Data Protection Notice
Service: Horn & Indicator
With the "Horn & Indicator" service, you can use My Porsche and your Porsche Connect app to remotely control a horn or indicator signal from your vehicle.
If you issue a corresponding command to generate a horn or indicator signal via My Porsche and your Porsche Connect app, this will be transmitted together with your Porsche ID to our system and from there to your vehicle.
In order to assign the command to your vehicle, the wireless interface for vehicle-related services of your vehicle transmits the vehicle identification number of your vehicle to our system.
In order to be able to display information about the status of the execution of the command, your vehicle then transmits a status message. The information transmitted by your vehicle will be stored in our system for display purposes. The information is displayed in your Porsche Connect app.
As a database for creating anonymized usage statistics, we store every service call by your vehicle or your customer interface together with your vehicle identification number and a time stamp for a period of 12 months.
By activating the private mode in the system settings of the PCM (Porsche Communication Management = central control unit for audio, navigation and communication) of your vehicle, you can deactivate the data transfer with our system via the wireless network connection of the interface for vehicle-related services of your vehicle. Deactivation does not include data transmission for certain emergency services. By activating the private mode or, alternatively, by disabling the remote access in the system settings of the PCM of your vehicle, you also prevent access to information in your vehicle via My Porsche or your Porsche Connect app. As a result, the functionality of the service may be restricted or may no longer be available.
