e are very pleased about your interest in our website and our services. The protection of personal data is very important to us.
We have implemented technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of your personal data processed through our Internet pages. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.
With this data protection declaration, we inform you how and for what purpose we collect and process your data and which claims and rights you are entitled to according to the data protection regulations.

2. Scope of the processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we collect and process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services.
Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. Processing means any operation related to personal data, such as collection, recording, arrangement, storage, adaptation or alteration, as well as disclosure or any other kind of use.
The collection and processing of personal data of our users is carried out in accordance with the following provisions. Further details or additions to the purposes of data processing can be found in the respective contract documents, forms, a declaration of consent and/or other information provided to you.
3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
3.1 Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. You can revoke this at any time. You will be informed separately about the consequences of revoking or not granting consent in the corresponding text of the consent.
In principle, the revocation of consent is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected and remains lawful.
Consent: Consent is any expression of will made voluntarily by the data subject for the specific case in an informed manner and in an unambiguous manner in the form of a declaration or other unambiguous confirmatory act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
3.1.1 In particular, when you register for our newsletters, we will use your name and e-mail address to send you our personalized newsletters on a regular basis. To receive a newsletter, it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address. When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP), as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date and therefore serves our legal protection.
No other data is collected unless you provide it voluntarily.
Registration takes place with the help of the so-called "double opt-in" procedure. In this process, you will receive an e-mail with a link that you can use to confirm that you are the owner of the e-mail address and wish to be notified of our e-mail service. If your subscription is not confirmed after requesting the confirmation email, your provided personal data will not be processed, but will be automatically deactivated and deleted with the next data check (usually within one week).
After successful registration, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter by clicking on the link contained in each newsletter. The e-mail address together with the identifying information will be stored until you unsubscribe.
The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Section 7 (3) UWG.
3.1.2 For questions of any kind, we offer you the possibility to contact us via a contact form provided on the websites. In doing so, it is necessary to provide your name and a valid e-mail address so that we know from whom the inquiry originates and so that we can answer it. The temporary storage of the IP address when sending the form is required for the secure operation of the website and the underlying IT systems.
Additional information can be provided voluntarily.
Voluntary fields in the form are those fields that are not clearly marked as mandatory (red asterisk). We use the information of address, telephone or other personal data to contact you, also in case of any queries, to enter into a contract with you, to send you the ordered goods or to otherwise adequately respond to your request.
The data processing for the purpose of contacting us is based on your voluntarily given consent, which can be revoked at any time. The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
3.1.3 Registration/user account
You can set up a password-protected user account with us, in which we store your personal data. This serves the purpose of providing you with the greatest possible convenience in the processing of your orders through easier, faster and more personalized purchase processing and to manage your user profile. The creation of a user account is not required for the use of our site and for orders that you wish to place with us. We offer you the possibility to place your order as a guest. In this case, however, you will have to re-enter all of your data each time you place an order.
For your user account we need the following information from you:
• Salutation, first name, last name,
• payment data, if you do not pay by invoice, and
• a valid e-mail address.
In addition, you must provide a password of your choice to set up a user account. Together with your e-mail address, this allows you to access your user account. In your user account you can view and change the data stored about you at any time.
For faster clarification of any queries, you can also voluntarily provide your telephone or fax number. In addition, you can voluntarily enter your profession, company, department, country.
After deletion of your user account, your data will be automatically deleted for further use, unless we are obliged to store it for a longer period of time according to Article 6 para. 1 p. 1 c GDPR due to tax and commercial law retention and documentation obligations (from HGB, StGB or AO) or you have consented to the storage beyond this according to Article 6 para. 1 p. 1 a GDPR.
Those data that are absolutely necessary for delivery or order processing will be passed on to third party service providers. As soon as the storage of your data is no longer necessary or required by law, it will be deleted.
From participants in our sweepstakes, we require their personal data (name, address, e-mail address, telephone number). We store this personal data by name for the purpose of conducting and processing the sweepstakes in order to determine you as a possible winner or to inform you of a possible win and to be able to answer questions to and from participants and winners. In the event that you have won, we need your address in order to send you your prize.
In addition to the data collected via the entry forms, we store the time of entry as well as information about the browser used, the IP address assigned at the time of entry and the last website visited by the entrant. This information helps us in any troubleshooting that may be necessary and in answering questions from the contest participants. In addition, this enables us to identify participants who do not enter personally but via sweepstakes services.
With your participation you agree to receive e-mail messages (e.g. confirmation of participation, prize notification, etc.).
We will only pass on the winners' personal data that is required by us or our cooperation partners to hand over or claim the prize.
Subject to legal retention periods, your personal data will be deleted no later than 1 month after the end of the competition. Your personal data will also be deleted if you have revoked any consent you have given for processing, unless there are mandatory legal retention periods.
For more details on your rights, please refer to section 12.
Consent to use the photo
By participating in the competition, you give your consent for your photo to be published on our websites in the event that you win. You can revoke this consent at any time.
This publication is based on our legitimate interest as organizer to publish the winner of the sweepstakes, Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR.
3.2 When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para.1 b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, e.g. with interested parties.
In particular, the processing thus serves the provision of media services, events in presence or online form, purchases of products or services, consulting services and activities in the context of market research in accordance with your orders and wishes and include the services, measures and activities necessary for this.
The following personal data are collected and processed when orders are placed:
• Salutation, first name, last name
• payment data, if you do not pay by invoice, and
• a valid e-mail address
In addition, you can voluntarily provide further data. This data processing is based on our legitimate economic interest pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 f GDPR for the purpose of ensuring a smooth and easy processing of your order and the efficient handling of any queries.
• telephone number
• fax number and
• an alternative delivery address
Notices when using apps
At our events (trade fairs, congresses, seminars, workshops, etc.), we also collect data from participants on their company, professional position and industry as mandatory information as part of the registration process. On the one hand, this enables us to determine whether the participants have a professional connection to the respective event, and on the other hand, we use their personal data set to realize the "lead management" offers. In the area of "lead management", participants can have the barcode or QR code printed on their ticket "scanned" by exhibitors, for example, in order to give them access to their data for the purpose of a subsequent promotional approach by the exhibitor, if necessary, or to grant discounts and vouchers from exhibitors or sponsors.
We process the collected data according to Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR in order to fulfill the existing contract with a participant, usually for the purpose of attending the event. This also includes the associated customer service. In the context of lead management, the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR applies. By having the QR code scanned by the exhibitor or organizer, participants give their consent to data processing.
We also process and use the participant data, insofar as we are permitted to do so in accordance with the legal requirements, for the purpose of addressing them in advertising by post or e-mail. The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR in order to inform the participants about our events and related topics.
If participants have redeemed an entry code from an exhibitor for a ticket, we will pass on their personal data to the inviting exhibitor.
On our websites, interested parties and participants have the opportunity to order programs and catalogs for our events. To do this, we require the name, e-mail address and desired shipping address of the participant or exhibitor. Further information is voluntary.
The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR (legitimate interest of the responsible party). The data will only be processed to respond to the request and will be deleted after your request has been dealt with, unless legal or contractual .
Companies wishing to participate in our events as exhibitors must send us registration documents or fill out an online registration mask for this purpose. When you register, we collect all the data required to process the declaration of participation and for the preparation, implementation and handling of your participation.
We also process and use the data, insofar as we are permitted to do so by law, for the purpose of advertising by mail, e-mail and/or telephone.
We process the collected data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR for the purpose of contract performance, which concerns the participation of exhibitors at a trade fair. This also includes the associated customer service.
3.3 Should the processing of personal data be necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Primarily, these are legal requirements (e.g. commercial and tax laws) but also, if applicable, regulatory or other official requirements. The purposes of the processing may include identity and age verification, fraud and money laundering prevention, the prevention, combating and investigation of criminal offences endangering assets, the fulfillment of control and reporting obligations under tax law and the archiving of data for data protection and data security purposes as well as audits by tax and other authorities. In addition, the disclosure of personal data may become necessary in the context of official/court measures for the purposes of gathering evidence, criminal prosecution or enforcement of civil claims.
3.4 If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Article 6 (1) f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. According to Recital 47 of the GDPR, this is the case, for example, if there is a relevant and appropriate relationship between the data subject and the controller, e.g., if the data subject is a customer of the controller. But also for the following purposes:
• Ensuring a smooth connection of the web pages
• Ensuring a comfortable use of our websites
• evaluation of system security and stability
• for other administrative purposes,
• advertising or market and opinion research, insofar as you have not objected to the use of your data
• obtaining information and exchanging data with credit agencies, insofar as this exceeds our economic risk
• the testing and optimization of demand analysis procedures
• the further development of services and products as well as existing systems and processes
• statistical evaluations or market analysis
• the assertion of legal claims and defense in legal disputes that are not directly attributable to the contractual relationship
• the development of scoring systems or automated decision-making processes
building and facility security (e.g., through access controls and video surveillance), insofar as this goes beyond the general duties of care.
4. Provision of the websites and creation of log files

