1. CPS Membership

1.1 Membership of our free of charge CPS programme provides you with benefits - such as enhanced repair and loan facilities provided by Canon's own specialist repair centres (“Canon Professional Service Centres (PSC) or Customer Experience Centres (CEC)”) or service facilities that have been authorised by Canon to provide CPS services (“CPS Authorised Service Partners”), access to a dedicated CPS helpdesk within Canon, additional information about Canon photo video products and services, product support for accredited photographers at major global events, invitation to members' events around the EMEA region or special Canon offers.

1.2 Access to our free of charge CPS Membership is available within the CPS Participating Countries for the customers over the age of 18, who wish to register themselves as CPS members.

1.3 Membership levels will vary depending on the Canon equipment owned by you (“Canon Equipment”). You can have Red, Silver, Gold or Platinum Membership level, depending on the Canon Equipment you register. To start as a Red Member, though, you do not need to register any Canon Equipment. You can find the explanation of the membership levels here. Please, bear in mind that not all Canon products you register will affect your CPS membership level and gain membership points for you.

1.4 CPS Membership offers different scope of services to the members depending on the region of their residence. You can check what services are available in your country here.

1.5 When you register as a CPS Member and achieve Silver, Gold or Platinum status, you will be eligible for a Welcome Pack which contains your Membership Card. You can request the Welcome Pack from your account and it will be sent to the address you provide. If your Membership level changes at any time after you have received your membership card, a new card will not automatically be issued.

1.6 Your Membership Card and online account page contains your CPS Membership number, which you will need to quote when using any of the CPS benefits such as booking a repair or product discounts.

1.7 Your CPS Membership does not have an expiry date. Your membership level can go up and down as you add or remove registered Canon Equipment. The membership points gained for you by your registered Canon Equipment may go down when your registered Canon Equipment is superseded or is no longer possible for us to service. There is a grace period of 30 days. It means that if we reduce points on your registered Canon product, you are prevented from dropping below your current level for 30 days. This will be displayed on your dashboard when you access your CPS account.

2. How to become a CPS Member

2.1 Registration for CPS Membership is easy: simply register your details and the products you own on-line through canon-europe.com/pro/canon-professional-services/

3. CPS Membership Account

3.1 Your membership account must be held in your own name and should be registered to your own email address (which can be used by Canon to communicate with you and for identification purposes). You will be responsible for registering the correct and accurate information for membership communications.

3.2 You must ensure that your CPS profile is updated with any changes to your registered equipment or to personal information.

4. CPS Membership – Service, Repair & Back-up Loan Benefits

4.1 The Services and benefits to which you are entitled are listed in your Member Dashboard according to your country and level.

4.2 CPS members in those countries where CPS repair or loan of back-up equipment are not available can benefit from Fast Track repairs according to their level when they visit a CPS country which operates repair benefits. Any such repair will be at the discretion of the service facility and subject to capacity. For the avoidance of any doubt, there is currently no loan back-up equipment benefit available to these members regardless of membership level or any visitation to any another participating country.

4.3 Target turnaround time listed in the Service, Repair & Back—up Loan Benefits description shall apply only to a maximum of 3 products being serviced at any given time for each individual member.

4.4 Target Turnaround Times are not guaranteed. However, both Canon and the repair facilities authorised to provide CPS services will endeavour to meet the target times listed above.

4.5 Target Turnaround Times are based on working days (Monday to Friday not including public holidays in the relevant country) and will be deemed to start the working day after receipt of the product by the repair facility and ends on the day the product is ready to leave the repair facility. It does not include time spent in shipment nor any time spent awaiting any customer information necessary to complete the repair, such as missing documentation or acceptance of estimated cost of repair for out of warranty repairs for example.

4.6 Where applicable and subject to availability, a loan of back-up equipment will be offered in the event that target turnaround time cannot be met and will be offered strictly subject to Canon's standard Terms of Loan (a sample of which is shown in the ANNEX) which you will be deemed to have accepted if you accept or request a loan through your CPS Membership.

4.7 Target Turnaround Times and Loan of Back-Up Equipment are only applicable on repairs duly authorised for repair under CPS Membership and identified as such as set out in clause 5 below.

4.8 All repairs provided under this scheme are subject to our Canon Professional Service Centres (PSC) or Customer Experience Centres (CEC) general terms & conditions of repair and that of any Authorised Service Partner providing such services.

4.9 For out-of-warranty repairs, you are responsible for paying all applicable costs associated with servicing of the equipment including (but not limited to) delivery costs and any applicable taxes, fees and levies as may be required in the country where the equipment is submitted for repair, unless these costs are covered as part of your membership benefits.

4.10 All benefits are subject to availability and to change and may be withdrawn or altered at any time at the absolute discretion of Canon. Without limitation, Canon reserves the right to make exclusions or exceptions to the availability of benefits. Local variations to the published membership benefits may also apply.

4.11 Benefits are personal to you and not transferable. Only the registered CPS member may claim benefits under the membership and only in relation to the equipment that is fully registered and legally owned by that member. You may not claim benefits for any other person or any non-registered or partially registered equipment, nor allow any other person to claim benefits on your behalf. A product is deemed to be fully registered when product name, serial number, country of purchase, date of purchase and store purchased have all been completed and the product's points (if applicable) are validated and contributing to your points total.

4.12 No benefit may be claimed retrospectively, i.e. by claiming a benefit that you were entitled to claim but which you did not claim at the time when you were entitled to do so.

4.13 In addition to the benefits set out above, Canon may make additional benefits or promotional offers available to CPS Members based on membership status and level of use of CPS member services including (but in not limited to): repair services, loan equipment; shipping & delivery promotions: surveys and product offers.
