In case you are referred to another website beyond the website of the Cyprus DiSkiJO (e.g. Other Associates website), the privacy policy of each website shall apply. This privacy policy exclusively concerns the website of the Cyprus DiSkiJO.


In some cases, when visiting Cyprus DiSkiJO website cookies may be used. This is useful for the website to “remember” some of your choices and to maintain them when you revisit, for your own convenience. Additionally, cookies are used for the operation of Google Analytics, which is analysed below.

You may deactivate or clear the cookies from your computer, by adjusting accordingly the web browser you are using.

Matomo Analytics

Matomo, formerly Piwik, is a free and open-source web analytics application developed by a team of international developers, that runs on a PHP/MySQL webserver. It tracks online visits to one or more websites and displays reports on these visits for analysis.

Matomo ensures the privacy of the users and analytics data.  The data are controlled from the owner of the platform and nobody else does control the data. The data is stored in our own MySQL database, and logs or report data will never be sent to other servers by Matomo.

 Matomo will by default track the following information:

By default, IP Anonymisation is enabled in Matomo. This means Matomo stores in the database each new visitor IP address (ipv4 or ipv6 format) with the last components removed to protect user’s privacy. IP anonymisation is a good way to protect users with static IP address as otherwise their browsing history would be easily tracked across several days and even across websites tracked within the same Matomo server.
