FOR PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION
WHO WE ARE
Naxos Cultural Tours (hereinafter NCT) is a boutique tour operator and our website address is: www.naxosculturaltours.gr.
WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 email@example.com.
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.
