We use an algorithm for matchmaking, which matches your interests with the interests of other users and shows you the respective matches in order. Please note that we create profiles as part of the matchmaking process. These are based on information about your interests. We match your interests with the interests of other users. From this we create a descending list according to the interests that match yours. The more your selected interests match the interests of other users, the more likely these users will be suggested to you as possible contacts.

n) When we collect trade fair photos

We process trade fair photos (including, if applicable, other personal data that you provide to us in connection with the trade fair photos) to document our trade fairs.

In each case, your interest in confidentiality is subordinate. Otherwise, we will not be able to create and use trade fair photos.

(3) Recipient categories

The trade fair photos may be transmitted to journalists, media companies, press and photo agencies as well as platforms, also abroad, and published for the above-mentioned purposes of press and public relations work, editorial reporting as well as advertising and marketing purposes.

When purchasing a free ticket (e.g. by redeeming a voucher) and a paid ticket, data may be passed on to exhibitors.

Data (name, position, company, email address as well as other voluntary information from your participant profile, e.g. interests) will be passed on to the exhibitor. The data transfer to the respective company takes place when you visit the company profile (Brand Room) and/or attend a company session sponsored by the company. This takes place independently of the privacy settings that you set for your participation on the platform.

You also have the option of transmitting your electronic business card to third parties (exhibitors). You can do this either directly via the "Scan2Lead" function or via the GRIP Matchmaking app. The prerequisite for the "Scan2Lead" function is that your business card is available in the form of a QR code. The exhibitor can then read your business card and is comparable to handing over an analogue business card.

We use the “Google Maps” service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) on our website. We process your personal data in order to use Google Maps. Maps from this service are displayed on one or more sub-pages. When you call up such a sub-page, a connection is established from your device to a Google server in the USA.

We also use various video services on our website:

  • YouTube

This transmits to the YouTube server which of our web pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, such as clicking on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account as well as other user accounts of the companies YouTube LLC and Google before using our websites and deleting the corresponding cookies of the companies.

By using these services, we may also transfer personal data to service providers in third countries (see the section “Data transfer to third countries” below).

s) If you allow cookies and analytics tools in your browser

We use cookies and analytics tools to provide our website. Some providers we use also process your personal data outside the EU/EEA (see below the section “Data transfer to third countries”).

So-called "cookies" are used on our websites. Cookies are data records that are stored by a web server on the end device (e.g. computer, smartphone, tablet) of the user. When our website is called up again with the same end device, these are sent back either to our website ("first party cookie") or to another website to which the cookie belongs ("third party cookie").

Switching off the cookie function in your browser does not restrict the use of our website and the services offered.

The legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies/identifiers is our legitimate interest. The storage of information in your terminal equipment or the access to information already stored in your terminal equipment is absolutely necessary so that we can provide the telemedia service expressly requested by you as a user (section 25 para. 2 no. 2 of the German Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act [Telekommunikation-Telemedien-Datenschutz-Gesetz – TTDSG]).

Otherwise, the legal basis is generally your consent in each case, if no specific legal basis is mentioned below. You can revoke your consent at any time, e.g. by deleting cookies set via the browser settings of your end device. Please note that for technical reasons, this procedure only applies to the specific end device used.

You can revoke the corresponding consent at any time with effect for the future via the following website:

Here you can access your individual setting options.

You can also generally refuse the setting of a cookie - for example, via a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. For example, you can use the "Do not track" option ("DNT") of your Internet browser. Please note that for technical reasons, this procedure only applies to the specific end device used.

Conversion tracking using third-party providers

On this website, third-party tools are used for analysis purposes. These tools measure the effectiveness with which users are addressed by advertisements ("conversion tracking"). When you click on advertisements from a third-party provider mentioned below, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your device. If you now visit a certain website, the third-party provider and we can recognise that you have clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. This allows us to collect data that is relevant to our advertising efforts. We may learn the total number of users who clicked on an ad, the duration of the visit, the operating system, the device model, the location, payment transactions made and to what extent mobile apps were used.

You can find an overview of the third-party providers we work with in the context of conversion tracking here: Privacy/Privacy

t) When we process your health information

Due to official and legal measures, we are obligated to process health data about trade fair visitors, exhibitors and service providers in connection with the holding of a trade fair in order to comply with the infection protection measures in the current corona virus pandemic (e.g. on vaccination status, on whether a corona illness has been overcome, on a negative test result; so-called 3G: vaccinated, recovered, tested).

For this purpose, we process only those personal health data that are necessary and only for as long as they are necessary.

Legal basis

The processing of your personal data in this context is based on official and statutory measures.

The processing of your personal data in the context of such a sale is based on our overriding legitimate interest. For the processing of a corporate transaction, it may be necessary for us to transfer your respective personal data to a third party.

(2) Weighing of interests

Within the framework of the necessary balancing of interests, we have weighed up your interest in confidentiality and our interest in a corresponding sale. In each case, your confidentiality interest is subordinate. Otherwise, we would not be able to process such a sale.

v) When we make your personal data anonymous

We anonymise your personal data in order to evaluate them for statistical purposes.

(1) Legal basis

The processing of your personal data in the context of such anonymization is based on our overriding legitimate interest.

(2) Weighing of interests

Within the framework of the necessary balancing of interests, we have weighed up your interest in confidentiality and our interest in corresponding anonymisation. In each case, your interest in confidentiality is subordinate. Otherwise, we would not be able to achieve such anonymisation. The GDPR does not apply to anonymous data.

(3) Recipient categories

We use service providers for the anonymisation process. We transmit personal data to these service providers for this purpose. These service providers are contractually obligated by us to exercise the same care in the processing of personal data as we do ourselves.

3. How long do we store your personal data?

We delete your personal data when the respective purpose of the storage no longer applies and no statutory provision requires a retention (e.g. a retention obligation according to the German Tax Code and/or the German Commercial Code). If deletion is not possible in an individual case, processing will be restricted. Statistical evaluations are only carried out in anonymous form.

4. What are your data subject rights?

You have the right to request information about all personal data we process about you at any time.

b) Should your personal data be incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to have it corrected and completed.

c) You may at any time request the deletion of your personal data, unless we are legally obligated or entitled to continue processing your data.

d) If the legal requirements are met, you can demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

e) You have the right to object to processing insofar as the data processing is carried out for the purpose of direct marketing or profiling. If the processing is carried out on the basis of a balance of interests, you may object to the processing on grounds relating to your particular situation.

f) If the data processing is carried out on the basis of your consent or within the framework of a contract, you have a right to the transfer of the data provided by you, provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

g) If we process your data on the basis of a declaration of consent, you have the right to revoke this consent in whole or, if applicable, in part at any time with effect for the future. The processing carried out before a revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

h) You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority at any time if you believe that data processing has been carried out in breach of applicable law.

5. In what context do we create automatic profiles?

We do not create automatic profiles, outside of matchmaking as part of networking.

6. Data transfer to third countries

In some cases, personal data will be transferred to exhibitors and service providers in third countries (see the relevant note within our data protection information). Third countries are countries outside the EU and outside the EEA. These third countries also include the USA.

In the USA there is no comparable level of data protection as in Europe. In particular, it is possible that government agencies access personal data without us or you knowing about it. Legal prosecution may not be successful.

The legal basis for such data transfer is generally your consent (Art. 49 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR) or a respective contract performance (Art. 49 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR).

7. Data security

We take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect the personal data we process against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against unauthorised access.
