We undertake to respect your privacy in accordance with this policy and Spanish Basic Law 15/1999 on the protection of personal data, or those which may replace in the future.
A. Data collection
Web forms. If you submit any webform to us (Registration, Contacts, Comments), we collect the data indicated in the forms and voluntarily submitted by you, including name and email address. Required data is indicated. This data is used for processing your request and contacting you for further communication and other uses set out below.
Registration. On registering for our services, we will collect the following personal data: name, surname, email address. This data is obligatory and if they are not provided, an account cannot be created.
Prohibited data. In all events it is forbidden to submit to us or upload to the Services, including your user account, any data that contains sensitive data that relates to identifiable persons, such as: your and or third party’s racial origin, membership in a trade union, religion, ideology and sexual life, your and or third party’s health, unless it proves necessary in order to assert any handicap or disability situation for labour purposes; or your and or third party’s relative to the commission of criminal offences or proceedings and associated penalties or fines.
B. Data use
User data. You can include a photo in your profile and other personal information to characterize your "user" account, but it is not required. You can update and edit the information at any time. It also includes the information you choose to share to perform an action, such as when you add a friend or subscribe to a Qube. We may also receive information about you from your friends and other users of beQbe, to publish a Qube, a photo or a comment. With regard to this information, we are merely "Data processors" on behalf of these friends and users, and process this information as indicated below (section E. Data Processor).
Advertiser Communications. We use the information we receive about you, including information you post on beQbe such as your user profile and the Qubes you create and subscribe to and your ratings, to offer general and specific advertisements of interest to you. When an advertiser creates a communication en beQbe, they are given the opportunity to choose the recipients based on the relevant Qubes. That is, if you indicate that you are interested in something, for example, that you like a Qube, and the content includes topics such as products, brands, artists, works, websites and events, you may receive notifications related to these topics (for example, company X could ask beQbe to send electronic commercial communications to subscribers in Qubes containing company X products, with the agreement of the Qube’s creator). beQbe will send the communication from the advertiser to people meeting the criteria it has selected, but does not indicate to the advertiser who the recipients are (user data). After sending the communication, we provide reports to the advertisers with no personal data, on the performance of its ads. See below "C. Customizing” if you do not wish to receive these communications.
Commercial communications. By completing and sending us your details, you accept to receive electronic commercial communications relating to the Service and the Qubes to which you subscribe, and related products and services of BEQBE users and partners in accordance with applicable law, including alerts, notifications, newsletters, offers and promotions. If you do not want to receive marketing communications on the topics of the Qubes you've created or subscribed to, you can reject them by using the tag of "unsubscribe" (you completely unsubscribe from the Qube).
C. Qubes: personalization and communication / disclosure by the User
Information in beQbe is managed in Qubes, and these may contain personal data such as photos of people, videos, names and addresses, etc. We offer several tools for you to edit and customize the data treatment within the platform.
The user profile is an Qube, and the information it contains will be treated like a public Qube indicated below. Your name, profile picture, description, links to our social networks, city and country are public whenever you have published. Also, registered and unregistered users of beQbe can see, automatically, the Qubes that are stored in your "showcase" and your "public collections", and the list of your friends ("friends").
Label your Qubes
For each Qube you create, you can tag it as:
- Private: Qube will be accessible only to owner and who have to received the Qube link.
- Public: the Qube will be accessible and visible to all beQbe users, who may make comments.
This applies for a type Qube as other content.
The Qubes that are labelled "public" as well as third party Qubes that you can see in beQbe are public (i.e., the information you see in them is public). This implies, for example, that if you post a comment on this Qube (both your Qubes and those of others), the content of this comment will be public and visible to everyone.
And inside the Qube, in the section called 'Saved' you can see the profiles of users who have published this Qube in their "showcase" or public collection.
Managing Qubes, Collections
You can subscribe to third party Qubes and add them to your collections (public collections, private collections) from the main beQbe area or in your own user profile. From these collections, you can publish Qubes in your "Showcase". These collections allow beQbe users to see information on your tastes, interests and person.
The Qubes in your private collection will not be accessible by third parties. The Qubes you've created, signed or added to your collection, and stored in your "Showcase" or a "public collection" will be visible for other beQbe users.
D. Data Security
We have adopted technical and organizational measures to preserve and protect your personal information from unauthorized use or access and from being altered, lost or misused, taking into account the technological state of art, the features of the information stored and the risks to which information is exposed.

F. Technical data.

G. Social networks
The current version of BeQbe uses social media features ("Social Features") provided by companies like Facebook, Twitter (in the future, probably others as Google+, LinkedIn, etc.), to enable information sharing across these channels. Social Features are identified in beQbe with the logos of their respective companies. The cookie files associated to these are owned by the third parties who control them, so that these third parties are responsible for their use and not BEQBE.
We can not guarantee we have listed all cookies you may receive from third parties, as these may change at any time insofar as their needs change.
When you visit a page on the website beQbe that includes Social Features, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the corresponding social network. Social Features provide to the social networks information to which you accessed on the beQbe site and, if logged into the social network, your visit may be recorded on your account for this service. For example, if you click on the Facebook “Like” button, that information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. Even if not logged on to the social network, nor do you click on a Ssocial Feature of beQbe site, this feature may transmit your IP address to the network.
