Without limiting any other remedies available to us, We may suspend or cancel Your Account and terminate these Terms at any time by notice to You if: You breach any of the Terms or otherwise violate Our rights or those of another User; We are unable to verify or authenticate any information You provide to Us; or We reasonably believe that Your actions might cause a legal liability to any other User or Us; or We believe You will breach any of the Terms or will encourage any other Person or entity to do so. Also, if You engage in any action or activity that circumvents the Platform or any of these Terms in such a way as to avoid or reduce fees that would otherwise be payable to us, then You will be liable to us for the difference and we may suspend or cancel Your Account.
BY US WITHOUT CAUSE
We may terminate the Terms and suspend and/or cancel Your Account at any time, at Our sole discretion for any or no reason, without provision of prior notice. You agree that any suspension or termination of Your access to the Platform may be without prior notice, and that We will not be liable to You or to any third party for any such suspension, cancellation or termination.
BY YOU WITHOUT CAUSE
You can cancel Your Account and terminate the Terms at any time by notice to Us, or terminate these Terms at any time by cancelling Your Account and discontinuing Your access to and use of the Platform, although We will be sorry to see You go. If You created or have been using Your Account in connection with Your role with a Client or Service Provider, the cancellation of Your Account will not automatically result in the cancellation or termination of any agreement between us and that Client or Service Provider, which will instead be governed by the terms of that agreement and applicable law.
CONSEQUENCES OF TERMINATION, SUSPENSION OR CANCELLATION
If we suspend or cancel Your Account, or You cancel Your Account, or these Terms are terminated by either You or Us, then (without limiting any other rights We may have at law or in equity or under any statute): You must not continue to use or access the Platform or any Service, including under a different Account, or re-register under a new Account; to the extent permitted by law, no amount paid in advance by You will be refundable and You will not receive any refunds for any purchases that You might make on or through the Platform – whether for NFTs, Packs of NFTs or anything else; We may obtain payment of any outstanding amount (or that becomes payable) through any payment methods available to Us in connection with Your suspended or cancelled Account or any other Account that You register; You may no longer have access to information that You have posted on the Platform or that is related to Your Account and You acknowledge that We will have no obligation to maintain any such information in Our databases or to forward any such information to You or to any third party; if You have purchased or acquired an NFT, Your NFT Use Rights and Limited IP Licence will immediately terminate, You must immediately cease using that NFT, You must transfer that NFT in accordance with Our instructions and We can delete any Content with respect to that NFT from a marketplace where You obtained the NFT; and We may refuse to provide an Account to You in the future. All of Your and Our accrued rights, and the provisions of the Terms that by their nature are intended to survive termination or expiry of the Terms (including this section and the sections titled ‘Ownership and Use of the Platform, Services and Platform Materials’ and the sections below titled ‘Warranties and Disclaimers’ and ‘Limitations of Liability’) will survive any termination or expiry of the Terms.
REFERRALS TO GOVERNMENT AGENCIES
We have the right, without provision of prior notice, to take appropriate legal action, including, without limitation, referral to any government agency, law enforcement agency or regulatory authority, or notifying the harmed party of any illegal or unauthorised use of the Platform. Without limiting the foregoing, We have the right to fully cooperate with any government agency, law enforcement agency, regulatory authority or court or tribunal order or ministerial directions requesting or directing Us to disclose the identity or other information of anyone using the Platform or any other information relating to You or Your Account.
WARRANTIES AND DISCLAIMERS
We provide the Platform and Our Services using a reasonable level of skill and care and We hope that You will enjoy using them.

NFTS ARE INTANGIBLE DIGITAL ASSETS THAT EXIST ONLY BY VIRTUE OF THE OWNERSHIP RECORD MAINTAINED IN THE NETWORK. ALL SMART CONTRACTS ARE CONDUCTED AND OCCUR ON THE DECENTRALISED LEDGER WITHIN THE NETWORK. WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER AND MAKE NO GUARANTEES OR PROMISES WITH RESPECT TO SMART CONTRACTS. The Platform may contain links to internet sites or resources maintained or controlled by third parties. You acknowledge and agree that: (a) We have no control over, and are not responsible for, the contents of any such sites (including the accuracy, legality or decency of any information) or any link contained on such sites; (b) such link does not imply any endorsement by Us; (c) we are not responsible for the legality or Intellectual Property compliance of any such site; and (d) We will not be liable for any damages or loss arising in any way out of, in connection with or incidental to any information or third party service provided by any third party. While We take all reasonable due care in ensuring the privacy and integrity of information You provide to Us (see the section entitled ‘Privacy’ below), the possibility always exists that this information could be unlawfully accessed or observed by third parties while in transit over the internet or while stored on Our system. To the greatest extent possible pursuant to law, We expressly disclaim any liability to You should this occur. If You are dissatisfied or harmed by Us or anything related to Us, then You may cancel Your Account and terminate the Terms in accordance with the section above titled ‘Termination, Suspension and Cancellation of Accounts’ and, to the extent permitted by law, such cancellation and termination will be Your sole and exclusive remedy. In consideration for the benefits of registering an Account in accordance with the Terms, You agree that in no event will You seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Platform or the Services, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Platform or the Services or any content or other material used or displayed through the Platform or Services. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties in contracts with consumers, so some or all of the above exclusions may not apply to You.
