1.4 Use of the full functionality of the NFT Platform and the ability to obtain NFTs from 0xNXT on the NFT Platform requires that a User holds a Wallet supported by RainbowKit.

 

§2
Use of the NFT Platform by the User

2.1 A prerequisite for the use of the NFT Platform by the User is the technical linking of his/her Wallet with the NFT Platform. This is done by clicking on the "Connect Wallet" button, specifying the Wallet address and granting access rights to the public key of the Wallet. 0xNXT has no access to and does not store or manage Users' private cryptographic keys or NFTs.

 

2.2 The Platform Usage Agreement comes into effect by a contract offer of the User through clicking on the “Connect Wallet” button and its acceptance by 0xNXT through confirming the successful linking of the Wallet by displaying it at the top right of the NFT Platform screen.

 

2.3 The User may temporarily unlink his/her Wallet from the NFT Platform by clicking on the User’s displayed wallet address at the top of the website, then clicking on “Disconnect” in the dropdown menu as well as again in the following pop-up window on the NFT Platform. For a permanent termination of the access rights of the NFT Platform to the public key of the linked Wallet of the User, the User must cancel these access rights at his/her third-party wallet provider.

 

2.4 0xNXT is entitled to completely or partially dissolve the link of a User's Wallet to the NFT Platform and to block the relevant Wallet address and/or to suspend the provision of services in accordance with these Terms and Conditions for the benefit of the User of the relevant Wallet address, if facts suggest that a violation of these Terms and Conditions by the User has occurred or such blocking is required due to legal requirements.

 

2.5 The User is aware that the Wallet linked by him or her to the NFT Platform is provided to him or her by a third-party wallet provider. 0xNXT therefore does not assume any responsibility for the functionality or security of the Wallet, private cryptographic keys or NFTs.

 

2.6 The validity of all acts of use on the NFT Platform as well as all transfers of NFTs via the NFT Platform using a linked Wallet shall be independent of the person initiating the act. 

 

2.7 The User shall be solely responsible for ensuring that no unauthorized third parties use the NFT Platform using the Wallet linked by him or her to the NFT Platform and shall take appropriate measures to protect his/her Wallet and the access to the NFT Platform from access by third parties. 0xNXT is not responsible for the accessibility and usability of the Wallet by the User and is not able to restore NFTs if the User has lost access to his/her Wallet.

 

2.8 Furthermore, the User is obliged to refrain from all actions that could endanger the security and stability of the NFT Platform, in particular not to retrieve information or data without authorization, not to interfere with the software of the NFT Platform, not to penetrate data networks of 0xNXT or its subcontractors and not to transmit viruses, Trojans or other malware.

 

2.9 The User shall be responsible to 0xNXT to the same extent as for its own acts or omissions for all acts and omissions of third parties acting on its behalf as well as of third parties to whom the User enables the use of the NFT Platform. In particular, the User shall be fully responsible for ensuring that third parties to whom the User enables the use of the NFT Platform also fully comply with these Terms and Conditions.

 

2.10 The User acknowledges that 0xNXT, its subcontractors and licensors are fully entitled to all trademark and other identification rights, other intellectual property rights and copyrights to the NFT Platform as well as content and information provided by 0xNXT on the NFT Platform. The User warrants to comply with all applicable laws, including, without limitation, trademark, copyright and data protection laws, when using the NFT Platform and when using any other services provided to the User in this context.

 

§3
Provision of the NFT Platform by 0xNXT

3.1 0xNXT shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide access to the NFT Platform to the User with its then-current functionalities. 

 

3.2 0xNXT operates the NFT Platform as a standard service for a large number of Users and therefore makes it available to the User in its respective generally provided version. 

 

3.3 Unless expressly agreed otherwise or unless a different contractual classification is required by mandatory law, 0xNXT shall provide all its services to the User as services.

 

3.4 0xNXT may use its affiliates and any other subcontractors in the performance of its services under or in connection with these Terms and Conditions.

 

§ 4
Purchase of NFTs via the NFT Platform

4.1 During each Mint, the User can purchase a predefined number of NFTs on the NFT Platform on the basis of Purchase Agreements.

 

4.2 The price at which NFTs of a Mint can be purchased, decreases from a pre-defined starting price until all NFTs are sold out ("Clearance Price") if not a pre-defined final price ("End Price") is reached before. The time intervals until the next price reduction and the amount of the price reduction are linear and are displayed to the User within the respective Mint. 

