The recorded data will not be pooled together with other data sources, in particular data which permits an association with a particular person.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” These cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.
If you do not wish that we recognize information about your computer, please configure your browser so that it deletes cookies from your computer’s hard drive, blocks all cookies, or warns you before a cookie is saved. However, in those cases, not all functions of this website may be available to you.
If you leave our website through a link and reach the site of a third party, it can happen that the addressee of the clicked-on target site sets cookies.

2.3 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address that is anonymized) will be, as a rule, transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States of America. Please be advised that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure anonymized collecting of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). Through the anonymization, Google shortens IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which is why no conclusions about your identity are possible. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States of America and shortened there. Google complies with the data protection policies of the “EU-US Privacy Shield” framework and is certified accordingly, so that an appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed. Google processes the collected information to analyze the use of our website, create reports for us on website activities and use, and to provide us with further services regarding website use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.
You may refuse the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
If you do not consent with the processing of data about you by using this website, then you can download a browser add-on from this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de (German language) or http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en (English language) that gives you the chance to configure Google Analytics such that no more information about the website visit will be sent to Google Analytics.
More information on Google data protection may be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de (German language) and https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en (English language).
2.4 WP Statistics
On our website, we use the WordPress analysis plug-in “WP Statistics” (https://wp-statistics.com). This analysis tool collects statistics on the general use of our website through anonymised data.
The legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our legitimate interest lies in optimising and commercially operating our website. No user profile is created and no cookies are set or needed. You can obtain more information by reading the data protection policy of WP Statistics:
Our website uses an embedded YouTube Player for the display and playback of videos. The operator of the video platform YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When you view a page on our website containing an embedded YouTube Player, a connection to the servers of YouTube/Google is established. In the process, your IP address along with the URL of the retrieved video is transmitted to the server. If you are logged into Google, YouTube/Google can assign this information to you and process it in your personal profile.
If you do not wish Google to collect data about you and link it to your personal profile, you must log out of Google before visiting our website. Further information about the collection and use of your data by YouTube can be found in YouTube’s data protection statement at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de (German language) and https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en (English language).
3. Use of Personal Data You Make Available to Us
Personal data such as your name, your address, telephone number, or electronic mail address are not collected unless you provide this data voluntarily.
We call your attention to the fact that transferring data in the Internet (for example, during communication by electronic mail) is subject to security breaches. It is not possible to completely protect such data against access by third parties.
However, TrendSet GmbH takes all necessary precautions — to the extent technically possible — to protect your data to protect it from misuse from outside. In the process, measures such as encryption, firewalls, hacker defence programs, and manual security precautions are used. For exhibitor administration and the shop, the user also needs a personal password.
3.1 Inquiries and Contracts
Insofar as you have made personal data available to us, we use these solely for the purpose of technically administering the website and fulfilling your wishes and requests, in particular for processing an order in the ticket shop or for answering your inquiry.
If you have made inquiries through our contact form, the information from the contact form, including the contact data you have entered into the form, will be saved by us to process your inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation (pre-contractual measures and performance of the contract).
Forwarding, selling, or otherwise transferring your personal data to third parties does not occur; excepting that:
- This is necessary to conclude the contract. Thus it can be necessary, for example, that for product orders, your address and order data are forwarded to our suppliers.
- This is necessary for billing purposes.
- You have previously consented to it.
The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation (performance of the contract) and Article 6 Section 1 Letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation (consent).
3.2 Registration as a Visitor
Users may register as visitors to a trade fair in order to gain access to the ticket shop and register additional persons for whom they wish to order tickets.
We send registered visitors information about visiting the trade fair by electronic mail and, for example, announce the start of ticket sales. These electronic mail messages do not contain any advertising. A registered visitor can deactivate the receipt of such information at any time.
The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation (fulfilment of contract).
3.3 Registration as an Exhibitor
Users may register themselves as exhibitors for a trade fair in order to exhibit at the fair and, as a result, to receive an entry in the trade fair catalogue. When the stand is approved, an empty entry is created in the trade fair catalogue on the online platform and initially filled with the exhibitor’s master data. The access data for the login area, with which the publicly available catalogue entry of the exhibitor can be maintained, will be sent to the exhibitor by post. After the exhibitor’s first access to his or her login area, the exhibitor is responsible for maintaining his or her entry.
Out of the login area, an exhibitor can also order technical services and marketing services for the trade fair along with vouchers for visiting the trade fair. The exhibitor can trace in his or her login area which voucher was redeemed by which visitor (company).
The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation (fulfilment of contract).
3.4 Other Advertising and Customer Relations Management
Without your permission, we use personal data only within the legally permitted scope; that means, for customer relations management and sending advertisements by mail. We do not use your electronic mail address, fax number, or telephone number for advertisements without your express consent. The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (protection of legitimate interests).
You can object to the use of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time and then will not receive further advertisements from us.

5. Duration of Storage
We delete your data if they are no longer needed after processing an inquiry or termination of the contract. Excluded from this are data which we are not yet allowed to delete due to legal obligation (e.g., documents which are to be retained according to tax law and commercial law) and data which we need to represent legitimate interests; in particular, for asserting claims or for direct marketing.
6. Your Rights
You have the following rights if the respective legal requirements are met:
- You have the right to receive information about the personal data saved about you. (Article 15 GDPR).
- You have the right to request the correction of incorrect information (Article 16 GDPR).
- You have the right to request the deletion (Article 17) or restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR) of data which is no longer required. Insofar as statutory retention obligations exist; e.g., for business correspondence under commercial law and tax law or another statutory exception, data will not be deleted, but only their processing will be restricted.
- You may at any time object to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes and, for special reasons, also to the further processing of your data (Article 21 GDPR).
- You have the right to data transferability (Article 20 GDPR); that is, the right to request the data you have provided us in a structured, current, and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to another person responsible without our interference; if necessary, you also have the right to request that we transmit the data directly to another person responsible if this is technically feasible.
Right of objection: In accordance with Article 21 Section 2 GDPR, you may object to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes at any time. The processing of your data will then be restricted to other purposes for which it is necessary, and will no longer be processed for direct marketing. Furthermore, you can also object to the additional processing of your data if there is a special reason.
To assert your rights, please contact the address stated under point 1.
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law, you can complain to a supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR).
