You will learn what the terms mean, how cookies work, and what you need to do to have your business legally covered.

What are Cookies?

The type of information contained in these files, and whether they can be considered personal data, is an important point to consider from a legal point of view. This is also the reason given in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Privacy

The use of cookies is a multidimensional issue, with legal, technical and commercial aspects. Their operation is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the ePrivacy Directive in order to protect the personal data of your web visitors.

The current context is not entirely clear due to many technical parameters such as:

  • If cookies transmit data to the website itself or to a third party.
  • If the cookies are deleted after the “closing” of the browser or continue to send information after that.

In short, what is valid today is that the installation of cookies is allowed only in case it is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, the user’s consent is required after being properly informed.

Frequent questions

The following frequently asked questions about the GDPR transactions we made on Paramarketing SEO Agency’s customer sites.

All the buttons on the banner of my site have the same color. If we put a bright color in “I accept” would not the user be more likely to click accept?

Yes! The user would be much more likely to click accept. However, this practice is not in line with current legislation.

Can I use a GDPR tool provided by free internet companies?

We would like to point out that many tools provided free of charge do not meet the technical specifications of the GPDR Personal Data Act, nor the published Regulation of the Personal Data Protection Authority.

In practice, what does it mean if a user clicks “I do not accept”?

Then the site will work normally but will not “load” the cookies that are not necessary for the operation, such as the Google Analytics service for the purpose of statistical analysis.

I do not like the banner, nor do I want to align with the GDPR and the Personal Data Protection Authority. Many sites have a simple update for consent. Can you remove it?

Of course! Just inform us in writing at info@paramarketing.gr. We would like to recommend that you consult your legal advisor about the consequences of any sampling.

Do I need to seek legal advice?

Of course! A lawyer might find imperfections and may want to make changes to the texts, depending on your company’s overall alignment with the GDPR. We are at his disposal for these changes. Paramarketing SEO Agency does not provide legal advice.

How can the user change his preferences?

As required by law, the user must be able to easily change the cookie settings. For this, at the bottom right of the screen, we added a box to change the preferences.

The best mobile phones for 2022

If you do not want to waste time searching and analyzing for days what are the best mobile phones for 2022 – θήκες κινητών – , the following list was created for you. More specifically, it is the only one in Greece that has been renewed for years with the best smartphones. Also, the list has its drawbacks as no mobile phone is perfect.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 2022

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE when it was first released in the Greek market did not move anyone. because its price was high for no reason. However, this seems to have changed, since its price went downhill in just a few days and now everyone can find it up to € 550.

It is clearly a flagship killer with strong technical characteristics, but also one of the few phones on the list of the best phones, which is waterproof with IP68 protection! If you are looking for a device, the Galaxy S21 FE should definitely be among your options.

Finally, it is almost certain according to Samsung’s history that it will get 3 “big” upgrades, while it is already released with Android 12.

Xiaomi Mi 11i

One of the best mobile phones as a whole and Killer of Realme GT.
Xiaomi’s Mi 11i costs just over € 500, but it comes with the best available at this price. It wears the SnapDragon 888, ie chipset for flagships that we see up to twice the cost.

It has a large battery, a strong screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz and its most important advantage is that it easily puts down its direct competitor, the Realme GT. Unfortunately, Realme did not manage to stand out with any device this year. Finally, the Mi 11i even offers standard water protection (slightly waterproof) with IP53 certification.

Asus ZenFone 8

Asus with the announcement of ZenFone 8 impressed, since it is the first time we see a small device in size from Asus and in fact with a strong price and features. It lags almost nowhere and is the only proposal that is worth the money it asks for (up to 600 euros) and at the same time it is completely waterproof. It wears the most powerful Qualcomm chipset, namely the SnapDragon 888.

Xiaomi Poco F3

The Poco F3 is without a doubt the best device one could buy in 2021 if one wants to focus exclusively on the TechValue (VFM) term and is looking for a gaming mobile. There is nothing stronger than 300 euros to buy from China without customs.

Apart from the power, the next possible point is the screen since it is OLED technology with strong brightness that reaches 1300 nits, but also a refresh rate of 120Hz. Finally, the powerful SnapDragon 870 that it wears is sure not to disappoint the user in any process, the Poco F3 comfortably entered among the best mobile phones.

OnePlus 9

The OnePlus 9 is a device that can be considered almost a flagship. He wears what Qualcomm has to offer at the moment and comes with the best and lightest Android skin there is.

If you are interested in the UI, performance and build quality but without paying “air” as for example samsung asks for a corresponding mobile phone, then the OnePlus 9 suits you perfectly. Also OnePlus is one of the few companies that without announcing it many times offers 3 big (3 years) upgrades to its mobile phones.

