Welcome to the wbcgear.com website. The following describes the terms under which we provide the wbcgear.com website and WBC service (the “Service”) to you.

If you do not agree to the change(s), you must immediately stop using the Service; otherwise, the new terms will apply to you. As long as you comply with this Agreement, we grant you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-sublicensable right to access and use the Service as it is intended to be accessed and used and in accordance with this Agreement and applicable law.
