Data collection and processing

Exhibitors

Booking of exhibition space including exhibitor manual

The data you send us to be able to take advantage of our offer/services will be processed by us for the purposes of contract processing and is necessary in this respect. It is not possible to conclude or process a contract unless you provide your data. During the implementation of the contract, we give your data to contracted service providers if this is necessary to fulfil the contract.

The exhibitor needs to open a customer account to book an exhibition space and other services via the exhibitor manual. On this basis, spring offers its customers various services to make event attendance as interesting and enjoyable as possible. Customers therefore use the services offered by spring in the form of a comprehensive package.

The personal data collected when booking exhibitor services is only processed by spring for the purposes of contractual performance, billing and customer administration.

The data from the booking of exhibitor services is also used for any necessary handling of warranty claims or other complaints. This data can also be passed on to external auditors or tax offices for auditing purposes. The data is stored in accordance with statutory storage obligations according to sections 146 ff Tax Code (AO) or section 257 German Commercial Code (HGB) and is erased on expiry of the storage obligation period.

The mandatory data required on opening a customer account (name and address, company, contact person, exhibition and exhibition stand) is passed on as required to contracted service providers of spring Messe Management GmbH offering relevant additional services for the exhibition stand booked by you.

Legal bases:

  • for opening and making available user accounts: art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR
  • for the purposes of contract performance including processing of complaints / warranty: art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR
  • for passing on data to service partners contracted by spring Messe Management GmbH for the provision of their services: Art. 6 (1) (b) or art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR
  • for the storage of data in accordance with the Tax Code (AO) / German Commercial Code (HGB) and any inspections by the tax office / auditors: Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR

Visitors

When registering trade visitor passes / exhibitor passes (hereinafter 

referred to jointly as “trade visitor passes”):

You can obtain event passes (passes for exhibitions, congresses) via visitor registration or XING-Events. spring processes the mandatory data you provide together with the data for the specifically selected event for the purchase of the pass, and to give you access to the event on the scheduled day(s). This data is also used to produce corresponding name badges for a visit to the exhibition / attendance at the congress.

If trade visitors are invited directly by the exhibitor, the latter can view the data via the ticket registration for a limited period (master data, attendances).

This data obtained for the purchase of the pass is used for billing purposes and, if applicable, also for the processing of warranty claims or other complaints. This data may also be passed on to external auditors or tax offices for auditing purposes. The data relating to the purchase of passes is stored in accordance with statutory storage obligations according to sections 146 ff Tax Code (AO) or section 257 German Commercial Code (HGB) and is erased on expiry of the storage obligation period.

Legal bases:

  • for the purposes of contract performance including processing of complaints / warranty: art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR
  • for the storage of data in accordance with the Tax Code (AO) / German Commercial Code (HGB) and any inspections by the tax office / auditors: Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR
  • for opening and making available user accounts: art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR
  • for the sending of master data to the inviting exhibitor: Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR

Other exhibition services:

When purchasing online passes or registering passes for trade visitors, speakers, exhibitors or press representatives, exhibition visitors are given the chance to access other exhibition services offered by spring as part of a service package. This includes the following services:

Lead management

Favourites list search & routing

SurveyMonkey

 

The following data processing takes place in the individual processes:

Lead management

spring makes it possible for trade visitors to conveniently transfer their data from the ticket registration to an exhibitor or other company / organisation / persons taking part in the event (e.g. congress or forum participants, speakers, sponsors etc., hereinafter referred to as “event participant”) if the exhibition visitor so desires on a case by case basis. For this purpose, the event participant simply scans a barcode from the ticket and then calls up the data stored by spring.

Favourites search & routing

A user of the website or the app can store exhibitors, products and events in a favourites list. This favourites list is used to generate an optimal route for the user, which he can process, and store in his user account. If you have installed the exhibition app – and have consented to the use of your location – the app can show your specific route and your location.

SurveyMonkey

We use SurveyMonkey to ask for your opinion with a view to making the event more successful for visitors and exhibitors and to introduce continuous improvements. This ensures that services can be provided in the future to suit your interests.

Legal bases:

for the purposes of contract performance including processing of complaints / warranty:

art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR

on the basis of a legitimate interest (art. 6 (1) (f) EU-GDPR).

Processing of personal data for marketing purposes by spring:

spring and the corresponding contracted service providers (e.g. lettershops) use the name and address for additional measures aimed at retaining and reactivating customers. This includes the sending of further information on interesting products and services by post.

spring also processes both the mandatory data collected during the use of offers / services and the voluntarily held data, to customise your experience of the exhibition as a visitor or exhibitor, to improve it on an ongoing basis and to be able to offer you services tailored to your interests in the future as well. This means we use the data collected during the use of offers / services to support you in the best possible way in your business development and to inform you of interesting options concerning an exhibition visit and/or your participation as an exhibitor. We process this data in-house to comply with your legitimate interests in the protection of your personal data. Through this data processing, we can send you customised offers (website, e-mail or direct mail marketing).

We will stop using your name and address plus the corresponding data from the use of offers / services for marketing purposes if you have not used any of the offers / services of spring for a period of up to 7 years. When 5 years have elapsed, we will continue to process the name, address and company, your status (trade visitor, exhibitor) and the last exhibition attended for a further 2 years for direct mail marketing purposes only.

The e-mail address will only ever be used for marketing purposes if we have obtained your separate consent. If the subscriber’s registered office is in Germany, the telephone number will also only ever be used for marketing purposes if we have obtained your separate consent. The telephone number of subscribers outside Germany will be used depending on the legal position of the country concerned as long as the subscriber has not objected to a marketing use.

The following exceptions apply: If spring obtains your e-mail address in connection with the sale of products / services, we use the e-mail address to market our own similar products /services. You can object to the marketing use of your data at any time and you will be advised of this when the data is collected and every time we contact you for marketing purposes. Furthermore, spring uses the telephone numbers of subscribers in Germany in particular in the commercial sector for marketing purposes if conditions for a presumed consent apply, for example in the context of an existing business relationship.

Legal bases:

For the processing of data for marketing purposes including any profiling and transmission connected with the marketing:

Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR

Telephone marketing: art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and section 7 (2) (2) ALT. 2 UWG (Law Against Unfair Competition)

E-mail marketing: art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR and section 7 (3) UWG (Law Against Unfair Competition)

Business partners, service providers, suppliers

It is not possible to conclude or process a contract unless you provide your data. During the implementation of the contract, we give your data to contracted service providers if this is necessary to perform the contract and to meet communication obligations.

Legal bases:

  • for the purposes of contract performance including processing of complaints / warranty: art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR
  • for passing on data to make available services by service partners contracted by spring Messe Management GmbH: Art. 6 (1) (b) or art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR
  • for the storage of data in accordance with the Tax Code (AO) / German Commercial Code (HGB) and any inspections by the tax office / auditors: Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR

Applicant data

For applications, we use your data to the extent required to process the job application. This may be contact data, all the data connected with the application (CV, job references, qualifications, replies to questions etc.) and, if applicable, bank account details (to refund travel expenses).

To carry out the online application process, we use the services of the third-party provider “HR4YOU AG” (Ulbarger Straße 52, 26629 Großefehn, Germany). HR4YOU AG only processes applicants’ data on our behalf and on the basis of contractual obligations which stipulate compliance with the agreed organisational and technical measures (within the meaning of art. 28 (3) (1) GDPR). The use of HR4YOU AG takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests and also the interests of the applicants in allowing a quick and effective application process (within the meaning of art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). The legal basis for this arises from section 26 GDPR.

Type and purpose of processing:
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. The provider of Google AdWords services is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
