These profiles may relate to a single web offering of Axosnet or, if created in the Axosnet Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service, may also allow you to access other web offerings of Axosnet or of other entities of the Axosnet Group, or both (irrespective of any consent granted under the section “Forwarding your Personal Data to other Axosnet companies.” below). It is, however, always your choice which of these additional web offerings you use and your Personal Data is only forwarded to them once you initially access them. Kindly note that without your consent for Axosnet to create such user profiles Axosnet will not be in a position to offer such services to you where your consent is a statutory requirement that Axosnet can provide these services to you.
Within any web offering, beyond the mere provision of access your profile is used to personalize interaction with other users (for example, by way of messaging or follow functionality) and by Axosnet to foster the quality of communication and collaboration through such offerings and for Axosnet to provide gamification elements (gamification is the process of taking something that already exists, such as a website, an enterprise application, or an online community, and integrating game mechanics into it to motivate participation, engagement, and loyalty).
