TERMS & CONDITIONS
Revised: March 23, 2020
These Terms and Conditions constitute the Use Agreement and Terms of Service (hereafter the “Terms & Conditions”) between gala.games (referred to as “GALA” or the “Site”) and any person, customer, or entity (referred as the “User”) utilizing the website, GALA Blockchain and any products, features and services provided thereon (“GALA Services”). These Terms & Conditions do not create any agency, partnership, or joint venture between GALA and User. By signing up for an account through GALA or any associated websites, APIs, or mobile applications, the User has read and consents to the Terms & Conditions. The User also agrees to GALA’s Privacy Policy and Code of Conduct. These Terms & Conditions may be amended and updated from time to time at the sole discretion of GALA. Revised versions will be considered effective as of the date and time posted on the GALA Site.

1. GALA SERVICES
GALA is a decentralized distributed application on a blockchain network, using smart contracts (each a “Smart Contract”) to enable its Users to own, buy, sell, transfer, and share unique digital rewards that can be visualized on the GALA site through the GALA App.  

1.1 GALA Game Node. GALA Game Node is a computer software and hardware system connected to GALA. The GALA Game Node supports blockchain video games by maintaining the cryptography and confirming transactions on the GALA Blockchain through the GALA App. At the option of the User, the GALA Game Node may be recommissioned by the User to support other blockchains or other technologies. 

1.2 GALA Blockchain. The GALA Blockchain allows each User to store items, characters, digital rewards, and other attributes on the GALA Blockchain public ledger that allows for decentralized, immutable record of ownership. Each User owns the non-fungible token (an “NFT”) for any of the in-game items on the GALA Blockchain. When a User purchases, earns, or receives any NFT or digital reward the Smart Contract process, the User owns completely and outright the NFT and/or digital reward. 

1.3 GALA Reward. Each User of any game on the GALA Blockchain and associated GALA Game Node will be able to earn the GALA Reward. The GALA Reward is a digital reward and not a Security Token. GALA is not being offered to investors and there is no Initial Coin Offering (ICO) to promote GALA. Like BTC (which is the digital reward generated from the Bitcoin blockchain), GALA is created through a unique blockchain protocol. Each User that participates in the GALA Blockchain protocol shall receive 100% of the User’s allocated GALA Reward and any other digital reward or NFT, which is deposited in the User’s GALA App. The GALA Reward, any NFT, and any other digital reward may reside solely within the GALA Blockchain, and may or may not have value.

1.5 GALA App

1.5.1. GALA will provide each User with a GALA App. GALA will never take custody or control over any NFT or digital reward stored in a User’s GALA App. The GALA App does not store, send or receive any NFT or reward, but such transactions occur directly on the GALA Blockchain or other supported blockchains. Instead of the GALA App, the User may use any compatible digital app or wallet provided by a third party company that safely connects to the GALA Blockchain. A User may be able to use the GALA App or other compatible wallet to send and receive any NFT or digital reward with other users of the GALA Blockchain. GALA does not offer any User the ability to exchange one form of currency for any other form of currency (fiat or digital). GALA App is not a custodian, exchange or money transmitter. 

1.5.2. When a User creates an GALA App, the GALA Blockchain software generates a cryptographic private key and public key pair that the User must use to send and receive any NFT or digital reward supported on the GALA Blockchain. The User is solely responsible for storing, outside of GALA’s Services, a backup of any User’s GALA App, private key(s), or transaction information that the User maintains in the GALA App or otherwise with the GALA Services. If the User does not backup the GALA App, the User may not be able to access the GALA in the event that GALA discontinues some or all of the GALA Services. 

1.5.3. In order for a transaction to be validated on the GALA Blockchain, any GALA transaction through the GALA App must be confirmed and recorded in the distributed ledger associated with the GALA Blockchain. The GALA Blockchain is a decentralized, peer-to-peer network supported by the users of the GALA Blockchain, which is not owned, controlled or operated by GALA. 

1.5.4. GALA has no control over any NFT or digital reward generated through the GALA Blockchain, and cannot ensure that any transaction details a User submits via the GALA Services and GALA App will be confirmed or processed on the GALA Blockchain. The User agrees and understands that the transaction details submitted by the User via the GALA Services and GALA App may not be completed or may be delayed by the GALA Blockchain or any supporting blockchain used to process the transaction. GALA does not guarantee that the GALA App can transfer title or right in any NFT or digital reward, and GALA makes no warranties of title of any kind. Once transaction details have been submitted to the GALA Blockchain, GALA cannot assist the User to cancel or otherwise modify such transaction or details. 

1.5.5. In the event of a fork of the GALA Blockchain or any other supported blockchain, GALA may not be able to support the User’s activity related to GALA or any other supported NFT or reward. The User agrees and understands that in the event of a fork of the GALA Blockchain, any transaction associated with the GALA App or GALA Services may not be completed, may be partially completed, incorrectly completed, or substantially delayed. GALA is not responsible for any loss incurred by any User caused in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, by a fork of the GALA Blockchain. 

1.5.6. With respect to the GALA App, GALA does not receive or store a User’s GALA App password, or any keys, network addresses or transaction history. GALA cannot assist any User with GALA App password retrieval. The User is solely responsible for remembering, storing and keeping secret the User’s GALA App PIN (password), keys and address. Any NFT or digital reward a User has stored within its GALA App may become inaccessible if the User does not know or keep secret its GALA App keys and PIN. Any third party with knowledge of one or more of a User’s credentials (including, without limitation, a backup phrase, App identifier, PIN, or keys) can dispose of the NFT or digital rewards in the User’s GALA App. 

1.5.7. GALA does not currently charge a fee for the GALA App, receiving, sending, or storing GALA. However, GALA reserves the right to do so in the future, and in such case any applicable fees will be displayed prior to the User incurring such fee. Notwithstanding, the GALA Blockchain may have Blockchain Transaction Fees required to transact NFT or digital reward transactions through the GALA Blockchain. GALA may attempt to calculate for the User any Blockchain Transactions Fees, though such calculation may be inaccurate or excessive. The User may select a greater or lesser fee, and the User is solely responsible for paying any Blockchain Transaction Fees required on the GALA Blockchain. GALA will neither advance nor fund any Blockchain Transaction Fee on any User’s behalf, nor be responsible for any excess or insufficient fee calculation. 
2. PAYMENT TERMS.
2.1. Annual License and Monthly Service Fees.
The User shall pay a one-time GALA Game Node license fee and may be charged monthly service fee(s) for GALA Services. GALA or any of its affiliates or third parties may be the party that sells the software or hardware for any GALA Game Node.

2.2. Software License.
The User may be required to enter into a software license agreement with GALA or any third party for the use of any required software for each GALA Game Node. The User shall pay all associated software license fees. 

2.3. Equipment Purchase.
The User may enter into an equipment purchase agreement as it relates to the purchase of any hardware for an GALA Game Node. The User is not required to purchase such hardware, but may use any equipment technology (e.g. computer, GPU, cell phone, or other technology) that can appropriately and safely access and connect to the GALA Blockchain.    
 
2.4. Maintenance and Hosting Fees.
GALA does not maintain or host any GALA Game Node, but may refer the User to one or more third-party hosting companies that may or may not be affiliated with GALA. If the User elects and is part of a separate hosting agreement, the User may be required to pay certain data center operations, maintenance and power fees (“Maintenance Fees”). These Maintenance Fees may be deducted from the User’s digital rewards or GALA Reward.

2.5. Blockchain Transaction Fees.
The delivery and receipt of any of the User’s NFT or digital rewards through the GALA App may be subject to network or transaction fees charged by the blockchain associated with the User-selected algorithm (“Blockchain Transaction Fees”), which are non-refundable. Blockchain Transaction Fees are paid to emit, record, verify, and process a transaction on the blockchain. Any withdrawal or transfer of the User’s NFT or digital reward are subject to Blockchain Transaction Fees.