 

4.3 The Clearance Price or End Price, respectively, displayed in ETH is inclusive of all applicable taxes, but exclusive of any displayed Gas Fees applicable to the transaction and to be paid by the User.

 

4.4 By pressing the "Buy now" button and selecting the desired number of NFTs, the User submits an offer to purchase one or more NFTs at the purchase price per NFT valid at the time of his/her offer at maximum (“Purchase Price”). For clarification: the Purchase Price may be slightly lower than the price displayed at the time the User submits the offer.

 

4.5 Per Wallet linked to the NFT Platform, a maximum of NFTs can be purchased. The specific limit for each Mint will be communicated by 0xNXT beforehand on the NFT Platform and communication channels and 0xNXT reserves the right to change the number of NFTs available per Wallet linked to the NFT Platform for future Mints. 

 

4.6 The User must subsequently confirm the Purchase Price including the applicable Gas Fees, which is to be paid by the User, to his/her third-party Wallet provider within an external pop-up window. The User is aware that he/she must pay the Gas Fees in addition to the applicable Purchase Price and that the amount of the Gas Fees to be paid by the User depends on various factors, such as the traffic on the Ethereum blockchain, and is therefore subject to fluctuations.

 

4.7 The User is aware and acknowledges that his/her offer relates to one or more NFTs from the respective Mint which are not specified at this point in time and that he/she cannot select a specific Artwork associated with an NFT in advance.

 

4.8 0xNXT will accept the User’s purchase offer subject to the condition that (i) the User holds a sufficient amount of ETH in his/her Wallet covering the Purchase Price including the accruing Gas Fees to be paid by the User and (ii) has accepted the Terms and Conditions. 

 

4.9 0xNXT will inform the User without undue delay via the NFT Platform whether the Purchase Agreement has been concluded. Following the successful conclusion of the Purchase Agreement, 0xNXT will perform the minting and transfer the NFT to the User's Wallet. The NFT is directly credited to the User's Wallet without being stored by 0xNXT on another crypto wallet beforehand.

 

4.10 Regardless of the Purchase Price, all buyers of an NFT Mint shall receive their NFTs at the same price. If and to the extent that the User has not concluded his/her purchase at the Clearance Price or End Price, respectively, 0xNXT offers to refund the User the difference to the Purchase Price paid by the User. In order to do so, the User shall request the refund by pressing “Claim Now” after the Mint is completed. The difference will be refunded to the User.

 

4.11 In the event that NFTs are still available after the Mint closes, the remaining NFTs may be purchased at the End Price without time limit.

 

§5
Donation of NFTs via the NFT Platform

5.1 Instead of purchasing NFTs, a User who has become a Mint Pass Owner in accordance with § 9 can also obtain NFTs on the NFT Platform by way of Donation Agreements in accordance with the following provisions of this § 5.

 

5.2 During each Mint, an overview of all Mint Passes owned by the Mint Pass Owner is displayed. By pressing the “Use Now” button associated with the respective Mint Pass, the Mint Pass Owner submits an offer to conclude a Donation Agreement.

 

5.3 The Mint Pass Owner subsequently shall confirm the applicable Gas Fees, which is to be paid by him/her, to his/her third-party Wallet provider within an external pop-up window. The Mint Pass Owner is aware that he/she shall pay the Gas Fees and that the amount of the Gas Fees depends on various factors, such as the traffic on the Ethereum blockchain, and is therefore subject to fluctuations.

 

5.4 The Mint Pass Owner is aware and acknowledges that his/her offer relates to one NFT from the respective Mint which is not specified at this point in time and that he/she cannot select a specific Artwork associated with an NFT in advance.

 

5.5 0xNXT will accept the Mint Pass Owner’s offer subject to the condition that the Mint Pass Owner (i) holds a sufficient amount of ETH in his/her Wallet to cover the accruing Gas Fees to be paid by the Mint Pass Owner and (ii) has accepted the Terms and Conditions.

 

5.6 0xNXT will inform the Mint Pass Owner without undue delay via the NFT Platform whether the Donation Agreement has been concluded by displaying a checkmark. Following the successful conclusion of the Donation Agreement, (i) the respective Mint Pass is removed from the Mint Pass Owner’s Wallet, is deemed devalued and no longer serves as documentation of the Mint Pass Owner’s eligibility to enter into a Donation Agreement and (ii) 0xNXT will perform the minting and transfer the relevant NFT to the Mint Pass Owner's Wallet. The NFT is directly credited to the Mint Pass Owner's Wallet without being stored by 0xNXT on another crypto wallet beforehand. Upon transfer of the NFT to the Mint Pass Owner's Wallet, the Donation Agreement shall be deemed fulfilled.

