WHO WE ARE

Melitropon is a pastry making laboratory for syrup sweets and our website address is: www.melitropon.gr.

We are committed to protecting your privacy and providing a secure online experience while furthering your ability to access information and resources intended for your overall well-being.  Any reference to “we,” “us,” “our website,” or “this site” are references to www.melitropon.gr. This site includes links to the websites of other institutions, organizations, and domains. This Privacy Policy does not apply to those third party websites and we cannot assume responsibility for the privacy or information policies, practices or actions of any third parties. To learn how any third party website uses your information, please review the third party website’s privacy policy.

 

WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use your personal information. Your access to and use of this site, including providing your personal information, constitutes your acceptance of and agreement to comply with this Privacy Policy, including any changes in effect prior to your use of this site. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, do not access or use this site or provide any personal information through this site. This policy may be amended from time to time, in our discretion and without further notice to you, as we adapt to a changing business, technological, and regulatory environment. We encourage you to check this site periodically and review the most recent Privacy Policy, as indicated by the Effective Date 25th of May 2018. Your use of this site after the date of any revision constitutes your acceptance of and agreement to comply with the revised Privacy Policy.

In certain areas of this site, we may request that you provide us with your personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, address, zip code, or contact information. Whether or not to provide such personal information is completely your own choice. If you choose not to provide such information, however, it may impact our ability to provide you with certain services or assistance.

When visitors use this site, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages were visited, the order in which they were visited, and which links were “clicked.” Collecting such information involves the collection and logging of IP addresses, operating system, and browser software used by each user of the website. Although such information is not always considered personal information, we can determine from the IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.

 

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.

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.

 

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

 

Cookies

We collect non-personal information in part through the use of “cookies”—that is, small text files placed on your computer’s hard drive—that help us determine the type of content and pages to which you link, the length of time you spend at any particular area of the site, the actions you take to search for content, and the resources you choose to use. This helps us identify the most popular areas of our website and determine the effectiveness of our information. A “session cookie” expires immediately when you end your session (i.e., close your browser). A “persistent cookie” stores information on the hard drive so that when you end your session and return to the same web site at a later date, the cookie information is still available.

Cookies allow us to serve you better and more efficiently, and to personalize your experience with this site. Most web browsers are initially set to accept cookies. However, you have the ability to disable cookies if you wish, generally through changing your internet software browsing settings. It may also be possible to configure your browser settings to enable acceptance of specific cookies or to notify you each time a new cookie is about to be stored on your computer, enabling you to decide whether to accept or reject the cookie. You can also disable or delete the stored data used by technology similar to cookies, by managing your browser’s “add-on settings.” As our cookies allow you to access some of this site’s features, we recommend that you leave cookies enabled. Otherwise, if cookies are disabled, it may mean that you experience reduced functionality or will be prevented from using this site altogether.

We contract with numerous service providers to provide us with reports regarding user activities on this site. These service providers may use cookies on our behalf and may receive information about your browsing activity. They may store information such as city, state, zip code, and/or email address on our behalf. This site does use services provided by Google Analytics. To learn more about how Google collects and processes data, please go to https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners.

Under no circumstances may our service providers use your information that is collected through this site other than in connection with providing services to us so that this site can become more useful and efficient. If you would like to opt-out of having your information included in or collected by these particular service providers, please contact info@melitropon.gr.

Please be aware that if you do not configure your browser, or actively opt out, you will accept cookies provided by this website. For more information on how to configure your browser, please refer to the documentation accompanying your browser.

 

Third party websites

This site contains links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to such websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave this site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects your personal information. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by this site.

 

HOW WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We may use your personal information to improve this site and customize your experience. For example, we may use your personal information to send you announcements, administrative messages, and other information; to send you national advocacy announcements or other items that we believe may be of interest to you; to “pre-populate” forms that are displayed for the purpose of searching for and finding information; and to support the operation of this site, such as account maintenance.

We may share information provided by our visitors to this site with service providers or vendors we have retained to perform services on our behalf, such as processing charitable donations. These service providers are contractually obligated to protect such information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy and otherwise applicable law and are contractually restricted from using or disclosing the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

We may require third party service providers to adhere to applicable laws, policies, and regulations policies regarding the privacy of our users and to otherwise handle personal information in a responsible manner.  We do not, however, assume any responsibility for any acts or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from us or independently. If you believe a third party associated with, or who claims association with us, may be improperly collecting or using information about you obtained through or in relation to this site, please contact info@melitropon.gr and we will forward your message to the third party.

We may use non-personal information in aggregate form to build a more useful website. We may perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our users, and measure demographics and interests regarding specific areas of this site. We may provide statistical information based on this data to our third party partners. We may also use the aggregate data to inform these third parties as to the number of people who have seen and clicked through links to their resources or services.

We do not sell, re-sell or distribute for resale your personal information. You may choose to unsubscribe from any email invitation or mailing list received through or maintained by this site by following the instructions included in the email.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, we reserve the right to retain or disclose information submitted by or concerning any user that we believe is reasonably necessary to protect our systems or operations. We may also retain and disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. We cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using our servers or website for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement for investigation or prosecution or to suspend or terminate your account or access in connection with any suspected illegal or infringing activity or if you are in violation of this Privacy Policy.

 

OPTING OUT

Our site provides you the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us at any point where we request that you provide us with your personal information. Where indicated just select the appropriate option. For example, you may “opt out” of receiving newsletters at any time in two ways:

  • By using the opt-out or unsubscribe link included in each email; or
  • By contacting us at info@melitropon.gr.

If you have provided more than one email address, you may continue to be contacted unless you request to unsubscribe each email address you have provided.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA SHARING

This site includes Social Media sharing features. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

 

SECURITY PROTOCOLS

The security of your personal information is important to us. We use reasonable technical, physical, and organizational security measures to protect your personal information, both during transmission and once we receive it, but we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We review and update our security practices periodically and as required by applicable laws or regulations.

If you have any questions about security on our site, you can contact us at info@melitropon.gr.

 

CORRECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION

If you would like to have your personal profile information removed from our database, or would like to correct, update, or amend such information, you can contact us and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request. Keep in mind, however, that residual information will remain within databases, access logs, and other records, which may or may not contain such personal information.

Please be aware that we may retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
