Compliance with the Copyrights


PIRS is a protected trade mark in all data, program, design and other elements (not specially mentioned, but not excluded), which can be legally protected by the Slovenian and international legislation. All actions, interfering with such rights without the trade mark owner (Slovenska knjiga, Ljubljana) are therefore strictly forbidden. The trademark owner (Slovenska knjiga, d.o.o., Ljubljana, Stegne 3, hereinafter mentioned as SK) will persecute any such infringement to a large extent.

General terms of publishing

The data in Pirs are gained from public data collections or by personal verification performed by the agents of Slovenska knjiga. When an agent visits a company the responsible person confirms with his/her signature the correctness of data stated in the document. With this signature the publisher is entitled to publish the data - statistical and other publicly available data, including personal data - in directories, to send notifications and, according to provisions of the Personal Data Protection Act, to keep these verified personal data in certain data collections, which are necessary for publishing directories (the subscribers catalogue, the buyers catalogue). The display of basic data from the document is free. The subscriber is obliged to inform the publisher in written form about all possible data changes as soon as possible and the publisher is obliged to take these changes into consideration in the shortest time possible. On the other hand, the publisher reserves the right to correct spelling, grammatical and other editorial mistakes and to adjust the data with technical elements of the directory. Obligations, deriving from material copyrights, which are connected to artistic, graphic and other materials, are the responsibility of the subscriber, who is obliged to send to the publisher also the data on authors of individual copyright works. The subscriber also bears the responsibility to protect personal data on the basis of provisions of the 2nd and the 3th paragraphs of Article 10 in Personal Data Protection Act – 1.

The above-mentioned provisions are logically used also for sending company data through Internet, by using the functions Add new company and Modify company information. Only registered Pirs users who ask for an activation code to acquire the right of authorized editing of ads and data of their companies, can send data changes through Internet.


Business directories (PIRS) and unwanted electronic mail

In the field of business directories Slovenska knjiga appears exclusively as the advertisement service provider, where the advertisers freely present chosen and formed information. This holds true especially for the electronic mail addresses: we want to stress that we publish only those electronic addresses, the publishing of which is allowed by the authenticated written authorization of the owner of electronic mail box.
 

Slovenska knjiga, d.o.o. upgraded the written consent for publishing gained for the majority of electronic addresses, into “prior consent for sending an electronic message”. With the signature of an authorized person in the company, Slovenska knjiga gains the exclusive permission for the Pirs users to use the company’s electronic mail address for their commercial message intended for direct marketing, which the signatory of the permission agrees to, saying that such message does not represent unsolicited communication proceeding from Article 158 of the Electronic Communications Act (ECA), (ECA - officially consolidated text, Official Gazette RS, No. 109/2012). This permission acts in place of prior recipient’s consent according to the 1st paragraph of Article 158 of the above-cited Act. Addresses which comply with this condition are distinguished from others on the list by being coloured in blue. 

To avoid any misunderstanding arising from the use of this prior consent, please read the instructions carefully before use.


The key provision for the judgment of allowed and not allowed on part of the sender is contained in Article 158 (Unsolicited communication) of the Electronic Communication Act, (ECA - officially consolidated text, Official Gazette RS, No. 109/2012) and article 6 (special obligation for providing the data for commercial messages) of the Electronic Commerce Marketing Act (ECMA, Official Gazette RS, No. 61/2006, 45/2008 and 79/2009). 
 

 

Article 158 of ECA states the following:
 

(1) The use of automated calling and communication systems without human intervention (e.g. automatic calling machines, SMS, MMS), facsimile machines (fax) or electronic mail for the purpose of direct marketing may be allowed only in respect of subscribers or users who have given their prior consent.

 

(2) Notwithstanding the provisions of the previous paragraph, a natural or legal person who, in the context of the sale of a product or a service, obtains from its customers their electronic contact details for electronic mail, may use these electronic contact details for direct marketing of its own similar products or services provided that customers clearly and distinctly are given the opportunity to object, free of charge and in a simple manner, to such use of electronic contact details at the time of their collection an on the occasion of each message in case the customer has not initially refused such use.

