In the situation where personal data about you is registered by a Centi Customer, that Centi Customer is the Data Controller of your personal data. If you have privacy concerns or any questions in this situation, we recommend that you contact that company.

If a Centi Customer is linked to your account in the Centi Platform, personal data connected to your account may also be shared and disclosed to that Centi Customers. For instance, if a Centi Customer lists you as a shareholder, and you register your address and a profile picture in your account, your address and profile picture will be copied to the shareholder register entry in that Centi Company.
