Data privacy information

The "Climate" service enables you to use My Porsche and your Porsche Connect App to retrieve information about the heating and air conditioning process in your vehicle, operate the climate control functions by remote control and receive notification of special events during the air-conditioning process. You also have the option of activating a timer for air conditioning operations in your vehicle, thereby controlling heating or air conditioning in your vehicle. 

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.

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 show you information about the air conditioning process in your vehicle, your vehicle transmits 

  • the air conditioning status 
  • the remaining air conditioning time 
  • the status of currently active climate zones 
  • the set temperature for air conditioning

 as soon as one of these states changes. 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.

In order to inform you about events or changes in operating state, in cases where your action is required, messages will be transmitted via an Internet connection from our system to the 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 provide our services. Please note that the service provider's servers on which data is processed in the course of the service may also be located outside the European Union or the European Economic Area.
