(hereinafter: the company
The company is the owner and provider of the website https://e-learning.site/
(hereinafter: the website or online store).
A data protection officer has not yet been appointed by the company. You can send your enquiries regarding the processing and protection of personal data to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. The legal bases and purposes of personal data processing and what data we process:
1.1. Based on negotiations for the conclusion of a contract or a concluded contract:
We process personal data in order to carry out concluded contracts (e.g. for the performance of web development services) between the company and our customers:
a) communication with you when you contact us (e.g. when you file out a questionnaire, contact us via e-mail, telephone or the built-in dialog box on the website), whereby mainly process: - the contact details of the website visitor (e-mail address and possibly also telephone number) who contacted us.
b) for the purposes of performing the service in respect of which we have reached an agreement / concluded a contract (e.g. when we create your website we process certain personal data for this purpose), in particular we process: - the contact details of the client (e-mail address and possibly also telephone number) and any other information that is specifically agreed upon in the framework of a concluded personal data processing agreement.
If in the cases described above, you provided us with personal information as part of your contractual obligations or through contract negotiations (e.g. concluding a distance contract for the purchase of our products or requesting information about our products, etc.), we are not required to obtain your explicit consent for processing your personal data in such situations.
If in certain cases where the processing of personal data is based on a contractual relationship we have with you (or which you desire to enter into), you do not provide us with the required data, this will in principle have no consequences for you. However, such situations may make our cooperation more difficult or even impossible (e.g. we cannot sell our products without processing your delivery details or the necessary data for issuing the invoice), whereby we shall try to duly notify you prior or after the occurrence of such situations.
1.2. Based on our requirement to comply with a legal obligation:
The company also processes personal data in order to comply with its legal obligations particularly those governing taxes and accounting (e.g. records of issued and received invoices, etc.):- when possible legal requirements exist under which we might be required to forward personal data to a duly appointed public authority or third party citing relevant parts of the applicable legislation and based on their explicit request (e.g. in the context of the implementation of inspections under the provisions of the Slovenian Consumer Protection Act (ZVPOT) and the Slovenian Inspection Control Act (ZIN),- when the company processes the personal data of a customer to whom it had issued an invoice, the company processes these data (e.g. personal name, contact details, etc.) on the basis of the Slovenian Value Added Tax Act (ZDDV-1) (see section 3.2.) etc.
1.3. Based on your explicit consent:
The company may also process your personal data on the basis of your explicit consent. The explicit consent of the visitor of the website or the buyer is considered to be his voluntary declaration of will, with which he agrees to the processing of certain personal data for a certain purpose, e.g.:
- marketing communication with people who are not yet our customers * (if we have obtained your explicit consent for this purpose on our website, etc.), whereby we process information on the person who gave their consent, namely their contact details (email address) for the purposes of sending customized advertising messages or "newsletters".
*Receiving this kind of communication can be cancelled at any time by following the link contained in each email message, or by contacting us at email@example.com.
- Showing online ads to visitors who have agreed with the installation of optional (advertising) cookies which are provided by our advertising partners (e.g. installation of the Google Analytics cookie, which makes it easier for us to advertise our products on other websites, etc.) (see section 3.4.1.). The exact list of optional cookies which are provided by our advertising partners, the data that is processed, as well as their retention periods is available on the subpage "Cookies" - https://e-learning.site/cookies/.
Cooperating with us and using the services of our company are not, in principle, conditioned on your consent for the processing of personal data, insofar as this is not logically required for the performance of such services or required for cooperation (see section 1.1. of this chapter).
The company guarantees each individual the right to easily revoke his express consent at any time i.e. by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org (see section 5.1.).
The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing that had been carried out on the basis of such consent until the moment of its withdrawal.
In the event that you do not give consent for the processing of personal data, give it in part or revoke the consent (as a whole or in part), we will, where possible, cooperate with you only to the extent of your consent or in the ways permitted by applicable law.
Consent is voluntary and if you choose not to give it, or revoke it later, this in no way interferes with your other rights that might arise from the business relationship you have with our company, or constitutes additional costs or aggravating circumstances for you.
1.4. Based on the legitimate interests of the company
Certain personal data may be processed for the purpose of securing our legitimate interests, e.g.:
- for example, where the processing of your data would be necessary in order for us to secure our operations e.g. protect our business against potential fraud or required in inspection procedures that are carried out by duly appointed public authorities or litigious and other procedures, we will process only those data that are strictly necessary to pursue these legitimate interests of our company.
The company may also process the personal data of an individual in cases where the processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of such individual or other natural persons (e.g. reviewing the address of an individual who is in imminent and serious danger in connection with the purchased product).
2. How long do we store or process your personal data?
The period of retention of personal data depends on the legal basis and purpose of processing. Personal data is kept for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the data was collected, or as long as a regulation requires that we must keep it, e.g.:
we keep personal data of customers on invoices for 10 years from the day they were issued, as this requirement is imposed on the company by the Slovenian Value Added Tax Act (ZDDV-1),
- based on a concluded contract for example, data is processed for the duration of the contract or for another six years after the termination of the contract (if, for example, processing is necessary because there is a dispute between the individual and the company, etc.),
- based on your explicit consent to receive market communications or our legitimate interest to advertise to people who are already our customers, we keep and process the data until such person withdraws his consent.
Personal data shall be deleted, destroyed, blocked or anonymized after the purpose of processing has been fulfilled or consent has been withdrawn.

8. Processing of personal data of persons under 18 years of age and persons with limited or deprived legal capacity
The company does not accept orders from persons under the age of 18 or persons with limited or deprived legal capacity. All such persons must leave the website immediately before confirming the installation of cookies, making a purchase or other performing other interactions with the website.
The purchase process was created following the principle of personal data minimization, whereby the company does not collect the age of its visitors or customers and any data relating to their legal capacity. As a result, the company does not have the means to economically and efficiently verify whether the use of the website, the execution of the purchase contract and the subsequent processing of the submitted personal data entail the processing of personal data of a person that is younger than 18 years of age or a person who does not have full legal capacity.
As a result, the company does not knowingly offer its products to persons under the age of 18 or persons with limited or deprived legal capacity and does not knowingly process any personal data related to them.
If the company subsequently finds out that it has processed the personal data of a person who is under the age of 18 or a person with limited or deprived legal capacity without the consent of his parent or guardian, the company shall do everything necessary to delete all provided personal data.
If the parents or guardian of the person under the age of 18 or a person with limited or deprived legal capacity find out that their child or the person in their care has used the online store of our website or has voluntarily provided his personal data to the company, they can inform the company about this and request the deletion of the relevant personal data at firstname.lastname@example.org.
