In such cases, certain service providers might require access to certain personal information to perform their functions such as facilitating speedy Covid registration at events, but such information may not be used for any other purpose.

Security issues related to personal information include that Porsche committee members or staff with access to such information could abuse it or be tricked into providing such information via ‘social engineering’ mechanisms. Data access will be strictly controlled and it may mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you. Committee and staff members will additionally be discouraged from making copies of databases.
In some cases, information may be retained as a hard copy to be used for a specific temporary purpose such as distributing Porsche Club apparel to the intended members. Credit card or debit card information are entered directly on the payment portal and the Porsche Club do not receive any credit or debit card information during processing. Where data are stored outside the borders of the country the privacy laws will be similarly restrictive as those regulations imposed by POPI.
