Vee Friends NFT Terms of Use

Last revised: May 4, 2021

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) apply to your purchase, sale and display of Vee Friend non-fungible tokens (“VFNFTs”). Some purchases of VFNFTs may include special experience opportunities. Please view terms regarding such experiences here (“Experience Terms”). To the extent there is a conflict between these Terms and the Experience Terms, these Terms control.

These Terms are entered into between you and Vee Friends, LLC (“Company,” “we,” or “us”). These Terms expressly incorporate any other documents referenced herein (such as our Privacy Policy) and govern your access to and use of this site www.veefriends.com (the “Site”), as well as all content, functionality, and services offered on or through the Site, including the VFNFTs.

  1. Reviewing and Accepting These Terms

    Please read these Terms carefully, as they set out your rights and responsibilities when you use this Site to buy VFNFTs (the “Services”). When each VFNFT is sold for the first time, the agreement for sale is between the Company and the initial purchaser. If the initial purchaser decides to sell the VFNFT through this Site, then this Site serves only as a platform that facilitates transactions between a buyer and a seller and the Company is not a party to any agreement between such buyer and seller of VFNFTs or between any other users.

    All VFNFTs are stored on and accessible through the Ethereum blockchain. As such, the Company does not maintain the VFNFTs on this Site and, aside from transferring control of the VFNFT to the initial purchaser of the VFNFT, the Company has no control over the transfer, storage, ownership or maintenance of the VFNFT.

    When you connect your cryptocurrency wallet to the Site using a trusted service provide such as MetaMask or Wallet Connect, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms and all of the terms incorporated herein by reference. By agreeing to these Terms, you hereby certify that you are at least 18 years of age. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must not access or use the Site.

    Please note that Section 17 contains an arbitration clause and class action waiver. By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve all disputes through binding individual arbitration, which means that you waive any right to have the dispute decided by a judge or jury, and you waive any right to participate in collective action, whether that be a class action, class arbitration, or representative action. You have the ability to opt-out of this arbitration clause by sending us notice of your intent to do so within thirty (30) days of your initial agreement to these Terms.

    We reserve the right to change or modify these Terms at any time and in our sole discretion. You agree and understand that by accessing or using the Site following any change to these Terms, you are agreeing to the revised Terms and all of the terms incorporated therein by reference.

    Review the Terms each time you access the Site to ensure that you understand how the Terms apply to your activities on the Site.

  2. Linking Your Cryptocurrency Wallet

    When you link your cryptocurrency wallet, you understand and agree that you are solely responsible for maintaining the security of your wallet and your control over any wallet-related authentication credentials, private or public cryptocurrency keys, non-fungible tokens or cryptocurrencies that are stored in or are accessible through your wallet. Any unauthorized access to your cryptocurrency wallet by third parties could result in the loss or theft of VFNFTs and/or funds held in your wallet and any associated wallets, including any linked financial information such as bank account(s) or credit card(s). We are not responsible for managing and maintaining the security of your cryptocurrency wallet nor for any unauthorized access to or use of your cryptocurrency wallet.

  4. Terms of Sale

    By placing an order on the Site, you agree that you are submitting a binding offer to purchase an VFNFT or other Service. If you are the initial purchaser of a VFNFT or you are purchasing a Service, then all amounts due are to be paid to Vee Friends, LLC. If you are not the initial purchaser of a VFNFT, then amounts may be paid to the-then holder of the VFNFT. You also acknowledge and agree that Company receives 10% of every subsequent sale of a VFNFT (“Royalty”). For example, if you are the initial purchaser, and you sell a VFNFT for $100 to a subsequent purchaser, $10 will automatically be transferred to Company and you will receive $90. Company has the right collect Royalties for VFNFT sales in perpetuity and may use those funds in any manner Company sees fit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company has committed to donate 10% of all Royalties Company receives annually to a charity of Company’s choosing. The Company may make such payment at such time at it desires.

  9. Risks

    Please note the following risks in accessing, purchasing, selling or using VFNFTs: The price and liquidity of blockchain assets, including VFNFTs, are extremely volatile and may be subject to large fluctuations. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect VFNFTs, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of VFNFTs. VFNFTs are not legal tender and are not backed by any government. Transactions in VFNFTs may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. Some transactions in VFNFTs shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that you initiated the transaction. The value of VFNFTs may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange fiat currency or digital assets for VFNFTs, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular VFNFT should the market for that VFNFT disappear.

    You agree and understand that you are solely responsible for determining the nature, potential value, suitability, and appropriateness of these risks for yourself, and that we do not give advice or recommendations regarding VFNFTs, including the suitability and appropriateness of, and investment strategies for, VFNFTs. You agree and understand that you access and use this Site at your own risk; however, this brief statement does not disclose all of the risks associated with VFNFTs and other digital assets. You agree and understand that we will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using VFNFTs, however caused.

  14. Disputes and Arbitration Agreement

    Carefully read the following arbitration agreement ("Arbitration Agreement"). It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Vee Friends, LLC and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

    Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to your access or use of the Site, to any Services sold or distributed through the Site, including VFNFTs, or to any aspect of your relationship with Vee Friends, LLC will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or Vee Friends may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents).

    Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Corporation Service Company, 251 Little Falls Drive, Wilmington Delaware 19808. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Vee Friends will pay them for you. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or video conference or based on written submissions, or you may request to meet in-person for arbitration in New York City, New York. You agree that any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

    Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Vee Friends. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. And you agree that to the extent monetary or non-monetary remedy or relief is granted, such request for relief may be enforced as needed by any court of competent jurisdiction.

    Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND VEE FRIENDS HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Vee Friends are instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as otherwise indicated in this Section 14. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Arbitration Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.

    Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A OR COLLECTIVE CLASS BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any part of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then that claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought in the state or federal courts located in the State of New York. All other claims shall be arbitrated.

    30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to the following address: Vee Friends, LLC, 10 Hudson Yards, 25th Floor, New York, NY 10001, Attention Legal Department, within 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. You may also submit your decision to Contact@veefriends.com. Your notice must include your name and address, the cryptocurrency wallet address you used to transact on this Site (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.

  15. Severability.

    Except as provided herein, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

  16. Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Vee Friends.

  17. Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if Vee Friends makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing to us at the following address: Vee Friends, LLC, 10 Hudson Yards, 25th Floor, New York, NY 10001, Attention Legal Department

  18. Severability

    If any term, clause, or provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, then that term, clause, or provision shall be severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, cause, or provision, or any other terms, clause, or provision of these Terms.

  19. Entire Agreement

    These Terms comprise the entire agreement between you and us relating to your access to and use of the Site, Site Content and any VFNFTs you have purchased, and supersede any and all prior discussions agreements, and understandings of any kind. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of the parties and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
