SmartMedia Labs Terms of Use

Last Modified: May 9, 2022

Acceptance of the Terms of Use

These terms of use are entered into by and between you and SmartMedia Labs, Inc. (“SmartMedia”, “we”, “our” or “us”). The following terms and conditions (these “Terms of Use”), govern your access to and use of the SmartMedia website(s), platform, SmartMedia application which includes wallet functions (“SmartMedia App”), APIs and marketplace, including any other software, tools, content, features, functionalities, and services offered on, through or in connection with the website, platform and marketplace (collectively, the “Service”).

The Service may also allow you to buy, receive, sell, transfer, trade, exchange or display non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”), which may be implemented on the SmartMedia marketplace which may or may not use blockchain to maintain a record of the transaction (“SM Marketplace”); if it uses a blockchain to record a record of the transaction it will be on one of the designated Supported Blockchain. The list of Supported Blockchains is found at Exhibit A and incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein, which may be modified from time to time. Art means any artwork (whether or not animated), video, graphics, photographs, music, images, designs, logos, taglines, and drawings that are included in or linked to the NFT (“Art”). The combination of the NFT and the Art is defined as the “Acquired NFT”.  These Terms of Use also set out your rights and responsibilities when using the Service for transactions in such Acquired NFT.

For purposes of these Terms of Use, “user”, “you”, and “your” means you as the user of the Service.  If you use the Service as an individual, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age or older if the age of lawful capacity to form binding legal contracts is older in your jurisdiction of residence.  If you use the Service on behalf of a company or other entity, then “you” includes you and that company or entity, and you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to these Terms of Use, and you agree to these Terms of Use on the entity’s behalf.

BY CLICKING ON THE “I ACCEPT” BUTTON, COMPLETING THE ACCOUNT REGISTRATION PROCESS, USING OUR SERVICES AND/OR OBTAINING ACQUIRED NFTS, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF USE AND ALL OF THE TERMS INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, you may not access or use the Service or acquire the Acquired NFTs.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY, AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES, AND OBLIGATIONS. IN ADDITION, THESE TERMS OF USE INCLUDE A MANDATORY ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER THAT (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTIONS) REQUIRE ANY DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND US TO BE RESOLVED THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION RATHER THAN BY A JUDGE OR JURY IN COURT.

From time to time, we may provide additional terms for specific services we may provide, and such services are deemed part of the “Service” and shall also be subject to these Terms of Use.  The additional terms and conditions, made available with the relevant services, become part of your agreement with us if you use those services.  In the event of any conflict between these Terms of Use and any additional terms and conditions we may provide for a specific service, such additional terms and conditions shall control for that specific service.

Changes to the Terms of Use

We may revise and update these Terms of Use from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Service thereafter.  If we make changes to these Terms of Use, we will provide notice of such changes by changing the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms of Use and You are expected to check this page frequently so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you. By continuing to access or use the Service, you confirm your acceptance of the revised Terms of Use and all of the terms incorporated therein by reference.

The SmartMedia logo and any SmartMedia product or service names, logos, or slogans that may appear on the Service or elsewhere are trademarks of SmartMedia or our affiliates, and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without our prior written permission. In addition, the “look and feel” of the Service constitutes the service mark, trademark or trade dress of SmartMedia and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without our prior written permission.  Further, you are not permitted to use any metatags or other “hidden text” utilizing “SmartMedia” or any other name, trademark, product or service name of SmartMedia or our affiliates or licensors without our prior written permission.

All other third party trademarks, registered trademarks, and product or service names mentioned on the Service or contained in the Art associated with any NFTs displayed on the Service are the property of their respective owners and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of the applicable intellectual property rights holder.  Reference to any products, services, processes, materials, or other information by name, trademark, manufacturer, provider, supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply recommendation, sponsorship or endorsement by SmartMedia.

You are hereby granted a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, nonsublicensable and personal license to access and use the Service and Content; provided, however, that such license is subject to your compliance with these Terms of Use.

Ownership, License and Ownership Restrictions.

The Acquired NFTs are subject to acquisition terms between you and SmartMedia governing the use of the Acquired NFT (and the relevant Art), the Art and the benefits associated with a given Acquired NFT (“Acquisition Terms”) which are listed in the relevant Acquisition Terms for such Acquired NFT. You are solely responsible for reviewing such Acquisition Terms.

