Dragons ZIL is a distributed application that runs on the ZIlliqa blockchain. It uses custom developed ZIlliqa smart contracts (each, a "Smart Contract”) to enable users to battle, own, breed, sire, and buy digital and fictional dragons. These dragons can be seen and visualized on a website that the user can interact with (the "Site”). The Smart Contracts and the Site are collectively referred to in these Terms as the "Dragons ZIL Application”. Upon launch of the full game, the date of which is to be decided, of the Dragons ZIL Application, users will be able to view their dragons and use the Smart Contracts to buy eggs from the Dragons ZIL Application and/or buy, breed, and battle dragons with users on the Dragons ZIL Application.
I1. The Dragons ZIL
A. We utilize ZIlliqa Smart Contracts to have users interact with dragons in the Dragons ZIL Application. dragons will be available in the form of eggs on the launch of the Dragons ZIL Application egg presale. Eggs sold from the Dragons ZIL Application to users are sold on a dedicated egg sale page (the "Egg Sale Page”) and will increase in price with each egg sold from the Egg Sale Page. So each egg sold from the Egg Sale Page will be more expensive than the preceding egg sold from the Egg Sale Page. Eggs will eventually hatch digitally and turn into dragons.
B. Users will be able to interact with dragons on the Dragons ZIL Application in a variety of ways. These ways are still being developed and are yet to be fully decided upon. By buying eggs or dragons, you understand that you consent to the risk that you may not agree with the decisions made by the developers of the Dragons ZIL Application regarding its game mechanics, rules, sale of eggs, and anything else related to the Dragons ZIL Application.
2. The Dragons ZIL Application
A. Transactions that take place on the Dragons ZIL Application are confirmed and managed via the ZIlliqa blockchain. You understand that your ZIlliqa public address will be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction on the Dragons ZIL Application.
B. We neither own nor control Google Chrome, MetaMask, the ZIlliqa network, or any other third party site, product, or service that you might visit, access, or use for the purpose of enabling you to use the various features provided by the Dragons ZIL Application. We will not be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties, nor will we be liable for any damage that you may suffer as a result of interacting with any such third parties.
C. You must provide accurate and complete registration information when you create an account for the Dragons ZIL Application. You are responsible for the security of your MetaMask wallet (and other ZIlliqa wallets) and for any and all use of your account, whZILer you knew about the use or not. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your password or of your account, you agree to notify us immediately at [email protected]
D. It is possible for you to interact with the Dragons ZIL Application Smart Contracts via the ZIlliqa network, without using the Dragons ZIL Application as a portal. The process for doing this can be complex. If you do not know how to do this, we recommend using the Site.
3. Fees and Payment
A. If you elect to purchase eggs on the Egg Sale Page in the Dragons ZIL Application, any financial transactions that you engage in will be conducted through the ZIlliqa network. We will have no insight into or control over these transactions or payments, nor do we have the ability to reverse any transactions. Additionally, we will have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any transactions that you engage in through the Dragons ZIL Application, or independently using the Smart Contracts.
B. ZIlliqa requires the payment of a transaction fee for every transaction that occurs on the ZIlliqa network. This fee funds the network of computers that run the decentralized ZIlliqa network. Because of this, you will still need to pay this fee for each transaction that occurs via the ZIlliqa network- even if you interact directly with the ZIlliqa network without using the Dragons ZIL Application as a portal.
C. As between us, you will be solely responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added and other taxes, duties, and assessments (except taxes on our net income) now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority (collectively, "Taxes”) associated with your use of the Dragons ZIL Application (including, without limitation, any Taxes that may become payable as the result of your ownership, transfer, or breeding of any of your Dragons ZIL or eggs).
