(UEN: 202119545R), a private limited company incorporated in the Republic of Singapore having its registered address at 160 Robinson Road, #14-04, Singapore 068914 (“7Moments”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) provides its marketplace and services to you (“you” or “user”) through our platform, website and marketplace located at www.mauer.digital (collectively, the “Platform”). Access to and use of the Platform and the services thereon are subject to the following terms and conditions, as amended from time to time (the “Terms”). By registering for an account, or by using or accessing the Platform, you confirm that you have read and are deemed to have accepted the entire Terms. If you are representing a legal entity, you confirm and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms on behalf of such legal entity.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TERMS CONTAIN AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE, THROUGH WHICH YOU ACCEPT THAT ANY AND ALL LEGAL CLAIMS DIRECTED AGAINST US OR THE PLATFORM WILL BE SUBJECT TO BINDING AND FINAL AWARD BY ARBITRATION, INSTEAD OF REGULAR COURT PROCEEDINGS.
We reserve the right to amend these Terms at any time in our sole discretion without prior notice, in which case we will use our reasonable endeavors to provide information on such amendments on the Platform. The date indicated in the heading also sets out when the last amendment was made. Your continued use of the Platform constitutes an acceptance of the latest version of these Terms as applicable from time to time.
YOU ARE PROHIBITED FROM USING THIS PLATFORM IF YOU ARE NOT OF THE LEGAL AGE IN YOUR JURISDICTION TO ACCEPT THESE TERMS OR TO USE THE PLATFORM, OR IF LOCAL LEGISLATION PREVENTS YOU FROM DOING SO.
The Platform is a digital platform for collectors to purchase digital art collectibles endorsed by artists and digitally packaged to be represented on a non-fungible Ethereum-based token (each a “Collectible”). The artist’s/celebrity’s endorsement of the Collectible is secured contractually with the relevant artist/celebrity, who has certified that the Collectible will be the only personally authorized reproduction of the relevant digital art piece. The Collectibles on the Platform are represented on self-executing contracts between buyers and sellers (“Smart Contract”) on the Ethereum blockchain, that provides an immutable distributed ledger of all transactions that occur on the Platform.
You will need to use the MetaMask electronic wallet, the Venly wallet, or another supported electronic wallet, which will enable you to purchase and store Collectibles that you collect or purchase via the Platform. Payment is accepted both in fiat and crypto currency. Fiat currency payments are executed via Stripe checkout system, they are managed and confirmed through the Stripe network. We reserve the right to switch to an alternative payment infrastructure provider over time. When the aforementioned transition takes place, we shall update the Terms of Service accordingly or inform the users in another convenient way. Crypto payments are accepted in Ethereum, although we may elect to accept payment in other cryptocurrencies from time to time, in which case we will provide relevant information on the Platform. Crypto transactions that take place in the Platform are managed and confirmed through the Ethereum network.
7Moments does not provide storage or custodial services.
You are hereby informed that your Ethereum public address will be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction in the Platform.

7Moments rights to Collectibles
7Moments owns all legal rights and interests in all intellectual property rights to the Collectibles minted by 7Moments on the Platform, including but not limited to copyrights and trademarks. As a copyright owner, 7Moments has the right to e.g. reproduce, prepare derivative Collectibles, distribute, and display the Collectible.
7Moments warrants that Collectibles listed on the Platform do not contain unlicensed or unauthorized copyrighted content, content not authorized for use by 7Moments, content not in the public domain, or content otherwise without a valid claim of fair use.
License to Collectibles
Upon your purchase of a Collectible being completed in accordance with these Terms and being verified through the Ethereum blockchain, whether by purchasing it on the Platform or by subsequently acquiring it through a third party marketplace (each such Collectible, an “Owned Collectible”), you have the right to sell your Owned Collectible, or to give it away. You also receive a limited, worldwide, royalty-free license to use and display the Owned Collectible.
You may not, nor may you permit any third part to, do or attempt to any of the following activities without 7Moment’s prior written consent in each case:
● modify, distort, change or amend any Owned Collectible in any way,
● attempt to trademark, copyright or in other ways acquire any further intellectual property rights in any Collectible,
● attempt to mint, tokenize, or create an additional cryptographic token representing the same Owned Collectible, whether on or off of the Ethereum blockchain.
You are prohibited from using or displaying an Owned Collectible in connection with images, videos, or other media that depict hatred, intolerance, violence, cruelty, or anything else that could reasonably be found to constitute hate speech or otherwise infringe upon the rights of others.
7Moments is entitled to, in perpetuity, without limitation (i) display or perform the Owned Collectible to the public in its Platform or in third party media/platforms; (ii) create and distribute digital or physical derivative Collectibles based on the Owned Collectible, (iii) index the Collectible in electronic databases, indexes, catalogues; and/or (iv) host, store, distribute, and reproduce one or more copies of the Owned Collectible within a distributed file keeping system or other database.

Discharge from liability
You irrevocably release, acquit, and forever discharge 7Moments and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees and successors of any liability for direct or indirect copyright or trademark infringement for 7Moment’s display and use of an Owned Collectible in accordance with these Terms.
Third party content
If an Owned Collectible contains any third party intellectual property rights, you may not use the such third party content in any other way than as incorporated in the Owned Collectible and subject to the restrictions contained herein. You furthermore acknowledge that the owner of such third party intellectual property rights may from time to time prescribe further restrictions on the usage thereof which may affect the value and/or utility of your Owned Collectible.
We do not collect any fees, or royalties for transactions outside of the Platform. Users irrevocably release and discharge us and our subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, and successors from any liability for royalties, fines, or fees not received from any off-market transaction.
All transactions on the Platform, including without limitation minting, tokenizing, bidding, offering, purchasing, or confirming, are effected by Smart Contract. The Ethereum network requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas fee”) for all transactions that occur on the Ethereum network. Consequently, every bid/withdrawal/transaction occurring on the Platform is subject to a Gas fee. The applicable Gas fee varies significantly and is completely outside of our control. By using the Platform, you irrevocably accept any applicable Gas Fees and waive the right to make any claims whatsoever related to the applicable Gas fee, including but not limited to claims of invalidity of any bid/withdrawal/transaction in a Collectible.
Indemnity by user
The user shall indemnify and hold 7Moments, its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents and advisors harmless from and against any claims, proceedings, actions, fines, costs, losses, damages and liabilities arising from or in connection with any failure by the user to abide by the Terms.

