PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION POLICY AND COOKIE POLICY

Right to privacy is one of the most important human rights. In Mison d.o.o. (hereinafter referred to as Cook Eat Slovenia), we are very well aware of this and we therefore respect the privacy of our customers* and treat their personal data responsibly, carefully and according to the applicable legislation. The access to personal data is permitted only to authorised Cook Eat Slovenia personnel and contracted processors, to the extent and with the purpose strictly necessary for the smooth implementation, assurance and fulfilment of rights and obligations arising from concluded contractual relations.

By taking proper measures, we ensure that unauthorised persons do not access personal data, protect its confidentiality and integrity, and prevent its loss or unintentional destruction throughout the entire time of being processed. We will not be held responsible for any "hacking" into a computer system!

Cook Eat Slovenia and its processors fully respect the general principles regarding the processing of personal data, which are:

  1. We process user personal data legally, fairly and transparently.
  2. We collect personal data for purposes that are pre-determined, explicit and legal; we do not process personal data for any other purpose, except in the case of processing for scientific or historical research purposes and for statistical purposes, under certain conditions.
  3. Personal data is processed to the minimum extent for the purposes for which it is processed.
  4. We ensure that the personal data we process is accurate and regularly updated; incorrect data is corrected or deleted.
  5. We store personal data only as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which they are processed.
  6. We ensure appropriate security of personal data, which includes prevention of unauthorised or unlawful processing and accidental loss, destruction or damage by appropriate technical and organisational measures.

For questions related to the processing and use of personal data, information, corrections, blocking, deletion of personal data or cancellation of notification consent, cancellation of consent, please contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

2. Which personal data are collected?

  • Basic personal data (name and surname);
  • communication data (e.g. address, mail, telephone);
  • information on communication between Cook Eat Slovenia and you;
  • payments data;
  • any other data obtained based on the consent.

3. What are the legal bases for processing your personal data

According to the applicable legislation in the field of personal data protection, personal data can be processed:

  • if this is necessary for the conclusion and/or fulfilment of a contract (application for a tour or workshop);
  • if required by law;
  • if consent is given (which can be cancelled at any time);
  • if the processing is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by Cook Eat Slovenia or a third party.

3.1. Processing based on a concluded contract

Cook Eat Slovenia processes personal data of individuals to fulfil its obligations under a contractual relationship for the organisation of tours, workshops or other services agreed between the contractual parties. In the context of the exercise of rights and the fulfilment of contractual obligations, Cook Eat Slovenia processes personal data of individuals for the following purposes:

  • identification of an individual;
  • preparation of the offer and conclusion of the contract;
  • providing services, whereby Cook Eat Slovenia can give the data to contract partners that will implement an individual service (e.g. a provider of overnight stays, etc.)
  • sending notifications to individuals regarding the implementation of the contractual relationship;
  • informing about changes in legislation in a particular field or changes in terms of sale;
  • invoicing services;
  • resolving objections or complaints;
  • implementation of any recovery procedures, sale of receivables;
  • for other purposes, necessary for the conclusion or implementation of a contractual relationship.

To the extent strictly necessary for authentication and identification of transactions, Cook Eat Slovenia processes data for the purpose of preparing reports and planning further activities.

For the purposes of organising tour services and related services or other services ordered by an individual, Cook Eat Slovenia processes all information needed. This includes in particular, but not exclusively: name, first name, surname, birth date, address, place, country, telephone number, fax, e-mail, etc.

We do not need explicit consent for contractual processing of personal data.

If the individual does not provide all personal data that Cook Eat Slovenia needs to fulfil the contractual relationship, Cook Eat Slovenia cannot execute the individual's order. Hereby, Cook Eat Slovenia always acquires and further processes only the personal data that is needed to fulfil the contractual relationship.

3.2. Processing based on the law

The legal basis means that Cook Eat Slovenia processes personal data of an individual to fulfil the applicable legal obligations imposed by the legislation.
In the Republic of Slovenia, legal obligations to process certain personal data are determined in particular by:
Value Added Tax Act ZDDV-1;

Tax Procedure Act;

Companies Act;

Accounting Act;

Rules on the implementation of the Value Added Tax Act;

Slovenian Accounting Standards.

