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 anonymised 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: 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.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise 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.

How we protect your data

Data provided by users is encrypted and anonymised, only used for researching and for evaluating the project performance

Backups are automatically updated overnight, seven days per week. All PCs acceding this site are properly updated and secured. Our sites are hosted in a Linux-based served owned by Grupo Loading Systems S.L. (CIF: B53927950), in Spain

What third parties we receive data from

Third parties do not receive your data. Your data is accessible to consortium partners and your data is protected by both, European and National regulations, as well as by the consortium agreement and the internal confidentiality agreement.

What automated decision making and profiling we do with user data

We need to collect these data for accomplishing the project scope:

  • Country
  • Age
  • Gender
  • Logins
  • Profile: company, student or VET centre
  • In case of students, biographical info and curriculum excerpt
  • In case of companies, also those data included in the profile, that is environmental information, contact persons, required candidates, and any other information in the profile
  • In case of educational centres, also contextual information, interests, expertise and pathways
  • Users can upload images to their profile: we strongly recommend not to add any real photo in case of students and use  an avatar instead
  • Users can update their CV and add personal and sensitive information.
  • We also take measures concerning the courses performance,withdrawal rate and grades reached by students, profiled by gender, location and ages
  • We need to store and analyse your bug reports and tickets submitted to the technical support only for its purpose: so, for helping users to deal with the platform and for solving technical problems

We do not store your password, and we cannot access it: we only can restart your password.
