Due to the ongoing technological further development, changes in our services or the legal situation, or other reasons, modifications or amendments of our Privacy Policy may be required. We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy at any time and ask you to review the latest version at regular intervals.

If you have any questions regarding data protection, please contact our data protection officer at dataprivacy(at)mhp.com.


The subject matter of this Privacy Policy is personal data.

“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person.

Other than described in the sections below, no personal data will be collected, processed, or used during the visit of our website. When you visit our website, our web servers will automatically capture general information. This includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of the internet service provider, IP address of the computer used, the referring website, the pages of our website that you visit and the date and duration of your visit.

We cannot use this data to identify individual users. We will only analyze this information for statistical purposes and for improving the attractiveness, contents, and functionality of our website.


In the event we obtain a consent from a data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6, par. 1, lit. a of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis for processing your personal data.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for performing an agreement to which the data subject is a party this is governed by Art. 6, par. 1, lit. b of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This shall also apply to processing steps that are required to carry out tasks prior to the conclusion of an agreement.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for meeting a statutory obligation to which our company is bound, Art. 6, par. 1, lit. c of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis.

In the event processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, Art. 6, par. 1, lit. d of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis for processing your personal data.

If data processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis for processing your personal data.

The passing on of your personal data within the Porsche Group for the purpose of responding to and forwarding inquiries is also subject to these statutory provisions.


Personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Data may be stored beyond this period, if provided by EU regulations, national law, or other rules and regulations adopted by the EU or national legislators by which the controller is bound. Data will also be blocked or deleted when a storage period set forth in any of the indicated rules and regulations expires unless the further storage of data is required for the conclusion of a contract or contract performance.


Personal data will only be collected if you provide it upon your own request, e.g., as a participant of a survey or when registering for personalized services. In these cases, you will be notified of the intended storage purpose and, if necessary, asked to grant your consent to data storage.

Personal data collected in connection with our website will only be used for filling orders or processing your inquiries unless you grant your consent to other forms of processing.

Any other form of processing requires your prior consent.

This use of data is restricted to the purposes of advertising and market and public opinion research and this data will be exclusively available to MHP.

You may withdraw your consent to a particular type of use at any time with effect to the future.

Your data will not be sold, rented, or made available to third parties in any manner other than those described herein. Data transmission of personal data to state and public authorities will only be carried out subject to mandatory national statutory provisions. Our employees, agencies, and dealers have been bound to the duty of strict confidentiality.


You may contact us by writing to our email address. Of course, we will use any personal data provided to us this way only for the purpose for which it was made available during this contact.

To the extent that our contact form contains fields that are not required for contacting you, these fields are marked as optional fields. This information helps us to gather further details regarding your inquiry and improves the handling of your concern.

We expressly draw your attention to the fact that you provide your information on a voluntary basis and that you grant your consent to us using it. In the event this should concern information on other communication channels (for instance, email account, phone number), you also provide your consent that we may contact you that way in order to respond to your inquiry.

In addition, at the time of sending the message the following data will be stored:

  • IP address of use
  • date and time of registration

Data processing is not permissible unless you have granted your consent.

You may apply for a job with MHP online using our recruiting platform. Your online application is transmitted directly to the HR department via an encrypted connection and will be treated in strict confidence. Of course, we will use your information only for processing your application and will not pass it on to third parties.

If you have applied for a particular position and this position is has been filled or if we believe that you are similarly or even better suited for another position, we would like to pass on your application within the Porsche Group. In the course of the application process you may determine on the entry screen whether you agree with this forwarding or not.

Your personal data will be immediately deleted upon the completion of the application process or upon the expiration of a period of six (6) months unless you have granted your express consent to a longer storage period of your data.

Please note that we accept job applications only through our recruiting platform. If you should apply by email anyway, we expressly draw your attention to the fact that email attachments are not encrypted.

The processing of data obtained through a user’s registration for a newsletter is governed by Art. 6, par 1, lit. a of the GDPR, if the user has granted his/her consent.

In the event that we initially contact you by phone, we have generated your data from public sources. Our interest in the initial telephone contact overrides the interest of the data subject, since we exclusively contact B2B customers via contact channels available from public sources and the contact refers to specific processes in connection with the business activity of the person concerned. During this initial phone call, we will merely inquire whether this particular person is interested in establishing a contact with MHP and do not comprehensively present our services.


During each visit of our web pages, our system will automatically collect data and information from the retrieving computer system. The following information will be collected:

Information on the browser type and the version used

  • User’s operating syste
  • User’s internet service provider (ISP
  • IP address of use
  • date and time of acces
  • Websites from which user’s system is referred to our websit
  • Websites that the user’s system calls up through our website

This information will also be stored in the logfiles of our system. This information will not be stored together with other personal data of the user.

The temporary storing of data and logfiles is governed by Art. 6, par 1, lit. f of the GDPR.

The IP address needs to be temporarily stored by the system in order to allow the delivery of the website to the user’s computer. To this end, the IP address of the user needs to be stored during the entire session.

This information will be stored in logfiles in order to ensure the operability of the website. In addition, this data helps us to optimize our website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. This information will not be analyzed for marketing purposes. We have a legitimate interest in data processing for these purposes pursuant to Art. 6, par. 1, lit. f of the GDPR.

Data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for attaining the purpose for which it was collected. With regard to the collection of data for the purpose of making the website available this is the case when the session concerned is over.

In the event data is stored in logfiles, data will be deleted no later than within seven (7) days. It is possible to store data for a longer period. In this case, the IP addresses of the users will be deleted or pseudonymized so that the retrieving software client may no longer be assigned to an individual.


With regard to the collection of personal data using website optimization tools we refer to our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6, par. 1, lit f. GDPR in connection with recital no. 47. In accordance herewith, direct marketing purposes usually constitute a legitimate interest. Your interests, basic rights and fundamental freedoms do not override our interest in advertising since we comprehensively inform you in our Privacy Policy about the data collection and you have the possibility of opting-out (via link or browser settings) at any time. In addition, we only use pseudonymized tracking.


Our website uses both session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies are temporary cookies that are stored on the web browser of a user until the browser window is closed and, thus, the session cookies are deleted.

These cookies are not deleted when the browser software is closed. This type of cookies will be used to reuse the user’s preferences once they return to our web page.

Data transmission to other group companies

Generally, your data will not be transmitted to third parties outside MHP, unless this is a mandatory statutory duty or if this data transmission is required for performing the contract or if you have granted your express prior consent. External service providers and partner companies will only receive your data to the extent necessary to process your inquiry. However, in these events, the scope of data transmitted will be restricted to the necessary minimum amount of data. To the extent that our service providers have access to your personal data, we shall ensure that these will comply with the data protection law, rules, and regulations in the same manner. Please note the corresponding privacy policies of these service providers. The corresponding service provider is responsible for the contents of third-party services, provided, however, that we will monitor the services for their compliance with statutory provisions to the extent reasonable.

Data transmission to external service providers (processors)

Your data will be forwarded to service providers that perform services on our behalf and assist MHP in the provision of its services.

If your personal data is processed by commissioned service providers, these activities will be carried out within the scope of data processing pursuant to Art. 28 of the GDPR. The service providers referred to above will only be granted access to such personal data that is needed for performing the corresponding tasks. These service providers are not allowed to pass on your personal data or to use it for any other purpose, in particular, for their own advertising or marketing purposes.

To the extent that external service providers have access to your personal data, we have ensured by legal measures, privacy by default and by design, and through regular reviews and inspections that they will comply with the applicable data protection laws, rules, and regulations.

Your personal data will not be transmitted to other companies for commercial purposes.
