Terms of Service

Last Updated Date: January 29, 2023
Regulations for the Sale and Trade of NFT Tokens of Digitized Artworks on the Uni.decentral-art Platform
  • The Uni.decentral-art platform based in Dublin organizes the sale of NFT tokens representing virtual and real artworks, and other collectible objects. The sale is conducted in accordance with the terms specified in this regulation.
  • Before minting NFT tokens and trading tokens, each user is obliged to familiarize themselves with the content of the regulations.
  • The Uni.decentral-art platform acts as a tool based on blockchain technology, and the portal itself is a place where transactions can be made between entities, artists, traders, and speculators.
  • The items for sale are artworks in the form of NFT tokens, which have been transferred for sale by their authors or later buyers. The authors assure that the objects are their property or that they have the right to dispose of them, and that the objects are not subject to any legal or tax proceedings, have not been seized or pledged, and are not subject to claims from third parties.
  • The sale takes place in a peer-to-peer online system on the Ethereum and Polygon networks in real time, and transactions can be tracked on the uni.decentral-art.com portal and on the blockchain on etherscan.io and polygonscan.com. The seller decides on the amount of the bid, resolves any disputes or puts the object up for resale. The platform will make every effort to execute the order, but is not responsible for non-execution of the sale and purchase order, unless the failure to execute the order is solely the responsibility of the platform.
  • Blockchain is a decentralized ledger that ensures the compliance of transactions of the offered objects with Point 5 of the regulations regarding guarantees of compliance of the offered objects with the description on the listing. The uni.decentral-art platform uses blockchain technology which allows for this compliance to be ensured through the use of smart contract algorithms and the decentral-art system's database. This means that the process is automated and does not require the direct involvement of employees or individuals working with the portal. This means that blockchain guarantees that the objects offered for sale are in compliance with the description on the list and there is no possibility of fraud on the part of the seller.
  • The portal reserves the right to block or withdraw the Object from sale on the portal without giving a reason and without incurring any responsibility, but it will not be able to remove it from the blockchain network.
  • The seller is responsible for the condition of the items they offer for sale and they should present them in the best possible condition when describing them. The portal will not consider complaints regarding the quality of the items, as it is the responsibility of the seller to ensure that the item is in good condition
  • The price is always confirmed with a signature on the blockchain network, which means that the sale-purchase agreement is irreversible, the transaction cannot be undone. Any changes to the price can only be made by changing the agreement with the consent of both parties, but it will not change the transaction itself.
  • If the item for sale is a digitized true image painted on canvas and not just a digital graphic, the seller is obligated to send the image to the buyer's address within 14 days from the completion of the transaction. The seller should obtain the shipping data from the buyer through the built-in user authentication communicator used for logging in to the platform. Keep in mind that only the wallet address is the only immutable element that constitutes user authorization. If the seller does not fulfill this obligation, a penalty fee may be incurred, which is 100 times the amount of the sale and will be transferred to the buyer.
  • The ownership and possession rights of the purchased object will be transferred to the buyer after the transaction is signed on the blockchain using a MetaMask wallet or other.
  • The right of ownership to the purchased object and the right to receive it passes to the buyer after signing the transaction in the blockchain network using MetaMask wallet or other. From the transaction amount, the smart contract automatically deducts a 5% commission from the transaction amount from the seller. This commission applies both in the primary market and in the secondary market of sales.
  • The NFT tokens are created on the Ethereum blockchain ERC721 network and recorded in the blockchain contract with the address 0x6509Cd7432EFcBD0eb128418Bd476951A684DBFe.
  • The buying and selling transactions of objects are conducted using the ART token on the Ethereum ERC20 network, which is recorded in the blockchain contract with the address 0x570936840fA942C96ca4C57A170dDa494DD9B9C6. This means that transactions on the platform are conducted using these specific tokens.
  • The referral system for artworks involves sharing artworks on various social platforms. The person who shares the artwork will be able to earn 2% of each transaction made through the link that is assigned to the wallet from which it was generated. This means that the person will be able to earn money not only from the initial transaction, but also from every subsequent transaction made by those who used the link.
  • The platform is not responsible for any hidden problems such as physical or legal defects that may occur in purchased objects. This means that the buyer should thoroughly familiarize themselves with the description and condition of the object before purchasing and reach out to the seller in case of any doubts. The platform will not consider complaints regarding hidden defects of objects.
  • DecentralArt does not collect personal data, and user metadata will be processed to enable the execution of agreements between users. Data processing is necessary to perform actions during the formation or execution of agreements. Data processing is carried out in accordance with the personal data protection act.
  • The user has the right to access their personal data and the right to correct them. They can also contact the company and request for them to stop processing their personal data. In order to access their data, the client can contact the company by providing their email address at [email protected].
  • The portal does not offer shipping services for any items purchased on the platform because it does not store them and transactions made on the platform are done peer to peer. This means that the seller is responsible for independently arranging the transport of the purchased item to the buyer. Additionally, the portal is not responsible for any damage that may occur to the item during transport between the buyer and seller.
  • Participating in trade on our platform means that you agree to the rules outlined in this terms of service. This means that you are committing to comply with all provisions of the terms of service, including those related to buying and selling and liability for any violations.
