Cautions regarding forward-looking statements
Internet pages, investor relations releases, annual and interim reports, outlooks, presentations, audio and video files of events (live or recorded) and other documents on this website contain among other things forwardlooking statements that reflect management's current views with respect to future events. The words "anticipate", "assume", "believe", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "may", "plan", "project" and "should" and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: an economic downturn in Europe or North America; changes in currency exchange rates, interest rates and in raw material prices; introduction of competing products; increased sales incentives; the successful implementation of the new business model for smart; and decline in resale prices of used vehicles. If any of these or other risks and uncertainties occur (some of which are described under the heading "Risk Report" in Daimler AG's most recent Annual Report and under the heading "Risk Factors" in Daimler AG’s most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission), or if the assumptions underlying any of these statements prove incorrect, then actual results may be materially different from those expressed or implied by such statements. We do not intend or assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, which speaks only as of the date on which it is made.
This Internet site contains links to external sites, which are not under the control of the Daimler AG. Therefore we are not responsible for the contents of any linked site. The Daimler AG is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Daimler AG of the linked site.

Data protection officer:
Herr Joachim Rieß
Chief Privacy Officer
1. Data protection
We are pleased about your visit on our web pages and your interest in our offers. The protection of your personal data is an important concern for us. In these Privacy Statement we explain how we collect your per-sonal data, what we do with it, for what purposes and on what legal ba-sis this is done, and which rights and claims are associated with it for you. In addition, we refer to the Daimler Data Protection Policy:
Daimler Data Protection Policy.
Our Privacy Statement for the use of our websites and the Data Protec-tion Policy of Daimler AG do not apply to your activities on the websites of social networks or other providers that you can reach via the links on our websites. Please check the websites of these providers for their data protection regulations.
2. Collection and processing of your personal data
a. When you visit our website, we store certain information about the browser and operating system you use, the date and time of your visit, the access status (e.g. whether you were able to ac-cess a website or received an error message), the use of website functions, the search terms you may have entered, the frequency with which you access individual websites, the designation of files accessed, the amount of data transferred, the website from which you accessed our websites and the website which you visit from our websites, either by clicking on links on our websites or by entering a do-main directly in the input field of the same tab (or the same window) of your browser in which you opened our websites. We also store your IP ad-dress and the name of your Internet service provider for seven days for security reasons, in particular to prevent and detect attacks on our websites or attempts at fraud.
b. We only store other personal data if you provide this data, e.g. as part of a registration, a contact form, a survey, a price competition or for the execution of a contract, and even in these cases only insofar as this is permitted to us on the basis of a consent given by you or in accordance with the applicable legal provisions (further information on this can be found below in the section "Legal basis of processing").
c. You are not legally or contractually obliged to make available your personal data. However, it is possible that certain functions of our websites depend on the availability of personal data. If you do not make available personal data in these cases, this may result in functions not being available or only being available to a limited extent.
3. Purposes of use
a. We use the personal data collected when you visit our website in or-der to operate it in the most convenient manner for your use and to protect our IT systems from attacks and other illegal activities.
b. If you provide us with further personal data, e.g. within the scope of a registration, a contact form, a survey, a price competition or for the execution of a contract, we use this data for the purposes men-tioned, for the purposes of customer administration and - if neces-sary - for the purposes of processing and accounting of any business transactions, in each case to the extent required for this.
4. Transfer of personal data to third parties; social plug-ins
a. Our websites may also contain offers of third parties. If you click on such an offer, we transfer data to the respective provider to the re-quired extent (e.g. information that you have found this offer with us and, if applicable, further information that you have already provided on our websites for this purpose).
b. When we use social plug-ins on our websites from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+, we integrate them as fol-lows: When you visit our websites, the social plug-ins are deactivated, i.e. no data is transmitted to the operators of these networks. If you want to use one of the networks, click on the respective social plug-in to establish a direct connection to the server of the respective network. If you have a user account on the network and are logged in when you activate the social plug-in, the network can associate your visit to our websites with your user account. If you want to avoid this, please log out of the network before activating the social plug-in. A social network cannot associate a visit to other Daimler websites un-til you have activated an existing social plug-in. When you activate a social plug-in, the network transfers the content that becomes available directly to your browser, which integrates it into our websites. In this situation, data transmissions can also take place that are initiated and controlled by the respective social net-work. Your connection to a social network, the data transfers taking place between the network and your system, and your interactions on that platform are governed sole-ly by the privacy policies of that network. The social plug-in remains active until you deactivate it or delete your cookies.
c. If you click on the link to an offer or activate a social plug-in, per-sonal data may reach providers in countries outside the European Economic Area that, from the point of view of the European Union ("EU"), may not guarantee an "adequate level of protection" for the processing of personal data in accordance with EU standards. Please remember this fact before clicking on a link or activating a social plug-in and thereby triggering a transfer of your data.
5. Analysis of usage data; use of analysis tools
a. We would like to tailor the content of our websites as precisely as possible to your interests and in this way improve our offer for you. In order to identify usage preferences and particularly popular areas of the websites, we use the following analysis tool(s): Google Analyt-ics.
b. When using these analysis tools, data may be transferred to servers located in the USA and processed there. Please note the following: In the USA, the European Union considers that there is no "adequate level of protection" for the processing of personal data in accord-ance with EU standards. However, this level of protection can be re-placed for individual companies by certification according to the so-called "EU-U.S. Privacy Shield".
c. If you do not want us to collect and analyze information about your visit to our website using the analysis tools mentioned above, you can object to this at any time with effect for the future ("opt-out").
We implement your objection by setting an opt-out cookie in your browser. This cookie is only used to associate your objection. Please note that for technical reasons, an opt-out cookie only works in the browser in which it was set. If you delete the cookies or use a differ-ent browser or device, please opt-out again.
d. Below you will find information on the providers of the analysis tools we use and the respective opt-out options:

Google is certified according to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.
You can prevent the transfer of your data and its collection and processing by Google. Google informs about this via the follow-ing link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
6. Usage-based information (targeting and retargeting)
In order to be able to tailor our online marketing (e.g. banner advertis-ing) on the websites of our retargeting partners (Flashtalking, Google Adwords, Google Doubleclick and Vivaki) more specifically to your needs and interests, we use so-called retargeting technologies. Your in-terest in our products and services is stored in cookies. These cookies are read and used when visiting other websites that work together with our retargeting partners in order to be able to inform you as focused on your interests as possible. This is done anonymously, i.e. you cannot be identified by retargeting.
If you do not want Daimler and its retargeting partners to collect, store and analyze information about your visit and to tailor banner advertising to your interests, you can object to this at any time with effect for the future (opt-out).
An opt-out cookie is placed in your browser to technically implement your objection. This cookie is used exclusively for the association of your objection. Please note that for technical reasons, an opt-out cook-ie can only be used for the browser from which it was set. If you delete the cookies or use another browser or another terminal device, please opt-out again.
We use technical and organisational security measures to protect your data managed by us against manipulation, loss, destruction and against access by unauthorised persons. We are constantly improving our secu-rity measures in line with technological developments.
8. Legal bases of processing
a. Insofar as you have given us your consent for the processing of your personal data, that consent is the legal basis for the processing (Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR).
b. For the processing of personal data for the purposes of initiating or fulfilling a contract with you, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR is the legal basis.
c. Insofar as the processing of your personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of our legal obligations (e.g. for the retention of data), we are authorized to do so pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter c GDPR.
d. In addition, we process personal data for the purposes of safeguard-ing our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of third par-ties pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR. Maintaining the func-tionality of our IT systems, marketing our own and third-party prod-ucts and services as well as documenting business contacts as re-quired by law are such legitimate interests.
9. Deletion of your personal data
Your IP address and the name of your Internet service provider, which we only store for security reasons, will be deleted after seven days. Otherwise, we delete your personal data as soon as the purpose for which we have collected and processed the data ceases to apply. Be-yond this point in time, data is only stored if this is required by the laws, regulations or other legal provisions of the European Union or of a member state of the European Union to which we are subject.
10. Rights of the data subject
a. As a data subject, you have the right of access (Art. 15 GDPR), right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR), right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR), right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) and right to data portabil-ity (Art. 20 GDPR).
b. If you have consented to the processing of your personal data by us, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. The legality of processing your personal data before revocation remains unaffect-ed. We may further process such data pursuant to another applica-ble legal basis, e.g. for the fulfilment of our legal obligations (cf. sec-tion "Legal bases of processing").
c. Right to object
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter e GDPR (data processing in the public interest) or Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests) on grounds relating to your particular situation. If you object, we will only process your personal data if we can prove compelling legitimate reasons that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
d. We ask you to address your claims or declarations to the following contact address if possible:
Herr Joachim Rieß
Chief Privacy Officer
e. If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates legal requirements, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a compe-tent data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR).
