What information do we collect?

We collect personal information of our current and prospective clients through our website. We never collect information in person or through any other means. Invoicing information is collected by our vendor partner 2Checkout through the shopping cart page and is exclusively stored on 2Checkout's web servers.

Minitek.gr is committed to protecting your privacy and processing your personally identifiable information with transparency. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Please note that we need your explicit consent to store and process your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You can revoke your consent at any time by sending a request via the contact form. If you do not consent we are unable to provide our services to you and we cannot let you use the members-only (logged in) version of our site.

Minitek.gr may change this policy by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you agree with any changes.

User Registration

When registering on our website, you are asked to enter your name and email address.

Invoicing information

The invoicing information is not stored on our servers. It is handled exclusively by our vendor partner 2Checkout.

When purchasing a product you are asked by our eCommerce provider 2Checkout to enter your first and last name, your address, city, zip or postal code, country, state or province and email. If you are making a purchase on behalf of a company, you are also asked to provide company name, VAT ID, phone number and FAX number. In some payment options you may be asked to enter credit card data.

2Checkout provides a secure and reliable platform for selling our software products online. Your private data is 100% safe, as 2Checkout complies with the latest online security standards. Starting May 25th 2018, our eCommerce provider 2Checkout will be GDPR compliant.

Help Center

When asking for support via our Help Center, we may ask for information that will allow us to connect to your website (FTP access and administrator access). We use that information to provide you with technical support. Please note that we do explicitly tell you to give us temporary access to your website, therefore we do not have any responsibility if you failed to revoke our access since your post was closed.

When filing a public post you have no reasonable expectation of privacy and as such any information volunteered in a public post is not subject to our Privacy Policy.

Forum Posts

We use any information that you volunteer by submitting a forum post, to respond to your request.

Content Notifications

When you subscribe to content change notifications, if you don't have an account on our website, you are asked to enter your name and email address. If you already have an account on our website, then we process your name and email in order to send you email notifications about content changes.

IP Address

Your IP address is temporarily collected whenever you are accessing our website in our web server's logs, our security software's logs and our download system's logs (only when downloading through our site or when downloading updates of our software). This information is used to ensure the security of our website and to prevent abuse. IP address information is not directly identifiable information but if it's stored in conjunction with your user account ID it might be an indirect identifier.

Your IP address in the context of security and abuse prevention is specifically exempt from requiring your consent per the European Union's GDPR. We are legally required to ensure the security of your personal information through any appropriate technical means and that includes collecting your IP address in that context.
