The website [ https://statesaiia.com/ ] or [https://statesaiia.wordpress.com/], hereinafter the site, is hosted on WordPress.com; a hosting platform for sites and blogs whose privacy policies, (which contain information regarding the cookies used and their purpose of use), can be found at the following links: http://automattic.com/privacy/ https://automattic.com/privacy-notice/ and https://en.support.wordpress.com/cookies/
Statement of intents
Our main objectives are: quality education, research and scientific / technical dissemination and of elements related to engineering, in particular with Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Specific support for researchers, experts and other professionals involved in areas related to education and science.
It is not a task, nor our thought: to seek lucrative purposes by the very nature (idiosyncrasy) of our association, not for profit, and by the ideological principles that motivate and induce us to produce and promote digital or printed content of scientific / technical topics .
The sustainability of activities, however, related to our objectives obliges us to seek and sometimes seek funding sources to be able to undertake and thus make this initiative viable; whose tendency (inertia) will always be ‘altruistic doing’. For sustainability, we will initially seek the support of government initiatives focused on technical areas, european projects for the same purpose, or grants from foundations or private entities that allocate some type of funds or support. That we look for it does not mean in any way that we currently have it or get it in a certain way in the future. That is a very complex task according to the reality that we live in people related to engineering, science or scientific work. Nothing new on the horizon.
Promote the use of all vernacular languages (native) in technical scientific publications, in particular the official languages of the EU and Spanish.
Promote publications of research articles and research or technical books that could be of special relevance for citizens and society as a whole. A society to which we understand that it is a joint task to involve in these areas that greatly affect their daily lives.
We maintain that education must be: freedom, no costs, open and available to everyone. For this reason all our works will be licensed under a Creative Commons license CC BY-NC-ND 4.0.
We also maintain that Open Science and open educational resources (OER) are a task that involves all of us, and that we will encourage in this type of publications. A good example of this is our open guide for publications publicly exposed here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Z0FvfOtqRm1KI67Utu5svyouudlAfa2LXrDFPAkRT1Q/edit?usp=sharing
In accordance with the provisions of current law, we inform all users of this site that they provide or will provide their personal data, that these will be incorporated into an automated file created by wordPress.com and guarded by the administrator to which you have access Automattic, as the owner of the WordPress.com blog platform.
What personal data we collect and why we collect them
- The main purpose of data collection is the proper functioning of the site, that is, knowing who we are talking to in order to respond, moderate and keep you informed of new entries in case it is so desired. We want to interact with you and not simply be a ‘digital rag’ that roams the Internet.
- According to our ‘Statement of intents’ other additional possible purposes (such as grants, donations, etc.) would necessarily be done in order to contribute or help the sustainability of activities related to education, contribute to academic research tasks, and for better dissemination of content and knowledge in general. We will never directly contribute to the commercialization of personal data or to allow dark policies for their use. These are policies that we consider particularly delectable and that we will not encourage.
- Within additional purposes, for imperative or imposition of performance standards wordpress.com (Automattic), you will probably see advertising on which we have no ability to manage ourselves and that is the sole responsibility of Automattic, as owner of the platform from blog’s WordPress.com. And whose advertising content we have to admit because the rules of the game impose it on us. Nobody gives anything for nothing in these times (that is probably a matter of necessity in the case of Automattic and ours, if necessary). It would be desirable if they were advertisements related to the academic world, at least. However, we defend the legitimacy and commitment of the wordpress.com and Automattic site with the dissemination of content such as ours, commendable work. Our criticisms (rather analysis) must always be understood as constructive to a working morphology (Open Source as well) that we necessarily have to say, simply, “thank you very much, WordPress.” And we are also proud to promote and use this platform so widely used worldwide, https://es.wordpress.org/. The engineering world tends to support and see it with very good eyes in general. And support for community Spanish is also notable.
Comments and contact forms
- When visitors leave comments on the site, or access a form, the data is collected through the wordpress.com site shown in the forms as comments and in the contact form (or other futures). Also the visitor’s IP address and the browser user agent chain to help spam detection. This data usually comes to us in the form of text such as email through the outgoing email manager of wordpress.com (email@example.com) or similar. It is also a security measure against spammer or not very orthodox actions.
- The wordpress.com policies can be found on the Automattic policies website, at the url: (https://automattic.com/es/privacy/) that uses a license of the type (Creative Commons Share Alike); and that we also declare and sponsor for our site, licensed our ‘Privacy Policies’ for as much as (Creative Commons Share Alike) as well. Therefore you are authorized to use our policies, in accordance with this type of licensing.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Website visitors (with perhaps spurious intentions) can download and extract location data from images. Pay attention because they can be sensitive or compromising data for your privacy or that of your environment. They are called ‘metadata‘.
How to erase metadata: To prevent more people than you want from accessing data in images, think before publishing or sharing if it's worth it. Therefore, inform yourself if the site where you want to include it deletes or not the metadata(Facebook,Twitter,WhatsApp or Instagram does it automatically)or else delete the metadata before sharing. We tell you how to do it: From a computer. Select the image saved on your computer and press the right mouse button. A menu will open. Select 'Properties'. And the "Details" tab. Click on the highlighted phrase "Remove Properties and Personal Information" and accept.From a mobile.If you have a smartphone, and you don't want to install a specific application to remove the metadata from the images, at least you can disable the 'location' from the camera settings to avoid sending the position from which the picture was taken. Since each phone manufacturer can modify the camera's configuration options menus,it is possible that your smartphone may not display exactly the same one listed in the options, although they will be similar.(Source,OCU).

