Welcome to Idition accessible at https://idition.com (together with the Idition app (the “App”), the “Platform”), which is owned and operated by Vine Digital, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Vine Digital” “we,” “us”, or “our”). These Terms of Service (“Terms”) are a legally binding agreement between you and Vine Digital and set out the terms for your access to and use of the Platform (however accessed, whether via web, mobile or otherwise) and the limited services made available through the Platform as described herein; including without limitation using our services to redeem, view and custody a Vine Digital Idition (as defined below) which memorializes certain purchases or redemptions you make on our partner’s sites and social media channels as digital collectibles and may also be composed of certain benefits as further described below (collectively the “Services”).
For purposes of these Terms, “user”, “you”, and “your” means you as the user of the Services.
ARBITRATION NOTICE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER: EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES DESCRIBED IN SECTION 15 BELOW, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND VINE DIGITAL WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
2. Our Services - Iditions
Our Services include hosting and maintaining the Platform which allows you to redeem a numbered digital collectible (an “Idition”) using the redemption code you obtained on our clients’ websites, social media channels and/or apps (“Client Sites”), with each Idition composed of certain components and features accessible only in our App as further specified in the applicable Idition Item Details (as defined below), such as a digital artwork, videos, images or other Content (as defined below), a voucher or discount code, or ticket to an event, access to a meet-and-greet (collectively the “Idition Components”). Where applicable and if specified in the Idition Item Details, an Idition (“Minted Idition”) or Idition Component may be implemented on a blockchain (such as the Solana blockchain), which uses smart contracts to link to or otherwise be associated with certain content or data and is associated with an Idition (a “Minted Idition Component”). Our clients may allow certain Minted Idition Components to be transferable on a Third-Party Marketplace (as defined below) or exportable to a third-party wallet. Not all Minted Idition Components are exportable and/or transferable, and you are responsible for checking the Idition Item Details in connection with your specific Idition (as defined below).
Idition Item Details. Descriptions of each Idition (“Idition Item Details”) may be made available on the Platform and/or our Client’s Site in respect of the specific Idition, which are incorporated by reference into these Terms. You are responsible for reviewing such Idition Item Details.
Redemption Code. An Idition, consisting of the applicable Idition Components, will be made available to you upon submission on our Platform of a valid redemption code that you have purchased or obtained on a Partner’s Site (“Redemption Code”) (you will be entitled to only one (1) Idition per Redemption Code, unless otherwise specified in the applicable Idition Item Details).
Redemption Code Validity. Redemption Codes are only valid for three (3) years from the date of creation (“Expiry Date”). A Redemption Code will be invalid after the applicable Expiry Date has passed. You therefore agree and acknowledge that you must redeem your Idition using the applicable Redemption Code prior to such Redemption Code’s Expiry Date.
Access to and transfer of Idition Components. You acknowledge and agree that:
a) Idition Components are only accessible through your Account (defined below) on the Platform;
b) If permitted in connection with your specific Idition, you may be able to sell, transfer, gift or otherwise dispose of a Minted Idition Component on Third-Party Marketplaces (as defined below), and upon such transfer you will no longer have access to the Minted Idition Component, which will transfer to the purchaser or recipient of the Minted Idition Component; and
c) certain Idition Components or Minted Idition Components are restricted to one time use (for example a discount code, or ticket to a concert) (“One-Time Use Component”). To the extent such restriction applies to any Minted Idition Components and you use such One-Time Use Component: if you are permitted to sell, transfer, gift or otherwise dispose of the applicable Minted Idition Component or Minted Idition and you do so, the used One-Time Use Component will not transfer to the purchaser or recipient of the applicable Minted Idition Component or Minted Idition . IF YOU PURCHASE, OR OTHERWISE OBTAIN, AN MINTED IDITION COMPONENT OR MINTED IDITION ON A THIRD-PARTY MARKETPLACE, VINE DIGITAL AND THE PLATFORM CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT ANY ONE-TIME USE COMPONENTS HAVE NOT ALREADY BEEN USED PRIOR TO YOUR PURCHASE. If you purchase, or otherwise obtain, Minted Idition Component or Minted Idition on a Third-Party Marketplace and any One-Time Use Component included in the associated Idition has already been used by a previous owner of the applicable Minted Idition or Minted Idition Component, Vine Digital will not be required to replace, refund or otherwise substitute the applicable One-Time Use Component.
Idition Component Content: Certain Idition Components, including any image associated with the Idition (“Idition Images”), are intangible, copyright-protected works, including but not limited to art, photos, music, text, and audiovisual material creative works, or other content (“Content”). You agree and acknowledge that the owner of the copyright interest associated with the Content retains all right, title and interest in and to the Content and your use of such Content is subject to the following limited worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, royalty-free license (the “Limited License”): you may view, copy, display or perform the Content solely for the following purposes:
a) For your own personal use and enjoyment, which does not involve any commercial use (commercial use includes but is not limited to an exchange of money, cryptocurrency or other value); and
b) In connection with your further sale, transfer, or other disposition of any Minted Idition Components on a Third-Party Marketplace, if permitted.
In addition, you may share and display the Idition Image, along with certain other information and metadata, using the ‘Share’ feature in the App, solely on your owned and operated social media channels.
The Limited License granted herein applies only to the extent that you continue to own the Idition associated with the Content. If at any time you sell, trade, donate, give away or transfer such Idition to a new owner, the Limited License will be transferred to that new Owner, and you will have no further rights in or to the applicable Idition Component or Content associated with the applicable Idition.
General: In connection with your redemption of an Idition and use of the Services, you acknowledge and agree that:
a) We make no claims about the identity, legitimacy, functionality, or authenticity of users visible on the Services.
b) Vine Digital is not liable for any inability for you to access any media file containing, embodying or incorporating a digital copy of the Idition Components (“Digital File”) for any reason, including as a result of any downtime, failure, obsolescence, removal, termination or other disruption relating to the servers upon which the Digital File is stored.
c) the ownership, possession or control of an Idition by you does not provide you any ownership, title or similar interest in any Content (defined below) or the Digital File;
d) In connection with any Minted Idition Component, Vine Digital does not control the public blockchains with which you are interacting and we do 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 Vine Digital has no ability to reverse any transactions on the blockchain.
e) If you have a dispute with one or more users, YOU RELEASE US FROM CLAIMS, DEMANDS, AND DAMAGES OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES. IN ENTERING INTO THIS RELEASE YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY PROTECTIONS (WHETHER STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE) THAT WOULD OTHERWISE LIMIT THE COVERAGE OF THIS RELEASE TO INCLUDE THOSE CLAIMS WHICH YOU MAY KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN YOUR FAVOR AT THE TIME OF AGREEING TO THIS RELEASE.
3. Your Vine Digital account
You will need to create an account with Vine Digital to use certain of the Services, for example to redeem an Idition and access Idition Components (an “Account”). We require all users to be at least 18 years old and resident in the United States. If you are at least 13 years old but under 18 years old, you may only use Vine Digital through a parent or guardian’s account and with their approval and oversight. That account holder is responsible for your actions using the account. It is prohibited to use our Services if you are under 13 years old.
When you create an account, we will ask you for some information about yourself, including your name and email address. We may also require additional information and/or documents. If you do not provide complete and accurate information and/or documents in response to such a request, we may refuse to provide you with the Services.
When registering, you will be asked to create a username. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and for any and all statements made and acts or omissions that occur through the use of your account. Our personnel will never ask you for your password. You may not transfer or share your account with anyone, and we reserve the right to immediately terminate your account in the event of any unauthorized transfer or sharing of your account. You agree to notify us immediately if your account has been compromised.
4. Third-Party Vendors.
Transactions; Wallets: All transactions, including the minting of a Minted Idition Component, made through the Services are managed and confirmed on the Solana blockchain or other blockchains as we may support (“Blockchain”). We may from time-to-time support a third-party electronic wallet, for example Metamask (provided by ConsenSys Software Inc.) or other electronic wallet-provider, which allows you to engage in transactions on blockchains (“Wallet Provider”). If this option is available, by using your wallet from a Wallet Provider in connection with the Services, you agree that you are using that wallet under the terms and conditions of the applicable Wallet Provider.
Third-Party Marketplace: You may be able to sell or purchase Minted Idition Components on third-party marketplaces (“Third-Party Marketplace”) and you may be required to set up an account with such Third-Party Marketplace in order to be able to store, trade and/or sell your Minted Idition Component.
Third-Party Vendors’ Terms of Service. By using the Services to do any of the foregoing, you agree to the terms of service, and, where applicable, the privacy policies of any such third-party vendors, including without limitation our Client Sites, Wallet Providers, and Third-Party Marketplaces (collectively, “Third-Party Vendors”). Except as expressly set forth herein, those Third-Party Vendor terms govern the transaction that is effectuated on the blockchain when you purchase any Minted Idition Component on a Third-Party Marketplace, including any related decentralized technologies (e.g., Solana), websites, services, tools, applications, smart contracts, and APIs which are provided by such Third-Party Vendors.
You hereby expressly grant Vine Digital the right, power, and authority to transmit your information to such Third-Party Vendors as reasonably necessary for Vine Digital to provide the Services to you. Vine Digital has no affiliation with any Third-Party Vendors. Because Vine Digital has no control over Third-Party Vendors, or their websites or mobile applications, you acknowledge and agree Vine Digital is not responsible for the availability of such external websites, mobile applications or resources accessible from those Third-Party Vendors, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, services, or other materials available from such websites or mobile applications.
5. Additional Services.
Because we have a growing number of services, we sometimes need to provide additional terms for specific services (and such services are deemed part of the “Services” hereunder and shall also be subject to these Terms). Those additional terms and conditions, which are available with the relevant service, then become part of your agreement with us if you use those services. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and any additional applicable terms we may provide for a specific service, such additional terms shall control for that specific service.
6. Non-Custodial and Custodial Services.
If you are using our Services solely through, or your account is linked to a third-party wallet, neither Vine Digital or the Platform are custodians of the contents of your wallet, your non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) held in such wallet, cryptocurrency or other funds, and you acknowledge that the operation of the Platform does not give Vine Digital or the Platform custody, possession, title or control of or to your NFTs, cryptocurrency or other funds.
If your Idition is a Minted Idition, or includes a Minted Idition Component, we offer an option for us to hold your Minted Idition(s) or Minted Idition Component(s). If you choose this option for us, we will hold such Minted Idition(s) or Minted Idition Component(s)to support and help facilitate transactions involving your Minted Idition(s) or Minted Idition Component(s). For clarity, in doing so neither we nor the Platform are custodians of the contents of any third-party wallets, NFTs you may own, cryptocurrency or other funds. Further, to the extent it does so, Vine Digital (i) takes no ownership or title to your Minted Idition(s) or Minted Idition Component(s), cryptocurrency or other funds; and (ii) to the extent permitted by law, shall not have any liability to, and shall be held harmless by, you for any losses, damages, claims, or liabilities of any kind to the extent arising out of the holding of such Minted Idition(s) or Minted Idition Component(s), cryptocurrency or other funds. If permitted to do so by the specific terms applicable to a Minted Idition Component or Minted Idition (see the Idition Item Details for further information), you may be able to transfer such Minted Idition Component or Minted Idition to a third-party wallet using the export feature on the App. Please note that not all Minted Idition Component or Minted Idition are exportable.
