5. Information We Collect
In general, the information we collect is of two types: (a) User Information and (b) Usage Information. We also collect business account information and social media information from some persons under the circumstances described below.

We collect information from you in several ways. You provide us with certain identifying information when you create a Wacom account or access our Services. We also collect certain information automatically as you interact with our Services.  We may also receive information about you from other sources.  We may collect personal information from you when you register as a user or to learn more about our products, request a demo or evaluation period, provide comments and suggestions, sign up for newsletters, enter competitions and promotions, interact with us on our social media channels, order Apps, products or services, request and utilize maintenance and support services, request white papers, sign up for events or seminars, submit content or send us feedback.  If you contact our customer support on the telephone, we may collect User Information from you during your call to provide our Services to you.  If you do not want us to collect this information, please do not provide it, but you may not be able to take advantage of our Services or certain features of our Services.  For example, where we need to collect information to provide Services to you and you fail to provide that information when requested, we may not be able to provide the Services.  Examples of information we directly collect from you include:

User Information. This means information collected about users of the Services and includes contact information.  It also includes any content you store on our Services, including requests, questions, comments or reviews you share with us or others who use our Services. “User Information” also includes information that you provide to us to make purchases, such as payment information, identifiers, and delivery address.  If you contact our customer support, the User Information we collect will also include recordings of your communications with customer support. Users may create and store their content data including, without limitation, handwriting text, designs and graphics in our Services, and such content data could be “User information” as well. The content data may contain sensitive personal information.

Business account contact information. This means business contact information such as name, title, job function, business name, business address, business e-mail address, and business phone number that we collect about people we serve or work with, including actual and prospective customers, alliance and channel partners, contractors, vendors and other parties interested in Wacom or its products and services.

Usage Information. We collect information about your interactions with our Services. This includes or can relate to your personal information. This information enables us to, among other things, improve our Services and your experience, see which areas and features of our Services are popular and count visits, provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests and to analyze trends, administer our websites, track how you engage with our websites and other Services, learn about the systems, browsers, and apps you use to interact with our Services, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  We also use analysis tools and methods to allow us to better understand how our customers use our Services. This includes how often the Services are used, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, any exceptions that occur within the software and the source from which the application was downloaded.

To do this, we use cookies and similar technologies, such as web beacons, to help us collect this information.  The companies that provide the cookie and similar technologies used in our website have access to and might use the Usage Information gathered through these technologies.  Such uses might include the development and improvement of services and products for our website, as well as the development of these companies’ capabilities outside of the services provided to us, including sharing information with these companies’ business partners.

Our collection and processing of cookies is described in greater detail in our Cookie Notice which may be found here.  We also compile certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information can include:

 

• internet protocol (IP) addresses
• browser type,
• browser language,
• device identifier,
• device type,
• internet service provider (ISP),
• referring/exit pages,
• length of visit,
• pages viewed,
• operating system,
• date/time stamp,
• clickstream data,
• crashes,
• system activity,
• hardware settings,
• time zone,
• the date and time of requests, and
• referral URL

We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. If you reach out to us over the telephone or via facsimile, we may also log information such as your phone number, forwarding calls, SMS routing information, and types of calls.

Social media information.  If you choose to login to our Services using social media accounts, we will receive your name, email address, and, generally, your social media identifier (sometimes also referred to as a user name or handle).  When a routing social media platform allows, we also sometimes receive your profile images and historical information about your interaction with our social media presences. We also monitor social media sites for engagement with our products and services, particularly including our social media presence. We may receive, consistent with the privacy practices of the social media platforms that we monitor, public information about interactions (such as retweets, re-posts, likes, and other reactions) with our social media platform, mentions of our products or services, information about our social medial followers, and information sent to us in direct messages or replies. When you send us direct messages or replies, we receive and process any personal information in these messages. So, for instance, if you mention that you received one of our products for your birthday, we would receive and store that information as part of our records of our support interactions with you.

We also use third-party social media tools to identify journalists and influencers relevant to our products and services. These tools may provide public biographical information on journalists and influencers. We use this information to make information about our products and services available to influencers, to measure the impact of influencers’ own social media profiles, and to communicate with influencers about our products.

Other third-party information. We receive information about you from third parties who support our Services including our payment processor, third-party marketplaces, and our sales channel partners. We may add this third-party-provided information to the information we collect on you from our Websites.

9. International Transfers of Data for Processing.
Please be aware that any information processed under this Policy may be transferred to or from another country or territory which provides different or less comprehensive privacy and/or security protections for the information.
Because of the global nature of our business, a co-operation among the Affiliates in the Wacom Group with respect to certain parts of the Services is established.

11. Security; Breach; PCI DSS
Wacom takes reasonable and appropriate precautions to help protect your information. We believe that these precautions take into due account of the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the information. However, given the nature of the internet and the fact that network security measures are not completely protective or impenetrable under all circumstances, we cannot guarantee the security of your information.

When registering for access to a secure area of one of our Services, we will ask you to select a username and password. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email.  Also, remember to sign out of the Service and close your browser window, your software, application or other Service when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your information and correspondence when accessing your computer.

