NFTWARDS provides its services (as described below) to you through this website, mobile applications (if any), SaaS Platform, and marketplace (the “Platform”), subject to the following Terms of Service (as amended from time to time, the “Terms”).

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF PLATFORM CAREFULLY, AS THEY CONTAIN AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AND OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES, AND OBLIGATIONS. THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE REQUIRES (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) THAT YOU SUBMIT CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST US TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION, AND FURTHER (1) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AGAINST NFTWARDS ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING, (2) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO SEEK RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND (3) YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST US RESOLVED BY A JURY OR IN A COURT OF LAW.

If we make changes to these Terms, we will provide notice of such changes, such as by sending an email notification, providing notice through the Service, or updating the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms. NFTWARDS shall not be responsible if you fail to receive the communication due to no email id, or incorrect email id provided by you or if you have not updated NFTWARDS of your change in the email id. By continuing to access or use the Service at any point after such update, you confirm your acceptance of the revised Terms and all of the terms incorporated therein by reference. We encourage you to review these Terms frequently to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions that apply when you access or use the Service. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, you are free to reject them, unfortunately, that means you will no longer get access to or use the Service.
The Service is an online platform through which anyone can launch their own NFT(s); store(s), marketplace(s), shop(s), or hub(s), which can be used by anyone to Mint, purchase or offer to purchase, and sell or offer for sale or auction of digital artwork as unique Non-Fungible Tokens (“NFTs”) collectively referred to as (“Items”) created on the one or more Blockchain networks utilized by NFTWARDS (each referred to as a “Blockchain Platform”) using smart contracts. You may only create a store or marketplace by registering on the platform & then only participate in the Minting or sale of any Item on the created store or marketplace, as described below. You acknowledge that NFTWARDS grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferrable, non-sublicensable (except to sub-Users registered via the Service), revocable, limited right to access and use the Service through the Platform, which shall be solely used in compliance with these Terms provided herein and to the extent permitted under applicable laws, rules, and regulations.
NFTWARDS offers a platform for creators, collectors, and sellers of digital assets and any products, services and/or benefits, whether digital or otherwise, to be furnished by or on behalf of sellers in connection with such sales. We are not a broker, or a financial institution, or a creditor, or a marketplace. NFTWARDS through its platform powered stores facilitates transactions between the buyer and seller in a peer-to-peer manner and should neither be considered a marketplace nor a party, directly or indirectly, to any agreement between the buyer and seller or otherwise between any Users of the Service.
NFTWARDS offers platform as a service or any other “as a service” form (together as “SaaS”), using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with prevailing industry standards.
You bear full responsibility for verifying the identity, legitimacy, and authenticity of User Content and Items you sell or market through the Services. Notwithstanding indicators and messages that suggest verification, NFTWARDS makes no claims and accepts no liability or responsibility about the identity, legitimacy, or authenticity of User Content and Items offered for sale on or through the platform.