 

§6
Function and Value of NFTs

6.1 Each NFT is unique, irreplaceable, and inextricably linked to the particular Artwork that the NFT references in its metadata stored on the blockchain. 

 

6.2 The User acknowledges that the NFTs serve only as digital documentation of a limited ownership of rights with respect to the respective referenced Artwork and thus have only a digital documentation function. In particular, the NFTs do not represent a currency, any means of payment, claims, shares, rights of use or any other benefits in or towards 0xNXT its affiliates or any third party. The NFTs must not be used as a means of payment and/or settlement or for staking.

 

6.3 Furthermore, the User is aware that the Artworks linked to the NFTs do not become his/her property through the acquisition of NFTs, but remains fully with 0xNXT and its licensors. 

 

6.4 Nevertheless, 0xNXT grants the User, who has become NFT Owner by transferring the NFT to his/her Wallet in accordance with § 4.9, the rights set forth in § 7.1 to the Artwork referenced by the respective NFT.

 

§7
Rights and Restrictions of NFT Owners

7.1 To the extent and for as long as the User is NFT Owner and to the extent the User complies with these Terms and Conditions, 0xNXT grants the User the worldwide, non-exclusive, revocable, non-sublicensable and non-relicensable right to use the Artwork referenced by the NFT only for:

 

  • private, non-commercial purposes, such as for display on private end devices; and 
  • the purpose of promotion and sale on a Secondary Marketplace.

 

7.2 In particular, the User is prohibited, even beyond the duration of the license, to:

  • modify the NFTs or the linked Artworks in any way, including deleting, removing, or obscuring any commercial designations, copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights incorporated or affixed to the NFTs or the linked Artworks;
  • to reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise attempt to derive the structure of the NFTs or the linked Artworks; 
  • use the NFTs or the linked Artworks for commercial purposes, including advertising or promoting any product or service;
  • attempt to register the Artworks for the purchased or donated NFTs as trademarks or copyrights or otherwise acquiring additional intellectual property rights in the Artworks;
  • mint additional NFTs using/in connection with the Artworks;
  • use the Artworks in a manner that could damage the reputation of 0xNXT, its affiliates or licensors; and
  • use the NFTs or the Artworks in connection with any illegal activity, including but not limited to money laundering or fraud.

 

7.3 The license shall terminate and all the rights set forth in § 7.1 to the respective Artwork shall immediately revert to 0xNXT:

  • as soon as the User is no longer the NFT Owner, i.e. the NFT is no longer assigned to the User's Wallet by way of a corresponding entry on the Ethereum blockchain, in particular in the event of the sale of the NFT on a Secondary Marketplace in accordance with the provisions of § 8; and/or
  • as soon as the User violates these Terms and Conditions, in particular by exceeding the rights of use granted to him or her in respect of the Artworks or by violating the Restrictions pursuant to § 7.2.

 

§ 8
Resale of NFTs on Secondary Marketplaces

8.1 0xNXT is the issuer and primary seller of the NFTs and distributes them in its own name and for its own account. 0xNXT expressly does not engage in redemption, repurchase or secondary trading of the NFT on Secondary Marketplaces and does not facilitate any such activities.

 

8.2 Nevertheless, to the extent and for as long as the User is the NFT Owner and has the rights and obligations set forth in § 7.1 upon acquisition of the NFT, the User shall be entitled to resell the NFT on a Secondary Marketplace. The User acknowledges and agrees that he/she is solely responsible for any capital gains or income tax which may arise as a result of dealing with the NFT, in particular by reselling the NFT on a Secondary Marketplace.

 

8.3 The User acknowledges and agrees that if the NFTs are transferred on a Secondary Marketplace, a royalty will be deducted from the NFT selling price realized by the User ("NFT Resale Fee"). The NFT Resale Fee shall be 4.5% of the NFT selling price realized by the User. It is specified in the respective Smart Contract, so that upon any sale of the NFT on a Secondary Marketplace an automatic deduction of the NFT Resale Fee takes place also in case of any further subsequent sales of the NFT between other parties.

