Terms of Service

Last revised on 2021 October 8.

The Gist

Patrn LLC (the "Company") operates the patrn.me service (the "Service"), which we hope you use. If you use it, please use it responsibly. If you don't, we'll have to terminate your account.

These Terms of Service (the "Terms") govern the use and access to the Patrn.me website and associated service. The Service allows two classes of users to participate in the creation and distribution of non-fungible token digital assets ("Crypto Assets"): users who post artwork ("Artists") and users who provide patronage to the Artists ("Patrons").

Artists may post their work with a target goal set for each individual artwork denominated in Ether ("ETH"), the native token of the Ethereum network. Patrons can send ETH to an address associated with each artwork ("Like" or "Liking" the artwork).

If the goal set by the Artist is reached within a predetermined time period, then the platform will mint the artwork as a Crypto Asset on the Ethereum blockchain and transmit a copy of the Crypto Asset to each Patron that Liked the artwork with more than a predetermined minimum threshold amount of ETH. The Artist will receive the ETH minus the fees associated with minting and transmitting the Crypto Assets, as well as a 5% fee that goes to the Company.

If the goal set by the Artist is not reached within the predetermined time period, then the artwork will not be minted. The Artist will receive any ETH that was used to Like their work, minus a 15% fee to the Company.

Transactions performed through the Service are done via third-party electronic wallet providers and extensions, and by using the Service you agree that you are bound by the terms of service and privacy policies applicable to those wallets or extensions, for instance Metamask (https://metamask.io/terms.html) AND (https://metamask.io/privacy.html).

The Terms of Service, patrn.me itself, and our fees can change at any time. We'll warn you 30 days in advance of any fee changes. We'll try to warn you about major changes to the Terms of Service or patrn.me, but we make no guarantees.

That's the basic idea, but You must read through the entire Terms of Service below and agree with all the details before You use any of our sites (whether or not you have created an account).

Patrn LLC gives You a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the software provided to You by Patrn LLC as part of the Service as provided to You by Patrn LLC. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling You to use and enjoy the benefit of the Service as provided by Patrn LLC, in the manner permitted by the Terms.

Open source software licenses for components of the Service released under an open source license constitute separate written agreements.

You expressly understand and agree that Patrn LLC, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and its licensors shall not be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, special consequential or exemplary damages which may be incurred by you, however caused and under any theory of liability. This shall include, but not be limited to, any loss of profit (whether incurred directly or indirectly), any loss of goodwill or business reputation, any loss of data suffered, cost of procurement of substitute goods or services, or other intangible loss (whether or not Patrn LLC has been advised of or should have been aware of the possibility of any such losses arising).

General Legal Terms

The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between You and Patrn LLC and govern Your use of the Service and completely replace any prior agreements between You and Patrn LLC in relation to the Service.

You agree that if Patrn LLC does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which Patrn LLC has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of Patrn LLC's rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to Patrn LLC.

Patrn LLC shall not be liable for failing or delaying performance of its obligations resulting from any condition beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to, governmental action, acts of terrorism, earthquake, fire, flood or other acts of God, labor conditions, power failures, and Internet disturbances.
