      Cookies and Similar Technologies

      What are Cookies?
      When you visit our CASIO-Website, open our e-mails, or view our services online, we or an authorized third party may send you a cookie. Cookies are small text files located in your browser directory that may be placed on your device. When a website is accessed, a cookie that is placed on a device will send information to the party that has placed the cookie. Cookies are extremely common and used on a number of websites. Each cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value (usually a unique number). For a more thorough explanation of what cookies are and how they operate, please visit https://www.aboutcookies.org/ or http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.

      First Party and Third Party Cookies
      Our CASIO-Website may place first party cookies and allow third parties to place cookies on your device. The difference between a first party cookie and a third party cookie relates to the control of the party who serves the cookie. First party cookies are cookies that are specific to the website that created them. Their use enables us to operate an efficient service and to track the patterns of behavior of website users. Third party cookies, on the other hand, are placed on your device by a third party (i.e., not by CASIO). While we may allow third parties access to the CASIO-Website to place these cookies on users’ devices, we do not retain control over the information supplied by the cookies, nor do we retain access to that data. This information is controlled wholly by that third party in accordance with their respective privacy policy.

      Session and Persistent Cookies
      Our CASIO-Website may place session and persistent cookies on your device. Whereas the difference between a first party and third party cookie relates to the party controlling the initial placement of the cookie on your device, the difference between a session and a persistent cookie relates to the length of time the cookie lasts. Session cookies are cookies that typically last for as long as you are using your browser, or browser session. When you end your browser session, the cookie expires. Persistent cookies, as the name implies, are persistent and will last after you close your browser. This allows for quicker and often more convenient access to our website.

      Clear GIFs/Web Beacons
      Clear GIFs (also known as Web Beacons) are typically transparent very small graphic images (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that are placed on a website, which may be included on our services provided via our CASIO-Website and typically work in conjunction with cookies to identify our users and user behavior.

      3. Notes on lawfulness and period of storage
        • Lawfulness of the processing of personal data
          If we obtain your consent for the processing operations of personal data, Article 6 (1) a) GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
          With regard to the processing of personal data which are required to perform a contract with you, Article 6 (1) b) GDPR is the relevant legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which already become relevant precontractually.
          If processing of your personal data is required to fulfil one of our legal obligations, Article 6 (1) c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
          In the event that vital interests on your part or in the case of another natural person are interfered with which make a processing of personal data necessary, Article 6 (1) d) GDPR serves as the legal basis for this processing.
          If processing is required to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms do not override our legitimate interest, Article 6 (1) f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
          We do not exercise any automated decision-taking in relation with the processing of personal data through the CASIO website.
        • Storage period and erasure of data
          The personal data collected, processed and stored by us will essentially only be stored for such time as demanded by the concrete purpose of storage. If the purpose of storage/processing ceases to apply, i.e., when we no longer need to use your personal data to comply with contractual or statutory obligations, your data will be erased or anonymized.
          However, the situation may furthermore arise where European regulations, applicable national laws or other regulations (e.g. regulatory obligations) require that the data processed by us be retained for a longer period of time, e.g. statutory retention periods which can result from, e.g. Commercial Code, Tax Code and usually contain retention periods from 6 to 10 years, or if we need it to preserve evidence within the statutes of limitation, which is usually three years but can be up to thirty years. When these retention periods expire, we delete or anonymize your data.
      4. Your rights
        Insofar as we process your personal data, you are a “data subject” as contemplated by the GDPR. As a data subject, you may have the following rights in respect of CASIO. To exercise your rights please contact us as stated in Section 2.
        • Right of access regarding processing
          You can within the framework of the statutory provision request from us information as to whether personal data are processed by us. If this is the case, you have the right to request information about the extent of the data processing. The access information includes – inter alia – the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned, and the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed. You may have the right to obtain a copy of the personal data undergoing processing. However, this is not an absolute right and the interests of other individuals may restrict your right to obtain such copy.
          The right of access is limited pursuant to Section 34 FDPA. The right of access does e.g. not apply if the data (a) were recorded only because they may not be erased due to legal or statutory provisions on retention, or (b) only serve the purposes of monitoring data protection or safeguarding data, and providing information would require a disproportionate effort, and appropriate technical and organizational measures make processing for other purposes impossible.
        • Right to rectification ("Right to be forgotten")
          You may have a right to have your data corrected by CASIO if the processed personal data concerning you are incorrect. Depending on the purposes of the processing, you may have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
        • Right to restriction of processing
          If the preconditions exist for this, you can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. In this case, the respective data will be marked and may only be processed by us for certain purposes.
        • Right to erasure
          Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to obtain from us to erase of personal data concerning you and we may be obliged to erase such personal data. Such right to erasure does pursuant to Section 35 FDPA, for instance, not apply if in the case of a non-automated processing erasure would be impossible or would involve disproportionate effort due to the specific mode of storage and if your interest in erasure can be regarded as minimal. In such case, you may have the right to restriction of processing.
        • Right to data portability
          Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to receive the personal data concerning you which you have provided to CASIO in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Furthermore, you have the right to communicate these data to another controller without hindrance from CASIO provided the preconditions exist for this.
        • Right of objection
          You have the right for reasons arising from your particular situation at any time to lodge an objection against the processing of the personal data concerning you that occurs on the basis of Article 6 (1) e) or f) GDPR.
          The consequence of your an objection is that CASIO will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
          In the event that we undertake marketing in respect of yourself, you have the right at any time to lodge an objection against the processing of the personal data concerning you for such promotional purposes. You can notify us of your objection using the following contact details:

