Data privacy information for services: Car Alarm service
The "Car Alarm" service enables your car to use an internet connection to transmit a theft alarm signal which you can receive using My Porsche and your Porsche Connect App if the alarm system is triggered.
When this service is active, your vehicle's wireless interface for vehicle-related services initially logs into our system with the vehicle identification number.
To enable a connection to be established between your device and the required systems in order to display the location, a time-limited authentication key is exchanged between the servers of the service providers and your device.
We require this information in order to assign your vehicle to your user account and to allow us to check that you are entitled to use the service. The legal basis for this is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.
In addition, we also use this information together with the time at which the service was accessed (timestamp) for the purpose of creating a database for anonymised usage statistics. We store the information for a period of 12 months for this purpose. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in improving our service offering.
In order to inform you when the alarm system is triggered, a message is sent to the device you have stored in My Porsche with telephone number or that is connected using the Porsche Connect App after the "car alarm" is triggered. The message includes the alarm time and reason for the alarm. The legal basis for this is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.
The information transmitted by your vehicle will be stored in our system to display the incident, the result history and the reason for the alarm. The information will be displayed in My Porsche and in your Porsche Connect App. The legal basis for this is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.
We use service providers commissioned by Porsche to display the current location of your vehicle in My Porsche and in your Porsche Connect App. Please note that the servers of the service providers on which data is processed in the course of the service may also be located outside Canada.
You always have the option of deactivating the service in the system settings of the PCM (Porsche Communication Management = central control unit for audio, navigation and communication) of your vehicle. There is also the option of deactivating the service as part of the whole "Services with geolocation" service group.
The functionality of the service may be limited or no longer available after performing general deactivation in the system settings.
