What options do I have?

You have two options. You may either proceed with the acceptance of cookies and other mechanisms (“Accept All”), which will enable you to access all our website functionalities, or you may proceed with the personalization of your cookie settings, which may decrease your website experience (“Save settings”).

Necessary cookies are installed upon your website visit. As they are strictly necessary either from a technical perspective, or in order to offer you the website services or functionalities of your choice, the applicable legislation allows us to install them without requiring any action or consent from you. Unfortunately, if you do not wish for them to be installed, you should not use our services and manually delete the cookies that have already been installed on your browser.

Preference, Performance and Targeting cookies are installed only if you either select the “Accept all” button, which you will find next to the initial basic information that we provide, as  well as underneath the expanding full notification (banner). We will remember this choice of yours for a year. When this period is over, or if you visit us from another device or a different browser, we will ask you again.

By selecting the button “Save settings”, that you will find underneath the expanding full notification (banner), any of the Preference, Performance or Targeting cookies that you have chosen by ticking the relevant box, will be installed and we will remember this choice of yours for one year. If you have not ticked any of the boxes and select “Save settings”, then only Necessary cookies will be installed and the next time you visit us, we will ask you again. 

Change of settings – Withdrawal of consent

At any time, you may change for future use, the choice you have made with respect to cookies and similar technologies on our website. At the bottom of this Policy you will find two options: “Accept all” and “Save settings”. Regardless of what was your selection the last time we asked you through a pop-up banner if you accept the installation of cookies and similar technologies, you can decide again, easily, directly and free of charge, by using these fields.

For example, if you had selected “Accept all” and you changed your mind, you may select at the bottom of this Policy any (or none) of the cookie categories you want to and then select “Save settings”. This action would act as a withdrawal of the consent you had already given to us and it would apply for future use, namely from this change onwards, our website will not use (these particular) cookies and similar technologies on your device. In case you also wish to remove the cookies that had already been installed on your device before the aforementioned withdrawal of your consent, then you may do so manually, by following the instructions that you will find in the “Control via browser settings – Removal of cookies” section below.

Control via browser settings – Removal of cookies

You may also control and manage the cookies via the settings of the browser you use. Some of your options (depending on the browser), are for example, the acceptance of all cookies, the notification for the installation of cookies or the ban of their installation.

Through the settings of your browser, you may reverse any installation of cookies and similar mechanisms by our website, by deleting the files already stored.

In order to manage and deactivate cookies, you may follow the relevant instructions per browser:
