SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR SOUTH AFRICAN USERS
PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT
Save for personal data that we are required or permitted by law to collect, all personal data provided by you is provided voluntarily. However, if you do not provide the personal data requested by us, or you revoke consent previously provided, we may not be able to effectively manage our relationship with you and provide products and/or the Services to you.
SPECIAL CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL DATA
Reference to special categories of personal data includes Special Personal information as defined in POPIA (i.e. religious or philosophical beliefs, race or ethnic origin, trade union membership, political persuasion, health or sex life, biometric information, and criminal behaviour to the extent that such information relates to the alleged commission by a data subject of any offence or any proceedings in respect of any offence allegedly committed by a data subject or the disposal of such proceedings.)
WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION
• Use of information based on your consent
We may process your personal data on the basis of your specific, informed and voluntary consent.
You can withdraw your consent at any time but this may affect the way in which we manage our relationship with you and may have an impact on the products and Services that we can provide.
IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE
Our online Services are not directed to children under 18 years of age. If you believe we have collected information about a child under the age of 18, please contact us (see 'Information Officer - Contact and Queries' below) so that we may take appropriate steps to delete such information.
If you are under 18 years of age, please get the consent of your parent or legal guardian or another competent person before you give us any personal data about yourself. Your parent or guardian or another competent person should contact us here and provide us with their name, e-mail address and any other identifying information that we may request. ASICS needs this information in order to verify that they have provided the necessary consent. We may follow up by phone or other means in some circumstances. If you are under 18 years of age, do not contact us or provide us with any personal data until after your parent or guardian or another competent person has sent us an e-mail consenting to your contact and provision of such information.
INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Where required by POPIA or other applicable laws, ASICS will ensure that recipients of your personal data are subject to a binding agreement which provides an adequate level of protection for the processing of your personal data similar to that of POPIA. We will also obtain the necessary regulatory approvals where such transfers require regulatory approval in terms of applicable data protection laws.
We may retain your personal data for a longer period than the period required to satisfy the purpose for which your personal data was collected and processed or which is necessary for our legal obligations or to defend a legal claim if such retention period is required or authorized in terms of applicable laws, is required by a contract between ASICS and you, or on the basis of your consent. ASICS may also retain personal data for historical, statistical or research purposes provided there are appropriate safeguards against the personal data being used for any other purpose.
Subject to applicable laws, you have the following rights concerning your personal data: the right to request access to your personal data; the right to request the correction, destruction or deletion of your personal data; the right to object on reasonable grounds to the processing of your personal data where the processing is on the basis that it protects your legitimate interests or is on the basis that it is necessary for pursuing the legitimate interests of ASICS or a third party to whom the personal data is supplied; the right to object to the processing of your data for the purposes of direct marketing; the right not to be subject to a decision which is based solely on the basis of automated processing of your personal data; the right to submit a compliant to the Information Regulator in South Africa; and the right to institute civil proceedings.
In case you may have a question or complaint about how we process your personal data, you can send an email to the ASICS company responsible for processing your personal data (an overview can be found here). Alternatively, you may consider lodging a complaint with the Information Regulator.
