When you use our website and online services (the “Site”), we may store cookies in your browser. Other third parties you choose to visit may do the same. This Cookie Policy explains what a cookie is, how you can manage your cookies and what types of cookies may be on our websites.

WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHY DO WE USE THEM?

Cookies are small pieces of text. They are provided by most websites and stored by your browser on the computer, phone or other device you use. Cookies serve many purposes. They can help a website remember your preferences, learn which areas of the website are useful and which areas need improvement, and provide you with targeted advertising or personalized content. Sometimes, cookies are activated when pixels are placed on a website. Pixels are also referred to as web beacons, clear gifs and tags. They allow websites to read and place cookies.

Manufacturer cookies and third-party cookies

Cookies can be from the manufacturer or from third parties. A manufacturer cookie is one that you receive directly from Avourdiadis Brothers O.E.V.E. when you visit our Website. A third-party cookie is one that you have received from another party, such as Google or Facebook. We do not control what third parties do on other websites. However, we may work with some third-party providers such as Google or Facebook to enable their cookies to function through our Website so that we can learn more about your web experience on our Website and better personalize our services for you.

Persistent cookies and session cookies

A persistent cookie is a cookie that is stored by your web browser on your device until it expires or you delete it. The expiration of a persistent cookie is determined by the creator of the cookie and can be on a specific date or after a long session time has elapsed. This means that, for the entire lifetime of the cookie, its information will be transmitted to the creator’s server every time the user visits the website it belongs to or another website configured to check for this cookie (such as an advertisement placed on this website). For this reason, persistent cookies are also called “tracking cookies”.

A session cookie is temporarily created on your device for use by a website during your visit. This type of cookie can store information you enter and track your activity on the website. A session cookie is deleted after you leave the website or when the web browser is closed. A good example of a session cookie is the shopping cart on an e-commerce website. The session cookie stores the items you add to your cart so they are not forgotten while you view products on other pages of the site.

HOW DO I MANAGE COOKIES?

Most web browsers allow you to choose whether to accept cookies. Most also allow you to delete cookies that have already been set. The options available and the mechanism used will vary from browser to browser. Such browser settings are usually found in the “options”, “tools” or “preferences” menu. You can also consult the “help” menu of the browser. For example:

Cookie settings in Internet Explorer

Cookie settings in Firefox

Cookie settings in Chrome

Cookie settings in Safari

There are online tools available to clear all cookies left behind by websites you’ve visited, such as www.allaboutcookies.org. Typically, deleting cookies will anonymize the information associated with the pixel and a website will not receive any other relevant information.
