Additionally, Creator’s retain any trademark to digital Content, if the Creator owns the copyright in the first place.

Creator’s agree to license the rights to: 1) copy the digital Content version associated with the NFT and 2) display the digital Content connected to a NFT on social media.

When Creators upload digital Content, as mentioned, and Mint an associated NFT, they give the Purchaser a license to that copy of the digital Content version and to transfer the NFT.

Collection Owner Rights

When you purchase any Hot Drops content, you own the Smart Contract associated with it. Ownership of an NFT is mediated entirely by the Smart Contract, and the Ethereum, Polygon, or other Network, unless the Buyer and Seller enter into a separate agreement. NFTs are on the Ethereum, Polygon, or other blockchain, whichever in being used at the time of Minting, and are a record of ownership of the digital Content the NFT is associated with. NFTs are not ownership of the Digital Content itself. Digital Content uploaded is stored on the Interplanetary File System (IPFS) and if the User who uploaded the digital Content owned the copyright to that digital content, they will continue to own the portions of trademark and copyright to the digital Content even after the NFT is transferred. A content Owner owns the Smart Contract associated with the Collection, but does not own any digital Content or the associated NFT that are linked to the Smart Contract, unless the Collection Owner is also a Creator and Minted into the Smart Contract.

SECTION 7 – ASSUMPTION OF RISK

(i) Value and Volatility. The prices of collectible blockchain assets are extremely volatile and subjective and collectible blockchain assets have no inherent or intrinsic value. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your NFTs, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. Each NFT has no inherent or intrinsic value. We cannot guarantee that any NFTs purchased will retain their original value, as the value of collectibles is inherently subjective and factors occurring outside of the Hot Dops ecosystem may materially impact the value and desirability of any particular NFT.

(ii) Tax Calculations. You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your NFT-related transactions. We are not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions on the website.

(iii) Use of Blockchain. The website does not store, send, or receive NFTs. This is because NFTs exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the App’s supporting blockchain in the Ethereum and/or Polygon networks. Any transfer of NFTs occurs within the supporting blockchain in the Ethereum and/or Polygon networks, and not on the website.

(iv) Inherent Risks with Internet Currency. There are 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 electronic wallet. You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Ethereum and/or Polygon Networks, however caused.

(v) Regulatory Uncertainty. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Hot Drops ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of your Drops and you acknowledge that Hot Drops has no liability for any issues that arise from such regulatory changes.

(vi) Software Risks. Upgrades to the Ethereum and/or Polygon Networks, a hard fork in the Ethereum and/or Polygon Networks, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the Ethereum and/or Polygon Networks may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using the Ethereum and/or Polygon Networks’ NFT standard, including the Hot Drops ecosystem.

SECTION 8 – FORCE MAJEURE

(i) Force Majeure Events. We will not be liable or responsible to the you, nor be deemed to have defaulted under or breached these Terms, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any of these Terms, when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from the following force majeure events (“Force Majeure Event(s)”): (a) acts of God; (b) flood, fire, earthquake, epidemics, pandemics, including the 2019 novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), tsunami, explosion; (c) war, invasion, hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot or other civil unrest; (d) government order, law, or action; (e) embargoes or blockades in effect on or after the date of this agreement; (f) strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances; (g) shortage of adequate or suitable Internet connectivity, telecommunication breakdown or shortage of adequate power or electricity; and (h) other similar events beyond our control.

(ii) Performance During Force Majeure Events. If we suffer a Force Majeure Event, we will use reasonable efforts to promptly notify you of the Force Majeure Event, stating the period of time the occurrence is expected to continue. We will use diligent efforts to end the failure or delay and ensure the effects of such Force Majeure Event are minimized.
