- General Waiver; Assumption of Risk
AlmaMeta does not give investment advice, endorsement, analysis, or recommendations with respect to any securities and is not a registered broker-dealer, funding portal or investment advisor. Any securities referenced here are being offered by, and all information included on this Website related to such securities is the responsibility of, the applicable issuer of such securities. The intermediary (if any) facilitating the offering will be identified in an issuer's offering documentation. Any historical returns, expected returns, or probability projections may not reflect actual future performance. All securities involve risk and may result in partial or total loss. AlmaMeta is not being compensated for hosting this Website. No offers are being made to any person in any jurisdiction where the provision or use thereof would be contrary to applicable laws, rules or regulations of any governmental authority or where AlmaMeta is not authorized to provide such information or services. All users – persons or entities – accessing the Services do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws and regulations. Nothing contained in the Services constitutes investment, financial, accounting, tax or legal advice; nor should be considered an offer, solicitation of an offer or advice to buy or sell securities.
AlmaMeta does not give any advice or recommendation regarding NFTs, including, but not limited to, the suitability and/or appropriateness of, and investment strategies for, the purchase of the NFTs for financial investment purposes. You are solely responsible for determining the nature, potential value, suitability, and appropriateness of your purchase of the NFTs for yourself for any purpose. The NFTs are not designed for investment purposes and AlmaMeta does not give any advice or recommendation that the NFTs are to be considered a type of financial investment by any law, rule, or regulation. With respect to your purchase of the NFTs, you acknowledge and agree that you are not expecting to profit from the NFTs based on any efforts by AlmaMeta or its affiliates. The purchase of a NFT is a non-reversible and non-refundable event. AlmaMeta shall have no obligation or liability for the secure custody or use of the NFT and any losses arising from such custody or use or solely the purchasers.
Please note the following risks in accessing or using AlmaMeta: The price and liquidity of blockchain assets, including NFTs, are extremely volatile and may be subject to large fluctuations; fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect NFTs, which may also be subject to significant price volatility; legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of NFTs; NFTs are not legal tender and are not backed by the government; transactions in NFTs may be irreversible, and, accordingly, losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable; some transactions in NFTs shall be deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which is not necessarily the date or time that you initiated the transaction; the value of NFTs may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange fiat currency or digital assets for NFTs, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular NFT should the market for that NFT disappear; the nature of NFTs may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber-attack, and may mean that technological difficulties experienced by AlmaMeta may prevent the access to or use of your digital assets and/ or personal information; and changes to any third party sites may create a risk that your access to and use of AlmaMeta will suffer.
You are solely responsible for determining the nature, potential value, suitability, and appropriateness of these risks for yourself. You access and use AlmaMeta at your own risk; however, you also acknowledge that this brief statement does not disclose all of the risks associated with NFTs and other digital assets. You agree and understand that AlmaMeta will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays it may experience when using, selling or promoting NFTs, however caused.
You hereby expressly waive and release any and all claims, now known or hereafter known, against AlmaMeta, its affiliates and their officers, directors, manager(s), employees, agents, shareholders/members (collectively, “Releasees“), related to the NFTs, whether arising out of the ordinary negligence of AlmaMeta or any Releasees or otherwise. You covenant not to make or bring any such claim against AlmaMeta or any other Releasee, and forever release and discharge AlmaMeta and all other Releasees from liability under such claims.

12. Limitation of Liability
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES AND ANY RELIANCE UPON EITHER IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL AlmaMeta BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES, WHETHER OR NOT AlmaMeta HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY (INCLUDING CONTRACT, TORT INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, OR HOWSOEVER OTHERWISE) ARISING OUT OF, IN CONNECTION WITH, OR RESULTING FROM THE SERVICES. YOU SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT DOWN-TIME AND COMPUTER VIRUSES ARE RISKS INHERENT IN THE USE OF THE INTERNET AND SOFTWARE PRODUCTS, AND YOU AGREE TO ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY HARM OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND OR CHARACTER WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM THESE POSSIBLE HARMS. YOU ALSO SPECIFICALLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU MAY BE DISCLOSING SENSITIVE, PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF IN YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AND YOU AGREE TO ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY HARM OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND OR CHARACTER WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM YOUR RELEASE OF SUCH CONTENT. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SERVICES OR WITH ANY OF THESE TERMS, OR FEEL WE HAVE BREACHED THESE TERMS, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING THE SERVICES. OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CLAIM ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR USE OF THE SERVICES SHALL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF (i) THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE SERVICES IN THE SIX (6) MONTHS PRECEDING THE APPLICABLE CLAIM, IF ANY OR (ii) $100. IT IS THE INTENTION OF YOU AND US THAT THIS PROVISION BE CONSTRUED BY A COURT AS BEING THE BROADEST LIMITATION OF LIABILITY CONSISTENT WITH APPLICABLE LAW. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER TYPES OF DAMAGES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You shall indemnify and hold harmless AlmaMeta, its affiliates and licensors and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors and suppliers from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses or fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees) resulting from (i) your violation of these Terms, (ii) your use or access of the Services, (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation, any intellectual property right or right of publicity, (iv) any claim that your use of the Services caused damage to a third party or (v) from any decisions or investments that you make based on the Services or through any other investment vehicle referenced via the Services.
14. Governing Law
15. Arbitration and Class Action Waiver.
- A. Arbitration. READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM AlmaMeta. For any dispute with AlmaMeta, you agree to first contact us at [email protected] and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that AlmaMeta has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after 60 days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to this Agreement, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in New York County, New York, unless you and AlmaMeta agree otherwise. If you are using the Services for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS 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 Services for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorneys' 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. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing AlmaMeta 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.
B. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE SERVICES 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 AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND AlmaMeta ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND.
16. General Terms.
These Terms constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and AlmaMeta with respect to the Services and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to the Services. No waiver of these Terms by AlmaMeta shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition, and any failure of AlmaMeta to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be modified to reflect the parties' intention or eliminated to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect. The Terms, and any rights or obligations hereunder, are not assignable, transferable, or sublicensable by you except with AlmaMeta's prior written consent, but may be assigned or transferred by us without restriction. Any attempted assignment by you shall violate these Terms and be void. The section titles in the Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
