The Website includes a portal to access the Protocol and create Capsule NFTs and may also provide services as a “Marketplace” for Capsule NFTs or other Digital Assets (defined below). As such, the Website may function as an Online Service Provider under DMCA Title II, the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act ("OCILLA"), for facilitating communication between two sets of users: sellers and buyers. Sellers may market their sale of items and buyers may peruse and at their option, bid or buy the items. The actual contract for sale is between the seller and buyer. In these capacities, unless specifically disclosed by the Company, Company is not a party to any transaction (e.g., a seller, a traditional auctioneer, etc.). Any guidance Company provides as part of facilitating the Protocol, providing the Marketplace, or otherwise operating the Website, such as pricing, listing, and sourcing is for informational purposes only it is up to you to follow it or not. Company is not involved in how the Capsule NFTs (or other digital-based goods that may be used in the creation of the Capsule NFTs, like smart contracts, cryptocurrencies, artistic or other content, and other digital-based goods) (collectively, “Digital Assets”) are used. Company has no control over and disclaims all liability related to: the existence, accuracy, quality, safety or legality of items advertised or user content; the ability or legal standing of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that any user will complete a transaction or return an item. Some Digital Assets may relate or interface with distributed applications (“Dapps”) such as blockchains, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other distributed ledger-type technologies.
The Protocol is designed to allow users to mint Capsule™ NFTs, which through the technology can store other Digital Assets like tokens or NFTs within an NFT. Some Digital Assets sold on the Marketplace may include NFTs, including Capsule NFTs. When purchasing an NFT, you agree and understand what characteristics NFTs have and how the following terms apply to their sale. An NFT is a digital tool that can represent tangible and intangible property such as photographs, videos, writings, or music. NFTs are usually built using similar technology to cryptocurrencies and Dapps. But while cryptocurrencies are usually fungible, NFTs are not. Each NFT is coded into a blockchain, often Ethereum, and contains built-in authentication and proof of ownership and is often one-of-a-kind. When you buy an NFT, the terms of your purchase, and what you actually purchase and now own, may be limited by the terms or technology of the underlying Dapp comprising the NFT as well as any licenses or other agreements imposed by the owner of the NFT content. It is up to you to confirm your understanding of what you are buying. Company does not maintain control over any Dapp, such as those on Bitcoin or Ethereum. Therefore the ownership of, and any license or other rights transferred with, any purchased NFT is a matter between the seller and buyer and the applicable Dapp, and Company takes no responsibility with respect to such rights and obligations. When users use the Protocol, all licenses and all ownership interests in any Digital Assets which a user has remains with said user and does not pass to Company when users use the Protocol, Marketplace or the Website.
You further understand that some blockchain transactions may not be reversible. You understand that NFTs and other Digital Assets may only exist by virtue of the ownership record maintained in a respective Dapp, and further that smart contracts are conducted and occur on decentralized ledgers within such Dapps. Company has no control over and makes no guarantees or promises with respect to such smart contracts or the functioning of such Dapps. In cases where a transaction involving a Digital Asset is revealed to be fraudulent, or a buyer or seller acts fraudulently, then the defrauded buyer/seller shall have no recourse against Company, but solely against the respective seller/buyer.
Users minting NFTs through the Protocol agree to not use the Protocol with the intent to defraud persons.
When you use our services or send emails, text messages and other communications from your desktop or mobile device to us, you may be communicating with us electronically, you consent to receive communications from us electronically, such as emails, texts, mobile push notices, or notices and messages on this site, and you can retain copies of these communications for your records. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
To access and use the Website, including the Protocol and Marketplace (when available), you may be asked to provide login information, potentially including a username, email, and password (“Login Info”) and may include an Ethereum (or other blockchain’s) wallet address (“Wallet”) to access, fund or receive disbursements from your account. It is your sole responsibility to maintain the security of your Login Info and your Wallet. If you lose access to your Wallet, a private key, password, or other method of securing your Wallet, any funds may be irretrievable, and we will be unable to assist you in any way. You hereby irrevocably waive, release and discharge all claims, whether known or unknown to you, against us, our affiliates and their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives related to your use of any Wallet software, associated loss of funds, transaction failures, or any other defects that arise in the course of your use of your Wallet, including any losses that may obtain as a result of any failure in smart contracts made available on the Website, used in connection with the Protocol, or used in connection with your use of the Marketplace. You hereby accept responsibility for any activity on the Protocol interacting with your Wallet.