Subject to these terms, NFTWARDS will process such payments and settle payments that are actually received by NFTWARDS, less any amounts owed to NFTWARDS, including taxes, fees, and other obligations. You agree that a payment received by NFTWARDS on your behalf satisfies the payor’s obligation to make payment to you, regardless of whether NFTWARDS actually settles such payment to you.
Ownership, Modifications and Rights of Third Parties
Certain features on NFTWARDS may be offered while still in “beta” form (“Beta Platforms”). NFTWARDS will utilize best efforts to identify the Beta Platforms by labeling on its Platform. By accepting these Terms or using the Beta Platforms, you understand and acknowledge that the Beta Platforms are being provided as a “Beta” version and made available on an “As Is” or “As Available” basis. The Beta Platforms may contain bugs, errors, and other problems.
YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS AND ALL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR USE OF THE BETA PLATFORMS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY INTERNET ACCESS FEES, BACK-UP EXPENSES, COSTS INCURRED FOR THE USE OF YOUR DEVICE AND PERIPHERALS, AND ANY DAMAGE TO ANY EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, INFORMATION, MONEY, CRYPTOCURRENCY, NFT OR DATA. NFTWARDS or its representatives shall not be responsible for any damage caused to your brand, reputation, revenue, and income because of the beta nature of the Platform. In addition, we are not obligated to provide any maintenance, technical, or other support for the Beta Platforms.
NFTWARDS will fix bugs on the Platforms within the following time frames: (a) “Critical Bug” will be addressed on the highest priority and will be fixed as soon as possible after NFTWARDS becomes aware of such bug through bug automatic reporting process; (b) “other Bugs” will be fixed within a reasonable timeframe (given the nature of the bug) after NFTWARDS becomes aware of such bug.
You will inform NFTWARDS about presence of a bug as soon as you become aware by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or raising a support ticket from your store dashboard. Only a reporting of presence of bug or a support ticket generated through this designated channel shall be considered valid.
After receiving the e-mail or support ticket, NFTWARDS will fix the bug within reasonable timeframe in accordance with the foregoing. NFTWARDS reserves the right to decide the nature of the bugs and will accordingly set order of priority to fix the bug. You agree to adhere to NFTWARDS’s process of reporting and fixing the bug.
Any bug reported outside email or support ticket will not be considered as a reported bug.
NFTWARDS respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our Users to do the same. NFTWARDS will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement. A notification of claimed copyright infringement should be emailed to NFTWARDS’s Copyright Agent email@example.com (Subject line: “DMCA Takedown Request”).
If you believe your User Content that was removed due to any takedown request (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to upload and use the content in your User Content, you may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, NFTWARDS will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or User, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
Repeat Infringer Policy. In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, NFTWARDS has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at NFTWARDS’s sole discretion, Users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. NFTWARDS may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Platform and/or terminate the memberships of any Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
You expressly agree to refund to the Collector and/or NFTWARDS the entire portion of Fees received from the sale of an Item that was subsequently removed from the Site pursuant to an effective DMCA request to which you failed to timely submit an effective DMCA Counter notification. NFTWARDS 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.
You expressly agree to cooperate and timely respond to NFTWARDS’s investigations, requests, and inquiries related to DMCA disputes or allegations of infringement. You agree to initiate a “burn” transaction upon NFTWARDS’s request for any Item that have been permanently removed from the NFTWARDS marketplace pursuant to a valid DMCA takedown request, or that are otherwise alleged to be infringing.
If NFTWARDS becomes aware of any possible violations by you of these Terms, NFTWARDS reserves the right to investigate such violations. If, as a result of the investigation, NFTWARDS believes that criminal activity may have occurred, NFTWARDS reserves the right to refer the matter to, and to cooperate with, any and all applicable legal authorities. NFTWARDS is entitled, except to the extent prohibited by applicable law, to disclose any information or materials on or in the Service, including User Content and Item in NFTWARDS’s possession in connection with your use of the Service, to (i) comply with applicable laws, legal process or governmental request; (ii) enforce these Terms, (iii) respond to any claims that User Content or Item violates the rights of third parties, (iv) respond to your requests for User support service, or (v) protect the rights, property or personal safety of NFTWARDS, its Users, or the public, and all law enforcement or other government officials, as NFTWARDS in its sole discretion believes to be necessary or appropriate. By agreeing to these Terms, you hereby provide your irrevocable consent to such monitoring.

You hereby release and forever discharge NFTWARDS and our officers, employees, agents, successors, and assigns (the “NFTWARDS Entities”) from, and hereby waive and relinquish, each and every past, present and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage), that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or that relates directly or indirectly to, the Service (including any interactions with, or act or omission of, other Users or any Third-Party Properties or Third-Party Applications). If there is a dispute between participants on the Platform, or between Users and any third party, you agree that NFTWARDS is under no obligation to become involved.

PLEASE READ THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT IN THIS SECTION (“ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”) CAREFULLY. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that all claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with these Terms or the use of any Service provided by NFTWARDS that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed to, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and NFTWARDS, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized Users or beneficiaries of Services or goods provided under these Terms.
Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution. Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written notice describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and the requested relief (“Notice of Dispute”). A Notice of Dispute to NFTWARDS should be sent to: NFTWARDS, 3790 El Camino Real Unit #590 Palo Alto, CA 94306. After the Notice of Dispute is received, you and NFTWARDS may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and NFTWARDS do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice of Dispute is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.
Arbitration Rules. Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with these Terms. The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (“Arbitration Rules”) governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Five Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $5,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Five Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $5,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. Any hearing will be held in a location within 100 miles of your residence, unless you reside outside of the United States, and unless the parties agree otherwise. If you reside outside of the U.S., the arbitrator shall give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time, and place of any oral hearings. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the arbitrator grants you an award that is greater than the last settlement offers that NFTWARDS made to you prior to the initiation of arbitration, NFTWARDS will pay you the greater of the award or $2,500.00. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney’s fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider.
Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance-based arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
Time Limits. If you or NFTWARDS pursues arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.
Authority of Arbitrator. If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and NFTWARDS, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (i) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement; and (ii) 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; and shall also have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The exceptions to the preceding sentence are (1) all disputes arising out of or relating to the class action waiver, including any claim that all or part of the class action waiver is unenforceable, illegal, void or voidable, or such class action waiver has been breached, shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; (2) all disputes arising out of or relating to the payment of arbitration fees shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator; and (3) all disputes arising out of or relating to whether either party has satisfied any condition precedent to arbitration shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. 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 AAA Rules, and these Terms. 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 NFTWARDS. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient, and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and NFTWARDS in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND NFTWARDS WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge.
Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the courts of USA. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
Severability. If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, 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.
Right to opt Out. You have the right to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Such notice must be given within 30 days after first becoming subject to a version of these Terms containing an arbitration provision. Your notice must include your name and address, your Account username (if any), NFT store or marketplace URL, the email address & wallet 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 arbitration, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of arbitration has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter into in the future, with us.
Right to Waive. Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Arbitration Agreement may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Arbitration Agreement.
Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with NFTWARDS.
Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or NFTWARDS may bring an individual action in small claims court.
Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secrets shall not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement.
Courts. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within USA, for such purpose.
