Information Sent to MINTX
All text, content, files, communications, feedback, comments, suggestions, ideas, concepts, questions, data or other content that you submit or post on or through the Services or through tools or applications we provide for posting or sharing such content or that you otherwise send to or make available to MINTX ("Information Sent") may be treated by MINTX as non-confidential.

Liability for Information Sent
You are solely responsible for your use of the Services and for any Information Sent, including compliance with applicable laws, rules, and regulations. We take no responsibility for the information posted or listed by you via the Services.

MINTX reserves the right to remove content without prior notice. MINTX will take down works in response to formal infringement claims and will terminate a user’s access to the Services if the user is determined to be a repeat infringer.
If you believe that your content has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or if your likeness has been used in a way that violates your rights, please notify us immediately. For MINTX to respond, please report this by contacting our designated agent at:
1539 Sawtelle Blvd Suite 3
Los Angeles, CA 90025
1539 Sawtelle Blvd Suite 3
Los Angeles, CA 90025
Such notifications must provide the following information:
(i) a physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner or the person or estate affected;
(ii) a clear identification of the copyrighted work that is claimed to be infringing or violating, including, if possible, a URL representing a link to the material on any of the Sites;
(iii) information sufficient to permit MINTX to contact the complainant, such as email address, physical address, and/or telephone number;
(iv) a statement that the complainant has a good-faith belief that the relevant material is being used in a way that is not authorized by the copyright owner, the person or estate affected, their agent, or under the law; and
(v) a statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information is accurate, and the complainant is authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner or the person or estate affected.
Please note that Section 512(f) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act may impose liability for damages on any person who knowingly sends meritless notices of infringement. Please do not make false claims. Any information or correspondence that you provide to MINTX may be shared with third parties, including the person who provided MINTX with the allegedly infringing material. Upon receipt of a bona fide infringement notification by our designated agent, it is our policy to remove or disable access to the infringing material, notify the user that it has removed or disabled access to the material, and, for repeat offenders, to terminate such user’s access to the service. If you believe that your content should not have been removed for alleged copyright infringement, you may send our designated agent a written counter-notice with the following information:
(i) identification of the copyrighted work that was removed, and the location on the Services where it would have been found prior to its removal;
(ii) a statement, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed as a result of a mistake or misidentification; and
(iii) your physical or electronic signature, together with your contact information (address, telephone number and, if available, email address).
If a counter-notice is received by our designated agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in ten 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the user, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our discretion.
You are prohibited from using, and agree that you will not use, the MINTX Sites to (i) inflict damage on people (including minors) or violate their rights of personality; (ii) behave in a manner that violates public policy; (iii) send content that is libellous, defamatory, obscene, insulting, pornographic or which glorifies violence or invades the privacy of another person; (iv) infringe intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights; (v) engage in any unlawful purpose or promote illegal activities; (vi) publish or link to malicious content of any sort, including that intended to damage or disrupt another user’s browser or computer; (vi) attempt to, or harass, abuse or harm another person or group; (vii) use the Services from a country sanctioned by the government of the United States; (viii) use the Services to participate in fundraising for a business, protocol, or platform, including but not limited to creating, listing, or buying assets that are redeemable for financial instruments, assets that give owners rights to participate in an initial coin offering ("ICO") or any digital assets or securities offering, or assets that entitle owners to financial rewards, including but not limited to, "DeFi" yield bonuses, staking bonuses, and burn discounts; or (ix) reverse engineer any aspect of the Sites or Services, or do anything that might discover source code or bypass or circumvent measures employed to prevent or limit access to any Services, area or code of the Sites or Services.
You further hereby agree that you will not (i) use another user’s account without permission, (ii) provide false or inaccurate information when registering an account on the Sites, (iii) interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper functioning of the Sites, (iv) make any automated use of the Sites, (v) take any action that we determine imposes or potentially imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our servers or network infrastructure, (vi) bypass any robot exclusion headers or other measures we take to restrict access to the Sites, (vii) use any software, technology, or device to scrape, spider, or crawl the Sites or harvest or manipulate data; (viii) circumvent, disable or otherwise interfere with any security-related features of the Sites or features that prevent or restrict use or copying of content, or enforce limitations on use of the Service or the content accessible via the Service.

You are also prohibited from using the MINTX Sites for any purpose that is unlawful. You are not permitted to register third parties at MINTX Sites for a subscription to a newsletter or similar publication without their knowledge and express consent.
Registration and Password
Some MINTX Sites may be password protected or some Sites that were previously freely accessible may now or from time to time require that you register. You have no right to demand that MINTX register you. MINTX may at any time revoke your login authorization or credentials, and block your login data for any reason or for no reason (and without notification to you that it has done so), including, but not limited to, where (i) you made a false statement at the time you registered, (ii) you violated the law when using any MINTX Sites or (iii) you have, for an extended period of time, not used any MINTX Sites.
