An individual is identifiable when we can identify either directly or indirectly, in particular by specifying an identifier such as name, identification number, location information, web identifier, or by specifying one or more factors specific to the individual's physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

Provider collects the following personal data in accordance with the purposes set out below in this privacy policy:

  • basic information about the client (name and surname, address, date of birth, location);
  • contact details and information about your communication with the provider (e-mail address, telephone number, date, time and contents of postal or e-mail communication, date, time and duration of phone calls, recordings of phone calls);

  • other information which the user voluntarily makes available to the provider upon request of certain services requiring such information.

The provider does not collect or process your personal data, except when you allow it or consent to this, ie. when ordering products or services, when participating in a sweepstake, etc., or when there is a legal basis for collecting personal data or the processing provider has a legitimate interest.

The time period during which the provider retains the collected information is further specified in the section Retention of Personal Data of this Policy.

The purposes and grounds for the data processing

  • law and contractual relations,
  • consent of the individual and
  • legitimate interest.

Processing based on law and contractual relationships

When the provision of personal data is a contractual obligation (an obligation required to conclude and perform a contract with the provider) or a legal obligation, you must provide personal data; If you do not provide personal data, you cannot conclude a contract with the provider, nor can the provider perform services or supply products under the contract, since he does not have the necessary information to perform the contract.

Processing based on legitimate interest

The provider may also process the data on the basis of a legitimate interest pursued by the provider, except where such interests outweigh the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of an individual to whom the personal data pertain (requiring the protection of personal data). Where a legitimate interest is exercised, the provider shall always carry out an assessment in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, which shall in particular be relevant to:

  • protecting you, us and others from threats (such as security threats or fraud),
  • compliance with laws in force around the world,
  • improving our products, services and digital content,
  • performing profiling to provide targeted content and interest-based advertising,
  • understanding and improving our online activities, our business, our customer base and relationships in general,
  • enabling or running our business, such as quality control and consolidated reporting,
  • managing business transactions, such as mergers or acquisitions,
  • accessing your past orders and other information.

Processing based on your consent

  2. Collecting personal data for specified and legitimate purposes without further processing in ways incompatible with those purposes.
  3. Collecting personal data that is relevant to the purposes for which the data is collected and used and is not disproportionate to those purposes. We may turn the data into anonymous where feasible and appropriate given the nature of the data and the risks associated with the intended use.
  4. Maintaining accurate personal data and updating it when necessary. We will take reasonable steps to supplement or delete inaccurate or incomplete information.

Retention of personal data

The provider will retain your personal data only for as long as it is necessary to accomplish the purpose for which the personal data were collected and further processed.

The personal data processed by the provider due to legal reasons are retained by the provider for the period prescribed by law.

The provider shall retain the personal data processed for the purpose of performing the contractual relationship with the individual for the period necessary to execute the contract and for another 5 years after its termination, except in cases of contract-related disputes between the individual and the provider; in such case, the provider shall keep the data for 5 years after the court or arbitration award or settlement has become final or, in case of out-of-court dispute, for 5 years from the date of peaceful settlement of the dispute.

Any personal data that the provider processes based on the personal consent of an individual or a legitimate interest shall be permanently stored by the provider until the withdrawal of this consent by the individual or a request to interrupt the processing. The provider shall delete such information before cancellation only when the purpose of the processing of personal data has already been achieved (for example, if the provider stops with the operation of its benefit club, all personal data collected for this purpose would be deleted even though the individual who consented to the processing of personal data for the purpose of the membership in a benefit club has not given such cancellation), or if required by law.

After the data retention period has elapsed, the provider effectively and permanently deletes or anonymises personal data so that it can no longer be linked to a specific individual.

Contractual processing of personal data

As an individual, you are aware and agree that the provider may entrust certain tasks relating to your data to other persons (contractors). Contractors may process confidential information solely on behalf of the provider, within the limits of the provider's authorization (in a written contract or other legal act) and for the purposes set out in this privacy policy.

Mines Team Ltd Quality Policy

The beginning of the company’s operation dates back to 1992 when Mines Team Ltd entered the market as a metal working company in the first place. Later, the company focused and specialized into the development of plumbing fittings and other sanitary products. In 2012, we additionally expanded our operation and focused on the production of luminaires for public lighting. For this purpose, we created a new brand, named MT-light.

Today, our production under this brand includes street lights, classic lightning, LED lighting, decorative lamps, solar lamps and industrial lamps.

In MINES TEAM d.o.o., we presently focus on two production programs; namely sanitary equipment and lighting solutions. In 2015, we created the brand Salix to cover the department of sanitary equipment production. With the introduction of an innovative and quality line of plumbing fixtures, we are strengthening and expanding our presence and recognition in domestic market as well as in foreign markets. The marketing path we choose for our company is supported not only with high-end products but also with high-end graphic design. We strive for efficiency, quality and safety of our products. By sticking to these values, SALIX would like to satisfy the demand and gain trust of all our loyal and future customers or product users.

With our lighting solutions program, we are trying to be present everywhere inside Slovenia as well as on the foreign markets. The Decree on the Limit Values of Light Pollution allows for better illumination of public spaces in Slovenia and abroad, and at the same provides a great opportunity to prove the market that Mt-light can offer high-quality, efficient and elegant Slovenian products to compete with established European brands in terms of quality.
