This data is then processed and used to only perform the requested services, and in compliance with the applicable data privacy laws.

CUSTOMER PERSONAL DATA PROCESSING
Canon Medical Systems is the data controller of your personal data, that is, the entity that determines the ‘purposes and means’ of the processing of the personal information processed about you, or, in other words, the uses for which Canon Medical Systems processes your personal data and the manner in which it is done.
personal data WE COLLECT AND WHAT WE USE IT FOR

- Personal data that we received from you from one of the above mentioned events, Canon Medical Systems and Canon Group Companies will use to contact you to provide requested information about our products and services. For you to be able to express further interests in our products or services, a Customer account will be created for you, which personally identifies you rather than your business, such as your name, position within your business, business email address or telephone number. As soon as the account is created, you will receive an email asking for you to log in, and provide you the possibility to review and update your Customer Portal account and set your preferences of Interests topics related to our Products and Services.
- Upon registering in our Customer Portal, you will be asked to review filled in details or/and complete several personal details that are necessary for your Customer Portal account so we can offer you the promotional information about our Products and Services of your interest. Some of these fields are marked as compulsory. If you do not provide us with information which is marked as compulsory we may be unable to provide all or part of the Services to you.
