Like millions of other mobile applications, we use Google Analytics to understand how visitors interact with our system. Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about our users (you). It’s something like an advanced server log.
Google Analytics records things like:
What features of our app you use.
How long you stay on each screen.
What kind of device and operating system you are using.
And quite a bit more: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
The collected information allows us to better understand:
the kind of people who use our application;
the devices and operating systems they mostly appear to use.
The above allow us to better design future versions, enable or disable features and understand our impact.
Occasionally, we may compile aggregate statistics about the number of user we have, as well as a breakdown by country, device, or similar grouping. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.
All of our activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
The effective date of this policy is Jan 1st, 2017. We will communicate any changes through our website (scify.org) or through the application itself.
Guilty or Innocent | Are journalists part of the political story rather than its narrators?
To whom are they accountable?
Free entrance - Registration
On Wednesday, September 19th 2018, 12:00 pm, Oikomedia and The Caravan's Journal, invite you to Impact Hub Athens (Karaiskaki 28, 10554 Athens) for an event to answer: Are journalists part of the political story rather than its narrators?
The central idea evolves around what we consider "public interest" and with this Mock Trial, show that we promote the idea of a stronger engagement of the media with the public to whom journalists "should" be accountable. In the current political climate, with lots of media distrust in many western democracies, journalists are seen as part of the political story rather than simply its narrators.
The discussion will be held in English
Registration: 11.30 a.m.
Light lunch will follow the discussion.

SciFY is included in the inspiring practices in the EU Commission's Entrepreneurship Competence Framework guide to the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework.
Why is this important? Because, as the guide says in the introduction, that is how we are changing the world around us: "The entrepreneurship competence is increasingly recognised as a competence for life, relevant to personal development and fulfilment, finding and progressing in employment, as well as initiating new ventures ranging from community campaigns, social enterprises to new start-up businesses."

Just before the end of 2017 we installed at the Special Elementary School for the Blind in Kallithea, our application: ICStudy, ehich allows to students with limited vision to see what it is written on the board and read their electronic books. Basically, to participate in class!
We discussed about the pilot and the future improvements. We want to thank one more time KEAT (Special Elementary School for the Blind in Kallithea) that gives us the chance to achieve this goal: accessible education for all!
On December 9th Mr. Vassilis Giannakopoulos, Marketing & Impact Manager of SciFY presented our Assistive Technology projects on a talk show of the Greek Parliament Channel in a discussion about the enhancement of accessibility through education and technology.
