Due to recent changes in data protection legislation, all websites operating in certain parts of the European Union must obtain consent from visitors/users to use or store cookies (or similar technologies) on computers or on their mobile devices.
- What are cookies?
- Types of cookies
First-party and third-party cookies: Whether a cookie is “first-party” or “third-party” depends on the website (“domain”) that places the cookie. First-party cookies are those placed by a website visited by users at the time of said visit (e.g. Cookies placed directly by the ecotourismo.gr website).
Third-party cookies are cookies placed by a website other than the one the user is visiting. If a user visits a website and another entity places a cookie through that website, that would be a third-party cookie. The most common version of this type of cookie is the Google Analytics cookie, which you will see below.
Persistent cookies: These cookies remain on the user’s device for a period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated every time the user visits the website that created the specific cookie.
Session cookies (temporary cookies): These cookies allow website administrators to log user actions during a browser session. A browser session starts when the user opens the browser window and ends when the user closes the window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close your browser, all session cookies are deleted.
Performance Cookies: These cookies collect information about how you use a website – e.g. which pages you visit and if you experience any errors. These cookies do not collect any information that could identify you and are only used to help us improve the way our website works, understand what our users are interested in and calculate how effective our content is. Some performance cookies are managed by third parties.
