Terms and Conditions
Welcome to our SZNS Terms of Service (“Terms”). These Terms are provided by NFTree Labs, Inc. and our affiliates (referred to as “we”, “us”, “our” and “SZNS” or “Szns”) and govern some aspects of your use of Szns.io, the SZNS Website, and our other websites, webpages, platforms, applications, games, products and services (collectively, our “Site”). Throughout these Terms, we will refer to you as “you” and “User”. For the avoidance of doubt this excludes the SZNS DAO which is a decentralized autonomous organization empower by the Szns community and other ethereum holders to maintain/perform critical network functions related to the Szns protocol.
Our Site is provided to you to enable you to support and interact with your community and your favorite content creators, NFT collectors, influencers, athletes, musicians, artists and celebrities (collectively, “Creators”). For Creators and collectors, our Site enables you to engage with, receive support from, and create marketplaces for your fans, followers and other Creators. These Terms constitute a binding, legal agreement between you and us and apply to all Users who access or use our Site.
Szns is a decentralized peer-to-peer protocol that people can use to create liquidity and trade ERC-20, ERC-721, and ERC-1159 tokens, among other digital assets. While NFTree Labs Inc. d/b/a Szns manages the front end UI and website, owns trademarks etc, the underlying smart contract network (the “Szns Platform” or “Szns Protocol”) is made up of free, public, open-source or source-available software including a set of smart contracts that are deployed on the Ethereum blockchain protocol. Your use of the Szns protocol involves various risks, including, but not limited to, losses while digital assets are being supplied to the Szns protocol and losses due to the fluctuation of prices of tokens in a trading pair or liquidity pool. Before using the Szns Platform, you should review the relevant documentation to make sure you understand how the protocol works. Additionally, just as you can access email email protocols such as SMTP through multiple email clients, you can access the Szns protocol through dozens of web or mobile interfaces. You are responsible for doing your own diligence on those interfaces to understand the fees and risks they present.
Szns does not provide, own, or control the Szns Platform, which is run by smart contracts deployed on the Ethereum blockchain. Upgrades and modifications to the protocol are managed in a community-driven way.

As with any asset, the value of Digital Assets can go up or down, and there can be a substantial risk that you lose value buying, trading, donating and exchanging Digital Assets. You should carefully consider whether trading or holding Digital Assets is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.

(iii) you have not been previously banned from using our Site for any reason.
If you are unable to make these representations and warranties or don’t agree to any part of our Terms, you may not access or use our Site. Szns is a platform for collectibles, and collectors - just because this Site allows the trading of NFT’s that may depict art or graphics this is not a product for Children.
What you can do with Digital Assets on this Site
As described above, through the Site, you may have the opportunity to earn, buy, trade, donate, exchange and otherwise use various digital currencies, non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) and other assets, including assets native to Szns (collectively, “Digital Assets”). Digital Assets are not legal tender and are not backed by any government, and they are not subject to protections or insurance provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Securities Investor Protection Corporation.

You accept the risk of transacting with Digital Assets
While the Site may provide information about the estimated value of Digital Assets, including $SZNS, $BTC, $ETH and NFTs, and may include information about their historical value, the fiat value of all Digital Assets are subject to volatility and change, and Digital Assets could lose their value, both on an individual as well as a network-wide basis. Szns does not directly control and is not responsible for the value of any Digital Assets and makes no guarantee, express or implied, of their value in fiat. You acknowledge and agree that any purchase of or transaction in Digital Assets conducted by you or on your behalf is made voluntarily, willfully, and exclusively at your own risk.

PLEASE NOTE: Your ability to use all features on the Site may be limited, depending on your place of residence because of jurisdictional restrictions.

What it means to own a NFT
You may have the opportunity to purchase non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, on our Site. All NFTs minted and /or distributed through our Site and purchased or received by you are subject to the license rights described in this section, and you agree that any Creator NFT that you purchase or receive may be subject to certain licenses, restrictions and other limitations. Remember, just because you own an NFT does not mean you own the underlying copyright.
When you own a NFT, you are owning a digital token that represents ownership of a piece of art, a video or audio clip, a digital image, or any other work. However, it is important for you to understand that your ownership of the NFT does not give you any ownership in the intellectual property underlying the actual creation that is represented by the NFT. Similar to the way you may download a song, that digital copy of the song is yours to keep and listen to, but you don’t own the copyright to the song itself, and you can’t record it and sell copies for yourself.
Listing an NFT
If you list an NFT on the Szns Platform, you represent and warrant that you are authorized and have legal rights to list, sell, fractionalize or otherwise transfer the NFT on the Szns Platform. Listing an NFT on the Szns Platform that violates our Terms, or violates the Intellectual Property
The rights that you do not get through the Creator NFT that you own
Unless such rights are expressly provided by the creator of the NFT, the ownership of an NFT does not necessarily provide the following rights:
- You may not have the right to make commercial use of the creation underlying the NFT including, for example, by selling copies of creation, selling access to the creation, developing and selling derivative works, including merchandise, that embody the creation, including it within other media that you sell or promote commercially, or otherwise commercially exploiting, or allowing others to exploit, the creation in any manner. Again, the ownership of the NFT only relates to the NFT, and not the underlying creation.
- You may not have the right to (i) advertise or promote any third party product or service with the NFT; (ii) use or display the creation in a manner that associates it with hate speech, racism, intolerance, violence, cruelty, or anything else that could put the creation or NFT in a negative light or infringe upon the rights of others; (iii) attempt to trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire intellectual property rights in or to the creation; (iv) tokenize or mint a cryptographic token representing the creation; or (v) misrepresent the creator of the creation, including by claiming that you created it if you did not.
If you earn, buy and otherwise receive Digital Assets on the Site, such Digital Assets are owned by you. That information is not maintained by Szns, but exists on blockchains including, but not limited to the Ethereum blockchain protocol. Szns has no title or ownership rights over Digital Assets in your own wallet or listed on the platform. As the owner of the Digital Assets, you will bear all risk of loss with respect to the Digital Assets. Szns will have no liability for any change or fluctuation in the value of any Digital Assets.
