Notwithstanding the foregoing, in lieu of arbitration: (1) either you or Knights can bring an individual claim in small claims court in the United States of America consistent with any applicable jurisdictional and monetary limits that may apply, provided that it is brought and maintained as an individual claim; and (2) you agree that you or Knights may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
You agree that any and all disputes arising out of the use of this Site or these Terms shall be settled by binding arbitration conducted in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by these Terms.

Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
14. WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND JURY TRIALS
Please read this section carefully as it affects rights that you may otherwise have. You and we each agree that any proceeding, whether in arbitration or in court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If a court or arbitrator determines in an action between you and us that this class action waiver is unenforceable, the arbitration agreement will be void as to you. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, you and we each waive any right to a jury trial.
15. GOVERNING LAW
Except with respect to principles of conflicts of laws, any dispute arising from these Terms or from any other use of this Site shall be resolved in accordance with the laws of the State of California. The exclusive venue for any claim, action, lawsuit, or other proceeding arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be Los Angeles County in the State of California. Except as otherwise stated in Section 12 (ARBITRATION), the prevailing party as determined by the trier of fact in any such action, proceeding, litigation, arbitration, or other dispute resolution forum or judicial proceeding shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorney's fees and costs.
16. WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY
Our failure at any time to require performance of any provision of these or to exercise any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision or such right. All waivers must be in writing. Any provision of these Terms shall be severable to the extent that the provision, or any portion thereof, might be illegal, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable. The invalidity of any provision, or portion thereof, shall not affect the enforceability of the remaining provision(s).
We reserve the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Site or any features or portions thereof without prior notice. You agree that Knights will not be liable for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site or any part thereof.

3. License Terms.
(a) License Grant. Subject to Your continued compliance with this Agreement and only for so long as You own a Knights Collectible, Knights grants You with a limited, non-exclusive, worldwide, non-sublicensable license to use, copy, and display the Knights Collectible, along with any Extensions that You choose to create or use, solely for the following purposes, all subject to Section 4 (Restrictions): (i) for Your own personal, non-commercial use; (ii) as part of a marketplace that permits the purchase and sale of Your Knights Collectible; and (iii) as part of the Website or a third party website/application that permits the inclusion, involvement, or participation of Your Knights Collectible.

For the avoidance of doubt, the license granted in this Agreement applies only to the extent that You continue to own the applicable Knights Collectible. If at any time You sell, trade, donate, give away, transfer, or otherwise dispose of Your Knights Collectible for any reason, the license granted herein will immediately expire with respect to that Knights Collectible without the requirement of notice, and You will have no further rights in or to the Art for that Knights Collectible.

(c) Additional Benefits From time to time at their discretion, Knights or third parties may make Additional Benefits available to You.

It will be Your responsibility to keep apprised of the availability of any Additional Benefit and to take the necessary steps to apply for or collect any Additional Benefit. The terms and conditions applicable to any Additional Benefit will be set forth in the information or materials provided with the Additional Benefit and shall become a part of this Agreement for the duration of such Additional Benefit.

(b) Restrictions on Use. Without limitation, You shall not, nor shall You permit any third party to do or attempt to do any of the following without express prior written consent from Knights, in its sole and absolute discretion: (i) use the Knights Materials in connection with media that depicts hatred, intolerance, violence, cruelty, explicit sexual acts, or any other subject matter that reflects negatively on the Knights brand; (ii) modify or create derivatives of the Knights Materials for Your Knights Collectible in any way, including, without limitation, the shapes, designs, drawings, attributes, or color schemes (Your use of Extensions will not constitute a prohibited use hereunder); (iii) use the Knights Materials for Your Knights Collectible to advertise, market, or sell any third party product or service; (iv) use the Art for Your Knights Collectibles in movies, videos, or any other forms of media, except to the limited extent that such use is expressly permitted in Section 3(b) (Commercial Use) or solely for Your own personal, non-commercial use; (v) 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 Art for Your Knights Collectible, except as expressly permitted in Section 3(b) (Commercial Use); (vi) attempt to register any trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire additional intellectual property rights in or to the Knights Materials; or (vii) otherwise utilize the Knights, trade dress, name or logo for Your or any third party’s commercial benefit (including to register any domain names or social media accounts using any such intellectual property). Knights Collectibles may only be used and/or displayed on marketplaces, websites, and/or applications which cryptographically verify each owner’s rights to display the Art for their Knights Collectible to ensure that only the actual owner can display the Art and provided further that the Art is no longer visible once the owner of the Knights Collectible leaves the marketplace, website, or application, as applicable.
(c) Third Party Content From time to time, Knights may collaborate with third parties to create Knights Collectibles which include Third Party Content. You understand and agree that: (i) You will not have the right to use such Third Party Content in any way except as incorporated in the Art, and subject to the license and restrictions contained herein; (ii) that the Commercial Use license in Section 3(b) (Commercial Use) above will not apply; (iii) depending on the nature of the license granted from the owner of the Third Party Content, Knights may need to pass through additional restrictions on Your ability to use the Art; and (iv) to the extent that Knights informs You of such additional restrictions in writing, as provided for in Section 2(a) (Additional Terms), 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.

- (iii) that You will not attack, hack, DDOS, interfere with, or otherwise tamper with the smart contract associated with any Knights Collectible;
- (iv) that You will not participate in a sale to conceal or transfer proceeds relating to criminal activity or purchase a Knights Collectible for any reason other than to obtain the Knights Collectible;
- (v) that Ethereum is a volatile asset that often experiences periods of high price volatility and instability. Often a consequence of rapidly changing prices and demand, the Ethereum blockchain can also experience significant periods of network congestion, slow to stagnant processing speeds, and unpredictable failures; and
- (vi) that You understand and acknowledge that purchases made during a Knights Collectible may never be received or processed by the Knights Collectible smart contract due to network or smart contract failures.
(a) Terms of Transfer To the extent that you are not prohibited from doing so by any other terms or conditions applicable to a particular Knights Collectible, you may transfer Your Knights Collectible to a third party, provided that all of the following conditions are met:
- (i) All Secondary Transactions must be conducted through a marketplace or other platform that cryptographically verifies that You are the actual owner of the applicable Knights Collectible. You must comply with any applicable terms of the marketplace or other platform on which such Secondary Transaction takes place, and any applicable laws, regulations, regulatory guidance, and rules.
- (ii) You acknowledge and agree that all Secondary Transactions will be effectuated on the Ethereum blockchain, the blockchain network governing the Knights Collectibles, and You will be required to make or receive payments exclusively through Your cryptocurrency wallet.
- (iii) You may not transfer a Knights Collectible in any Secondary Transaction to a Transferee that is a Prohibited Transferee.
(iv) All Secondary Transactions are subject to the following terms: (i) the Transferee shall, by receiving an ownership interest in the Knights Collectible, be deemed to accept all of the terms of and be bound by this Agreement; (ii) the Transferor shall provide notice to the Transferee of this Agreement in the form provided in Section 8(c) (Transfer Notice), including a link or other method by which the terms of this Agreement can be accessible by the Transferee and ensure that such Transferee is provided with an opportunity to review this Agreement, and (iii) the Transferor shall pay Knights the Transfer Fee.
Without limitation of any other termination rights, Knights may suspend or terminate the license to the Art if it has a reasonable basis for believing that You have engaged in an off-chain sale of the Knights Collectible, or otherwise engaged in any off-chain transactions for the purchase or sale of the Knights Collectible without making the applicable Transfer Fee. You, and all subsequent Transferees, shall be responsible for paying the Transfer Fee associated with the Secondary Transaction purchase price, regardless of whether such purchase price is fulfilled on-chain, off-chain, or in a combination of the foregoing.
(b) Transfer Fee. Subject to Section 7(b) (Terms of Sale), Knights shall be paid on the same terms and at the same time as Transferor is paid by the Transferee. You acknowledge and agree that the amounts payable to Knights under this Section herein do not include and is not intended to cover any additional fees imposed or required by the transferring platform through which You transfer the Knights Collectible, including gas fees. For example, if You transfer a three dimensional, or 3D, Knights Collectible for $100 to a Transferee, $10 must be transferred to Knights and You will receive $90 (minus any applicable transaction or other third-party fees). If the platform or service used to facilitate the Secondary Transaction captures and pays the full amount of the Transfer Fee directly to Knights, then You will have no obligation to pay any additional amounts. Knights has the right to collect the Transfer Fee for Knights Collectible sales in perpetuity and may use those funds in any manner Knights sees fit.
(c) Transfer Notice. If You transfer a Knights Collectible on a third-party NFT marketplace, You agree to include a statement substantially similar to the following in the description of the Knights Collectible: “10% Transfer Fee Applies. See Knights Purchase and License Agreement and applicable terms for additional terms.” Such statement must include a link to this Agreement and any other applicable terms.

10. Assumption of Risk.
You accept and acknowledge all risks associated with the following:
(a) You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to Your purchase, sale, or transfer of Knights Collectibles. Knights is not responsible for determining or paying the taxes that apply to such transactions.
(b) Knights does not store, send, or receive cryptocurrency assets. Any transfer of cryptocurrency assets occurs within the supporting blockchain that is not controlled by Knights. Transactions in Knights Collectibles may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. Some transactions of the Knights Collectibles shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public blockchain ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that You initiated the transaction.
(c) The prices of digital assets, including NFTs, are extremely volatile.

Knights will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays You may experience when effecting Knights Collectible transactions, however caused.
(e) Digital assets, including blockchain based assets such as the Knights Collectibles, are subject to developing laws and regulations throughout the world.
(f) Transactions involving the Knights Collectibles may rely on third-party platforms to perform transactions which are outside of Knights’ control (including Ethereum). Therefore, (i) access to and interactions for the Knights Collectibles may be limited or unavailable, and (ii) You agree that in no event will Knights be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties.
(g) A lack of use or public interest in the creation and/or development of distributed digital ecosystems could negatively impact the development of the Knights digital ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of Knights Collectibles.

THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN KNIGHTS AND YOU.
15. Governing Law and Forum Choice
This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section 16 (Dispute Resolution), the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes that You and Knights are not required to arbitrate will be the state and federal courts located in the Los Angeles, California, and You and Knights each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.
16. Dispute Resolution.
(a) Good Faith Resolution Between the Parties. In the event of any first-party Dispute between You and Knights, then You and Knights agree to send a written notice to the other pursuant to Section 18(d) (Notice) providing a reasonable description of the Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. For a period of 60 days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, the Parties shall use their best efforts to resolve their differences. To this effect, the Parties involved shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to all such Parties. Knights’ decision to pursue amicable resolution, however, shall not be weighed against a finding of irreparable harm to Knights in any subsequent legal action.
(b) Mediation. If the Parties are not able to resolve such Dispute, the Parties shall next attempt to do so through the process of mediation before a single, mutually acceptable mediator. The mediator shall be a retired judge or a practicing attorney with experience in mediating disputes which are similar in nature to the dispute in question. If the Parties are unable to agree upon the mediator, then the Parties shall file for mediation with the AAA and hereby agree to accept the mediator appointed by AAA. The mediation shall be conducted and concluded within thirty (30) days after the mediator has been engaged. The Parties shall split evenly all mediation costs. The mediation shall be conducted at a suitable location within the County of Los Angeles in the State of California. In the event that such dispute is not resolved through mediation, then the Parties shall be permitted to pursue other remedies which may be available to them at law or in equity. In the event a party fails to participate in the negotiations or mediation required pursuant to this Section, such party shall be unable to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and related costs.
(c) Arbitration. If the Parties cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 16(b) (Mediation), then either Party may submit the Dispute to formal, binding arbitration in accordance with this Section 16(c). To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, a Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the AAA. If the Dispute has a claimed value of equal to or less than $250,000, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator who is a retired judge or a lawyer with not less than 15 years’ experience as a practicing member of the bar in the substantive practice area related to the Dispute, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. If the Dispute has a claimed value of more than $250,000, or if Knights elects in its sole discretion to bear the costs of arbitration in excess of those that would occur for a proceeding before a single neutral arbitrator, then the arbitration will be heard and determined by a three member panel, with one member to be selected by each party and the third (who will be chair of the panel) selected by the two party appointed members or by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator or arbitration panel, as the case may be, will apply applicable law and the provisions of this Agreement and any other applicable terms, will determine any Dispute according to the applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement shall prohibit a party from seeking equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction located in the County of Los Angeles in the State of California.
- (i) If a Party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within 60 days of the filing of a “demand for arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the JAMS using JAMS’ streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that You and a legal representative of Knights consents to in writing. The substantive practice area requirements for the arbitrator and the $250,000 threshold for the number of arbitrators assigned to the Dispute set forth in the paragraph above for the AAA arbitration will also apply to any such arbitration under JAMS or another arbitration service.
- (ii) You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows:
- (1) AAA: (800)778-7879; http://www.adr.org/
- (2) JAMS: (949)224-1810; http://www.jamsadr.com
(d) Nature, Limitations, and Location of Alternative Dispute Resolution. In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of this Agreement and can award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees). However, WITH ARBITRATION (A) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (B) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (C) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in Los Angeles, California. You and Knights will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Knights to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for Section 16 (Dispute Resolution) to be enforceable, then Knights will have the right to elect to pay such additional fees and/or costs and proceed to arbitration.
17. No Class Action Matters. YOU AND KNIGHTS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN EACH PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING
Further, if the Parties’ Dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with Your Dispute and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction or any arbitrator selected pursuant to Section 16(c) (Arbitration) above holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the Parties’ agreement in Section 16(c) (Arbitration) above to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Section 15 (Governing Law and Forum Choice).
18. General Terms.
(a) Limited Time to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST KNIGHTS, THEN YOU MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE) WITHIN 1 YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES -- OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
(b) Relationship of Parties. Nothing contained in this Agreement will be deemed to create, or be construed as creating, a joint venture or partnership between the parties. Neither Party is, by virtue of this Agreement or otherwise, authorized as an agent or legal representative of the other Party. Neither Party to this Agreement is granted any right or authority to assume or to create any obligation or responsibility, express or implied, on behalf or in the name of the other party, or to bind such other Party in any manner.
(c) Successors. This Agreement will transfer and be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties and their permitted successors and assigns, in particular any Transferee. Nothing contained in this Agreement will be deemed to create any third-party beneficiary right upon any f whatsoever.
(d) Notices. Any notices or other communications provided by Knights under this Agreement be given by posting to the Website or other website elected by Knights, for which You have prior notice.

Any notice to You related to a Dispute will be sent to You based on Your contact information provided to Knights. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then Knights has no obligation to provide such notice.
(e) Neutral Construction. Neither Knights or You will be afforded or denied preference in the construction of this Agreement, whether by virtue of being the drafter or otherwise.
(f) Severability. The provisions of this Agreement shall be severable and the invalidity of any provision, or portion thereof, shall not affect the enforceability of the remaining provisions. In addition, if any one or more of the provisions of this Agreement should be ruled wholly or partly invalid or unenforceable, then the court or other government body is authorized to reform the provision(s) to the minimum extent necessary to render them valid and enforceable in conformity with the parties’ intent as manifested herein.
(g) Survival. Upon any termination, discontinuation or cancellation of this Agreement, or a portion thereof, any terms which would be reasonably expected to survive shall so survive.
(h) Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including all additional terms, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior oral and written understandings between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Knights may amend this Agreement from time to time by posting an updated version of this Agreement to the Website. Please check this Agreement periodically for changes. Any changes to this Agreement will apply on the date that they are made, and Your continued ownership, use, and/or sale of the Knights Collectibles after this Agreement has been updated will constitute Your binding acceptance of the updates.
