Who are we?

The widespread use of the Internet and new technologies in recent years has brought many changes to the way we communicate, work, and live as a whole. Unfortunately, some people are taking advantage of the new technology to engage in criminal activities, such as spreading images of child sexual abuse and hate speech.

The Spletno oko hotline allows Internet users to anonymously report hate speech and child sexual abuse images if they come across them online. The hotline was established in September 2006 at Safer Internet Program and began taking reports in March 2007, after cooperation with the police and the necessary technology were put in place.

Hotline Spletno oko is part of the Safer internet Centre, which is coordinated by the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences, in cooperation with partners Arnes, Slovenian Association of Friends of Youth and Centre MISSS  (Youth Information and Counseling Centre of Slovenia). The hotline is funded by the European Commission (INEA agency) and the Slovenian Ministry of Public Administration.

Members of Advisory Board of Safer Internet Center are also the Office of the State Prosecutor General of the Republic of Slovenia, the General Directorate of Police, representatives of the media  and representatives of other organizations, working in the field of child protection.
