Terms of Service
website (the “Site”) and the application currently known as IRONSKY NFT GAME PLAY TO EARN app, as amended from time to time (the “App”), as well as any other media form, media channel, mobile website or mobile application related, linked, or otherwise connected thereto.
IRONSKY’s Site and App are interfaces currently running on the Cardano blockchain network. IRONSKY’s Site and App may be deployed on other blockchain networks, as determined by us in our sole discretion from time to time (the “Blockchain”). The Blockchain is using an underlying technology of specially-developed smart contracts (each, a “Smart Contract”) to enable users to own, transfer, battle, and breed genetically unique digital creatures, which are digital assets in the form of non-fungible tokens or fungible tokens (“Digital Assets”). These Digital Assets can then be visualized on the Site where the user can interact with and operate Digital Asset transactions. Users will automatically interact with the Blockchain and the Smart Contract by using certain services available on the Site.
You acknowledge that the Blockchain and the Smart Contracts aim to become a fully decentralized autonomous system where we will not have control over the Blockchain, the Smart Contracts, and any software through which the Blockchain is formed. In no event shall IRONSKY be responsible for, or held liable, in connection with the Blockchain, the Smart Contracts, or any software on which the Blockchain relies, their operation, functioning, implementation, or use, and you hereby assume and accept any and all related risks, including the risk of possible losses and damages of your Digital Assets that may be incurred in connection with the use thereof. Using the Site or the App, users can view and use their Digital Assets and Smart Contracts to acquire, trade, battle, and breed creatures with other App users, which will be recorded on the Blockchain.
The access and use of the Site, the App, and the Smart Contracts are not intended for any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such access or use would be contrary to law or regulation, or which would subject us to any registration requirement within the government or regulatory authority of this jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, any persons who access or attempt to access the Site and/or the App while breaking laws applicable to them are doing it on their own initiative and will have to deal with the consequences when applicable.
If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site, the App, and the Smart Contracts (or any portion thereof). We reserve the right to choose markets and jurisdictions to conduct business and may restrict or refuse the access of Websites and our Services in other countries or regions at our sole discretion.
The Site is intended for users who are at least 18 years old or are of legal age to form a binding contract under applicable laws. If you are a user under the age of 18 years, you are not permitted to use or access the Site, the App, and the Smart Contracts.

5. FEE, PAYMENT AND TAXES
Any purchases of IRONSKY’s Digital Assets or acquisition of IRONSKY’s Digital Assets by breeding from the site or marketplace will be done through smart contracts on a blockchain using a wallet like Nami, Yoroi .. or other similarly supported wallets. Any financial transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through the Blockchain via a wallet such as Nami, Yoroi .. or other supported wallets. We will have no insight into 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 Site and/or the App or using the Smart Contracts, or any other transactions that you conduct via the Blockchain.
The Blockchain requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the Blockchain. The Gas Fee funds the network of computers that run the Blockchain. This means that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for certain transactions that occur via the Site and/or the App.
In addition to the Gas Fee, each time you utilize the Blockchain or the Smart Contract to conduct a transaction with another user via the Site or the App, you authorize us to collect a commission of a small rate in (%) of the total value of that transaction (each, a “Commission”). You acknowledge and agree that the Commission will be transferred directly to us through the Blockchain as a part of the transaction.
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 the result of your ownership, transfer, or breeding of any of your IRONSKY’s Digital Assets). Except for income taxes levied on IRONSKY, you: (i) will pay or reimburse us for all national, federal, state, local, or other taxes and assessments of any jurisdiction, including value-added taxes and taxes as required by international tax treaties, customs or other import or export taxes, and amounts levied in lieu thereof based on charges set, services performed or payments made hereunder, as are now or hereafter may be imposed under the authority of any national, state, local or any other taxing jurisdiction; and (ii) shall not be entitled to deduct the amount of any such taxes, duties or assessments from payments made to us pursuant to these Terms.
You acknowledge and agree that any questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, feedback, or other information regarding the Site, the App and the Smart Contracts (“Submissions”) provided by you to us are non-confidential and should become our sole property. We should own exclusive rights, including all intellectual property rights, and should be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of these Submissions for any lawful purpose, commercial, or otherwise, without acknowledgment or compensation for you. You hereby waive any moral rights to any such Submissions, and you hereby warrant that any such Submissions are original with you or that you have the right to submit such Submissions.

