3. HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We are part of the Canon family of companies and may share your information with our affiliates which may be located outside of the country you reside or are located in, including, but not limited to, our parent company Canon Inc., located in Japan. When you provide information via the Services, we will also share your information with our affiliates to enable them to inform you of products, promotions, or other offers that may be of interest to you.
Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf
CUSA retains service providers and suppliers to manage or support its business operations, provide professional services, deliver products, services and customer solutions and to assist with marketing and communication initiatives. These providers include, for example, credit card processors, debt collectors, providers of customer support and live-help, marketing and communications, talent acquisition and employment management services, hosting and IT service providers, email service providers, automated data processors, shipping agents, website management and support services, contests and sweepstakes, order fulfillment and delivery. We may share your information with these companies to enable them to provide you with services on our behalf, and for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may share website usage and marketing information with our marketing partners.
In addition, if you inquire about a product that CUSA does not sell directly, we may forward your information to a CUSA partner or affiliate, and they may reach out to you about your product needs. In any event, we take reasonable steps to ensure that such third parties are obligated to use your information only to perform the service for which they are engaged. You expressly consent to your information being used as set forth in this Section.
We may also share your personal information:
- In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law; (in such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.)
- In connection with a corporate transaction, such as the sale of our business, a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
