2. Visiting the website

You can visit the homepage without having to register or leave personal data.

2.1 Log files

With every access of a user on the website and with each access of a file, data concerning these events are automatically collected and stored in a log file. In detail, the following data are stored about each access:

  • Name of the accessed file.
  • Date and time of the access.
  • Amount of data transferred.
  • Notification of whether the access was successful.
  • Description of the type of web browser used.
  • Requested domain.
  • IP address of the requesting system. (Because of legal regulations, IP addresses are stored in an anonymised format. The last part of the IP address is exchanged.)

The recorded data will not be pooled together with other data sources, in particular data which permits an association with a particular person.

The legal basis for collecting this data is Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (our overriding legitimate interest). We cannot offer you an opportunity to object to this collection, as the server protocol is essential to ensure the availability of this website and in the event of attacks on the website. The data from the server log is automatically deleted after seven days.

2.2 WP Statistics

We use the WordPress Analysis plugin “WP Statistics” ( on our website. The analysis tool creates statistics on the general use of our website using anonymous data. The log files and actions that website visitors have taken on the site (e.g. clicks and views) are also recorded. We use WP Statistics with an anonymised IP address. Your IP address will be shortened so that it can no longer be assigned to you personally. We store data collected with WP Statistics on our web server.

The legal basis for our use of this plugin is Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimisation through the anonymous evaluation of user behaviour and the economic operation of our website. No user profiles are created and no cookies are set or required. Further information can be found in the data privacy declarations of WP Statistics:

This website uses cookies. We use cookies to personalise content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners who may combine it with other information that you’ve provided to them or that they’ve collected from your use of their services.

Cookies are small text files that can be used by websites to make a user’s experience more efficient.

The law states that we can store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other types of cookies we need your permission.

This site uses different types of cookies. Some cookies are placed by third party services that appear on our pages.

You can at any time change or withdraw your consent from the Cookie Declaration on our website.

The legal basis is Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the GDPR.

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. We are not legally responsible for these cookies.

2.3.1 First party cookies (consent free cookies)

Consent free cookies ensure functions without which you could not use this website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by us and are therefore so-called first party cookies. Unconditionally required cookies cannot be deactivated via the function of this page. You can generally deactivate cookies at any time in your browser.

2.3.2 Third party cookies (cookies requiring consent)

In addition to consent free cookies, we also use cookies from third parties. Without these consenting cookies, certain features on this website, such as viewing Google Maps, are not available. These third parties may set cookies while you are visiting our website. Please visit the third-party websites for more information about their use of cookies.

If you choose not to give or withdraw your consent to the use of cookies that require your consent, you will only be provided with those features of our website that we can guarantee to use without these cookies.

We use cookies to personalize content and ads, provide social media features, and analyze traffic to our website. We also share information about your use of our website with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. Our partners may combine this information with other data that you have provided to them or that they have collected as part of your use of the Services. If you consent to cookies that are not necessary, cookies will be set that will transfer some of your data to the United States. This is a transfer to a third country, where no equivalent data protection as in the EU is guaranteed. With your consent to these cookies, you expressly agree to the processing of your data in the USA. You can find more information in our privacy policy.

2.3.3 YouTube
Videos from the external video platform YouTube are integrated into our website. By default, only deactivated images from the YouTube channel are embedded which do not automatically connect to the YouTube servers. This means that the operator does not receive any data from the user when the website is accessed.

You can decide for yourself whether the YouTube videos should be activated. By clicking on the play button, you consent to YouTube setting cookies on the end device you are using, which can also serve to analyse user behaviour for the purposes of market research and marketing. 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.

In order to save your desired setting, we set a cookie that saves the parameters. However, when setting this cookie, we do not store any personal data; the cookies only contain anonymised data to adapt the browser. The videos are then active and can be played by the user. If you would like to deactivate the automatic loading of YouTube videos again, you can remove the check/tick for consent under the data protection symbol. This also updates the cookie settings.

