After you have successfully registered, you can log on to every participating platform using your log-in details. In addition, if you have already logged in to one of the participating Platforms, you can then use all other participating Platforms immediately without having to go through additional log-in procedures (unless other information is required in order to use the platform in question). You thus receive a single identity that enables you to be identified and verified by the participating Platforms.

This is the case in particular if you have provided false information when or after registering and/or log-in details (especially the password) have been disclosed or passed on in breach of these SSO terms and conditions of use. In this event, you will be permitted to re-register only with our prior written consent.
6.6. Amendments to the SSO terms and conditions of use
