What are cookies?
Categories of cookies
Technically mandatory cookies: We use certain cookies because they are mandatory requirements to ensure that SCOPES and its functions can work in a legally compliant manner. Such cookies are automatically set when SCOPES or a specific function is accessed, unless you have prevented the setting of cookies through your browser settings. Technically non-mandatory cookies: On the other hand, non-mandatory cookies are set to improve, for instance, the convenience and performance of SCOPES, or to save certain settings you have made. We also use technically non-mandatory cookies to obtain information on the frequency with which certain parts of SCOPES are used, so that we can tailor them more closely to your needs in the future. We do not store technically non-mandatory cookies until you click the relevant box, confirming that you have read our cookie advice, and then continue to use SCOPES
Duration of storage
Session cookies: Most cookies are only required for as long as you access the current service or continue your session. They are either erased or lose their validity as soon as you leave SCOPES or your current session has expired (so-called session cookies). Session cookies are used, for instance, to retain certain information during your session.
Permanent cookies: It happens occasionally that cookies are saved for a longer period of time, for instance, to recognise you when you open SCOPES at a later point. It means that you can call up saved settings again. This enables you to access SCOPES faster and more conveniently, and you don’t have to make certain settings again, e.g. specify the relevant language. Permanent cookies are automatically deleted upon the expiry of a defined period of time after the date on which you visited the site or domain where the cookie was set. Flow cookies: These cookies are created to enable communication among different internal Porsche servers. They are set at the beginning of a user interaction and deleted when it is finished. Each flow cookie is given a unique identification number during the interaction, yet without allowing any conclusions about the actual customer or user
We use the following services for web analysis and to measure the reach:
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereinafter: “Google”). Google analytics uses third-party cookies to identify how often users access certain parts of SCOPES, as well as users’ preferences. The information generated by a cookie on your use of SCOPES (including your truncated IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. Google will use this information on our behalf, based on a contract processing agreement, to evaluate your use of SCOPES, to compile reports for us on SCOPES activities, to provide us with further services connected with use of the website and the internet.
The legal basis for using Google analytics is GDPR Article 6 (1) point f, and our legitimate interest is derived from the aforementioned purposes of use, especially the analysis, optimisation and economically efficient operation of SCOPES.
The acceptance of cookies is not mandatory for the use of SCOPES. If you do not want cookies to be saved to your device, you can always disable the relevant option in the system settings of your browser. Saved cookies can be deleted through the system settings in your browser at any time. Please note, however, that if you do not accept cookies, you may be limiting the functions of our website on your device
In addition, if you want to stop this site analysis tool, you can disable the use of Google Analytics cookies via a browser add-on. It can be downloaded from Your opt-out information is saved to your device, which sends a disabling command to Google Analytics. Remember, however, that such opt-out information only disables Google Analytics for the device and browser where it was set. Furthermore, you may need to set the opt-out again after you have deleted cookies from your device. As an alternative to the browser add-on, e.g. on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google analytics data collection by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is saved, preventing your data from being recorded when you visit this website in the future. The opt-out cookie is only effective for the browser where it has been set, and only for SCOPES. It is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in the browser, you need to set the opt-out cookie again.
You can also enable the Do Not Track function on your device. Once it has been activated, your device tells the relevant service that you do not want it to be tracked.