If Cook Eat Slovenia processes personal data of an individual who has made an online purchase or service order, it keeps the invoice for 10 years (as well as individual's/buyer's data on the account).

3.3. Processing based on legitimate interest

Cook Eat Slovenia may process data on the basis of a legitimate interest which Cook Eat Slovenia or a third party pursues, except when such interests are prevailed by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of an individual, to whom the data that requires the protection of personal data is related, in particular when the data relates to a child. In the case of further use of collected data on an individual, Cook Eat Slovenia implements the assessment according to the General Data Protection Regulation. Such further use of data in a pseudonymised or aggregated form, for example, represents the lawful use of data for marketing and other business or technical analyses of Cook Eat Slovenia.

According to the General Data Protection Regulation, direct marketing also belongs to legitimate interests. For the purposes of direct marketing, Cook Eat Slovenia may create individual profiles without any consent on the basis of basic information on selected services, such as e.g. the type or specific characteristics of the selected service, time of selection or past marketing contacts with the individual, in particular with respect to the expressed interest or lack of interest in certain services. Such basic profiling shall never include sensitive data. An individual may object to the processing according to the right to the restriction (item 7.4).

Based on legitimate interest, Cook Eat Slovenia may contact the individual to improve the service or determine his satisfaction with the services, even when this is not strictly necessary for the implementation of the contract. Due to the individuals' interest, Cook Eat Slovenia does not contact those individuals who have objected to this.

Cook Eat Slovenia has a legitimate interest to keep and further use data for analyses and research for marketing, business planning and similar until the expiration of the legally prescribed retention period.


3.4. Processing based on the consent to process personal data

Explicit consent is the basis for personal data processing for which Cook Eat Slovenia does not have a legal or contractual legal basis. For example, consent may relate to:

  • informing about other Cook Eat Slovenia offers and services, which is implemented exclusively through the communication channel selected by the individual;
  • photographing and recording a tour or workshop for the purpose of presenting Cook Eat Slovenia activities and publishing photos, videos and sound recordings on the Cook Eat Slovenia website and on Facebook, Twiter, YouTube and Instagram profiles.

The consent is given by the individual for himself, and in the case of a child, this consent is given by one of the parents or a legal representative.

In these cases, the processing of personal data is implemented to the extend and for purposes allowed by the individual's statement and through agreed communication channels, until cancellation.

If the individual does not consent to the personal data collection and processing for one or more purposes specified in an individual consent, this does not have any consequences for the data the processing of which is implemented based on other legal basis.

Personal data collected on the basis of a consent will be processed only within the framework and for the purpose of the given consent and will not be transmitted to third parties, unless this is explicitly stated in the consent and the individual agrees that personal data may be transmitted to the processor specified in the consent.

The consent to process personal data can be cancelled by the individual at any time by contacting our data protection point (item 8). The consent can be cancelled by an e-mail sent to the e-mail address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


4. How long is personal data kept

Personal data shall be stored in accordance with the applicable regulations governing the protection of personal data. It shall be stored only as long as necessary for the purposes for which it is processed or according to the law. We store personal data, that we process on the basis of personal consent of the individual, permanently, until cancellation. Personal data, which we process on the basis of the law or contractual relationship, is kept for as long as the law determines.

If the data is processed on the basis of an individual's consent due to the marketing of Cook Eat Slovenia, the data may be processed to the necessary extent for as long as necessary for such marketing or services.

After the expiry of the retention period, the personal data is effectively and permanently deleted or anonymised so that it can no longer be linked to an individual.

5. How do we protect personal data

We use technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data against unlawful or unauthorised access or use and also against unintentional loss or impairment of their integrity. We have designed these measures with regard to our IT infrastructure, possible impact on individual's privacy and costs and according to current industry standards and practices. Our contractual processors shall process your personal data only if they comply with these technical and organisational security measures.

Maintaining data security means protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of personal data:

  • confidentiality and integrity: individuals' personal data shall be protected against unauthorised or illegal processing and against unintentional loss, destruction or injury;
  • availability: we shall ensure that authorised processors can access personal data only when necessary.



Our security procedures include: access security, backup copies, monitoring, revision and maintenance, security incident management, etc.