When you make a payment at our Websites, we comply with our obligations under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), and we ensure that any third-party service providers to our Services who process customer credit cards also comply with the requirements set forth in the PCI DSS.

Any sharing of your information with third-party processors who are operating at our instruction will be made in accordance with applicable data protection laws.  These third-party processors will be required to comply with appropriate security and breach notification measures to protect your information.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.If you have any questions about the security of our Services, you can contact us using the contact information at the top of this policy.

You may also request to correct, update or remove information about yourself at any time. For any such request you may contact us at the address shown at the top of this policy. If your information is provided to us by your employer, you should direct your requests to your employer.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your information; however, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We will retain your information and the data we process on behalf of our customers as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we have collected the information, for as long as your Wacom account is active, as needed to provide you our Services or to comply with legal or regulatory obligations. We will retain and use this information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. If you delete any of your Wacom account information, we may retain certain information if required by law or for legitimate business purposes or to complete our contractual obligations to you.
If you become an inactive customer, or if we close or suspend your Wacom account, we will continue to adhere to the then current Policy when we collected your information so long as we retain it in our possession. We may delete any or all of your information at any time without notice to you for any reason or no reason unless otherwise required by law or contract to retain it.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that your information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We will attempt to respond to any request to access your information within 30 days. It may take us longer if your request is complex or you have made multiple requests in which circumstances we will notify you and keep you apprised of our progress.

14. California Privacy
In 2018, the state of California enacted the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), which affords certain rights for California residents. This section specifically addresses the rights of California residents under the CCPA.
  • A. Collection Categories

As explained above in Sections 4 and 5, we collect a variety of categories of information in connection with providing the Services. We explain these categories again, specifically in the context of the CCPA. In providing the Services, we collect the following categories of personal information: an individual consumer’s name, postal or mailing address, Internet Protocol (IP) address, unique personal identifier or online identifier, email address, account name, telephone number, bank account number, credit card number, debit card number, or other financial account information provided.

  • B. Information Sources

As explained above, we collect personal information from consumers themselves, directly via our website, interactions with our company personnel, and through social media, and, in some cases, from service providers such as payment processors.

  • C. Personal Information Use and Sharing for Business Purposes

As explained in greater detail above in Section 6, we use personal information collected for a wide variety of business purposes:

• to provide and manage the Services, ensure the quality and security of the Services, communicate with consumers about our Services, and fulfill any contractual obligations we have with consumers;

• to facilitate the establishment and use of consumer’s individual Wacom accounts they create for themselves. personal information to verify your identity and manage access to your Wacom account;

• to facilitate your participation on our online forums such as user groups and bulletin boards or in live or online events such as training seminars or conferences;

• for analytics purposes and to operate, maintain and improve the Services;

• to market the Services and gather additional information regarding the Services;

• to create new products and services;

• to protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity on or relating to our Services; and

• when necessary, to meet legal requirements, such as legally mandated reporting, subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process requirements.

We disclose your personal information for a business purpose or purposes to the following categories of third parties:

• Service providers, as explained in Sections 4, 5, 6, and 8, above, and with Affiliates.

  • D. Sales of Personal Information

We do not engage in transactions by which we provide a consumer’s personal information to other parties in exchange for financial payment. But the CCPA broadly defines “sale” to include transfers of information that do not necessarily involve monetary payment. With this broad definition in mind, we note again that the companies that provide cookies and similar technologies used in our website have access to and might use the Usage Information gathered through these technologies, which might include an individual consumer’s IP address. Such uses might include targeted advertising information based on individual internet activity and interests, improvement of the Services through website usage or data analytics, as well as the development of these companies’ capabilities outside of the services provided to us. It is possible some of the businesses providing services to us might share Usage Information with their business partners. In addition, some companies that provide services to us might need to access to and use customer information as part of providing services to us, and these same companies might use this information for the development of their own business capabilities, not solely for the delivery of services to us.

To notify us of your desire to restrict the use of your personal information by third parties, click the link below and provide the information required in the webform:

DO NOT SELL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION

iii. The Right to Opt-Out – The Right to Opt Out of Sale of Personal Information

You have the right to opt out of any sale of your information to a third party, i.e., to prevent a transfer of information to a third party that is not restricted in certain ways from making use of the information. As we explained above, some of the companies that provide cookies and similar technology might use Usage Information for development of their own products and services, including potentially the sharing of information with others.

DO NOT SELL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION

iv. Exercising Consumer Rights

To exercise the rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by one of the following methods:

• Emailing us at privacy-wtc@wacom.com;

• Calling us toll free at 1-855-669-2266; or

• Submitting a request through our webform accessible here.

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.

To verify the identity of an individual making a request, a two-step process will need to be completed. A verifiable consumer request must:

• Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

• Separately provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

iv. Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will cover only the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

  • F. Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

• Deny you goods or services.

• Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.

• Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.

• Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time. However, we do not currently provide any financial incentives.

  • G. Shine the Light Disclosure

We have not shared any personal information with other companies for their direct marketing use within the immediately preceding calendar year. Accordingly, California’s “Shine the Light” law, Cal. Civil Code § 1798.83 to § 1798.84, does not apply to us and we have not established any mechanism for you to request information on our sharing of information for third parties’ marketing purposes.
