In particular, access to any and all inventory information, information regarding the status of orders, account information, order placement services and product advertising images may be used only by current Yokohama dealers.

Registration

Use of the Product Registration portions of the Site is available to persons who have purchased Yokohama products at an authorized Yokohama dealer ("Product Registrants"). Registration of your Yokohama product on the Site provides Yokohama with a method to contact You in the event it becomes necessary for Yokohama to provide important warranty or other information. For security reasons, make sure that You exit from any activities on the Site at the end of each of Your uses of the Site.

Use of the Dealer Services portions of the Site is only available to dealers of Yokohama products that have become registered users ("Dealers") of the Site. You may choose to become a Dealer with the Site to facilitate Your access to the interactive features on the Site. Registration provides You with access to inventory information, information regarding the status of orders, account information and order placement services. Limited access to information on the Site may be granted by Dealer to his or her employees or staff members. Additional features and information access may be added to the Site in the future for access by Dealers only. Previously registered Dealers will not be required to re-register with the Site in order to use the new features and information access.

To become a Dealer You must register to use the site via phone, email, fax, or other means.

By registering, You represent and warrant (a) that You are 18 years of age or over, and (b) (i) You are personally signing up as a Dealer, or (ii) that You are signing up as a Dealer on behalf of an entity You have identified in the registration information and are authorized to sign for and bind that entity; and (c) the registration information is current, complete, and accurate. Dealer must update registration information to ensure that it continues to be current, complete, and accurate. Yokohama reserves the right to accept or reject Dealer registration for the Site. The Site may also display entity names as part of the registration process to facilitate an individual registrant's affiliation with the correct entity. You hereby consent to such a use.

Upon acceptance of Dealer's registration, Yokohama shall provide to Dealer a username and password. Upon Dealer's receipt of that username and password, Yokohama authorizes Dealer to access and use the Site subject to these Terms of Use.

It is the responsibility of Dealer to maintain the confidentiality of the username and password. Dealer is responsible for all activity that occurs on Dealer's username and password. Dealer may allow additional employees within Dealer's organization to become additional users under Dealer's account. Dealer will be solely responsible for the activities of these additional users. Dealer must also be aware that these additional users will have full access to all information under Dealer's username and password and may be able to modify the contents of that account, unless such access is limited by Dealer. You agree to notify Yokohama immediately of any unauthorized use of Your username or password and that You will, for security reasons, make sure that You exit from any activities on the Site at the end of each of Your uses of the Site.
