IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING ARBITRATION FOR U.S. CUSTOMERS: WHEN YOU AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT YOU ARE AGREEING (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND CHAMPIONS ASCENSION DEVELOPER THROUGH BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT. PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY SECTION 15 “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” BELOW FOR DETAILS REGARDING ARBITRATION. HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF A JURISDICTION WHERE APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES, THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE IN SECTION 15 WILL NOT APPLY TO YOU BUT THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION 14 (GOVERNING LAW AND FORUM CHOICE) WILL APPLY INSTEAD.
1. Agreement to Terms. By purchasing a Champions Ascension NFT, you acknowledge that you have carefully read and agree to the terms of this Agreement. “Champions Ascension NFT” means a non-fungible token (“NFT”) that is on a blockchain and, as of its genesis issuance, is linked to a display of Champions Ascension Art. Each Champions Ascension NFT is a controllable electronic record recorded on the applicable blockchain. “Champions Ascension Art” means the digital art for the Champions Ascension NFT that is provided by and owned by the Champions Ascension Developer and is linked to the Champions Ascension NFT. This Agreement governs your participation in the initial sale and purchase on the Champions Ascension Website or any other platform the Champions Ascension Developer may choose (the “Website”), as well as any subsequent transactions between Transferors and Transferees (as defined below) on any other platform that facilitates a Subsequent Sale (as defined below). Each Champions Ascension NFT may be compatible with, or support entitlements within, one or more interactive entertainment applications offered by Champions Ascension Developer or a third party, and any such entitlements are not part of the NFT, but rather are part of the purchasing or licensing of such applications. Champions Ascension Developer has no obligation to you to maintain any such interactive entertainment applications for any length of time.
(b) Changes to the License Grant Terms. We may update the terms of the license grant to the Champions Ascension Art (and related items) (“License Grant Terms”) from time to time in our sole discretion. If we do, we’ll let you know by posting the updated License Grant Terms on the Website and/or may also send other communications. It’s important that you review the License Grant Terms whenever we update them, or when you purchase a Champions Ascension NFT. If you continue to participate in the sale and purchase of a Champions Ascension NFT after we have posted the updated License Grant Terms, it means that you accept and agree to the changes. If you don’t agree to be bound by the changes, you may not participate in the sale and purchase of a Champions Ascension NFT anymore.
2. Purchasing Champions Ascension NFT.
(a) Transactions Generally. You may participate in the sale and purchase of the Champions Ascension NFT by linking your digital wallet(s) on supported bridge extensions, which allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using a currency acceptable to us. Before purchasing a Champions Ascension NFT, we may ask you to download a supported electronic wallet extension and connect and unlock your digital wallets with that extension. Once you submit an order to sell or purchase a Champions Ascension NFT, your order is passed on to the applicable extension, which completes the transaction on your behalf.
YOU BEAR FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR VERIFYING THE IDENTITY, LEGITIMACY, AND AUTHENTICITY OF ANY CHAMPIONS ASCENSION NFTS YOU PURCHASE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. NOTWITHSTANDING INDICATORS AND MESSAGES THAT SUGGEST VERIFICATION, CHAMPIONS ASCENSION DEVELOPER MAKES NO CLAIMS ABOUT THE IDENTITY, LEGITIMACY, OR AUTHENTICITY OF CHAMPIONS ASCENSION NFTS.
(b) Transactions Are Conducted on the Blockchain. Champions Ascension Developer does not buy, sell or take custody or possession of any Champions Ascension NFT, nor does it act as an agent or custodian for any user under this Agreement. You acknowledge that Champions Ascension Developer does not take control or custody of any NFT or cryptocurrency at any time. If you elect to participate in the sale and purchase of any Champions Ascension NFT, any transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through the relevant blockchain network governing such Champions Ascension NFT. You will be required to make or receive payments exclusively through the cryptocurrency wallet you have connected to the Website and/or any other websites that facilitates Subsequent Sales. We will have no insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any transactions.

(a) If you acquire a Champions Ascension NFT, you own all personal property rights to that Champions Ascension NFT (e.g., the right to freely sell, transfer, or otherwise dispose of that Champions Ascension NFT). Such rights, however, do not include the ownership of the intellectual property rights in the Champions Ascension Art. Your purchase from the Champions Ascension Developer or purchase from any owner of Champions Ascension NFT originally produced by the Champions Ascension Developer does not constitute a financial investment. You are buying personal property rights to an electronic record linked to a piece of art and potential gaming asset that lives on the applicable blockchain.
(b) You represent and warrant that you will not transfer a Champions Ascension NFT in any Subsequent Sale to a Transferee that is (i) located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a terrorist-supporting country; or is (ii) listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties (“Prohibited Transferees”).

4. License of Champions Ascension Art.

The license in the prior sentence is non-transferrable, except that it will automatically transfer in connection with the transfer of the Champions Ascension NFT.

(c) Form of Payment.

(d) Gas Fees. By buying or selling a Champions Ascension NFT on the Website or any other platform, you agree to pay all applicable fees and, if applicable, you authorize the automatic deduction of such fees (including any transaction fees, or Gas Fees, as applicable) directly from your payments for the Initial Sale or Subsequent Sales. “Gas Fees” fund the network of computers that run the decentralized applicable blockchain network, meaning that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the applicable blockchain network. Neither Champions Ascension Developer nor a third party (e.g., a marketplace) have any insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor does Champions Ascension Developer or a third party (e.g., a marketplace) have the ability to reverse any transactions. Accordingly, Champions Ascension Developer and a third party (e.g., a marketplace) will have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any transactions of the Champions Ascension NFT that you engage in.

(i) You further acknowledge and agree that all Subsequent Sales will be effected on the applicable blockchain, the blockchain network governing the Champions Ascension NFT, and you will be required to make or receive payments exclusively through your cryptocurrency wallet.
(ii) Without limitation of any other termination rights, Champions Ascension Developer may suspend or terminate the license to the Champions Ascension Art if it has a reasonable basis for believing that you have engaged in an off-chain sale of the Champions Ascension NFT, or otherwise engaged in any off-chain transactions for the purchase or sale of the Champions Ascension NFT without making the applicable Royalty Payment. You, and all subsequent Transferees, shall be responsible for paying the Royalty Payment associated with the Subsequent Sale purchase price, regardless of whether such purchase price is fulfilled on-chain, off-chain, or in a combination of the foregoing.
