Data protection policy

Principles
Messe München GmbH (Munich International Trade Fairs) thanks you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company and our products. We take the protection of your private data seriously and we want you to feel comfortable when visiting our Internet pages. The protection of your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. Therefore it goes without saying that we comply with statutory provisions for data protection. Our employees are obligated to treat all information confidentially and they receive regular training in the areas of data protection and data security. In the sections below, we would like to briefly explain how we protect your data and what it means for you when you make use of our online offers.

Access data
When our Internet pages are called up, Messe München GmbH receives access data which is stored for protective purposes that basically allows us to identify you. This data includes

  • the name of your Internet service provider
  • the country you come from
  • the website you come from to visit us
  • the search term you use, if you come to our site via a search engine
  • the websites of ours that you visit
  • the user tool (web browser, operating system) you use to access us
  • files that you download from our site (e.g. PDF or Word documents);
  • the duration of your visit
  • the date and the time of your visit

This will enable us to optimise our offerings as a whole and personalise the content specifically for you, e.g. recognise you as a return visitor to our Internet offering. If you have an existing data set, the new Data can be allocated to this data set in many cases.

Personal data 
Personal data is information that is used explicitly to determine your identity. It includes information such as your name and your postal or e-mail address. The only time we save personal data in addition to your access data is if you give us this information voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, a survey, a prize competition, a contact inquiry, an application for a newsletter or to process an online order. Moreover, personal data is used only to the extent necessary and only for the legally permissible purpose for which you gave your consent. To ensure the secure transmission of your data, Messe München GmbH employs encryption procedures in secure areas. This means that communication between your browser and our order system, for instance, cannot be read by others on the Internet. Incidentally, using our order system is regarded as consenting to the storage and use of your data by Messe München and its partners.

Passing on personal data to third parties
Messe München GmbH renders some of its services together with select partners. These partners are subject to the same strict statutory provisions for data protection as and are integrated into the data-protection concept of Messe München. Personal data is only passed on

  • when processing order-related data, such as for online orders
  • in exceptional cases, provided you have given your prior consent

Additional information - such as voluntary statements about your primary areas of interest - is not passed on to third parties by Messe München. Personal data is conveyed to state institutions and authorities only within the scope of statutory or judicial obligations.

Power of revocation 
If you request in writing that Messe München GmbH or the representative responsible for you correct, cease from using or delete your personal data, we shall of course do so immediately. If you are registered as a user, we also offer you the opportunity to view the data for yourself and delete or change it if necessary.