Additionally, you hereby irrevocably waive, release and discharge all claims, whether known or unknown to you, against us, our affiliates and their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, agents and representatives related to any defects that arise in the course of your use of your Login Info and account. By using the Protocol or the Marketplace, you agree to be fully, independently and personally liable for each action initiated on the Protocol or Marketplace by you, and you must make sure that you are the only person with access to your Login Info at all times. You hereby accept responsibility for any activity transacted on the Protocol or Marketplace through your account.
As part of using the Marketplace in connection with the Protocol, you may be given the option to “lazy mint” NFTs or other Digital Assets. In this process you provide data, code and other relevant materials to mint a Digital Asset to Company, temporarily hosted in a centralized database. Another user identifies an unminted Digital Asset that they desire to purchase. Upon confirmation that a user desires to purchase one of these Digital Assets, such purchasing user shall provide fees required to mint the Digital Asset they wish to purchase. The selling user waives all claims against Company for any potential destruction or damage to unminted Digital Assets due to technical error, malicious third parties, catastrophe or any other event causing the centralized database in which unminted Digital Assets are held prior to a sale to be damaged, destroyed, or stolen.
We will use commercially reasonable technical and physical safeguards to make the Protocol and the Marketplace securely available to its users. However, given the inherent risk of transmitting information over the internet, we will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Protocol or Marketplace is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Website, Protocol, Marketplace, or the entire Protocol and/or Marketplace, to users. You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Protocol and the Marketplace.
Fees for the use of the Protocol and Marketplace (if applicable) are located at the following link: https://capsulenft.gitbook.io/capsulenft/economics/fee-structure. Fees may be changed at any time in our sole discretion. Where applicable, you agree to have the Company receive payments on your behalf for deployment of Capsule™ NFT collections and the minting of NFTs and for items you sell using the Marketplace and manage settlement of those payments to you.
Users may pay for items using Ethereum through their connected wallet. Company may modify the type of payment methods available to you at its own discretion. To the extent you interact through the Protocol or the Marketplace with smart contracts, you acknowledge that such contracts are binding upon you and that the counterparty to the contract is a third-party participant, not Company. Any contract for the purchase of goods/services between buyer and seller is directly concluded by that buyer and seller, even if Company provides payment-related services to assist in concluding the purchase.
Users wishing to receive funds as part of any Marketplace transaction must have a financial account on file that is operable to receive funds. Financial accounts can include (depending on availability) blockchain addresses, and similar methods of receiving payment. Company may modify the type of financial accounts available to You at its own discretion.
To set up a financial account or payment method, you may be required to provide the Protocol or the Marketplace with all necessary information for the purposes of: verifying your identity, complying with applicable laws, managing settlements of your purchases, and assessing fraud and risk. For individuals, this information may include at least, your full name, address, phone number, date of birth, taxpayer identification number, bank account information, and a form of government-issued identification. For businesses, this information may include, at least, full business name, address, phone number, entity type, bank account information, tax identification number, and business number, in addition to details regarding your beneficial owner(s), director(s), officer(s), authorized representative, and/or primary contact, such as name, contact information, nationality, title, and government-issued identification. You understand that Company may be unable to settle your transactions if you do not provide or timely update your contact information and other requested data.
We may use third-party payment services providers, such as your payment methods or financial accounts, to assist us in providing payment capabilities (such as companies that process payments and disburse settlements, perform risk assessments or compliance checks, verify identity, or validate payment or settlement methods), and we may process your data and transfer it to these third parties. You hereby explicitly consent to: our use of such third-party service providers, the outsourcing of services to them, and the related transfer and processing of data. Where applicable so we can provide you with the described payment functionality, you hereby waive any professional secrecy rights.
You authorize Company and our affiliates to verify information you provide to us, such as by verifying the existence of your wallet or Ethereum address and obtaining reports from third-party sources, such as banks, credit agencies, data brokers, and other service providers. We reserve the right to close, suspend, or limit your account or rescind your access to the Protocol and/or the Marketplace in the event we are unable to obtain or verify any of this information. You agree that Company is not responsible for any losses suffered by you as a result of incomplete or inaccurate information you provide.
Some services of the Protocol or provided in the Marketplace involve the use of the Ethereum blockchain or another blockchain, which may require that you pay a fee, for example “Ethereum Gas Charges”, for the computational resources required to perform a transaction. You acknowledge and agree that the Company has no control over: (a) any Ethereum or other blockchain transactions; (b) the method of payment of any Ethereum Gas Charges; or (c) any actual payments of Ethereum Gas Charges. Accordingly, you must ensure that you have a sufficient balance of Ether stored at your Wallet (or sufficient balance in an applicable cryptocurrency) to complete any transaction on the Protocol or in the Marketplace before initiating such transactions. If you do not agree with the fees charged for Protocol or Marketplace functionality, do not use or access the Protocol or the Marketplace, respectively.