Auctions

NFTs may be purchased by fixed price or by auction.  When bidding in an auction for NFTs (“Auction”), you agree that: (a) you are making an irrevocable binding offer to purchase the Acquired NFT (which may only be retracted in limited circumstances set out below in the paragraph on bid cancellation or if otherwise permitted by law) and if you are the winning bidder, your bid is a legally binding contract to purchase the Acquired NFT except in certain limited circumstances set out below; (b) you are responsible for reading and understanding the entire Acquired NFT listing and your rights under any Acquisition Terms that accompanies the listing; (c) you will not take any actions that directly or indirectly manipulate the bid or the bidding process and that no shill bidding is permitted; and (d) you will not bid on any Acquired NFT which violates any law, rule or regulation to which you are subject and that if you do so your bid is considered null and void. The winning bid will be the bid that is the highest   amount in the declared currency (which could be dollars or a particular cryptocurrency) designated in the Auction at the time the Auction closes. Auction closing times are approximate, and SmartMedia reserves the right to close an Auction early or later (including, without limitation, if we receive a bid prior to closing time for any Auction) than the scheduled time or to cancel an Auction in its entirety for any reason.

Each bid is a legally binding offer and you may not cancel or retract your bid once placed.  However, in the event (a) you accidently entered the wrong bid amount due to a typographical error (e.g., decimal point in the wrong place) and you realize your error before bidding closes or (b) if the listing description of the Acquired NFT materially changes after you have placed your bid, then in each case you may make a request to us to retract your bid.  If this occurs, you must contact us immediately upon realization of your error or the material modification, and in all cases if your bid was placed within the last twelve (12) hours of the Auction, you must contact us within one (1) hour of placing the erroneous bid.  We cannot guarantee that you will be able to retract your bid and any retraction is granted in SmartMedia’s sole discretion.

In the event an Acquired NFT is listed at an incorrect price due to typographical error or with an error in pricing, availability or other information, SmartMedia will have the right to cancel the Auction (and corresponding order), whether or not the order has been confirmed or you have been identified as the winning bidder and payment has been made.  If you have already made the payment for the Acquired NFT and the Auction is cancelled as provided in this paragraph, your sole and exclusive remedy is to have SmartMedia refund any such charges within a commercially reasonable period of time after cancellation.

In addition, we may make changes to information about price, availability or other attributes of the Acquired NFT without notice.  We also may require additional verifications or other information prior to the acceptance and/or fulfillment of any winning bid.  Your receipt of any acknowledgement of a winning bid from us does not signify our acceptance of your bid, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell.  It also is your responsibility to ascertain and obey all applicable local, state, federal and international laws (including minimum age requirements) in regard to the possession, use and sale of any item purchased from any auction.  By placing a bid you represent that the Acquired NFTs ordered are legal to possess and use where you intend to possess and use them and will be possessed or used only in a lawful manner, in accordance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, including copyright law.

Transfers of an Acquired NFT which you approve on the SmartMedia App will be sent to your SmartMedia App address and recorded on the SM Marketplace and in some cases may be recorded on a Supported Blockchain.  If the transfer is recorded on SM Marketplace without use of a blockchain, the records of the SM Marketplace shall be conclusive evidence for the purposes of these Terms of Use of the current owner of an Acquired NFT; if the transfer is recorded on the relevant Supported Blockchain, such recordation shall be conclusive evidence for the purposes of these Terms of Use of the current owner of an Acquired NFT. All transfers are final when approved. The SM Marketplace enables peer to peer sales and trading of NFTs in the SmartMedia App with other users of the SmartMedia App. Any such transfers are subject to the relevant Acquisition Terms for the NFT and are final when approved by you on the SmartMedia App.

User Contributions

With respect to the content, digital artwork, images, files, or other materials you create, submit, upload or display through the Service or share with other users or recipients (collectively, “User Content”), you represent and warrant that you own all right, title and interest in and to such User Content, including, without limitation, all copyrights and rights of publicity contained therein. By creating, submitting, uploading, posting or displaying any User Content you hereby grant and will grant SmartMedia and its affiliated companies a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty free, fully paid up, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable license, with the right to sublicense through multiple tiers of sublicensees,  to copy, display, perform, distribute, make, use, sell modify and otherwise use your User Content in connection with the operation of the Service, our current or future business purposes, or the promotion, advertising or marketing thereof in any form, medium or technology now known or later developed.

