You are responsible for reviewing any transaction, including verifying the identity, legality, and authenticity of any NFT or other collectible that you purchase from a creator using our services, and any related content.

4.Creating an Account
4.1. In order to create an account with us and use our services, you must use a third-party wallet provider authorized by us. However, we do not recommend or endorse any wallet provider, nor do we have any affiliation or connection. Your account will be associated with your wallet address; however, we allow users to add profile pictures or banners to their account.
4.2. When using our services with your wallet, you agree to comply with the terms and conditions of your wallet provider. We do not operate, maintain or have any ownership or control over your wallet, and we cannot retrieve or transfer any NFTs or other content from your wallet.
4.3. We are not responsible for any issues with your wallet and assume no liability in relation to it. You are responsible for protecting your account and wallet and not sharing your password or seed phrase with anyone else. We will never ask you to provide us with your wallet-related password or seed phrase. If your account or wallet is compromised or there are any issues, please contact your wallet provider immediately.
4.4. If there is any suspicious activity related to our services or your account or wallet, you must immediately contact us (here: launch@Club3.xyz).

(a) You are engaged in money laundering or any other illegal or fraudulent activity with your account;
(b) You provide us with false or misleading information;

(d) You are using robots or other forms of automation when using our services;
(e) Your wallet has been compromised;

5.Acceptable Use Policy
5.1. Your use of the service must comply with our Acceptable Use Policy (https://Club3.xyz/privacy), which forms part of these Terms.
5.2. We reserve the right to hide or remove any collectibles, NFTs, contracts, or any other items that are affected by any issues or that we believe, in our absolute discretion, violate our Acceptable Use Policy. You agree that this does not constitute a basis for any claims against us. Even if these items have been hidden or removed from our website or service, they can still be used on IPFS.
6.Smart Contracts and Creator Contracts
6.1. We provide template smart contracts for creators, which they can use in whole or in part to sell their collectibles. We are not a party to any smart contracts between you and a creator.
6.2. Once a collectible has been launched and minted, creators should not be able to modify the smart contract. However, we do not guarantee that creators will not modify the smart contract in unauthorized ways.
6.3. As smart contracts are computer programs, we may need and reserve the right to update, upgrade or replace any such smart contracts to add features or fix errors and/or require the migration of your NFTs to new smart contracts. In such cases, we will bear the deployment cost, and you will bear the migration cost (and its associated costs, such as gas).
6.4. The smart contract requires that all properties of the NFT be stored on IPFS. Adding data to IPFS creates a content identifier (CID), which includes the name and description of the NFT, as well as the collection it belongs to, a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) for identifying the image of the NFT, and other metadata information. Because each CID points to only one piece of content, no creator or third party should be able to replace or modify the content without breaking the link. Even if the creator or their collection disappears, the CID related to the NFT that you purchased should still be usable on IPFS. While storing NFTs on IPFS is relatively secure, it is not without risk, and you agree not to hold us liable or responsible for any data loss related to NFTs stored on IPFS.
6.5. The smart contract allows for transactions and displays ownership of the NFT. However, while you may own the NFT (which is represented on the blockchain), that ownership may be subject to licenses for intellectual property and other rights related to the NFT, which may be specified in the creator's terms. We do not guarantee that the NFTs sold on our website are unique, original, or have quality guarantees from the creator.
7.1. Our website, services, and all content or materials therein (including the "look and feel," "identity," "trademarks," "design," "text," "graphics," "images," "information," "data," "software," "sounds," and other files, as well as their arrangement) (Content) are owned by us or our affiliates or licensors. You may not copy, distribute, publicly display, create derivative works of the Content, or use the Content in any way, whether in whole or in part, or use any framing techniques, without our prior written consent.
7.2. You may interact with us by providing feedback, comments, and suggestions for improvements to our services or website (Feedback) through email or through platforms such as Twitter, Discord, or others. You hereby assign to us any rights, title, and interest you may have in any such Feedback and waive any moral rights in respect of such Feedback. You agree that we may use and disclose any such Feedback in our sole discretion without any compensation to you or attributing any such Feedback to you.
7.3. You are granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, and personal license to access and use our services and website, subject to compliance with these Terms. Any license or assignment of any rights in any NFT or collection is solely determined by the creator and subject to the creator's terms.
7.4. You hereby grant us a limited, non-exclusive license to use the representation of any NFT you purchase through our services for the purpose of advertising and promoting our website and/or services.

We reserve the right to remove any collection at any time without prior notice or agreement.
(d) We do not guarantee the accuracy, legality, completeness, or lawfulness of any information accessed through our Service, and we exclude any liability for the transmission or receipt of any material of any nature.

13.Risks of Blockchain Technology

(b) The value of any NFT is directly affected by the highly volatile price of cryptocurrencies. Fluctuations in cryptocurrency prices may have a substantial impact on the price of NFTs, and you should be aware that you may lose funds as a result.
(c) The value of NFTs is subjective and determined by the market. Lack of interest from the public or creators in any particular NFT may affect its price and potential utility, resulting in financial loss.
(d) The regulatory regime for blockchain technology is uncertain, and future laws and regulations may have an adverse effect on our service use as well as the price or utility of NFTs, subject to the regulations and laws to be enacted in the future in Hong Kong.
