The Slovenian Forestry Institute

The Slovenian Forestry Institute is a public research institute of national importance, which conducts basic and applied research on forests and forest landscapes, forest ecosystems, wildlife ecology, hunting, forest management, and other uses of the resources and services forests provide. The scientific knowledge from these fields helps further the research on forest biodiversity and its management in relation to climate change.

As part of its research programme and related studies, the Institute also provides forestry and environmental services in the public interest.

Another of the Institute’s functions is to provide scientific knowledge on all aspects of sustainable development, with the purpose of increasing knowledge and awareness of the importance of forests within the environment and the importance of forest management. In short, the Institute is a scientific, professional, and cultural storehouse for Slovenia’s relationship with its forests and the resources and services they provide.

Research Program

The Institute’s research programme is organized into six departments, all of which study forests from the standpoint of the sustainable development of society, in balance with the environment:

Public Forestry Service

The Slovenian Forestry Institute intensively monitors forests as part of the public forestry service. This includes surveying and recording forest degradation and damage, providing a diagnostic reporting service, developing an information system for research purposes, and monitoring forestry seeding and nursery activities.

The Institute is also committed to sustainable forest management and the conservation of its biological diversity, as well as to the further development and organization of the Slovenian forestry system and forestry policy.

Public Environmental Service

The Slovenian Forestry Institute’s public environmental service monitors emissions and sinks of greenhouse gases resulting from land use, land use change, and forestry. As a signatory of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Slovenia is required to submit an annual report on greenhouse gas emissions and sinks. Slovenia is also a signatory of the Kyoto Protocol, which requires countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels (for Slovenia to 1986 levels). The Kyoto Protocol allows for flexibility in the manner of cutting emissions. Countries may, for example, partially offset their greenhouse gas emissions with their forests, which remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Publishing

The Slovenian Forestry Institute publishes literature through the Silva Slovenica publishing house. In partnership with the Biotechnical Faculty’s Department of Forestry and Department of Wood Science and Technology, SFI publishes the collection Studia Forestalia Slovenica and the Zbornik gozdarstva in lesarstva (Journal of Forestry and Wood Science).

The Slovenian Forestry Institute successfully collaborates with Slovenian forestry, timber, and nature conservation organizations, as well as with other educational and research organizations both in Slovenia and abroad.

Pravna podlaga

Podlaga za obvestilo je spremenjeni Zakon o elektronskih komunikacijah (Uradni list št. 109/2012; v nadaljevanju ZEKom-1), ki je začel veljati v začetku leta 2013. Prinesel je nova pravila glede uporabe piškotkov in podobnih tehnologij za shranjevanje informacij ali dostop do informacij, shranjenih na računalniku ali mobilni napravi uporabnika.

Kaj so piškotki?

Piškotki so majhne datoteke, pomembne za delovanje spletnih strani, največkrat z namenom, da je uporabnikova izkušnja boljša.

Piškotek običajno vsebuje zaporedje črk in številk, ki se naloži na uporabnikov računalnik, ko ta obišče določeno spletno stran. Ob vsakem ponovnem obisku bo spletna stran pridobila podatek o naloženem piškotku in uporabnika prepoznala.

Poleg funkcije izboljšanja uporabniške izkušnje je njihov namen različen. Piškotki se lahko uporabljajo tudi za analizo vedenja ali prepoznavanje uporabnikov. Zato ločimo različne vrste piškotkov.

Vrste piškotkov, ki jih uporabljamo na tej spletni strani

Piškotki, ki jih uporabljamo na tej strani sledijo smernicam:

1. Nujno potrebni piškotki

Tovrstni piškotki omogočajo uporabo nujno potrebnih komponent za pravilno delovanje spletne strani. Brez teh piškotov servisi, ki jih želite uporabljati na tej spletni strani, ne bi delovali pravilno (npr. prijava, nakupni proces, ...).

2. Izkustveni piškotki

Tovrstni piškotki zbirajo podatke, kako se uporabniki vedejo na spletni strani z namenom izboljšanja izkustvene komponente spletne strani (npr. katere dele spletne strani obiskujejo najpogosteje). Ti piškotki ne zbirajo informacij, preko katerih bi lahko identificirali uporabnika.

3. Funkcionalni piškotki

Tovrstni piškotki omogočajo spletni strani, da si zapomni nekatere vaše nastavitve in izbire (npr. uporabniško ime, jezik, regijo) in zagotavlja napredne, personalizirane funkcije. Tovrstni piškotki lahko omogočajo sledenje vašim akcijam na spletni strani.

4. Oglasni ali ciljani piškotki

Tovrstne piškotke najpogosteje uporabljajo oglaševalska in družabna omrežja (tretje strani) z namenom, da vam prikažejo bolj ciljane oglase, omejujejo ponavljanje oglasov ali merijo učinkovitost oglaševalskih akcij. Tovrstni piškotki lahko omogočajo sledenje vašim akcijam na spletu.

Nadzor piškotkov

Za uporabo piškotkov se odločate sami. Piškotke lahko vedno odstranite in s tem odstranite vašo prepoznavnost na spletu. Prav tako večino brskalnikov lahko nastavite tako, da piškotkov ne shranjujejo.

Za informacije o možnostih posameznih brskalnikov predlagamo, da si ogledate nastavitve.
