We collect, process and use data for the reasons above unless there are more specific reasons, which we will give when collecting that data (e.g. for applicants). We do not use data other than for its intended purpose in each case.
Personal Data collected automatically
When you visit our websites, we record the following data:
- your IP address;
- the data you requested from the website;

- the website from which your accessing system came to our website;
- the server reply code on the request from your browser;

This information is required:

These purposes state our legitimate interests for the temporary storage of data on the legal basis of Art. 6 para 1 lit.a) GDPR.
Personal Data obtained from you directly
We record and process information you enter on our websites or send us otherwise. This includes data you enter in forms or contact fields or select from lists or menus.
There are some points in our websites where you can send us information by uploading documents via those websites to our servers. That is what happens when you apply online, for example.
We also record and process Personal Data when you email someone at LC GLOBAL®. This concerns the contents of your emails as such, but also data obtained from queries to our email servers, such as sender and addressee IDs, time stamp, errors or grounds for refusal if the mail does not get through. The legal basis for such data processing is Art. 6 para 1 lit.a) GDPR.
When you provide your Personal Data, we will ask you to give your consent for processing that data. In that case, the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para 1 lit.a) GDPR.

Profile and login information for access-protected areas
There are some access-restricted areas of the websites for which you need to register before you can use them, e.g. the recruiting/applicant page or the LC GLOBAL Academy. When registering, there are some details you have to enter that the registration form itself requires, particularly your email address, a password, and some information about yourself. Any other details you enter are voluntary. We process and save this data in accordance with this data protection statement.
In some areas of our websites, for example on our change and innovation blog CHANGE TALK or our online courses of the LC GLOBAL Academy, some of your registration data or contributions you make can be seen by other users once they log in. It is up to you to decide whether you want other registered users of this site to see your information and, if so, what. You can change these settings at any time. During the registration process, we will ask you to give your consent for processing and saving that data. The legal basis for processing that data is Art. 6 para 1 lit.a) GDPR.

Newsletters/marketing and information services
There are many points on LC GLOBAL®'s websites where we offer newsletters or comparable marketing and information services. If you would like to use these, we will need a working email address for you and details to enable us to verify that this email address is really yours, or that the person whose address it, agrees to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, an email will be sent to the email address you provided asking for confirmation in a Double-Opt-in procedure after signing up for our newsletter. That is the only information we gather. The legal basis for sending you newsletters is Art. 6 para 1 lit.a) GDPR.
The Personal Data collected when registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively for the following purposes:
- Sending the newsletter
- Consulting/coaching/online or video courses, marketing, and advertising
- Designing the newsletter according to your needs
- Composing the topics of the newsletter according to your interests
Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by email if necessary for offering the newsletter service or for registration, for example in the event of changes to the offer of the newsletter or changes in technical conditions.
You can withdraw your consent to your data and email address being recorded and used to send newsletters and object to the use of your Personal Data for marketing purposes at any time with future effect, either by using the link enclosed to each newsletter email we send you or, alternatively, by directly contacting LC GLOBAL® via mail, email or using the contact details given above under Contact.
