Dignity for migrants pausing in Slovenia

By John Engedal Nissen, IFRC

It is just a few hours since a group of vulnerable migrants arrived at Gornja Radgona - one of two accommodation centres near the Austrian border. It is their last stop in Slovenia.

The group of about 300 migrants sits in the dining area of the centre. They have just received a hot meal - a filling soup of chicken, potatoes and carrots as well as some bread - distributed by Red Cross volunteers. Now they wait to cross the border to Austria. Meanwhile, the Red Cross volunteers continue to assist the people on the move with their different needs.

A small and simple clinic has been set up in one corner where volunteer Nina Mavrin, 32, and others provide first aid.

"Most come with minor issues, but they are worried. If they are very sick we take them to the hospital. We also distribute diapers for their babies," says Mavrin, who uses her vacation time to help the many migrants.

One of them is Nisar Ahmed from Afghanistan, who waits outside the clinic with his two-year-old daughter and wife. He has a headache, a sore throat and a cough he explains with gestures and a few English words.

"Someone must do something"

In another corner of the centre, Anja Petersen, 52, and other volunteers are also busy. They move back and forth between the space where the donated clothing and shoes are stored and a group of migrants who are pushing up against a metal barrier explaining their needs.

"Jacket?" Petersen asks one of the migrants, miming putting on a jacket. Few speak English, she explains.

When asked why she has stepped up to help the people on the move, Petersen answers, "Someone must do something. I felt so sorry for them and how they have had to flee their country. They must be very afraid. When I saw images of the situation in the news, I thought ‘what can I do?’"

So she came from Switzerland to help for the weekend.

"Shoes. 42," another migrant asks in English. Right then, a translator calls for everyone to come outside using a megaphone.

Happy for the attention

Within a few minutes the group stands in a long queue. One of them is Aisha, a Syrian girl travelling with her family. Her mother hurries to comb her hair when she notices that she is being photographed. The family is clearly happy for the attention. Aisha smiles shyly, but her brother quickly asks the few sentences he’s learned in English: "How are you? … I am fine, thank you."

"Goodbye friend, goodbye brother," some of the migrants say as they pass a Red Cross worker. Led by three policemen, the group walks by a football field where a match is currently being played and then through a small park. A family on the playground stop and watch as the group walks on towards the Austrian border some hundred metres further.

Uporaba piškotkov na naši spletni strani

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.
