:
