What personal data this site collects
To make this site work properly, small data files called cookies may be placed on the user's device. Upon accessing this site (for the first time or e.g. if the user is using a different browser or an Incognito browser window), the user is informed about cookies (please refer to the "How to control cookies" section below).
A cookie is a small text file that a site saves on the user's computer or mobile device when the user visits the site. It enables the website to remember the user's actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so that the user doesn't have to keep re-entering them every time they come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
Generally, this is an openly accessible site, as no logging in is required for the public to access the presented information. However, if the user is an administrator or editor of the website, then cookies will need to be used to allow them to log into the administrator/editor control panel.
To help detect invaders who try to violate website security against hackers and, thus, protect the user's security as well.
For example, these technologies help authenticate access to the administrator/editor panel of this site and prevent unauthorised parties from accessing the administrator/editor accounts.
For example, cookies can help remember the user's preferred language or country that the user is in. This enables a website to provide content in the preferred language without having to ask the user each time they visit the site. In the case of this site, the language used is English (it is envisaged that, in the future, a version in Greek will be offered as well, to help make the website appeal to a broader audience).
For example, cookies can help a website administrator test different versions of the pages/content to see which particular features or content users prefer. In an effort to optimise and improve the user's experience on the site, cookies can be used to see how the user interacts with the pages of the site, such as when and how often they visit them and what links they click on. This site uses Google Analytics ⧉ and Statcounter.com ⧉ to assist with this. On their respective sites, there is more information available about their cookies.
To enable integration with social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, enabling social media interactions, for example, social media buttons embedded in the pages of this site can help the user directly interact with those pages (e.g. ‘Like’, ‘Share’, and/or ‘Tweet’ them). Note: this feature has currently been removed from this site.

If the user opts for this, however, they may have to manually adjust some preferences every time they visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.

Contacting the creator/author of this site
The user can contact the author/administrator/editor of this site through social media. If a user does not have a social media account, they can still send a message by email, by sending it to the AcropolisofAthens.gr Gmail address (Gmail is the electronic mail service by Google). The address comprises the main part of this site’s domain name (without the ‘.gr’ suffix) followed by the usual Gmail address suffix. Messages received on the AcropolisofAthens.gr social media and Gmail accounts are prevented from becoming public, by taking the normal, reasonable measures to protect these accounts by the use of secret security passwords.
