Every Smurf is or may be part of a collection of designs with various degrees of rarity, as determined at our sole discretion and presented on our Website.
Our NFTs are based on the 721a-ERC protocol and are “non-fungible” tokens identified by a unique ID (a “NFT”) thus allowing the representation of ownership and authenticity over the NFT and associated Smurfs.
Each NFT may contain certain properties, including the name and description of the NFT, a link to the associated digital illustration (Smurf) and potentially other metadata associated with the NFT (collectively, the “NFT ID”). Each NFT may also include certain terms pertaining to its price when so traded, bought, sold, transferred, offered or received, transaction history, its license governing the use of the associated digital illustration (Smurf), terms and conditions and content visible only upon the occurrence of the NFT’s purchase and/or transfer (the “NFT Characteristics”).
We shall retain all intellectual property rights in the Smurfs, as provided at article 5 below.

We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of our Services is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to or usage of some parts of the Services, or the entire Services, to users, including registered users.
We may from time to time remove certain Smurfs that are for sale from the Website, or restrict the creation of new NFTs associated to Smurfs in our sole and absolute discretion. We do not commit and shall not be liable for any failure to support, display or offer or continue to support, display or offer any Smurfs through our Website and Services.
Studio Peyo S.A and its exclusive agent, IMPS, a.k.a. International Merchandising, Promotion and Services S.A., companies governed under Belgian law, are the owners of all the intellectual property rights on the Smurfs. The Smurfs Society operate the Service in accordance with IMPS.
We (on our behalf and, if applicable, on behalf of our licensors) reserve all rights in and to the Smurfs, including all copyrights in and to it, like the right to reproduce and make copies of it, to represent it, to prepare derivate works, to distribute, sell, or transfer, to display, to perform, and to publicly display and publicly perform.
The buyer of an NFT shall be the sole and exclusive holder of the NFT and digital file designated by this NFT.
Subject to the provisions herein, it is understood that you, as the holder of an NFT (i) shall not be the owner, assignee or licensee of any intellectual property right on the digital illustration of the NFT and in particular on the names, texts, trademarks, artwork and designs describing, designating, reproducing or representing the Smurfs ; (ii) shall solely be the owner of the digital file designated by the NFT; (iii) as the owner of the digital file designated by the NFT, shall be free to assign the ownership of the NFT and the digital file designated by the latter, gratuitously or in return for remuneration, by any means, to any third party at its discretion.
Upon purchase of an NFT, you will not be receiving any intellectual property right with respect of the Smurfs, but rather a limited worldwide, exclusive (but without derogating from our rights hereunder), personal right (the “Limited Right”) to display the Smurf underlying the NFT you have purchased, privately or publicly, solely for personal, non-commercial purposes, including on social media platforms, digital galleries, or otherwise on the Internet or in association with your offer to sell or trade the Smurf in a marketplace as set forth herein. This right does not grant you any rights in or to the artwork underlying the Smurfs separate from the associated NFT. Said right will only apply as long as you continue to hold the NFT. If at any time you will sell, trade, donate, give away, or transfer your NFT to a new owner through a marketplace or by any other mean, the right shall be transferred to that new owner, and you will have no further rights in or to the NFT and the Smurf associated with it.
Any use beyond this Limited Right will constitute an infringement of the Smurfs Society, Studio Peyo and IMPS rights.
There is no guarantee or assurance of the uniqueness, originality or quality of any Smurfs and/or NFT Characteristics. In the absence of an express legal agreement, there cannot be any guarantee or assurance that the purchase or possession of a NFT confers any license to or ownership of the NFT ID or other intellectual property associated with the NFT or any other right or entitlement, notwithstanding that you may rightfully own or possess the NFT.

We make no warranties or representations about the accuracy or completeness of the content of the Website and Services, including without derogating, the NFTs, NFT Characteristics, the Smurfs and/or user content. The NFTs and Smurfs are provided on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis. You acknowledge and agree that use of the Services and NFTs are at your own risk.
You confirm having read and understood the risks mentioned at Appendix A, which represent a non-exhaustive list.
