SECTION 2 - RELICS
Relics.xyz is a marketplace whereby we sell non-fungible tokens (NFTs) containing digital art (i.e. music, video, visual art, etc.). These NFTs are called “Relics”. Users of the website wishing to purchase Relics must have a metamask.io account and Ethereum wallet. Users are entirely responsible for the safety and management of their own Ethereum wallet and validating all transactions and contracts generated by this website before approval. As the Relics NFT smart contract runs on the Ethereum network, there is no ability to undo, reverse or restore any transactions.
Each Relic is an NFT on the Ethereum blockchain. When you purchase a Relic, you own the underlying NFT, and are granted a royalty-free license use the digital art contained therein as described below. Ownership of the Relic is mediated entirely by the smart contract and the Ethereum Network: at no point may we seize, freeze or otherwise modify the ownership of any Relic.
If you elect to purchase a Relic through our website, any financial transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through the Ethereum network. We 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 that you engage or any other transactions that you conduct via the Ethereum network.
Ethereum requires the payment of a transaction fee (“Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network. The Gas Fee funds the network of computers that run the decentralized Ethereum network. This means that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction.
Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, we grant you a worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy and display the purchased Relic, and digital art contained therein, solely for the following purposes: (i) for your own personal, non-commercial use; (ii) for non-commercial purposes as part of a marketplace that permits the purchase and sale of your Relic NFT, provided that the marketplace cryptographically verifies each Relic owner’s rights to display the digital art contained the Relic to ensure that only the actual owner can display such digital art; or (iii) for non-commercial purposes as part of a third party website or application, which along with Monstercat, permits the inclusion, involvement or participation of Relics, provided that the website/application cryptographically verifies each Relic owner’s rights to display the Relic’s digital art, and provided that the digital art is no longer visible once the owner of the Relic leaves the website/application.
In addition to the above, you accept, acknowledge and assume each of the following risks:
- To the extent that you sell your Relic NFT, please be aware that the prices of NFTs are extremely volatile and fluctuations in the prices of other NFTs and impact the price of your Relic both positively and negatively. Given the volatility, NFTs such as Relics should not be considered an investment. You assume all risks in that connection.
- Ownership of a Relic confers ownership of the Relic only. Accordingly, no information on this website (or any other documents mentioned therein) is or may be considered to be advice or an invitation to enter into an agreement for any investment purpose. Further, nothing on this website qualifies or is intended to be an offering of securities in any jurisdiction nor does it constitute an offer or an invitation to purchase shares, securities or other financial products. Due to the artistic nature of the project, we have not been registered with or approved by any regulator in any jurisdiction. It remains your sole responsibility to assure that the purchase of the Relic is in compliance with laws and regulations in your jurisdiction.
- You assume all risks associated with using an Internet-based currency, 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 wallet.
- NFTs, cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology are relatively new and the regulatory landscape is unsettled. New regulations could negatively impact such technologies impacting the value for your Relic. You understand and accept all risk in that regard.
- You assume all responsibility for any adverse effects of disruptions or other issues impacting Ethereum or the Ethereum platform.
