Terms & Conditions

Welcome to Qitty Qats. This is the Qitty Qats website (www.qittyqats.com). Except for any third party plug-ins or advertisements, this site and the various Qitty Qats product pages listed at (“Site”) are owned and operated by Qitty Qats, Inc (“Qitty Qats” or “we”). These Terms of Use (“Terms”) govern your use of the Site. You are not permitted to access and use the Site except as set forth in these Terms. By accessing and using the Site, and by purchasing or otherwise obtaining a unique, non-fungible token created by or on behalf of Qitty Qats (an “NFT”), either through an initial transfer from Qitty Qats or a subsequent transfer from the prior owner of the NFT, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not use the Site. Any new features or tools which are added to the current Site shall also be subject to these Terms. Changes to the Terms will be effective upon posting to the Site, and without notice to you, unless otherwise provided, so we encourage you to check the Terms from time to time. Your continued access and use of the Site or any NFT signifies your acceptance of the Terms as modified.

Qitty Qats may terminate your use of the Site and its contract with you if you do not comply with these Terms.

THESE TERMS CONTAIN A MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION AND WAIVER OF A RIGHT (IF ANY) TO A JURY TRIAL. ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND QITTY QATS MUST BE RESOLVED BY INDIVIDUAL BINDING ARBITRATION, AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED BELOW.

Online Site Terms

By agreeing to these Terms, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site. You may not use our products for any illegal or unauthorized purpose nor may you, in the use of the Site or services associated with the Site (“Services”), violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws). You must not transmit any worms or viruses or any code of a destructive nature. A breach or violation of any of the Terms will result in an immediate termination of your Services. Qitty Qats is a collection of works of authorship owned or controlled by Qitty Qats (“Digital Content”) that are associated with a NFT running on the Ethereum network (collectively, each NFT with the right to access the Digital Content associated with such NFT is a ”Digital Collectible”). This website is only an interface allowing participants to purchase Digital Collectibles. Purchasers of NFTs are entirely responsible for the safety and management of their own private Ethereum wallets and validating all transactions and contracts generated by this website before approval. Furthermore, as the Qitty Qats smart contract runs on the Ethereum network, there is no ability to undo, reverse, or restore any transactions. This website and its connected Services are provided “as is” and “as available” without warranty of any kind. By using this website you are accepting sole responsibility and risk for any and all transactions involving Qitty Qats Digital Collectibles and involving NFTs generally.

Ownership

i. You Own the NFT. Each Qat is an NFT on the Ethereum blockchain. When you purchase a NFT, you own the underlying Qat, including the copyright and intellectual property rights therein (but excluding any right, title or interest in the Marks, as defined below). To fully effect the foregoing, subject to Qitty Qats’ ownership of the Marks and retained rights set forth in subsection (ii) below, Qitty Qats hereby assigns all right, title and interest in and to the Digital Collectible, including Qitty Qats’ copyright and intellectual property rights in and to such Digital Collectible, to you, including the right to reproduce, adapt, modify, publicly display and perform, publish, and create derivative works of such Digital Collectible. Ownership of the NFT is mediated entirely by the Smart Contract and the Ethereum Network: at no point may we seize, freeze, or otherwise modify the ownership of any Digital Collectible
ii. Reserved Rights. Notwithstanding the grant of rights set forth above, Qitty Qats reserves to itself the right and license to modify, adapt, publicly display and perform, publish and creative derivative works of any Digital Collectible (i.e., any individual Qat or aggregation of Qats) for any purpose, including without limitation, to advertise or promote the fact that a Qat was issued as a Digital Collectible, or to create artwork, stories, graphic art, figurines, models or any other derivative work of a Digital Collectible (i.e., any Qat or aggregation of Qats). To fully effect the foregoing reservation of rights, and/or to the extent the foregoing reservation of rights is not effective under applicable law, you hereby grant to Qitty Qats a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, fully paid up, fully sub-licensable and transferable license to modify, adapt, publicly display and perform, publish and creative derivative works of any Digital Collectible for any purpose.
iii. Commercial Use. Notwithstanding the grant of ownership to you in your Digital Collectible as set forth herein, you will not use the Digital Collectible for your or any third party’s commercial benefit or personal gain (including, without limitation, crowd-funding or similar activities), or create, sell, or attempt to create or sell, fractionalized interests in the Digital Collectible. Qitty Qats may use or implement technical measures with respect to the security of the Digital Collectible and you will not take any action to interfere with, circumvent, disable or otherwise obstruct any such security-related features or other digital rights management functions, or reverse engineer or take any other action that may affect the technology associated therewith.

