Data protection notes

Basic Principles
Messe München GmbH (“Messe München”) thanks you for your interest in our company and products. We take the protection of your person-related data very seriously.

Protecting your privacy is of optimum importance to us. Therefore, compliance with legislation on protecting data privacy is self-evident for us. Our employees are obligated to maintain data secrecy. They are regularly trained in the areas of data protection and data security.

2. What are personal data? How do we protect personal data?

a. Personal data

Personal data refer to individual information about the personal or material relations of a certain or identifiable natural person This includes information such as your name, postal or email address, and access data in the context of using our website and our other digital content and products. Personal data are also stored by us in addition to the access data only if you voluntarily provide us with this, e.g., in the context of a registration, a survey, a prize contest, a contact request, a subscription to a newsletter or to carry out an online order. In addition, personal data are only used to the extent necessary and for the sole consented purpose or a legally permissible purpose. For secure transmission of your data, Messe München GmbH uses encryption procedures in secured areas. This means that the communication between your browser or terminal device and our ordering system is not readable for others on the internet, for example. Apart from that, the use of our ordering system is deemed as consent to the storage and use of your data by Messe München GmbH and its partners. In the context of trade fair photos, we generate and collect image material from you and other personal data that you provide us in connection with the photos (for example, name, telephone number, e-mail address, postal address).


b. Access data

By accessing our website, Messe München GmbH receives access data that is stored for security purposes and in principle permits identification of:


3. What do we do with your personal data?

a. If you use our website or our contact form

(1) Provision of our website

The provision of this website requires the handling of personal data, for example, the IP address for the retrieval of the content displayed on this website.

These data are evaluated by Messe München GmbH and enable us to optimize our offers as a whole and make the content more specific for you personally, e.g., to recognize you as a returning visitor to our website. If you have an existing data record, the new data can be assigned to it in many cases. The IP address of the computer from which the access is made is only stored for backup purposes for a period of one month.

JavaScript, ActiveX, or other controls and scripting languages in web pages that contain executables can be disabled for security reasons at any time via your browser. Our website remains navigable without JavaScript.

You also have the opportunity to contact us via our contact form. We collect the personal data for this that you enter in the contact form.


(2) Legal basis

The handling of your personal data for the provision of this website and for communication via this website is based on our legitimate interest. For the provision of this website, it is technically necessary that we process certain personal data (e.g., the IP address). For your communication with us, we must handle the respective personal data.


(3) Balancing of interests

As part of the required balancing of interests, we balance your interest in the confidentiality of your personal information and our interests in the provision of this website in establishing contact with each other. Your interest in confidentiality is secondary in both cases. Otherwise, we could not provide you with access to this website or respond to your contact request.


(4) Recipient categories

We use service providers to provide our website. We transmit personal data to these service providers for this. These service providers are contractually obligated by us to exercise the same care when handling personal data as we do ourselves.

These service providers are subject to the same strict data protection regulations and are also included in the data protection concept of Messe München GmbH.

Personal data are only transmitted to state institutions and authorities in the context of legal or judicial obligations.


b. When you buy online tickets from us or register online with us as a visitor, trade visitor or exhibitor


(1) Online tickets and legal basis

You can buy online tickets for trade fairs and congresses via our website. We process the personal data for this that you enter in the order form. The processing of your personal data takes place for preparing, executing and processing the corresponding contract.

In this context, Messe München only processes personal data for the purpose of Messe München's business purposes. This is necessary for carrying out the tasks of the exhibition and exhibition industry in economic, scientific and cultural fields. The tasks include in particular the holding of trade fairs, exhibitions, congresses and similar events, taking care of the exhibition interests of the City of Munich and the Free State of Bavaria at home and abroad, the promotion of the economy by organizing trade fairs, exhibitions, congresses and similar events as well as the operation, maintenance and further development of the exhibition center in Munich, Messestadt-Riem.

To this end, Messe München maintains exhibition and exhibition facilities, congress and meeting rooms, which it uses or rents for events. The Messe München also operates this for certain events and special internet offers.

The processing of personal data is carried out in particular for the handling of business processes in connection with the above activities, for your information and for promoting our events and services (based on Section 7 para. 3 of the Law on Unfair Competition [UWG]), for their optimization as well as market and opinion research. You can object to the sending of electronic mail by sending an email to the following address:

datenschutz@messe-muenchen.de


(2) Registration as an exhibitor or visitor and legal basis

You can register as a visitor, trade visitor or exhibitor on our website. For this purpose, we process the personal data that you provide to us as part of your registration.

The processing of your personal data takes place for preparing, executing and processing the corresponding usage contract (license agreement).

You do not have to register to participate in events of Messe München and its subsidiaries. Of course, you can also buy an anonymous ticket at the ticket counters without registering. Our hosts and hostesses as well as our service center and the exhibition project management will support you in doing this.

Without registration, we are unfortunately unable to provide you with services such as online advance sale or simplified repeated ticket purchase, match-making, networking functions in the context of our Connect app, travel services or other services of Messe München.

This does not apply for you as a visitor in the following cases:

In particular, we process your personal data for the following purposes:

Data collected later is also assigned to the customer account. For example, these include the data collected data when you order tickets, the number of a voucher of an exhibitor inviting you, and email addresses of other persons for whom you also order tickets at the same time as you order,

You may have multiple customer accounts if you registered with us using different email addresses.


(3) Recipient categories

We only forward the data to third parties to the extent described below. Some of the recipients are located outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Please also note the following section in this context.


(4) Special data protection notes

The transmission of data to the extent described above may be made to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) in some cases. Some of these countries do not have a level of data protection comparable to the level of protection within the EU (e.g., USA, China or India). To protect your data, our non-EEA Group companies and contractors, to which data are to be transmitted, for example, foreign representatives, are required to provide appropriate data protection in accordance with EU standard contractual clauses for the transmission of personal data to third countries.

