The Options section of the User Area allows you to view and edit your personal data and login details, change your settings and manage your subprofiles.
Click on the Options tab in the left-hand side menu of your User Area to access this section.
The Options area is represented by icon
There are four tabs in the Options section of the User Area.
- Login details
You can change your administrative email and your password.
The administrative email will be used to inform you when you receive new communications or when a new alert has been triggered. Your administrative email will also be used for the 'forgotten password' functionality.
The last three successful logins and the last three failed login attempts related to your account are listed at the bottom of the page.
Report suspicious activity
If you want to report any suspicious activity, for example login attempts from an unknown source, you can do so via the link at the bottom of the page.
- Personal details
You can change your name and address, correspondence address and contact information.
Any changes you make here will apply to all EUTM/RCD proceedings that are being conducted under the same EUIPO ID number.
Modifying your name and/or address will trigger an entry in the Register (recordal) that will be processed by EUIPO. However, if you would like to register the change in ownership of a particular trade mark or design, you must submit a request to register a transfer.
Your phone number, fax number and email address are no longer available and searchable via eSearch plus and TMview/ DesignView, unless you give us your express consent. You can now also unsubscribe from receiving IP-related information from the Office (e.g. news and invitations to workshops, events, conferences and seminars).
You can change your settings by going here (make sure you are logged in to your user account), selecting ‘personal details’ and ticking the relevant boxes at the bottom of the page.
If you do not have a user account, you can create one by signing up here.
For more information please read the new conditions of use for the user area, available here.
In the 'Settings' tab you can choose how the Office will communicate with you. You can choose to receive official communications in your User Area or by fax/post.
If you select the option 'Via my EUIPO User Area', you can also choose to receive an email notification that a communication has been received.
If you select the option 'fax or post', we will send your communications by fax by default. If you did not provide us with a fax number when you registered for your account, we will send your communications by post.
The default language for receiving communications can be changed via the dropdown list. Choose from one of 23 EU languages. However, official communications relating to a specific file will be sent in the language of proceedings corresponding to that file.
Your EUIPO User Area account allows you to access a range of IP services that are not available to non-registered users. These advantages include the option of creating subprofiles for company employees or members of an association. The subprofiles you create will have certain access rights to the information stored in your User Area.
To add a subprofile click on the 'Add subprofile' button at the right-hand corner of the 'Subprofiles' tab. A form will open in another window; the fields are empty by default.
The form shows the access options for each subprofile user. The access options are set to 'yes' by default. You can edit subprofiles by clicking on the pen icon in the 'Edit' column.
