Who we are

Our website address is: http://economic-genderviolence.eu

ECOVIO is a EU funded project led by the University of Extremadura; specifically, the project coordinator is Inmaculada Dominguez-Fabián. However, the management of the site is subcontracted to another entity: Senior Europa S.L. – Kveloce I+D+i with VAT number or “CIF” B97808984, located in Valencia (Spain). The page of the subcontracted entity is http://kveloce.com/. The data sent through commentaries, posts and forms within the website may be seen by the Kveloce I+D+i staff.

In addition, other partners could have access to the internal back-end of the site: these are the Sociedad Española de Asistencia Sociosanitaria (Spain), the University of Valencia (Spain) and Gruppo R (Italy). More information about the consortium can be found at http://economic-genderviolence.eu/our-consortium

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.

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 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 will collect the contact information you send through the contact form and the newsletter subscription: these data will be used ONLY for the purposes specified in these two forms, which are to contact you or to send you the newsletter respectively. We will not use your personal contact data for any other purpose and we will not share with third parties your information except strict legal obligation.

Additional information
