The user has the right to enter into a valid contract for the provision of services-products through the Website provided that the user possesses legal capacity in compliance with the provisions of the Greek Civil Code (if the user has reached eighteen years of age and therefore does not require legal assistance in order to enter into a service contract for the provision of services-products).

- Registration for Services and Products.
Transactions involving products and services offered by the Company on its website require that users follow the following two steps:
Step #1: “Registration and Payment”:
Next, the user registration process is completed as follows:
- a) a verification e-mail is automatically sent to identify the e-mail address the user has just declared; and
- b) The user’s online navigation programme is automatically redirected by the software of the Company Website to the PayPal website for the completion of the payment process for the requested services-products.
In order to avoid any data interception by malware, the user must follow the general security rules recommended by PayPal, including, inter alia, the rule that before entering payment card details or PayPal username and password, the user must verify that the user’s computer is securely connected to the real website of PayPal. It is hereby expressly stated that the Company is in no way liable for any interception of the above data (PayPal payment card details or PayPal account username and password) by a third party due to malware or in any other way during this process. Users bear sole responsibility for maintaining their computer or other electronic device in good condition and protected from malware by using security software and following sound practices of safe internet browsing.
Step #2: “Login and use of services-products”:
It is hereby clarified that each service-product provided by the Company can be replaced by another of similar content and purpose.
The user who has selected services-products that include instructor supervision may send digital image files and submit questions to the instructor by selecting the relevant “browse” or “communication” fields. These files are only accessible to the instructor, who communicates with the user by sending images and messages to which the user has access by selecting the fields “my drawings” and “communication”. The material the user sends is processed by the user’s instructor alone. The purpose of the editing exclusively concerns the educational processes relevant to the specific user. The material sent by the user to the user’s instructor is stored on the host computer that hosts the Website of the Company (wordpress.com), as well as temporarily on the computer or electronic device belonging to the user’s instructor. Upon completion of the course, the material that the user has sent to the user’s instructor is deleted both from the server that hosts the Company website and from the instructor’s computer or electronic device.
- Payment Process – Security of Transactions.
For the purpose of payment for the services selected by the user, no personal information is requested by the Company. The Website of the Company uses special PayPal software for redirection to the latter’s website, where payment is completed. After having been redirected to its site, PayPal itself, in full knowledge of the identity of the Company from which the redirection originated, requests the identification of the user with the user information available to PayPal in its records. The user then confirms the debit of the user’s account through a process guaranteed by PayPal. The Company has no involvement in this process. Upon completion of the transfer of funds, the user acquires the right to receive the product-service requested and paid for by the user. The Company is then informed by PayPal with regard to the payment and the user who made it. The data disclosed by PayPal to the Company is used by the Company exclusively for compliance with cross-border tax legislation. As part of this compliance, additional information may be requested from the user via the e-mail address declared to the Company by the user during the registration process. The information that is normally used for the user’s personal access to the Company’s services and products include: name, surname, home address and e-mail, where required. Access to services-products for professional purposes requires the use of all of the above data as well as the user’s professional identification number (EIN and VAT number) and the user’s full relevant postal address. Users who require access to the products-services of the Company for professional purposes are required to notify the Company of this professional capacity. Otherwise, such users will be understood as private users.
Cancellation of the product-service chosen by the user is possible within a period of ten (10) days from registration, provided the service-product has not been used. The return of the transaction price is made with the exception of the return of any bank or third-party fees or costs (PayPal).
In order to cancel an order, the user sends a written request to the e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. For any additional information the user may require, the user may contact the Company either by the e-mail address connected to the Company’s PayPal account, or in the contact details listed on the Company Website.
With the exception of the rights provided by the exchange policy, all rights applicable to consumers are recognized in each case by the existing provisions and laws relating to the service-product contract, as well as any rights arising in connection with the warranty terms of any existing guarantors.
