Purchaser(s)/Collector(s) : This Crypto Asset is a limited-edition digital creation. Collectors receive a cryptographic token representing the Creator's Crypto Assets as a piece of property, but do not own the creative work itself. Collectors may display and share the Crypto Assets, but Collectors do not have any legal ownership, right, or title to any copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights to the Digital Assets, excepting the limited license to the Crypto Assets granted by these Terms. Upon collecting Crypto Assets, Collectors receive a limited, worldwide, non-assignable, non-sublicensable, royalty-free license to display the Digital Assets legally owned and properly obtained by the Collector for non-commercial purposes.

YOU WAIVE AND HOLD HARMLESS MAKERSPLACE AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, LICENSEES, AND SERVICE PROVIDERS, FROM ANY CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES DURING OR TAKEN AS A CONSEQUENCE OF, INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER SUCH PARTIES OR LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.

MakersPlace shall have the right in its sole discretion to edit, refuse to post or remove any material submitted to or posted through the Offerings.

USER CONDUCT

When using the Site, no User is allowed to:

  • Violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, or any regulations having the force of law, including but not limited to the U.S. Department of Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC"), or which would involve proceeds of any unlawful activity;

  • Use data collected from our Site to contact individuals, companies, or other persons or entities, including without limitation for any direct marketing activities;

  • Manipulate the price of any item (e.g., Crypto Asset) in an Auction, including without limitation, engaging in any coercive, deceptive, and/or manipulative behavior concerning an Auction, including using coercive, deceptive, and/or manipulative bidding tactics, or interfere with any other user's Auction, listing, or profile;

  • Access or use the Site for the purpose of creating a product or service that is competitive with any of our products or services

ASSUMPTION OF RISK

You accept and acknowledge:

  • The prices of blockchain assets are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the Crypto Assets, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot guarantee that any purchasers of Crypto Assets will not lose money.

  • You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your Crypto Assets transactions. Neither MakersPlace nor any other MakersPlace Party is responsible for determining the taxes that apply to Crypto Assets transactions.

  • Our Site does not store, send, or receive Crypto Assets. This is because Crypto Assets exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on its supporting blockchain. Any transfer of Crypto Assets occurs within the supporting blockchain and not on this Site.

  • 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 wallet. You accept and acknowledge that MakersPlace will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Crypto Assets, however caused.

  • A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of the Ethereum Ecosystem and therefore the potential utility or value of Crypto Assets.

  • The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Auction and/or Site and the utility of Crypto Assets.

  • The Site will rely on third-party platforms such as MetaMask to perform the transactions for the Auction of Crypto Assets. If we are unable to maintain a good relationship with such platform providers; if the terms and conditions or pricing of such platform providers change; if we violate or cannot comply with the terms and conditions of such platforms; or if any of such platforms loses market share or falls out of favor or is unavailable for a prolonged period of time, access to and use of the Site will suffer.

  • Users hereby acknowledge and assume the risk of initiating, interacting with, participating in the Site or Auction transactions and take full responsibility and liability for the outcome of any transaction they initiate, whether or not the smart contracts, the Site, or other market participants behave as expected or intended. Users hereby represent that they are knowledgeable, experienced and sophisticated in using blockchain technology, the Site, and in initiating Ethereum-based transactions.

THIRD-PARTY CONTENT POLICY & COMPLIANT PROCEDURES

Third-Party Content Policy . As a matter of policy, we do not tolerate any User Materials posted to the Site that, in our sole discretion: infringes intellectual property rights; violates United States law; constitutes child pornography; or is obscene or defamatory. We intend to, in good faith, remove, disable or restrict access to, or the availability of, User Materials that, in our sole discretion, we deem infringing, racist, obscene, obscene as to minors, child pornography, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable. The provisions of this section are intended to implement this policy but are not intended to impose a contractual obligation on us to undertake or refrain from any particular course of conduct.

Third-Party Content Complaints . If you believe that someone has posted User Materials that violates this policy (other than in cases of copyright infringement, which is addressed separately below), we ask you to promptly notify us by email at the following address: [email protected] You must use this address if you want to ensure that your complaint is actually received by the appropriate person charged with investigating alleged policy violations.

