Hi there! We hate long legal texts too, but as it is (still) necessary in today’s world, we need to write them. To make it easier to highlight what is the most important, here goes a summary. The mint fee is 1 SOL plus any transaction fees. We take a royalty fee of 5% on top of the transaction fees that marketplaces take on every secondary sale or transaction you do. NFT’s are risky, some of them are described below, so don’t forget to do your own research! You own the NFT and can do (almost) anything with the underlying art, only limited by what laws prohibit or what damages other people. We also can use the underlying art to make the Chiwawows brand as big as possible. We welcome you to the Chiwawows community, just don’t forget this is not an investment group. We don’t sell any kind of security or investment product; we’re selling access to the amazing world of the First Binacracy of Chiwawows.

Ownership and IP
When you purchase your Chiwawows NFT, You Own the NFT: the ownership is transferred to you on the Solana blockchain for that individual piece of Art combination of traits and number. Ownership of the NFT is ruled by the smart contract and the Solana Network terms. We, Chiwawows, have no ability to alter, freeze, seize or modify the ownership of any Chiwawows NFT.
Further, Chiwawows reserves the right to use ANY character for any purpose, commercial or not, including: print or digital advertising, or any purely creative media (including short film, anime, etc.)
Notwithstanding rights set out in these T&C, you cannot use the artwork in connection with images of hatred, violence or any other inappropriate behavior (such as behavior that is unlawful, defamatory, infringing, libelous, abusive, disparaging, pornographic, invasive of another's privacy, promotes illegal activities/conduct or violates applicable laws or regulations). The License granted in these T&C only applies to the extent that you continue to own the relevant NFT. If at any time you trade, donate, giveaway, transfer or otherwise dispose of your NFT for any reason, the license granted above will immediately expire, without notice, and you will have no further right in or to the artwork of this NFT.
Subject to your continued acceptance with these terms, Chiwawows allows you a worldwide, royalty-free license to use, copy and display the purchased Art, along with any derivative artwork or extensions that you could create or use, limited by the following purposes: (i) for your own personal, non-commercial use; (ii) as part of a marketplace that allows the purchase and sales of you Chiwawows / NFT, as long as the marketplace cryptographically verifies that you are the owner, to ensure that only the actual owner have the right to display the Art; or (iii) as part of a third party website or application that permits the inclusion, involvement or participation of your chiwawow NFTs, provided that the website or the application cryptographically verifies each Chiwawows owner’s right to display the Art for their Chiwawows, to ensure that only the actual owner can display the Art, and provided that the Art is no longer visible once the actual owner of the Chiwawows leave the website or application.
Subject to actual owner of Chiwawows NFTs continued compliance with these Terms, CHIWAWOWS grant you an unlimited, worldwide license to use, copy and display the purchased Art for the purpose of creating derivative works based upon the Art (« COMMERCIAL USAGE »). Examples of specified Commercial Use would be the use of the Art to produce and sell physical merchandise products (T-Shirt, Posters, etc.) displaying copies of the purchased Art. Please be aware that nothing in this section will be deemed to restrict you from (i) owning or operating a marketplace that permits the use and sale of Chiwawows generally, provided that the marketplace cryptographically verifies each Chiwawows owner’s right to display the Art of their Chiwawows to ensure that only the actual owner can display the Art; (ii) owning or operating a third party website or application that permits the inclusion, involvement, or participation of Chiwawows generally, provided that the third party website or application cryptographically verifies each Chiwawows owner’s rights to display the Art to ensure that only the actual owner can display the Art, and provided that the Art is no longer visible once the owner of the Purchased Chiwawows leaves the website/application; or (iii) earning revenue from any of the foregoing.
You also acknowledge and agree that:
The prices of blockchain assets are extremely volatile, subjective and have noninherent or intrinsic value. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the NFTs, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. In addition, a lack of use or public interest in NFTs could negatively impact the potential utility or value of NFTs. Each NFT has no inherent or intrinsic value. There is no guarantee that any purchases of NFTs will retain their original value, as their value is inherently subjective and factors occurring outside of the platform(s) related to the NFTs may materially impact the value and desirability of any particular NFT.
Chiwawows NFTs are not intended to be considered an investment. You assume all risks in that connection.
No information on this Website (or any other documents mentioned therein) is or may be considered to be advice or an invitation to enter into an agreement for any investment purpose. Further, nothing on this Website qualifies or is intended to be an offering of securities in any jurisdiction nor does it constitute an offer or an invitation to purchase shares, securities or other financial products. Due to the artistic nature of the project, there have not been specific registrations with or approvals by any regulator in any jurisdiction.
A royalty or secondary sale fee can be applied when You sell NFTs on the secondary markets for NFTs. To the extent possible, We apply a royalty of 5% on each re-sell. Don’t forget that marketplaces also take a fee.
We do not store, send, or receive NFTs. NFTs related to us exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the Ethereum blockchain. Any transfer of NFTs related to us occurs within the Solana blockchain.
There are risks associated with using an Internet-based currency, including, but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within Your digital wallet.
The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the related platforms or services, and therefore the potential utility or value of your NFTs.
Upgrades to the Solana blockchain, a hard fork in the Solana blockchain, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the Solana blockchain may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using the Solana blockchain’s NFT standard.
All purchases of NFTs, as well as associated charges, are non-refundable. This no-refund policy shall apply at all times regardless of your decision to terminate usage of the NFT, any disruption to the operations of any components of the NFT, or any other reason whatsoever.
