Cookies contain information that is sent back to the host server during your next online visit. They can be read only by the server that originally placed them on your hard disk.

The legal basis for the employment of cookies is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

    Please note that by default these plugins transmit information (IP address, non SSL-protected data) as soon as you access the web page that contains them. This information is transmitted to the respective sites in the U.S. To protect your privacy, we employ a 2-click procedure in which information is only passed on to third parties the moment you activate a button by clicking on it. After that you can use the button for sharing content in the usual way. The legal basis for the use of social media plugins is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

    Log file data & Web Analytics

    In order to personalize and optimize this website, Deutsche Messe uses solutions and technologies provided by econda GmbH (www.econda.de ) to collect and store anonymized user data and to compile pseudonymized usage profiles from it. For this purpose, the website may use cookies so that it can recognize your browser the next time you visit. However, Deutsche Messe will not associate your pseudonymized usage profile with identifying data about you unless you have given your express consent. In particular, your IP address is rendered unrecognizable as soon as it is received by the server, thereby making it impossible for your usage profile to be matched with your IP address. You can opt out of this data collection and storage at any time by clicking here , in which case the opt-out will apply from the time of opt-out forward.

    Deutsche Messe AG uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). For the purpose of evaluating website usage, Google Analytics makes use of so called "cookies," i.e. text files placed on your computer. The default behavior is for the website usage data generated by these cookies (including IP addresses) to be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the U.S. However, Deutsche Messe has activated IP anonymization. This auto-matically truncates/anonymizes the IP address of any user accessing this website from any country belonging to the European Economic Area (including all EU member states). Only in exceptional cases, i.e. technical failure within Europe, can it become necessary for your full IP address to be transmitted to and then truncated by Google servers in the U.S. Acting on behalf of Deutsche Messe, Google uses the data generated solely for the tracking of website usage behavior, the compiling of reports on website activity for website operators and the provision of other services to Deutsche Messe in connection with website activity and Internet usage. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You can deactivate the use of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. However, please note that doing so may render you unable to make full use of this website. Alternatively, you can prevent the use and further processing of all data generated by Google Analytics cookies (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the following browser plug-in: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB .

    Anonymous site usage data are also collected and stored by means of a com-Score method. The data are stored on your computer in the form of cookies which allow for anonymous analysis of website usage. It is not possible to use the data so collected to identify specific users. The data are used for optimization purposes only, and IP addresses are stored only in anonymized form. The data are not used for any other purpose, nor are they forwarded to any third parties. If you prefer not to allow anonymous use of your data, you can opt out by following this link: http://www.sitestat.com/?lang=en_US . This will prevent "Sitestat analytics tag" cookies from being stored for comScore analysis.