We will not assume any liability for acts or omissions of any third parties, and we explicitly disclaim any liability for any damage that you may suffer as a result of your transactions or any other interaction with any such third parties.

Assumption of Risk
(i) No guaranteed value. The price of any Collectible is likely to be extremely volatile and subjective. Collectibles have no intrinsic or inherent value. The value of Collectibles may be materially affected by variations in the price of currencies, cryptocurrencies or other digital assets. We cannot guarantee that any Collectible purchased will retain its original value, as the value of Collectibles is inherently subjective and affected by circumstances outside of 7Moment’s control.
(ii) Tax Calculations. You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your Owned Collectibles and/or transactions in the Platform. We are not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions on the Platform.
(iii) Use of Blockchain. As a consequence of being on the Ethereum blockchain, neither Collectibles nor transactions are controlled by 7Moments or any other single party and there are consequently several material risks outside of 7Moments’ control. You will use the services of several third parties in connection with purchasing, selling or storing Collectibles and making payments, such as e.g. wallet providers, browser services or marketplaces. Third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored in your digital wallet. We do not assume any responsibility for the services of any third parties. Upgrades to the Ethereum network, a hard fork in the Ethereum network, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the Ethereum network may have adverse effects on the Platform and the utility and/or value of any Collectibles.
(v) Regulatory Uncertainty. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and tokens is highly uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Platform, and the potential utility and value of your Collectible(s). Regulations and interpretations may vary across different jurisdictions. We do not assume any responsibility for any such adverse effects.
(vi) Transactions. We are not a party in any of the transactions between you and other users in relation to this Platform. We are also not responsible for any payments owed by other users to you.
(vii) Accuracy. We accept no responsibility for checking the accuracy of data, programs or materials accessed through the Platform, including but not limited to the videos’ content, write-ups’ content, bid information and wallet information, and therefore make no representation concerning its completeness, truth, accuracy or its suitability for any particular purpose. Users should rely on their own independent investigations.
(viii) Conduct of other users. We are not responsible for the conduct of any user. You agree that 7Moments and its affiliates, subsidiaries, related entities or its partners shall not be liable (directly or indirectly) for any losses, damages or refunds whatsoever, whether direct, indirect, general, special, consequential, and/or incidental, arising out of or relating to the conduct of you or anyone else in connection with the use of the Platform and/or any other damages resulting from communications with other users or persons you meet through the Platform. You agree to take all necessary precautions in all interactions with other users.
(ix) Links. Links to other websites or apps are inserted for convenience and are not an endorsement of material at those sites, or any associated organisation, product or service. It is the responsibility of the user to make their own decisions about the accuracy, currency, reliability and correctness of information contained in linked external websites or apps.
(x) Technological risk. You shall assume all risks associated with use of the Platform including risk of your computer, software or data being damaged by any virus which might be transmitted or activated via the Platform or your access to it, and we shall not assume any responsibility or liability for the same.
You are not entitled, in whole or in part, to assign your rights or obligations under these Terms to any other party. We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms in our sole discretion to an affiliate, or in connection with an acquisition, sale or merger.
We may provide you with notices regarding changes to these Terms and other topics through the Platform. It is your responsibility to regularly visit this Platform in order to verify if there have been any amendments to the Terms and to assess any new information which may be posted.
Validity and Enforceability
If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions will not in any way be affected or impaired, and such provision will be deemed to be restated to reflect the original intentions of 7Moments as nearly as possible in accordance with applicable law.
The failure of 7Moments to enforce at any time any of the provisions of these Terms will in no way be construed to be a waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect the validity of the Terms or any part thereof. No single or partial exercise of any right under these Terms by 7Moments shall preclude any other or further exercise of it.
Nothing in these Terms shall create or be deemed to create a partnership, an agency or a relationship of employer and employee between you and us.
Notwithstanding termination of these Terms or the Platform, the following sections shall survive in perpetuity: Registration and security, Intellectual Property Rights, Fees, No Warranty, No Refunds, Limitation of Liability, Force Majeure, Assignment, Survival, Complete Agreement and Governing law and jurisdiction.
These Terms contain the entire understanding of you and us with respect to the subject matter contained herein. The Terms supersede and cancel all agreements (whether written or oral) prior to your use of the Platform.
Governing law and jurisdiction
All matters arising out of or in connection with these Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the substantive law of Singapore, without giving effect to any choice-of-law rules that may require the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
Any dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration administered by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC”) in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC Rules”) for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this clause.
The seat of the arbitration shall be Singapore. The Tribunal shall consist of three arbitrators. The language of the arbitration shall be English.
You and 7Moments further agree that following the commencement of arbitration, you and 7Moments will attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute through mediation at the Singapore International Mediation Centre (“SIMC”), in accordance with the SIAC-SIMC Arb-Med-Arb Protocol for the time being in force. Any settlement reached in the course of the mediation shall be referred to the arbitral tribunal appointed by SIAC and may be made a consent award on agreed terms.
