TERMS OF USE

BLOCKLORDS is a distributed application that runs on the Ethereum and Matic networks. Using specially developed smart contracts to enable users to own, transfer, and trade unique digital heroes and items, which can then be visualized on a website that the user can interact with. The smart contracts and the site are collectively reffered to in these Terms as the “App”.

1. BLOCKLORDS HEROES
We have utilized smart contracts to develop our initial generation of BLOCKLORDS Heroes and items. These items were created in existing and previous versions of the App and have been acquired by players through gameplay drops, in-game events, or secondary market exchanges. The in-game world of BLOCKLORDS use a virtual currency (LORDS) that can be used to purchase items, heroes and resources within the game.

 

2. THE APP
A. To most easily use the App, you must first install the Google Chrome web browser. Once you have installed Chrome, you will need to install a browser extension called MetaMask. MetaMask is an electronic wallet, which allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using Ethereum cryptocurrency. You will not be able to engage in any transactions on the app other than through MetaMask (or other Ethereum-compatible browsers). The App will only recognize you as a user, and you will only be able to interact with the App, if your Ethereum electronic wallet is connected and unlocked through your Metamask account unless you have linked the account with your email address as well.

B. Transactions that take place on the App are managed and confirmed via the Ethereum blockchain and Matic Network. You understand that your public addresses will be made publicly visible whenver you engage in a transaction on the App.

C. We neither own nor control MetaMask, Google Chrome, the Ethereum Network, the Matic Network, 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 App. 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.

D. You must provide accurate and complete registration information when you create an account for the App. By creating an account, you agree to provide accurate, current and complete account information about yourself, and to maintain and promptly update as necessary your account information. You are responsible for the security of your account and your Metamask wallet (and other Ethereum wallet accounts). If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password or of your account with us, you agree to notify us immediately at [email protected]

 

3. FEES AND PAYMENTS
A. If you elect to purchase, trade or interact with assets on the App, or with or from other users via the App, any financial transaction that you engage in will be conducted through the Ethereum and Matic (if paying with cryptocurrency) or through XSolla (if paying with fiat currency). We will have no insight or control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any transactions. With that in mind, we will have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any transactions that you engage in via the App, or using the Smart Contracts, or any other transactions that you conduct via the Ethereum network or Metamaks.

B. Ethereum and Matic require the payment of a transaction fee (a”Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network. The Gas Fee funds the netowrk of computers that run the decentralized Ethereum network. This means that you will need to pay as Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the App.

C. As between us, you will be solely responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added and other taxes, duties, and assessments (except taxes on our net income) now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority (collectively, “Taxes”) associated with your use of the App (including, without limitation, any Taxes that may become payable as a result of your ownership, transfer, or acquisition of BLOCKLORDS assets).
