The concept of the BeMyBeat network is based in part on the publication of details regarding individual users to other users by making such details accessible via the BeMyBeat sports portal.
Categories of personally identifiable information collected by BeMyBeat
BeMyBeat collects information from users upon registration on its website and in connection with the use of any of BeMyBeat's applications. The personally identifiable information collected by BeMyBeat falls in the following categories:
Every user can change the privacy settings applicable to her account. In this way, the user can decide, to a certain extent, which personally identifiable information is collected with respect to such user (see below, Item 3.1); and define who can see personally identifiable information that is collected (see below, Item 3.2).
Use and sharing of personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information with third parties
By registering, the user explicitly agrees that BeMyBeat shall have the right to use all automatically collected personally identifiable information, in accordance with the privacy settings of such user, for purposes of the BeMyBeat applications. BeMyBeat does not pass on personally identifiable information (see Item 2, above) to third parties, except as required by law or with the explicit consent of the user. BeMyBeat implements all reasonable measures to prevent the unauthorized access by third parties to saved details. The user explicitly consents to the use of non-personally identifiable information by advertising networks included in the mobile applications for the purpose of displaying banner ads (e.g., AdMobs).
