The registration on the website and the requests for information that you send us require that the interested party voluntarily provide us with the necessary information to be able to assist them or provide them with the Services. The obligation or necessity of providing us with these data will be marked with an asterisk (*) in the forms or sections corresponding to each service.

However, the interested party can freely refuse to provide us with these data or, later, revoke the consent previously granted to process their data, although that refusal will imply our impossibility of being able to attend to their request or continue with the registration in our platform.

Forvo has different social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to disseminate contents related to Forvo as well as to provide users with a way of contact. Forvo is responsible for the treatment of the data of its followers and contacts in social networks. Nevertheless, since the processing of personal data takes place within the framework of social networks whose suppliers impose operating rules, Forvo's obligations will be limited to those aspects in which the company is free to act. Under no circumstances will Forvo extract data from social networks, make profiles of its users or collect additional personal data related to tastes, hobbies or mode of use of social networks, without the express consent of those affected.
