We are a single-owner “Michail Polimeneris/Computer Inn” establishment, incorporated under the laws of Greece with company registration number 17289/1989, whose registered office is at 70, Akti Moutsopoulou, Piraeus 18536 Greece, ("we", "us", or "our").

We are dedicated to establishing a trusting relationship with our Users, based on respect for personal identity and information and by promoting the use of fair information practices. We want to demonstrate our commitment to our Users' privacy and establish our Users' trust in our ability to protect their information.

2. This Privacy Policy

For residents of the EU, please note that this Privacy Policy has been updated in accordance with the requirements of EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR").

We provide a number of Products and Services and to do this we need to collect, store, use and disclose a wide range of information. This Privacy Policy describes how we and our authorized business partners, affiliates and agents process information, particularly personal data, that we receive from you and others through your use of our website, apps, software, Services and other related technology ("Products"). This Privacy Policy sets out:

  1. The information we collect.
  2. How we use the information.
  3. The legal bases we rely on to collect this information.
  4. With whom we share information.
  5. The choices available to Users regarding collection, use and distribution of the information.
  6. The types of security procedures that are in place to protect information under our control.
  7. A User's rights, how a User can contact us and update or correct any inaccuracies in their information that we collect.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully so that you understand our approach and practices regarding your personal data and other information and how we treat it. Please do not use our Products and Services if you do not agree with the ways in which we will process your information. We appreciate that you may not want to give us particular information about you but please be aware that this may lead to us not being able to provide you with the Products or Services you need or our desired level of customer Service.

PART B - INFORMATION COLLECTION

For the purpose of the GDPR, we are the controller of your personal data.

We collect information from our Users at several different points on our Products and Services, in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation and other applicable data protection laws, strictly for the purposes necessary to our business and our Users' convenience.

All information will be obtained fairly. The information we collect will be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purposes for which it was obtained. These purposes include:

1. Registration

In order to use the paid subscription version of our Products and Services, a User must first complete the Registration Form or the Contract. During registration, a User is required to provide contact information (such as name and email address). We may also collect the User's internet protocol (IP) address and hardware ID.

2. Ordering and Payment

We may use a distribution partner(s) and a trusted third party payment processor(s) to help us manage ordering, invoicing and processing of payments for our Products and Services. When a User pays for a subscription to, or purchases, one of our Products or Services, the User has to enter information through an online order form or to provide it in a contract sheet or mail. A User, or someone in the User's organization, must provide contact information (such as name, company name, telephone number, email, and billing address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). We and our distribution partners and third-party payment processors may also collect the User's internet protocol (IP) address and hardware ID. We may request and receive from the distribution partner and third party payment processor a copy of the payment history between the User and us.

When a User provides their information to our distribution partner or third party payment processor, use of the User's personal data is governed by that third party's terms of service and privacy policy. A link to both the terms of Service and to the privacy policy is provided on the purchase form. A User must agree to both of these before they purchase or subscribe to our Products and Services acquired in conjunction with our distribution partners or third party payment processors.

We may receive a User's financial information (such as the credit card type, expiration date, and the last four digits of the credit card number) from the third party payment processor, along with other personal data. The third party payment processor may also provide us with unique authentication tokens to make payment requests. This information is used to make payment requests or to register the User for an auto-renewing subscription that requires automatic payments in the future.

3. Supplementation of Information

In order for us to properly fulfill our obligations to Users, it may be necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from third party sources. For example, we may verify the billing address on credit card transactions. The information obtained from these third party sources is maintained by us in a manner consistent with our Privacy Policy.

4. When Using Our Products and Services

We collect and use the information a User directly provides to us or one of our trusted partners, such as the information a User provides when they access, use or purchase our Products and Services, information about how a User accesses and uses our Products and Services, and information a User provides when communicating with us, including for customer support. We may also process and analyse information from the scans a User conducts using our Products and Services or third parties tools and utilitirs, as further described in Section 5 (Information from Scans) below.

If a User is using a paid subscription Product or Service, their Username and Password is sent and received during each communication for security, authentication and verification purposes and to help resolve billing disputes. Payment card and other financial information is collected by us and our third party payment processors.

To facilitate renewal or reinstatement of a subscription we or our third party payment processors may also retain non-financial contact information and support and scan logs for customers whose licenses have expired.

5. Information from Scans

Reports: When a scan for viruses and internet threats is started, or an attack is attempted, a diagnostic report from the User's system will be transmitted to us. We collect this information for the purposes of diagnosing existing threats, identifying new threats, providing customer support and for tracking the origin of malware infections.

