The Internet portal of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH is primarily a marketplace for the processing of business transactions. Although a great deal of information is also available to anonymous visitors, there is sometimes a need for us to obtain data from you which can be company or even person-related in order to provide you with the desired services. Our systems protect your data in accordance with internationally applicable data protection standards,the European General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU)2016/679, GDPR) and national data protection regulations. Our goal is to make it possible for you to be certain of responsible and confidential treatment of your data. Encoding procedures are used for the secure transmission of payment data. This means that communication between your browser and our system cannot be read by other participants in the Internet. Personal data is used exclusively for the purposes explicitly stated in these data protection regulations or during later data collection. Our websites may contain links to websites of other providers. As we are not responsible for their information, we recommend that you study the information provided on such sites concerning data protection carefully. Each time content is requested from our Internet site, data (e.g. name of the file requested, date/time, data volume transferred) on this process is stored in a protocol file. In this way, we monitor user conduct throughout the entire website. Nevertheless, the bringing together of this information with data on individual users is only carried out with prior, written consent. Messe Düsseldorf GmbH classifies the entire use statistics on the basis of the user?s domain name, the browser type and the MIME type by reading out this information from the browser string (the information contained in the browser of every user). We monitor and list the search terms entered in the search engine by users; nevertheless, this tracing is never carried out in connection with individual users.
Video surveillance takes place on the trade fair premises of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. The video surveillance serves the purpose of observing the rights of domestic authority, in order to prevent crime as well as to conserve evidence in case a crime has occurred. Video surveillance moreover takes places for logistical purposes of traffic routing, traffic congestion prevention, coordination of transport of persons by bus and for purposes of truck guidance. The legal basis for said video surveillance is Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f. of the European General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679, GDPR), whereas the legitimate interests pursued by Messe Düsseldorf GmbH arise from the aforementioned purposes. If and as far as video footage is recorded, it is deleted upon lapse of 48 hours, unless a longer lasting storage is necessary to observe the aforementioned legitimate interests. If the latter is the case, a deletion will take place upon shortfall of the purpose of processing.

The purpose of the Messe Düsseldorf GmbH company is the promotion of economic activity through the organisation of trade fairs and exhibitions at home and abroad, through the organisation or implementation of congresses and conferences, and through all activities related to the trade fair, exhibition, congress and conference business。 Our work focuses particularly on the organization of industry sector specific events addressing narrowly defineable target groups to be identified on the basis of their respective professional fields of activity。 For the fulfilment of this purpose, we maintain trade fair and exhibition centres as well as congress and conference facilities which we use for events or rent out in return for appropriate payment。 To this end we process personal data particularly of exhibitors, Professional exhibition visitors, exhibition visitors, journalists, service providers, suppliers, cooperation partners (respectively of the employees, legal representatives, or other agents) as well as of persons with a close relationship to our company due to personal ties。 Any data processing is either based on the data subjects consent (particularly in case of electronic direct marketing measures or with the use of photos and video footage for advertising purposes) or on another legal permission as stipulated in Article 6 of the European General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679, GDPR) and serves the express purposes of the company, in particular the implementation of our events offered, the handling of any relevant business processes and for assuring and improving the quality of our trade fair events such as for purposes of providing our customers (see below cipher 3。5, category A, B, F) with information prior to and after a certain event about the very event and about follow-up events。 In doing so we pursue the legitimate interest to make our professional exhibitions accessible exclusively to professional exhibition visitors with a professional relation to the subject of the respective event。 This shall serve the purpose to enhance the quality of the professional discussion among attendants。 Follow-up events may include other subject-related events organized or implemented by Messe Düsseldorf GmbH within Germany or abroad。 Members of trade fair clubs will also receive promotional information on offers corresponding to their stated interests from Messe Düsseldorf。 Your personal data will not be transmitted to any third parties for advertising purposes, unless such data disclosure is part of a contractual service provided by Messe Düsseldorf GmbH (as e。g。 in the scope of the admission ticket barcode scanning service, see below cipher 3。6, bullet 8)。 When you present your visitor's badge the data stored on this badge may thus be retrieved and therefore also stored and used by third parties。 In such cases the data protection terms of the third party shall apply in the third partys own responsibility as data controller。
For the fulfilment of the purposes stated under 3.4, the following person-related data is collected, processed and used for each group of persons:

In all cases, the forwarding of data is for fulfilment of the purposes stated under 3。4。
As a basic principle any personal data will be erased as soon as it is no longer needed to serve the purposes it has been collected or otherwise processed for. A deletion will moreover be carried out in cases such deletion is required by law and in cases, in which the data subject has revoked its consent to the processing of its personal data or has objected to such processing. This does not apply, if and as far as despite of any revocation or objection yet another legal basis or other overriding grounds are on hand authorizing Messe Düsseldorf GmbH not to erase said personal data. This may for example be the case, in cases in which legal periods of time for safeguarding apply (such as applicable for business correspondence and booking documents).
To enable optimum servicing of our customers and business partners on a worldwide basis, we forward your data to companies within the Messe Düsseldorf Group。 The fulfilment of contractual purposes or the performance of pre-contractual measures with potential exhibitors/exhibitors as well as with potential visitors or visiting companies from third countries fundamentally necessitates the forwarding of data to the international representation office of the corresponding third country。 To this end, the corresponding data as set out under 3。5 is forwarded to the responsible international representation office In the case of representatives of companies from third countries who visit a trade exhibition, the name of the visitor can also be forwarded to the responsible international representation office, provided no objection has been received concerning the forwarding。 The registration data of a company whose representative visits an exhibitor at his stand will be forwarded to the exhibitor visited - if the visitor does not object to the scanning of his data on the barcode of his entrance ticket - irrespective of whether the exhibitor is from Germany, the EU or another third country。 In all cases in which we ourselves arrange the transmission of person-related data to third countries which do not have a sufficient level of data protection regulations, the data is only forwarded if the recipient gives a contractual undertaking to adhere to equal standards of data protection and data security as we ourselves。