YouTube is an offer from YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA. Further information on the purpose and scope of data processing (including outside of the European Union and outside the USA) and information about setting options to protect your privacy can be found in the data privacy statement at (English language). Google processes your personal data in the USA, among other places, and has therefore submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield.

2.3.4 Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API, a mapping service of Google Ireland Limited (Google), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, to display an interactive map and to create directions. When you use Google Maps, information about your use of this website and data about the use of the Maps functions are collected, processed, and used by Google.

To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary that your IP address be saved. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We ourselves have no influence on this data transmission. If Google Maps is activated, Google may use Google Web Fonts for the purpose of the uniform display of fonts. When accessing Google Maps, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

The use of Google Maps is based on your corresponding consent, Article 6 Section 1 Letter a of the GDPR and Article 25 Section 1 of the TTDSG (Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act), insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.

Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: and

Further information about data processing by Google can be found in Google’s privacy policy (

2.4 Auxiliary programs, active contents

Java Applets, Active-X-Controls and Java-Script are used to provide this Internet offer. If, for security reasons, you do not wish to use these auxiliary programs or active contents, you should deactivate the corresponding setting in your browser. Please note that after deactivation, not all functions offered by us on this website may work.

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 to the trade fair

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 necessary information about visiting the trade fair by electronic mail and, for example, notify visitors of the start of ticket sales if these sales had not yet started at the time of registration. 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 Payment services provider

We integrate payment services from third-party companies on our website to process ticket purchases. Through the payment process as part of the purchase, your payment data (e.g. name, amount, account details, credit card number) will be processed by the respective payment service provider for the purpose of payment processing. The respective contract and data protection provisions of the respective provider apply to these transactions. The legal basis for using the payment service provider is Article 6 Section 1 Letter b of the GDPR (contract processing) and our interest in a payment process that is as smooth and secure as possible (Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the GDPR). If your consent is requested for certain actions, Article 6 Section 1 Letter a of the GDPR is the legal basis for data processing; consent can be revoked at any time with effect from that day forward.

The privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies to the payment process. We offer the following payment methods for processing your ticket purchase:

Payment services provider Payment method Remarks on data privacy
Lyoner Straße 9
60528 Frankfurt/Main
All offered methods of payment PayOne data protection policy for end customers

Portal for data privacy inquiries to PayOne

Depending on the selection of the payment method/payment service provider, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies to the payment process.

In the course of the payment process, we ourselves receive the personal data that you provided for the creation of the invoice. This data is stored by us for ten years owing to tax law retention obligations.

3.5 Customer Relations Management

We use your personal data to inform you of future trade fairs; for example, by electronic mail or by post. For this purpose, we use your personal data on the basis of your consent given to us (Article 6 Section 1 Letter a of the GDPR) or on the basis of Article 7 Section 3 of the UWG (Unfair Competition Act), insofar as we have received your electronic mail address as part of the conclusion of the contract. We send information on future trade fairs by post on the basis of our legitimate interest in carrying out direct marketing measures pursuant to Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the GDPR.

Of course, you may object at any time to receiving this information or revoke the consent given to us at any time with effect from that day forward. In these cases, you will then no longer receive corresponding information from us.

So that we can implement your objection or implement the revocation of the consent granted to us, please contact us at the contact details mentioned in Section 1 or make your objection or revocation in our customer portal under “Manage people”.

4. Use of data by third parties

5. Duration of storage

We delete your data if they are no longer required after processing an inquiry or ending the contract. Excluded from this are data that we have to store for a certain period of time due to legal obligations (e.g. documents that have to be kept under tax law and commercial law) and data that we need to protect legitimate interests, in particular to assert and defend against claims or also for marketing purposes, unless this data was previously deleted or blocked due to a corresponding revocation of your consent or due to your objection.

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 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:
To the extent that your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Article 21 GDPR, provided that there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which we will implement without specifying a particular situation.

To assert your rights, please contact the address stated under point 1.
