2. Conditions of Use
A. License to Use
The Offerings are to be used solely for the purposes described within these Terms of Service, and may not be exploited in any commercial manner not expressly granted herein. Except for the foregoing limited license, no right, title or interest shall be transferred to you. Unless otherwise expressly authorized herein or in the Offerings, you agree not to display, distribute, license, perform, publish, reproduce, duplicate, copy, create derivative works from, modify, sell, resell, exploit, transfer or Upload (as defined below) for any commercial purposes, any portion of the Offerings, use of the Offerings, or access to the Offerings.
B. Registration Obligations
Anyone can browse the Platform without registering for an account. You may be required to register with Tavern in order to access and use certain features on the Platform, such as participating as a Creator or Collector. If you choose to register for the Platform, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by our registration form. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. You must be at least 13 years old to register for an account as a Creator, and at least 18 years old to place a bid on any Collectible. If you are between 13 and 18 years old, you must have the expressed permission of a parent or legal guardian who can accept these Terms on your behalf. You are responsible for anything that occurs when anyone is signed in to your account, as well as the security of the account.
There are two types of accounts you can create on the Platform: a creator account (“Creator Account”) and (2) a collector account (“Collector Account”). Any User found to be falsely representing their identity shall have their account immediately terminated and potentially be liable for civil and criminal penalties.
C. Creator Accounts
The Creator Account is designed for individuals or companies who wish to create Collectibles and connect with Collectors. Creators may only create an account under a Creator’s individual or company or brand identity. In the event the company or brand identity that is protected by a registered trademark is used to create a Creator Account, only the owner of the registered trademark will be permitted to create the Creator Account.
You will also be required to authenticate your identity from time to time. To do so, we reserve the right to require you to submit documentation demonstrating either your identity, your ownership of the company name you register and/or any trademarks associated with that company. After approval of a Creator Account, Creators are able to actually create Collectibles.
D. Collector Accounts
The Collector Account is designed for individuals wishing to interact and connect with individuals or companies that are Creators.
Every Collector must adhere to our policy of single account per user. Creating multiple accounts is strictly prohibited. We reserve the right to authenticate your identity from time to time. We reserve the right to suspend your account if we suspect you are in violation of our terms and policies.
E. Member Account, Password, and Security
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, if any, and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (i) immediately notify Tavern of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (ii) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session when accessing the Platform. Tavern will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.
F. Connecting Your Wallet
In order to participate as a Creator or Collector in the marketplace, you must connect to a browser extension called MetaMask. MetaMask is an electronic wallet which allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using Polygon or similar Ethereum-like blockchains. Transactions on the Platform are in cryptocurrency.

As the copyright owner, the Creator has the right to reproduce, prepare derivative Collectibles, distribute, and display or perform the Collectible.

I. Collector Rights
Collectors have the right to mint a cryptographic token representing the Creator’s Collectible as a piece of property, but do not own the creative work itself. Collectors may display and share the Collectible, but Collectors do not have any legal ownership, right, or title to any copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights to the Collectible, excepting the limited license to the Collectible granted by these Terms.

Collectors have the right to sell, trade, transfer, or use their Collectible, but Collectors may not make “commercial use” of the Collectible.
The Collector agrees that it may not, nor permit any third party, to do or attempt to do any of the foregoing without the Creator’s express prior written consent in each case: (i) modify, distort, mutilate, or perform any other modification to the Collectible which would be prejudicial to the Creator’s honor or reputation; (ii) use the Collectible to advertise, market, or sell any third party product or service; (iii) use the Collectible in connection with images, videos, or other forms of media that depict hatred, intolerance, violence, cruelty, or anything else that could reasonably be found to constitute hate speech or otherwise infringe upon the rights of others; (iv) incorporate the Collectible in movies, videos, video games, or any other forms of media for a commercial purpose, except to the limited extent that such use is expressly permitted by these Terms or solely for your Collector’s personal, non-commercial use; (v) sell, distribute for commercial gain, or otherwise commercialize merchandise that includes, contains, or consists of the Collectible; (vi) attempt to trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire additional intellectual property rights in or to the Collectible; (vii) attempt to mint, tokenize, or create an additional cryptographic token representing the same Collectible, whether on or off of the Platform; (viii) falsify, misrepresent, or conceal the authorship of the Collectible; or (ix) otherwise utilize the Collectible for the Collector’s or any third party’s commercial benefit.

Users acknowledge that the Offerings and Tavern IP constitutes Tavern trade secrets and confidential information. Users will not use any such information to duplicate the Offerings or the results of the Offerings or to develop a similar Offerings, or to enable any third party to do any of the foregoing. Users shall not develop or use any alternative app or website that is substantially similar to the Offerings.