 

(3) The use of other communications for the purpose of direct marketing (e.g. voice telephone calls) than those referred to in the previous paragraphs, is not allowed without the consent of the subscribers or users concerned. The refusal of the consent must be free of charge for the subscriber or user.

 

(4) Paragraphs 1 and 3 shall apply to subscribers who are natural persons.

 

(5) The practice of sending electronic mail for the purpose of direct marketing which contradicts the Act governing electronic commerce in the market, by disguising or concealing the identity of the sender in whose behalf the communication is made, without a valid address to which the recipient may send a request that such communications cease is prohibited. It is also prohibited to send electronic mail for the purposes of direct marketing which encourages recipients to visit websites that contravene the above mentioned Act.

 

(6) When commercial communications sent by electronic mail contradict the provisions of this Article and are considered spams according to the Consumer Protection Act, the provisions of that Act shall apply. The provisions of that Act shall also apply when commercial communications sent by electronic mail contradict the provisions of this Article and are considered spams according to the Act governing electronic commerce in the market.

 

(7) Without prejudice to any surveillance procedure introduced due to the infringement of provisions of this Article, any natural or legal person adversely affected by such infringement, as well as any service provider protecting his business interests or interests of its clients, has a legitimate interest to initiate civil action or request an interim decision against the infringer.
 

Article 6 of ECMA states the following:

 

(1) The bidder of services can send commercial messages, which are part of information company, if:

  • a receiver of the service gives a prior consent for it,

  • a commercial message is clearly recognizable,

  • a natural person or legal entity on whose behalf the commercial message is sent, is clearly stated,

  • the conditions for the use of special offers, connected with the discount, bonuses and gifts are clearly and undoubtedly stated and must be clearly marked

  • the conditions for participating in prize competitions or lotteries are clearly and undoubtedly stated and must be clearly recognizable.

2) Apart from the conditions from the previous paragraph, when sending commercial messages as a part of his service performed the bidder of the service with a regulated profession has to consider the possible special rules of regulated profession regarding the independence, dignity and honor of the profession, professional confidence and honesty to clients and co-workers.

 

(3) When the commercial messages are sent in the contradiction with the first and second paragraphs of this article and if this is at the same time an unsolicited electronic mail according to the law on consumer protection, the provisions of this law are used.

 

Since it is indisputable that “having an e-mail address” is not only a status symbol, but they are published by the subscribers in the business directories for the purpose of making addresses more accessible to the potential senders (i.e. to enable natural persons and legal entities to obtain them), Slovenska knjiga has gained the permissions for many electronic addresses with the signature of the responsible person in the company. Such permission acts in place of prior subscriber’s consent from paragraph 1 of Article 158 of the Electronic Communication Act.

 

For electronic addresses with no permission obtained, i.e. prior consent according to Article 158 of the Electronic Communication Act (you will recognize it as being marked in blue on the list) the Pirs users are obliged to respect the legal provisions of the relevant Act when using the published addresses. According to the Slovene legislation they should gain special consent of the message receiver according to Article 158 of the Electronic Communication Act. Therefore Slovenska knjiga from its side calls upon all business subjects registered in Pirs, that they should – respecting the legislation and good business practise – enforce appropriate ways of communication in the field of direct marketing.             

 

According to the provision of paragraph 2, Article 158 of the Electronic Communication Act, natural persons or legal entities obtaining the electronic mail addresses from the customers of their products or services may use such addresses for direct marketing of their similar products or services, but they shall be obliged to give their customers the possibility of preventing such use of their electronic address at any time, free of charge and in a simple way.     

 

Slovenska knjiga, d.o.o. is not responsible for any infringement of the Electronic Communication Act (ECA - officially consolidated text, Official Gazette RS, No. 109/2012) and of the Electronic Commerce Marketing Act (ECMA, Official Gazette RS, No. 61/2006, 45/2008 and 79/2009) by the Pirs users or by any third persons, which can be caused by the use of the electronic addresses data published in Pirs, and can be in conflict with the legal provisions.

 

Violation of the stated Acts is considered as offences and are sanctioned with high penalties for legal entities, responsible persons of legal entities, responsible persons of independent entrepreneur, as well for physical persons (Criminal provisions of ECA and ECMA).

