6. Virtual Items, Trilium, NFTs

6.1 General rule

Subject to the following specific rules for Virtual Items issued as NFTs or Trilium, you will have no ownership rights in any Virtual Items in Alien WorldsTM. Such Virtual Items may be modified, replaced, altered or removed by Dacoco at any time under Section 10 of this Agreement, whether or not they were purchased for consideration or obtained as part of the gameplay.

6.2 Trilium

Dacoco may from time to time offer “Trilium” for purchase or as an award for certain achievements within Alien WorldsTM’ gameplay in accordance with the procedures and further terms specified within Dacoco’s sole discretion. Units of Trilium may be issued as tokens issued on the WAX Blockchain or otherwise as Blockchain based tokens and may be used to pay for certain other Virtual Items, advantages and services within or in connection with Alien WorldsTM, as may be offered from time to time. Trilium may be purchased within the Services using a credit card (or other payment means accepted by us, such as a debit card, prepaid payment card, or a promotional code or gift card) or other cryptocurrency. All sales of Trilium are final and non-refundable to the extent permissible under Applicable Law. Trilium does not constitute personal property, has no cash value, and has no value outside of Alien WorldsTM and/or the Services. Other than within the gameplay of Alien WorldsTM, Trilium may not be transferred or sold to any other person.

6.3 NFTs

Notwithstanding the above, Alien WorldsTM’ gameplay allows its users to own certain specific virtual assets, as Dacoco may design and release, within its sole discretion, from time to time, in form of non-fungible tokens issued on the WAX Blockchain or otherwise as Blockchain based tokens, as well as the underlying smart contracts (“NFTs”). NFTs may, but do not have to, be designed as digital collectibles and/or items with a function within Alien WorldsTM’ gameplay. Such NFTs are subject to the following policy:

Distribution of NFTs:

NFTs can be earned within Alien WorldsTM in accordance with the smart contracts’ functionality, as may be determined at the sole discretion of Dacoco, from time to time. In addition, Dacoco may at any time, but has no obligation to, offer NFTs for sale or otherwise distribute NFTs in such process and pursuant to such terms as Dacoco may determine within its sole discretion. This includes, without limitation, the right to provide NFTs at no charge to any individual user, or group of users of Alien WorldsTM, the Website, Materials and/or Services or to third parties. Unless otherwise agreed with Dacoco in writing, users of Alien Words, including the End User, have no preferential subscription rights or similar rights in connection with any issuance and/or distribution of NFTs by Dacoco.

Purchase of NFTs:

To purchase NFTs, you must have (i) an active User Account and (ii) an active WAX compatible digital wallet (a WAX-Account). Dacoco reserves the right, at its sole discretion, not to offer or to cease to offer NFTs for your purchase or to restrict your NFT purchases. NFTs may only be purchased at such purchase price and any NFTs available for purchase may only be purchased by such means and in accordance with such further terms and conditions as Dacoco may specify at its sole discretion from time to time.

Transfer of NFTs:

NFTs are not designed to be transferred other than within and as required by the gameplay of Alien WorldsTM. Dacoco reserves the right to subject the transfer of NFTs to a dedicated transfer policy, as drafted up at Dacoco’s sole discretion (an “NFT Transfer Policy”). Any applicable NFT Transfer Policy, as in force from time to time, shall be made available on the Website.

You acknowledge and understand that your transactions on the WAX platform are public and that your WAX address will be associated with these transactions. You further acknowledge and accept that you will be solely liable for any fees, costs, deductions or expenses associated with your transactions on the WAX platform. After an NFT is initially sold or otherwise released or put into circulation by us, we have no control over subsequent transactions. Accordingly, we will have no liability to you (or anyone else) as a result of any transactions that you engage in with respect to NFTs.

Risks related to the nature of the NFTs:

NFTs are subject to certain inherent risks, in particular because NFTs may be based or enabled by the Atomic Assets Smart Contract on the WAX Blockchain (or any successor digital item standard). These risks include, inter alia, the following, which you acknowledge and accept to solely bear when acquiring, holding, managing, using, selling and/or otherwise alienating NFTs:

(i) There may not be a market with a sufficient number of potential buyers and sellers of NFTs. NFTs may therefore not be liquid and you may not be able to effectively resell NFTs you have acquired. We make no representations or warranties that NFTs can effectively be resold.

