sorry for late reply, it's a weekedn :D

This seems possible but I does not know how the other component save informations.

Anyway to make this you can build a simple plugin, follow these steps:
- Download, Install and Enable Skeleton Plugin (you will find it at
- Open file /plugins/jsn/skeleton/skeleton.php
- remove samples functions: triggerFieldAvatarUpdate, triggerProfileUpdate
- add function like this:
public function triggerProfileUpdate($user,&$data,$changed,$isNew){ 
$alias_of_checkbox = 'HERE_THE_ALIAS';
$values = (array) json_decode($data[$alias_of_checkbox]);
// the $values var will contain a PHP array with values of the checkbox:
$db = JFactory::getDbo();
foreach($values as $value) {
// Query for each value
$query = '....';
This code will be triggered when user update own profile.

NOTE: This code is not tested and not supported, this is only for example purpose. You need to have a minimum of PHP knowledges
