Welcome to Luxy (hereinafter also “Luxy”, “LUXY” or “we/us/our”). Luxy offers a software as a service solution, hereinafter referred to as the “Software” through our platform (“Platform”). The Software and Platform are hereinafter jointly be referred to as our “Services”.
1.1 User(s): individual person(s) (natural persons) or legal entity(ies) making use of the Services. Also referred to as “you”.
1.2 Software: the Software enables Users, including artists (“Artists”) and collectors (“Collectors”), to use the Platform to sell, purchase, create, list for auction, make offers on, and bid on (each a “Transaction”) NFT’s. The Software also includes a launchpad (“Launchpad”). The Launchpad enables Users to purchase upcoming, not yet launched, NFT’s.
1.3 Platform: a distributed application, functioning as a marketplace, that runs on a blockchain network, using specially-developed smart contracts that provide an immutable ledger of all transactions that occur on the Luxy marketplace (“Smart Contracts”). Using these Smart Contracts, users can create, buy, transfer and trade unique digital asset(s) as in the form of an NFT.
1.4 Account: the Account on the Platform created by User, which is limited for use by User only through the Login Credentials.
1.5 NFT(‘s): a non-fungible token or similar digital item implemented on a blockchain (such as the Polygon blockchain), which uses smart contracts to link to or otherwise be associated with certain content or data.
2.1 Users can browse the Platform without registering for an account. In order to participate on the Platform, you must connect your account to your digital wallet supported on MetaMask, WalletConnect or other wallet extensions or gateways as on the Platform.
3.1 If a User purchases, sells, trades or creates an NFT on the Software, or with or from other users via the Software any financial transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through a blockchain network (for example blockchain network Polygon) via MetaMask (or other Ethereum-compatible wallets and browsers). We have no insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any transactions. With that in mind, 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 via the Software, or using smart contracts, or any other transactions that you conduct via a blockchain network or MetaMask.
3.2 A blockchain network requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the blockchain network. The Gas Fee funds the network of computers that run the decentralized blockchain network. This means that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the Software.
3.3 In addition to the Gas Fee, each time you utilise a smart contract to conduct a purchase transaction with another user via the App, you authorise us to collect: a commission of 2% of the total value of that transaction (the “Fee”). You acknowledge and agree that the Fee will be transferred directly to us through the blockchain network as part of your payment.
