WHAT COOKIES ARE
“Cookies” are small files with information that a website (specifically the web server) stores on the computer/tablet/mobile phone of a visitor/user, so that every time the visitor/user connects to the website, the latter retrieves the information in question and to offer him related services. A typical example of such information is the preferences of the visitor/user on a website, as indicated by the choices he makes on the specific website (e.g. selection of specific “buttons”, searches, etc.).
“Cookies” are governed by Directive 2002/58/EC as amended by Directive 2009/136/EC (which has been incorporated into Greek Law by Law 3471/2006) as expressly provided for in the 2016/679 EU Personal Data Protection Regulation (recital 173).
According to the current law (article 4 par. 5 of Law 3471/2006, as amended by article 170 of Law 4070/2012): “The installation of cookies is permitted only by the previous consent of the user and after appropriate informing him.”
COOKIES FOR WHICH CONSENT IS NOT REQUIRED
There are “C0ookies” that have been assessed by the Working Group of Article 29 as technically and functionally necessary to connect to the website or to provide the internet service. For these the law does not require prior consent.
These are (Wp29 Opinion 4/2012):
“Cookies” that are necessary to recognize and/or maintain content entered by the subscriber or visitor/user during a connection (session cookies) to a website throughout the duration of the specific connection. (For example, such “cookies” are necessary when the visitor/user fills in an electronic form).
The same category also includes “persistent” cookies that are installed for the same purpose and last for a few hours.
“Cookies” that are installed for the purpose of the security of the subscriber or visitor/user, such as “cookies” that detect repeated unsuccessful attempts to enter a user’s account on a specific website.
“Cookies” with multimedia content, such as flash player “cookies”, during a connection (session) to a website. Such are, for example, the “cookies” that are installed by viewing a video on the website visited by the visitor/user.
“Cookies” that “remember” the choices of the subscriber or visitor/user regarding the presentation of the website (e.g. “cookies” regarding the choice of language or the presentation of search results on a website).
“Cookies” that are installed through additional programs (plug-ins) on social network websites and relate to the sharing of content between certified members who have already logged in.
You can delete all cookies already on your computer, as well as set most browsers to prevent the installation of cookies. However, in this case, you may need to adjust some preferences yourself each time you visit a website, and some services may also not work.
