Detailed data protection instructions for this service can be obtained from the product information in the Connect Store.
Using the Weather service, it is possible to view the weather situation at the current location, the active destination or a stored favourite location. In order to use the weather favourites function, the customer must log into the service in the vehicle with their Porsche ID.
When you select the service in the vehicle, the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) initially logs into our system using your vehicle identification number.
To enable a connection to be established to your vehicle's PCM, a time-limited authentication key is exchanged between our systems and your vehicle's PCM.
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 access the weather at the current location, destination and favourites location, a list of cities and coordinates is transferred from your vehicle to the content provider after the connection has been established. Information about the weather at the above-mentioned locations is retrieved on the basis of the transmitted data. The list of favourites with city name and coordinates is then stored in our system under the Porsche ID. Your data will be stored in our system for this purpose and deleted when they are manually changed by you. The legal basis for this is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.
In order to search for the weather at a location, the name of the respective city in transmitted from your vehicle via our system to the content provider. The city for which the search is to be performed and the GPS coordinates are transferred with the transmitted data. These results are then transferred to your vehicle in order to be displayed. Your data will not be stored or logged for this purpose. The legal basis for data processing is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.
In order to display the weather at a requested location, the GPS coordinates are transferred from your vehicle to the content provider without any direct customer reference. The weather data for the GPS coordinates is requested with the transmitted data. These results are then transferred to your vehicle in order to be displayed. Your data will not be stored or logged for this purpose. The legal basis for data processing is the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you.
We use service providers commissioned by Porsche for provision of the weather information. 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 the European Union or the European Economic Area.
