California Privacy Notice


Last Effective Date: December 30, 2022

ASICS America Corporation’s and its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “Company”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) are committed to privacy and transparency. This California Privacy Notice (“Notice”) applies to California residents (“Consumers”) and provides information for Consumers, as required under California laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (collectively the “CCPA”). In the event of a conflict between any other Company policy, statement or notice and this Notice, this Notice will prevail as to a Consumers’ “Personal Information” (as defined by the CCPA) (also referred to as “PI” herein) and rights under the CCPA.

Scope. This Notice provides information to Consumers about Company’s collection, use, disclosure, and other processing of Consumer PI, and the rights and choices Consumers have under the CCPA, and provides other required notices to California residents under California laws.

This Notice does not address or apply to our collection and processing of PI that is exempt under the CCPA. Further, this Notice does not apply to job applicants and candidates, current and former employees, personnel and independent contractors, whose PI is subject to separate privacy notices. In certain contexts, ASICS may act as a Service Provider to other businesses. For example, where ASICS operates as a Service Provider to wholesalers and retailers. In that capacity, ASICS may receive some limited PI to perform services for other businesses, such as to ship products directly to individuals. Please note that in such case, processing of the PI is subject to the respective business’s privacy policy, not this Notice. Capitalized terms that are used in this Notice shall, unless separately defined herein, have the same meaning as given to the term in the CCPA. You can click on the following blue links to directly navigate to the different sections in this Notice.

Where we use, disclose or process de-identified data (data that is no longer reasonably linked or linkable to an identified or identifiable natural person, household, or personal or household device), we will maintain and use the information in deidentified form and not to attempt to reidentify the information, except in order to determine whether our deidentification processes are reasonable and adequate pursuant to applicable privacy laws.

          Sales and Sharing of PI.

          Under the CCPA, “sale” is defined broadly and may include, for example, disclosures to third parties to provide or support personalized advertising, such as through third party cookies and tags. While we do not share your PI with third parties in exchange for monetary compensation, we do share Internet and Electronic Network Activity Information and Identifiers with third party advertising networks, social networks and data analytics providers (via cookies, tags and similar devices on our websites and mobile apps) to provide personalized online advertising, improve and measure our ad campaigns and reach users with more relevant ads and content. Under the CCPA, some of this data sharing may be broadly considered a sale of information. We do not sell or share sensitive PI nor do we sell or share the PI about Consumers who we know are younger than sixteen (16) years old. Consumers may opt out of “sales” and “sharing” of their PI as explained below.

          i) Sources of PI

          In general, we may collect your PI from the following categories of sources:

          • directly from you, including from your devices;
          • advertising networks;
          • social media networks;
          • Service Providers such as internet service providers, data analytics providers or order processors;
          • operating systems and platforms;
          • joint marketing providers;
          • other third parties, such as your friends or family;
          • ASICS affiliates and subsidiaries;
          • Resellers and distributors.

          ii) Purposes of Collection, Use and Disclosure of PI

          The purposes for which we may process PI will vary depending upon the circumstances. Generally, we collect, use and disclose or otherwise process the PI described in the chart above for one or more of the following business or commercial purposes and as otherwise directed or consented to by you:

          • Personalize content (including to further customize your training plan, allow you to adjust a specific run to the ground circumstances (i.e., concrete, trail or treadmill) or provide you with more detailed information about your runs);
          • Analytics and statistics (including to generate aggregated statistics and analytics about users of our products and Services and in store visitors);
          • Surveys and feedback (including to obtain feedback on our products and Services and develop and improve the quality of our products and Services (e.g., by conducting customer satisfaction surveys or research));
          • Security (including for security and fraud prevention and detection purposes, system integrity purposes, to prevent, detect and investigate fraud, misuse, harassment or other types of unlawful activities and to take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety or legal rights of any person or third party, or violations of our applicable policies and terms);
          • Business Operations (including to facilitate our business operations, to operate company policies and procedures; to enable us to merge, sell, acquire, or transfer assets (including to negotiate such)); and
          • Other purposes (including legitimate business purposes permitted by applicable law).

          Notwithstanding the above, we only use and disclose sensitive PI as authorized pursuant to the CCPA (section 7027 of the CCPA regulations (Cal. Code. Regs., tit. 11, § 7027 (2022)).

          • To advertising or marketing partners. We may disclose limited personal information (such as electronic identifiers, contact information, country and conversion status) to our advertising partners and social media platforms to show you suggestions and targeted ads (including on third party sites and platforms) or to create specific target audiences.

