The CryptoMasterpieces application runs on the Ethereum network and utilizes smart contracts (with each being known as a “Smart Contract”) to allow users to buy and own unique, one-of-a-kind masterpiece digital contracts. Throughout these Terms of Service, the Smart Contracts and the Site hosting the application will be known as the “Application”. By choosing to use the Application, users can purchase and own masterpiece Smart Contracts.
CryptoMasterpieces is making the Application available to you. Prior to using the Application, you must agree to these Terms of Service.
Read the following Terms of Service carefully and thoroughly prior to using the Application, purchasing Smart Contracts, or using the Site. Unless we have a separate, written agreement with you that differs from the below Terms of Service, the following Terms of Service absolutely and unequivocally govern your use of the Site, purchase of Smart Contracts, and ownership of Smart Contracts. We will only allow you to use this Site, own Smart Contracts, and/or purchase Smart Contracts if you accept all of these Terms of Service. By using this Application, this Site, and/or these Smart Contracts, or by clicking “agree”, you confirm that you understand these Terms and accept these Terms. In the event that you are using this Site, this Application, or these Smart Contracts on behalf of another company or legal entity, you indicate that you have the legal authority to accept these Terms on the other party’s behalf, and that any mention of “you” in this contract means the other party that you represent. If you do not have the authority to represent another party, then you do not have permission to use this Application, this Site, or these Smart Contracts.
We have used the artwork of various artworks in the public domain to create unique, one-of-a-kind Smart Contracts on the Ethereum network. New masterpiece Smart Contracts will be released as we deem fit or when a gallery or creator request that we release an artwork on the platform.
Each masterpiece Smart Contract may be purchased by you utilizing ether. You may purchase any masterpiece Smart Contract you choose, and any other party may purchase a masterpiece Smart Contract that you currently own if the other party is willing to pay you a higher sum as hard coded into the smart contract.
You may not stop another party from purchasing a masterpiece Smart Contract that you currently own, and no other third party may stop you from purchasing a masterpiece Smart Contract that you wish to own. Whichever party is willing to pay the cost of the masterpiece Smart Contract may own said Smart Contract after he or she completes the transaction.
The Application allows you to buy, collect and sell digital assets. There is no guarantee that anyone else will buy these digital assets from you. While some collectors speculate about their ability to resell digital assets for a higher value in the future, there is no guarantee that another person will decide to buy your digital assets. If you you choose to transfer ETH in exchange for the smart contracts listed on the Application, you must accept and understand the risk of potentially not being able to sell your “smart contract” in the future. The game is designed for collectors who choose to pay for the ownership of a digital artwork. If you choose to speculate over the future value and liquidity of your asset, you must do so at your own risk and not hold the creators of the Application or the smart contract liable for any losses or damages. Play responsibly and do not spend more than you feel the digital asset is worth.
This Application requires that you utilize a Google Chrome or Firefox web browser that currently has a MetaMask browser extension installed. MetaMask is an electronic wallet created by a third party that allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using Ethereum cryptocurrency. You may not use any other electronic wallet on the Application other than MetaMask; however, you can use other electronic wallets and third-party applications to transfer funds to your MetaMask wallet in order to make purchases and receive payment on the Application. If you do not log on to the Application with the correct browser (either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) and/or if the browser does not have the MetaMask extension installed, you will be recognized by the Application, but you will not be able to interact with the Application in any way.
Any and all transactions that take place in the Application occur via the Ethereum blockchain. You understand that by using the Application, your Ethereum public address will be made visible to other users of the Application as well as third parties each and every time you engage in a transaction on the Application.
We do not own and we do not control any of the following third-party products used for the function of this Application: MetaMask, Coinbase, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or the Ethereum network.
We do not own and we do not control any other third-party site, product or service that you may choose to access, visit, or use for the purpose of interacting with or using the Application. We will not be held liable, and are not liable, for the acts or omissions by any such third party, nor are we liable, or will we be held liable, for any damage that you may suffer as a result of interacting with or using any of the mentioned or unmentioned third parties.
You must provide accurate and complete registration information when you create an account to utilize the Application. You are solely responsible for the safety and security of your MetaMask wallet and/or any other electronic wallet you utilize to interact with the Application.
You are solely responsible for the safety and security of your account with us. If you become aware of security breach in regards to your password or your account, you agree to notify us immediately upon discovery at hello@CryptoMasterpieces.com.
If you choose to purchase any “Masterpiece Smart Contract” on the Application, any and all transactions will be conducted through the Ethereum network utilizing a MetaMask electronic wallet. We will not have any insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor will we be able to reverse any transaction that occurs. Because of this, we will have no liability to you or any other third party for any claims or damages that may occur due to any transaction that takes place on the Application and/or in regards to any of the masterpiece Smart Contracts that we have created.
The Ethereum network requires that you pay a transaction fee, commonly known as “Gas”, for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network. Gas is intended to fund the hardware and software that runs the Ethereum network, as well as to prevent misuse and spam. If you choose to interact with the Application via our Site or without using the Application or our Site as a portal, you will still need to pay fee for any and every transaction you make on the Ethereum network.
We charge a 5% commission on every transaction conducted on our Site and in our Application in addition to the Gas charged by the Ethereum network. A portion of this commission is reserved for charity donations or royalties paid to different individuals. By using our Site and our Application, and by purchasing a masterpiece Smart Contract, you acknowledge this and agree that the commission will be transferred directly to us through the Ethereum network. We do not charge this fee for interactions that do not occur on our Application’s marketplace.
You are solely and unequivocally responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added, and other taxes, as well as any duties and assessments now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any government authority associated with your use of the Application. This includes, but is not limited to, any taxes, duties, and/or assessments that you become responsible for by owning or purchasing any masterpiece Smart Contract. Excluding income taxes levied on CryptoMasterpieces, by using this Application you agree to pay or reimburse us for all taxes and assessments in any jurisdiction with the authority to levy said taxes and assessments. This includes value-added taxes, taxes required by international trade treaties, import or export taxes, and any amounts levied based on charges set, services performed, or transactions made. You are not now or ever entitled to deduct the amount of any taxes, duties, or assessments levied from payments that you have made to us, including the commission collected when you complete a transaction on our Application.
By using this Application, you acknowledge and agree that we and/or our licenses own all legal rights, titles, and interests in and to any and all elements of the Application, including any and all intellectual property. This includes, but is not limited to: graphics, designs, information, systems, computer code, software, services, organization, content, compilation of content, data, design, and any and all other elements of the Application. We retain complete and full ownership of all of these elements, as well as any other element related to the Application not listed in these Terms of Service. Each and every one of these elements is owned by CryptoMasterpieces, and protected by copyright, trade, dress, patent, trademark laws, international conventions, and every other applicable property and proprietary rights laws.
