Site Visitorship Information
Canon Solutions America routinely gathers information on Site activity, such as data on how many people visit the Site, the pages they visit, where they come from, how long they stay, etc.
Site Visitorship Information is:
The information Canon Solutions America collects, stores and analyzes is used to improve the way we do business with our current customers and potential customers. Generally, if visitors supply us with their postal addresses online, they will only receive the information they requested. Although it is not standard practice, visitors may receive unsolicited postal mailings from us with information on new products and services or upcoming events. If visitors do not wish to receive such mailings, they may indicate this preference when submitting online information requests to Canon Solutions America.
- collected on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means no personal information is associated with this data;
- gathered through the use of web server logs and cookies. A web server log is a file where website activity is stored. A cookie collects information as a user travels around the Web and feeds the information back to a Web server. When a website sends a cookie to the user's computer, it serves as a digital tag that notifies the site each time the user enters. The information can be used, for example, to automatically supply a password for a subscription-only site or to collect information about an online shopper's preferences so that electronic marketers can target their offerings to that individual. Although Canon Solutions America assigns a cookie to a visitor's computer, it does not know who that visitor is unless that person specifically tells us.
- used to better design our Site.
Canon Solutions America stores email addresses and correspondence of those who communicate with us via email (through a webform). Although it is not standard practice, if a visitor has submitted email through a webform on our site, they may receive email from us with information on new products and services or upcoming events. If visitors do not wish to receive such email, they may indicate this preference when they make online submissions.
Voluntary information visitors provide through online surveys and/or site registrations may be stored, analyzed and used for marketing purposes.
Persons who supply Canon Solutions America with their telephone numbers online may receive calls from us regarding their inquiries, service requests or orders they have submitted online. Although it is not standard practice, visitors may also receive telephone contact from us with information regarding new products and services or upcoming events. If a visitor does not wish to receive such telephone calls, they can indicate this preference when they submit information online.
As a standard practice, Canon Solutions America does not share any private customer information submitted online with third parties, unless they are acting as an intermediary. Some examples of intermediaries include shippers, Internet Service Providers, fulfillment houses and credit card companies.
We use third party job posting services to advertise job openings and to help applicants submit their resume, job application or other employment information to Canon Solutions America. These sites are not affiliated with Canon Solutions America and they maintain separate privacy policies that govern the transfer of your information. Should you have any questions about the privacy practices of these companies, we recommend that you contact them directly.

Canon Solutions America works hard to ensure that our systems meet industry security standards. To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard and secure the Information we collect online. The security of personal information you may submit in connection with a webform, promotion entry, survey response, and/or registration for any feature on the Site is of the utmost concern to us, and we strive to ensure its security on our systems. However, because no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk. We will continue to assess new technology to evaluate its ability to provide additional protection of your information.

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information from those we actually know are under 13, nor does Canon Solutions America target its website to children under 13.
