In some instances, we may provide services that enable Users to engage in transactions for NFTs. In these instances, we may receive certain fees in connection with such transactions that Users at their sole discretion initiate through the Site. Any transactions Users enter into through the Site are conducted and settled according to the rules embodied in certain ‘smart contracts’ deployed to the relevant blockchain. In no case, whatsoever, do we take possession of User funds nor do we guarantee that transactions will execute as intended, and we are not liable for transactions that do not execute as anticipated. Transactions for NFTs carry unique risks and you assume the risk associated with those transactions.
Additionally, transactions in NFTs, or NFT related transactions, operate according to rulesets determined by the underlying blockchain, or distributed ledger, on which the NFT involved in the transaction exists. We cannot guarantee the functionality of any underlying blockchain, or distributed ledger, and in no way can be held responsible for failures that occur on the underlying blockchain due to, but not limited to, the following occurrences: network downtime, soft forks, hard forks, merges, DAO votes, 50%+1 attacks, double-spending instances or bugs, consensus failures, distributed denial of service attacks, key loss, key theft, wallet bugs, wallet code failure, and the like.
From time to time, we may work with third parties to facilitate transactions that occur via the Site. We do not guarantee that third parties that we may work with will execute transactions as intended. Consequently, we are not responsible for the functionality of third party systems to facilitate said transactions.
By engaging in the transactions related to NFTs and other digital assets, you confirm that you are able to bear the economic and other risks associated with such transactions. You understand that the value of NFTs and other digital assets can be zero at any time.

We respect the intellectual property rights of others. It is our policy to respond promptly to any claim that content posted on the Site infringes the copyright or other intellectual property rights of any person. We will use reasonable efforts to investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate action under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and these Terms, including removing or disabling access to content claimed to be infringing and/or terminating accounts and access to the Site.
The DMCA provides a process for a copyright owner to give notification to an online site provider concerning alleged copyright infringement. When an effective DMCA notification is received, the online site provider responds under this process by taking down the offending content. On taking down content under the DMCA, we will take reasonable steps to contact the User responsible for minting the removed content so that a counter-notification may be filed if applicable. On receiving a valid counter-notification, we generally restore the content in question, unless we receive notice from the DMCA notice provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity. Our policies do not protect any information contained in any DMCA take-down notice or counter-notification. If you have any questions about your rights, copyright infringement, or the notification and counter-notification process under the DMCA, we recommend that you speak with an attorney.
If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any content on the Site infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the DMCA by providing us with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C. § 512 for further detail):
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works, a representative list of such works at that site.
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material. *Providing URLs in the body of your DMCA notification is the best way to help us locate content quickly
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you (the complaining party), such as an address, telephone number, and an electronic mail address at which you (the complaining party) may be contacted.
- A statement that you (the complaining party) have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you (the complaining party) are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
- **(Optional) Provide information, if possible, sufficient to permit us to notify the user(s) who posted the content that allegedly contains infringing material.
Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that information or an activity on the Site is infringing or that any material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, shall be liable to us and possibly others for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by us in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing or in replacing the removed material or enabling access to it.
We will take reasonable steps to promptly inform you if your content has been taken down upon receipt of an effective DMCA infringement take-down notification. If you believe that the content that was removed or to which access was disabled is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to mint and use the material, you may send us a counter notification containing the following information:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the material; and
- Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the U.S. district court in the state in which you reside (or the U.S. district court where our headquarters are located if your address is outside of the United States), and a statement that you will accept the service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement to us.
You have ten (10) business days after receipt of a DMCA take-down notice to send us an effective counter notification or the allegedly infringing material may not be restored.
Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing or that any material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, shall be liable to us for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by us in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing or in replacing the removed material or enabling access to it.
You must submit your DMCA take-down notices and counter notifications to us by email at the address listed below under Contact Information with the following subject/heading for the email: “Curta DMCA Take Down Notification.”
Official DMCA notices must provide all the information described above in order to be effective. If your DMCA notice is ineffective, we may ignore it and have no obligation to remove the allegedly infringing content.
Please read the following agreement to arbitrate (the “Arbitration Agreement”) in its entirety. This clause requires you to arbitrate disputes with us and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.
You agree that any dispute or claim relating in any way to: your access, use, or attempted access or use of the Site; any products sold or distributed through the Site; or any aspect of your relationship with us will be resolved by binding arbitration, except that (1) you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (2) you or Telepu may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyright, or patent). You agree that any such arbitration shall be settled solely and exclusively by binding arbitration held in New York, New York, administered by JAMS and conducted in English, rather than in court.
Any such arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the then-prevailing JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures (available at https://www.jamsadr.com/), except that any dispute involving claims and counterclaims over $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to the then-prevailing JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures.
The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (1) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement; and (2) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement, including but not limited to any claim that all or part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable; (3) decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Telepu; (4) grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim; (5) award monetary damages and grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to a party under applicable law, arbitration rules, these Terms (including the Arbitration Agreement) and Curta policies and guidelines. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. Such an award is final and binding upon you and us.
You understand that by agreeing to this Arbitration Agreement, you and Telepu are each waiving their right to trial by jury and to participate in a class action or class arbitration.
If any part of this Arbitration Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then such part shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue to be in full force and effect.
This Arbitration Agreement shall survive the termination of your relationship with us.
