The protection of your privacy while using our websites is of paramount importance to us. Therefore, in the following paragraphs, we are providing you with detailed information on the collection of personal and anonymous data.
Collecting and processing of personal data
Pursuant to the Austrian Telecommunications Act Section 96 (3), as amended, and the Austrian Data Privacy Act Section 6 et seqq., as amended, personal data may only be stored without restriction if you disclose your consent to us of your own accord, e.g., by registering to submit a request, by registering for a contest, or by subscribing to a newsletter), and if you grant consent to process them. When using one of the services offered, if you are requested to specify your personal data, such action precludes the creation of a personal user profile by combining your personal data with the data from the access data log via the already anonymised IP address.
Since consent to the use of your data for the aforesaid purposes may also entail the transmission of your data to the Volkswagen partners chosen by you (sales and service partners), financial service providers (Porsche Bank, Porsche insurance) or opinion research institutions for market surveys and customer satisfaction analyses, your data may also be forwarded to these offices as well. Beyond that, your data will not be forwarded to third parties - such as mailing list publishers and direct marketing firms.

These insights contribute to continually improving the quality of the services we offer. Specifically, the following data sets (records) about each retrieval are stored without restriction:
