Hey @Lilliane
 
Initially, please note that, for security reasons, sharing an account with others is not recommended. You can find more info about this here: https://help.dropbox.com/security/share-account
 
However, if you are referring to shared folders and you want to exclude certain subfolders, I’m afraid this isn’t currently possible. Instead, you can unshare the original folder, and share the individual folders to the users you want to gain access to. 
 
Let me know if you have any other questions!
