DISCLAIMER: THE VALUE OF NFTS AND DIGITAL REWARDS ARE DERIVED FROM SUPPLY AND DEMAND IN THE GLOBAL MARKETPLACE, WHICH CAN RISE OR FALL INDEPENDENT OF ANY GOVERNMENT CURRENCY. HOLDING NFTS AND DIGITAL REWARDS CARRIES EXCHANGE RATE AND OTHER TYPES OF RISK. THE VALUE OF NFTS AND DIGITAL REWARDS MAY BE DERIVED FROM THE CONTINUED WILLINGNESS OF MARKET PARTICIPANTS TO EXCHANGE TRADITIONAL GOVERNMENT CURRENCY FOR DIGITAL REWARDS, WHICH MAY RESULT IN THE POTENTIAL FOR PERMANENT AND TOTAL LOSS OF VALUE OF A PARTICULAR DIGITAL REWARD SHOULD THE MARKET DISAPPEAR. THE VOLATILITY AND UNPREDICTABILITY OF THE PRICE AND VALUE OF NFTS AND DIGITAL REWARDS, RELATIVE TO GOVERNMENT CURRENCY, MAY RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT LOSS OVER A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. S DOES NOT AND CANNOT GUARANTEE OR WARRANT THE VALUE OF ANY NFT, DIGITAL REWARD OR BLOCKCHAIN, INCLUDING THE GREEN BLOCKCHAIN AND GREEN REWARD, AND EXPLICITLY WARNS THE USER THAT THAT THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT ANY NFT, DIGITAL REWARD, OR BLOCKCHAIN REWARD WILL INCREASE IN VALUE, AND THAT THEY MAY HOLD NO VALUE, DECREASE IN VALUE, OR ENTIRELY LOSE VALUE.
Terms found in this Agreement that relate to the SPF Services or SPF content, features, or functionality that are not available in your home jurisdiction are not applicable to you unless and until they become available to you. Certain SPF Services available to you in your home jurisdiction may not be available to you when traveling outside of your home jurisdiction.
USER AFFIRMS HE/SHE IS OVER THE AGE OF 18 OR THE LEGAL AGE OF MAJORITY WHERE THE USER RESIDES IF THAT JURISDICTION HAS AN OLDER AGE OF MAJORITY, AS THE GREEN APP AND SPF SERVICES ARE NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER AGE 18 OR THOSE THAT HAVE NOT REACHED THE AGE OF MAJORITY.
1. SET POWER FREE SERVICES.
SET POWER FREE (SPF) DAO LLC Services include the facilitation of a distributed application operable with a decentralized blockchain network, using smart contracts (each a “Smart Contract”) to enable Users to own, buy, sell, transfer, and share unique digital rewards that can be visualized on the SPF Site and/or through the Green App. To use the SPF Services, a User needs compatible hardware, software (latest version recommended and sometimes required) and Internet access (depending on the SPF Service). The SPF Services’ performance may be affected by these factors.
1.1 Green Node. “Green Node” is a computer software and/or hardware system connected to the Green Blockchain. The Green Node supports blockchain work by maintaining the cryptography and confirming transactions on the Green Blockchain. It is foreseeable that at the option of a User who owns a Green Node, the Green Node may be recommissioned by the User to support other blockchains or other technologies. As used herein, “Green Node” may represent either the node itself or a license the User obtains to run the node. The Green Nodes, when operating in conjunction with one another pursuant to the Green Blockchain protocol, form the “Green Node Network.”
1.2 Green Blockchain. The “Green Blockchain” allows each User to store digital rewards and other attributes on the Green Blockchain public ledger that allows for a decentralized, immutable record of ownership. The Green Blockchain is a decentralized, peer-to-peer network supported by the users of the Green Blockchain, which is not owned, controlled or operated by SPF. When the User purchases, earns or receives any digital reward through the Smart Contract process, the User owns completely and outright the digital reward.
