Privacy policy

Our website collects and stores (minimal) information about its users through its contact and registration forms (only if used).

The data is provided by the user and includes the name and email. This information is used for communication between the website and the user himself. It's not shared with anyone (other users, third parties etc.).

We use Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a service (by Google) that tracks and reports website traffic and provides important information about website visitors (that's you). Whenever someone visits a website that uses Google Analytics (like zachariou.edu.gr), Google tracks Information like how the visitor came to the site, what pages were visited, what type of computer he/she used (e.g. laptop, smartphone, etc.) and much more.

This information is important because it allows website owners (that's us) to better understand which users visit zachariou.edu.gr and what content they are interested in. This is essential in order to improve the design and content of our site.

Google Analytics data is non-personally identifiable information, we're not sharing it with third parties and it's strictly used for site optimization and improvement.

If you want to prevent the use of your data from Google Analytics, Google provides a browser add-on (more info).

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the user's computer, allowing a website to remember its actions and preferences.

We use cookies for the following:

  • User activity stats. These cookies collect information about how visitors use our site in order to optimize it and provide a better user experience. For example, they allow us to see which pages are popular among visitors, let us know if users experience problems while navigating the site, etc. These statistics are centralized and therefore anonymous.
  • Google Analytics. Google uses first-party cookies to report on visitor (aka. user) interactions on websites that use Google analytics (like zachariou.edu.gr). You can prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics via the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
  • Facilitate navigation and interaction with the site. For example, you can save your username and password when you login to your account, so you do not have to enter them each time.
  • Protection from abuse and/or spam. For example, we use Google reCAPTCHA on contact forms (Google privacy policy).
  • Social media sharing. For instance, we use Facebook "Like" and "Share" buttons.
