Terms & Conditions
Last Updated: 18 February, 2022
These Terms & Conditions constitute a legally binding agreement made between the user (“you”), whether personally or on behalf of an entity and Choosedama, domiciled in Italy. (The Company”;“we”) concerning your access to and use of nft.choosedama.com website and the smart-contract based Choosedama application (“App” or “Application”) as well as any other media form, media channel, mobile website or mobile application, smart contracts related, linked, or otherwise connected thereto (the “website”, Site” and the “App”).
The Inhabitants are a digital art collectible built on top of the Ethereum network. The collection consists of over 10,000 unique digital image that are hashed on the blockchain and are represented by a non-fungible token (“NFT”) each. Our smart contract allows participants to purchase the NFT representing digital art. After the sale of an NFT to you, the ownership of the NFT, and to the connected art, is transferred from the Ethereum smart contract to the purchaser and concludes the business transaction between both parties.
A. If you decide to purchase a “The Inhabitants” from the contract, any financial transactions will be conducted solely through the Ethereum network. We have no control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any transactions. With that in mind, the company 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, or using the Smart Contracts, or any other transactions that you conduct via the Ethereum network.
B. Ethereum requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network. The Gas Fee funds the network of computers that run the decentralized Ethereum network. This means that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the App. The Gas Fee does not go to us and we have no control over its pricing.
C. All paid prices exclude any possible duties or charges. 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 our NFTs (including, without limitation, any Taxes that may become payable as the result of your ownership of a “The Inhabitants“.
I. You own the NFT. Each “The Inhabitants” is a NFT on the Ethereum blockchain. When you purchase a NFT, you own a “The Inhabitants”. 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 “The Inhabitants”.
II. Personal Use: Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, Choosedama grants you a worldwide, exclusive, royalty-free license to use, copy, and display the purchased Visual Art and Music, along with any extensions that you choose to create or use, solely for the following purposes: (1.) for your own personal, non-commercial use; (2.) as part of a marketplace that permits the purchase and sale of your “The Inhabitants” / NFT, provided that the marketplace cryptographically verifies each “The Inhabitants” owner’s rights to display the Art and Music for their “The Inhabitants” to ensure that only the actual owner can display the Art or Musict; or (3.) as part of a third party website or application that permits the inclusion, involvement, or participation of your “The Inhabitants”, provided that the website/application cryptographically verifies each “The Inhabitants” owner’s rights to display the Art for their “The Inhabitants” to ensure that only the actual owner can display the Art, and provided that the Art is no longer visible once the owner of the “The Inhabitants” leaves the website/application.
III. Commercial Use: Subject to your continued compliance with these Terms, The Company grants you an limited, worldwide, exclusive, license to use, copy, and display the purchased Visual Art for the purpose of creating derivative works based upon the Visual Art (“Commercial Use”) only. You cannot use the name “The Inhabitants” on any commercial product unless connected directly to a “#” and the number of your “The Inhabitants” signifying the NFT you own. You agree not to use your “The Inhabitants” in any project or derivative work that involves hate speech, racism, pornography, or any other illegal content.
You confirm to not be domiciled in or organized under the laws of any country, whose legislation conflicts with the present purchase of NFTs on the Etherum blockchain or the purpose of Choosedama in general. You agree that you may not, nor permit any third party to do or attempt to do any of the foregoing without Choosedama’s express prior written consent in each case: (1.) use the Visual Art for your Purchased “The Inhabitants” to advertise, market, or sell any third party product or service; (2.) use the Visual Art for your Purchased “The Inhabitants” 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; (3.) sell, distribute for commercial gain (including, without limitation, giving away in the hopes of eventual commercial gain), or otherwise commercialize merchandise that includes, contains, or consists of the Visual Art for your Purchased “The Inhabitants”, except as expressly permitted in these Terms; (4.) attempt to trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire additional intellectual property rights in or to the Visual Art for your Purchased “The Inhabitants”; or (e.g., licensed intellectual property from a celebrity, athlete, or other public figure), you understand and agree as follows: Choosedama may need to pass through additional restrictions on your ability to use the Visual Art and to the extent that Choosedama informs you of such additional restrictions in writing (email is permissible), you will be responsible for complying with all such restrictions from the date that you receive the notice, and that failure to do so will be deemed a breach of this license. The restrictions in this Section will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms.
In the event of any Force Majeure Event (including a pandemic), breach of these Terms, or any other event that would make provision of the Site commercially unreasonable for Choosedama, we may, in our discretion and without liability to you, with or without prior notice, suspend your access to all or a portion of the App or the Site.
We may terminate your access to the App or the Site as far as technically feasible in our sole discretion, immediately and without prior notice, and delete or deactivate your Account and all related information and files in such account without liability to you, including, for instance, in the event that you breach any term of these Terms.

F. Upgrades by Ethereum to the Ethereum platform, a hard fork in the Ethereum platform, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the Ethereum platform may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using the ERC-721 standard, including the Choosedama ecosystem.
G. Choosedama is dedicated to continue to develop “The Inhabitants” project and community. We have released information outlining some of the future goals we hope to accomplish. While we intend to work towards those goals, sometimes things happen and we cannot guarantee that this original project will sell out entirely nor can we guarantee future developments.
