To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Tokenwave and the other Tokenwave Parties will not be liable to you under any theory of liability—whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive or special damages or lost profits, even if Tokenwave or the other Tokenwave Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
The total liability of Tokenwave and the other Tokenwave Parties for any claim arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to the greater of $100 or the amount paid by you to use our Services.
The limitations set forth in this Section 12 will not limit or exclude liability for the gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct of Tokenwave or the other Tokenwave Parties or for any other matters in which liability cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Additionally, some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
You acknowledge and agree that there are risks associated with the acquisition and use of Digital Collectibles (including, without limitation, purchase, sale, storage, and transfer of NFTs) (any of the foregoing, a "Token Transaction") and our Services that may cause you to incur financial losses including, but not limited to, the following: (a) your Digital Collectibles or data may be stolen, copied, or accessed without your authorization; (b) you may be unable to collect your Digital Collectibles if you are unwilling or unable to create an account or enter the appropriate code or other mechanism for identifying your purchase transaction; (c) any Digital Collectible may be compromised or cease to operate as intended due to technological failure, technological progression, changes to applicable laws or regulations or third-party attacks; (d) the value of Digital Collectibles (including, without limitation, NFTs) may be highly volatile and any Digital Collectible may lose some or all of its value due to, among other things, lack of demand, market manipulation, government regulation, or any reason described in (c), above; and (e) information or instructions transmitted over the Internet may be delayed, interrupted, stolen, or altered due to software or hardware malfunction or third-party hacks. You assume full responsibility and agree that Tokenwave will not have any responsibility or liability for any losses, damages, or other harm you may incur in connection with any or all such risks.
You hereby irrevocably waive, release, and discharge any and all claims, whether known or unknown to you, against Tokenwave or any of its affiliates and their respective shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees, attorneys, agents, representatives, service providers, suppliers, and other business partners related to any of the risks set forth herein. You waive application of Section 1542 of the Civil Code of the State of California, or any similar statute or law of any other jurisdiction. Section 1542 reads as follows: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS, HER, OR THEIR FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY HIM, HER, OR THEM, WOULD HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS, HER, OR THEIR SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY."
In order for us to provide our Services, you agree that we may process, transfer and store information about you in the United States and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.
Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Tokenwave and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us, unless you opt out of arbitration by following the instructions set forth below. No class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this arbitration agreement. In addition, arbitration precludes you from suing in court or having a jury trial.
No Representative Actions. You and Tokenwave agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and Tokenwave and that any dispute will be resolved solely through individual action, and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding.
Arbitration of Disputes. Except for small claims disputes in which you or Tokenwave seeks to bring an individual action in small claims court located in the county of your billing address or disputes in which you or Tokenwave seeks injunctive or other equitable relief for the alleged unlawful use of intellectual property, you and Tokenwave waive your rights to a jury trial and to have any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services resolved in court. Instead, for any dispute or claim that you have against Tokenwave or relating in any way to our Services, you agree to first contact Tokenwave and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending a written notice of your claim ("Notice") to Tokenwave by email at [email protected] or by certified mail addressed to Attn: Legal Department 2802 Wetmore Avenue, Everett, WA 98201. The Notice must (a) include your name, residence address, email address, and telephone number; (b) describe the nature and basis of the claim; and (c) set forth the specific relief sought. Our notice to you will be similar in form to that described above. If you and Tokenwave cannot reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after such Notice is received, then either party may submit the dispute to binding arbitration administered by JAMS or, under the limited circumstances set forth above, in court. All disputes submitted to JAMS will be resolved through confidential, binding arbitration before one arbitrator. Arbitration proceedings will be held in New York, New York in the borough of Manhattan or may be conducted telephonically or via video conference for disputes alleging damages less than $1000, in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("JAMS Rules"). The most recent version of the JAMS Rules are available on the JAMS website and are hereby incorporated by reference. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understand the JAMS Rules or waive your opportunity to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
You and Tokenwave agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section 15 will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the "FAA"), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these Terms and the JAMS Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court, including the power to determine the question of arbitrability. The arbitrator may conduct only an individual arbitration and may not consolidate more than one individual’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one individual.
The arbitrator, Tokenwave, and you will maintain the confidentiality of any arbitration proceedings, judgments and awards, including, but not limited to, all information gathered, prepared and presented for purposes of the arbitration or related to the dispute(s) therein. The arbitrator will have the authority to make appropriate rulings to safeguard confidentiality, unless the law provides to the contrary. The duty of confidentiality does not apply to the extent that disclosure is necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy or in connection with a judicial challenge to an arbitration award or its enforcement, or to the extent that disclosure is otherwise required by law or judicial decision.
You and Tokenwave agree that for any arbitration you initiate, you will pay the filing fee and Tokenwave will pay the remaining JAMS fees and costs. For any arbitration initiated by Tokenwave, Tokenwave will pay all JAMS fees and costs. You and Tokenwave agree that the federal courts of the State of New York and the United States sitting in the Southern District of New York have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and Tokenwave will not have the right to assert the claim.
You have the right to opt out of binding arbitration within 30 days of the date you first accepted the terms of this Section 15 by emailing us at [email protected]. In order to be effective, the opt-out notice must include your full name and address and clearly indicate your intent to opt out of binding arbitration. By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve disputes in accordance with Section 17.
If any portion of this Section 15 is found to be unenforceable or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 15 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 15; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 15 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 15 will be enforceable.
In making our Services available, Tokenwave (a) uses third-party hosting infrastructures and other technology or services and (b) may provide information about or links to third-party products or services ((a) and (b), "Third-Party Services" and the vendors that provide the Third-Party Services, the "Third-Party Vendors"). You specifically acknowledge and agree that (i) the Platform and NFTs reside on the Worldwide Asset eXchange, or WAX ("WAX") blockchain (the "WAX Blockchain"), (ii) the WAX Blockchain is a Third-Party Service, and (iii) WAX is a Third-Party Vendor
Any dispute arising from these Terms and your use of our Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, except to the extent preempted by U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts of the State of New York and the United States, respectively, sitting in the Southern District of New York.
We reserve the right to modify our Services or to suspend or stop providing all or portions of our Services at any time. You also have the right to stop using our Services at any time. We are not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use our Services.
If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms, including any terms referenced in these Terms, constitute the entire agreement between you and Tokenwave relating to your access to and use of our Services. Notwithstanding any other provisions of these Terms, all sections of these Terms that by their nature extend beyond the discontinuation of our Services or other termination of your access to our Services, including, without limitation, Sections 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (except for the license granted therein), and 8 through 20, will survive termination or discontinuation. The failure of Tokenwave to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity. You agree that communications and transactions between us may be conducted electronically. These Terms may not be transferred, assigned or delegated by you, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent, and any attempted transfer, assignment or delegation without such consent will be void and without effect. We may freely transfer, assign or delegate these Terms or our Services, in whole or in part, without your prior written consent.
