Privacy Policy

The protection of your personal data is important to us. As the provider of this website, we, Economic Development Agency Dahme-Spreewald mbH (for further details please refer to the legal notice), observe the legal provisions of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG), the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and other data protection regulations. It goes without saying that we will handle your personal data responsibly. We would like to explain how your personal data is used.

Data security

It is usually possible to use our website without providing personal data. Where personal data (e.g. name, address or email addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We refer to the fact that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by email) may entail security vulnerabilities. Total protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.


We use “cookies” to enable the use of certain functions. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The data is collected and stored exclusively in pseudonymous form and is created under a pseudonym, known as user profiles. The data will not be used to personally identify the visitor of this website, nor will it be merged with data about the bearer of the pseudonym.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. However, most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can prevent the storage of cookies or receive a notification from your browser before a cookie is stored by configuring your browser settings accordingly. Note that if you exclude the use of cookies you will only be able to use some of our website functions, pages or parts thereof to a limited extent or not at all.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in what are termed server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Time
  • IP address
  • HTTP method
  • URL
  • Referrer
  • Cookie session ID
  • Response size
  • Response duration
  • Response code
  • User-Agent (browser)

This data cannot be assigned to specific persons, nor is it merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently review this data if we become aware of concrete indicators of illegal use.

Personal data

We only collect, process and use personal data such as your email address or other contact details to the extent that these have been entered by you on the website and transmitted to us and to the extent that such collection, processing and use is legally permitted or covered by your consent.

The use of certain services on our website, such as registration forms, enquiries, online applications or registration for our newsletter, makes it necessary to collect, process and use personal data. In this case we take the principle of data economy seriously. For each of these services, we state the purpose for which we collect, process and use the personal data at the appropriate place on our website.

If you register for the newsletter of Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Dahme-Spreewald mbH, we use the data you provide with your express consent to send you the newsletter. Your email address and name are required. You can of course unsubscribe at any time.

The personal data collected when using our website will not be passed on to third parties unless we are legally entitled or obliged to do so (e.g. for purposes of criminal prosecution) or you have given us your consent.

External service providers that we use to operate the website or to carry out certain services on our website process personal data exclusively on our behalf and are contractually obliged to comply with the applicable legal provisions on data protection and data security. They are not considered third parties in the sense of data protection law.

Image and sound recordings

If image and sound recordings are made during an event for the public relations work of the Economic Development Agency Dahme-Spreewald mbH or location marketing, you consent to their publication when you participate in the event. If you do not consent to the publication of these image and sound recordings where they relate to you, please inform the organiser.


We use up-to-date technical and organisational measures to secure our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons.

If legal, contractual, commercial or tax law reasons prevent the erasure, the data will be blocked instead of erased.
