7. GOVERNING LAW
These Terms and your use of the Site and the Smart Contracts are governed by and constructed in accordance with the laws of Gibraltar applicable to agreements made and to be entirely performed in Gibraltar, without regard to its conflicts of law principles.
8. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
8.1 Informal negotiations
To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms (each a “Dispute" and collectively, the “Disputes") brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party" and collectively, the “Parties"), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating the arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.
8.2 Binding Arbitration
If a Party is unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Disputes (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitration compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration shall take place in Chicago, Illinois. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in Chicago, Illinois (U.S.A.), and the Parties hereby consent to and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non-conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts.
In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site and the Smart Contracts be commenced more than one (1) year after the cause of the action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed or jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
8.3 Exceptions to the Informal Negotiations and Arbitration
The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provision concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Dispute seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, and of the intellectual property rights of a Party, (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal and unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable, and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed or jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SITE AND THE SMART CONTRACTS ARE AT YOUR SOLE RISK, AND THAT THE SITE AND THE SMART CONTRACTS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

YOU ACCEPT THE INHERENT SECURITY RISKS OF PROVIDING INFORMATION OVER THE INTERNET AND AGREE THAT WE HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY BREACH OF SECURITY UNLESS IT IS DUE TO OUR GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY LOSSES YOU INCUR AS THE RESULT OF YOUR USE OF THE ALGORAND NETWORK OR ANY ELECTRONIC WALLET PROVIDER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY LOSSES, DAMAGES OR CLAIMS ARISING FROM: (A) USER ERROR, SUCH AS FORGOTTEN PASSWORDS OR INCORRECTLY CONSTRUED SMART CONTRACTS OR OTHER TRANSACTIONS; (B) SERVER FAILURE OR DATA LOSS; (C) CORRUPTED WALLET FILES; (D) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR ACTIVITIES BY THIRD PARTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE USE OF VIRUSES, PHISHING, BRUTE FORCING OR OTHER MEANS OF ATTACK AGAINST THE SITE, THE ALGORAND NETWORK, OR AN ELECTRONIC WALLET.

WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SITE AND THE SMART CONTRACTS TO YOU WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
11. ASSUMPTION OF RISK
You accept and acknowledge each of the following:
- The prices of blockchain assets are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of $EARNFT coins, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot guarantee that any purchasers of $EARNFT coins will not lose money.
- You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your EARNFT-related transactions. EARNFT Network is not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions.
- The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the EARNFT ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of $EARNFT coins.
- Upgrades to the EARNFT Network may have unintended, adverse effects on all EARNFT Network assets.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless, including our subsidiaries, affiliates, and all of our respective officers, agents, partners, and employees, from and against any loss, damage, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, made by third party due to or arising out of: (1) use of the Site, (2) breach of these Terms, (3) any breach of your representations and warranties set forth in these Terms, (4) your violation of the rights of a third party, including but not limited to intellectual property rights, or (5) any overt harmful act toward any other use of the Site and the Smart Contracts with whom you connected via the Site and the Smart Contracts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate, at your expense, with our defense of such claims. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding which is subject to this indemnification upon becoming aware of it.
13. USER DATA
We will maintain certain data that you transmit to the Site and the Smart Contracts for the purpose of managing the performance of the Site and the Smart Contracts, as well as data relating to your use of the Site and the Smart Contracts.

You agree that we shall have no liability to you for any loss or corruption of any such data, and you hereby waive any right of action against us arising from any such loss or corruption of such data.
These Terms and any policies or operating rules posted by us on the Site and the Smart Contracts, or in respect to the Site and the Smart Contracts constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms operate to the fullest extent permissible by law. We may assign any or all of our rights and obligations to others at any time. We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss, damage, delay, or failure to act caused by any cause beyond our reasonable control. If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is determined to be unlawful, void, and unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

You agree that these Terms will not be construed against us by virtue of having drafted them.
