This data protection statement clarifies the type, the extent and the purpose of the gathering and use of personal data on this website by the provider responsible for the website “Messe und Congresszentrum Halle Münsterland GmbH” at Albersloher Weg 32, 48155 Münster, firstname.lastname@example.org, tel: +49 (0) 251 6600-0.
Personal information is information with the help of which a person can be identified, meaning information which can be traced back to one person. This includes the name, the E-mail address or the telephone number. However, information about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites a person looks at also counts as personal data.
Processing of personal data
Our internet sites can regularly be called up without users having to give information about themselves. We only obtain, process or make use of personal data if internet services of the Messe und Congress Cenntrum Halle Münsterland GmbH are used (eg online ordering, newsletters and other enquiries) and the data necessary for us to process your wishes is entered. This way you can decide for yourself which information you pass on to us. In addition, you know the content and the extent of that personal data.
Please note that the transfer of data is not carried out in encrypted form, therefore no confidential information should be sent by means of the contact form.
If you contact us by e-mail or the contact form, the information given by you will be stored for processing your enquiry as well as for any possible further questions.
With regard to registration in connection with our newsletter the data supplied by you will be used exclusively for that purpose. Subscribers can also obtain information by e-mail about circumstances which are relevant for the service or for registration (eg changes to the newsletter services or technical conditions).
For effective registration a valid e-mail address is required. In order to ascertain that a registration really is carried out by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double opt-in” process. In this we record the ordering of the newsletter, the despatch of a confirmatory mail and the receipt of the response requested in that mail. Your name and first name are similarly recorded to allow us to address you personally. This data is used exclusively for the despatch of the newsletter. It is not passed on to third parties.
You can withdraw permission to store your personal data and to its use for sending the newsletter at any time. You will find the link necessary to do this in every newsletter. You can also cancel your registration at any time directly on this website, or inform us of your wish to that effect by any of the means of contact given at the end of this document.
Data processing on this website
Our web server records information about each time you visit our website and each time you call up data. This information (server log files) contains such information as the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain names of your internet service provider and similar matters. These are items of information which do not allow any conclusions about your person. This information is technically necessary to correctly provide the contents of the website which you have requested. It is indispensable when you use the internet. Anonymous information of this sort is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our internet presence and the technology behind it. We do not connect this data to any other data.
Our website also uses so-called “cookies” which serve to make our internet presence overall more user-friendly, more effective or more secure – for example, when it is a question of making navigation on our platform faster. In addition, cookies let us measure the frequency with which pages are called up and general navigation. Cookies are small text files which are transferred to your computer system. We draw attention to the fact that some of these cookies are copied to your computer system, most of these being so-called “session cookies”. These are characterised by the fact that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of the browser session. Other cookies remain on your computer system and make it possible for us to recognise your computer system on your next visit (so-called “persistent cookies”). Of course, you can reject cookies at any time, as long as your browser permits this.
Use and transfer of your personal data and ring-fencing
Under the applicable rules and regulations concerning the protection of personal data, all personal data which fall within the scope of the internet services will be collected, processed and used solely for the purpose of performing the contract and for safeguarding our own justified interests regarding the advising and supporting of our customers, as well as appropriate product structuring. We do not pass any personal data to unauthorised third parties.
Incorporation of services and third party contents
It may happen that within the scope of this online service, the contents of third parties such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are incorporated. This presupposes that the party offering this content (hereinafter described as the “third party provider”) safeguards the IP addresses of the users. Without these IP addresses the contents could not be sent to the browsers of the respective user. Therefore the IP address is necessary for the presentation of these contents. We make efforts to use only contents the providers of which use the IP addresses solely to deliver the content. But we have no influence if the respective provider stores the IP addresses, for example, for statistical purposes. Where this is known, we inform the user.
Links to other websites
Our internet sites contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the data protection policy or the contents of these other websites.
“Messe und Congress Centrum Halle Münsterland GmbH” takes measures to ensure the security of your personal data. Your data is diligently protected against loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation and unauthorised access. All systems in which your customer data is stored are accessible only to a limited number of people. These employees are obliged to keep data confidentiality under § 5 of the German Data Protection Act.
Questions, remarks and information
If you have questions concerning the processing of your personal data, please contact our data protection officer. On request we will inform you in compliance with the applicable regulations if your personal data is stored by us and if so, which.
