Messe München thanks you for visiting our Web site and for your interest in our company and our products. We take the protection of your private data seriously and we would like you to feel comfortable when visiting our Internet pages. The protection of your privacy is of the greatest importance to us. It therefore goes without saying that we comply with statutory provisions for data protection. Our staff are obligated to maintain secrecy with regard to data and they receive regular training in the areas of data protection and data security. In the following, we would like to give you a brief description of how we protect your data and what it means for you when you make use of our online offers.

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 user tool (web browser, operating system) you use to access us

Personal data

Personal data is information which is used explicitly to determine your identity. It includes information such as your name and your postal or e-mail address. Personal data is saved by us in addition to access data only when you indicate it to us voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, a survey, a prize competition, a contact inquiry, an application for a newsletter or for the carrying out of an online order. Moreover, personal data is used only to the extent necessary and only for the purpose consented to by you and for a legally permissible purpose. For the secure transmission of your data, Messe München GmbH employs encryption procedures in secure areas. This means that communications between your browser and our order system, for instance, cannot be read by others in the Internet. All data is stored only on specially protected servers of Messe München GmbH in Germany. Incidentally, using our order system is regarded as consenting to the storage and use of your data by Messe München GmbH and its partners.

Passing on personal data to third parties

Messe München GmbH renders some of its services together with selected partners too. These are subject to the same strict statutory provisions for data protection and are also integrated into the data protection concept of Messe München GmbH. Personal data is only passed on

  • in order data processing such as for online orders
  • in the particular case when you have given your prior consent

Further information - such as statements made voluntarily about main areas of interest - is not passed on to third parties by Messe München GmbH. Personal data is conveyed to state institutions and authorities only within the scope of statutory or judicial obligations.

Power of revocation

If you demand in writing that Messe München GmbH or the representative responsible for you should amend, cease from using or delete your personal data, we shall of course carry this out immediately. If you are registered as a user, we also offer you the possibility of seeing the data for yourself and of deleting or altering it if need be.