          D-22848 Norderstedt
          Germany
          e-mail: info@casio.de
        • Right to withdraw your consent under data protection law
          If you have consented under data protection law, you can withdraw this at any time for the future. Withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing conducted on the basis of the consent up to the point of withdrawal.
        • Right to appeal to a supervisory authority
          You may appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your place of residence, your workplace or the place of the suspected infringement if you are of the opinion that the processing of the personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

      7. Dealer search
        On our CASIO website we offer you as a user the opportunity to search for the specialist dealer of our products who is nearest to your immediate location. For this purpose we collect from you your geo data; this involves you entering these data in a designated form (a) or clicking to allow your web browser to identify your location by means of IP address (b). To be able to display the right specialist dealer, CASIO uses the service Google Maps API, a map service operated by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google can be contacted at Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. In this way, we can display interactive maps directly in your web browser and enable you to use the map function conveniently.
        • Collecting the data by form
          You have the opportunity on our CASIO website for the specialist-dealer search to complete a form in which you enter (optionally) the following details:
          • Your country
          • Your postcode or your town/city
          • If necessary, street/road name
          Then click on “Find dealer” and the specialist-dealer search is activated. In this way, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the following data are communicated to Google:
          • Your IP address
          • Date and time of the request
          • The time-zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
          • Contents of the request (concrete page)
          • Access status/HTTP status code
          • Data volume transmitted in each case
          • Website from which the request comes
          • Your browser type
          • Your operating system and its interface
          • Your language and version of the browser software
          This takes place irrespective of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists at Google. When you are logged in to Google, your data are assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your data to be assigned with your profile at Google, you must log out from Google before visiting the CASIO website.
          You have the opportunity to disable the Google Maps service in an easy way and thereby prevent data transfer to Google: To do so, disable JavaScript in your browser. However, we remind you that in this case you will not be able to use the map display.
          Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield for this purpose: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
          The use of Google Maps API is justified in accordance with Article 6 (1) Sentence 1 b) GDPR since the data in the present case are required to perform the contract. We use Google Maps API to be able to offer you a map function so that you find the right specialist dealer as quickly as possible. If you consented to such processing, we use your browser data for the purpose of market and opinion research and optimization of our CASIO website as well as for personalizing your user experience with Google Analytics. The legal basis for the processing of your browser data is Article 6 (1) ( f) GDPR for the optimization of our CASIO website. We provide you with further information on the balancing test upon request.
          For further information on the purpose and extent of data collection and processing by Google, please refer to Google’s Data Privacy Policy. This also provides further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
        • Collecting the data via your web browser’s geo query
          CASIO sometimes uses websites which facilitate location-dependent browsing. It is therefore possible for your web browser, before you enter the data independently, already to ask whether our CASIO website is permitted to access your location. As soon as you permit your web browser to approve the website with an active click, the browser transmits data (degrees of longitude and latitude) to the Google location service to determine your approximate location. The browser then releases this information for the querying CASIO website so that CASIO can display the right specialist dealer for you.
          In view of data processing by Google, reference is made to Dealer search - Collecting the data by form above of this Data Privacy Policy.
          The legal basis for processing is in this case Article 6 (1) Sentence 1 b) GDPR.
      8. Use of cookies
        In addition to the above-mentioned data, different types of cookies are used and stored on your computer while our CASIO website is being used.
        Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer or mobile end devices when you visit our CASIO websites. We receive a variety of information through the setting of cookies.
