Accordingly, any persons who access the Site and/or the Games while breaking their local laws are doing it on their own initiative and will have to deal with the consequences when applicable.

(a) ICE Poker is a remastered peer-to-peer free-to-play poker simulation game incorporating a variety of skill-based and creative challenges. It allows players to earn "ICE" utility token ("$ICE") rewards for playing and winning at Games, thereby incentivising and encouraging daily gameplay and competition amongst players.
(b) Games are free-to-play, so players do not need to spend any money to participate. Instead, players which hold ICE NFT will get a daily balance of "chips" to spend on Games and compete with other players. Chips are non-transferable tokens that hold no value or functionality other than to keep score when players play Games. Chips balances are reset daily at midnight UTC, and each day, all active players will receive certain $ICE token rewards, with top performers receiving greater levels of rewards.
(c) ICE NFTs are special digital collectibles which enable players to earn $ICE by completing daily challenges playing poker with chips. Players may view, buy, and delegate their ICE NFT wearables on the Account page.
(d) SNG NFTs are special digital collectibles which enable players to compete in special "sit-and-go" events ("SNG") available within the Arcade Games ecosystem from time to time. In order to participate in SNG, players would need to have the prescribed number of "Shine" ("Shine") held with the SNG NFT. SNG NFT, when initially purchased from the issuer, will be charged with Shine which may be spent within the Arcade Games ecosystem as described herein. Players who Own ICE NFTs as well as SNG NFTs at the same time have the option to spend $ICE to re-charge Shine for their SNG NFT. Shine are not transferrable outside of the Arcade Games ecosystem and only have the limited functions as prescribed within.[CG1]
(e) The prescribed number of Shine required to participate in the SNG, maximum number of players competing per SNG (currently planned to be 6), rewards for top performing players (currently planned for 2nd placed players to get their spent Shine back, while 1st placed players to get a "Badge") may be varied from time to time depending on the type of SNG.
(f) "Badges" reward top performers in SNGs. Players who have accumulated a prescribed number of Badges by participating in SNG and/or various events within the Arcade Games ecosystem may spend these on spent on certain pre-determined non-fungible token prizes (which list may be updated from time to time). Badges are not transferrable outside of the Arcade Games ecosystem and only have the limited functions as prescribed within[CG2] .
(g) Players do not transact with or make transaction requests with us, but all transactions will be carried out directly between players, peer to peer, via the Smart Contracts deployed on the Ethereum/Polygon networks, in a non-custodial manner.
(h) We do not collect or retains any information on players of Games – in particular we do not collect any private keys of players and hence do not have control over any player's digital assets.
(i) Given that Games are free-to-play, we shall not be deemed to be providing any regulated services within the scope of any gaming/gambling or similar laws. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, you shall not be allowed to participate in Games in the event that your participation in Games is deemed to be covered by any applicable gaming/gambling laws.

- 3.YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE HAVE MADE THE SITE, THE GAMES AND THE SMART CONTRACTS AVAILABLE TO YOU AND ENTERED INTO THESE TERMS IN RELIANCE UPON THE WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN, WHICH REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN US. WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SITE, THE GAMES AND THE SMART CONTRACTS TO YOU WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.

You accept and acknowledge each of the following:
(a) The prices of blockchain assets are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your DG NFT, Shine or Badges, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot guarantee that any purchasers of DG NFT or Shine will not lose money.
(b) You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your transactions relating to DG NFT, Shine or Badges. We are not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions on the Games, the Site, or the Smart Contracts.
(c) The Games do not store, send, or receive DG NFTs. This is because DG NFTs exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the Games' supporting blockchain on the Ethereum/Polygon Network. Any transfer of DG NFTs occurs only on the relevant blockchain network.
(d) The Smart Contracts you interact with may contain security vulnerabilities, errors, failures, bugs or economic loopholes which may be exploited by third parties. Interaction with these Smart Contracts is entirely your own responsibility and liability, and we are not a party to the Smart Contracts.
(e) At any time, your access to DG NFT, Shine or Badges or your cryptocurrency assets may be suspended or terminated or there may be a delay in your access or use of your cryptocurrency assets, which may result in the cryptocurrency assets diminishing in value or you being unable to interact with a Smart Contract, the Games or the Site. The Games or the Site may be suspended or terminated for any or no reason, which may limit your access to your cryptocurrency assets.
(f) 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 we will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Ethereum/Polygon network, however caused.
(g) Because DG NFT is based on blockchain technology, any malfunction, breakdown or abandonment of the relevant blockchain network may have a material adverse effect on the DG NFT you own. Moreover, advances in cryptography, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computing, could present risks to DG NFT, the underlying digital assets, or the relevant blockchain network by rendering ineffective the cryptographic consensus mechanism that underpins the relevant blockchain network. The future of cryptography and security innovations are highly unpredictable.
(h) A private key, or a combination of private keys, is necessary to control and dispose of DG NFT stored in your digital wallet, vault or other storage mechanism. Accordingly, loss of requisite private key(s) associated with such digital wallet, vault or other storage mechanism storing DG NFT may result in loss of such DG NFT. Moreover, any third party that gains access to such private key(s), including by gaining access to login credentials of a hosted wallet service which you use, may be able to misappropriate any DG NFT held by you. We cannot be responsible for any such losses.
(i) Hackers or other malicious groups or organisations may attempt to interfere with DG NFT, the Smart Contracts, the Games or the Site in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, malware attacks, denial of service attacks, consensus-based attacks, Sybil attacks, smurfing and spoofing, which may result in losses incurred by you.
(j) A lack of use or public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems could negatively impact the development of the Decentral Arcade Games ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of DG NFTs.
(k) The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Decentral Arcade Games ecosystem, and therefore the potential utility or value of DG NFT, Shine or Badges.
(l) An upgrade, hard fork, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the relevant blockchain network may have unintended, adverse effects on all blockchains using the ERC-20, ERC-721, or ERC-1155 standard, including the Arcade Games ecosystem.
(m) Cryptographic tokens such as DG NFT are a new and untested technology. In addition to the aforementioned risks, there may be other risks associated with your creation, holding and use of DG NFT, including those that we cannot anticipate. Such risks may further materialise as unanticipated variations or combinations of the risks discussed herein.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless, including our subsidiaries, affiliates, and all of our respective officers, agents, partners, and employees, from and against any loss, damage, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, made by third party due to or arising out of:
