Date of Last Revision: May 15, 2023
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) are a legal agreement between you and OnChain Studios Inc. that govern (i) your purchase of the Digital Tokens, as defined in Section 1(b) (ii) your limited license to the Digital Collectible (as defined in Section 1(c) as well as (iii) your licensing, usage or access to any Service we provide.
Please review information below carefully before accessing our website, located at www.cryptoys.com (the “Site”), purchasing any Product, downloading any application, or registering/utilizing our Services, so that you are aware of your legal rights and obligations with respect to our Products, Services or OnChain Studios Inc. and any of our affiliates, parents and subsidiaries (individually and collectively, “OnChain”, “Company” "we," "us," or “our”).
Human-Friendly Summary: The information below represents a summary of the Terms that govern your purchase, use and ownership of any Product, as defined below, as well as your usage or interaction with any of our Services. This summary is provided to clarify binding legal information that may otherwise seem intimidating. For additional details and clarifications, please review the entirety of the Terms in detail below.
a. What are Cryptoys? Cryptoys are collections of collectible digital toys, playsets and related accessories on the Flow blockchain network that combine Digital Tokens with Digital Collectibles, as defined below. Some of our Cryptoys are based on our own propriety intellectual properties and brands, such as Zoo-F-O Escape. Other Cryptoys are based on licenses of our partners’ intellectual properties and brands. Throughout these Terms, the term “Products” is used to identify Cryptoys as a combination of both Digital Tokens and Digital Collectibles.
b. What is a Digital Token? A Digital Token is a non-fungible token (NFT) or unique digital certificate generated by a smart contract that entitles the owner of such Digital Token to a limited license to a particular Digital Collectible as specified in these Terms. The Digital Token is separate and distinct from the Digital Collectible. Your possession, control, or other rights in the Digital Token do not provide you with any ownership in the associated Digital Collectible or ownership of any intellectual property rights therein.
c. What is a Digital Collectible? A Digital Collectible is a digital representations of toy figurines, including digital packaging, that incorporate, reproduce, display, reference, are based upon, or otherwise use licensed intellectual properties that may be our own or those of our third-party licensors (“Licensors”). The purchase of a Digital Token grants its then-current owner a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable (except as otherwise expressly provided in the Terms), non-sublicensable license to access, view, display, and use the Digital Collectible associated with the Digital Token for personal, non-commercial use as specified in these Terms below. There may be differences in the limited licensing rights granted by different Licensors with different Digital Collectibles. Any such differences shall be explained in these Terms below. Except as expressly granted in these Terms, all rights are reserved by OnChain and its licensors.
d. What Services we Provide? We provide various capabilities made available through our websites, mobile applications, social media accounts, networking platforms and other technologies (together the “Platform(s)”). Some such services enable you to purchase, manage and interact with our Products. Other such services enable you to use our Products in a variety of games, applications, and experiences. All such Platforms, usages, capabilities, applications, games and other services shall be referred to collectively as “Services”.
e. How We Recognize Anyone’s Rights to our Products? Our Products are designed to provide utility within the Services we provide. Products may today be bought directly from us on our own Platforms. We’re also working on enabling purchases and sales between individuals (“Secondary Sales”), subject to restrictions and limitations placed by our Licensors. This may be enabled through our own on-Platform secondary exchange as well as any third-party exchange we specifically authorize and provide notice of (Third-Party Exchanges”). The term “Secondary Marketplace(s)” shall refer to both our own on-Platform secondary exchange and any Third-Party Exchanges. Nonetheless, we will only recognize your rights to any Products if you’ve purchased them through authorized means (e.g. Secondary Marketplace) and subject to these Terms. In the event you fail to agree to these Terms, breach these Terms or purchase a Product through unauthorized or impermissible means, we reserve the right to terminate your Products’ utility within our Services as well as your limited license to the associated Digital Collectible (see Sections 4 & 5).
f. Are there any geographical restrictions for Purchases? Some of the Products and Services we provide are subject to geographical and licensing restrictions that may prevent residents of certain countries and regions from opening an Account or making Purchases.
g. Do these Terms Apply to Secondary Sales? While we have yet to enable Secondary Sales, these Terms govern all rights and obligations to any Product you purchase, receive or gain control over regardless of whether it’s purchased directly from us on our Platforms, from any third-party on a Secondary Marketplace or by transfer. That said, there are rights that can only be exercised when a Product is on any of our Platforms, whether because it was minted there or it was transferred after being purchased on a Third-Party Exchange. There are a number of significant rights associated with our Products and Services that continue long after the Product is first sold on our Platform. These may include rights associated with your ownership of the Digital Token, your licensing right to the Digital Collectible, any utility within Services we provide as well as commissions paid on Secondary Sales. It is important that you read these Terms in their entirety prior to purchasing any Product on a Third-Party Exchange.
