PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF THE PLATFORM CAREFULLY, AS THEY CONTAIN AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AND OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES, AND OBLIGATIONS. THE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE REQUIRES (WITH LIMITED EXCEPTION) THAT YOU SUBMIT CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST US TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION, AND FURTHER (1) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AGAINST NFTb ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING, (2) YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO SEEK RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND (3) YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST US RESOLVED BY A JURY OR IN A COURT OF LAW.

We will also notify you, either through the Platform user interface, in an email notification, or through other reasonable means.

What is NFTb?
NFTb is a platform for artists (“Creators”) and collectors (“Collectors”) to sell, purchase, and bid (each a “Transaction”) on digital art represented on a non-fungible Binance Smart Chain (BSC) based tokens (“Digital Artwork”).
Smart-Contract Enabled. The Digital Artwork on NFTb is represented on smart contracts on the BSC blockchain that provides an immutable ledger of all transactions that occur on NFTb (“Smart Contracts”). This means that all Digital Artwork is outside of the control of anyone party, including NFTb (as well as its founders and personnel), and is subject to many risks and uncertainties. We (as well as its founders and personnel) neither own nor control your wallet, the BSC network, your browser, or any other third party site, product, or service that you might access, visit or use for the purpose of enabling you to use the various features of the Platform. We will not be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties, nor will we be liable for any damage that you may suffer as a result of your transactions or any other interaction with any such third parties. The User understands that your BSC public address will be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction on the Platform.
Noncustodial. While NFTb offers a marketplace for Digital Artwork, it does not buy, sell, or ever take custody or possession of any Digital Artwork. The Platform facilitates User collection of Digital Artwork, but neither NFTb nor the Platform is custodians of any Digital Artwork. The User understands and acknowledges that the Smart Contracts do not give NFTb custody, possession, or control of any Digital Artwork or cryptocurrency at any time for the purpose of facilitating transactions on the Platform. You affirm that you are aware and acknowledge that NFTb is a non-custodial service provider and has designed this Platform to be directly accessible by the Users without any involvement or actions taken by NFTb or any third party. As a marketplace, NFTb cannot make any representation or guarantee that Creators will achieve any particular outcome as the result of listing their Digital Artwork on NFTb.
How do I use NFTb?
Member Account, Password, and Security: You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, if any, and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify NFTb of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session when accessing NFTb. NFTb will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.
Connecting your Wallet: In order to participate as a Creator or Collector in the marketplace, you must connect to a browser extension called MetaMask. MetaMask is an electronic wallet that allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using the native Binance Smart Chain (BSC) cryptocurrency. All transactions on NFTb are in the native Binance Smart Chain cryptocurrency, BNB.
Modifications to the Platform: NFTb reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Platform (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that NFTb will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Platform.

How do I become a creator?
Artists need verification to become a Creator on NFTb.
NFTb maintains complete discretion in selecting the artists in its marketplace and makes no guarantees or promises that any artists will be approved as Creators even if NFTb solicited the request.
We are constantly reviewing artist profiles to ensure conformance with our art direction. NFTb reserves the right to revoke the “Creator Status” of any artist who does not meet our art direction for the marketplace and that of our community.
What are the intellectual property rights on the Platform?
The Creator owns all legal rights, titles, and interests in all intellectual property rights underlying the Digital Artwork minted by the Creator on the Platform, including but not limited to copyrights and trademarks. As the copyright owner, the Creator has the right to reproduce, prepare derivative Digital Artwork, distribute, and display or perform the Digital Artwork.
Creators hereby acknowledge, understands, and agrees that selling a Digital Artwork on NFTb constitutes an express representation, warranty, and covenant that the Creator has not, will not, and will not cause another to sell, tokenize, or create another cryptographic token representing a digital collectible for the same Digital Artwork, excepting, without limitation, the Creator’s ability to sell, tokenize, or create a cryptographic token or other digital asset representing a legal, economic, or other interest relating to any of the exclusive rights belonging to the Creator under copyright law.
The Creator hereby acknowledges, understands, and agrees that launching a Digital Artwork on NFTb constitutes an express and affirmative grant to NFTb, its affiliates and successors a non-exclusive, world-wide, assignable, sublicensable, perpetual, and royalty-free license to make copies of, display, perform, reproduce, and distribute the Digital Artwork on any media whether now known or later discovered for the broad purpose of operating, promoting, sharing, developing, marketing, and advertising the Platform, or any other purpose related to NFTb, including without limitation, the express right to: (i) display or perform the Digital Artwork on the Platform, a third party platform, social media posts, blogs, editorials, advertising, market reports, virtual galleries, museums, virtual environments, editorials, or to the public; (ii) create and distribute digital or physical derivative Digital Artwork based on the Digital Artwork; (iii) indexing the Digital Artwork in electronic databases, indexes, catalogues; and (iv) hosting, storing, distributing, and reproducing one or more copies of the Digital Artwork within a distributed file keeping system, node cluster, or other database (e.g., IPFS) or causing, directing, or soliciting others to do so.
Creators expressly represent and warrant that their Digital Artwork listed on NFTb contains only original content otherwise authorized for use by the Creator, and does not contain unlicensed or unauthorized copyrighted content, including any imagery, design, audio, video, human likeness, or other unoriginal content not created by the Creator, not authorized for use by the Creator, not in the public domain, or otherwise, without a valid claim of fair use, the Creator further represents and warrants that it has permission to incorporate the unoriginal content.
Collectors receive a cryptographic token representing the Creator’s Digital Artwork as a piece of property but do not own the creative work itself. Collectors may display and share the Digital Artwork, but Collectors do not have any legal ownership, right, or title to any copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights to the Digital Artwork, excepting the limited license to the Digital Artwork granted by these Terms. Upon collecting a Digital Artwork, Collectors receive a limited, worldwide, non-assignable, non-sublicensable, royalty-free license to display the Digital Artwork legally owned and properly obtained by the Collector.

Collectors have the right to sell, trade, transfer, or use their Digital Artwork, but Collectors may not make “commercial use” of the Digital Artwork.
The Collector agrees that it may not, nor permit any third party, to do or attempt to do any of the foregoing without the Creator’s express prior written consent in each case: (i) modify, distort, mutilate, or perform any other modification to the Work which would be prejudicial to the Creator’s honor or reputation; (ii) use the Digital Artwork to advertise, market, or sell any third party product or service; (iii) use the Digital Artwork in connection with images, videos, or other forms of media that depict hatred, intolerance, violence, cruelty, or anything else that could reasonably be found to constitute hate speech or otherwise infringe upon the rights of others; (iv) incorporate the Digital Artwork in movies, videos, video games, or any other forms of media for a commercial purpose, except to the limited extent that such use is expressly permitted by these Terms or solely for your Collector’s personal, non-commercial use; (v) sell, distribute for commercial gain, or otherwise commercialize merchandise that includes, contains, or consists of the Digital Artwork; (vi) attempt to trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire additional intellectual property rights in or to the Digital Artwork; (vii) attempt to mint, tokenize, or create an additional cryptographic token representing the same Digital Artwork, whether on or off of the NFTb Platform; (viii) falsify, misrepresent, or conceal the authorship of the Digital Artwork; or (ix) otherwise utilize the Digital Artwork for the Collector’s or any third party’s commercial benefit.
Collectors irrevocably release, acquit, and forever discharge NFTb and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, and successors of any liability for direct or indirect copyright or trademark infringement for NFTb use of a Digital Artwork in accordance with these Terms.