Sellers are liable for transaction fees arising out of any sales made using any portion of our services, even if sales terms are finalized or payment is made outside of the Marketplace. For example, if you offer or reference your contact information, or ask buyers for their contact information for the purpose of buying or selling outside of Marketplace, you may be liable for a final value fee related to the item, even if the item doesn't sell, given your reliance on our Marketplace for the introduction to a potential buyer.
Users must have a payment method on file when selling or buying through the Marketplace and to access certain functionality of the Protocol. Users must pay all fees and applicable taxes associated with our services by the payment due date. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect amounts owed by charging other payment methods on file with us, retain collection agencies and legal counsel, suspend or limit services. In addition, you will be subject to late fees. Company, or the collection agencies we retain, may also report information about your account to credit bureaus, and as a result, late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on your account may be reflected in your credit report. If you wish to dispute the information Company reported to a credit bureau (i.e., Experian™, Equifax™ or TransUnion™) please contact us at CapsuleNFT, Inc., 330 North Wabash Avenue, 23rd Floor, Chicago, IL 60611, Attn: Bloq/BloqCloud Team. If you wish to dispute the information a collection agency reported to a credit bureau regarding your Company account, you must contact the collection agency directly.
You agree to comply with, and not cause a third party to violate, all applicable laws, regulations, rules and terms and conditions in connection with your payment methods. You understand that some third parties, including credit and debit card issuers, payments services providers, and others, may have their own applicable terms and conditions for the payment methods you choose to use. Failure to follow such third party terms and conditions may result in fees assessed to you (for example, currency conversion fees) or other actions taken by such third parties, and you agree that Company has no control over, or responsibility or liability for, such fees or actions
In any jurisdiction where Company has an obligation to collect sales taxes on sales you make using our Marketplace, we may collect such sales taxes from you via the payment method on file or via any other means available to us.
Seller fees don't purchase exclusive rights to item exposure on the Marketplace. We may display third-party advertisements (including links and references thereto) or other content in any part of the Marketplace, in our sole discretion and without consent from, or payment, fee reduction, or other credit to, sellers.
Sellers may create rules for automated replacements, returns and refunds under their chosen circumstances. For new sellers, Company will set a default rule that can be changed at the seller’s preference. If your Buyer is entitled to a refund, return, or cancellation for a transaction, you agree that we are authorized to refund the Buyer the amount paid for the transaction at issue.
Use of the Protocol or the Marketplace may carry financial risk. Digital Assets are a novel and relatively experimental technology. Their value, if any, can fluctuate with great volatility, and transactions conducted with Digital Assets are irreversible. Digital Assets and smart contracts are typically described using extremely technical language that is difficult to understand and requires a deep knowledge of cryptography and computer science. Functionality made available on the Website, in the Protocol or the Marketplace may have inherent design flaws that have not been detected in testing or may not perform as expected in conjunction with third-party technology or high-volume use. There are additional risks that exist with respect to the use of interacting with technologies like the Protocol and Marketplace, such as the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your wallet. Please be aware that hacks, cyber-attacks, distributed denials of service or errors, double-spent attacks, flash-loan attacks, vulnerabilities, defects or flaws in the applicable third-party blockchain network, or other events that are beyond our control may lead to partial or complete theft or loss of Digital Assets. YOU UNDERSTAND, ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES AND SUPPLIERS WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY COMMUNICATION FAILURES, DISRUPTIONS, ERRORS, DISTORTIONS OR DELAYS YOU MAY EXPERIENCE WHEN USING THE PROTOCOL AND MARKETPLACE, HOWEVER CAUSED. You should carefully consider whether you have sufficient understanding of the technology before accessing or using the Protocol or the Marketplace. Further, the legal and regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, Digital Assets, etc. is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the Protocol and Marketplace and the potential value or utility of Digital Assets. These technologies and platforms may have unique benefits, limitations, advantages and disadvantages. It is up to you to understand these factors.
By accessing or using the Protocol or the Marketplace, you hereby represent that you have the requisite knowledge and experience to evaluate the risk of the technology you are using and any transactions you undertake, and you accept the risk that the Protocol or Marketplace might not function as anticipated and that you might lose access to your Digital Assets temporarily or permanently.
You acknowledge the importance of the security measures we put in place with regards to purchases, payment methods, and financial accounts, and agree to comply with them. If you become aware of an unauthorized payment transaction or of a delayed or incorrectly executed transaction, you must notify us immediately.
