Privacy policy

Data protection is also very important for us! Both the protection of data of our employees and the protection of data of our customers as well as the visitors and users of our website is very important to us.

Collection and processing of personal data

As a rule, you can visit the pages of 2Leadership GmbH without us requiring any personal data from you. Personal data is only collected if you provide us with this information voluntarily, for example in the context of a contact request.

Use and disclosure of personal data and earmarking

All personal data collected, processed and used within the framework of the direct Internet services of 2Leadership GmbH are collected, processed and used in accordance with the applicable regulations for the protection of personal data, only for the purpose of contract processing and to protect our own legitimate business interests with regard to the consultation and support of our customers and interested parties.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry. We will not share this information without your consent.

The data entered in the contact form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a). DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the time of the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that enables us to check whether you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only collected on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.

The data entered in the newsletter registration form will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a) DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. via the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already completed shall not be affected by the revocation.

The data deposited with us for the purpose of ordering the newsletter is stored by us from the newsletter to your subscription and deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that is stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remains unaffected.

Registration on this website

You can register on our website in order to use additional functions on the website. We only use the data entered to use the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information required for registration must be provided in full. In the event of important changes, e.g. in the context of the offer or in the event of technically necessary changes, we will use the e-mail address provided during registration to inform you. The processing of the data entered during registration is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a). DSGVO). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing already completed remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data collected during registration is stored by us for as long as you have registered on our website and then deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
