2. Personal Data
2.1. What Personal Data do we collect when you visit the omilo.com website
Most of our services do not require any form of registration, allowing you to visit our site without telling us who you are. However, some services may require you to provide us with Personal Data. (name, email address….)
Information entered in forms
There are pages with forms where you can request information, receive an eBook or Newsletter. The type of personal information that is collected in these forms includes: name, surname, email, telephone, level of Greek and sometimes credit card information (only when you buy an eBook or want to pay for a course and select credit card as a means of payment).
For those services, if you choose to withhold any Personal Data requested by us, it may not be possible for you to register for a course or gain access to certain parts of the site and for us to respond to the query. (For ex. registration for a Greek language course, downloading free eBooks, subscribing to the monthly newsletter, membership sign up)
Collection of user data on a registration form for booking a language course in Greece.
For the correct processing of enrolments and course reservations we use an online registration form. For those forms, we collect data such as: first name, surname, email address, postal code, place of residence, telephone number, nationality, language, gender, profession, date of birth. This information is used by omilo.com to identify the student and to provide him/her with support, services, mailings, billing and to meet contractual obligations.
Also, for our language courses it helps us to decide how we will teach a class or form a class, by asking you your age, gender, mother tongue, profession, language level, etc…These are all factors that many times gives us more background information on how we could teach our language lessons, in order to get better results.
If you prefer we delete those data after you have attended a course, you can simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Photos and Videos

If you explicitly do not want to be on any of these photos, please let us know in advance by email and/or at the school director on the first day of the course. And when anyone of the school staff takes a photo and you don’t want to be on it, you just remind the person taking the photo, and the photo will be deleted.