 

8.4 If the User resells an NFT via a Secondary Marketplace, the User shall:

  • comply with all laws and regulations in force at the time of the sale;
  • comply with the terms and conditions applicable on the respective Secondary Marketplace; and
  • make the purchaser aware of the "End User License" attached to these Terms and Conditions as Exhibit 1 and also available at https://nxt.mercedes-benz.com/terms-and-conditions, and to effectively incorporate it into the purchase agreement with the purchaser by linking or by other provision, to ensure that, in accordance with the End User License, the purchaser will:
    • become the new holder of a license to the Artwork referenced by the NFT;
    • agree to the deduction of the NFT Resale Fee upon a further resale of the NFT by the purchaser to a third party; and
    • be obliged to incorporate the End User License in his/her purchase agreement in case of a further resale of the NFT.

9.4 The total number of Mint Passes the User may obtain via a Mint Pass Agreement is equal to the number of Issued NFTs owned by him/her. 

 

9.5 The User is aware and acknowledges that for every Mint Pass Agreement and free transfer of a Mint Pass he/she needs to click “Claim Now” separately.

 

9.6 The User is aware and acknowledges that an offer to enter into a Mint Pass Agreement is only valid to the extent that the relevant Issued NFTs owned by him/her have not already been used by him/her or another User to enter into a Mint Pass Agreement.

 

9.7 The User must subsequently confirm the applicable Gas Fees, which is to be paid by him/her, to his/her third-party Wallet provider within an external pop-up window. The User is aware that he/she has to pay the Gas Fees and that the amount of the Gas Fees depends on various factors, such as the traffic on the Ethereum blockchain, and is therefore subject to fluctuations.

 

9.8 0xNXT will accept the User’s offer subject to the condition that (i) the User is at the time of his/her offer actually the owner of one or more Issued NFTs, (ii) the relevant Issued NFTs owned by him/her have not already been owned by him/her or another User at the time of a previous offer to enter into a Mint Pass Agreement, (iii) the User holds a sufficient amount of ETH in his/her Wallet to cover the accruing Gas Fees to be paid by the User and (iv) the User has accepted the Terms and Conditions.

In this case 0xNXT will perform the minting and transfer the Mint Pass or Mint Passes to the User’s Wallet and the Issued NFT used to enter into the Mint Pass Agreement cannot be used to enter into another Mint Pass Agreement in the future. Each Mint Pass is directly credited to the User’s Wallet without being stored by 0xNXT on another crypto wallet beforehand. Upon transfer of the Mint Pass or Mint Passes to the User’s Wallet, the Mint Pass Agreement shall be deemed fulfilled.

 

§10
Function and Value of Mint Passes

10.1 The User acknowledges that the Mint Passes serve only as digital documentation of his/her eligibility to enter into a Donation Agreement and thus have only a digital documentation function. In particular, Mint Passes do not represent a currency, any means of payment, claims, shares, rights of use or any other benefits in or towards 0xNXT its affiliates or any third party. The Mint Passes must not be used as a means of payment and/or settlement or for staking.

 

§11
Rights and Restrictions of Mint Pass Owners

11.1 For as long as the User is a Mint Pass Owner by transferring one or more Mint Passes to his/her Wallet in accordance with § 9.9, the Mint Pass serves as a mere documentation of his/her entitlement to enter into a Donation Agreement in accordance with § 5.

 

11.2 The Mint Pass Owner is prohibited to:

  • as soon as the User is no longer the Mint Pass Owner, i.e. the Mint Pass is no longer assigned to the User's Wallet by way of a corresponding entry on the Ethereum blockchain, in particular (i) in the event of the sale of the Mint Pass on a Secondary Marketplace in accordance with the provisions of § 12 or (ii) after successful conclusion of the respective Donation Agreement; and/or
  • as soon as the User violates these Terms and Conditions.

§12

12.2 Nevertheless, to the extent and for as long as the User is the Mint Pass Owner and has the rights and obligations set forth in § 11 upon obtaining of the Mint Pass, the User shall be entitled to resell the Mint Pass on a Secondary Marketplace. The User acknowledges and agrees that he/she is solely responsible for any capital gains or income tax which may arise as a result of dealing with the Mint Pass, in particular by reselling the Mint Pass on a Secondary Marketplace.

 

12.3 The User acknowledges and agrees that if the Mint Pass is transferred on a Secondary Marketplace, a royalty will be deducted from the Mint Pass selling price realized by the User ("Mint Pass Resale Fee").