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
To the extent permitted by law, other than as expressly provided below, in no event will either of Us (jointly and/or severally) or any Service Provider or Client be responsible to You or any other Person in connection with any lost profits, revenues, or data, financial losses, cost of substitute goods or services, loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer and/or device or technology failure or malfunction or any other indirect, special, consequential, exemplary or punitive loss or damages relating to or in connection with Your ownership or use of any NFT or Your use of the Platform or the Services. This limitation of liability will: apply regardless of whether: (i) You base Your claim on contract, tort, statute or any other legal theory; (ii) We knew or should have known about the possibility of such damages; or (iii) the limited remedies provided in this section fail their purpose; not apply to any damage that We cause You intentionally and in fundamental breach of the Terms or any applicable law, or as otherwise mandated by applicable law that cannot be disclaimed from in the Terms; and not apply if You have entered into a non-standard agreement to purchase Services with a separate limitation of liability provision that expressly supersedes this section in relation to those Services.
We recognise that in some countries, You might have legal rights as a consumer. To the extent permitted by law, any liability of Ours in connection with the Services or Platform under any statutory right (including any condition or warranty implied by law or any guarantee or other right under any statute) that by law cannot be excluded is, where permitted by law, limited at Our option to the resupply of the relevant services or the payment of the cost of same.
YOU AGREE THAT OUR TOTAL, AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF (OR YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE) ANY PORTION OF THE PLATFORM OR SERVICES, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE ACTUALLY AND LAWFULLY PAID US UNDER THESE TERMS IN THE TWO (2) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE DATE THE CLAIM AROSE.
THIRD PARTY CONTENT
To the extent permitted by law, We expressly exclude any liability for any remarks, information or other content posted or made available on the Platform or via the Services, including by any User or third party, even if it may not be Unacceptable Content. Other than as required by law, We do not have, and expressly exclude any liability for, any obligation to monitor content on the Platform or submitted via the Services for Unacceptable Content. We will remove or restrict access to any information or content posted or made available on the Platform or via the Services where required by law or if ordered to do so by a court. Otherwise, We may remove or restrict access to any such information or content if We consider such information or content to be Unacceptable Content, but We have no obligation to do so.
CONSIDERATION FOR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE HAVE MADE THE PLATFORM AVAILABLE TO YOU AND ENTERED INTO THE TERMS IN RELIANCE UPON THE REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET OUT IN THE TERMS, WHICH REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN US AND YOU AND FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN US AND YOU. WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE PLATFORM TO YOU WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
You agree to hold harmless and indemnify Us, Our Related Body Corporates and Service Providers and each of Our and their officers, agents, employees, contractors, advertisers, licensors, suppliers or partners from and against any claim, liability, Losses, damage (actual and consequential) of any kind or nature, suit, judgement, litigation cost and lawyers’ fees arising out of or in any way related to: (i) Your breach of any of the Terms; (ii) Your misuse of the Platform or Services; (iii) Your breach of any law or regulation arising as a result of Your use of any NFT, (iii) Your violation or infringement of any Intellectual Property Rights or any applicable laws, rules or regulations in connection with Your access to or use of the Platform or Services or ownership of Your NFT and (iv) Your Personal Content. You agree that We will have control of the defence or settlement of any such claims. YOU WAIVE AND HOLD US, OUR RELATED BODY CORPORATES AND SERVICE PROVIDERS AND EACH OF OUR AND THEIR OFFICERS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, ADVERTISERS, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS OR PARTNERS AND EACH OF THEIR SUCCESSORS HARMLESS FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ANY ACTION TAKEN BY US AND ANY OF THE FOREGOING PARTIES RELATING TO ANY INVESTIGATIONS BY EITHER US OR SUCH PARTIES OR BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES.
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PLATFORM, SERVICES AND NFTS
By registering Your Account and/or using the Platform or Services and/or purchasing, selling or dealing in any way with any NFT, You understand and agree to the following risks:
FRAUD AND OTHER ATTACKS
By acquiring NFTs on the Platform, You accept that NFTs are subject to the risk of fraud, counterfeiting, cyber-attacks and other technological risks which may prevent Your access or use of them.
VALUE AND VOLATILITY OF NFTS
The prices of collectible blockchain assets are extremely volatile and subjective and collectible blockchain assets have no inherent or intrinsic value. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of Your NFTs which may also be subject to significant price volatility. Each NFT has no inherent or intrinsic value. It is Your responsibility to independently determine the value of Your NFTs. We cannot guarantee that any NFT purchased will retain their original value, as the value of collectibles and other types of NFTs is inherently subjective and factors occurring outside of the Platform may materially impact the value and desirability of any particular NFT.
