1.2 Information Collected Automatically
Usage Information. Whenever you visit or interact with the Services, we, as well as any third party service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Services are accessed and used (“Usage Information”). Usage Information may include the URL you are coming from, your browser type, Device type, operating system, the page served, the time, and your use of features on the Services, such as the chat feature. This information helps us keep our Services fresh and interesting to our users and allows us to tailor content to a user’s interests.

Device Identifier. We automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for the Device you use to access the Services. A Device Identifier is a number that is assigned to your Device when you access a website or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Services, diagnose problems with our servers, evaluate Services navigation and better understand the demographics of our Services visitors so we can provide more relevant content, functionality and offers.

Cookies that remain in your computer for the duration of a browsing session are called "session" cookies (e.g., the contents of an online "shopping basket" will disappear at the end of your browsing session). Cookies that remain in your computer for a predetermined period of time are called "persistent" cookies. We may use persistent cookies to show you recently-viewed products, provide you with product or service recommendations, or otherwise provide you with a customized experience.

How to delete cookies. If you would prefer not to accept Cookies, most browsers will allow you to: (i) change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a Cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; (ii) disable existing Cookies; or (iii) set your browser to automatically reject any Cookies.

Web Beacons. We may also include web beacons (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, tracking beacons and clear GIFs) with the content that we deliver to you, which we will use to collect information regarding your interaction with such content. A web beacon is a transparent graphic image placed on a web page or in an email, which indicates that a page or email has been viewed or that an email has been forwarded. In addition, a web beacon allows third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in Cookies set by the third party. A web beacon may also tell your browser to get content from another server.

We do not use Google Analytics for interest-based advertising purposes. To manage your preferences with respect to Google Analytics click here https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.

It may not always be possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data remaining because of backups and other reasons.

You may make the above requests by: (i) sending us an email at preguntas_generales@cla.canon.com; (ii) contacting us by mail at Canon U.S.A., Inc. - Latin America Group, Attention: Web Support Group, One Canon Park, Melville, New York 11747; or (iii) following the removal instructions in the communication that you receive.

To learn more about browser tracking signals and Do Not Track please visit www.allaboutdnt.com.

6. TRANSFER TO OTHER COUNTRIES.
While the Services are provided to you in the country in which you reside or are located, the CLAG servers that process the data you provide us, and the call center you are connected to via the Services, are located in the United States, Panama, Japan and other jurisdictions. By using the Services, or providing us with any information, you understand that the collection, processing, maintenance, transfer and storage of such information will occur in the United States, Panama, Japan and other jurisdictions where the privacy laws may be different from those in the country where you reside or are located, and waive any claims relating to the collection, processing, maintenance, transfer or storage of data outside of such country.

7. SECURITY.
When you submit information to CLAG through the Services, you should be aware that your information is transmitted across multiple computer systems on the Internet. While we take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect your information, no security measures are completely secure, and we do not guarantee the security of user information at any time.

8. CHILDREN.
The Services are not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personal Information from children under 13 without complying with applicable law. If you are under 13 years of age, do not use the Services and do not provide any Personal Information to us. If we discover that we have unknowingly collected person information from a child under 13, we will make reasonable efforts to delete it.

9. HOW WE WILL INFORM YOU OF CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT.
Please note that we reserve the right to change this Privacy Statement, at any time. If we modify this Privacy Statement, we will post the revised statement here, with an updated revision date. To the extent that we make material changes, we will provide you with reasonable notice of the changes through the Services. Changes will be effective immediately (except for material changes) upon the posting of the revised Privacy Statement. Please note that if you do not agree to the modified Privacy Statement, you may not use the Services. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of the changes or any applicable notice period will mean that you accept those changes.

10. LIMITATIONS.
CLAG strives to collect, use and disclose Personal Information in a manner consistent with the privacy and data security laws of the countries in which it does business. Because of the differences among these jurisdictions, CLAG has adopted a Privacy Statement which creates a common core of values, policies and procedures intended to achieve nearly universal compliance, supplemented with alternative or additional policies or implementation procedures applicable in those jurisdictions with unique requirements.

Since CLAG must always comply with relevant local laws and regulations, such laws and regulations are to be followed even if they conflict with certain aspects of this Privacy Statement and related standards.

While this Privacy Statement is intended to describe the broadest range of our information processing activities in the United States, Japan, Latin America and the Caribbean, those processing activities may be more limited in some jurisdictions based on the restrictions of their laws. For example, the laws of a particular country may limit the types of Personal Information we can collect or the manner in which we process that information. In those instances, we adjust our internal policies and practices to reflect the requirements of local law and local laws will prevail over terms in this Privacy Statement.
