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).

First Party and Third Party Cookies
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.

Facebook Custom Audience
CASIO uses Facebook Custom Audience via "Facebook Custom Audiences from a Website": By using "Facebook Custom Audiences from a Website", we incorporate a tracking pixel (Facebook Pixel) in the head section of the CASIO-Website, which marks CASIO-Website users and recognises them the next time they visit the social network. To this end, the pixel uses browser information, visited websites and a hashed Facebook ID of the CASIO-Website user. This makes it possible for us to employ retargeting, i.e., to target CASIO-Website users again with Facebook ads by means of Facebook ID-based cross-device tracking.
By using this tool, both, CASIO and Facebook, get and process information about your online behavior.
