(a) For purposes of this Agreement:
(i) “NFT” means (i) an Ethereum-based token complying with the ERC-721 standard, ERC-1155 standard or other similar “non-fungible” token standard or (ii) a cryptographic token on another blockchain network complying with such similar “non-fungible” token standard. NFTs are intended to be “non-fungible” tokens representing a unique Collectible; however, certain NFTs may be fungible with one another (i.e., all such NFTs are associated with the same Collectible Metadata) while being non-fungible with other NFTs (i.e., such NFTs are associated with different Collectible Metadata); and
(ii) “Collectible” means the association on Ethereum or other blockchain networks, as applicable, of an NFT with a Uniform Resource Identifier (“URI”) identifying an appropriately configured JSON file conforming to the ERC-721 Metadata JSON Schema, ERC-1155 Metadata URI JSON Schema or a similar JSON schema, as applicable (such JSON file, the “Collectible ID”).
(b) The Collectible ID of a Collectible specifies the properties of the Collectible, including the name and description of the Collectible(the “Collectible Descriptors”), a URI identifying any image file associated with the Collectible (the “Collectible Image”) and potentially other metadata associated with the Collectible (the Collectible Descriptors, Collectible Image and such other metadata, collectively, the “Collectible Metadata”). The Collectible Metadata for Collectibles created through the Services may be stored in the InterPlanetary File System protocol (“IPFS”)or other ways, depending on how such Collectibles were created.
(c) You acknowledge and agree that (i) there can be no guarantee or assurance of the uniqueness, originality, or quality of any Collectible or Collectible Metadata and (ii) in the absence of an express legal agreement between the creator of a Collectible and purchasers of the Collectible, there cannot be any guarantee or assurance that the purchase or holding of the Collectible confers any license to or ownership of the Collectible Metadata or other intellectual property associated with the Collectible or any other right or entitlement, notwithstanding that such purchaser may rightfully own or possess the NFT associated with the Collectible.
(d) We may from time to time restrict the creation of Collectibles through the Services in our sole and absolute discretion, including in connection with any belief by us that such Collectible violates this Agreement.
(a) Compensation. Certain features of the Services may require you to pay fees. For Services that require payment, you will pay the amounts specified in each invoice or subscription issued by us. You must make payments in advance, unless the applicable invoice or subscription contains payment terms that are different. Unless otherwise specified in the invoice or subscription, unpaid amounts are subject to interest equal to the lower of (i) 2.0% per month (24% per annum) or (ii) the maximum permitted by applicable laws, on any outstanding balance, plus all expenses of collection. and may result in immediate termination and/or cancellation of your access to or use of the Software and/or the Services. You will be responsible for all taxes associated with the Services other than taxes based on our net income. Your access to and/or use of the Services may be terminated or cancelled without notice for any unpaid and due amount. We reserve the right to impose a reconnection fee in the event you are suspended and thereafter request access to the Services. Unless otherwise specified in the invoice or subscription, all amounts under this Agreement are payable in US dollars. Any amounts paid by you are non-refundable.
(b) Compensation Collection. Payment processing services for paid Services may be provided by a payment processor. If such payment processing services are used you agree you are subject to the applicable payment processor services agreement. By agreeing to the Agreement or continuing to use the Services, you agree to be bound by such payment processor services agreement, as it may be modified by the payment processor from time to time.
(c) Changes to Fees. Subject to your agreement to pay additional amounts, incremental fees may be charged where new or additional functions are added or become available to you.
(d) Gas Fees. Except as described below, every transaction that interacts with a blockchain protocol through the Services requires the payment of a transaction fee (also known as a “gas fee”),including without limitation minting or transferring NFTs. You will be solely responsible for paying any transaction fees for any transaction you initiate through the Services. NFT gating and verification checks have no transaction costs or gas fees to verify its ownership.
(e) Gift and Promotional Codes. We or our partners may offer gift and promotional codes to users of the Services. Certain codes may be redeemed for gift or promotional credits applied to your account, which then may be used to purchase eligible content on our platform, subject to the terms included with your codes.

To assure such compliance, we and/or our auditors may inspect, both while this Agreement remains in effect and for a period of 2 years thereafter, such records from time-to-time. Any such audits shall be conducted during regular business hours and shall not interfere unreasonably with your normal activities. If an audit reveals that you, or an Authorized User, has not complied with the obligations of this Agreement, you may be required to pay our reasonable costs of conducting the audit.

During the term of this Agreement and following termination or expiry of the Agreement, you will keep confidential and not reveal or disclose to any third party any such Confidential Information. You will be directly liable for the acts or omissions of your Authorized Users and other authorized parties with respect to such confidentiality obligations. You agree to protect the Confidential Information with the same standard of care and procedures which you use to protect your own trade secrets, proprietary information and other confidential information and, in any case, not less than a reasonable standard of care.