1.3 GREEN Reward. Each User of any service on the Green Blockchain and associated Green Node may be able to earn the “GREEN Reward.” The GREEN Reward is a digital reward. GREEN Reward is not a security. GREEN Reward is not being offered for sale; rather, it is only distributed through a decentralized protocol to Users and Green Node owners in exchange for their GREEN-related activity. Like BTC (which is the digital reward generated from the Bitcoin Blockchain), GREEN Reward is created through a unique blockchain protocol. GREEN Reward’s value is not directly influenced by the efforts of any party other than holders of GREEN Rewards. Although Green Reward has the potential to effectively subsidize the cost of power, its utility may reside solely within the Green Blockchain and may or may not have value.
1.4 Green App
1.4.1 SPF will provide each User with a Green App, which enables the User to manage its digital assets, including GREEN Rewards. SPF will never take custody or control over any Platform Rewards stored in a User’s Green App. The Green App does not store, send or receive any NFT or digital reward, but such transactions occur directly on the Green Blockchain or other supported blockchains. Instead of the Green App, the User may use any compatible digital app or wallet provided by a third-party company that safely connects to the Green Blockchain. SPF is not responsible for any damage incurred through the use of such a compatible digital app or wallet provided by a third-party company. A User may be able to use the Green App or other compatible wallet to send and receive Platform Rewards with other users of the Green Blockchain. SPF does not offer any User the ability to exchange one form of currency for any other form of currency (fiat or digital). Green App is not a custodian, exchange, or money transmitter.
1.4.2 When a User creates a Green App, the Green Blockchain software generates a cryptographic private key and public key pair that the User must use to send and receive any digital reward supported on the Green Blockchain. The User is solely responsible for storing and keeping secret, and outside of SPF’s Services, a backup of the User’s Green App credentials, private key(s), passwords, and transaction information that the User maintains in the Green App or otherwise with the SPF Services. If the User does not backup the Green App, the User may not be able to access the Green App in the event that SPF discontinues some or all of the SPF Services. Any digital reward a User has stored within its Green App may become inaccessible if the User does not know or keep secret its Green App keys and passwords. SPF does not receive or store the User’s Green App passwords, PIN, keys, network addresses or transaction history. SPF cannot assist the User with Green App password or key retrieval. Any third party with knowledge of one or more of the User’s credentials (including, without limitation, a backup phrase, app identifier, password, or keys) can dispose of the digital reward in the User’s app.
1.4.3 In order for a transaction to be validated on the Green Blockchain, any transaction through the Green App must be confirmed and recorded in the distributed ledger associated with the Green Blockchain.
1.4.4 SPF has no control over Platform Rewards generated through the Green Blockchain and cannot ensure that any transaction details the User submits via the SPF Services and/or Green App will be confirmed or processed on the Green Blockchain. The User agrees and understands that the transaction details submitted by the User via the SPF Services and/or Green App may not be completed or may be delayed by the Green Blockchain or any supporting blockchain used to process the transaction. SPF does not guarantee that the Green App can transfer title or right in any NFT or digital reward, and SPF makes no warranties of title of any kind. Once transaction details have been submitted to the Green Blockchain, SPF cannot assist the User to cancel or otherwise modify such transaction or details.
1.4.5 In the event of a fork of the Green Blockchain or any other supported blockchain, SPF may not be able to support the User’s activity related to GREEN or any other supported NFT or reward. The User agrees and understands that in the event of a fork of the Green Blockchain, any transaction associated with the Green App or SPF Services may not be completed, may be partially completed, incorrectly completed, or substantially delayed. SPF is not responsible for any loss incurred by any User caused in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, by a fork of the Green Blockchain.
1.4.6 SPF does not currently charge a fee for downloading, accessing, or using the Green App. However, SPF reserves the right to do so in the future, and in such case any applicable fees will be displayed prior to the User incurring such fees. Notwithstanding, the Green Blockchain may have Blockchain Transaction Fees required to transact digital reward transactions through the Green Blockchain. SPF may attempt to calculate any Blockchain Transactions Fees for the User, though such calculation may be inaccurate. The User is solely responsible for paying any Blockchain Transaction Fees required on the Green Blockchain. SPF will neither advance nor fund any Blockchain Transaction Fee on any User’s behalf, nor be responsible for any excess or insufficient fee calculation.
