Definitely. That license is waaaay too vague as is.

We'd need to know if:

1. Modification is permitted
2. Redistribution is permitted (this is implied, but not explicitly
granted)
3. Redistribution in embedded documents is permitted

That's just for starters. The commercial copyright "advertising" clause
is also painfully vague.

Someone motivated (and likely, fluent in greek), should email the
copyright holders and suggest that they either clarify their license, or
consider relicensing it with an established free license (e.g. the OFL).
