Information about the website


When this website is accessed, we use session cookies (small files) that are stored on your hard disk and valid for the duration of your visit to the website. A cookie is a small data set that is stored on your computer for the use of our website. These cookies are only used to detect the frequency of the call command and the time spent on our websites. Although your IP address is also retrieved for processing reasons, it is used in anonymous form. No personal data are evaluated.

We also use cookies with a validity of 30 days for the online job market in order to save the stored / most recently performed searches, etc. These cookies remain on your computer so that it can then, for example, trace the last search session when you log in again. You can set your browser to determine whether all or some cookies should automatically be deleted after closing the browser.

Information for further data processing

Collection of additional data

The website of the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy can be used to enter personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) when contacting the Ministry, to subscribe to the Newsletter, to receive feedback and, if applicable, to take part in discussion forums. Use of the services offered by the user is strictly on a voluntary basis.

When publications are ordered on the website using the order lists provided, orders of larger quantities will, for technical reasons, be forwarded to “PORTICA GmbH Marketing Support, Von-Galen-Straße 35, 47906 Kempen", which is the company commissioned to ship certain consignments. After completion of the order, the data will be deleted by the company. The order can alternatively be placed with the Ministry by telephone / fax and/or by post. These data will also be destroyed on completion of the order.

The e-mail addresses required for sending out the Newsletter are saved on the Newsletter server in the Bavarian State Agency for Statistics and Data Processing (Bayerisches Landesamt für Statistik und Datenverarbeitung) and are not used for any purposes other than dispatch of the Newsletters. Subscribers to the Newsletters can themselves cancel their subscription at any time; the e-mail addresses will then automatically be deleted.

In any case (e.g. for ordering, Newsletters, feedback), the personal data provided (in particular name, e-mail address) are processed solely with a view to sending the required publications or information or for such other purposes as may be explicitly mentioned in the individual form and will not be passed on to third parties.

Electronic mail (email)

Information that you send to us unencrypted via electronic mail (email) might be read by third parties while being transferred. As a general rule, we cannot verify your identity and do not know who is behind an email address. This means that legally secure communication cannot be guaranteed by simple email. We—like many email providers—use a filter against unwanted advertising ("spam filter"), which in rare cases may wrongly identify normal emails as undesired advertising and automatically delete them. E-mails containing malicious programs ("viruses") will be automatically deleted by us in every case.

If you wish to send us an email with confidential content, we recommend that you encode and sign it to prevent it from being seen and falsified without authorisation during transmission or that you send the message by regular post.

Please send S/MIME encrypted and signed emails to our following email address: info(at)


  1. A personal S-Mime certificate issued to the user’s personal e-mail address is required. Once registered with the provider, the certificate should be saved in the certificate store of the respective browser and then exported from there as a file when needed. The certificate should then be set up in the respective e-mail client. For instructions, see:
  2. To enable the user to receive the public key of the "Poststelle", which can be used to encrypt the email, the LDAP server "" with the search base "ou=pki-teilnehmer,dc=pki,CE=bayern,dc=de" must be entered in the email client of the user. The "Poststelle StMWi" contact should be selected in the LDAP directory.
  3. To ensure that the public certificate of PKI Bayern (issued for: info(at) can be verified by the email client, the “CA” issuance certificate is required. It can be obtained from the internet.

The "Bavarian VPKI Class3 Issuing CA-2016" is currently valid in the (*. Cer (DER)) format. The user must download and import it by double-clicking the certificate store. The email client must then be restarted. bIf you wish to receive encrypted emails from us, please include your public key in your email or give us a key Directory.