1.4.7 The User shall be responsible for all activities that the User engages in through the Green App. The User accepts all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access to the Green App, to the maximum extent permitted by law. The User represents and warrants that the User is familiar with and accepts the risks associated with digital apps and private keys, including the risks described herein.
1.4.8 From time to time, there may be programs in place to allow User to receive a reward, in the form of GREEN Reward, NFT, or otherwise, based on actions taken by the User (“Additional Rewards”; GREEN Rewards and Additional Rewards are referred to herein as Platform Rewards). User understands that SPF makes no representations or warranties regarding the Additional Rewards. Notwithstanding or limiting the foregoing, SPF further makes no representations or warranties surrounding the operation of any SPF Services or that said SPF Services and/or Additional Rewards will be error-free or uninterrupted. User accepts the sole responsibility for taking any and all actions to obtain any Additional Rewards and holds SPF harmless for any opportunity cost or losses that occur as a result of the non-receipt of anticipated Additional Rewards, monetary or otherwise.
2. PAYMENT TERMS.
2.1 Annual License and Monthly Service Fees.
The User shall pay a one-time Green Node license fee and may be charged monthly service fee(s) for SPF Services. SPF may, at its discretion, designate or license any of its affiliates or any third party to sell software or hardware necessary to support any Green Node. SPF shall have no liability, and makes no representations or warranties, with regard to any such transaction between the User and any SPF affiliate or third party.
2.2 Software License.
The User may be required to enter into a software license agreement with SPF or any third party for the use of any required software for each Green Node. The User shall pay all associated software license fees.
2.3 Equipment Purchase.
The User may enter into an equipment purchase agreement with a third party as it relates to the purchase of any hardware for a Green Node. The User is not required to purchase such hardware but may use any equipment (e.g., computer, GPU, cell phone, or other technology) that can provide the necessary computing hash rate and appropriately and safely access and connect to the Green Blockchain.
2.4 Maintenance and Hosting Fees.
SPF does not maintain or host any Green Node but may refer the User to one or more third-party hosting companies that may or may not be affiliated with SPF. If the User elects to enter into such a hosting agreement with a third party, the User may be required to pay certain data center operations, maintenance and power fees (“Maintenance Fees”). These Maintenance Fees may be deducted from the User’s Platform Rewards or GREEN Reward with the consent of SPF, at SPF’s discretion.
2.5 Blockchain Transaction Fees.
The delivery and receipt of any of the User’s Platform Rewards through the Green App may be subject to network or transaction fees charged by the blockchain associated with the User-selected algorithm (“Blockchain Transaction Fees”), which are non-refundable. Blockchain Transaction Fees are paid to emit, record, verify, and process a transaction on the Green Blockchain. Any withdrawal or transfer of the User’s Platform Rewards may be subject to Blockchain Transaction Fees.
2.6 Other Third-Party Fees.
Certain digital apps, app addresses, tools, and third-party software and devices (“Third-Party Fees”) used by the User may also charge the User a fee, including a per transaction or transfer fee, which are non-refundable. The User is responsible for satisfying any such fees. The User should note that any such fees may significantly reduce the User’s Platform Rewards and therefore the User is responsible for managing the selection, use, rate and frequency of their receipt of Platform Rewards to any such Third-Party Fees.
The User is responsible for any taxes related to the use of the Green App and/or SPF Services, and the User will pay for SPF Services without any reduction for taxes. If the User is required by law to withhold any taxes from its payments to SPF, the User must provide SPF with an official tax receipt or other qualified documentation to support such withholding, including value added tax (“VAT”), if applicable. The User will be liable to pay (or reimburse SPF) for any taxes, interest, penalties, or fines which may arise from any mis-declaration made by the User. The User shall pay SPF for all taxes and governmental fees SPF is required to collect or pay upon sale or delivery of SPF Services.
2.8 Disclaimer of Potential Losses and Taxes
POTENTIAL USERS OF NFTS, DIGITAL ASSETS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BITCOIN, ARE FOREWARNED OF POSSIBLE FINANCIAL LOSS AT THE TIME SUCH REWARDS ARE EXCHANGED FOR FIAT CURRENCY DUE TO AN UNFAVORABLE EXCHANGE RATE. MOREOVER, A FAVORABLE EXCHANGE RATE AT THE TIME OF EXCHANGE MAY RESULT IN A TAX LIABILITY. USERS SHOULD CONSULT A TAX ADVISOR REGARDING ANY TAX CONSEQUENCES ASSOCIATED WITH THE PURCHASE, SALE, TRADE, OR OTHER USE OF DIGITAL ASSETS. USER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PAYMENT OF ANY APPLICABLE TAXES ASSOCIATED WITH THE PURCHASE, SALE, TRADE, OR OTHER USE OF NFTS, OR DIGITAL ASSETS.
3. USER OBLIGATIONS
3.1 Software and Equipment Allocation.
The User is responsible for the allocation of the User’s software, equipment, and any and all selected optimization strategies and decisions related thereto. The User acknowledges that SPF is not responsible for the selection or timing of blockchain protocols, nor is SPF responsible for the protocols selected for use in connection with SPF Services. The User is solely responsible for these decisions. The User acknowledges that node transactions on any blockchain may vary and will not be uniform across each Green Node. The User acknowledges that the difficulty of mining may vary and will likely increase over time.
3.2 Log-in Credentials.
The User represents and warrants that the User is responsible for the preservation of confidentiality of the User’s login credentials on the Green App and any other login for the SPF Services. Login credentials generated for the User by SPF are for the User’s internal use only and the User is strictly prohibited from selling, transferring, or sub-licensing them to any other entity or person.
3.3 Blockchain Network Risk.
The User represents and warrants that the User knowingly accepts the risks associated with blockchain protocol and network use, including instability, congestion, high transaction costs, network latency, information security, regulatory risk, and technological and operational error. The User understands these risks may result in delay or failure to process transactions, failure to generate hash rate, and potentially high Blockchain Transaction Fees or Third-Party Fees. The User represents and agrees that SPF is not responsible for any diminished SPF Services, related features, or capabilities resulting from risks associated with blockchain protocol and network use. In the event of a material increase or decrease to Blockchain Transaction Fees, Third-Party Fees, or operational degradation, congestion, failure or other disruption of the blockchain network used by the User, SPF may, at its sole discretion and upon notice to the User, make any adjustments to the SPF Services.
3.4 Blockchain Modification Risk.
The User represents and warrants that the User is familiar with and accepts the risks associated with blockchain development and modification. The User understands that Blockchain technologies are still under development and may undergo significant changes over time, and that Blockchain contributors may make changes to features and specifications of the algorithm selected by the User and may fork the Green Blockchain protocol. Such changes may include or result in the elimination or support for specific algorithms and applications.
3.5 Proof-Of-Work Replacement Risk
In addition to blockchain modification risk, blockchain contributors may also modify the cryptographic verification process such that the blockchains can no longer be verified through Proof-of-Work and instead adopt Proof-of-Stake or other methodologies. The User accepts and acknowledges such risk and shall allocate the User’s hash rate to other available blockchains and mining processes that use Proof-of-Work methodologies. The User further acknowledges that certain blockchain algorithms have no alternative blockchain applications that support Proof-of-Work mining and any such SPF transition from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake may result in no applicable use of the User’s hash rate.
