The process is hereinafter referred to as "Certification".

You accept and acknowledge:
the value of an NFTs is subjective. Prices of NFTs are subject to volatility and fluctuations in the price of cryptocurrency can also materially and adversely affect NFT prices. You acknowledge that you fully understand this subjectivity and volatility and that you may lose money;
a lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of those ecosystems and related applications, and could therefore also negatively impact the potential utility of NFTs;
the regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, non-fungible tokens, cryptocurrency, and other crypto-based items is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Service and the utility of NFTs;
you are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your transactions. NFT-MAKER is not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your NFTs;
NFT-MAKER does not control the public blockchains that you are interacting with and does not control certain smart contracts and protocols that may be integral to your ability to complete transactions on these public blockchains. Additionally, blockchain transactions are irreversible and NFT-MAKER has no ability to reverse any transactions on the blockchain; and
there are risks associated with using Internet and blockchain based products, including, but not limited to, the risk associated with hardware, software, and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to your third-party wallet or Account. You accept and acknowledge that NFT-MAKER will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Service or any Blockchain network, however caused.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY EVEN IF THE ABOVE STATED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

5.1 Using the NFT-MAKER platform and granting of storage space
The sole possibility of using the NFT-MAKER platform and its API as well as granting of storage space after account registration is free of charge.
5.2 Software as a service (SaaS) for generating NFT's
Each minting process (Certification), is linked to a usage fee, which is due upon the successful sale of an NFT. The payment is not made in Fiat but by transfer of cryptocurrencies. The usage fee regarding the Services in cryptocurrencies shall be determined by the NFT-MAKER price list valid at the time of the certification process.
It is understood and agreed between the Parties that any payments made and any other consideration given under this Agreement are each exclusive of any value added (“VAT
”), which shall be added thereon as applicable and at the relevant rate. Where VAT is properly charged by the supplying Party and added to a payment made or other consideration provided (as applicable) under this Agreement, the Party making the payment or providing the other consideration (as applicable) will pay the amount of VAT properly chargeable only on receipt of a valid tax invoice from the supplying Party issued in accordance with the laws and regulations of the country in which the VAT is chargeable.
Each party will be responsible for complying with any and all obligations imposed on it under applicable law with respect to the collection and payment of any Taxes. Each party will cooperate with the other party, and furnish the other party with any customary written documentation or forms required under applicable law to enable the other party to comply with such obligations or to exercise any rights available under applicable law to minimize or to qualify for an exemption from any such obligations.
Moreover, the provider of the Cardano technology, in this respect might charge the customer a further fee for the performance of the process, according to their own current price list.
We accept the following forms of payment:
The technical processing of payments takes place on the Cardano blockchain in a single transaction. The End Customer has to pay the price agreed with the Customer in the form of cryptocurrencies to the Customer. The connection of the API or the publication of the project wallet address results in the automatic deduction, as part of the NFT file creation, of both the usage fee owed between the Customer and the NFT-MAKER and the fee owed between the Customer and the technology provider from the cryptocurrency amount paid by the End Customer.

9.1 Amendments and Supplements
Amendments, supplements or rescissions of provisions of these Terms shall be in writing and require the mutual agreement of both Parties to be valid. An amendment of this obligation requires itself a written agreement in order to be valid.
The provisions of these Terms shall be construed so as to be valid and enforceable according to Applicable Law. Should any provision hereof be unenforceable or invalid according to Applicable Law, it shall only be unenforceable or void to the extent of such unenforceability or invalidity and shall for the remaining be replaced by a valid and enforceable provision which shall satisfy the legal and economic meaning/result of the ineffective provision. The remaining provisions of these Terms remain binding and in full force. The same shall apply to any gap in these Terms.
