The protection of your privacy and your personal data is of the utmost importance for us at Turistična agencija Sonček. We devote a lot of attention to this aspect in our online activities. Our Data Protection Policy therefore complies with the applicable provisions governing the area of personal data protection and other legal provisions applying in the Republic of Slovenia as well as Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council (hereinafter: GDPR).
In order to protect your data as effectively as possible against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or to prevent access to your data by unauthorised third parties, we employ technical and organisational protection measures which we upgrade subject to technical development and legislative amendments.
We will explain at this point which of your personal data we collect and what we use them for. Below, we explain where we obtain personal data, how we protect them, to whom we transmit them and how we ensure the exercise of your rights relating to personal data protection.
Personal data means information that can be used to ascertain your identity. Such information includes for example your name, address, post code, date of birth and gender, IP address, telephone number or your e-mail, payment information, etc.
Information that is not directly related to your actual identity (such as favourite websites or the number of website users) does not fall into this category.
We collect personal data upon the booking of tourism services, i.e. either in person at a branch office, via the call centre, on the website or in the application, or when you pay for services and when you participate in prize competitions or register for the newsletter. We also collect personal data when you visit our website.
We specifically collect the following categories of personal data:
Your data may be used for the following purposes:
Your personal data are processed exclusively based on the legal basis for the processing. The legal basis depends on the purpose, for which we obtained the data.
In the majority of cases, your personal data are processed for the purpose of fulfilling your travel contract.
Personal data may also be processed for the following purposes:
We shall not store your data longer than required for the fulfilment of the purpose, for which they are processed. In order to determine a suitable retention period, we consider the scope, nature and sensitivity of personal data, the purposes, for which they are processed, and whether we can achieve these purposes by other means.
When determining a suitable retention period, we must consider the legal periods such as those laid down in the Value Added Tax Act, the statute of limitations or the period for the consideration of complaints.
When we no longer require your personal data, we will securely erase or destroy them.
We may transmit your personal data for the purposes outlined in these Rules to the following third parties:
The agency offers tourism services practically everywhere in the world meaning that it is sometimes necessary to send personal data to third parties, which are listed in the first indent, outside the European Economic Area (EEA) for the purpose of fulfilling the travel contract. Because personal data protection in other countries is not as high as it is in the EEA, we request all service providers to process data securely and in accordance with the legislation on data protection applying in the Republic of Slovenia and in the EU.
In order to ensure the legality of data transmission outside the EEA, we use standard means for the protection of data outside the EEA.
We hereby explicitly declare that we do not sell personal data to third parties, which especially applies to addresses.
When storing and disclosing your personal data, we adhere to strict security procedures and protect data from accidental loss, destruction or damage. The data you send us are protected with the SSL technology (Secure Socket Layer). SSL is a standard industry method for encoding personal data and credit card data so that they can be safely transmitted over the Internet.
All payment data are transmitted via the SSL through the dedicated network infrastructure (MPLS) and stored in accordance with the payment card industry's data security standards (PCI DSS).
In regards to the protection of data relating to your credit card, we would like to explicitly warn you that – when effecting payments online – these data must be entered exclusively in the reservation form fields which are dedicated for this purpose. We can only ensure secure handling of your data if you yourself observe the correct method of data entry.
We may disclose your personal data to third parties exclusively for the purposes outlined in these Rules. We request all third parties to have suitable technical and operational safeguards in place for the protection of your personal data in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Act and the GDPR.
Under certain circumstances, you shall have the following rights under the law, i.e. the right to:
If you wish to exercise any of the abovementioned rights, send your request via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or via regular mail to the address Turistična agencija Sonček, d. o. o., Glavni trg 17, 2000 Maribor.
You do not need to pay a fee for limiting access to personal data or to exercise of any other right. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is manifestly unjustified or excessive. Another option that we have is to refuse the request under such circumstances.
In case of the exercise of rights for such reasons, we may have to request certain information from you that will help us confirm your identity, which is only a security measure that ensures that personal data are not disclosed to unauthorised persons.

General information is stored (e.g. number of visitors and duration of the visit to individual pages, etc.) upon each access to the content of our online offer.

Our website uses the anonymisation function that is provided by the Google Analytics service. Because of this, IP addresses are therefore stored and processed only in abbreviated form so that they cannot be linked to the identity of a particular person.

Through the integration of the Plug-ins, Facebook receives information that you visited a certain page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can link your visit to your Facebook account.
