Questions about the Webcast
 
1. what is a webcast?
A webcast is a transmission of audiovisual content over the Internet. The term is composed of two main components:
 
1. web: for World Wide Web, online or web-based
2. cast (of broadcast): for broadcasting, transmission or broadcasting
 
In a webcast - often also called a web event or streamed webinar - information is broadcast to an audience according to the one-to-many principle. The technical transmission always takes place online via streaming.
 
A webcast can either be broadcast live or in recorded form as an on-demand format.
 
2. How does a webcast work?
A webcast always takes place as a "one-to-many" transmission. This so-called one-to-many communication is a form of mass communication in which information is transmitted from a central point to a circle of participants. The transmission of the information is based on the classic sender-receiver model: one person presents and any number of participants watch. A webcast can thus be broadcast simultaneously to several hundred or even thousand participants.
 
3. What do I need to use a webcast?
A current, Internet-capable end device (computer, smartphone), a good Internet connection (for stream), a current web browser (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Edge, Safari, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox).
 
4. May I watch the video transmission while I change my vote?
Yes, simply open the video transmission with the right mouse button in a separate window or tab (link in new window/open tab). Please do not log out of the online TV service afterwards if you want to continue watching the video broadcast, but simply switch back to the video broadcast window/tab. However, you can close the voting window.
 
5. I cannot start the webcast. What could be the reason?
You may need to adjust your cookie settings. Click on the "key sign" in the browser field and then on Cookies and Website Data. Please allow all requested cookies.

Technical questions 1. Which browser can I use for the application?
You will need a browser which supports 256-bit-SSL encryption. In order to find out which version you currently use, please open either Netscape or Microsoft Internet Explorer. Then click on the question mark in the menu bar at the upper edge of the screen and then select "Info". A new window opens on your screen showing information on the browser version and the encryption.

2. What technology does LEONI AG use to ensure the security of my transactions?
LEONI AG allows you to access the internet service via a secure connection. Access is protected by entry of the shareholder ID number and an individual access number. Following activation by entry of an activation code (see question 3 under "General questions") which will be sent to you by separate e-mail immediately after your first-time registration, access is protected by your shareholder ID number and your self-issued password. In the case that you will not receive a confirmation e-mail you can re-enter your e-mail address and request a new activation code.

LEONI AG uses the latest Commerce Secure Server with RSA encryption. This means that the connection is secured by a 256-bit Secure Socket Layer or SSL protocol. This protocol ensures that the confidential data exchanged between your secure internet browser and our secure servers is protected.

3. How can I tell whether my internet connection is secure?
Looking at the Web address is one way to recognise a secure Internet connection. If it starts with "https", this is a sign of a secure connection (e.g. https://domainname.de). Another indication is the symbol of a "locked padlock" in the status bar of your browser. Whether the address bar and status bar are shown on your screen will depend on your individual browser settings.

4. I have been asked if I want to display and transfer unsecure content
You are probably using an older version of your browser which does not recognise some of our security features. In order to avoid receiving this message again, you may choose to install the latest version of the browser. The latest versions and installation instructions, for instance for the Internet Explorer, are available free of charge from Microsoft at the following link:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/internet-explorer.aspx

5. What do I have to do if the connection to the internet service breaks down during registration?

After you have logged in and entered your shareholder ID number and your self-issued password, you will normally receive an e-mail with an activation code, which is valid for 96 hours. Your access will be activated after you have entered the code on the activation page. If you have not received an e-mail, you can re-enter your e-mail address at the end of the activation page and request a new activation code.

If the system connection is broken:
  1. Before confirmation of registration:
  2. It was not possible to successfully complete the new login, i.e. you must re-enter your shareholder ID number and individual access number on the login page and carry out all of the registration steps again.
  3. After confirmation of registration:
  4. To log in, you must now enter your shareholder ID number and your self-issued password on the login page. Your access will be activated after you have entered the activation code submitted to you by separate e-mail.

6. What do I have to do if I want to end my session?
You should always exit the internet service via the "Logout" menu item. If you do not log off in this way, there is the possibility that unauthorized persons will be able to look at or manipulate your data on your PC.

7. Why did I receive the notice "Time Out" although my log-in was just a few minutes ago?
The settings of your browser must be positioned to accept cookies as a prerequisite to use the AGM online service. Please check whether your browser is prepared for this. If this is not the case, please set it to accept cookies. Cookies used by the AGM online service become void or will be deleted automatically after the closing of the browser. If a cookie can not be placed, then the server is not able to identify whether the user is (still) properly registered or not. And then the user receives the notice "Time Out".

8. How do I create a screenshot in the event of error messages?
If you want to create a screenshot from an error message, you can do so in Windows using the "Print" key: Single-click the "Print" key to save the whole of the screen contents to the clipboard. Now open Microsoft Word or WordPad, for example, and press the key combination Ctrl+V for "Insert". You can now store the screenshot or print it out or send it by e-mail to the Shareholder Service at leoni.hv@linkmarketservices.de.
