Data privacy information

The News service allows you to read your personally chosen news in the vehicle or to have the news read out by the Voice Pilot. Integration of a news aggregator (e.g. Feedly) synchronises your news selection with the app on your smartphone or the corresponding website. During the setup process, you can also search for and subscribe to news channels of your choice or link to your account to import already subscribed channels. It is also possible to search for articles or channels in the subscribed news feeds. If you use feeds, you have the option of saving articles for "Read later". 

When you select the service in your vehicle, the PCM initially logs into our system with the vehicle identification number. 

 

So that a connection can be established where necessary between your account with a third-party provider (e.g. Feedly) and your news services, PAG is given access to your third-party account and the accounts are linked with each other. Alternatively, it is possible to use the News service without account login (as a guest).

 

A time-limited authentication key is generated so that a connection can be established between the servers of the service provider and the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) of your vehicle. 

We require this information you to check the rights for use of 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 display your personalised news, stored articles and news are transmitted from your third-party provider account to us after login with the Porsche ID or your third-party provider account. The transmitted data is used to display your personalised news in the PCM where you can read it or listen to it. Your data is stored for this purpose until you delete it manually. The legal basis for this is the contract concluded with you. 

 

For creation and provision of news feeds, we use service providers who are commissioned by Porsche. 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 in your vehicle. There is also the option of deactivating the service as part of the whole service group.

 

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