Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of technically necessary cookies. Other cookies, however, enable us to perform various analyses.

Cookies are, for example, able to recognise the browser you are using when you visit our website again and to transmit various information to us. With the help of cookies, we can, among other things, make our website more user-friendly and effective for you, for example by tracking your use of our website and determining your preferred settings (e.g. country and language settings).

If third parties process information via cookies, they collect the information directly via your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device.

Legal basis for the use of cookies

In case of technically necessary cookies, the legal basis for the processing of personal data lies in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

If you have given us your consent to the use of cookies for statistical or analytical purposes on the basis of the consent manager we provide on the website (“consent manager”), the lawfulness of the use is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

2.3 Use and application of Google Maps

Type and extent of processing on behalf of Google Maps

Content from Google Maps (“Google”) is implemented on our website. By visiting a sub-page of our website on which Google Maps is integrated, data about your behaviour when using Google Maps is transmitted to Google and processed on behalf of Google. The processing and transmission to Google does not take place automatically, but exclusively through active clicking by the user. Only through this conscious use data about your behaviour when using Google Maps is transmitted to and processed by Google. Google thereby receives, for example, the information that you have selected the corresponding sub-page of our website. The data processed by Google may include, in particular, your IP address and location data, which, however, will not be collected without consent (usually executed within the framework of the settings on your mobile devices).

Purpose and legal basis for Google Maps

Google processes this data as usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of market research and/or needs-based design of Google Maps. If you are a Google customer and logged into a Google service, this data will be linked directly to your Google account. If you do not wish this to happen, you have to log out of Google before visiting our website.

The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR. This serves as legal basis for our company in terms of processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

In this case, the provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually required and is also not required for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide any personal data. However, failure to provide personal data may result in you not being able to use some functions of our website or not being able to use it to its full extent.

Disable function of Google Maps

If you wish to prevent any transfer of personal data to Google, you should avoid using the Google Maps functions. Regardless of this, we recommend that you regularly log out of your user account after using a social network, especially before activating integrated contents, as this will help you to avoid a match with your profile with the respective provider.

3. Legal basis of processing

We process personal data if you provided your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party of or for the performance of measures serving to initiate a contract (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR), for the performance of a legal obligation to which Stakeholder Reporting GmbH is subject to (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR) or for the protection of overriding legitimate interests of the controller or a third party (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The legitimate interests can be either the provision of evidence for law enforcement and damage claims, the Corporate presentation purposes and public relations or the provision of technical security.

Retention periods of personal data

Stored personal data are deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been fulfilled and there are no legitimate grounds for further retention of the data.

We will inform you in the individual processing operations about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage.

Irrespective of this, we store your personal data in individual cases for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and if there are statutory retention obligations.

4. Data transfers to third countries

In order to ensure an adequate level of data protection at all times, if we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will either use the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses with appropriate additional measures to guarantee a comparable level of data protection or take other appropriate safeguards as set out in Art. 46 GDPR.

5. Data transfers to third parties

We only disclose your personal data that we process on our website to third parties if it is required for the fulfilment of the purposes and is covered by a legal basis in the individual case (e.g. consent or safeguarding legitimate interests). In addition, we disclose personal data to third parties in individual cases if this serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Possible recipients may then be, for example, law enforcement authorities, lawyers, auditors, courts, etc.