Use of NFTs

THE NFT IS A DIGITAL COLLECTIBLE INTENDED FOR CONSUMER ENJOYMENT, USE AND CONSUMPTION ONLY. IT IS NOT A “SECURITY,” AS DEFINED UNDER THE U.S. FEDERAL SECURITIES LAWS, OR UNDER THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY U.S. STATE. In addition, you acknowledge and agree that:
1. The prices of NFTs can be extremely volatile and subjective, and NFTs have no intrinsic value. To the extent there is a price or market for a blockchain asset such as an NFT, (a) the volatility in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of any digital assets you own, including NFTs, and (b) there is no guarantee that NFTs will have or retain any value. NFTs are not securities or financial instruments and are not offered for investment purposes;
2. The commercial or market value of NFTs may materially diminish in value as a result of a variety of things, including negative publicity associated with Qitty Qats. You accept and acknowledge that Qitty Qats is not responsible for the risks of engaging in any transactions relating to your NFTs with third parties (e.g., transferring your NFT from a third party on any so-called “secondary market”). You should not rely on these Terms or anything on the Site for legal advice regarding your NFT;
3. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the ecosystem and platforms for the sale and exchange of NFTs, and therefore the potential utility or value of your NFTs. You accept and acknowledge that Qitty Qats is not responsible for the risk of changes to the regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens and new regulations, unfavorable regulatory intervention in one or more jurisdictions or policies any of which may materially adversely affect the use and value of the NFTs;
4. Qitty Qats does not make any promises or guarantees related to MetaMask Wallet, OpenSea, Ethereum, Blockchain or any other third parties related to the sale or exchange of the NFTs and each of their applications and/or services, including, but not limited to, the continued availability of either and/or the protection and/or storage of any data you may provide to those parties.

Trademark

All names, terms, logos, slogans and other indicia identifying the Site or products (collectively, “Marks”) are owned by Qitty Qats, including the trademark and source identifier QITTY QATS. You will not attempt to trademark, copyright or otherwise acquire any additional intellectual property rights in or to the Site or any trademark, service mark or source-identifier associated with the Digital Collectible.

Sale of Your NFT on the Secondary Market

The limited license set forth in these Terms applies only to the extent you continue to own the NFT. You may sell, assign or otherwise transfer the NFT to a third party, provided that all of the following conditions are met:
1. such sale, assignment or other transfer is conducted through an online non-fungible token platform that cryptographically verifies that you are the actual owner of the NFT being transferred (“Platform”);
2. such sale, assignment or other transfer must comply with (i) such Platform’s applicable terms and (ii) any applicable laws, regulations, regulatory guidance, and rules; and
3. prior to such sale, assignment or other transfer, you must (i) provide written notice to the would-be transferee that such transferee’s use of (including any access to) the Digital Collectible will be conditional upon such transferee entering into the then-current version of these Terms, and (ii) ensure that such transferee is provided with an opportunity to review these Terms.
If at any time you sell, swap, donate, give away, transfer, or otherwise dispose of your NFT for any reason through any means, your rights under these Terms will immediately terminate (without the requirement of notice) with respect to the Digital Content associated with your NFT. Your rights under these Terms will also immediately terminate (without the requirement of notice) if you breach these Terms.
Without limiting the foregoing, if you offer or list any NFT for sale, or use any NFT to create or offer any asset, listing or collection, or take any other action in a manner that violates these Terms, any applicable terms of use governing marketplace, platforms, or distribution channels on which you purchased the NFT ("Platform Terms"), or any applicable laws, Qitty Qats or its designee(s) may take corrective actions, as it deems appropriate in its sole discretion, including but not limited to removing, deleting or disabling the NFT, corresponding Digital Content or Digital Collectible, listing, or collection, disabling access to or services relating to the NFT or any corresponding Digital Content or Digital Collectible, deleting your user account, destroying inappropriate metadata stored on Qitty Qats’ or its designees' servers, and/or permanently withholding any payments that would otherwise be made to you.
You acknowledge and agree that Qitty Qats or its designee(s) may receive a royalty from or in connection with your sale of, and any other future sale of, the NFT to compensate Qitty Qats or its designees for the initial development of the NFT and licensing and development of IP and the Digital Content. The royalty will be embedded in the NFT via a smart contract. You agree that such fee is initiated, transferred, and processed through the smart contract.

Occasionally there may be information on our site or in the Service that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, product shipping charges, transit times and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions, and to change or update information or cancel orders if any information in the Service or on any related website is inaccurate at any time without prior notice (including after you have submitted your order). We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify information in the Service or on any related website, including without limitation, pricing information, except as required by law.

