The "Trip Control" service enables you to call up information and statistics relating to the trips made by your vehicle using My Porsche and your Porsche Connect App.
When this service is active, your vehicle's wireless interface for vehicle-related services initially registers with our system using its 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 authorisation code is exchanged between the service providers' servers 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 called (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 be able to show you information and statistics about the trips made with your vehicle, each time the engine is switched off and when trips are reset in your vehicle, the