All information that you supply when registering must be truthful and accurate and you must notify MINTX without delay of any changes which subsequently affect the information supplied.
After you have successfully registered, you will automatically receive an e-mail notifying you that your account has been set up. Your e-mail address will at the same time be your user name for your account. During the registration process you will be asked to choose and submit a password. After you log into your account, you may change your password if you wish. You must keep your user ID and password confidential, may not make them available to any third party and must protect your user ID and password from access by unauthorized third parties. We may change, modify or supplement the registration process at any time and for any reason. If we do so, you may be required to re-register, re-authenticate your access, and/or provide us with supplemental information. You will be responsible for any misuse of your user ID, password or other credentials.
Wallet and Non-fungible tokens
Transactions that take place on the Sites are managed and confirmed via certain decentralized blockchain protocols, such as FLOW, XRPL, Ethereum, and other protocols now in existence or that may be developed. You understand that your public address for the applicable blockchain will be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction on the Sites.
You are responsible for the security of your account on the Sites and your blockchain wallets (including all private keys related thereto).
You accept and acknowledge:
(i) There is no and can be no guarantee or assurance of the uniqueness, originality or quality of any non-fungible token. Without an express legal agreement between the creator and purchaser of a non-fungible token, there cannot be any guarantee or assurance that the purchase or holding of such non-fungible token gives you or anyone else any license to or ownership of the contents thereof, including any intellectual property associated therewith or any other right or entitlement thereto.
(ii) The prices of digital assets, including both cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens, are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value and volatility of your non-fungible tokens. We cannot guarantee the value of your non-fungible tokens. The purchase of non-fungible tokens includes the risk of loss of some or all of the original purchase price, and by purchasing non-fungible tokens on the Sites, you acknowledge and accept such risk.
(iii) You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your non-fungible token transactions. We are not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to non-fungible token transactions.
(iv) A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems generally, or non-fungible tokens more specifically, could negatively impact the development of those ecosystems and related applications, and could therefore also negatively impact the potential utility or value of non-fungible tokens.
(v) The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, distributed ecosystems, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Service and the utility of crypto assets, including non-fungible tokens. We cannot guarantee that your use of the Sites or continued use of the Sites will be unaffected by the regulatory regime (or changes in the regulatory regime) that applies in your (or our) jurisdiction.
(vi) There are risks associated with purchasing user-generated content, including but not limited to, the risk of purchasing counterfeit assets, mislabeled assets, assets that are vulnerable to metadata decay, assets on smart contracts with bugs, and assets that may become untransferable. We reserve the right to hide collections, contracts, and assets affected by any of these issues or by other issues. Assets you purchase may become inaccessible on MINTX. Under no circumstances shall the inability to view your assets on MINTX serve as grounds for a claim against MINTX.
You acknowledge and agree that, except as may otherwise be expressly provided in the smart contract associated with the purchase of a non-fungible token on the Sites, such purchase conveys you no intellectual property rights of any kind in or to the artwork, content or other data or asset to which the non-fungible token links or otherwise directly or indirectly relates.
Holding Non-Fungible Tokens for Your Benefit1
We may, in our discretion, agree at your request to hold as a gratuitous bailment for your benefit non-fungible tokens acquired by you through your account. At any time, subject to outages, downtime, and other applicable policies, you may withdraw such non-fungible tokens or we may terminate such holding arrangement and notify you of our determination to transfer such non-fungible tokens to you. In either case, you will notify us, pursuant to process described in the "Notifications in Electronic Form" section below, of a public blockchain address to which you instruct us to transfer specified non-fungible tokens. By notifying us of such public blockchain address, you agree that you are representing to us that the holder of such address is not directly or indirectly a Prohibited Party (as defined below). We reserve the right to refuse or otherwise block such transaction if we determine, in our sole discretion, that the receiving public blockchain address is owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by a Prohibited Party (as defined below).
While we will segregate your non-fungible tokens using ledgers and related records maintained by us, we have no obligation to segregate, on separate public blockchain addresses, your non-fungible tokens from non-fungible tokens owned by other users or by MINTX. You acknowledge and agree that we own all rights in and to the public blockchain address(es) on which we hold such non-fungible tokens for you or the private cryptographic key(s) associated therewith, and you only have rights in your non-fungible tokens held by us for you.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL THE COLLECTIVE LIABILITY OF MINTX AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES, AND THEIR LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, AND DIRECTORS, TO YOU OR ANY PARTY (REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) EXCEED $100.
