6. Security

VALASI acknowledges the importance of the issue regarding the safety of the users personal data and its e-transactions taking all necessary measures securing in this way its maximum possible safety. All information relating with personal data and transactions are considered safe and confidential. The e-shop’s security Is achieved in the following ways:

A. Customer identification: The codes used for a customer’s identification are two: e-mail, or username and password which provide an absolute safe access to personal data whenever they are used. The customer is the only person that has access to his/her data via the above codes being exclusively liable for the maintenance of their secrecy and hiding from third parties. In case of loss and leakage of the above information the customer must immediately advise VALASI, or otherwise VALASI is not liable for the use of the given password from an unauthorized party. We hereby recommend avoiding, for safety reasons, the use of the same and easily traced password (such as date of birth).

B. Securing the confidentiality of personal data transfer: In order to secure the confidentiality of the personal data transfer we use the encryption protocol SSL 2048-bit.

C. Automatic logoff: If an account remains inactive for more than allowed minutes, the account will automatically be logged off.

D. Encryption: An SSL 2048-bit encryption exists at all times when personal data is entered (password, addresses, telephones, credit cards etc). The encryption is valid for the information’s codification until its arrival to a certain receiver who may decrypt it by using the appropriate key. When the user/customer is placing an order and has signed-in with his/her username and password, all communication between the computer used and www.valasi.gr support system is ciphered with the use of the 2048 bits key, which means that each time information is transferred to the system, the browser initially ciphers it with the use of the 2048 bits key and then transfers it to the system. Confidentiality of transactions: The same principles that apply to in-store transactions are in force in the case of e-commerce. All information transferred from the user/member is confidential and VALASI takes all necessary measures so that its use is made only to the extent that is essential for the services provided. Some of the already taken measures are the following: Only the authorized employees have access to the information of transactions and only when it is absolutely necessary as e.g. for the processing of applications. VALASI does not disclose the data of the customers and their transactions unless it has a written authorization from you, or when a Court’s judgment orders it, or through the decision of another public authority. No information is used from third parties. You may ask any data that are kept from you and their correction as well in case you can document the existence of an error. For your own safety, you must handle all the information provided via the service as confidential and secret and to avoid disclosure to third parties.
