What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Contact forms are sent to Elisa Valía, Project Manager of the NOPUNISH project: elisa.valia@uv.es. Your messages and data provided will used for contact you and these data will be secured. Third-parties will not have access to your data and it is not scoped in the project. Just in case your message is about a cooperation action between our project and the yours one, and obtaining your permission before, we could provide your email and name to a partner of the NOPUNISH consortium.

Data will not be used for sending emails, newsletters or any other dissemination material without consent: as regards newsletters, people interested can subscribe at http://nopunish.eu/resources/training/. Your name and email will not be stored, and your sociodemographic data will be anonymised. You can also choose a pseudonym instead of your name. For revoking or modifying the access right to your data, please, send an email to info@nopunish.eu

Analysis and evaluation

Registration form facilitates our team to collect data related to age, sex, country and profile (e.g., education, families, etc.) for evaluating the project performance before its ends and assuring the long-term sustainability.

In addition, you must complete the registration form for participating in our forums. However, is not mandatory to sing up with a real name or surname: in this case, your email must be the real one; otherwise, you will not receive the confirmation email with all information for working with our platform.

We also store anonymised feedback from madurity tests included in each best practice: see an example at http://bestpractices.nopunish.eu/opvoeden-zo/. These tests could be filled before registration, and there is not any mean for identifying users who completed the maturity assessments.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. Please, remember that you can use a pseudonym or false email either, except you are asking for feedback, support or collaboration.

These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, in this case from Youtube, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

Your data, anonymised, will be shared internally between parties involved in the consortium for research purposes.

NOPUNISH subcontracted the websites development to a third party including a confidentiality agreement and a general prohibition to access, modify, exploit and distribute personal data.

Tasks regarding data analysis are centralised in the University of Valencia, the project coordinator, and these are not derived or subcontracted to other parties.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Your contact information

We do not store contact information, except those emails voluntarily provided by our users for participating and subscribing to the newsletter and forums. Your contact information will not be used for research purposes except this data: Country.

It is expressly forbidden to share or claim for contact information to another user. If your share contact information publicly in our websites, we will proceed to delete it.
