Data privacy information

The "Car Control" service enables you to call up information about your vehicle's current technical status using My Porsche and your Porsche Connect App. 


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.


To enable you to see information about the current technical status of your vehicle, every time the engine is started or stopped, when your vehicle's doors or rear lid are opened or closed, when defined battery levels are reached and when activated by you, the 

  • remaining range
  • vehicle position
  • vehicle direction
  • fuel level 
  • current mileage
  • the locking status including the status of doors, windows, bonnet and rear lid 
  • parking light status
  • as well as warnings displayed on your instrument cluster control unit

will be transmitted to us by your vehicle. The data will be stored in our system for this purpose until the next status change and will be overwritten when the status changes. 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 the European Union or the European Economic Area. 


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 without geolocation" service group.

The functionality of the service may be limited or no longer available after performing general deactivation in the system settings.
