Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our Porsche Club. In order for you to feel safe and comfortable when visiting our website, we take the protection of your personal data and its confidential treatment very seriously.
With these data protection notices we would therefore like to inform you about when we store which data and how we use it - of course in compliance with the applicable European data protection regulations.
Anonymous data collection
When you access our Internet pages, our web servers automatically collect information of a general nature. This includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of the Internet service provider, the IP address of the computer used, the website from which you are visiting us, the pages you visit on our website and the date and duration of your visit. This is only information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. We only evaluate this data for statistical purposes and anonymously.
Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data is only collected if you provide it voluntarily, for example to register for personalized services such as the execution of an order, registration for events or participation in a forum. Your data is encrypted before transmission and processing to protect it from unauthorized access. An exception to this rule is the sending of e-mails.
Use and transfer of the collected data
The personal data collected on our website will be used for order processing or processing of your enquiries and, if necessary, processed in another Porsche Club of South Africa internal computer system.
Your data will not be sold, rented or made available to third parties in any other way. Personal data will only be transmitted to state institutions and authorities within the framework of mandatory national legal provisions. Our employees and agencies are committed to strictest confidentiality.
Our pages use so-called cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive by a website. Cookies do not damage your computer and contain no viruses.

For this purpose, the above-mentioned data provided by you (e. g. vehicle data, date of birth, interests) will be stored in a database or table administered by the Porsche Club of South Africa, if you wish so. In this case, the Porsche Club of South Africa can use the data for individual member and prospective customer support, for promotions as well as for vehicle-related services of Porsche and can contact you for these purposes via the communication channels you require.