Samsung Galaxy A52 5G

If what you are looking for is a mobile phone that you could easily hold for up to 3-4 years, the Galaxy A52 5G might be right for you. Most Android smartphones receive about 2 major upgrades (one each year), but Samsung in the case of the A52 5G announced 3 major upgrades making the difference.

This feature combined with the IP68 protection that makes it waterproof is a phone that you could definitely keep without being disappointed.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite

The Mi 10 Lite is the best and most competitive mid-range proposal close to the sum of € 250 for the year 2022.

It wears SnapDragon 765G like many branded smartphones at double the cost and its photographic capabilities are correspondingly powerful. Although economical, it supports next generation 5G networks.

It has an OLED screen, but also a fingerprint sensor under the screen. If this is your budget, then the Mi 10 Lite is a one-way street, there is nothing better.

OnePlus 8T

The OnePlus 8T is the latest flagship killer flagship to be announced in late 2020. That’s why it comes with Android 11 from the factory as opposed to its competitors wearing 10. This means that 2021 will get Android 12 and 2022 Android 13. In terms of technical features it does not lag behind at all and is a good choice for purchase from China at around € 450.

Problems and proper sewer maintenance

Προβλήματα και σωστή συντήρηση βόθρων

At Αποφράξεις Αντωνίου, we know very well about the problems and proper sewer maintenance. A problem that is not encountered by homeowners in cities, which have a central wastewater treatment system. But you will find it in all the houses in areas outside the city plan. Also in those located near the sea and the countryside.

Urban homes tend to be connected as a whole to a municipal sewer system. On the contrary, many cottages and older rural houses use an autonomous septic system to manage their waste. Unlike sewage systems, a septic system requires regular maintenance due to the way it handles our waste.

This can be costly, especially if you work through a waste management company. However, you can save money by maintaining your septic system yourself.

The operation of septic systems

A septic system consists of two main parts: a well or, as it said, a septic tank and also a drainage field. The more up to date systems nowdays make use of a septic tank, in addition of using a well for having a better performance, although there are older homes that still make use of wells. Although it is at it’s most the same idea, there are some small design differences that can lead us to different problems.

Modern days septic tank

We are talking about a large and usually underground tank, that is connected in a direct way to the main sewer line of the house. When we rinse our toilet or let the water run into our sink, then the sewage flows throught the pipes into the tank. There we have a type of anaerobic bacteria that digest it. This type of process divides our waste into three different parts.

We have the solid wastes, that sink to the pit bottom. Then the lighter particles goes on the surfaceform and form residues . As we have more sewage discharged into the pit, the old water pushed inside the sewer pipes. Then it can flows safely into the field that surrounds the home. While townhouses tend to be connected to a municipal sewer system, many cottages and older farmhouses use a stand-alone septic system for waste management.

Septic tanks of older type

In older septic systems with a good foundation, there is a large pit which is lined with masonry. This well is usually covered by a concrete plate. The sewage of our family flows into the well, instead of going to a tank. As they enter the well, the anaerobic bacteria that  it contains, begin to feed with the wastewater.

Solid waste as a whole is submerged and then residues are formed, which take place along the surface. Unlike tanks, which have pipes leading to a drainage field, in this case the walls of the well have small openings, through which water flows into the surrounding soil. As this process is not as effective as with septic tanks, septic tanks are now illegal in some countries.

Common problems with septic systems

As a general rule, septic systems require little maintenance throughout the year. Therefore it is natural to neglect their maintenance. This can lead to problems that may cause adverse conditions, such as flooding our yard, or even returning to our home from the septic tank. Obstructions and a full septic tank are the two most common problems you will encounter.

Clogged septic tanks

Sewer wells are based on bacteria to separate solid and liquid waste, however this process may not be perfect. Over time, the openings in our septic tank can become clogged, thus causing the creation of backup sewage. If not kept clean, the septic tank can be pumped several times a year.

This can happen even when there is not much solid waste at the bottom. The reason you cause is the inability of water to escape.

Symptom of a full septic tank

In case that is not cleaned within three to five years, our septic tank can be filled to such an extent with solid waste that can overflow. One of the most innocent of the harmful signs, is a persistent bad smell, usually near the tank or inside your bathroom. This putrid odor can be more noticeable during the summer months due to bad weather.

One other common symptom is the one of a slow drain, or maybe an often clogged toilet. Sewer blockage cleaners will prove ineffective if the problem is with the septic tank and not with a simple drain blockage. The continuous use of the toilet without

Remember that it is best to leave the operation of a septic system to specialists. They are the right people, who have at their disposal beyond the knowledge and the necessary tools, so that they can effectively and safely perform the problems of the wells of your home.
