WHAT COOKIES ARE USED ON THE SERVICES?
may use a variety of cookies, including first and third-party cookies, in
connection with our Site, including:
Cookies. Cookies are
small files that are transferred to your web browser through our Site. A cookie
allows us to recognize whether you have visited before and may store user
preferences and other information. Cookies also can record events related to
your device's activity on our, and in some cases third party, services,
including the pages viewed, products viewed, purchase history, and date and
time of browsing. Cookies also can record information related to your device
(e.g., browser type, device type, operating system, version, IP address) and
events relating to ad serving activity, such as the number of ads displayed on
your device, and ads clicked.
- First-party cookies are placed by us. They can make your experience on the web more efficient. For example, they help us remember:
- Items in your shopping cart;
- Your log-in name; and
- Your preferences, such as your preferred language or location.
- Third-party cookies are placed by a company other than us. For example, we may work with an advertising network to deliver some of the ads you see. We also may work with companies in order to provide personalized product recommendations based on trends and on your browsing and purchase history on our, and sometimes third party, mobile apps or sites. Or we may work with an analytics company to help understand how users interact with our Services. These "third party" companies also may place cookies on your browser to understand your behavior over time.
pixel tag or web beacon is a small string of software code that represents a
graphic image request on a web page or email. There may or may not be a visible
graphic image associated with the pixel tag or web beacon, and often the image
is designed to blend into the background of a web page or email. It can be
embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information, which may
include personal information. Pixel tags can be used for many purposes,
including traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising auditing and
reporting, and to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.
As explained in further detail below, we use the following categories of cookies on our Services:
- Functional and Necessary
- Performance and Analytics
- Targeting, Marketing and Social Media
FUNCTIONAL AND NECESSARY
cookies are necessary for the Site to function properly and are therefore set
to "always active". They are often set in response to actions made by you which
amount to a request for services, such as setting your (privacy) preferences,
remembering items in your shopping cart, logging in or completing forms.
cookies are placed for analytics purposes to measure site traffic in order to
assess the functioning of the Site. In this category we only place analytical
cookies that have very little to no impact on your privacy, such as Google
Analytics with privacy-friendly settings (anonymized IP address, no data
sharing with Google etc.), otherwise we will ask your consent to do so.
- You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the Site will not then work.
PERFORMANCE AND ANALYTICS
cookies allow us to measure and analyze our Site audience so we can improve the
performance of our Sites. They help us to know which pages are the most and
least popular and see how visitors move around the Site. They also allow us to
improve the speed with which we can process your request, allowing us to
remember the Site preferences you have selected. It also helps identify issues
faced by users on the Site. Not allowing these cookies may result in
poorly-tailored recommendations and slow Site preferences.
TARGETING, MARKETING AND SOCIAL MEDIA
cookies allow us to make your user experience more personal and to recommend
certain products. We do this, among other things, based on your behavior on the
ASICS Site across the various devices you use.
these cookies collect information to tailor advertising to your interest. They
can be set by us or by our advertising partners. They may be used to build a
profile of your interests and show you relevant advertising on our Sites or on
other sites. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less
Social Media cookies offer the possibility to connect you to your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn) and share content from our Site through social media.

of the links below to go directly to the user manual for your browser.
websites do not recognize browsers "do not track" signals.
If one of our websites recognize that your browser is transmitting a Global
Privacy Control preference, our website will apply this as an opt out of "sales" and "sharing" (including third party targeting, marketing and social
media cookies) for your browser on that Site.
note that your preferences are browser specific, so, whether you access one of
our Sites from a different device or browser, you will have to apply your
settings or turn on Global Privacy Control for each browser and device you use
to visit that Site. "More Information about Global Privacy Control signals, is
available at https://globalprivacycontrol.org/.
You can also set preferences for your Android or iOS mobile device as described
in this section, including to opt out of "sales" and "sharing" (as applicable)
for these mobile apps via in-app settings for that app, which you can access
from the Settings menu.
example, iOS users can deny apps permission to track your activities across
apps and websites on a mobile device in the device settings. iOS users can
visit Settings > Privacy & Security > Tracking > Allow Apps to
Request to Track. Android users can reset the advertising identifiers by visiting
Google settings > Ads > Reset advertising ID. These controls work much
like deleting cookies in a browser - the device is harder to associate with past
activity, but tracking may still occur using the new advertising identifier.
can also adjust your advertising preferences for your Android or iOS device. Adjust
your advertising preferences in iOS, visit Settings > Privacy & Security
> Apple Advertising > Personalized Ads. To adjust your advertising
preferences in Android, visit Settings > Google > Ads
> Opt out of interest-based ads.
in mind that these preferences are device specific. So, if you use multiple
devices, you should adjust the settings for each according to your preferences.
Ad Choice Tools.
As noted above, our services may enable third-party tracking mechanisms that
collect data over time and across unaffiliated websites and mobile applications
to better gauge your interests and serve you more relevant ads, so-called "interest-based
advertising". For example, we and third parties (such as ad networks and other
advertising companies) may use the fact that you visited our services and have
interest in particular ASICS products to target relevant online ads for ASICS
or other products to you on non-ASICS sites and mobile applications.
may opt out of many third-party interest-based advertising in web browsers and
mobile applications, using the AdChoices industry opt out tool, as
described below. Please note that the opt-out will apply only to the specific
browser or device from which you opt out, and therefore you will need to opt
out separately on all of your browsers and devices. If you delete or reset your
cookies or mobile identifiers, change browsers, or use a different device, any
opt-out cookie or tool may no longer work and you will need to opt out again. In
addition, even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a third party,
you will still see ads from us but the ads will be less relevant to you and
interest-based advertising companies offer consumer choice through the
following industry self-regulatory programs:
- Web browser opt-out. To opt out in web browsers, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative's Consumer Opt-Out Page at www.networkadvertising.org/choices, the Digital Advertising Alliance's (DAA) Consumer Choice page at www.aboutads.info/consumers, the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada's Consumer Choice page at www.youradchoices.ca/choices.
You may also download the Digital Advertising Alliance's "Protect My Choices" tool at www.aboutads.info/pmc to help preserve the opt-out preferences you set on the DAA's Consumer Choice Page.
- Mobile application opt-out. To opt out in mobile apps, please download the Digital Advertising Alliance's AppChoices tool at https://youradchoices.com/appchoices or https://youradchoices.ca/en/appchoices and adjust the advertising preferences on your mobile device.
note that these opt-out tools and programs are not operated by us and we are
not responsible for their completeness, accuracy or effectiveness.