          • Corporate transaction. As part of any actual or contemplated merger, sale, transfer of ASICS’ assets, acquisition, bankruptcy, or similar event, including related to due diligence conducted prior to such event, where permitted by law.

          d) Other Retailers and Distributors of ASICS products and services

You will need to make your requests directly to those Businesses with which you have the Consumer relationship.

          We may make available certain programs or offerings that may be considered “financial incentives” under the CCPA. For example:

          • You can sign-up for an OneASICS account, which gives you access to certain membership benefits, which may include, from time-to-time, free shipping rates, free trials, rewards and other benefits (as further explained in our OneASICS FAQs here, subject to the OneASICS terms which can be found here and are also made available to you at the time you sign up). As part of OneASICS, we collect member PI in order to set up, operate, and administer your OneASICS account, and for purposes of providing members with various membership benefits. Signing up for an OneASICS account is optional. To participate you must opt-in to OneASICS and register a free account. You can terminate your account at any time. You can also keep your account and still opt-out of our promotional emails (however we will still send you transactional and informational emails related to your OneASICS account).
          • We may offer you the opportunity to “refer a friend” in order to receive rewards (such as discounts and coupons). As a part of a referral program, we will collect information from you including contact information for any friends that you choose to refer.

          As part of these programs, we collect your PI in order to set up, operate, and administer the rewards programs, and for purposes of providing you with various rewards or benefits. You can find a more detailed description of these programs and our applicable notice as required by the CCPA in the terms of the respective financial incentive program, that are presented to you at the time you sign up for the relevant rewards program. Signing up for our rewards programs is optional. We will not include you in a financial incentive program without your authorization and you may opt out at any time by contacting us as set forth in Section 7 “Contact Us”.

          The financial incentives ASICS offers to participating Consumers are reasonably related to the value of the Consumers’ data. As a basis for offering these incentive or rewards programs, ASICS has valued the PI it obtains, based on a reasonable and good faith calculation, by considering the expenses related to such programs. In doing so, we value the PI collected through the program as the equivalent of our total program expenses incurred to provide the program, including IT, administration, direct costs, third party costs, and service development costs. We operate the rewards programs and make the program benefits available to foster a positive relationship with members, which we consider to be invaluable.

          Consumers should review the applicable benefits description and program terms for the relevant incentive program, so that they can make an informed decision on whether to participate.

          In addition to CCPA rights, certain Californians may have additional rights, including:

          a) Third Party Marketing and Your California Privacy Rights

          Separate from your CCPA rights, California’s “Shine the Light” law permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of PI to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.

          We do not share personal information of our customers, as those terms are defined by California Civil Code § 1798.83 (“Shine the Light law” or “STL”) with third parties for their direct marketing purposes without either obtaining your consent or giving you the ability to opt-out. To opt-out of sharing within our family of companies (affiliates) for their direct marketing purposes, notify us at the postal address(es) noted below (you must make separate requests to AAC and ARA). Our sharing with non-affiliates will be on an opt-in basis for California customers so there is no need to opt-out of that sharing. If you are a California customer, you may also request information about our compliance with the Shine the Light law by sending a letter, to the following address, as applicable. Compliance is met by providing the California customers the opt-in and opt-out choices described in this paragraph above. You must identify the ASICS entity to which your request relates in your letter.

          For ASICS and Onitsuka Tiger:

          ASICS America Corporation (AAC)
          7755 Irvine Center Drive, Suite 400
          Irvine, CA 92618
          Attention: General Counsel

          125 Summer Street, 2nd Floor
          Boston, MA 02110
          Attention: Corporate Counsel

          Any such request must include “California STL Request” in the first line of the description and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code. Please indicate if you are opting out of affiliate sharing, seeking information on our compliance, or both. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through the mail addresses. As these rights and your CCPA rights are not the same and exist under different laws, you must exercise your rights under each law separately. You must also make STL requests to AAC and ARA separately.

          b) Online Privacy Practices

          For more information on our online practices and your rights specific to our online services see ASICS Privacy Policy.

          ii) California Minors

          Any California residents under the age of eighteen (18) who have registered to use our online services, and who posted content or information on the service, can request removal by mailing us at the relevant address provided in Section 6 c) below detailing where the content or information is posted and attesting that you posted it or alternatively submit a CCPA deletion request through our privacy portal. Subject to our reasonable verification of your identity, we will then make reasonably good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view or anonymize it, so the minor cannot be individually identified to the extent required by applicable law. This removal process cannot ensure complete or comprehensive removal. For instance, third parties may have republished or archived content by search engines and others that we do not control.