In order to allow us to respond effectively, please provide us with as much detail as possible, including: (1) the nature of the right infringed or violated (including the registration numbers of any registered trademarks or patents allegedly infringed); (2) all facts which lead you to believe that a right has been violated or infringed; (3) the precise location where the offending User Materials can be found; (4) any grounds to believe that the person who posted the User Materials was not authorized to do so or did not have a valid defense (including the defense of fair use); and (5) if known, the identity of the person or persons who posted the infringing or offending User Materials.

By lodging a complaint, you agree that the substance of your complaint shall be deemed to constitute a representation made under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of Delaware. In addition, you agree, at your own expense, to defend and indemnify us and hold us harmless against all claims which may be asserted against us, and all losses incurred, as a result of your complaint and/or our response to it.

We expect visitors to take responsibility for their own actions and cannot assume liability for any acts of third-parties which take place on the MakersPlace site. You waive any and all claims or remedies that you might otherwise be able to assert against us under any theory of law (including, without limitation, intellectual property laws) that arise out of or relate in any way to the User Materials at the site or our response, or failure to respond, to a complaint.

You agree that we have the right (but not the obligation) to investigate any complaint received. By reserving this right, we do not undertake any responsibility in fact to investigate complaints or to remove, disable or restrict access to or the availability of User Materials. We support free speech on the Internet and therefore will not act on complaints that we believe, in our subjective judgment, to be deficient. If you believe that User Materials remain on the site that violate your rights, your sole remedy shall be against the person(s) responsible for posting or storing it, not against us.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") Compliance . Pursuant to Title II of the DMCA, all claims alleging copyright infringement for material that you believe to be residing on the site, system or network should be promptly sent in the form of written notice to our designated agent:

MakersPlace
c/o Designated Agent for DMCA Notices
PO Box 2006
San Francisco, CA 94126
Email: [email protected]

(the "DMCA Agent"). You may not send other notices or communications to the DMCA Agent, who is appointed solely for the purpose of receiving notices of claims alleging copyright infringement under the DMCA.

Filing a DMCA Notice . Specific requirements for proper notification of claimed infringement are set forth in the DMCA (see 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3)). Valid notification must be a written communication that includes all of the following elements:

  • a physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner;

  • a clear identification of the copyrighted work that is claimed to be infringing;

  • Identification of the material claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;

  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party (address, phone number and, if available, email address);

  • A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right allegedly being infringed.

Official DMCA Notices must provide all the information described above in order to be effective. If your DMCA Notice is ineffective, we may ignore it and have no obligation to remove the allegedly infringing content.

Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that Content or an activity is infringing or that any material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, shall be liable to us and possibly others for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees incurred by us in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing or in replacing the removed material or enabling access to it.

Filing a DMCA Counter-Notification . If a notice of alleged copyright infringement under the DMCA has been wrongly filed against you, you may submit a counter-notification to our DMCA Agent. Specific requirements for a proper counter-notification are set forth in the DMCA (see 17 U.S.C. § 512(g)(3)). A valid counter-notification must be a written communication that includes all of the following elements:

  • The User's name, address, telephone number, and email address;

  • A physical or electronic signature;

  • Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

  • The following statement: "I swear, UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY, that I have a good-faith belief that the material was removed or disabled due to a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled"; and

  • A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the U.S., for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the complainant.

Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, we will forward it to the original complainant who submitted the DMCA notice alleging copyright infringement. The original complainant will then have ten days to notify us that it has filed a lawsuit relating to the allegedly infringing material otherwise we will restore the removed material or cease disabling access to it.

Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing or that any material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, shall be liable to us for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees incurred by us in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing or in replacing the removed material or enabling access to it.

Removal of Content : As discussed throughout this Agreement, MakersPlace reserves the right to remove any Content or Crypto Assets that allegedly infringes another person's copyright or trademark rights, thereby restricting access to or visibility of the Work on the Site and restricting the ability to sell, access, or view the Crypto Assets on the Marketplace. All transactions involving MakersPlace are conducted with the knowledge and assumption of the risk that the Crypto Assets may subsequently be removed from the Site as a consequence of a DMCA dispute or a User's violation of these Terms. MakersPlace shall not be liable to a Collector or Creator of a Crypto Asset that was subsequently taken down by MakersPlace pursuant to a valid DMCA Take-Down Notice or a determination of a User's violation of these Terms.

Repeat Infringer Policy . In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, MakersPlace has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at MakersPlace's sole discretion, Users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. MakersPlace may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Site and/or terminate the memberships of any Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.

Cooperation with MakersPlace in Connection with DMCA Takedown : Creators expressly agree to refund to the Collector and/or MakersPlace the entire portion of Fees received from the sale of a Crypto Assets that was subsequently removed from the Site pursuant to an effective DMCA request to which the Creator failed to timely submit an effective DMCA Counter notification. MakersPlace will not be held liable to any User for removing allegedly infringing works from the Platform or otherwise fulfilling its legal obligations under the DMCA.

Creators, Collectors, and all Users expressly agree to cooperate and timely respond to MakersPlace's investigations, requests, and inquiries related to DMCA disputes or allegations of infringement.

Users irrevocably release, acquit, and forever discharge MakersPlace and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, and successors of any liability for royalties, fines, or fees not received from any off-market transaction.

All transactions on MakersPlace, including without limitation, minting, tokenizing, bidding, listing, offering, purchasing, or confirming, are facilitated by smart contracts existing on various blockchain networks including, but not limited to Ethereum. The Ethereum network requires the payment of a transaction fee (a "Gas fee") for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network, and thus every transaction occurring on MakersPlace. The value of the Gas Fee changes, often unpredictably, and is entirely outside of the control of MakersPlace. The User acknowledges that under no circumstances will a contract, agreement, offer, sale, bid, or other transaction on MakersPlace be invalidated, revocable, retractable, or otherwise unenforceable on the basis that the Gas Fee for the given transaction was unknown, too high, or otherwise unacceptable.

The User consents to the automated collection and disbursement to Creator(s) of royalties for Secondary Market sales of MakersPlace Items. The User hereby waives any first sale defense or argument with respect to Secondary Market activities resulting in royalty to a MakersPlace Artist.

Users acknowledge and consent to the risk that the price of an Item purchased on the MakersPlace marketplace may have been influenced by User activity outside of the control of MakersPlace or the Site. MakersPlace does not represent, guarantee, or warrant the accuracy or fairness of the price of any Crypto Asset sold or offered for sale on or off of the Site. The User agrees and acknowledges that MakersPlace is not a fiduciary nor owes any duties to any User of the platform, including the duty to ensure fair pricing of Crypto Assets or to police User behavior on the Marketplace.

Taxes . Users are responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added and other taxes, duties, and assessments now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority, associated with your use of MakersPlace (including, without limitation, any taxes that may become payable as the result of your ownership, transfer, purchase, sale, or creation of any Assets).

You represent that you have sufficient knowledge, market sophistication, professional advice, and experience to make your own evaluation of the merits and risks of any transaction conducted via the Site or any underlying digital asset. You accept all consequences of using the Site, including the risk that you may lose access to your digital assets indefinitely. All transaction decisions are made solely by you. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement, we accept no responsibility whatsoever for and will in no circumstances be liable to you in connection with the use of the Site for performing digital asset transactions. Under no circumstances will the operation of all or any portion of the Site be deemed to create a relationship that includes the provision or tendering of investment advice.

MODIFICATIONS TO THE SITE

We reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Sites (or any features or parts thereof) or suspend or discontinue the Auction at any time and without liability therefor.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION; ARBITRATION. DISPUTE RESOLUTION.

Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section ("Arbitration Agreement") carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with MakersPlace and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

Applicability of Arbitration Agreement . You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Site, to any products sold or distributed through the Site, or to any aspect of your relationship with MakersPlace will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or MakersPlace may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).

Arbitration Rules and Forum . The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent [include name and address of registered agent here]. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys' fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS's most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/ ; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS's most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/ . JAMS's rules are also available at jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS's filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, MakersPlace will pay them for you. In addition, MakersPlace will reimburse all such JAMS's filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Authority of Arbitrator . The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and MakersPlace. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum's rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.

Waiver of Jury Trial . YOU AND MAKERSPLACE HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and MakersPlace are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in the section above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.

Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief . ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A OR COLLECTIVE CLASS BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any part of this subsection's limitations as to a given claim for relief, then that claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought in the state or federal courts located in the State of Delaware. All other claims shall be arbitrated.

30-Day Right to Opt Out . You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: Onchain Labs, Inc, 1150 Folsom St, #8, San Francisco, CA, 94103, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. You may also submit your decision to [email protected] Your notice must include your name and address, the email address you used to set up your account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.

Severability . Except as provided in herein, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

Survival of Agreement . This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with MakersPlace.

Modification .