3.6 Trade Compliance.
User shall comply with all applicable import, re-import, sanctions, anti-boycott, export, and re-export control laws and regulations, including all such laws and regulations that apply to European Union and U.S. companies, such as the Export Administration Regulations, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, and economic sanctions programs implemented by the Office of Foreign Assets Control and the European Union’s Common Foreign and Security Policy (collectively, “Trade Sanctions Laws”). The User represents and warrants that the User and the User’s financial institutions, or any party that owns or controls the User or the User’s financial institutions, are not subject to sanctions or otherwise designated on any list of prohibited or restricted parties, including but not limited to the lists maintained by the United Nations Security Council, the U.S. Government (e.g., the Specially Designated Nationals List and Foreign as Evaders List of the U.S. Department of Treasury, and the Entity List of the U.S. Department of Commerce), the European Union or its Member States, or other applicable government authority. Further, User represents and warrants that it is currently in compliance with and shall at all times during the term of this agreement remain in compliance with the regulations of the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), including those named on FFAC’s Specially Designated and Blocked Persons List, and any statute, executive order (including the September 24, 2001, Executive Order Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Persons who Commit, Threaten to Commit or Support Terrorism), or other governmental action relating thereto. Specifically, User shall not engage in business, sell to, or form a business relationship on behalf of others or for itself with any individual or country in contravention or violation of the aforementioned rules, laws, and regulations. The User warrants that the User is not named on any OFAC Blocked Persons List or resides in any country or territory sanctioned by OFAC. The User shall indemnify and hold harmless SPF against and from any claim, loss, damage, or expense (including attorneys’ fees and costs for the underlying investigation) arising from any breach or misrepresentation of this section.
User acknowledges that the User’s activities under this agreement may be subject to United States and other anti-bribery and corruption legislation around the world (including without limitations, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act). User warrants that it has not and undertakes and agrees that it shall not, in connection with SPF Services, make or promise to make any payment or transfer of anything of value, directly, or indirectly, to:
i. any governmental official or employee (including employees of government-owned or state-controlled corporations and employees of public international organizations).
ii. any political party, official, or candidate for public office.
iii. any intermediary for payment to any of the foregoing; or
iv. to any other person or entity if such payment or transfer would violate the laws of the country in which it is made or the laws of the United States of America
v. User acknowledges and agrees that no payments or transfers of value shall be made that have the purpose or effect of public or commercial bribery, acceptance of or acquiescence in extortion, kickbacks or other unlawful or improper means of obtaining business or any improper advantage. The User shall indemnify and hold harmless SPF against and from any claim, loss, damage, or expense (including attorneys’ fees and costs for the underlying investigation) arising from any breach or misrepresentation of this section.
3.8 Ownership Restrictions.
User acknowledges and agrees that SPF, any developer, or third-party contract provider (or, as applicable, any licensor) affiliated with SPF and/or providing services relating to the SPF Services own all legal right, title and interest in and to all elements of their respective intellectual property rights therein. The visual interfaces, graphics (including, without limitation, all art and drawings associated with the), design, systems, methods, information, computer code, software, services, “look and feel”, organization, compilation of the content, code, data, and all other elements of any content provided on the Site, Green App, or Green Blockchain are protected by copyright, trade dress, patent, and trademark laws, international conventions, and other relevant intellectual property and proprietary rights and applicable laws. All such intellectual property is the property of its owners or licensors, and all trademarks, service marks, and trade names are proprietary to its owner or licensors. Except as expressly set forth herein, the use of the SPF Services and Green App does not grant User any ownership of or any other rights with respect to any content, code, data, or other materials that you may access on or through the Green App. Please contact us if you are aware of a User committing copyright infringement at firstname.lastname@example.org
USER AFFIRMS HE/SHE IS OVER THE AGE OF 18 OR THE LEGAL AGE OF MAJORITY WHERE THE USER RESIDES IF THAT JURISDICTION HAS AN OLDER AGE OF MAJORITY, AS THE GREEN APP AND SPF SERVICES ARE NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER AGE 18 OR THOSE THAT HAVE NOT REACHED THE AGE OF MAJORITY.