(4) The IP address of the user
(5) Date and time of access
(6) Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
(7) Web pages that are accessed by the user's system via our web pages
This data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the web pages. In addition, we use the data to optimize the websites and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, at the latest after 14 days.
The collection of data for the provision of the websites and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.
5. The categories of data we process, insofar as we do not receive data directly from you, and their origin
To the extent necessary for the provision of our services, we process personal data permissibly received from other companies or other third parties (e.g. credit agencies, address publishers).

We have integrated components of Twitter on this website in order to be able to integrate posts published on Twitter (so-called "tweets") into our reporting. Twitter is a multilingual publicly accessible microblogging service on which users can publish and distribute so-called tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 280 characters. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, including people who are not registered with Twitter. However, the tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow the tweets of a user. Furthermore, Twitter makes it possible to address a broad audience via hashtags, links or retweets. The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by us and on which a Twitter component has been integrated is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Twitter component to download a representation of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Twitter receives knowledge about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to disseminate the content of this website, to make this website known in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers. If the data subject is logged in to Twitter at the same time, Twitter recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned by Twitter to the respective Twitter account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information thus transmitted will be assigned to the personal Twitter user account of the data subject and stored and processed by Twitter. Twitter always receives information via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into Twitter at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Twitter component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Twitter, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Twitter account before accessing our website. The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter are available at https://twitter.com/de/privacy.