 

We call upon the Pirs users to consistently respect the provisions of the stated acts.

 

Pirs Editor

Publication of the email address

With the signature of an authorized person or through the electronic mail (or through the template forms on the Internet) the subscriber gives the exclusive permission to the Pirs users to use the published e-mail address of a subscriber (the company’s electronic mail address) for their commercial message intended for direct marketing, and at the same time he agrees that such message does not represent an unsolicited communication proceeding from Article 158 of the Electronic Communication Act (ECA, officially consolidated text, Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No. 109/2012). This permission acts in place of prior recipient’s consent according to the 1st paragraph of Article 158 of the above-cited Act.

The subscriber can withdraw this consent at any time by sending an e-mail or post message to Slovenska knjiga, and Slovenska knjiga is obliged to take this into the consideration in the next issue of the program on CD-Rom or in three days after the receipt of this message in Pirs on Internet.

 Slovenska knjiga, d.o.o. is not responsible for any possible infringement of the Electronic Communication Act (ECA, officially consolidated text, Official Gazette RS, No. 109/2012) and the Electronic Commerce Market Act (ECMA, Official Gazette of  the Republic of Slovenia, No. 61/2006, 45/2008, 79/2009) by the Pirs users or by any third persons, which can be caused by the use of information on electronic addresses, published in Pirs, and can be in conflict with the legal provisions. Slovenska knjiga calls upon all Pirs users to respect the provisions of the cited Acts, particularly Article 158 of ECA and Article 6 of ECMA.  
 


Explanation of possible problems of massive e-mail sending through Pirs

All users of program Pirs or Internet are requested to be careful and moderate when using Pirs tools for creating electronic messages. According to the Internet Code of Ethics and current Message Sending Regulations, we send messages only to the customers who gave their prior consent, and we also carefully select them depending on the contents. A modern - general and advanced - browser in Pirs enables us to select a properly narrow »target« with sufficiently detailed criteria; meaning a precisely determined target group of companies whom we then send the messages to.

 

Many public suppliers of electronic mail services have recently limited the number of messages that can be sent over a certain time period through our “outgoing” mail server or to a particular “incoming” mail server with a huge number of recipients. Some of them are quite rigorous and allow the sending or receiving of not more than 200 messages daily, others allow 500 or even 2000 messages daily.  

 

Example 1

Ivan Novak sends through the mail server of his supplier (e.g. mail.prvi.si) from his mailbox ivan.novak@prvi.si 500 electronic messages to different e-mail addresses at the same time. Mail server mail.prvi.si has strict limitations, so Ivan Novak is not allowed to send more than 200 e-mail messages daily; the server postpones the sending of other 300 messages, for a day or similar.  

 

Example 2

Janez Novak has a more tolerable e-mail server supplier (mail.drugi.si), so he can easily send out 700 e-mail messages from his mailbox (janez.novak@drugi.si) to different e-mail addresses, which are all opened at the same service supplier (mail.prejemniki.si). According to its internal rule the server mail.prejemniki.si accepts and delivers e-messages to not more than 400 addresses daily; the delivery of all other messages is refused and the messages do not reach the recipients (usually with the following explanation: “Too many messages from the same mailbox!”).  

 

Before using the Pirs tools we recommend you to make enquiries at your e-mail service supplier about possible quantity and time limitations of sending e-mail messages. It is sometimes wise to check if intended recipients have actually received your messages.
 


Legal provisions on the discount coupons

Discount coupon is an advertising message of a certain company, published in a Consumer guide or on the Internet address www.pirs.si. With a discount coupon you can apply for a discount or some other benefits, defined by the provider of products or services within the frame of this coupon.

The coupon can be capitalized in the print form, so it must be printed and brought to the certain company according to the rules, stated on this coupon. Show the coupon at the time of purchase before the invoice is issued.

Only one discount coupon can be applied in one purchase. Only original prints are valid. Copying or any other means of reproduction are not allowed.

Slovenska knjiga d.o.o. acts solely as an advertisement provider and therefore cannot assume any legal responsibilities, arising from the relation between the advertiser and its customers, including holders of discount coupons.