(ii) NFTs may not have a use other than within Alien WorldsTM, if at all.

(iii) The value of an NFT may be volatile. Virtual currencies and assets can be very volatile and impact the value of NFTs. We make no representations or warranties that any NFTs will retain and/or increase their value. You might lose money.

(iv) The WAX platform may subject your ability to purchase, hold, manage, use, sell, and/or otherwise alienate NFTs to costs, fees, deductions or expenses, which you hereby agree to fully and solely bear.

(v) The WAX platform may not function properly and may be subject to hacking, malicious software, interruptions and failures. These events may cause delays or failures in your ability to purchase, hold, manage, use, sell, or otherwise alienate NFTs.

(vi) Atomic Assets accounts may not function properly and may be subject to hacking, malicious software, interruptions and failures. These events may cause delays or failures in your ability to purchase, hold, manage, use, sell, or otherwise alienate NFTs.

(vii) Laws may apply in certain jurisdictions and new regulations could be enacted that might limit or require changes to the functionality enabled by the WAX platform, which could impact and/or impede on your ability to purchase, hold, manage, use, sell, or otherwise alienate NFTs.

(viii) Other changes to the WAX platform could impact and/or impede on your ability to purchase, hold, manage, use, sell, or otherwise alienate NFTs.

6.4 Withdrawal right

In the event of a Ban resulting in the termination of this Agreement or if this Agreement is otherwise terminated following a breach by the End User, Dacoco shall have the right, without notice, explanation or liability, to withdraw or otherwise request the transfer to Dacoco or such third party as Dacoco may determine within its sole discretion (call option), of (i) all or individual NFTs and/or (ii) all or individual units of Trilium from the End User and to retransfer such NFTs, against such consideration (if any) as Dacoco may deem appropriate within its sole discretion, to itself or third parties.

6.5 Loss of access

If Dacoco’s withdrawal right is not exercised in connection with a Termination of this agreement, the End User shall retain ownership of their NFTs and their units of Trilium. The End User acknowledges and accepts that they may not be able to access, use, benefit from, transfer and/or otherwise dispose of such NFTs and/or units of Trilium following a termination of this Agreement. To the greatest extent permitted by law and without limiting the generality of Section 14, Dacoco shall neither have any liability for any damage resulting from such loss of access, nor any obligation to refund the purchase price paid for the relevant NFTs and/or units of Trilium to the End User.

7. Compliance

You acknowledge that certain operations in respect of the NFTs, in particular, without limitation, the transfer of NFTs to third parties, may constitute and/or otherwise fall within the scope of regulated activities under Applicable Law in certain jurisdictions. You acknowledge that you may not use Alien WorldsTM to engage into any such activities and that Dacoco makes no representation in respect of, or otherwise in connection with, the suitability of Alien WorldsTM and/or any output generated by using Alien WorldsTM, to engage into any regulated activity or Alien WorldsTM’ or such output’s compliance with laws and regulations applicable to such activities.

You will, however, promptly notify Dacoco in writing of such a claim and Dacoco shall have the right, within its sole discretion, to direct any procedural actions in which it has a direct or indirect interest.

16. External Links and Third Party Services

Alien WorldsTM may contain links, references and features that enable you to access other third-party websites or services, which are not owned or controlled by Dacoco (“Third Party Services”). Any such links, references and features are provided as a convenience and for informational purposes only. They do not constitute an endorsement or an approval by Dacoco of any of the products, services or opinions of the relevant entity or organization or individual. 

Where the gameplay of Alien WorldsTM requires Third Party Services for certain functions, e.g. for the custody of digital items or assets, Dacoco does not recommend or mandate the use of any specific Third Party Service. 

You are solely responsible for: (i) comprehensively informing yourself about the risks and benefits associated with Third Party Services prior to entering into any transactions with regard to such services; (ii) your selection of Third Party Services you may want to make use of; (iii) any transaction you enter into with a provider of Third Party Services; (iv) any use you make of Third Party Services and (v) the protection of your privacy and data in connection with Third Party Services. 

YOU SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION BEFORE YOU FOLLOW ANY LINKS TO OR ENTER INTO ANY TRANSACTION WITH A PROVIDER OF THIRD PARTY SERVICES. 

You acknowledge and agree that: (a) Third Party Services are governed by their own terms of use; (b) we are not responsible for Third Party Services; (c) any link or reference to Third Party Services within Alien WorldsTM does not, and shall not be understood to, imply any endorsement, affiliation, sponsorship or recommendation on our part in respect of such services or their providers; (d) without limitation to the generality of section 13 above, we make no representation and give no warranty whatsoever with respect to Third Party Services; (e) to the greatest extent admissible under Applicable Law, Dacoco shall have no liability for or in connection with Third Party Services, in particular, without limitation, in connection with their availability, cost, content, advertising, compliance, noninfringement, compatibility with Alien WorldsTM, fitness for purpose, or any transactions you may enter into with regard to Third Party Services; and (f) you shall not, under any circumstances, cause Dacoco to become a party to any dispute whatsoever between you and third parties concerning Third Party Services.

17. No Partnership or Agency

Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to establish, and the Parties shall refrain from any representation or other act that could lead any affiliate or third party to believe that they have established, a partnership within the meaning of art. 530 et seq. of the Swiss Code of Obligations (CO) and/or any other form of partnership or company, and/or an agency within the meaning of art. 418a et seq. CO.

18. Breach and Remedies

You understand and agree that observance of your obligations hereunder is of significant importance to Dacoco and that, if you breach this Agreement, Dacoco would incur serious losses and other detrimental consequences which might not easily be cured.

If you breach any provision of or undertaking under this Agreement, Dacoco shall have the right to seek specific performance (“Realexekution”) in respect of your obligations under this Agreement, including but not limited to the right to request that you cease and/or desist from committing any breach of such obligations, whether or not this forces you to abandon any commercial activity or not to pursue any opportunities at that time (cease and desist injunction).

Dacoco has the right to seek interim legal protection (“Vorsorgliche Massnahmen”) to prevent detrimental consequences and effects that cannot easily be remedied or to ensure an effective enforcement of your obligations under this Agreement. In such event, you fully waive any right you may have under Applicable Law to request the provision of securities (“Sicherheitsleistung”) by Dacoco.

19. Term and Termination

This Agreement shall remain in effect for a term of 30 calendar days, beginning on such date as it is entered into. Upon expiry of such initial term, this Agreement shall remain in effect for successive additional terms of 30 calendar days each, unless terminated by either Party no later than 15 days prior the end of the relevant term.

This Agreement (and therefore your right to make Permitted Use of Alien WorldsTM) shall be terminated with immediate effect in the event that an Incremental Fee is not paid within the applicable 10 day period.

In addition, Dacoco may terminate this Agreement if, in our sole discretion, we determine that there has been a breach of these Terms of Use, a material breach of any other agreement between the Parties or a violation of law. If the cause of such termination is reasonably capable of being remedied, we will provide you notice of what actions you must take to reinstate a state acceptable to us within our sole discretion. If you fail to take such actions or the cause cannot be remedied within 10 calendar days, the Agreement will be terminated with immediate effect.

Upon termination, all licenses granted herein end immediately. You will cease using Alien WorldsTM and return to us or uninstall and destroy any Materials you may have in your possession. Termination of the Agreement will not relieve you of your obligation to pay any amounts you owe up to and including the date of termination.

The effects of an expiry or termination of this Agreement on any NFTs are governed by Section 6 hereof.

20. Miscellaneous

20.1 Notifications

In registering your User Account, but in any event before using Alien WorldsTM, you will provide to Dacoco a valid email address (the “Notification Address”). You acknowledge and accept that Dacoco shall send any notifications to you hereunder (also including any invoice), by way of simple unencrypted email to the Notification Address. Any such notification shall be deemed received when it is sent by Dacoco to the Notification Address.

You undertake to keep the Notification Address valid and in effect for the entire duration of this Agreement or to promptly notify Dacoco in writing prior to any change of the Notification Address.

Notices to Dacoco shall be made by registered mail to Dacoco’s registered address.

20.2 Terminology

In materials other than these Terms of Use and the Alien WorldsTM policies released by Dacoco (such other materials, e.g. marketing materials, other communications or materials released by third parties which may or may not be related to Dacoco, the “Other Materials”), certain features and actions of Alien WorldsTM may be referred to using terminology which deviates from the terminology used in these Terms of Use.

