1. What is a cookie?
2. Cookie settings on this website
2.1. Cookies for which consent is not required
So-called “strictly necessary cookies” are used to support functions without which it would not be possible to use this website in the intended manner. These cookies are used by us only, and are thus first-party cookies. They are only stored on your computer for the duration of the current browser session. Strictly necessary cookies: for the log-in function, we have a session cookie. Without that cookie, log-in would not be possible, and functions subsequent to log-in would not be possible either.
These cookies also, for example, make it feasible to switch from http to https, thereby making data transfer more secure. For strictly necessary cookies, consent is not required.
It is not possible to disable strictly necessary cookies via the functionalities of this website. However, you can disable them at any time via your browser. For further information, see below.
2.2. Third-party cookies for which consent is required
3. Social plug-ins
Porsche Informatik Gesellschaft m.b.H. also uses so-called “social plug-ins” (hereafter: buttons) from social networks such as Facebook and YouTube on www.porscheinformatik.at. When you visit our website, these buttons are deactivated by default, i.e. no data will be sent to these social networks without specific action by you. Before you can use one of these buttons, you need to specifically activate it by clicking on it. The button remains active until you deactivate it or delete your cookies.
When a button is activated, a direct link is set up to the server of the relevant social network. The content of the button is then transferred by the social network directly into your browser, and integrated by the browser into the website. Once the relevant button is activated, the social network can then collect data, regardless of whether you are interacting with the button. When you are logged in to a social network, it can associate your visit to that website with your user account. A social network cannot record your visits to other websites unless you have also activated the relevant button on those websites. If you are a member of a social network and do not wish it to link the data gathered during your visit to our website to your saved personal data as a member of that social network, you need to log out of the relevant social network before activating the button. We have no influence over the scope of data collected by social networks through the use of their buttons. For details of the purpose and extent of data collected and how this data is processed and used by each of the social networks, and of your related rights and the settings available to protect your privacy, please see the data protection notices for the relevant social networks.
We use social plug-ins from Facebook on our websites. We use the “like” button for this purpose. This content is provided by the US-based corporation Facebook Inc. (1601S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304 USA). If you visit any website of ours containing such a plug-in, the website will not automatically connect to this company. This will only occur with your express consent, which you will be asked to provide by clicking on an appropriate button.
For details of the purpose and extent of data collected and how this data is processed and used by Facebook, as well as your related rights and the settings available to protect your privacy, please see the Facebook Data Policy.
If you do not wish Facebook to associate the data collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent Facebook plug-ins from being loaded by your browser by using add-ons, for instance a “Facebook blocker”.
We use social plug-ins from YouTube on our websites. To do this, we use videos embedded in the coding of the website. This content is provided by the US-based corporation Google Inc.