You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Platform, including your content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to the technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
Copyright Complaints: NFTb respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, you should notify NFTb of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below.
NFTb will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement. A notification of claimed copyright infringement should be emailed to NFTb’s Copyright Agent [email protected] (Subject line: “DMCA Takedown Request”).
To be effective, the notification must be in writing and contain the following information:
- an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
- a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
- a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Platform, with enough detail that we may find it on the Platform;
- your full name, scan of passport/ID for identification, address, telephone number, and email address;
- a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law;
- a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.
Counter-Notice: If you believe your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to upload and use the content in your User Content, you may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
- your physical or electronic signature;
- identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
- your full name, scan of passport/ID for identification, address, telephone number, and email address, statement that the User consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if the User’s address is outside of the United States, any jurisdiction in which the User may be properly served, and that the User will accept service of process from the person (or their agent) who filed the original DMCA notice.
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, NFTb will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
Repeat Infringer Policy: In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, NFTb has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at NFTb’s sole discretion, Users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. NFTb may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Platform and/or terminate the memberships of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
User Agrees to Cooperate with NFTb
Creators expressly agree to refund to the Collector and/or NFTb the entire portion of Fees received from the sale of a Digital Artwork that was subsequently removed from the Site pursuant to an effective DMCA request to which the Creator failed to timely submit an effective DMCA Counter-notification. NFTb not be held liable to any User for removing allegedly infringing works from the Platform or otherwise fulfilling its legal obligations under the DMCA.
Creators, Collectors, and all Users expressly agree to cooperate and timely respond to NFTb’s investigations, requests, and inquiries related to DMCA disputes or allegations of infringement. Users agree to initiate a “burn” transaction upon NFTb’s request for Digital Artwork that has been permanently removed from the NFTb marketplace pursuant to a valid DMCA Take-Down Notice, or that are otherwise alleged to be infringing.
What fees does NFTb charge?
Fees. The Fees for the sale of Digital Artwork on NFTb is as follows:
- Creators receive 90% of the total sale price of the Sale.
- NFTb collects 10% of the total sale price of the Sale.
- You agree and understand that all fees, commissions, and royalties are transferred, processed, or initiated directly through one or more of the smart contracts on the BSC blockchain network.
NFTb does not generally collect any fees, commissions, or royalties for transactions occurring outside of NFTb. Users irrevocably release, acquits, and forever discharges NFTb and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, and successors of any liability for royalties, fines, or fees not received from any off-market transaction.
All transactions on NFTb, including without limitation minting, tokenizing, bidding, listing, offering, purchasing, or confirming, are facilitated by smart contracts existing on the BSC network. The BSC network requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the BSC network, and thus every transaction occurring on NFTb. The value of the Gas Fee changes, often unpredictably, and is entirely outside of the control of NFTb. The User acknowledges that under no circumstances will a contract, agreement, offer, sale, bid, or other transaction on NFTb be invalidated, revocable, retractable, or otherwise unenforceable on the basis that the Gas Fee for the given transaction was unknown, too high, or otherwise unacceptable.
Taxes. Users are responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added and other taxes, duties, and assessments now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority, “associated with your use of NFTb (including, without limitation, any taxes that may become payable as the result of your ownership, transfer, purchase, sale, or creation of any artworks).
Beta Platforms. Certain features on NFTb may be offered while still in “beta” form (“Beta Platforms”). NFTb will utilize best efforts to identify the Beta Platforms by labeling on its Platform. By accepting these Terms or using the Beta Platforms, you understand and acknowledge that the Beta Platforms are being provided as a “Beta” version and made available on an “As Is” or “As Available” basis. The Beta Platforms may contain bugs, errors, and other problems. YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS AND ALL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR USE OF THE BETA PLATFORMS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY INTERNET ACCESS FEES, BACK-UP EXPENSES, COSTS INCURRED FOR THE USE OF YOUR DEVICE AND PERIPHERALS, AND ANY DAMAGE TO ANY EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, INFORMATION OR DATA. In addition, we are not obligated to provide any maintenance, technical, or other support for the Beta Platforms.
Other Legal Terms
Indemnity and Release: You agree to release, indemnify and hold NFTb and its affiliates and their officers, employees, directors, and agents (collectively, “Indemnitees”) harmless from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, rights, claims, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Platform, any User Content, your connection to the Platform, your violation of these Terms of Service or your violation of any rights of another. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will have no obligation to indemnify or hold harmless any Indemnitee from or against any liability, losses, damages, or expenses incurred as a result of any action or inaction of such Indemnitee. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.” If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine.
Disclaimer of Warranties: Platform transactions, including but not limited to primary sales, secondary market sales, listings, offers, bids, acceptances, and other operations utilize experimental smart contract and blockchain technology, including non-fungible tokens, cryptocurrencies, consensus algorithms, and decentralized or peer-to-peer networks and systems. Users acknowledge and agree that such technologies are experimental, speculative, and inherently risky and may be subject to bugs, malfunctions, timing errors, hacking and theft, or changes to the protocol rules of the BSC blockchain (i.e., “forks”), which can adversely affect the smart contracts and may expose you to a risk of a total loss, forfeiture of your digital currency or Digital Artwork, or lost opportunities to buy or sell Digital Artwork. YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE PLATFORM IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. NFTb EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
NFTb MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT (I) THE PLATFORM WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, (II) THE PLATFORM WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE, (III) THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE PLATFORM WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE, OR (IV) THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, PLATFORMS, INFORMATION, OR OTHER MATERIAL PURCHASED OR OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE PLATFORM WILL MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
Limitation of Liability: YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT NFTb WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS IN VALUE OF ANY DIGITAL ARTWORK, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, USE, DATA OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF NFTb HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, RESULTING FROM: (I) THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE PLATFORM; (II) THE COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS AND PLATFORMS RESULTING FROM ANY DIGITAL ARTWORK, GOODS, DATA, INFORMATION OR PLATFORMS PURCHASED OR OBTAINED OR MESSAGES RECEIVED OR TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH OR FROM THE PLATFORM; (III) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR DATA; (IV) STATEMENTS OR CONDUCT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE PLATFORM; OR (V) ANY OTHER MATTER RELATING TO THE PLATFORM. IN NO EVENT WILL NFTb’S TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, OR CAUSES OF ACTION EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID NFTb IN THE LAST SIX (6) MONTHS, OR, IF GREATER, ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100).
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OR EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU OR BE ENFORCEABLE WITH RESPECT TO YOU. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY PORTION OF THE PLATFORM OR WITH THESE TERMS OF PLATFORM, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USE OF THE PLATFORM.

IF ANY PORTION OF THESE SECTIONS IS HELD TO BE INVALID UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY, THE INVALIDITY OF SUCH PORTION SHALL NOT AFFECT THE VALIDITY OF THE REMAINING PORTIONS OF THE APPLICABLE SECTIONS.

General Legal Terms
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and NFTb and govern your use of the Platform, superseding any prior agreements between you and NFTb with respect to the Platform. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third-party services, third-party content, or third-party software. The failure of NFTb to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration: PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
- Agreement to Arbitrate This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in this Terms of Service as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and NFTb, whether arising out of or relating to this Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Platforms, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into this Terms of Service, you and NFTb are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
- Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND NFTb AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND NFTb AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.
- Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution
NFTb is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at [email protected]. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to NFTb should be sent to 542A River Valley Rd, Singapore 248373 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If NFTb and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or NFTb may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by NFTb or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or NFTb is entitled.
- Arbitration Procedures Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/ as may be updated from time to time. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms of Service as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under the Terms of Service and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless NFTb and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, NFTb agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
- Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of the relief sought is $75,000 or less, at your request, NFTb will pay all Arbitration Fees. If the value of relief sought is more than $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, NFTb will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, NFTb will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of the Terms of Service will continue to apply.
- Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement
Notwithstanding any provision in this Terms of Service to the contrary, NFTb agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Platforms, you may reject any such change by sending NFTb written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms of Service (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms of Service).