Analytics and monitoring
With whom we share your data
Google Analytics (Not currently in effect) With the intention of collecting the most useful and used information by our users, we can share data with Google Analytics whose main web address is https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/provision/#/provision.
As Google specifies in its terms in ‘Terms and Services’
As we indicated at the beginning, our site is managed through the wordpress.com digital platform, so our entity also had, and has, to accept the policy of ‘Domain and privacy registrations’ contained in https://es.support. wordpress.com/dominios/registros-de-dominio-y-privacidad/. We also have to comply with the associated privacy policies of Automattic listed at https://automattic.com/privacy/ and other third parties that could manage or intervene with them jointly. Please keep in mind that we cannot miss these commitments or intervene directly in them.
Automattic indicates on its website (Privacy Policies) points that we consider relevant to expose you later for a better information of yours and that you have it in mind for any management or doubt that involves you with us to deliver data, in order to make inquiries, subscribe, etc. Mostly many of these points will affect us as direct users of the site, but in an improper way (as an indirect user) they can also affect you as well.
Information We Collect
Google Forms is a web application that is normally used to collect data in opinion polls, queries, file submission for the purpose of publishing or reviewing certain items, etc. In certain forms, for example the one to send articles here, (or texts in general), you will be asked for personal data that usually are: name, email and maybe some identifier related to the publishing activity (ORCID or other). This request can be accompanied by a small survey or interview to take into account personal aspects that could be of interest and, in addition, would be applicable to the fact of ‘publish’. PURPOSE: collect articles to publish and some suggestions of yours to better fit your profile as a writer on our site. It is therefore a transfer to third parties, Google Form, whose policies you can find here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en. Forms with this typology (morphology) allow us to know through them (usually a linked Excel sheet) all your answers and the personal data mentioned. You should keep in mind then that interacting with these forms means accepting Google Form policies as an external agent and, at the same time, accepting ours. You can request that the data we receive through these forms can be sent to you or directly deleted. To do this you must request it on our contact form or at the address listed in the header.
How long we keep your data
[* C2] If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so that any follow-up comment can be recognized and approved automatically instead of keeping them in a moderation queue. For users who register on our website (if applicable), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also (can) view and edit that information. You will not need anyone’s permission to permanently delete your account.
[* C2] The duration and type of storage will depend (also / or exclusively) on the policy of the wordpress.com site and perhaps on other third parties necessary for the service and whose scope we cannot manage or determine. Our intention is to advise you and indicate the criteria of our entity and also inform you that you should keep in mind the probable dependence of our site wordpress.com and / or third parties.
What rights do you have over your data
Where we send your data
Visitor comments can be verified through an automated spam detection service (usually Akismet). This policy is within the attributions of (Automattic) wordpress.com initially.
How we protect your data and what data breach procedures we have implemented
All persons who have access to our records (related to user or customer data) due to labor or collaboration issues, maintain a commitment to confidentiality regarding his promese. The data that comes to us indirectly, that is, files of services provided by us through Automattic (wordpress.com) such as communications by email of any kind based on forms or others; and (maybe) proofs or economic receipts are for our exclusive administrative use or we keep them and handle them by legal imperative. These records will never be used for purposes other than the nature of the management and communication for which they were created, nor will they be exposed to third parties so that they can be marketed for other purposes. We expressly and tacitly disapprove of such behaviors as business policy. We do not find it feasible to apply particular preventive policies to prevent abuse or illegal activities on our site that would result in unauthorized intrusions in hosting or servers that contain or maintain data, hacking or other techniques for criminal or obscure purposes because the assurance of backups, web antivirus, log audits, availability assurance and communication of immediate events will be under the exclusive supervision of Autommattic and beyond our reach. However, you can always use our contact form to ask us any questions you deem appropriate about security breaches in the wordpress.com platform that could affect your security and privacy, and we will try to work together to ensure adequate compliance with the current legislation among all. Our performance and the information we have will always be at your disposal. Our technical team will always watch preventively (but inevitably ex-post) the facts through site monitoring and audits using tools such as, for example, web scan (SiteCheck). Available at: https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/ . In the following figure we show you an example of securing the site https://statesaiia.wordpress.com. PROCEDURES: to find a security breach in these routine checks that we carry out, we will immediately notify our users and we will contact Automattic (WordPress.com) informing them of the anomaly detected and requesting an intervention as urgent as possible, depending on the Introsusion level detected and the severity of the problem. The anomaly detected to prevent our users will also be reported publicly on our website.
What automated decisions we make with user data
To comply with the GDPR law and other applicable regulations, if the security of the data stored on the website is ever compromised, we will notify users in a timely manner within 72 hours after the first notification of that violation of security.
Regulatory industry disclosure requirements
For the purposes of relations with third parties, or even after government parties, we have declared within our knowledge and possibilities the policies and procedures that are the basis for our ‘Policy and Privacy’. Currently we do not have any impediment that would block us from performing the described, nor imperative legal relationship with other entities (except government requests that must be met by legal imperative) that may need to have the records we handle. If you detect any anomaly or correction that we should make, please contact us at the contact details in the head of these policies. Your collaboration, citizen collaboration and personal commitment, please us and we thank you in order to improve the safety of all.
These, among others, are your rights in the European space: Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (Text with EEA relevance).