3.10 Responsibility for Conduct.
User takes responsibility for all activities that occur under the User’s Green App and for the User’s use of the SPF Services. The User accepts all risk associated with any authorized or unauthorized access to its Green App, to the maximum extent permitted by law. User represents and warrants that the User is familiar with and accepts the risks associated with digital Apps and private keys, including but not limited to the risks described herein. User is solely responsible for the User’s own conduct while accessing or using the SPF Services or Green App, and for any consequences caused by or arising from such access or use. User agrees to use the SPF Services, Green App, and Green Blockchain for purposes that are legal, proper and in accordance with these Terms and any applicable laws or regulations. By way of example, and not as a limitation, User may not, and may not allow any third party to: (i) send, upload, distribute or disseminate any unlawful, defamatory, harassing, abusive, fraudulent, obscene, or otherwise objectionable content; (ii) distribute viruses, worms, defects, Trojan horses, corrupted files, hoaxes, or any other items of a destructive or deceptive nature; (iii) impersonate another person (via the use of an email address or otherwise); (iv) upload, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the SPF Services any content that infringes the intellectual proprietary rights of any party; (v) use the SPF Services to violate the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others; (vi) engage in, promote, or encourage illegal activity (including, without limitation, money laundering); (vii) interfere with other users’ enjoyment of the Green App or Green Blockchain; (viii) exploit the SPF Services for any unauthorized commercial purpose; (ix) modify, adapt, translate, or reverse engineer any portion of the SPF Services; (x) remove any copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notices contained in or on the Green App or Green Blockchain or any part of it; (xi) reformat or frame any portion of the Green App; (xii) display any content on the Green App or Green Blockchain that contains any hate-related or violent content or contains any other material, products or services that violate or encourage conduct that would violate any criminal laws, any other applicable laws, or any third party rights; (xiii) use any robot, spider, site search/retrieval application, or other device to retrieve or index any portion of the Green App or the content posted on the Green App, or to collect information about its users for any unauthorized purpose; or (xiv) create user accounts by automated means or under false or fraudulent pretenses. The User shall indemnify and hold harmless SPF against and from any claim, loss, damage, or expense (including attorneys’ fees and costs for the underlying investigation) arising from any breach or misrepresentation of this section. User is solely responsible for all financial charges and legal liability that he or she may incur.
3.11 Representations Made By User.
User acknowledges and agrees that the SPF Services, including but not limited to the Green Node, ARE NOT being sold as an investment by or of SPF. THE USER UNDERSTANDS THAT ANY REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY THE USER AT ANY TIME THAT ANY OF THE SPF SERVICES ARE AN INVESTMENT IN GREEN (OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IN GENERAL) TO OTHERS IN AN ATTEMPT TO MARKET SPF SERVICES IN COORDINATION WITH SUPPLYING USER’S REFERRAL LINK IS A BREACH OF THE TERMS & CONDITIONS. A determination of same will be made at the sole discretion of SPF.
3.12 GREEN NODE REPRESENTATIONS
SPF and the User recognize that the SOLE AND ONLY purpose of the Green Node is to support the Green Node Platform. Nothing contained in these Terms and Conditions, any exhibit to these Terms and Conditions, or any representation made outside of these Terms and Conditions, conveys on the User any ownership interests in SPF or its subsidiaries, or interests otherwise in SPF (including, but not limited to voting rights), nor any expectation of profits from the efforts of SPF or its principals or subsidiaries. The User understands that while it may from time to time receive rewards in line with the distribution schedule of the Green Node Platform (“Distribution Rewards”) (subject to change), said reward is solely earned because of and as a direct result of work accomplished and performed by the User (e.g. work done by the Green Node). The User recognizes that should the User never actually run the Green Node, it will receive no rewards. SPF has no control of the method in which rewards are distributed to the Green Node. It is anticipated that the Green Node will be able to be sold or transferred in the future as NFTs, however, SPF cannot and does not warrant or represent that the resale value of the Nodes will be higher than the purchase price should this event occur, nor that it will be legally possible to do so. Further, SPF cannot and does not warrant or represent that there will ever be a resale value or capability of the Green Node.
