To the fullest extent permitted by law, you agree that in no event will NextName or its affiliates be liable to you or any third party for any lost profit or any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages arising from these terms or the services, products or third-party sites and products, or for any damages related to loss of revenue, loss of profits, loss of business or anticipated savings, loss of use, loss of goodwill, loss of data, and whether caused by strict liability or tort (including negligence), breach of contract, or otherwise, even if foreseeable and even if NextName has been advised of the possibility of such damages; or for any other claim, demand, or damages whatsoever resulting from or arising out of or in connection with these terms of the delivery, use, or performance of the service.

X. ASSUMPTION OF RISK
You accept and acknowledge: The prices of blockchain assets (such as and Digital Collectibles) are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the Digital Collectibles, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot guarantee that any purchasers of Digital Collectibles will not lose money. You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your Digital Collectibles transactions. NextName is not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to Digital Collectible Transaction or any Digital Collectible transaction. Our Service does not store, send, or receive Digital Collectibles. This is because Digital Collectibles exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on its supporting blockchain. Any transfer of Digital Collectibles occurs within the supporting blockchain and not on this Service. There are risks associated with using an Internet based currency, including but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your wallet. You accept and acknowledge that NextName will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Digital Collectibles, however caused. A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of those ecosystems and related applications and could therefore also negatively impact the potential utility or value of Digital Collectibles. The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Transaction and/or Service and the utility of Digital Collectibles. The Service will rely on third-party platforms such as the Flow Network and Stripe to perform the Transactions and associated payments for Digital Collectibles. If we are unable to maintain a good relationship with such platform providers; if the terms and conditions or pricing of such platform providers change; if we violate or cannot comply with the terms and conditions of such platforms; or if any of such platforms loses market share or falls out of favor or is unavailable for a prolonged period of time, access to and use of the Service will suffer. There are risks associated with purchasing user generated content, including but not limited to, the risk of purchasing counterfeit assets, mislabeled assets, assets that are vulnerable to metadata decay, assets on smart contracts with bugs, and assets that may become untransferable. NextName reserves the right to hide collections, contracts, and assets affected by any of these issues or by other issues. Assets you purchase may become inaccessible on NextName. Under no circumstances shall the inability to view your assets on NextName serve as grounds for a claim against NextName.
XI. MODIFICATIONS TO THE SERVICE
We reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify, suspend or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services (or any features or parts thereof) or suspend or discontinue the Digital Collectible or the Transaction at any time and without liability, therefore.
XII. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
This Arbitration Agreement applies to and governs any dispute, controversy, or claim between you and NextName that arises out of or relates to, directly or indirectly: (a) the Agreement, including the formation, existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, validity, or enforceability thereof; (b) access to or use of the Site, Services and Content including receipt of any advertising or marketing communications; (c) any transactions through, by, or using the Site or Services; or (d) any other aspect of your relationship or transactions with NextName, directly or indirectly, as a consumer (“Dispute Claim” or collectively, “Dispute Claims”). The Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all Dispute Claims that arose or were asserted before or after your agreement to the Agreement. You can reject and opt-out of this Arbitration Agreement if within 30 days of accepting the Agreement by emailing NextName at legal@NextName.com with your first and last name and stating your intent to opt-out of the Arbitration Agreement. Note that opting out of this Arbitration Agreement does not affect any other part of the Agreement, including the provisions regarding controlling law or in which courts any disputes must be brought. For any Dispute Claim, you agree to first contact us at legal@NextName.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that NextName has not been able to resolve a Dispute Claim after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any Dispute Claim exclusively through binding arbitration by AAA before a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”), under the Expedited Procedures then in effect for AAA (the “Rules”), except as provided herein. In the event of any conflict between the Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this Arbitration Agreement shall control. AAA may be contacted at www.adr.org, where the Rules are also available. The arbitration will be in Delaware, unless you and NextName agree otherwise. If you are using the Site for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Site for non-commercial purposes: (i) AAA may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from AAA; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and NextName agree that the Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The Arbitrator shall also be responsible for determining all threshold arbitrability issues, including issues relating to whether the Agreement, any provision of the Agreement, is unconscionable or illusory and any defense to arbitration, including waiver, delay, laches, unconscionability, or estoppel. Nothing in this Section 12 shall be deemed as: preventing NextName from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights; or preventing you from asserting claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances on only an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. If this Arbitration Agreement is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall be severed. Severance of the void, unenforceable, or unlawful provision, in whole or in part, shall have no impact on the remaining provisions of the Arbitration Agreement, which shall remain in force, or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to the Arbitration Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver is found to be void, unenforceable, or unlawful, in whole or in part, because it would prevent you from seeking public injunctive relief, then any dispute regarding the entitlement to such relief (and only that relief) must be severed from arbitration and may be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction. All other claims for relief subject to arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement shall be arbitrated under its terms, and the parties agree that litigation of any dispute regarding the entitlement to public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SITE FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AND NEXTNAME AGREE THAT THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY TO AN INDIVIDUAL CLAIMANT AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED MAY NOT AFFECT OTHER NEXTNAME USERS. YOU AND NEXTNAME FURTHER AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THE AGREEMENT, YOU AND NEXTNAME ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO BRING, JOIN, OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER.