Certain Risks Relating to the Use of the Website and NFTs
By using the Website and Services, you expressly acknowledge, understand and assume the following risks as well as all other risks associated with the Services (including those not included below):
Risks Associated with the blockchain protocol
Because the Services are based on a blockchain protocol, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the blockchain protocol may have a material adverse effect on the Services. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to the Services by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the blockchain protocol. Upgrades to the blockchain Website, a hard fork in the blockchain Website or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the blockchain Website may have unintended adverse effects.
Risk of Mining Attacks
As with other decentralized cryptographic tokens based on a blockchain protocol, the services are susceptible to attacks by miners in the course of validating the Services transactions on the blockchain, including, but not limited, to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, and selfish-mining attacks. Any successful attacks present a risk to the Services, including, but not limited to, accurate execution and recording of transactions or divulgation of documents.
On the blockchain, timing of block production is determined by consensus mechanisms and protocols so block production can occur at random times. For example, ETH that is contributed to the Services smart contract in the final seconds of a distribution period may not get included for that period. You acknowledge and understand that the blockchain may not include your transaction at the time you expect, and that transactions may be delayed. The blockchain is prone to periodic congestion during which transactions can be delayed or lost. You acknowledge and understand that blockchain block producers may not include your transaction when you want or your transaction may not be included at all. The use of Blockchain technology may utilize experimental cryptographic technologies and blockchain technologies, including tokens, cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, “smart contracts,” consensus algorithms, voting systems and distributed, decentralized or peer-to-peer networks or systems in performing the Services. You acknowledge and agree that such technologies are novel, experimental, and speculative, and that therefore there is significant uncertainty regarding the operation and effects and risks thereof and the application of existing law thereto.
The fiat-denominated prices and value in public markets of assets such as NFTs have been historically subject to dramatic fluctuations and are highly volatile. As relatively new products and technologies, blockchain-based assets are not widely accepted as a means of payment for goods and services. A significant portion of demand for these assets is generated by speculators and investors seeking to profit from the short or long term holding of blockchain assets. The market value of any NFT may decline below the price for which you acquired such asset on our Website or with any third-party. You acknowledge and agree that the costs and speeds of transacting with cryptographic and blockchain-based systems are variable and may increase or decrease dramatically at any time, resulting in prolonged inability to access or use any NFTs or other digital assets associated with the services.
Source Code Risks
The source code underpinning the Services and the services smart contracts may contain flaws, bugs, defects or inconsistencies that could compromise the predictability, usability, functionality, stability and security of the Services. We will attempt to perform quality assurance and audit procedures to ensure the source code accurately reflects the Services intended operation, though there can be no guarantee that any errors are identified or the source code will be error-free. In addition, source code modifications or updates may lead to unexpected or unintended outcomes that may adversely affect the utility or functionality of the Services or any associated Services. Source code modifications that constitute upgrades may be required in connection with the development of the Services or associated services, and your failure to participate in any such upgrades may result in the loss of some or all Services.
Risk of Hacking and Security Weakness
The Services may be subject to expropriation and or/theft. Hackers or other malicious groups or organizations may attempt to interfere with the services’ smart contract, or the Services in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of Service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing. Furthermore, because the blockchain Website rests on open source software and the Services are based on open source software, there is the risk that smart contracts may contain intentional or unintentional bugs or weaknesses which may negatively affect the Services or result in the loss of Services, transactions or documents, the loss of your ability to access or control the Services. In the event of such a software bug or weakness, there may be no remedy and holders of the Services are not guaranteed any remedy, refund or compensation.
Risk of Losing Access to the Services Due to Loss of Private Key(s)
Access to the services requires a private key, or a combination of private keys, for access. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with your digital wallet will result in loss of access to the Services and all documents and transactions related to the Services. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a hosted wallet service you use, may be able to misuse the Services. We are not responsible for any such losses.
Risk of Reliance on Third Parties
We anticipate relying, in whole or partly, on third parties to adopt and implement our services and to continue to develop, supply, and otherwise support the Website. We may be unable to retain third parties with the requisite expertise, and those it does retain may not adequately perform their obligations towards us.
Federal, state and even international laws, regulations and/or rules applicable to technology industries, including but not limited to those regarding the blockchain technology may impact or constrain the design, implementation and operation of the Services.
Blockchain technology is a new and untested technology. In addition to the risks included in this Exhibit A, there are other risks associated with your use of the Services, including those that we cannot anticipate. Such risks may further materialize as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed in this Exhibit A.