h. Commissions on Secondary Sales. Please be aware that we integrate through a smart contract, a commission for each Secondary Sale of a Product. That means that once we enable Secondary Sales, a percentage of the sale price of a Product listed for resell by one owner to another, will be directed to the benefit of the creator or licensor of the Digital Collectible, which may include the Company itself or a third-party Licensor. See Section 4(d). Any attempt to circumvent such obligations for commissions on Secondary Sales, either as a seller or a buyer is a breach of these Terms and may result in termination of rights of access to our Services or licensing rights to your Digital Collectible.
i. How can you use the Digital Collectible that is the subject of the Product? Current owners of a Product are granted a limited license to use the associated Digital Collectible as specifically defined in these Terms. These may include limited rights to use the Digital Collectible (i) as part of our Platform or any Service we provide; (ii) as part of any service operated by a third party that we specifically authorize and provide notification of; (iii) as a display or image of your identity on social media platforms; or (ii) in a Product listing on a Secondary Marketplace. All such uses of your Product are limited to personal (non-commercial) purposes (for additional usage rights, please see Section 5). The above notwithstanding, please be aware that, there may be differences in the limited licensing rights granted by different Licensors with different Digital Collectibles. Some of the rights listed above may not be provided for a particular Digital Collectible. Any such differences shall be explained in these Terms below. Except as expressly granted in these Terms, all rights are reserved by OnChain and its licensors.
j. What can’t I do with the Digital Collectible? Even though you own the Digital Token, you do not own the associated Digital Collectible. As such, you cannot (i) modify the Digital Collectible; (ii) use the Digital Collectible for your (or anyone else’s) commercial benefit; (iii) use the Digital Collectible to market any product or service; or (iv) use the Digital Collectible in connection with any prohibited text, image, video, or any other media that depict hatred, intolerance, violence, cruelty, discrimination or hate speech (for additional restrictions, please see Section 5).
k. Can the value of my Product change? Yes. The prices of collectible assets minted on the blockchain, such as our Products, are extremely volatile and subjective. These collectible assets have no inherent or intrinsic value. We cannot guarantee that any Product purchased will retain its original value.
l. How do I claim a reward I received as part of a Promotion? If you are entitled to a reward as part of a promotion we ran, please see Section 4(a)(iv).
m. Please read these Terms carefully, as they contain an Agreement to Arbitrate and other important information regarding your legal rights, remedies, and obligations (See Section 13).

Purchases are available using any supported fiat currencies or, if available, crypto-currencies as detailed at the time of purchase. Purchases may also be available using an in-game currency or token.
(i) When you purchase any Product, some may be made available through a surprise box wherein you will not know which specific Digital Collectible you’ll receive a limited license to until after the purchase is made and unboxing is initiated by you. Please be aware that the desirability of each such unboxed Product may differ based on the underlying licensed Digital Collectible.
(ii) Many of our Products may be sold with a clear digital package (also known as a blister pack) designed to emulate retail packaging. You may decide to keep the Product within the blister pack or unpack it. Please be aware that the desirability of any Product may differ based on its status as a packed or unpacked Product.
(iii) Quantity. We reserve the right to set quantity limits on any and all Products we sell. We may also limit the Product’s quantity-per-order over a given period of time.

d. Commissions on Secondary Sales. Please be aware that we integrate, through a smart contract, a commission on each Secondary Sale of a Product. Once we enable Secondary Sales, anytime a Product is sold by one owner to another, a percentage of the sale price will be automatically directed to the benefit of the creator or licensor of the Digital Collectible, which may include the Company itself and/or one of our Licensors. Please be aware that there are likely other fees charged by Secondary Marketplaces at the time your Product is sold to enable the transfer including transaction, gas and exchange fees. Any attempt to circumvent a smart contract and any such obligations for commissions on Secondary Sales, either as a seller or a buyer, is a breach of these Terms and may result in termination of rights of access to our Platform, any specific Service we may provide and licensing rights to the Digital Collectible.

12. Assumption of Risk and Disclosures:
a. Value and Volatility. The prices of collectible assets, such as our Products, are extremely volatile and subjective. These collectible assets have no inherent or intrinsic value. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of the Products, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot guarantee that any Product purchased will retain its original value.
b. Regulatory Uncertainty. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of the Products.

d. Products are not Securities. Your purchase of Products, including any associated Digital Collectible, or access to our Services are provided for your personal enjoyment. Our Products and Services are not securities as defined under the United States laws and are not suitable for purposes of investment, speculation, or financial gain. Your purchase of our Products does not entitle you to any ownership interest in any company, entity, project, or other endeavor. Your funds are not being pooled with the funds of other purchasers of our Products or used in any way to add to the Services we provide or Products we sell on our Platform.
e. Risk of Bad Actors. By purchasing any Product from us or accessing any of our Services, you acknowledge that a risk exists that some may exploit our Platforms or other systems, steal Products we provide or impersonate owners of Products. Some may also attempt to counterfeit Products, sell replicas of Products, or misuse Digital Collectible associated with our Products.
f. Risk of Bankruptcy. By purchasing any Product from us or accessing any of our Services, you acknowledge that a risk exists that the Company may go out of business, declare bankruptcy or cease operations, thereby decreasing the use or value of any Product.
13. Dispute Resolution
a. Prohibition of className and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
(i) YOU AND THE COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR className MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED className OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING.
(ii) UNLESS BOTH YOU AND COMPANY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR className PROCEEDING.
(iii) ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.
b. Mutual Commitment to Attempt a Resolution
(i) We are always interested in resolving any dispute amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing our customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(ii) If such efforts prove unsuccessful, you agree to notify us in writing, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to the Company should be sent to OnChain Studios. Inc., Attn: General Counsel, 9999 NE 2nd Avenue #301, Miami Shores, FL 33138, (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (b) set forth the specific relief sought.
(iii) For a period of 60 (sixty) calendar days from the date of receipt of notice from you, we and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the dispute. The above notwithstanding, nothing will require either party to resolve the dispute on terms which either party is not comfortable.
c. Resolution Procedure: If we cannot resolve a dispute as set forth above within 60 days of receipt of the Notice, then either you or we may submit the dispute to formal arbitration as provided in Section 13(d) below. The above notwithstanding, if the matter in dispute involves an Excluded Disputes, as defined in Section 13(e) below, then either you or we may submit the Excluded Dispute to formal arbitration only if both you and the Company consent, in a writing signed by you and our General Counsel, to have that Excluded Dispute subject to arbitration.
d. Arbitration Procedures
(i) This section on dispute resolution by binding arbitration is referred to in these Terms as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims, except as defined in Section 13(e) below as Excluded Disputes, that have arisen or may arise between you and Company, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms (including any alleged breach thereof), our Products or Services, any promotion or advertising, or any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a className action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
(ii) Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of these Terms as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement.
(iii) Unless the Company and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination will be made by AAA. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, the Company agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
(iv) Costs of Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement.
(v) Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
(vi) Severability. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the Section 13(a) above titled “Prohibition of className and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement will be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of Section 13(a) above titled “Prohibition of className and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement will be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of these Terms will continue to apply.
(vii) Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, the Company agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of our Services, you may reject any such change by sending Company written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
e. Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 13 will not apply to any legal action taken by the Company to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Company’s, our Licensors’, partners’, associates or affiliates’’, intellectual property rights.
f. Small Claims. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring a qualifying claim of disputes (but not any Excluded Dispute) in small claims court.
a. You agree that the Company, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate (i) your Account (or any part thereof), (ii) any utility or right associated with your Product, (iii) your license to the Digital Collectible or (iv) use of our Services and remove and discard any content within our Services, for any reason, if the Company believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms.
b. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities.
c. You agree that any termination, as provided in this section or under any other provision of these Terms, may be affected without prior notice.
15. User Disputes. You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions with any other user in connection with our Products or Services, and the Company will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. The Company reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of our Products or Services.
a. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and the Company governing your purchase, license, ownership, access and use of our Products and Services, and supersede any prior agreements between you and the Company. The above notwithstanding, our Licensors may directly enforce these Terms in order to protect any rights reserved to them under the license to the Digital Collectible.
b. These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida without regard to its conflict of law provisions. All Products and Services are offered from within the United States. If you purchase any of our Products or access any of our Services outside the United States, you are solely responsible for ensuring that your purchase, access and use of our Products and Services in such country, territory or jurisdiction does not violate any applicable laws.
c. The failure of Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
d. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or an arbitrator to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court or the arbitrator should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect.
e. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to our Products or Services or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
f. A printed version of these Terms and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.
g. You may not assign these Terms without the prior written consent of Company, but Company may assign or transfer these Terms, in whole or in part, without restriction.
h. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. As used in these Terms, the words “include” and “including,” and variations thereof, will not be deemed to be terms of limitation, but rather will be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.”