Nothing in this Terms of Service or the Offerings should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any of the Offerings displayed on the Offerings, without our prior written permission in each instance. All goodwill generated from the use of Tavern Trademarks will inure to our exclusive benefit.
4. Copyright Infringement
A. Complaints
Tavern respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, you should notify Tavern of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below.
Tavern will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement. A notification of claimed copyright infringement should be emailed to Tavern’s Copyright Agent [email protected] (Subject line: “Tavern DMCA Takedown Request”).
To be effective, the notification must be in writing and contain the following information:
(i) an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
(ii) a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
(iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Platform, with enough detail that we may find it on the Platform;
(iv) your address, telephone number, and email address;
(v) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law;
(vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.
B. Counter-Notice
If you believe your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to upload and use the content in your User Content, you may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
(i) your physical or electronic signature;
(ii) identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
(iii) a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content;
(iv) your name, address, telephone number, and email address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Tavern’s choosing and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, Tavern will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
C. Repeat Infringers
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, Tavern has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Tavern’s sole discretion, Users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Tavern may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Platform and/or terminate the memberships of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
D. Additional Agreements
Creators expressly agree to refund to the Collector and/or Tavern the entire portion of Fees received from the sale of a Collectible that was subsequently removed from the Site pursuant to an effective DMCA request to which the Creator failed to timely submit an effective DMCA Counter-Notification. Tavern will not be held liable to any User for removing allegedly infringing works from the Platform or otherwise fulfilling its legal obligations under the DMCA.
Creators, Collectors, and all Users expressly agree to cooperate and timely respond to Tavern’s investigations, requests, and inquiries related to DMCA disputes or allegations of infringement. Users agree to initiate a “burn” transaction upon Tavern’s request for Collectible that have been permanently removed from the Platform pursuant to a valid DMCA Take-Down Notice, or that are otherwise alleged to be infringing.
5. Beta Functionality
Certain features offered by Tavern may be offered while still in “beta” form (“Beta Features”). Tavern will utilize best efforts to identify the Beta Features. By accepting these Terms or using the Beta Features, you understand and acknowledge that the Beta Features are being provided as a “Beta” version and made available on an “As Is” or “As Available” basis. The Beta Features may contain bugs, errors, and other problems. YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS AND ALL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR USE OF THE BETA FEATURES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY INTERNET ACCESS FEES, BACK-UP EXPENSES, COSTS INCURRED FOR THE USE OF YOUR DEVICE AND PERIPHERALS, AND ANY DAMAGE TO ANY EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, INFORMATION OR DATA. In addition, we are not obligated to provide any maintenance, technical, or other support for the Beta Features.
6. Risks, Disclaimers and Limitations of Liability
A. Indemnity and Release
You agree to release, indemnify and hold Tavern and its affiliates and their officers, employees, directors and agents (collectively, “Indemnitees”) harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, rights, claims, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Platform, any User Content, your connection to the Platform, your violation of these Terms of Service or your violation of any rights of another. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will have no obligation to indemnify or hold harmless any Indemnitee from or against any liability, losses, damages or expenses incurred as a result of any action or inaction of such Indemnitee. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.” If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine.
B. Disclaimer of Warranties
Platform transactions, including but not limited to primary sales, secondary market sales, listings, offers, bids, acceptances, and other operations utilize experimental smart contract and blockchain technology, including non-fungible tokens, cryptocurrencies, consensus algorithms, and decentralized or peer-to-peer networks and systems. Users acknowledge and agree that such technologies are experimental, speculative, and inherently risky and may be subject to bugs, malfunctions, timing errors, hacking and theft, or changes to the protocol rules of the Ethereum blockchain (i.e., "forks"), which can adversely affect the smart contracts and may expose you to a risk of total loss, forfeiture of your digital currency or Digital Artwork, or lost opportunities to buy or sell Digital Artwork. YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE PLATFORM IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. TAVERN EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
TAVERN MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT (I) THE PLATFORM WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, (II) THE PLATFORM WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE, (III) THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE PLATFORM WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE, OR (IV) THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, PLATFORMS, INFORMATION, OR OTHER MATERIAL PURCHASED OR OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE PLATFORM WILL MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
C. Limitation of Liability
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT TAVERN WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS IN VALUE OF ANY DIGITAL ARTWORK, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF TAVERN HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, RESULTING FROM: (I) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE PLATFORM; (II) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND PLATFORMS RESULTING FROM ANY DIGITAL ARTWORK, GOODS, DATA, INFORMATION OR PLATFORMS PURCHASED OR OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH OR FROM THE PLATFORM; (III) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (IV) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE PLATFORM; OR (V) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE PLATFORM. IN NO EVENT WILL TAVERN TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES OR CAUSES OF ACTION EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID TAVERN IN THE LAST SIX (6) MONTHS, OR, IF GREATER, TEN DOLLARS ($10).
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OR EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU OR BE ENFORCEABLE WITH RESPECT TO YOU. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY PORTION OF THE PLATFORM OR WITH THESE TERMS OF PLATFORM, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USE OF THE PLATFORM.
IF YOU ARE A USER FROM NEW JERSEY, THE FOREGOING SECTIONS TITLED “DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES” AND “LIMITATION OF LIABILITY” ARE INTENDED TO BE ONLY AS BROAD AS IS PERMITTED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY. IF ANY PORTION OF THESE SECTIONS IS HELD TO BE INVALID UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY, THE INVALIDITY OF SUCH PORTION SHALL NOT AFFECT THE VALIDITY OF THE REMAINING PORTIONS OF THE APPLICABLE SECTIONS.