SPF may suspend or terminate the User’s right to access or use SPF Services immediately and without notice if: (i) SPF determines the User’s use of the SPF Services poses a security risk to SPF or any third party, could adversely impact SPF, SPF Services, the Green App, Green Blockchain or any other SPF users, or could subject SPF, its affiliates, or any third party to liability; (ii) SPF determines at any time that the User may have engaged in fraudulent activity at any point in relation to its use of the SPF Services; (iii) the User is in breach of these Terms & Conditions; (iv) the User initiated a chargeback or dispute with respect to any payment or purchase of the SPF Services; or (v) the User has ceased to operate in the ordinary course, made an assignment for the benefit of creditors or similar disposition assets, or become the subject of any bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation, dissolution, or similar proceeding.
4.2 Effect of Suspension.
If SPF suspends the User’s right to access or use any portion or all of the SPF Services, the User shall remain responsible for all fees and charges the User incurs during the period of suspension, including any Maintenance Fees and Blockchain Transaction Fees; and the User may be in violation of the User’s hosting agreement or the blockchain protocols, which may prevent or limit the User’s entitlement or access to any results or rewards that may have occurred during the User’s suspension of the SPF Services. User agrees to pay any fee charged by SPF to reconnect the SPF Services.
4.3 Effect of Termination.
If SPF terminates the User’s right to access or use any portion of the SPF Services, then all of the User’s rights under these Terms & Conditions immediately terminate and the User shall remain responsible for all fees owed to SPF incurred through the termination date.
5. DECENTRALIZED GOVERNANCE
5.1 Decentralized Advisory Board. The Green Blockchain may have a decentralized advisory board.
5.2 Consensus Nodes. The Green Blockchain has consensus nodes, which are the Green Nodes that approve and validate transactions and contribute to the security and stability of the network. Any User that owns a Green Node involved in the consensus protocol may be rewarded from the Green Blockchain and be able to charge Blockchain Transaction Fees.
5.3 Community and Decentralized Innovation. The Green Blockchain invites any person or entity throughout the world to contribute to the Green Blockchain, including coders, application developers, marketers, advertisers, and service and maintenance providers. Accepted amendments, updates, and innovation from individuals or groups of the Green Blockchain community may be rewarded from the Green Blockchain rewards.
7. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
Each User represents and warrants that: (i) it has full power and authority to enter into these Terms & Conditions; and (ii) it will comply with all laws and regulations applicable to its provision or use of SPF Services.
8. DISCLOSURES & RISKS
SPF notifies each User of certain disclosures and risks associated with blockchain, NFT, and digital rewards and their associated technology and protocols. SPF Services are not an investment product, and no action, notice, communication by any means, or omission by SPF shall be understood or interpreted as such. SPF has no influence whatsoever on the Green Blockchain, the transactions and consensus protocols, or the NFTs or digital rewards, including the GREEN Reward. Ownership of a Green App or Green Node or the use of SPF Services does not represent or constitute any ownership right or stake, share or security, debt or equivalent right, or any right to receive any future revenue or form of participation in or relating to any blockchain or digital reward, including the Green Blockchain or GREEN Reward.
8.2 Digital Rewards.
Platform Rewards are not considered legal tender, are not issued or backed by any government, and have fewer regulatory protections than traditional currency. Moreover, Platform Rewards are not insured against theft or loss by any insurance corporation or any investor protection, including the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Securities Investor Protection Corporation.
8.3 Market Risk.
The value of NFTs and Platform Rewards are derived from supply and demand in the global marketplace, which can rise or fall independent of any government(fiat) currency, in addition to potential utility on blockchain platforms. Holding NFTs and digital rewards carries exchange rate and other types of risk. The value of NFTs and digital rewards may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange traditional government currency for digital rewards, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular digital reward should the market disappear. The volatility and unpredictability of the price and value of NFTs and digital rewards, relative to government currency, may result in significant loss over a short period of time. SPF cannot guarantee or warrant the value of any NFT, digital reward or blockchain, including the Green Blockchain and GREEN Reward, and explicitly warns the User that that there is no reason to believe that any NFT, digital reward, or blockchain reward will increase in value, and that they may hold no value, decrease in value, or entirely lose value.