2.6. Other Third-Party Fees.
Certain digital apps, app addresses, tools, and third-party software and devices (“Third-Party Fees”) used by the User may also charge the User a fee, including a per transaction or transfer fee, which are non-refundable. The User is responsible for satisfying any such fee(s). The User should note that any such fees may significantly reduce the User’s rewards and therefore the User is responsible for managing the selection, use, rate and frequency of their receipt of rewards to any such Third-Party Fees.

2.7. Taxes.
The User is responsible for any taxes, and the User will pay for GALA Services without any reduction for taxes. If the User is required by law to withhold any taxes from its payments to GALA, the User must provide GALA with an official tax receipt or other qualified documentation to support such withholding, including value added tax (“VAT”), if applicable. The User will be liable to pay (or reimburse GALA) for any taxes, interest, penalties or fines which may arise from any mis-declaration made by the User. The User shall pay GALA for all taxes and governmental fees GALA is required to collect or pay upon sale or delivery of GALA Services. 

POTENTIAL USERS OF NFTS OR DIGITAL REWARDS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BITCOIN, ARE FOREWARNED OF POSSIBLE FINANCIAL LOSS AT THE TIME SUCH REWARDS ARE EXCHANGED FOR FIAT CURRENCY DUE TO AN UNFAVORABLE EXCHANGE RATE. MOREOVER, A FAVORABLE EXCHANGE RATE AT THE TIME OF EXCHANGE MAY RESULT IN A TAX LIABILITY. USERS SHOULD CONSULT A TAX ADVISOR REGARDING ANY TAX CONSEQUENCES ASSOCIATED WITH THE PURCHASE, SALE, TRADE, OR OTHER USE OF DIGITAL REWARDS.
3. USER OBLIGATIONS
3.1. Software and Equipment Allocation.
The User is responsible for the allocation of the User’s software and equipment and selected optimization decisions. The User acknowledges that GALA is not responsible for the selection or timing of blockchain protocols, nor is GALA responsible for the protocols selected for use in connection with GALA Services. The User is solely responsible for these decisions and shall monitor and allocate strategies through the User’s GALA App. The User acknowledges that the node transactions on any blockchain may vary and will not be uniform across each GALA Game Node. 

3.2. Log-in Credentials.
The User represents and warrants that the User is responsible for the preservation of confidentiality of the User’s login credentials on the GALA App and any other login for the GALA Services.

7. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
Each party represents and warrants that: (i) it has full power and authority to enter into these Terms & Conditions; and (ii) it will comply with all laws and regulations applicable to its provision or use of GALA Services. USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT USER DOES NOT RESIDE IN ANY REGION THAT EXPLICITLY BANS THE USE OF LOOT BOXES IN GAMES IN ACCORDANCE WITH GAMBLING LAWS.
8. DISCLOSURES & RISKS
8.1 Notification. GALA notifies each User of certain disclosures and risks associated with blockchain NFT and digital rewards and their associated technology and protocols. GALA Services are not an investment product, and no action, notice, communication by any means, or omission by GALA shall be understood or interpreted as such. GALA has no influence whatsoever on the GALA Blockchain, the transactions and consensus protocols, or the NFTs or digital rewards, including the GALA Reward. Ownership of a GALA App or Game Node or the use of GALA Services does not represent or constitute any ownership right or stake, share or security, debt or equivalent right, or any right to receive any future revenue or form of participation in or relating to any blockchain or digital reward, including the GALA Blockchain or GALA Reward. 

8.2 Digital Rewards. Digital rewards are not considered legal tender, are not issued or backed by any government, and have fewer regulatory protections than traditional currency. Moreover, digital rewards are not insured against theft or loss by any insurance corporation or any investor protection, including the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Securities Investor Protection Corporation.

8.3 Market Risk. The value of NFTs and digital rewards are derived from supply and demand in the global marketplace, which can rise or fall independent of any government currency. Holding NFTs and digital rewards carries exchange rate and other types of risk. The value of NFTs and digital rewards may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange traditional government currency for digital rewards, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular digital reward should the market disappear. The volatility and unpredictability of the price and value of NFTs and digital rewards, relative to government currency, may result in significant loss over a short period of time. GALA cannot guarantee or warrant the value of any NFT, digital reward or blockchain, including the GALA Blockchain and GALA Reward, and explicitly warns the User that that there is no reason to believe that any NFT or blockchain reward will increase in value, and that they may hold no value, decrease in value, or entirely lose value. 

8.4. Regulatory Risk. Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of virtual NFTs and blockchain rewards.

8.5 Technology Risk. Virtual NFT and digital reward transactions may be irreversible and losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. Some virtual transactions are deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which may not necessarily be the date or time the user initiated the transaction. The nature of such virtual transactions may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber-attacks.
9. DISCLAIMER
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR IN THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, GALA, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS SUPPLIERS DO NOT MAKE ANY OTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. GALA, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS SUPPLIERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE DELETION, FAILURE TO STORE, OR ANY LOSS OF ANY USER DATA, INCLUDING BLOCKCHAIN DATA, NFT AND DIGITAL REWARDS DERIVED, MAINTAINED, OR TRANSMITTED THROUGH USE OF GALA SERVICES. THE USER IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR SECURING ITS CUSTOMER DATA AND DIGITAL REWARDS. NEITHER GALA, ITS AFFILIATES, NOR ITS SUPPLIERS, WARRANTS THAT THE OPERATION OF GALA SERVICES, GALA BLOCKCHAIN, OR ANY OTHER SUPPORTED BLOCKCHAIN WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED. GALA, ITS AFFILIATES, AND ITS SUPPLIERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES OR OPPORTUNITY COSTS RESULTING FROM BLOCKCHAIN NETWORK AND PROTOCOL OR THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE ISSUES, WHICH MAY IN TURN RESULT IN THE INABILITY TO PROCESS TRANSACTIONS ON ANY BLOCKCHAIN AT ALL OR WITHOUT INCURRING SUBSTANTIAL FEES.
10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
10.1. Limitation of Indirect Liability.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, GALA AND THE USER SHALL NOT BE LIABLE UNDER THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR LOST REVENUES, OPPORTUNITY COSTS, OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, EVEN IF GALA KNEW OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT SUCH DAMAGES WERE POSSIBLE AND EVEN IF DIRECT DAMAGES DO NOT SATISFY A REMEDY. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY DOES NOT APPLY TO VIOLATIONS OF GALA’S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, OR THE USER’S PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS.
 
10.2. Limitation of Amount of Liability.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER GALA NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR SUPPLIERS, MAY BE HELD LIABLE UNDER THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR MORE THAN THE AMOUNT PAID BY THE USER TO GALA UNDER THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR THE 12 MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE DATE THE CLAIM AROSE, MINUS ANY REWARDS GENERATED OR RECEIVED BY THE USER AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF GALA SERVICES.
11. INDEMNIFICATION
Unless prohibited by applicable law, the User will defend and indemnify GALA and its Affiliates against any settlement amounts approved by the User and damages and costs finally awarded against the User and its affiliates by a court of competent jurisdiction in any formal legal proceeding filed by an unaffiliated third party before a court or government tribunal (including any appellate proceeding) to the extent arising from the User’s use of GALA Services.
12. MISCELLANEOUS.

If the parties do not agree on mediation, the matter shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration before a single arbitrator to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with International Dispute Resolution Rules. The decision of the arbitrator is final and binding on the parties, and enforceable in a court of competent jurisdiction. The prevailing party shall be entitled to costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees for the arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing GALA and the User agree that GALA may bring suit in any court of law to enjoin infringement or other misuse of GALA’s intellectual property rights. Any disputes that may arise beyond the scope of the arbitration provision shall be exclusively subject to the State or Federal Courts located in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. The User and GALA consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts. CLASS ACTION WAIVER: TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN A PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE ACTION, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING (COLLECTIVELY “CLASS ACTION WAIVER”). THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S CLAIMS OR ENGAGE IN ANY CLASS ARBITRATION. USER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT, BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, EACH PARTY WAIVES THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
