Please contact us at [email protected] for any questions or issues you may have with respect to these Terms.
THESE TERMS SET FORTH THE LEGALLY BINDING TERMS AND CONDITIONS THAT GOVERN YOUR USE OF THE SITE. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE, YOU ARE ACCEPTING THESE TERMS (ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE ENTITY THAT YOU REPRESENT), AND YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AUTHORITY, AND CAPACITY TO ENTER INTO THESE TERMS (ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR THE ENTITY THAT YOU REPRESENT). IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THE PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS OF SITE, DO NOT ACCESS AND/OR USE THE SITE.
THESE TERMS OF REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION (SECTION 10) ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS, AND ALSO LIMIT THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE.
The Site allows Users to view, interact with, create, or otherwise manipulate information related to non-fungible tokens, for example, non-fungible tokens associated with the Ethereum Blockchain including, but not limited to, upload user created content in the form of galleries, exhibitions, collections, registries, and other related display formats to our servers and other third party affiliates, manage existing non-fungible tokens, galleries, exhibitions, collections, registries, and other related display formats made via the Site, or made on other third party SITEs, browse non-fungible tokens, galleries, exhibitions, collections, registries, and other related display formats, and in some instances transact between two or more Users of the Site by selling non-fungible tokens. JPG bears no responsibility for the functionality or integrity of any underlying blockchain, decentralized storage solution, or distributed ledger network associated with any content that Users may wish to showcase via the Site, or associated with any NFTs displayed via the Site. Similarly, JPG can not guarantee the functionality of galleries, exhibitions, collections, registries, and other related display formats that are managed by third parties that JPG may work with.
For purposes of these Terms, a non-fungible token (“NFT,” or “NFTs”) may be defined as unique entries on a blockchain based ledger that are often associated with, but not limited to, pieces of media, or artwork, that may or may not have value to Users. For example, in some instances NFTs may be stored on the Ethereum blockchain and point to artwork that is stored elsewhere from the Ethereum blockchain.
Given the nature of blockchain based NFTs and the associated risks discussed in these Terms, JPG is unable to guarantee that any content intended to be displayed on the Site will necessarily display or otherwise be accessible via the Site as intended. Accordingly, JPG cannot be held liable if NFTs, galleries, exhibitions, collections, registries, and other related display formats cease to function, or otherwise never function, as intended due to errors that may occur on the underlying blockchain that the NFTs, galleries, exhibitions, collections, registries, and other related display formats depend upon, or errors with storage solutions for the artwork associated with the NFTs, galleries, exhibitions, collections, registries, and other related display formats. In particular, JPG cannot be held liable for errors related to decentralized storage solutions that may be employed by users, JPG, and other third-party affiliates that may occur and result in the inability to access artwork associated with the NFTs, galleries, exhibitions, collections, registries, and other related display formats.
We hereby grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to access and use the Site. Our grant of such license is subject to the following conditions:
In some instances, JPG may provide services such that Users of the Site may engage in transactions for NFTs. In these instances, JPG may collect certain fees for facilitating these transactions. In no case, whatsoever, does JPG guarantee that transactions will execute as intended and JPG is not liable for transactions that do not execute as anticipated. Transactions for NFTs carry unique risks and you the User assume the risk associated with those transactions.
Additionally, transactions in NFTs, or NFT related transactions, operate according to rulesets determined by the underlying blockchain, or distributed ledger, on which the NFT involved in the transaction exists. JPG cannot guarantee the functionality of any underlying blockchain, or distributed ledger, and in no way can be held responsible for failures that occur on the underlying blockchain due to, but not limited to, the following occurrences: network downtime, soft forks, hard forks, merges, DAO votes, 50%+1 attacks, double-spending instances or bugs, consensus failures, distributed denial of service attacks, key loss, key theft, wallet bugs, wallet code failure, and the like.
From time to time, JPG may work with third parties to facilitate transactions that occur via the Site. JPG does not guarantee that third parties that JPG may work will execute transactions as intended. Consequently, JPG is not responsible for the functionality of third party systems to facilitate said transactions.