Program Classification Information: We are using third parties utilities in order to identify potentially unwanted or harmful files, programs and software. To help accomplish this, we receive and analyse data on unknown executable files that a User attempts to launch or access, and examine files and programs that start automatically or that are active on the User's system. Once we identify those files and programs, we are taking actions based on the estimation of the threat they pose.

6. Licensing, Versioning and Maintenance Server Log Files

Our servers use log files to analyse trends, administer our Products and Services, track the different locations a User may use our Products and Services in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. This information may include IP addresses, geolocation information, hardware ID, browser type, internet Service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.

7. Flash LSOs

We may use Local Shared Objects (LSOs), such as Flash, to store content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our website or to display advertising based upon a User's web browsing activity may use LSOs such as Flash to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs. To manage Flash LSOs, please visit https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html.

Third Party Cookies

Some Cookies that have been set on our Services may not be related to or controlled by us and may originate from one of our partners, affiliates or service providers. We do not control the use of these Cookies and cannot access them due to the way Cookies work, as Cookies can only be accessed by the party which originally set them.

You always have a choice as to whether or how you interact with an advertisement (for example, by clicking to learn more about an offer). We may place ads for our Products on other Products we provide or on various third party websites and platforms, and as a result, you may see ads for our Products when visiting Google, YouTube, Facebook, and/or a variety of other websites and platforms. We may ask the proprietors of these websites/platforms to present our ads to particular demographic groups. The third party websites and platforms may use information they already have about the User, or may place cookies or similar tracking technologies in the User's browser, in order to decide what ads the User will see, including potentially our ads. If a User has questions or concerns about the ads they see on any of these third party websites/platforms or if they have questions generally about their privacy practices, we encourage them to consult the privacy policies of those sites or enquire with the proprietors of those sites.

1. Sharing of Information

We will share the information we collect from you with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy. We do not sell or rent your personal data to third parties.

The information we collect from you may be transferred to third parties in connection with operating our business. It may also be processed by these third parties and/or by our and their respective employees and Service providers. We will take steps to ensure that these third parties will only process data in accordance with our instructions, and take appropriate security measures to protect your data.

By submitting your information, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing of your personal data by us.

We may disclose your information to the following third parties:

Where required or authorised by law, we reserve the right to release personal data without your consent and/or without consulting you, when we believe that this is appropriate to comply with our legal obligations, to protect the security of our Products, Services, systems and related technologies, to prevent and minimise the effects of fraud, and otherwise to protect our legitimate interests and/or the legitimate interests of our staff, Users or members of the public.

2. International Data Transfers

Data may be transferred to or from our third party Service providers for legitimate purposes as described in this Privacy Policy. This may include the transfer of data to other jurisdictions for processing at a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA) which may not provide the same level of protection of personal data as within the EEA. By submitting your personal data or using our Products and Services, you agree to this transfer, storage and processing.

PART E - THIRD PARTY LINKS AND CONTENT

1. Links

When using our Products or Services, you may be redirected to third party websites, for example, to our payment processor's website to complete your payment. Your use of these websites and any associated Services will be subject to these third parties' terms of use, privacy policies and cookie policies. Please review the specific privacy policy and terms of conditions of these websites, as we are not responsible for them. 

2. Surveys

Periodically, our site may request information from Users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the User therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as post code or zip code). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of our Products and Services. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys, they may not use customers' personal data for any secondary marketing purposes.

3. Blog

Our website may offer publicly accessible blogs. Any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personal data from our blogs or community forum, contact us at the address shown at the end of this Privacy Policy. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal data, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.

Our website may include social media features, such as a Facebook "Like" button and widgets, such as a "Share This" button or interactive mini-programs that run on our site. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

PART F – SECURITY AND THE PROTECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

We take precautions that we deem to be reasonably necessary to help ensure User information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This includes encrypting your information at rest using 256-bit AES encryption, wherever it is vital, two (2) level Entrance Codes with operational hierarchy to Apps for our internal use (like Accounting and Reporting). We seek to ensure that we keep your personal data accurate and up-to-date.

When our registration/order forms ask Users to enter financial information, such as a credit card number, that information is encrypted and is protected with an encryption protocol. Most modern web browsers should indicate when a User is on a secure page, for example some web browsers show a locked padlock icon at the bottom of the screen.

While we take these steps to maintain the security of your information, you should be aware of the many information security risks that exist and take appropriate care to help safeguard your information. The nature of the internet is such that we cannot guarantee the security of the information you transmit to us electronically, and any transmission is at your own risk. We store information you provide to us on secure servers and deploy appropriate technical and organisational security measures in the storage and disclosure of your personal data to try to prevent unauthorised access or loss.

If you pay for a subscription or contract to our Products and Services we also rely on you to maintain the security of your account with us.

If you have any questions about our security, you can contact us at the address shown at the end of this Privacy Policy.
