Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is: https://hpsaf.gr.

This Online Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains what personal information is collected through our website and online services, how that information is used, to whom it’s disclosed, and how it’s safeguarded. Unless indicated otherwise, this Policy applies only to personal information collected through our website. By “personal information” we mean information that relates to you, an individual user of our Services, including information that can be used directly to identify you (including name, home address, and email address), as well as other information (like tastes and preferences) when coupled with your identifying information. We refer to HPSAF as “we,” “us,” or “our” throughout this Policy.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

1. Information You Actively Provide through our e-shop

You actively provide personal information when you visit our e-shop to do all the things typically associated with online orders. Examples of the personal information we collect include name, address, phone number, email address, personal preferences, payment card number, purchase and ordering information, demographic information and any other information you choose to provide.  You know what information you directly provide, because you are affirmatively and actively submitting the information.

We may also collect information that you provide on our e-shop about people you know. For example, we collect your gift recipient’s contact information to process your gift orders. We may also collect contact information about your friends and family members when you participate in one of our refer-a-friend programs. In these instances, we may send a message to your friend or family member on your behalf. Please ensure that you only submit email addresses of individuals with whom you have a personal or family relationship and who would want to receive the message from you.

2. Information Your Devices Provide Automatically


You may provide information about your location when you access our website. 


When you access our e-shop, your computer, phone, or other device provides navigational information, such as browser type and version, service-provider identification, IP address, the site or online service from which you came, and the site or online service to which you navigate.


You also provide information about the computer or mobile device used to access our e-shop, operating system and version, identification numbers assigned to your mobile device, such as the ID for Advertising (IDFA) on Apple devices, and the Advertising ID on Android devices,  and website behaviour.


To better understand how you interact with our e-shop, we may collect information using cookie and similar technologies. We deliver a customised experience and do not currently respond to “Do Not Track” signals of web browsers.

A cookie is a small amount of data that’s stored by your browser on your device. It’s used to do things like see how you navigate our Services, what you click on, remember you and your online purchases when you return, and recognise you and show a special deal for you, when you redeem one of our offers from a third party’s site. This helps us improve and deliver our Services, provide better customer service, tailor and improve your online experience, and tailor offers to you based on your unique tastes and both your online and offline (e.g., in-store) interactions and purchase history.

Cookies and similar technologies also allow us to associate your online navigational information, or purchases and interactions (both online and offline), with any personal information you provide (such as name, address, phone number, survey responses, and email address). We’ll associate this information to deliver products and services to you, to improve our business, to transact business, and to market our products and services on this and other online services, and through a variety of media like email, mobile advertising, and direct mail. As an example, we may use cookies to keep track of what you put into your shopping bag. That can help us contact you if your online session is disrupted in mid-purchase, resulting in an abandoned cart. We can also use this technology to determine whether you’d be interested in participating in special events, given your preferences. The end result is a more personalised experience that’s tailored to your needs and tastes.

For information about your options with respect to cookies, see What choices do you have over how your information is used? below.