We are not responsible or liable to any third party for the content or accuracy of any User Content posted by you or any other user of the Service.

Assumption of Risks

  • The Acquired NFTs are collectibles and not investments. They should be acquired for your personal use and not as an investment.
  • The value of an Acquired NFT is subjective and can be extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets or cryptocurrency could materially and adversely affect the Acquired NFTs, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot guarantee that any acquirers of Acquired NFTs will not lose money and we does not and cannot guarantee that any Acquired NFTs acquired will retain their original value. You acknowledge that you fully understand this subjectivity and volatility and that you may lose money. You agree to assume all risk associated with the use and value of the Acquired NFT.
  • You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your Acquired NFT transactions. SmartMedia is not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to Acquired NFT transactions.
  • Transfer of Acquired NFTs occur in the SM Marketplace. Some transfer of NFTs occur within the Supported Blockchain and not on this Service. For those NFTs, SmartMedia does not control the Supported Blockchain with which you are interacting and SmartMedia does not control certain smart contracts and protocols that may be integral to your ability to complete transactions on these Supported Blockchains.  Additionally, Supported Blockchains transactions are irreversible and SmartMedia has no ability to reverse any transactions on the Supported Blockchains.
  • There are risks associated with using an Internet and blockchain based products, including, but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your SmartMedia App or Account. You accept and acknowledge that SmartMedia will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Service, any blockchain network, or the Acquired NFTs.
  • There are risks associated with purchasing items associated with content created by third parties through peer-to-peer transactions, including but not limited to, the risks of purchasing counterfeit items, mislabeled items, items that are vulnerable to metadata decay, items on smart contracts with bugs, and items that may become untransferable. You represent and warrant that you have done sufficient research and investigation before making any decisions to purchase, sell, obtain, transfer, or otherwise interact with any Acquired NFTs or accounts.
  • A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of those ecosystems and related applications, and could therefore also negatively impact the potential utility or value of Acquired NFTs.
  • The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, non-fungible tokens, cryptocurrencies, tokens and other crypto-based items is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Service and the utility of Acquired NFTs.
  • The Service may rely on third-party platforms to perform the transactions for the Acquired NFTs. If we are unable to maintain a good relationship with such platform providers; if the terms and conditions or pricing of such platform providers change; if we violate or cannot comply with the terms and conditions of such platforms; or if any of such platforms loses market share or falls out of favor or is unavailable for a prolonged period of time, access to and use of the Service may suffer.

Disclaimer of Warranties

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

All matters relating to the Service and these Terms of Use and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Colorado  without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Colorado or any other jurisdiction).

Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms of Use or the Service that is not subject to arbitration shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Colorado, in each case located in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado and the Colorado County Court for the 2nd Judicial District (Colorado), respectively. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.

 

Arbitration Agreement and Class Action Waiver

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.

This section does not govern disputes between users or between users and third parties.  SmartMedia does not provide dispute resolution services for such disputes or disagreements and the parties must resolve those disputes directly.

Binding Arbitration.  You agree that any and all disputes, controversies or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and us, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use (including any alleged breach thereof), your access to or use of the Service, any products sold or distributed through the Service, or any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, including threshold questions of the arbitrability of such dispute, controversy, or claim, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that (i) you or SmartMedia may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify, the claims remain only in such court, and the claims remain on an individual, non-representative, and non-class basis; and (ii) you or SmartMedia may seek injunctive or equitable relief in court of proper jurisdiction for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). You agree that, by entering into these Terms of Use, you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.

Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions.  YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.

Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution.  You and SmartMedia both agree to engage in good-faith efforts to resolve disputes prior to either party initiating an arbitration, small claims court proceeding, or equitable relief for intellectual property infringement. You must initiate this dispute resolution process by sending a letter describing the nature of your claim and desired resolution to: SmartMedia Labs, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 201 Main Street, Suite 102, Carbondale, CO 81623. If the parties do not resolve the dispute within thirty (30) calendar days after the letter is received by us, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to us should be sent to SmartMedia Labs, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 201 Main Street, Suite 102, Carbondale, CO 81623 (the “Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by us or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or we are entitled.

Arbitration Procedures.  Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/ as may be updated from time to time. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Use as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under these Terms of Use and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.

Location of Arbitration. Unless we and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.

Arbitration Costs.  Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.

Confidentiality.  All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.