Such Third-Party Websites and Third-Party Content are not investigated, monitored, or checked for accuracy, appropriateness, or completeness by us, and we are not responsible for any Third-Party Websites accessed through the Site and/or the App, or any Third-Party Content posted on, available through, or installed from the Site and/or the App, including the content, accuracy, offensiveness, opinions, reliability, privacy practices, or other policies of or contained in the Third-Party Websites or the Third-Party Content.

9. GOVERNING LAW
10. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
10.1 Informal negotiations
10.2 Binding Arbitration:
If a Party cannot resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Disputes (except those expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the arbitration rules and regimes of the British Virgin Islands.
If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in the British Virgin Islands, and the Parties hereby consent to and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non-conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts.
In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site, the App and the Smart Contracts be commenced more than one (1) year after the cause of the action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed or jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
10.3 Exceptions to the Informal Negotiations and Arbitration
The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provision concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Dispute seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, and of the intellectual property rights of a Party, (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and © any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal and unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable, and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed or jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT WE, OUR SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SHAREHOLDERS, MEMBERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, ATTORNEYS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, SUPPLIERS, CONTRACTORS, AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, TANGIBLE, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OR LOSSES WHICH YOU MAY INCUR, HOWSOEVER CAUSED AND UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOSS OF PROFITS (WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY), LOSS OF GOODWILL OR BUSINESS REPUTATION, LOSS OF DATA, COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, OR ANY OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSS, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT OUR TOTAL, AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF (OR YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE) ANY PORTION OF THE SITE, THE APP AND THE SMART CONTRACTS, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, IS LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF (A) THE AMOUNTS YOU ACTUALLY PAID US UNDER THESE TERMS IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE DATE THE CLAIM AROSE, OR (B) ONE HUNDRED (100) US DOLLAR.
YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE HAVE MADE THE SITE, THE APP AND THE SMART CONTRACTS AVAILABLE TO YOU AND ENTERED INTO THESE TERMS IN RELIANCE UPON THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN, WHICH REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN US. WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SITE, THE APP AND THE SMART CONTRACTS TO YOU WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, AND SOME JURISDICTIONS ALSO LIMIT DISCLAIMERS OR LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY FROM CONSUMER PRODUCTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS.
13. ASSUMPTION OF RISK
You accept and acknowledge each of the following:
A. The prices of blockchain assets are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your IRONSKY’s Digital Assets, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot guarantee that any purchasers of IRONSKY’s Digital Assets will not lose money.
B. You are solely responsible for determining what taxes apply to transactions related to your IRONSKY’s Digital Assets. IRONSKY is not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions on the App, the Site, or the Smart Contracts.
C. The App does not store, send, or receive IRONSKY’s Digital Assets. This is because IRONSKY’s Digital Assets exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the App’s supporting blockchain on the Cardano Blockchain, or any other Blockchain we might use from time to time. Any transfer of IRONSKY’s Digital Assets currently occurs only on the Cardano Blockchain, but we might use other Blockchains in the future.
D. There are risks associated with using encrypted or digital tokens or cryptocurrencies with a certain value that are based on blockchain and cryptography technologies and are issued and managed in a decentralized form, including, but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your wallet. You accept and acknowledge that IRONSKY will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions, or delays you may experience when using the Cardano Blockchain, or any other Blockchain, however caused.
E. A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of the IRONSKY ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of IRONSKY’s Digital Assets.
F. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the IRONSKY ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of IRONSKY’s Digital Assets.
G. Upgrades by IRONSKY to the Cardano Blockchain or any other Blockchain we might use in the future may have unintended, adverse effects on all IRONSKY’s Digital Assets.
Your obligations under this indemnification provision will continue even after these Terms have expired or been terminated.

You agree that we shall have no liability to you for any loss or corruption of any such data, and you hereby waive any right of action against us arising from any such loss or corruption of such data.
We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss, damage, delay, or failure to act caused by any act, event, omission, accident, or cause beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, strikes, failure of a utility service or telecommunications network, the act of God, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation, or direction.