8.4 Regulatory Risk.
Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of virtual NFTs, digital rewards, and blockchain rewards. The regulatory status of digital assets and blockchain technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions, including but not limited to the United States, United Kingdom, and European Union. It is difficult to predict how or whether governmental authorities will regulate such technologies. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether any governmental authority may make changes to existing laws, regulations and/or rules that will affect digital assets, blockchain technology and its applications. Such changes could negatively impact the SPF Services in various ways, including, for example, through a determination that any of the above are regulated financial instruments that require registration. SPF may cease any distribution of any of the above, the development of the SPF platform, or any operations in a jurisdiction in the event that governmental action makes it unlawful or commercially undesirable to continue to do so. The industry in which SPF operates is new, and may be subject to heightened oversight and scrutiny, including investigations or enforcement actions. There can be no assurance that governmental, quasi-governmental, regulatory, or other similar types of authorities (including banking authorities) will not examine the operations of SPF and/or pursue enforcement actions against SPF. Such governmental activities may or may not be specifically targeted at SPF. Such examinations and/or actions may subject SPF to judgments, settlements, fines, or penalties, or cause SPF to restructure its operations and activities or to cease offering certain products or services, all of which could harm SPF’s reputation or lead to higher operational costs, which may in turn have a material adverse effect on the SPF Services.
8.5 Technology Risk.
Virtual NFT and digital reward transactions may be irreversible. Losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. Some virtual transactions are deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which may not necessarily be the date or time the user initiated the transaction. The nature of such virtual transactions may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber-attacks.
8.6 Changes to Green Node Network.
SPF and User recognize that from time-to-time amendments will be made to the Green Node Network. SPF and User both specifically agree that SPF will, from time to time, present the Green Node Network with proposed amendments (the “Proposed Amendments”) that the Node Network will then vote on whether to implement the Proposed Amendments (the “Governance Vote”). The User understands that the Proposed Amendments will be made at the discretion of SPF, and SPF owes the User no duty or obligation to make Proposed Amendments in the User’s best interests. The User specifically understands that there may come a time when a Proposed Amendment is not in the User’s best interests, financial or otherwise (including, but not limited to a change in the distribution calculation), and in such situations the User has no legal recourse against SPF should any Proposed Amendment be approved and implemented through the Governance Vote. The User’s only recourse is to vote against said Proposed Amendment. SPF and the User both agree that one such Proposed Amendment may be to change the specifications, including, but not limited to the internet connection, Random Access Memory, Central Processing Unit requirements, extra space, and any other requirements needed to run the Nodes (the “Specifications”). SPF and User further agree that while the Specifications may be minimal on the effective date of this Agreement, this is subject to change through the Proposed Amendment and the Governance Vote. Rewards earned (financial or otherwise) for running a Green Node are subject to change.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR IN THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SPF, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS SUPPLIERS DO NOT MAKE ANY OTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. SPF, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS SUPPLIERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE DELETION, FAILURE TO STORE, OR ANY LOSS OF ANY USER DATA, INCLUDING BLOCKCHAIN DATA, NFT AND DIGITAL REWARDS DERIVED, MAINTAINED, OR TRANSMITTED THROUGH USE OF SPF SERVICES. THE USER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR SECURING ITS CUSTOMER DATA AND DIGITAL REWARDS. NEITHER SPF, ITS AFFILIATES, NOR ITS SUPPLIERS, WARRANTS THAT THE OPERATION OF SPF SERVICES, GREEN BLOCKCHAIN, OR ANY OTHER SUPPORTED BLOCKCHAIN WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED. SPF, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS SUPPLIERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES OR OPPORTUNITY COSTS RESULTING FROM BLOCKCHAIN NETWORK AND PROTOCOL OR THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE ISSUES, WHICH MAY IN TURN RESULT IN THE INABILITY TO PROCESS TRANSACTIONS ON ANY BLOCKCHAIN AT ALL OR WITHOUT INCURRING SUBSTANTIAL FEES.
