As a Holder, you are solely responsible for the safety of the Rektguy NFTs that are attributed to your Wallet, including the proper management and safety of any Wallet used to store your Rektguy NFT, and the implementation of relevant security measures.
Please note that the decentralised nature of distributed ledger technology (such as the Ethereum Network) makes it impossible for us to reverse, cancel, undo or otherwise alter any transaction and/or transfer. You are solely responsible for any transaction requested through your Wallet.
You are solely and entirely responsible for complying with applicable law and regulations, including your obligations to pay any tax liability which may arise out of or in connection with your ownership of your Rektguy NFT. Please be aware that changes in applicable laws and regulations may impact the Website and your rights and obligations regarding your Rektguy NFTs.
Rektguy NFTs may be available for purchase on the secondary market on third-party platforms, such as OpenSea (as available at https://opensea.io), and/or other marketplaces (each, a “NFT Marketplace”). Please note that we do not operate any such NFT Marketplace and that, therefore, your access and use of any such NFT Marketplace is subject to the terms of the specific NFT Marketplace you are using.
You undertake to defend us against any claim or action arising out of or in connection with your use of the Rektguy NFTs in contravention to these Terms, including where any such use infringes the Intellectual Property Rights of a third party (provided such claim does not relate to the unaltered Rektguy as designed by us), and you shall fully indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any losses, damages, costs (including all legal fees) and expenses incurred by or awarded against us as a result of, or in connection with, any such claim or action.
Risks you should be aware of
Please be aware that the Rektguy NFTs are only intended and offered as collectibles, and that the Rektguy NFTs do not represent an investment, nor grant any right to perceive financial benefits or governance over any projects or the Company.
The Rektguy NFTs are unregulated cryptoassets. When you buy cryptoassets your capital is at risk. Risks associated with cryptoassets include price volatility, loss of capital (the value of your cryptoassets could drop to zero), complexity, lack of regulation and lack of protection.
The Company does not currently operate in a regulated industry. Therefore, please be aware that when you buy cryptoassets, you are not protected under the kind of financial compensation schemes and protections that are in place for investors who deal with entities that are regulated and authorised to operate as financial services firms (e.g. which can protect/compensate you if you were to invest in a regulated financial services firm’s products and that firm subsequently went bankrupt).
