Risk – NFTs

You acknowledge and agree that there are inherent risks associated with Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs)and that such risks extend to your use of the Services. These risks include, but are not limited to, the failure of hardware, software or internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction and the risk of unauthorized access to your Account. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the risks involved with NFTs, their protocols and networks. Use of the Services does not remove these risks. Inkblok is not responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays when using the Services, however they may be caused.

You acknowledge that an NFT has no inherent value nor does Inkblok or any third party promise that an NFT has or will ever have any specific value. Transactions can take time to be confirmed and may, in some cases, not be completed. In no event will Inkblok be liable to you or to any third party for any of the foregoing.

If the Services post a dollar value in association with a specific NFT, such posting shall not constitute a representation as to the actual or projected value of such asset. Instead, such posting constitutes either: (i) the potential value attributed to the NFT by another User; or (ii) Third Party Content published to the Site or Account for your general information only, and you should not rely on such posting for any financial decision. You agree that it is your responsibility to independently ascertain the value of your NFTs, without relying on the Services. Inkblok is not, itself, offering to purchase or sell any NFTs from you or to you under this Agreement. Inkblok only offers Services to generate and post a digital signature of any file you have chosen for that sole purpose onto the blockchain. You agree that you shall not make any claim against Inkblok that alleges, in whole or in part, that any NFT has anything more than nominal value.

INKBLOK IS NOT RESPONSIBLE AND SHALL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR THE PROVENANCE, CONTENT, OWNERSHIP,AUTHENTICITY OR ANY OTHER CHARACTERISTIC OF THE FILE(S) YOU CHOOSE TO USEINKBLOK SERVICES ON. INKBLOK ONLY OFFERS SERVICES TO GENERATE AND POST A DIGITAL SIGNATURE OF ANY FILE YOU HAVE CHOSENT FOR THAT SOLE PURPOSE ONTO THE BLOCKCHAIN. INKBLOK SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY AND USER SHALL FULLY INDEMNIFY INKBLOK FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES, LIABILITIES, COSTS, EXPENSES, DEMANDS, CHARGES AND CLAIMS OF ANY KIND RELATED TO THE PROVENANCE, CONTENT, OWNERSHIP, AUTHENTICITY OR ANY OTHER CHARACTERISITICS OF THE FILE(S) USER HAS CHOSEN TO USE INKBLOK SERVICES ON.

You understand and accept that there are also inherent risks associated with using any NFTs network, including Approved Networks. These risks include, but are not limited to, unanticipated changes to the network protocol or unknown vulnerabilities which may include or result in underlying technology attacks. Other possible risks may include forks or rollbacks of NFTs, networks, or blockchains. Inkblok has no control over any Approved Networks and will not be responsible for any loss you suffer when you transact via any Approved Network.

Services

The Services include the right, subject to the terms of this Agreement, to:

  • use the Site to access the Account and Services;
  • use an Account, described in greater detail above;
  • cause Inkblok to send and receive User Data to and from PSW Provider and other Third Party Servicers.

Transactions

The Services allow Users to engage in a variety of Transactions.

Transactions are subject to the following rules and disclaimers, without limitation:

Inkblok may deemany Transaction performed in violation of any of the foregoing to be void ab initio.

If you fail to adhere to the terms of this Agreement (including, without limitation, the foregoing rules), you understand and agree as follows: (i) that such failure may result in the permanent loss of your NFTs or Fiat (for which Inkblok shall have no liability); and (ii) that Inkblok reserves the right to confiscate any NFTs or Fiat purchased or acquired in a manner not expressly permitted by this Agreement, without notice or liability to you.

Inkblok Regulatory Status

Inkblok is a hosted NFT service that is integrated with third parties who provide Fiat and Stablecoin custodial services directly to User, including the PSW Provider.

Inkblok is not registered with the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC) or U.S. Department of the Treasury Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) as a money services business.

Inkblok is not a bank. There is no FDIC insurance on NFTs. User acknowledges that NFTs have no intrinsic value. Fiat or Stablecoin balances, if any, are not held by Inkblok.

The Services maybe unavailable or subject to certain restrictions in certain states or jurisdictions at the sole discretion of Inkblok without prior notice to you and without your consent.

Third Party Servicers

If User has a User PSW, then Inkblok shall share User Data with the PSW Provider and also retrieve User Data from PSW Provider. Such exchanges of information shall be in furtherance of instructions given by User through the Account and may result in Transactions.

User also authorizes Inkblok to send and receive User Data to and from other Third Party Servicers.

If User authorizes Inkblok to take instructions from User, or in respect of an Account, via a Third Party Servicer, then such instructions shall be deemed delivered to Inkblok by User directly.

User represents that each Third Party Servicer is party to a Third Party Servicer Agreement with User and that User assumes exclusive responsibility for acts and omissions of all Third Party Servicers whether under the Third Party Servicer Agreement, with respect to User Data or otherwise. The use of a Third Party Servicer does not relieve User of any of its responsibilities or obligations under this Agreement. User is liable for any and all fees charged by Third Party Servicers. Unless indicated to the contrary in the Account, Fees for Services do not include fees applicable under Third Party Servicer Agreements.

Personal Information Consent

On sign-up for the Services and at other times throughout the term of this Agreement, as a condition to accessing the Services, User shall provide User KYC Information to Inkblok for purposes of verifying User identity, implementing the requirements of the AML Program and monitoring the User, Account and Transactions for suspicious activity. These identity verifications and screening procedures may include, but are not limited to, detection of money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other financial crime, checking the information you provide against the anti-terrorism financing list, maintained by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (available athttp://www.osfi-bsif.gc.ca/Eng/fi-if/amlc-clrpc/atf-fat/Pages/default.aspx), pursuant to subsection 83.05(1) of the Canadian Criminal Code (the Regulations Implementing the United Nations Resolutions on the Suppression of Terrorism and United Nations Al-Qaida and Taliban Regulations) or Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons list maintained by the United States Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the United States Department of Commerce Denied Persons list, or any other similar list issued by any United States governmental authority or any other Regulator having jurisdiction under Applicable Law prohibiting or limiting business activities with any person.

User authorizes Inkblok to, directly or through third parties, make inquiries and take any other actions Inkblok deems reasonably necessary to verify User identity, and the information User has provided. User acknowledges and agrees that such inquiries will result in User KYC Information being disclosed to credit reference and fraud prevention or financial crime agencies and services. Where Inkblok is not entirely satisfied that it has verified User identity, it reserves the right to limit User access to some or all Services.

User consents to Inkblok collecting, storing, processing and disclosing User KYC Information and other User Data as required to perform the Services and in accordance with the Privacy Policy and AML Program.

Unacceptable use or behavior

User alone is responsible for User actions, conduct, and behavior while using the Services. User shall not:

You authorize Inkblok to instruct PSW Provider to release the amount of Fees, or other amounts of which you are liable hereunder, to Inkblok from the External Wallet maintained by your PSW Provider.

Inkblok may make third party products or services available via the Site or otherwise through the Services. Such third parties, including PSW Provider, may charge fees for their services. Inkblok is not responsible for the fees charged by any such third parties.