Moreover, any purchase or sale You make, accept or facilitate outside of the Platform of an NFT, or any other transaction You make relating to an NFT outside of this Platform, will be entirely at Your risk. We do not endorse or control purchases or sales of NFTs outside of the Platform. We expressly deny any liability in relation to, and any obligation to indemnify You or hold You harmless for or in relation to, any liabilities, damages, expenses, costs, claims or losses You may incur by transacting, or facilitating transactions, in NFTs outside of this Platform.
USE OF BLOCKCHAIN/PROTOCOLS AND OTHER TECHNOLOGICAL RISKS
There are risks associated with using any blockchain technology, 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 unauthorised access to information stored within Your Wallet. Moreover, transactions conducted through the Network may take time to be confirmed or, in some cases, are not completed. Upgrades to the Network, a hard fork in the Network, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the Network may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using the Network’s NFT standard, including the Platform. The Platform does not store, send, or receive NFTs. This is because NFTs exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the Platform supporting blockchain in the Network. Any transfer of NFTs occurs within the supporting blockchain in the Network and not on the Platform. 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 Platform or Network, however caused.
The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and fungible and non-fungible tokens is uncertain and new laws, regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Platform and, therefore the potential utility or value of Your NFTs, including but not limited to tax, financial services, securities and other laws, regulations and policies.
We will not be liable or responsible to You or be deemed to have defaulted under or breached the Terms, due to any failure or delay by Us to comply with the Terms as a result of any Force Majeure Event. In the event of any Force Majeure Event affecting Us, We will use Our reasonable efforts to promptly notify You of the Force Majeure Event stating the period of time the occurrence is expected to continue. We will use diligent efforts to end the failure or delay and ensure the effects of such Force Majeure Events are minimised. We will resume the performance of our obligations as soon as reasonably practicable after the removal of the cause.
Where we have provided You with a translation of the English language version of the Terms and/or any other documentation, You agree that the translation is provided for Your convenience only and that the English language versions of the Terms and any other documentation will govern Your relationship with Us.
Each User must provide and maintain a valid Address on the Platform. You consent to the use of: (a) electronic signatures or other electronic means to complete the Terms and any other agreements to be entered into between You and Us; (b) electronic means to deliver any notices and provide any disclosures pursuant to the Terms; and (c) electronic records to store information related to the Terms or Your use of the Platform. Notices will be invalid unless made in writing and given: (i) by us, via email to the relevant Address that You provide and maintain on the Platform; (ii) by us, by posting on the Platform; or (iii) by You, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. An email will be taken to have been served at the time of sending, unless within 24 hours of it being sent the sender receives a manual or automated response indicating that it was not delivered successfully.
DATES AND TIMELINES
All references to days shall be to calendar days, except as expressly noted otherwise.
The failure or delay of either party to exercise or enforce any right or claim does not constitute a waiver of such right or claim and shall in no way affect that party’s right to later enforce or exercise it, unless such party issues an express written waiver, signed by a duly authorised representative of each party.
ASSIGNABILITY AND CONTINUED APPLICABILITY
These Terms will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Rights Holder and its successors and assigns. The Rights Holder may assign, delegate or otherwise transfer (including without limitation, by way of merger or contribution), any of its rights or obligations under these Terms and/or otherwise subcontract any of its obligations under these Terms, in whole or in part, to any of its affiliates and/or to any third party, without Your consent or approval. BlockTrust may, with the approval of the Rights Holder and without Your content or approval, assign, delegate or otherwise transfer (including without limitation, by way of merger or contribution), any of its rights or obligations under these Terms to the Rights Holder.
THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARY RIGHTS
Except to the extent that the Terms purport to confer a right on any Related Body Corporate, Client, Service Provider or director, officer, employee, agent, contractor or other representative of either of Us, our Related Body Corporates, or any Client or Service Provider (which we hold in trust for each of them), the Terms will: (a) create rights and obligations only between Us and each User; and (b) not create any rights for any other Person. For the avoidance of doubt, no User will be entitled to enforce the Terms as they apply between Us and another User.
If and to the extent any provision of these Terms is held illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in whole or in part under applicable law, such provision or such portion thereof shall be ineffective as to the jurisdiction in which it is illegal, invalid, or unenforceable to the extent of its illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability, and shall be deemed modified to the extent necessary to conform to applicable law so as to give the maximum effect to the intent of the parties. The illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of such provision in that jurisdiction shall not in any way affect the legality, validity, or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction or of any other provision in any jurisdiction.
Each party must, at its own expense, whenever reasonably requested by the other party, promptly do or arrange for others to do everything reasonably necessary to give full effect to these Terms.
The courts in some countries will not apply the laws of Victoria, Australia to some types of disputes. If You reside in a country where the laws of Victoria, Australia are excluded from applying, then Your country’s laws will apply to such disputes related to these Terms. Otherwise, You agree that the laws of Victoria, Australia, excluding its choice of law rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to the Terms or the Services. Similarly, if the courts in Your country will not permit You to consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the courts in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, then Your local jurisdiction and venue will apply to such disputes related to the Terms. Otherwise, all claims arising out of or relating to the Terms or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
