Privacy Statement

We would like to make the use of our homepage as easy and safe as possible for you and observe the legal requirements for data protection. We would like to give you the following information on the use of the website:

What is personal data?

Personal data is all information (e.g. name, address, postal address, telephone number) relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. Information that is not associated with the identity (e.g. number of users of a website) is not included.

Access to the website of the WSC NWM

A log file is created each time you access our homepage or retrieve files and content. The data stored in this file is not personal data. The identity of the user cannot be derived from the log file. These files are stored and evaluated for statistical purposes.

Collection of general information

This website is operated on a web server that creates log files based on our legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f of the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), in which access is logged with IP (Access Log Files). This data is automatically deleted after 90 days and is used exclusively to defend against possible attacks by hackers on the system and for error analysis.

The following data is recorded in the log files:

Browser type and browser version

The operating system used

The referrer URL (the URL previously visited and linked to our website)

The IP address of the accessing computer (network)

The date and time of the server query

The status code search terms entered in the search form
The retrieved document/page

Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to improve our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Dealing with personal data

We only collect personal data if we are legally permitted to do so or if we have the consent of the user. The legal basis for the data processing of the Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Nordwestmecklenburg mbH as project executing agency of the WSC NWM are the DSGVO, the DSG M-V as well as data protection regulations in the special laws. We attach particular importance to compliance with the principles of the DSGVO, in particular "data avoidance and data economy", "purpose limitation" and "transparency".


Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system via your computer and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. The information contained in cookies enables us to make navigation easier for you and to display our web pages correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent. In particular, there is no transfer to European or non-European countries.

According to the security settings of your browser, cookies are activated for the open source web analysis Matomo when you visit our website. Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to learn how to change these settings. Please note that some functions of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or deleting the data provided during registration at any time.

In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit b) DSGVO. The deletion of the data takes place when no longer necessary. The statutory storage obligations shall apply.

Web statistics

In order to improve our offer and to estimate the reach of our website, we are interested in an anonymous analysis of website usage. For this reason we use the open source web analysis Matomo to create access statistics. This software is also hosted and maintained by brain-SCC GmbH and complies with the aforementioned data protection criteria. No external web analytics provider has access to this data. The Matomo application is operated in such a way that the IP address is anonymized before storage. Likewise, no cookies are stored beyond the session for the recognition of visitors. After closing the browser window, these are automatically removed from your computer.

However, if you do not wish to be recorded by our Matomo system, you can deactivate it here.

Your rights to information, rectification, blocking, deletion and objection

You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time. You also have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked or deleted, apart from the prescribed data storage for business transactions. Please contact our office for further information. To contact us in this context, please use the contact details provided at the end of this privacy statement.

In order for a block of data to be taken into account at any time, this data must be kept in a block file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of the data, unless there is a legal archiving obligation. As far as such an obligation exists, we block your data on request.

You can change or revoke your consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.

Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. Operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to Youtube servers is established. Youtube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can personally assign your surfing behavior to you. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.

If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.

Those who have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to reckon with such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

Further information on data protection at "Youtube" can be found in the provider's data protection declaration at:

social plugins

On our website we offer you the possibility of using so-called "social media buttons". To protect your data, we rely on the "Shariff" solution during implementation. This means that these buttons on the website are only integrated as a graphic, which contains a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. By clicking on the graphic you will be redirected to the services of the respective provider. Only then will your data be sent to the respective providers. If you do not click on the graphic, there will be no exchange between you and the providers of the social media buttons. Information about the collection and use of your data in social networks can be found in the respective terms of use of the respective providers. More information about the Shariff solution can be found here:

We have included the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:

Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA)

Xing (Dammtorstrasse 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany)