12. No Warranty
The Services are provided on an “as is”, “as available” and “with all faults” basis. Use of the Services is at your own risk. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, the Services are provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from a Company Party or through the Services will create any warranty not expressly stated herein. Without limiting the foregoing, the Company Parties do not warrant that (a) the Content is accurate, reliable or correct, (b) the Services will meet your requirements (c)the Services will be available at any particular time or location, uninterrupted or secure, (d) any defects or errors will be corrected or (e) the Services are free of viruses or other harmful components. Any Content downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the Services is downloaded at your own risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or mobile device or loss of data that results from such download or your use of the Services. You acknowledge and agree that you have not relied on any representation, warranty, condition, covenant or promise made by us which has not been expressly stated in this Agreement.
You acknowledge and agree that:
(a) Assumption of Risk. We do not warrant that the Services are error free. You expressly agree that you assume all risk in connection with your access and use of the Services;
(b) Asset Value and Volatility. The prices of NFTs may be extremely volatile and subjective. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of NFTs, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. Each NFT has no inherent or intrinsic value. We cannot guarantee that any NFT created and purchased will retain their original value, as the value of collectibles is inherently subjective and factors occurring outside of the Services may materially impact the value and desirability of any particular NFT. The fiat-denominated prices and value in public markets of assets such as cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and Collectibles have historically been subject to dramatic fluctuations and are highly volatile. As relatively new products and technologies, blockchain-based assets are not widely accepted as a means of payment for goods and services. A significant portion of demand for these assets is generated by speculators and investors seeking to profit from the short- or long-term holding of blockchain assets. The market value of any cryptocurrency, NFT, or Collectible may decline below the price for which you acquire or generate such asset. You acknowledge and agree that the costs and speeds of transacting with cryptographic and blockchain-based systems such as Ethereum are variable and may increase or decrease dramatically at any time, resulting in prolonged inability to access or use any cryptocurrencies, NFTs, Collectibles or other digital assets;
(c) Tax Calculations. You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your NFT-related transactions. We are not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions on the Services;
(d) Use of Blockchain Technology. We use experimental cryptographic technologies and blockchain technologies, including tokens, cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, “smart contracts,” consensus algorithms, voting systems, and distributed, decentralized or peer-to-peer networks or systems in performing the Services. You acknowledge and agree that such technologies are novel, experimental, and speculative and that therefore there is significant uncertainty regarding the operation and effects and risks there of and the application of existing law thereto. The Services do not store NFTs. This is because NFTs exists only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the Services’ supporting blockchain. Any transfer of an NFT occurs within the supporting blockchain, and not on the Services;
(e) Certain Risks of Blockchain Technology. The technology used in delivering the Services depends on public peer-to-peer networks such as Ethereum that are not under our control or influence and are subject to many risks and uncertainties. You are solely responsible for the safekeeping of your private key associated with the digital wallet used in connection with your use of the Services and we will not be responsible in respect of any lost private keys;
(f) Certain Risks of Smart Contract Technology. Digital assets relevant to the Services (including the Collectibles) depend on smart contracts deployed to Ethereum or other blockchain networks, some of which may be coded or deployed by persons other than us. Once deployed to Ethereum or other applicable blockchain networks, the code of the smart contracts cannot be modified. If such smart contracts are adversely affected by malfunctions, bugs, defects, malfunctions, hacking, theft, attacks, negligent coding or design choices, or changes to the protocol rules of Ethereum or other applicable blockchain networks, you may be exposed to a risk of total loss and forfeiture of all Collectibles and other relevant digital assets. You acknowledge and agree that we assume no liability or responsibility for any of the foregoing matters, except as otherwise expressly provided by this Agreement or required by applicable law;
(g) Inherent Risks with Internet Currency. There are risks associated with using an Internet-based currency, including, but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software, and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your electronic wallet. You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions, or delays you may experience when using the Services, however, caused;
(h) Regulatory Uncertainty. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and NFTs is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Services, and therefore the potential utility or value of your NFTs. Blockchain technologies and digital assets are subject to many legal and regulatory uncertainties, and the NFTs, the Collectibles, and the Services could be adversely impacted by one or more regulatory or legal inquiries, actions, suits, investigations, claims, fines, or judgments, which could impede or limit your ability to continue the use and enjoyment of such assets and technologies and Services;
(i) Software Risks. Upgrades to third party applications may affect the stability of the Services, or a change in how transactions are confirmed or recorded may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using such technology providers, including the Services;
(j) Cryptographic Risks. Cryptography is a progressing field and advances in code cracking or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers may present risks to cryptographic systems and the Services, which could result in the theft or loss of your assets. By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree to these inherent risks;
(k) Essential Third-Party Software Dependencies. The smart contracts deployed to Ethereum and other blockchain networks are public software utilities which are accessible directly through any Ethereum or other blockchain node or indirectly through any compatible blockchain “wallet” application (such as the web browser plugin Metamask) which interacts with such a node. Such software constitutes an essential third-party or user dependency without which the Services cannot be utilized and NFTs, Collectibles and other relevant digital assets cannot be created, transferred or used. Furthermore, Collectible Descriptors defining the art and text associated with a Collectible must be stored off of Ethereum or other applicable blockchain network, such asI PFS. We are not associated with IPFS in any manner and as such do not guarantee continued operation or the integrity and persistence of data on IPFS; and
(l) Disclaimers. None of the Company Parties will have any responsibilities or liability with respect to any of the foregoing disclaimers and risks.
14. Limitation of Liability
You also agree that to the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, in no event shall any Company Party be liable for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, business interruption, trading losses, transaction losses, economic losses or other intangible losses of any kind or nature whatsoever suffered by you or any third party howsoever caused (including without limitation arising out of or relating to the use of, or inability to use, the Services) and regardless of the form or cause of action, even if such damages are foreseeable or the Company Party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Under no circumstances will any Company Party be responsible for any damage, loss or injury resulting from hacking, tampering or other unauthorized access or use of the Services or the information contained therein or the Content.

In the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these terms and conditions shall otherwise remain in full force and effect.