You can find the EU standard contract clauses at the following link:

You can also find information on international data protection at the following link:

https://www.lda.bayern.de/en/international.html


c. If you use our Connect app

In the context of the app that we provide for specific trade fair events ("Connect app"), you will be given access to the public information we are providing about the respective trade-fair event and—if you have acquired this option—also access to the networking functions of the Connect app.

Recipient categories

We only forward the data to third parties to the extent described below. Some of the recipients are located outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Please also note the following section in this context.


d. If you use our bauma App

(1) Device information and events

We process device data to send you push messages, synchronize your favorites, and for so-called crash-reporting to detect the error in the event of an app crash. This includes the following information: the device ID, the device model, name of the device, the operating system, time stamp, and the cause of the error. Processing of the data in the context of favorite synchronization and the sending of push messages is required to fulfill the contract with you. The legal basis for the processing of this data is therefore Section 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The data is required as part of the crash report to analyze and fix errors or crashes of the app. This purpose constitutes our legitimate interest in the processing of data, which is thus in compliance with Section. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. In the case of push messages, the data is deleted as soon as the request has been processed. You can turn off the push notification service and thus object to the processing of your data. Unless you use favorites synchronization, no data will be collected. For more information on favorites synchronization, see section h. For crash reporting, the data is absolutely necessary, you cannot object to the processing. In case you do not agree, we ask you to uninstall the app. The crash data will be deleted when it is no longer needed for analysis and troubleshooting.


(2) Location data

We require access to the location of your device for location-based services. This service is intended to provide you with helpful information in the context of the event concerned, depending on your location. Your location data is determined using GPS data, nearby Wi-Fi networks SSID, mobile data and Bluetooth, and is used only to perform relevant technical functions. Your location data will not be used to create movement profiles beyond your current location and will not be logged or stored by us. You may revoke access in your operating system settings at any time. Please note that some functions may not be available if you do not allow access.


(3) Calendar access

To enable you to save the dates of your trade fair visit planning in your device calendar, we need access to your calendar. We will not retrieve or store any personal data from your calendar. You can revoke access in your operating system settings at any time. Please note that some functions may not be available if you do not grant access.


(4) Address book access

We need access to your address book to enable you to save the contacts provided through the exhibitor directory. We will not retrieve or store any personal data from your address book. You can revoke access in your operating system settings at any time. Please note that some functions may not be available if you do not allow access.


(5) Camera access

We require access to your device camera to produce camera memos. The data will be stored on your device. You can revoke access in your operating system settings at any time. Please note that some functions may not be available if you do not grant access.


(6) Memory access

We need memory access to store the trade show visit data you have created on your device. You can revoke access in your operating system settings at any time. Please note that some functions may not be available if you do not allow access.


(7) Google Analytics

This app uses Google Analytics, an analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). With the help of Google Analytics, we collect data on how and which functions were used within the apps. These include e.g. search queries, clicks on banners and which product groups and exhibitor entries in the app are called up in which frequency. The information collected about your use of this app is usually transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization, that is, within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area, user IP addresses will be truncated. This deletion of digits eliminates any personal reference to your IP address. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the U.S. and truncated there. Under the terms of the agreement on order data processing, which the operator of the app has entered into with Google Inc., Google will use the information collected to evaluate your use of the bauma app, to compile reports on the app activities, and to provide us with other services related with the use of the app. Google may also transmit this information to third parties if required by law or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. The transmitted IP address of the user will not be merged with other Google data. The processing of personal data enables us to analyze the behavior of users of our app. The objective of evaluating this data is to continuously optimize our app, its content and user-friendliness. These purposes constitute our legitimate interest in the processing of data and the processing is thus in compliance with the requirements pursuant to Section 6 para. 1 lit. of the GDPR. All personal data will be deleted after 26 months. You can prevent the collection and processing by Google of your data related to your use of the app by turning off the feature in the app settings. For more information about the terms of service and privacy policy of Google Analytics, please visit: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html.


(8) Other

In addition to the above access requests, we process personal data only in the context of the use of individual functions of the app. Unless you use these functions, we will not collect any other personal information. In order to enable a synchronization of the favorites created in the app with the watch lists in the online exhibitor catalog on exhibitors.bauma.de, we transmit—in addition to the favorites—also an e-mail address as an identifying feature for your online exhibitor catalog user account during synchronization. You must enter the e-mail address in the app yourself before the first sync. The e-mail address gets stored in the app to simplify subsequent synchronization processes. Synchronization will only occur if you press the "Synchronize Favorites" button in the app. Pursuant to Section 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, processing of your personal data serves the purpose of improving usability. The data for favorites synchronization is used only to process the request and will subsequently be deleted.


e. If you use our Instagram channel

We have several community features on our Instagram channel that allow you to interact with other users.

Please note that these areas are publicly accessible and any personal information that you post or provide upon registration may be viewed by others.

We collect all data entered on this community channel in order to be able to provide you with the community features as intended.

The processing of this data is based on statutory provisions that allow us to process personal data to the extent necessary for the use of a service or the performance of a contract (§ 15 para 1 German Telemedia Act, Sect. 6 para b GDPR), or because we have an overriding legitimate interest in making the use of the offer as easy and efficient as possible (Section 6 (1) (f) GDPR).

The processing of this data is based on statutory provisions that allow the processing of data because it is required to perform the registration process and your participation in the respective event (Section 6 para. 1 b GDPR) or we have a legitimate interest in preventing fraud and, if necessary, taking effective legal action (Section 6 para 1 lit. f.
