Utility of cookies
Cookies can perform many functions and are mainly used to measure the traffic of a website in its total or specific subpages only. Indicatively, the number of the visitors live or per hour of the day, their geographical origin, the operating system and the resolution of their computer screen, the page from which they were lead (via search engine, link from another page or direct entry), the keyword used in the search engine etc can be documented. Other cookies can remember, for the user’s convenience, the choice of language or the results of their search on a website. Others can record user’s failed attempting to login in a website, so that they (websites) can demand, after a certain number of failed login attempting, the further cross-checking of his details, for example by entering an additional code, sent to him by sms on his mobile phone.
The website under the domain name “travellersclub.gr”, now called “the website”, stores cookies in the terminal equipment of its visitors to improve their browsing of it, as well as to measure its traffic. These cookies do not put in danger users’ privacy and sensitive personal data.
CMS WordPress Cookies
1. The website is designed based on WordPress content management system (CMS), which by default stores cookies on the user’s computer to improve their browsing of the page. These are the cookies below:
Session cookies allow users to be recognized when browsing a website so that their various options can be remembered and transferred from subpage to subpage. The most common example of this feature is the shopping cart in online stores; when you add products to your cart, the session cookie remembers your options so that the products you selected are there when you are ready to pay; without the session cookie the page would not remember which exact products you added to your cart, so when you clicked “payment” your cart would be empty.
Although our page does not sell products, the session cookies it uses work in exactly the same way. Specifically, our website stores two session cookies: one which memorizes the choice of the page’s browsing language and one to remember user’s all other options. Both of the session cookies are automatically deleted from the user’s computer after his session is completed, which occurs after fifteen minutes of his last action on the webpage. These cookies are “first party cookies” which means they are placed and read by our website’s domain.

The functional value of the installation of this specific cookie is avoiding the inconvenience of granting the same consent each time you visit the website.
Mandatory consent for storing cookies
The installation and use of “cookies” is regulated in particular by paragraph 5 of article 4 of Law 3471/2006 (which transferred to the Greek legal order the Directive 2002/58/EC) according to which the installation and use of the “cookie” is permitted only with the consent of the user.
