The legal basis for such processing is article 6 (1) c) of the GDPR. The processing of shareholders’ personal data is essential for shareholders and their representatives to participate in the Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting and to hold it in accordance with the Stock Corporation Act (AktG), as it is not possible to participate and exercise rights properly without the provision of data. 
Mayr-Melnhof Karton Aktiengesellschaft employs external service businesses such as notaries public, attorneys, banks and IT service providers in order to hold the Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting. They only receive such personal data from Mayr-Melnhof Karton Aktiengesellschaft that are necessary for them to perform the service they are commissioned to provide.

Mayr-Melnhof Karton Aktiengesellschaft is also legally obliged to submit personal data of shareholders (in particular the attendance list) to the commercial register as part of the notarial record (section 120 of the Stock Corporation Act – AktG).

Shareholder data are anonymized or erased as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected or processed unless other legal obligations require their further storage. Legal obligations to provide documentary proof and retain data arise in particular in connection with company, stock corporation and takeover legislation, tax and fiscal legislation and money-laundering provisions. In the context of clarifying and asserting claims, and possible in connection with legal proceedings, it may in individual cases be necessary to store data for the duration of the limitation period plus the time until the legal proceedings have been finally concluded.

Every shareholder has a right to information, rectification, restriction, objection and erasure at all times with regard the processing of personal data and also has a right to data portability in accordance with chapter III GDPR.

Shareholders may assert these rights against Mayr-Melnhof Karton Aktiengesellschaft at no charge via the e-mail address datenschutz@mayr-melnhof.com or via the following contact details of the Data Protection Officer:
