2. OUR SERVICES

2.1 Game Items. The Services provide access to the Game, through which you may be able to use and deploy Game-related items in the form of digital assets (collectively with other Game-related assets, attributes or characteristics, whether or not transferable or tradeable, “Game Items”). Certain Game Items may be non-transferable and non-tradable (including with respect to any Game NFTs associated with such Game Items) from your Digital Wallet or Account, as the case may be (“Non-Transferable Items”). Game Items can be used in the Services in various ways that we make available, such as to represent in-Game assets that you can use while you play the Game. We make no promises or guarantees regarding the functionality, utility or value of any Game Items, and such Game Items may evolve and change as we update and modify the Game. The Company does not guarantee that Game Items will be transferable to or have any utility in connection with any other platform.
2.2 Game NFTs. Users of the Services may be able to mint certain Game Items as NFTs on the Blockchains (“Game NFTs”). By minting a Game Item as an NFT, you agree to comply with any terms, including licences or payment terms that are embedded within or otherwise included with any such Game Item (“Game NFT Terms”). Your ownership of Game NFTs will give you certain rights and privileges within the Services, for as long as we make the Services and such rights and privileges available to you. You are responsible for all payments, fees, and costs when engaging in any transactions involving Game NFTs, including, without limitation, the purchase price, transaction fees, fees associated with your secondary or subsequent sales of Game NFTs (“Secondary Sale Fees”), and all other fees associated with your use of the Game NFTs via the Services.
2.3 Transacting in Game NFTs. All transactions regarding Game NFTs are managed and confirmed on the Blockchain. You understand that your Blockchain public address may be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction regarding any Game NFT. The Company is not and shall not be a party to any transaction or dispute between any initial minter of a Game NFT (other than any Game NFT that we mint) and any subsequent owner of such Game NFT (unless we are the owner of such Game NFT), whether arising from any rights granted in that Game NFT or otherwise, unless otherwise set forth in connection with such Game NFT.
2.4 Third-Party Marketplace. As at the date of these Terms of Service, the Services do not provide access to any in-Game marketplace for you to purchase, transfer and trade Game Items, and we do not directly sell any Game NFTs to users of the Services from us. However, through third-party exchanges and services, or other decentralised Smart Contract protocols (collectively, “Third-Party Marketplaces”), buyers and sellers can buy, sell and trade Game NFTs (other than Non-Transferable Items) with each other. We may charge a transaction fee on all transactions that involve Game NFTs. We do not own or control Third-Party Marketplaces, we do not control the transfer of cryptocurrency or digital assets, including Game NFTs, using these Third-Party Marketplaces, and we do not have the ability to cancel or reverse transactions via these Third-Party Marketplaces. Except as may otherwise be provided in these Terms of Service, we do not control or endorse purchases or sales of Game NFTs outside of the Services. We accept no liability for any aspect of the buyer and seller peer-to-peer interaction on the Third-Party Marketplaces.
2.5 Digital Wallets. To use certain of the Services, you need to link to the Services via a non-custodial digital wallet made available by one or more third parties, and that is compatible with the Ethereum network and the Services (each, a “Digital Wallet”). A list of supported wallets may be displayed by us, such as on the Website. Linking a Digital Wallet to the Services is required to be able to purchase, store, and engage in certain transactions using the Services, such as to connect your Game NFTs and tokens with the Services. We may not be able to help you recover assets associated with your Digital Wallet, as these are non-custodial wallets in your control. We do not own or control the assets associated with your Digital Wallet. We accept no responsibility or liability to you in connection with your use of a Digital Wallet and make no representations or warranties regarding how the Services will operate with any specific Digital Wallet. The private keys, credentials, passwords, seed phrases, or secret recovery passphrases necessary to decrypt or gain access to a Digital Wallet are held solely by you, and not by us. If you choose to transfer items from one Digital Wallet to another, such transfers will occur on the public Blockchain and we accept no liability or responsibility for any such transfer, including for any loss, data corruption, or other negative impact that may occur to your Digital Wallets or other assets when attempting to transfer assets between Digital Wallets. We reserve the right, with or without prior notice and in our sole and complete discretion, to discontinue, modify, or limit the operation of any Digital Wallet with the Services. You represent and warrant that you are the lawful owner of any Digital Wallet and that you are using that Digital Wallet under the terms and conditions of the applicable provider of the Digital Wallet. Digital Wallets are not associated with, maintained by, controlled by, or affiliated with us. If you have any issues with your Digital Wallet, please contact the applicable provider.
2.6 Consumptive Use. You acknowledge and affirm that you are acquiring Game Items, whether through the Third-Party Marketplace or otherwise through the Services, for purposes of use in connection with the Services and, in the case of the Game NFTs, to play the Game or for other collectible purposes, and in each case not for any investment or speculative purposes. Any economic benefit that may be derived from appreciation in the value of a Game Item (including any Game NFT) is incidental to obtaining it for its use in connection with the Services or its collectible purpose.
2.7 DISCLAIMERS WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICES. ANY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY OR ON BEHALF OF THE COMPANY ON ANY PLATFORM OR THROUGH THE SERVICES IS FOR INFORMATIONAL AND ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY AND SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED AS, NOR IS IT INTENDED AS, AN OFFER TO SELL, OR THE SOLICITATION OF AN OFFER TO BUY, ANY INTEREST IN ANY SECURITY, ENTITY, INVESTMENT VEHICLE OR CONTRACT, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WITH RESPECT TO GAME ITEMS.

3. ELIGIBILITY AND REGISTRATION

3.1 You must be at least 18 years old to use the Services. Though your linked Digital Wallet will function as a unique identifier for you in respect of your use of certain portions of the Services, we may additionally require you to register an account with us in order to use certain portions of the Services (to the extent applicable, your “Account”). To the extent that we require you to register for an Account, we will provide you with instructions on how to do so, and once registered, how to access, edit, and update your Account.

We may require additional information, documentation or clarification in respect of any application you make, and we reserve the right not to proceed with an application until we are satisfied it is in line with the Agreement. If you don’t provide us with the information we require, or if any of the information you provide is incomplete or inaccurate, your application may be rejected. If any of the information that you provide us in support of your application changes or becomes inaccurate, you must inform us in writing, and we may reconsider your registration status.
3.3 You are responsible for all activities conducted on your Account and you agree that you must:
3.3.1 keep your Account information (including login details and payment details) confidential and secure, and not provide any other person with access to your Account; and
3.3.2 promptly notify the Company if you suspect any unauthorised access to or use of your Account.
3.4 Without limiting its other rights and remedies, the Company reserves the right to block or deny access to, suspend or terminate your Account at any time in the Company’s absolute discretion, without giving any reason or prior notice and the Company shall not be liable or responsible for any claim, demand, action, proceeding, damage, liability, cost, loss or expense arising out of the same.

4.1 Subject to your compliance with these Terms, the Company hereby grants to you, a personal, limited, royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable and revocable licence to access and use the software provided to you as part of the Services (and, to the extent we offer you any software for download as part of the Services (such as the Game client), to download, install and execute a single copy of such software onto the equipment or device specified or approved by us). This license has the sole purpose of enabling you to enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided by us for your own personal, non-commercial use, in the manner permitted by these Terms. For the avoidance of doubt, you are not permitted to licence, sublicense or resell any of the Services. If you breach any obligation under the Agreement, the said licence will terminate automatically.

4.5 When you mint, purchase, acquire or otherwise receive a Game NFT, you own the Game NFT as a token on the Blockchain, but you do not own any Intellectual Property Rights in the related audiovisual assets, artwork, images for Game Items, and other Services-related content and content derived from the Services (“Services Content”) associated with such Game NFT except for the licence grants expressly set forth herein. If you lawfully acquire a Game NFT, then subject to your compliance with these Terms of Service, the Company hereby grants you a personal, limited, royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable and revocable licence to use, copy, and display the Services Content that is specifically associated with such Game NFT, and solely for the following purposes: (a) for your own non-commercial and not-for-profit use within or related to the Services and not otherwise in conflict with these Terms or any other Services-related policies (e.g., not to create and sell merchandise related to such Services Content); (b) as part of any Third-Party Marketplace that permits the purchase and sale of your Game NFTs, provided that such Third-Party Marketplace cryptographically verifies that only the actual owner can display the Services Content in connection with their sale of their Game NFT; or (c) as part of a third-party website or application that permits the display, inclusion, involvement, or participation of your Game NFT, provided that the website/application cryptographically verifies the ownership of the Game NFT to ensure that only the actual owner can display the Services Content, and provided that the Services Content is no longer visible once the owner of the Game NFT leaves the website or application. This licence only lasts as long as you are the valid owner and holder of the Game NFT associated with the licensed Services Content. If you sell or transfer the Game NFT to another person, this licence will transfer to such other owner or holder of the Game NFT, and you will no longer have the benefits of such licence. All rights not expressly granted are reserved.

5. FEES AND PAYMENT

5.1 All pricing and payment terms for Game Items (where applicable) are as indicated at point of sale or otherwise on the Services, and any payment obligations you incur are binding at the time of purchase. You may not substitute any other currency, whether cryptocurrency or fiat currency, for the currency in which you have contracted to pay at the time of purchase. For clarity, no fluctuation in the value of any currency, whether cryptocurrency or otherwise, shall impact or excuse your obligations with respect to any purchase. Whether a particular cryptocurrency is accepted as a payment method by the Company is subject to change at any time in the Company’s sole discretion.
5.2 When you purchase or otherwise acquire a Game NFT, you agree that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by any Game NFT Terms applicable to the sale of that Game NFT, including any Secondary Sale Fees (regardless of whether such Secondary Sale Fees are enforced or supported by the Blockchain or Third-Party Marketplace that facilitates a secondary sale of a Game NFT). You further agree that you will bind any subsequent purchaser of the Game NFT to such Game NFT Terms.
5.3 Each Blockchain may require the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on such Blockchain, such Gas Fee to be based on the structure and composition of such Blockchain. This means that you may need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the Services. Gas Fees may vary based on market conditions on the applicable Blockchain, and the Company shall have no liability to you in connection with the same.
5.4 You shall be responsible for all taxes arising under the Agreement, including, but not limited to, sales, use, gross receipts, excise value added, and goods and services taxes (but not including the Company’s income taxes), in addition to any duties, costs of compliance with export and import controls and regulations, and other governmental assessments, and, if applicable, withholding taxes.
