I see a comma splice; they need to change that last comma to a
semicolon.[1]

Other than that, there is nothing objectionable about this language.

However, the requirement of a click-through license acceptance ceremony

unclear.

[1] Yes, it's a minor point, but poor grammar degrades clarity.  One
wants clarity in legal language even more than in regular conversation.
