We are pleased that you have chosen to visit a webpage of Volkswagen AG, Berliner Ring 2, D-38440 Wolfsburg, listed in the Register of Companies of the District Court of Braunschweig under No. HRB 100484 (“Volkswagen AG”), and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in our company and our products. Protecting your privacy is especially important to us. We would like to inform you about how your data is collected, processed and used in the section below. These processes are always performed in a manner that is compliant with data protection regulations.

  • an anonymous cookie ID, which does not allow your IP address to be identified,
  • The operating system and web browser you are using, and your selected screen resolution,
  • The date and time of your visit

Collecting, processing and using your personal data

Your personal data includes information such as your name, address, phone number and email address. Personal data shall only be collected, processed and/or used if you transmit it to us willingly, e.g. for the purposes of initiating, specifying the content of or amending a contractual relationship between yourself and us, or registering for personalised services. Furthermore, your personal data will be used only if you have previously consented to such use.

 

Transfer of data

Your personal data will not be passed on to any third party unless this is necessary for processing your enquiry. This is, for example, the case if you search for a superstructure manufacturer using Google Maps from Google Inc. (“Google”) and the manufacturer is then shown to you on the map.

More information on data processing at Google can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html
