In other words, the Yuify Services are one of the Wacom Services (as defined in the Terms (defined below)) provided by Wacom and/or its affiliates, and all of the Terms of Use for Wacom Services at https://www.wacom.com/terms-of-use (the “Terms”) will apply or apply mutatis mutandis to this Yuify Services, and the Yuify Platform Terms will additionally apply as part of the Terms. Wacom may, at its own discretion, change or cancel the contents of this Yuify Platform at any time, with or without notice to you. The Yuify Platform Terms, together with the Terms govern the relationship between Wacom and the user from the time of registration until the time of confirmed cancellation or termination. Usage of the user of the Yuify Services presupposes that the user agrees to the Terms and the Yuify Platform Terms and has taken note of, and will comply with, the rules for handling personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and regulations and Wacom privacy policy at https://www.wacom.com/privacy and Wacom’s privacy notice for the Yuify Services available at https://www.yuify.com/en-us/privacy-policy . Please read the Yuify Platform Terms carefully before you start to use the Yuify Services. By using the Yuify Services or by clicking to accept or agree to the Yuify Platform Terms when this option is made available to you, you accept and agree to be bound by the Yuify Platform Terms, and you represent and warrant that you meet the eligibility requirements herein and (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a terrorist-supporting country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. If you do not agree to the Yuify Platform Terms, do not use the Yuify Services. You agree that the Yuify Platform Terms govern and control your access to and use of the Yuify Services. To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the Yuify Platform Terms and any other Wacom terms or conditions, the Yuify Platform Terms will govern or control, unless the other terms or conditions expressly state otherwise. Except as set forth in the preceding sentences or as otherwise expressly set forth in the Yuify Platform Terms, Wacom will not be bound by any term, condition or other provision which is different from or in addition to the provisions of the Yuify Platform Terms, including for example, any term, condition or other provision submitted by you in any order, receipt, acceptance, confirmation, or other document.

The Yuify Services are a platform designed to help users control the ownership and other rights of their artwork and collaborations at any stage of the workflow through the use of Wacom’s proprietary watermarking technology. The Yuify Services allow users to register, publish and license visual or audio-visual content, such as graphics, drawings, (animated) movies or 3D models (collectively, "Resource(s)"). However, as further discussed in the Yuify Platform Terms, in providing the Yuify Services, Wacom is merely providing a venue for users to connect and engage with other users; Wacom is not and will not become a party to any agreements or contracts, or any resulting disputes, between you and any other users relating to your use of the Yuify Services and/or a Resource.

For purposes of the Yuify Platform Terms, “you” and “your” means you as the user of the Yuify Services.

(a)  Are of legal age according to the requirements of their jurisdiction of residence;

(b)  Have their habitual residence in one of the countries listed to the Addendum A attached hereto;

 2.1  Access and Use 
 2.1.1  You may access and use the Yuify Services when and as available. Although we generally intend for the Yuify Services to be available on an uninterrupted basis, they will not always be available (e.g., during maintenance, changes, outages and for other reasons).

 2.1.2  The Yuify Services do not replace the need for you to maintain regular data backups or redundant data archives, including of your Resources and/or any Licenses (defined in the Section 2.4.1 below). While the Yuify Services may backup or create redundant data archives as part of its normal operations, the Yuify Services are not a data backup service. Accordingly, while Wacom may backup certain data as part of the Yuify Services’ normal operations and pursuant to Wacom’s general data archival policies, you agree to be responsible for any data backups and/or redundant data archives of your data. Section 5 of the Terms shall apply to Wacom’s obligation or liability under this section.

(b)  That the Resource, or your contribution to it, is and shall be your original work;

(c)  That you have all necessary rights, and will maintain all necessary rights, to register the Resource using the Yuify Services and to otherwise grant: (i) the rights granted by you to Wacom under the Yuify Platform Terms; and (ii) the rights granted by you to other users in and to the Resource by and through the Yuify Services, including pursuant to the License;

(d)  That the Resource is not subject to, and will not become subject to, any confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements with third parties;

(e)  That you have not granted to any third party, and will not grant to any third party, any right or interest in the Resource that would restrict your ability to register the Resource or otherwise conflict or contradict with: (i) the rights granted by you to Wacom under the Yuify Platform Terms; and (ii) the rights granted by you to other users in and to the Resource by and through the Yuify Services, including pursuant to the License;

(f)  That the Resource, the uploading or downloading of the resource, and the use of the Resource does not infringe or violate the privacy rights of any third parties;

(g)  That the Resource does not infringe, violate or misappropriate the intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights of any third party, including any personality rights or rights of publicity; and

(h)  That the Resource does not include pornography, glorification of violence, content harmful to minors, extremist political views, or any other illegal content, as determined by Wacom in its sole and absolute discretion.

You agree to promptly inform Wacom in writing if at any time the above representations and warranties are no longer true and correct. 

 2.2.3   Once registered, the registered Resource will be watermarked and published on the Yuify Services and will be associated with your Yuify Services profile. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, Wacom may refuse to register, or remove or no longer make available on the Yuify Services, any Resources that do not conform to the above representations or warranties, or otherwise breach or violate the Yuify Platform Terms, including Section 3 below. The foregoing remedies shall be in addition to Wacom’s other rights and/or remedies under the Yuify Platform Terms or otherwise at law or in equity.

 2.3.2  If you create a Project, you will be the Project owner, and you will have the right to establish the conditions under which other users may cooperate or work on the Project and/or pursuant to which the Resource may be licensed to other users or third parties (“Project Conditions”). You may establish such Project Conditions by using the available Project settings made available through the Yuify Services, or by requiring that other users agree to your conditions in order to work on the Project. As a Project owner, you represent and warrant that you are fully authorized by all other Project members:

(a)  To communicate with other users or third parties regarding the Project, including without limitation, to bind all Project members with respect to the Project;

(b)  To make legally binding statements towards other users or third parties in the name of the Project; and

(c)  To contract with other users or third parties regarding any Resources created in connection with the Project, including by granting the Licenses to third parties in and to the Resource.







2.3.3  You may also decide to join a Project that is created by another user as a Project member. In order to join certain Projects, you may need to be invited by another user, or otherwise be approved by another user. By joining a project, you accept and agree to be bound by the Project Conditions established by the Project owner for the Project.