Among other terms, the term “syndicate” may be used to designate a Planetary DAO and the term “pledging” may be used to designate the action and/or the of staking.

For the avoidance of doubt, these Terms of Use shall apply to the concepts they address regardless of the terminology used by Other Materials to describe or refer to them and the terms used in these Terms of Use shall be deemed to include any and all alternative terms used by Dacoco and/or its affiliates to describe the same actions, functions, features, effects or concepts of the game. 

Terms used by Dacoco and/or its affiliates in Other Materials to describe or refer to Alien WorldsTM’ actions, functions, features, effects or concepts are used solely for such purpose, irrespective of any other meaning or significance ascribed to them, whether generally or within a specific context. No meaning or effect, whether legal or otherwise, shall be inferred or derived from the use of a specific term in Other Materials to refer to a specific action, function, feature, effect or concept of Alien WorldsTM unless these Terms of Use or the relevant policy released by Dacoco ascribe such meaning or effect to the relevant term. In particular, without limiting the generality of the foregoing:

– the use of the term “syndicate” shall not be construed to imply any contractual relationship among the members of the relevant Planetary DAO, other than explicitly instituted through DAO Governance; and 

– the use of the term “pledging” to designate the action of staking within Alien WorldsTM shall not be understood to imply the constitution, provision of or the entry into any guarantee, surety, assumption of liability or any other transaction of similar nature or effect.  

20.3 Order of Precedence

These Terms of Use govern the relationship between the End User and Dacoco. In the event of inconsistency, it prevails over any conflicting provision, statement or other information contained in any ancillary materials, in particular, without limitation, Alien WorldsTM’ technical blueprint (as updated from time to time; the “Technical Blueprint”; available under: alienworlds.io/alien-worlds-blockchain-technical-blueprint/), ancillary policies released from time to time by Dacoco in respect of certain aspects of Alien WorldsTM (unless specifically provided otherwise in such policies); the Membership Terms and Notices, as entered into by the End User upon joining a Planetary DAO and the Website (as updated from time to time; available under alienworlds.io).

As a decentralized metaverse, Alien WorldsTM relies on certain mechanics and powers instituted and governed by each Planetary DAO, as in force from time to time (“DAO Governance”). These Terms of Use shall, in any event, prevail over the terms and/or effects of any DAO Governance and no DAO Governance shall be enacted or otherwise effected by a planetary council or other body of a Planetary DAO if such action would result in a contradiction or otherwise in an inconsistency between the relevant DAO Governance and these Terms of Use.

20.4 Language

These Terms of Use may be translated into various other languages than English as part of their distribution. Any such translation is for convenience only and shall have no legal effect. Only the English language version, as in force from time to time, shall be authoritative and shall prevail over any other version in the event of inconsistencies.

20.5 Amendments

Dacoco reserves the right to amend these Terms of Use from time to time upon placing any such amendments on the Website or by providing you direct notice of any such changes. Your continued use of any of the Website, Materials and Services thereafter will be deemed to as acceptance by you of any such changes to this Agreement.

20.6 Assignment

You may not assign any of your rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of the law or otherwise.

20.7 No Waiver

The failure of Dacoco to exercise or enforce any right under this Agreement shall neither be deemed to be a waiver of that right nor operate to bar the exercise or enforcement of it at any time or times thereafter.

20.8 Severability

If any provision, or portion of a provision, contained in the Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions, or the remaining portion of such provision, shall remain in full force and effect. Instead of the invalid provision, a rule shall apply that achieves as closely as possible the intention of the parties in drafting the invalid provision.

20.9 Applicable Law and Jurisdiction

To the maximum extent allowed under Applicable Law, this Agreement is governed by the substantive laws of Switzerland, to the exclusion of its rules of conflict of laws and to the exclusion of international treaties.

To the maximum extent allowed under Applicable Law, all disputes under or in connection with this Agreement shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the ordinary courts of Zug, Switzerland, and each of the parties undertakes to fully subject itself to such jurisdiction, always provided that each of the parties shall be entitled to seek preliminary measures and injunctive relief before any competent court according to applicable law.

Without limitation to the scope and/or effect of the foregoing, YOU AND DACOCO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Dacoco agree otherwise, an arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person\’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