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT (A) THE DIGITAL CONTENT ASSOCIATED WITH THE NFT YOU HAVE PURCHASED IS NOT NECESSARILY UNIQUE OR EXCLUSIVE, (B) THERE MAY BE IDENTICAL COPIES OF THE DIGITAL CONTENT ASSOCIATED WITH THE NFT THAT YOU HAVE PURCHASED, (C) NEITHER QITTY QATS NOR ITS LICENSORS MAKES ANY CLAIMS WITH RESPECT TO IDENTITY, LEGITIMACY, OR AUTHENTICITY OF THE DIGITAL CONTENT, DIGITAL COLLECTIBLE OR NFT THAT YOU HAVE PURCHASED, (D) YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR VERIFYING THE IDENTITY, LEGITIMACY, AND AUTHENTICITY OF ANY NFT YOU PURCHASE OR OF ANY LINKED OR ASSOCIATED DIGITAL CONTENT OR THE DIGITAL COLLECTIBLE, AND (E) IN NO EVENT WILL YOU HAVE RECOURSE AGAINST QITTY QATS OR ITS LICENSORS FOR ANY CLAIMS OR LOSSES WITH RESPECT TO ANY NFT YOU HAVE PURCHASED OR ANY DIGITAL CONTENT ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH NFT.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Qitty Qats will not be liable under any theory of law, for all or any damages, claims, causes of action, complaints, suits, obligations, losses, damages (such as, but not limited to, punitive damages, breach of contract damages, loss of profits, business interruption, loss of information or data, costs of replacement goods or attorneys’ fees, expenses or court costs), and/or all other legal responsibilities of any form whatsoever, whether known or unknown, whether fixed or contingent, under any theory of law or equity, arising out of or relating to your use or inability to use the Site, the NFTs, Digital Collectibles, or resulting from use of or reliance on the information present, even if Qitty Qats may have been advised of the possibility of such damages. If you are dissatisfied with the Site, the NFTs, you do not agree with any part of these Terms, or you have any other dispute or claim with or against Qitty Qats with respect to these Terms, the NFTs, the Digital Collectibles or the Site, then your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Site. IN NO EVENT WILL YOU HAVE RECOURSE AGAINST QITTY QATS FOR ANY CLAIMS OR LOSSES WITH RESPECT TO ANY NFT YOU HAVE PURCHASED. IN NO EVENT WILL QITTY QATS BE LIABLE FOR ANY (I) LOSS OF, OR INABILITY FOR YOU TO ACCESS THE NFT FOR ANY REASON, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, AS A RESULT OF ANY DOWNTIME, FAILURE, OBSOLESCENCE, REMOVAL, TERMINATION, FAILURE TO IMPLEMENT ANY TECHNICAL OR OTHER CONTINGENCIES, OR OTHER DISRUPTION RELATING TO THE STORAGE OF OR ACCESS TO ANY NFT OR (II) INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER NON-DIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. The exclusion of damages under this section is independent of your exclusive remedy and survives in the event such remedy fails of its essential purpose or is otherwise deemed unenforceable. These limitations and exclusions apply without regard to whether the damages arise from (i) breach of contract, (ii) breach of warranty, (iii) negligence, or (iv) any other cause of action. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction. In any event, Qitty Qats Inc’s aggregate liability shall not exceed USD $100. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.

Indemnification

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Qitty Qats subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of or related to your breach of these Terms or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.

Severability

In the event that any provision of these Terms is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms of Service, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.

Entire Agreement

The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this site or in respect to the Site or the NFTs constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and govern your use of the Site of the NFTs, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms). Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms shall not be construed against the drafting party.

Applicable Law; Disputes

These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy, constitute the entire agreement between you and Qitty Qats concerning your use of the Site and Digital Collectibles, superseding any prior agreements between you and Qitty Qats with respect to the Site and Digital Collectibles. These Terms and the relationship between you and Qitty Qats shall be subject to the internal laws of the State of California (including the California Arbitration Act) without giving effect to its principles on conflict of laws.

Mandatory Arbitration Provisions

ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR THE DIGITAL COLLECTIBLE, OR ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND QITTY QATS (AND, IF APPLICABLE, ITS LICENSORS), WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY, AND YOU AGREE THAT YOU AND QITTY QATS (AND, IF APPLICABLE, ITS LICENSORS) ARE EACH WAIVING ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY A JURY. SUCH DISPUTES INCLUDE, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO INTERPRETATION OR APPLICATION OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, INCLUDING THE ENFORCEABILITY, REVOCABILITY OR VALIDITY OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION OR ANY PORTION OF THE ARBITRATION PROVISION. ALL SUCH MATTERS SHALL BE DECIDED BY AN ARBITRATOR AND NOT BY A COURT OR JUDGE.

YOU AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THESE TERMS WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED AND YOU ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP THE ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

OPTION TO OPT OUT. YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THESE ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION PROVISIONS BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT OPT-OUT, THESE TERMS WILL APPLY RETROACTIVELY TO ALL CLAIMS YOU MAY POSSESS, WHETHER ASSERTED TO DATE OR NOT.

PROCEDURE TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO AGREE TO THIS ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER AGREEMENT, YOU MUST, WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS OF ACQUIRING OWNERSHIP OF THE APPLICABLE NFT, SEND AN E-MAIL TO SUPPORT@ECHOLABS.COM CONTAINING YOUR FULL NAME, ADDRESS, IDENTIFYING INFORMATION FOR THE APPLICABLE NFT, THE DATE ON WHICH YOU ACQUIRED SUCH NFT, AND THE WORDS “OPT OUT” IN THE BODY OR SUBJECT LINE OF THE EMAIL.

The arbitration will be administered by JAMS under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules, as amended by these Terms. The JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules are available online at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, at the Arbitrator’s sole discretion by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by JAMS or by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision will follow the terms set out in these Terms (including with respect to the class action waiver) and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of these Terms, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of an applicable governmental agency and, if and to the extent that the law allows, it can seek relief against us for you.
