Collection of personal information
Wacom collects your information in order to record, support and facilitate your participation in the Wacom Forum Services and to prevent unlawful use. The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself as a user of the Site and of the Services is classified as Registration Information. If you do not provide the mandatory Registration Information that we ask you to provide, you will not be able to engage in Wacom Forum Services. Similarly, if you wish to delete your information (pursuant to the mechanism set forth in “Updating your personal information and privacy preferences”) that is mandatory, you will no longer be able to engage Wacom Forum Services. In addition, with your explicit consent, Wacom may collect voluntary data such as age, gender and country of residence for evaluation purposes. This kind of data will be deleted immediately on your request.
By using this Site you agree and acknowledge that personal information collected through the Site or in connection with the Services may be used to register your rights, if any, to technical support or other benefits that may be made available to registered users. Further the personal information may be transferred across national boundaries and collected, stored or processed by trusted agents of Wacom such as web hosting providers, mail and email service providers and web analytic providers, to help facilitate Wacom in providing certain functions of Wacom Forum. This does also apply to trusted third parties who are bound by contract not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties.
In order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate our users, prevent fraud and prevent abuse of our Site and the Services, as well as to provide more consistent, relevant experiences to our users, we may on occasion supplement or correct the personal information you submit to us and your Internet Protocol (IP) address with information in our other databases or information from third-party sources.
Wacom may collect information about the use of the Services and the Site, such as the number of downloads and types of Services used. This information is generally collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually, although IP address and Session ID in relation to downloads may be tracked as part of Wacom’s review and fraud prevention efforts.
Wacom may use aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for improving the Site and the Services, providing more relevant experiences to the users and for statistical analysis.
Certain Services may require you to use the most current version of such Service or are offered in conjunction with other Services, which you may or may not have already downloaded. The Service may automatically check to determine if you are using the most current version or have other Services and through e-mail messages, pop-up boxes or similar mechanisms inform you if need to upgrade in order to use the Service you have requested. During this process, an IP address identifying your computer and the Product and Service version may be sent to a Web server, but system profile information is not transmitted nor are cookies used to store information.
Protection of your personal information
Access to Wacom Forum is granted only through a password and a unique User ID. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone.
Your Registration Information resides on secure servers that only selected Wacom personnel and contractors have access to via password. Wacom encrypts your personal information as it is transferred to Wacom and thereby strives to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information.
Personal information that you provide that does not constitute Registration Information also resides on secure servers and is accessible only to selected Wacom personnel and contractors via password.
Please note that any information you post to a public bulletin board, blog or chat room is available to all persons accessing that location, and your e-mail address and other personal information or content you upload may also be posted on these Community Sites. The information you share, including your email address, would then be available to all persons accessing these Community Sites and such information may be read, collected or used by others for any purpose, including sending you unsolicited messages. Wacom is not responsible for any information you elect to submit in these Community Sites or the use of such information. In addition, you should be aware that some Community Sites offer a service in which subscribers are e-mailed a copy of all messages posted to the Community Sites on a particular topic. Consequently, if you post a message to such Community Sites, your e-mail address will be sent to those subscribers who have indicated an interest in the topic of your message. If you do not wish for your personal information to be posted or distributed in this manner, you should not participate in the Community Sites.
In order to improve the Services and the Site and provide more convenient, relevant experiences to our customers, we and our agents may use "cookies," “web beacons,” and similar devices to track your activities, e.g. the analytics service Google Analytics provided by Google, Inc. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables Wacom to record your passwords and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. A web beacon is a small transparent gif image that is embedded in an HTML page or email used to track when the page or email has been viewed. A similar device may be used that may send data to a server when a set of user-initiated events occur such as the “Add to Cart” button is clicked. This device is similar to a cookie in that it tracks your visit and the data can only be read by the server that receives the data. It is different than a cookie in that it is not browser-based, may not function as an identification card, and does not store any data on your computer.
Personal Information that users provide about other individuals for tell-a-friend or other referral features on the Site or within Services is used by Wacom Forum to send an initial communication to the person whose details you have provided, and is not retained in Wacom’s systems. If you are invited by someone else to participate in shared editing or viewing of documents, photos, websites or other content, you will typically be required to contact the person who invited you to update, correct or delete the personal information they provided about you. In general, even though we may delete an account you hold with us in these types of shared editing or viewing areas, we may continue to retain information regarding your past actions with respect to content reviews or sharing initiated by others.
We may also ask you to provide information of others such as when reporting suspected activity with respect to the Wacom Forum Service. In this instance, we will ask you for the person’s name and contact information for investigation purposes. Personal information supplied in these instances will only be used for the purpose being submitted.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, and most Services that include similar devices are typically initially activated to collect data. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies or similar devices will probably not be able to access those pages or the related Products and Services.) Information about non-cookie tracking devices and their features, including disabling options, are contained in the information materials provided with such Services or on Site pages relating to such and Services.
