C. Collection, Processing and Use of Your Personal Data
I. Use of the Information Offered
Volkswagen AG gives internet users the opportunity to research information via the Volkswagen Newsroom (www.volkswagen-newsroom.com). The information and material such as text, image, audio and video documents available on this website in the form of press material are intended solely for personal information purposes, or may be used for editorial purposes in the social web, or, in the case of journalists, influencers and media enterprise employees, may be used as a source for their own editorial coverage. The press material is publicly available and downloadable.
A subscription for an electronic newsletter is offered on a voluntary basis. We only use the data provided in this context (e-mail address, title, last name, first name, newsletter subscription period, newsletter language, newsletter topics) for the purpose of providing this service according to the consent given by you (point (a) of Article 6 (1) of the General Data Protection Regulation). Volkswagen AG uses the double opt-in process in this context. An e-mail will be sent to you at the email address provided requesting you to confirm your consent. You determine the storage period of the data for your newsletter subscription. Your data are stored for as long as you subscribe to the newsletter. You may withdraw your consent to Volkswagen AG to subscribe to the newsletter at any time and free of charge with future effect, e.g. by using the "unsubscribe" link provided in each newsletter or by sending an e-mail to the following address: email@example.com. Should you unsubscribe, your personal data relating to the newsletter (newsletter subscription period, newsletter language, newsletter topics) will be erased insofar as no other retention periods (e.g. retention periods for tax purposes) apply. User data (e.g. erasure at the user’s request) are processed by a data processor commissioned by us. User data can be viewed by IT service providers for system maintenance and monitoring. A registered user can access, update or erase all personal data relating to the newsletter registration via the Volkswagen Newsroom. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions concerning user data.
The Volkswagen Newsroom offers the user a basket function. On a voluntary basis, the user can collect documents in the basket and download them in the form of zip files. Zip files containing the documents cannot be downloaded direct, but require an e-mail address. The system then automatically sends a download link to the e-mail address provided. The e-mail address and the content of the basket are used to provide this service (point (b) of Article 6 (1) of the General Data Protection Regulation) and automatically erased after 7 days. User data can be viewed by IT service providers for system maintenance and monitoring.
