Only when the confirmation link is clicked, the process continues. Your email address is visible to admins and authors of the channels and academies whose offerings you use in chunkx.
  • Voluntary: Username / Nickname
    Your username or nickname is an imaginary name that you may choose yourself and that can only be assigned once in chunkx. This can be used by chunkx to publish information about rankings. It is also visible to admins and authors of the channels and academies whose offerings you use in chunkx.
    Users of the chunkx creator must assign a username, as this is the author name visible to other users.
  • First name
    The first name is recorded for correct and polite addressing, user identification, and for issuing learning certificates.
  • Last name
    The last name is recorded for correct and polite addressing as well as for user identification and for issuing learning certificates.

Users can cancel the process if they do not wish to answer the questions posed by the Academy. The entered data together with your e-mail address, your username and your first and last name are then visible for the admins of the academy.

  1. User evaluation in the chunkx app

In order for you to use the functionalities of chunkx, various data are collected, processed and stored:

  • Your subscribed channels
  • Your processed tasks
  • With what result you worked on them. Evaluation results can be summarized by chunkx in anonymous or pseudonymous form and processed and passed on for statistical purposes, quality improvements and marketing. We also use the data for research and development purposes to develop new products, services and offerings.
  • Only you have access to your personal evaluation. This does not necessarily apply if your chunkx user is associated with a company, club, or organization that provides continuing education in chunkx. In this case, it depends on the particular company, club or organization how much the authors of the channels and administrators of the particular company, club or organization can see.
    Please ask your respective company, academy, club or organization which of your profile and evaluation data can be viewed by them.
  • Learning goals are another feature where not only you have access to your personal evaluation. Learning objectives can be conditions of certificates issued by academies in chunkx or authors. For this, it is necessary to show them how advanced you are with the learning goal. In other words, as soon as a channel has a learning objective and you access the content, the author or admin of the channel and, if applicable, the academy will see how far along you are with the learning objective. But again, no other data of yours will be visible, e.g. how well or poorly you did on certain learning tasks.
