3.2. Managing Cookies
A cookie is a small file distributed with the pages of a website and stored by the browser on the hard drive of your computer, tablet or mobile. The information that it contains is sent to the website’s servers the next time the user visits it, and so allows the website’s owner to track the user’s activity.
It is worth pointing out that the word “cookie” also covers any other technical tracking process such as “scripts” in general. A script is a fragment of programming code used to make a website work interactively. Lastly, “web beacons” and “tracking pixels” and “social media cookies” are also cookies.
Cookies make it possible to customise content and offer the features required for a website to work properly, such as checking baskets or saving language preferences for example.

The legal basis on which this processing is based is your consent.

5. Will your data be passed on to anybody?
Your data may be passed on to other companies belonging to Be IP for the purposes mentioned above.
Your data may also be passed on to partners of Be IP for marketing purposes, but only if you have given your specific consent for this.
Within the context of providing our services, including in particular for marketing purposes, we may need to subcontract all or some of our work to technical subcontractors, to whom we are bound by contracts.
Be IP demands that its subcontractors respect the legislation on data protection and offer adequate guarantees about the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational measures, so that the processing fulfils the requirements of applicable data protection legislation, and that they guarantee protection for your rights.
We do not sell or disclose in any way whatsoever the data that we collect about you to third parties.
In certain circumstances, our website and our applications will provide you with plugins for different social networks. If you choose to interact with a social media site such as Facebook or Twitter, your activity on our website or via our applications will also be accessible on that social media site. Please read the privacy protection policies for these social networks for detailed information about the collection and transfer of personal information, about your rights and about how you can change your privacy settings.

8. Information about children
As a general rule, we do not deliberately collect personal information relating to children under the age of 13. If we find out that we have inadvertently collected information about children under the age of 13, we will take measures to delete the information as quickly as possible, unless the law in force obliges us to keep it.
When we know that a child is over the age of 13 but is regarded as a minor by virtue of the law in force, we will secure authorisation from a parent/guardian before using that child’s personal information.
9. Links to other websites and services
Our websites may contain links to third-party websites, and some of our services give you access to third-party services (such as social media sites).
We have no control over how the third-party sites and services process your personal data. We do not check the third-party websites and services, and we are not responsible for these third-party websites and services or their practices in relation to privacy protection. Please read the privacy policies for any third-party websites or services that you access from our websites or services.
We have developed suitable technical and organisational security rules to avoid the destruction, loss, falsification, modification, unauthorised access, accidental communication to third parties, as well as any other unauthorised processing of data.

Be IP can never be held liable for alleged indirect losses such as, without this list being exhaustive: loss of data, financial or commercial loss, loss of profits, increase in overhead costs, disruption to schedules.
In addition, Be IP cannot be held responsible for any loss resulting from any unlawful handling of data by third parties (data theft, virus, phishing or any other computer-related crimes).
We would also like to point out to you that links to the Website may contain hypertext links and other references to other websites that we do not manage and we do not control and to which these provisions do not apply. We are not responsible for the content of the websites or for offers, products or services offered by them. We therefore recommend that you read the data protection rules for every site that you visit carefully, as those rules may be different from these ones.
