Cookies and similar technologies (e.g., web beacons) are small pieces of information used to store technical and/or personal details, identify users of a service and enable certain functionalities. To learn more about the cookies used by our Services and how to reject them, please visit the Cookie Policy applicable to each of the Services, which can be accessed through the homepage of our websites or the relevant section of our apps.

3. Legal Basis for using your personal information

Canon Bretagne will only process your personal information where we have a legal basis to do so.

The legal basis will depend on the purposes for which we have collected and use your personal information. In almost every case the legal basis will be one of the following:

  • Performance of a contract with you: where you have ordered or requested products or Services from us and we need to use your contact details and payment information in order to process your order and deliver the products or Services to you.
  • Consent: for example, where you have indicated you would like to receive marketing and offers from Canon Bretagne, or where you have provided information to us voluntarily in order to enter a competition. You can withdraw your consent at any time; however, the means by which you may do so may vary from country to country.
  • Compliance with law: where Canon Bretagne is subject to a legal obligation and needs to use your personal information in order to comply with that obligation.

4. How we share your information

Except as set out in this policy or where you have provided your consent, the personal information processed when you use our Services will not be shared with or disclosed to other individuals or businesses, for their own use, other than Canon group companies.

For example, we may disclose your personal information to the following third parties for the purposes described here:

  • Vendors other subcontractors with whom we have a business relationship and who provide products and services to us so that we can provide our Services to you (such as warehousing and delivery, software development, website hosting and management);
  • Third party service providers which carry out marketing campaigns or run customer surveys on our behalf;
  • Payment processing companies, credit reference agencies and anti-fraud screening service providers in order to process payments and (where necessary) to carry out fraud-screening;
  • With our professional and legal advisers for the purposes of obtaining commercial, financial or legal advice;
  • In exceptional circumstances, personal information may be shared with third parties, such as the police and regulatory authorities, to protect our rights, property, or the safety of our customers, staff and assets,
  • We may also disclose your personal information if it is necessary to comply with a legal obligation in any jurisdiction, including where that obligation arises as a result of a voluntary act or decision by us (e.g., our decision to operate in a country or a related decision).

Your personal information may be shared by and between Canon Bretagne and other Canon group companies in order to provide our Services to you.

5. How we protect your information

Your personal information is held on secure servers and is not processed for any purposes other than those set out in the Privacy Policy. The servers Canon Bretagne uses to store this information are accessible to authorized staff only and Canon Bretagne ensures that adequate security measures are in place.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us at the contact details below.

We use vendors and service providers mostly based around in France. If we transfer your personal information outside to a country that provides a lower standard of legal protection for your personal information, we will ensure that your privacy rights are adequately protected by appropriate safeguards, for example, through the use of the EU’s standard contractual clauses if your personal information is transferred from inside the European Economic Area to outside.

6. How to exercise your rights

In certain jurisdictions you have the right to access, correct, update, restrict, receive a machine-readable copy of your personal information or delete your data as well as any other right applicable in your jurisdiction.

Note that after the deletion of your personal information, it cannot be recovered by you and any data or content stored on the Services will also be permanently deleted. We will also delete your personal information once it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was originally collected.

You also have the right to object to your personal information being used for certain purposes, including to send you marketing.

We will comply with any requests to exercise your rights in accordance with applicable law. Please be aware, however, that there are a number of limitations to these rights, and there may be circumstances where we are not able to comply with your request. To make any requests regarding your personal information, or if you have any questions or concerns regarding your personal information, you should contact us using the details below. You are also entitled to contact your local data protection authority.

7. Retention of your information

Canon will keep your personal information for as long as we need it for the purposes set out in section 2 of this Privacy Policy and in accordance with any retention periods required by applicable laws and during the relevant statutes of limitations. This term should typically not exceed 5 years in most jurisdictions. Where we no longer have a need to keep your personal information, we will delete it. Please note that where you unsubscribe from our marketing communications, we will keep a record of your email address to ensure we do not send you marketing emails in future.

8. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We will update our Privacy Policy from time to time to ensure you are promptly informed of Canon Bretagne’s data processing activities. We will not engage in any processing operations that might put in risk your personal information, and will gather your explicit consent where necessary to safeguard your right to privacy and where required to do so under the law of your local jurisdiction.
