We may offer certain products, NFTs, and services for purchase on the Platform, including the generation of simulated artworks or ‘SIMs’ (each a “Digital Good”). Digital Goods: * may, where expressly stated in the description of such Digital Goods, include additional functionality, content, or subscription access to content or services; * may be unique or part of a limited series, or downloadable only once, or unlimited; and * may be subject to such additional terms or qualifications as stated in the description of the Digital Goods when sold.
You agree, in relation to any Digital Goods you have purchased, that you purchase the Digital Goods at the price set by the by the stepped bonding curve published on the site, or on any price list published by Simulacra, in each case as of the date that Simulacra accepts your offer (the “Price”) and in accordance with any description which accompanies those goods. Simulacra may, at its option, use third party platforms or wallet extensions to sell Digital Goods (“Third Party Sites”). You hereby agree to adhere to any applicable terms of service or privacy policies for those third party extensions or services.
Unless stated otherwise Digital Goods will be freely transferable, subject to the proviso that any transferee will be subject to these Terms of Sale. Once you have received Digital Goods, you are responsible for any loss or damage to, or loss of access to, the Digital Goods or any associated digital wallet or private key. Simulacra shall have no liability to you or any other person in such circumstances, regardless of cause. You expressly understand and agree that your use of our Platform and any Digital Goods is at your sole risk and that our Platform and Digital Goods are provided “as is” and “as available.” All sales of Digital Goods are final.
Once you have made a purchase of Digital Goods, we encourage you to promptly take the necessary steps to complete your transaction (e.g., activate or download a local copy of any content or secure any seed phrase or corresponding private key).
You may purchase Digital Goods using real or virtual/cryptocurrency if multiple payment options are made available to you. You may resell Digital Goods where this is permitted. Anyone receiving such Digital Goods from you agrees and is bound by these Terms of Sale.
