A Wacom Account is required to fully access and use the Wacom Services, in
particular the Wacom Marketplace and the Wacom eStore.
This Agreement can be concluded by signing up
for and activating a Wacom Account (as described in Section 1.2.1 below),
or by signing in to a Wacom Service using an existing Wacom Account created
in Section 1.2.2 below):
When you sign up for a Wacom Account by selecting
a user name and password and providing a valid e-mail address (or alternatively
by using an existing social media account to provide your information), you
invite Wacom to make you an offer to enter into this Agreement. Wacom will
confirm receipt of your registration request by e-mail. If Wacom choses to
make an offer, Wacom will do so by sending you an activation link by e-mail.
This may also be combined with the aforementioned confirmation of receipt.
The Agreement is concluded if and when you activate your Wacom Account by
clicking the activation link. The following rules apply to any Wacom Account
created through any Wacom Service:

Organization is not a “third party” for this purpose).
When you sign in to any Wacom Service with an existing Wacom Account
The Agreement is concluded once you confirm this prompt. Your Wacom Account
will be subject to the terms you accepted when you created it.
The Wacom Account is not available to persons under the age of 18 or
to anyone whose Wacom Account has previously been terminated. By entering
into this Agreement, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18
years old and you have not previously had a Wacom Account terminated. If
you are using or opening a Wacom Account on behalf of a company, entity,

Subscribing Organization with the authority to bind such Subscribing
Organization to these terms, and that you agree to these terms on behalf
of such Subscribing Organization. In such a case "You" in these terms
refers to your Subscribing Organization, which shall ensure that each
individual user accessing and using the Wacom Account on behalf of the
Subscribing Organization complies with the obligations, limitations and
restrictions contained herein.
The Wacom Account can be used across a number of online services and
platforms operated by Wacom and/or its affiliated companies. However,
additional terms may apply to your access to and use of any Offerings
available on or through the Wacom Services (in particular the Wacom
Marketplace and the Wacom eStore) and such other online services and
platforms. You will be notified of such additional terms and be asked
to accept them whenever you try to access, download, or otherwise use
an Offering by Wacom, its affiliates or any third party that is subject
to such additional terms.

of Wacom’s third party licensor(s). You acknowledge that these licensor(s)
is/are not a party to this Agreement and that (i) they retain all right,
title and interest in and to the technology and do not grant you any licence
to such technology, (ii) they are not responsible for the operation or the
contents of the Wacom Marketplace or the Offerings you may purchase from
other third parties through Wacom Marketplace (and Wacom makes no warranties
on their behalf), (iii) they do not grant any warranties to you regarding
the technology, and (iv) they do not have any other contractual liability to you.
During the term of this Agreement, Wacom will permit you to access the
Wacom Services and use their functionalities. Such functionalities may

boards or product review tools). Wacom may however make reasonable modifications
to the functionalities of the Wacom Services, for instance to adapt them
to new technologies.
Wacom provides the Wacom Services with an availability of 98% on
annual average. Any downtimes due to scheduled maintenance do not count
as downtimes for the purpose of calculating the availability.

and/or third parties through the Wacom Services, (in particular the Wacom
Marketplace and the Wacom eStore). Such agreements are subject to the respective
terms communicated to you by the respective vendor. In the event of any