References, links or referrals to or connections with or reliance on third-party resources, products, services or content, including smart contracts developed or operated by third parties, may be provided to Users in connection with the Offerings. In addition, third parties may offer promotions related to the Offerings. Tavern does not endorse or assume any responsibility for any activities of or resources, products, services, content or promotions owned, controlled, operated or sponsored by third parties. If Users access any such resources, products, services or content or participate in any such promotions, Users do so solely at their own risk.

User further acknowledges and agrees that Tavern shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such resources, products, services, content or promotions from third parties.
I. Certain Uses and Risks of Blockchain Technology
(i) Tavern utilizes experimental cryptographic technologies and blockchain technologies, including tokens, cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, “smart contracts,” consensus algorithms, voting systems and distributed, decentralized or peer-to-peer networks or systems in performing the Offerings. Each User acknowledges and agrees that such technologies are novel, experimental, and speculative, and that therefore there is significant uncertainty regarding the operation and effects and risks thereof and the application of existing law thereto.
(ii) The technology utilized in delivering the Offerings depends on public peer-to-peer networks such as Ethereum that are not under the control or influence of Tavern and are subject to many risks and uncertainties. Such technologies, which Tavern may have limited or no ability to change, other than ceasing to support certain “smart contracts” and adding support for new “smart contracts”. Users are solely responsible for the safekeeping of the private key associated with the blockchain address used to participate in the Offerings. Tavern will not be able to restore or issue any refund in respect of any Collectibles due to lost private keys. If a User is not able to spend or use a Collectible due to loss or theft of the corresponding private key or otherwise, a User will be unable to exercise their rights with respect to such Collectible.
(iii) Collectibles and other digital assets relevant to the Platform depend on the smart contracts deployed to various blockchains, some of which may be coded or deployed by persons other than Tavern. Once deployed, the code of smart contracts cannot be modified. In the event that the smart contracts are adversely affected by malfunctions, bugs, defects, malfunctions, hacking, theft, attacks, negligent coding or design choices, or changes to the protocol rules of the blockchain, Users may be exposed to a risk of total loss and forfeiture of all Collectibles and other relevant digital assets. Tavern assumes no liability or responsibility for any of the foregoing matters, except as otherwise expressly provided by these Terms or required by applicable law.
(iv) The fiat-denominated prices and value in public markets of assets such as ETH, NFTs, and Collectibles have historically been subject to dramatic fluctuations and are highly volatile. As relatively new products and technologies, blockchain-based assets are not widely accepted as a means of payment for goods and services. A significant portion of demand for these assets is generated by speculators and investors seeking to profit from the short- or long-term holding of blockchain assets. The market value of any ETH, NFT, Collectibles may decline below the price for which a User acquires such asset through the Platform on any other platform. User acknowledges and agrees that the costs and speeds of transacting with cryptographic and blockchain-based systems such as Ethereum are variable and may increase or decrease dramatically at any time, resulting in prolonged inability to access or use any ETH, NFTs, Collectibles or other digital assets associated with the Platform.
(v) Blockchain technologies and digital assets are subject to many legal and regulatory uncertainties, and the Platform, NFTs, and Collectibles could be adversely impacted by one or more regulatory or legal inquiries, actions, suits, investigations, claims, fines or judgments, which could impede or limit the ability of User to continue the use and enjoyment of such assets and technologies.
(vi) Cryptography is a progressing field. Advances in code cracking or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers may present risks to blockchains, the Platform, NFTs, Collectibles, including the theft, loss or inaccessibility thereof.

The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court, agency or other governmental authority, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all Disputes.
(ii) 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.

C. Arbitration Procedures
Tavern or any User 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, for cases located in the United States, 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. Tavern will seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration if 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.
D. Seat of Arbitration
The seat of arbitration shall be determined by Tavern. 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 Tavern may opt to transfer the venue of any arbitration hearing to any location of its choosing in the event that it agrees to pay any additional fees or costs a User may reasonably incur as a result of the change in venue, as determined by the arbitrator, and, subject to the foregoing, a User hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in the location of Tavern’s choosing 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.
E. 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.
F. Class Action Waiver
(i) No Class Actions Permitted
All Users hereby agree that any arbitration or other permitted action with respect to any Dispute shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the Users expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. USERS SHALL BRING CLAIMS AGAINST TAVERN OTHER ONLY IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
(ii) 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 Section 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 the location of Tavern’s choosing 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.
