If you opt in to receive newsletters or other alerts and notifications, we rely on your active consent in order to do so. You may opt out of receiving these communications at any time.

We also collect personal data from cookies, which we explain more about below.
Site traffic information and cookies
To learn about what cookies and similar technologies are, we recommend that you visit the following third-party website: www.allaboutcookies.org
Servers located within BP and hosted by third party service providers (which may be located outside the EEA) automatically log data about your visit to this website based on your IP address and user ID.
This information allows us to
• continuously improve our site’s content and functionality by analyzing where, on which types of devices and how our site is used, how many visitors we receive, and where they click through to the site from;
• track Castrol Volkswagen Group Hub page visits and asset downloads based on user IDs.

Who do we share your personal data with and where does it go?
Any transfer of personal data to this site will be secured by encryption. We may store or transfer your personal data to our other BP companies around the world. We do this under our group-wide Binding Corporate Rules, which guarantee an adequate level of data protection wherever your data is physically kept.
We have the right to disclose your personal data as required by law, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, request from a regulator or any other legal process served on BP. If there is a takeover, sale or purchase of our business, we may disclose your personal data to the new (or prospective) owner of the business.
How long do we keep your information?
If you register for, or login to, the Volkswagen Group Hub, your personal and business information is stored until you do not visit the site for a period longer than one year. After this time, with some exceptions, it will be deleted or made non-identifiable. The exceptions occur when a user was a contributor to the Volkswagen Group Hub, e.g. an admin that has uploaded assets to the site. In these instances names will be retained.