THE FOREGOING DOES NOT AFFECT ANY LIABILITY THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
You hereby agree that MINTX and its affiliates and their respective shareholders, directors, officers, employees, representatives, agents, contractors, customers and licensees (collectively, the "Indemnified Parties") shall have no liability whatsoever for, and you shall indemnify and hold harmless the Indemnified Parties from and against, any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable lawyer’s fees) arising from, in connection with or related to: (a) any use you make of the Sites; (b) your relationships or interactions with any other users of the Sites; (c) Information Sent; (d) your breach of these Terms or (e) your gross negligence, wilful misconduct or fraud.
Governing Law; Dispute Resolution
These Terms shall be governed by and construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware irrespective of the choice of laws principles of the state of Delaware, as to all matters, including matters of validity, construction, effect, enforceability, performance and remedies. Although the Sites or Services may be available in other jurisdictions, you hereby acknowledge and agree that such availability shall not be deemed to give rise to general or specific personal jurisdiction over MINTX in any forum outside the State of Delaware.
Settlement Negotiations. If you have a potential legal dispute, claim or cause of action against MINTX, you shall first (prior to initiating any litigation proceedings) contact MINTX by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org describing the nature of the potential dispute, claim or cause of action and providing all relevant documentation and evidence thereof. If so elected by MINTX, you shall use commercially reasonable efforts to negotiate a settlement of any such legal dispute, claim or cause of action within 60 days of the delivery of such email. Any such dispute, claim or cause of action that is not finally resolved by a binding, written settlement agreement within such 60 days shall be brought and resolved exclusively in accordance with the following provisions of this section titled "Governing Law; Dispute Resolution".
Agreement to Binding, Exclusive Arbitration
(a) Mandatory Binding Arbitration: Except as set forth in the immediately preceding paragraph, all claims, disputes and controversies directly or indirectly arising out of or in connection with or directly or indirectly relating to these Terms or any of the matters or transactions contemplated by these Terms (for the avoidance of doubt, including any claim seeking to invalidate, or alleging that, all or any part of these Terms is unenforceable, void or voidable) (such claims, disputes and controversies, collectively, "Disputes") shall be finally settled by binding arbitration, rather than in court. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court, agency or other governmental authority, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all Disputes.
(b) Waiver of Jury Trial: The parties hereby acknowledge, represent and warrant that they understand that: (i) there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and, absent this mandatory provision, the parties would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial concerning Disputes; (ii) in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation; (iii) the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court; and (iv) court review of an arbitration award is limited. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to these Terms. Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives any and all right to trial by jury in any action, suit or other legal proceeding arising out of or related to these Terms or the transactions contemplated hereby.
Arbitration Procedures. MINTX or you may initiate an arbitration proceeding by delivering written notice to the other, whereupon the parties shall reasonably cooperate to select an arbitrator and submit the relevant Dispute to such arbitrator. In the event the parties are unable to agree on the selection of an arbitrator within 15 days from the filing of a demand for arbitration, the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") shall appoint the arbitrator. Any such arbitration shall be administered by the AAA in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the supplementary procedures for consumer related disputes of the AAA excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. MINTX will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written and reasoned, and binding on the parties, and may be entered by any party as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Seat of Arbitration. The seat of arbitration shall be Wilmington, Delaware. The arbitrator may choose to have the arbitration of any Dispute conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or at a mutually agreed location; provided, however, that MINTX may opt to transfer the venue of any arbitration hearing to another location of its choice in the event that it agrees to pay any additional fees or costs you may reasonably incur as a result of the change in venue, as determined by the arbitrator, and, subject to the foregoing, you hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in Wilmington, Delaware, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Confidentiality of Arbitration. Except to the extent necessary to enforce their respective rights under these Terms or as otherwise required by applicable law, the parties undertake to maintain confidentiality as to the existence and events of the arbitration proceedings and as to all submissions, correspondence and evidence relating to the arbitration proceedings. This provision shall survive the termination of the arbitral proceedings.
Class Action Waiver
(a) No Class Actions Permitted: You hereby agree that any arbitration or other permitted action with respect to any Dispute shall be conducted in your individual capacity only and not as a class action or other representative action, and you expressly waive your right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU SHALL BRING CLAIMS AGAINST MINTX ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
(b) Agreements if Class Action Waiver Unenforceable: If any court or arbitrator makes a final, binding and non-appealable determination that the class action waiver set forth in this sub-section titled "Class Action Waiver" is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void with respect to any Dispute that would thus be required to be resolved by arbitration on a class basis, and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate such Dispute. In the event that, as a result of the application of the immediately preceding sentence or otherwise, any Dispute is not subject to arbitration, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the federal and state courts located in Wilmington, Delaware and to accept service of process by mail with respect to such Dispute, and hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available with respect to such Dispute.
