1. What is personal data?
Personal data is information that can be assigned to your person. This includes, for example, your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. Information that is not directly associated with your person is not included. When you use one of our personalized services, order a product or subscribe, we ask you for certain personal data.
2. What are personalized services?
Personalized services are services that require registration with personal data. The aim of these services is the convenient and fast alignment of our online offer to your personal interests. Your login or registration data can be viewed and changed at any time on all Volkswagen portals where you register with your personal data under the link "Edit profile". Of course, you can also delete your data at any time. However, if mandatory data is affected by the deletion, this means that the personalized service can no longer be used.
3. How is my data used by Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH?
The personal data collected within the framework of the websites of Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH will only be processed and used without your consent for contract processing and processing your inquiries. In addition, your data will only be processed and used for purposes of advertising and market research and for the needs-based design of the electronic services of Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH if you have given your prior consent. The same applies to the processing and use of your data for the purpose of personally tailored advertising.
4. What are cookies?
A cookie is a small piece of data that can be stored on your hard drive. This record is generated by the web server to which you have established a connection via your web browser and then sent to you. The cookie allows you to be recognized when you visit the website without having to re-enter data that you have already entered.
Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH uses various cookies on its websites.
6. Do I have a right of access?
Of course, you have a right to know at any time what personal data we store about you. To do so, please contact the data protection officer of Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH.
7. Do I have a right to change or delete data?
You have the right at any time to revoke your consent to the use of data partially or completely with effect for the future. In this case, we will delete your corresponding data. Exceptionally, however, deletion may be precluded by laws, in particular with regard to data for billing and accounting purposes.
8. Will my data be passed on to third parties?
Your data will not be transmitted to third parties. A transfer to the companies of the Volkswagen Group or other third parties named in the declaration of consent will only take place with your consent and insofar as these recipients have undertaken to comply with the applicable data protection regulations vis-à-vis Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH.
As part of the processing of your inquiries and your use of our services, we engage service providers. These service providers are contractually obliged to comply with data protection regulations and are not considered third parties in the sense of data protection law.
9. Does this data protection declaration also apply to websites of other providers?
These declarations on data protection do not apply to the websites of other providers that can be accessed via links on the Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH website. Therefore, please note the respective regulations of other providers on data protection.
10. What about the technical security of the transmission of my data?
Personal data stored by Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH is stored in secure operating environments and is not accessible to the public. In certain cases, such as when you enter your password, the personal data is encrypted using a secure technique before the transaction is carried out. Our servers use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to protect the transmission of personal information. This means that the communication between you and the corresponding servers of Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH takes place using a recognized encryption method (currently SSL version 3, 128 bit). If your browser supports SSL, the transmission of personal data is protected by this feature. In this case, most browsers show you whether the security protocol is supported by a short dialog box or by an icon. Further information can be found under the help function of your browser. Almost all modern browsers support SSL. If you do not have the possibility to use SSL due to the limited functionality of your browser, we recommend that you use the latest version of Firefox or Microsoft Edge , which you can currently download free of charge from the Internet.
11. Will my connection data be stored?
Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH also stores your connection data when you visit the websites (e.g. Your IP address, etc.). We process or use these beyond the end of the connection only insofar as they are necessary to establish further connections, or are necessary for billing purposes, to determine malfunctions of telecommunications systems and to investigate misuse of our telecommunications services. In addition, we will delete your connection data immediately at the latest on the day after termination of the connection.
12. How does Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH protect minors?
Since the protection of minors is particularly important to Volkswagen Group IT Solutions GmbH, we refrain from sending advertising to minors if we know their age.
