Deletion of Data

Personal data processed by Centrifuge is deleted as soon as there is no need to store the data anymore – as is the case, for example, for an email address when the user has unsubscribed from our newsletter. We do, however, respect statutory storage requirements.

Comments and Posts

IP addresses or other device identifiers of users leaving comments or posting content on this website might be stored. This is for our security, in the event that a user submits illegal content. The data is permanently stored together with the comment or post as long as the user does not dissent.

Newsletter

Users can leave their email address to receive our email newsletter. The user’s consent is verified by an opt-in email, whereby the user confirms the email address. The user can unsubscribe at any time and request the deletion of the email address.

Sending the newsletter is performed by „MailChimp“, a US newsletter service provider operated by Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (MailChimp data privacy policy: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy).

The newsletter service provider might use recipient’s data in a pseudonymous form, meaning without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve their own services. However, the newsletter service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to address them themselves or to pass the data on to third parties.
