Terms and Conditions
TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE OF WEBSITE/SALE PLATFORM
These Terms and Conditions are issued by LTD INC Limited registered in England under no 13348392 having its registered office at 7 Bell Yard, London, England, WC2A 2JR (Us, Our, We, The Company, as the context requires).

1. WHAT IS A NON-FUNGIBLE TOKEN?
1.1 An NFT comprises two parts namely the cryptographic token (the Token) held by a user in a wallet approved in accordance with these terms and which represents a transaction record on a blockchain and enables the holder of the relevant private key to access display and exchange an original creative work (the Work) which is stored on a blockchain or other database. Collectively the Token and the Work are referred to as the/an NFT.
1.2 The Works associated with an NFT may be digital files such as photos, videos, or audio. Each digital file may be unique, one of a series or accessible by a limited number of token holders.
1.3 Ownership or control of the Token does not grant to the purchaser owner or person in possession any right title or interest in the copyright or other intellectual property rights in or relating to the associated Work nor does it provide any right title or interest or physical possession of any original work from which the Work is derived or created.
1.4 We will specify the smart contract address; the NFT Token ID; the blockchain on which the NFT is stored; the server or network on which the digital asset is stored; and the NFT metadata. You must review this information and conduct all due diligence and make such enquiries as you consider appropriate, we do not warrant the accuracy or completeness.
2. AUCTION SALES
2.1 These Conditions set out the terms on which we offer the NFT’s listed on this site.
2.2 By registering to bid and/or by bidding at auction you agree to these terms, so you should read them carefully before doing so.
2.3 We act as agent for the seller. This means that we are providing services to the seller to help them sell their NFT and that we are concluding the contract for the sale of the NFT on behalf of the seller.
2.4 As we act as agent, the contract of sale which is created is between you (the buyer) and the seller directly on the terms which you accept by use of this site and registering for any particular auction. We are not responsible for the creation functionality or value of any NFT which you purchase.
2.5 Purchasing an NFT at auction does not mean that you are buying the Work; (for example the digital artwork) associated with the NFT. Whilst each NFT is associated with a digital asset, (the Work) they are separate and distinct, and you should check before bidding on an NFT what rights (if any) you are granted in relation to the digital asset.
2.6 Estimates are based on the condition, rarity, quality and provenance of the NFT’s and on prices recently paid at auction for similar property.
2.7 Neither you, nor anyone else, may rely on any estimates as a prediction or guarantee of the actual selling price of a lot or its value for any other purpose. Estimates do not include the buyer’s premium or any applicable taxes.
2.8 We may, at our option, withdraw any lot at any time prior to or during the sale of the NFT. We have no liability to you for any decision to withdraw.