Severability. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the section entitled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of the section above entitled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of these Terms of Use will continue to apply. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of these Terms of Use is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and the Terms of Use shall be enforceable as so modified.

Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms of Use to the contrary, we agree that if SmartMedia makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Service, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Use (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Use).

30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out via email at arbitrationoptout@smartmeidatech.io with subject line LEGAL OPT OUT. The notice must be sent within 30 days of your first use of the Service, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we will also not be bound by them.

Limitation on Time to File Claims

ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OF USE OR THE SERVICE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

Waiver of Rights

No waiver by SmartMedia of any term or condition set out in these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of SmartMedia to assert a right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of SmartMedia.  Except as expressly set forth in these Terms of Use, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms of Use will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms of Use or otherwise.

Interpretation

The language in these Terms of Use will be interpreted as to its fair meaning, and not strictly for or against any party.

Export Laws

You agree that you will not export or re-export, directly or indirectly, the Service, the Acquired NFTs and/or other information or materials provided by SmartMedia under these Terms of Use, to any country for which the United States or any other relevant jurisdiction requires any export license or other governmental approval at the time of export without first obtaining such license or approval. If (a) you are an individual, you agree that you are not and (b) if you are an entity, you agree that neither you nor any of your owners or investors or any of their directors, officers, employees, agents or affiliates acting on your behalf is: (i) related in any way to, the governments of, or any persons within, any country or jurisdiction under a U.S. embargo enforced by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), or any persons who are named on any list of sanctioned individuals or entities; (ii) (or has ever been) prohibited from the transaction pursuant to U.S. anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist, economic sanctions and asset control laws; and (iii) resident in a country or jurisdiction under a U.S. embargo enforced by OFAC, including the Crimea Region of Ukraine, Donsk, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Syria.

Injunctive Relief

You agree that a breach of these Terms of Use will cause irreparable injury to SmartMedia for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and SmartMedia shall be entitled to equitable relief in addition to any remedies it may have under these Terms of Use or at law, without a bond, other security, or proof of damages.

California Residents

If you are a California resident, in accordance with Cal. Civ. Code 1789.3, you may report complaints to the Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs by mail at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112, Sacramento, CA 95834 or by telephone at (800) 952-5210.

Survival

You agree and understand that all provisions of these Terms of Use which by their nature should survive the termination or expiration of these Terms of Use shall survive such termination or expiration and shall continue in full force and effect.  Termination will not limit any of SmartMedia’s other rights or remedies at law or in equity.

Entire Agreement

These Terms of Use (including the Acquisition Terms, relevant Sweepstakes Term of Use, if applicable, relevant Scavenger Hunt Terms of Use, if applicable, NFT Sweepstake Ownership Agreement, if applicable and Wallet TOU, together the “Other Agreements”) and our Privacy Policy constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between you and SmartMedia regarding the subject matter and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, regarding the subject matter. You may not assign any of your rights or obligations under these Terms of Use, by operation of law or otherwise, without SmartMedia’s prior written consent.  Any attempt by you to assign or transfer any of the rights and obligations under these Terms of Use, without such consent, will be null. SmartMedia may freely assign or transfer these Terms of Use without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms of Use will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.  In the case of a conflict between the terms of these Terms of Use and the Other Agreements, the terms of the relevant Other Agreement shall prevail over any conflicting terms of these Terms of Use with respect to Acquired NFTs.

Additional SmartMedia App Terms of Use  Relating to Wallet Functions (“Wallet TOU”)

As used throughout, Acquired  NFTs refers only to those NFTs listed as available through the Service. SmartMedia securely stores the relevant private keys, which are used to process transactions, in a combination of online and offline storage. As a result of SmartMedia security protocols, it may be necessary for SmartMedia to retrieve private keys or related information from offline storage in order to facilitate transfers of Acquired NFTs in accordance with your instructions, and you acknowledge that this may delay the initiation or crediting of such transfer of Acquired NFTs.

Limitations on Use of SmartMedia App. Under no circumstances should you attempt to use the your copy of the SmartMedia App to store, send, request, or receive any assets other than Acquired  NFTs. SmartMedia assumes no responsibility in connection with any attempt to use your copy of the SmartMedia App with digital assets that SmartMedia does not support.

Title Acquired NFTs.  Title to Acquired NFT (subject to these Terms of Use and provisions of the Acquisition Terms) shall at all times remain with you and shall not transfer to SmartMedia.
