Currently, Aptos maintains and operates aptoslabs.com as a portal for news, information, and updates about the Aptos protocol or blockchain (the “Aptos Network”) and the Aptos ecosystem, and to provide access to certain Aptos services, including Aptos Explorer. For the avoidance of doubt, Aptos does not control the Aptos Network and cannot control activity and data on the Aptos Network, including without limitation the activities of persons who develop and use applications on the Aptos Network, the validation of transactions on the Aptos Network, or any other use or access of the Aptos Network. The Aptos Network is an open-source protocol that is maintained and processed by Aptos Network validators across the globe.

You agree that by using the Service you are at least 18 years of age (or the age of legal majority) or accessing the Service under the supervision of a parent or guardian, and you are legally able to enter into a contract. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a user under the age of 18 (or the age of legal majority), you agree to be fully responsible for the acts or omissions of such user in relation to the Service. If you use the Service on behalf of another person or entity, (a) all references to “you” throughout the Terms will include that person or entity, (b) you represent that you are authorized to accept these Terms on that person’s or entity’s behalf, and (c) in the event you or the person or entity violates these Terms, the person or entity agrees to be responsible to us.

PLEASE NOTE: THE “DISPUTE RESOLUTION” SECTION OF THESE TERMS CONTAINS AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE THAT REQUIRES DISPUTES TO BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND PROHIBITS CLASS ACTION CLAIMS. IT AFFECTS HOW DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND APTOS ARE RESOLVED. BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY.

APTOS SHALL HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE ANY SUPPORT OR OTHER SERVICES TO YOU RELATING TO DEVELOPER CONTENT.

DEVELOPER PORTAL 

(a) Generally.

Certain portions of the Service, including, but not limited to, the Aptos Developer Portal, currently available at developers.aptoslabs.com and Aptos Game Stack, currently available at gamestack.aptoslabs.com, may enable you to obtain access to APIs that Aptos makes available from time to time (collectively, the “API Services”). Certain portions of the API Services may be provided for free (“Free API Services”), while other portions may be provided on a paid subscription basis (“Paid API Services”). 

To access the API Services, you must create an account (“API Service Account”) by signing in using a third-party service authorized by Aptos. By connecting to the API Services via a third-party service, you give us permission to access and use your information from that service (including, without limitation, your e-mail address) as permitted by that service, and to store log-in credentials for that service. 

You are solely responsible for monitoring the use of your API Service Account and API key, maintaining the confidentiality of your API Service Account log-in credentials, and restricting access to your computer(s) and other related equipment, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your API Service Account, including any use of your API key. If you have reason to believe that your API Service Account is no longer secure (for example, in the event of a loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of your credentials), you agree to immediately notify Aptos.

(b) Payments; Disclaimers.

If you elect to use Paid API Services, all fees must be paid in advance, payment obligations are non-cancelable once incurred (subject to any cancellation rights set forth herein), and fees paid are non-refundable. Fees stated are exclusive of any taxes, levies, duties, or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use, and withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction (collectively, but, for clarity, excluding taxes based on our net income, “Taxes”). You will be responsible for paying all Taxes associated with your purchases and/or subscriptions in connection with any Paid API Services.

For the most current information about the subscription fees that apply to API Services, please review the pricing and payment terms that are made available on the applicable API Service website (“Pricing and Payment Terms”), which are incorporated by reference herein. We may make any portion of the API Services available on a subscription basis, discontinue subscriptions for certain Paid API Services, or add or amend the applicable subscription fees at our sole discretion. When we add or amend subscription fees, we will update our Pricing and Payment Terms. Any change to the Pricing and Payment Terms will become effective in the next billing cycle.

(i) Payment Method; Payment Information.

To use Paid API Services, you must provide at least one (1) current, valid payment card that is accepted by us and our Payment Processor (as defined below) (“Payment Method”). By providing a Payment Method, you agree that we or our Payment Processor are authorized to periodically charge the applicable fees in addition to any applicable taxes and service fees on a recurring basis until you cancel your subscription. The fees for the Paid API Services and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Paid API Services, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged to your Payment Method on the specific payment date indicated on your API Service Account. The length of your billing cycle will depend on the type of subscription that you choose when you signed up for the Paid API Service. Fees are fully earned by Aptos upon payment by you. In some cases, your payment date may change (for example, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled, when you change your subscription plan or if your paid subscription began on a date not contained in a given month). We may authorize your Payment Method in anticipation of service-related charges through various methods. 

By purchasing a Paid API Services subscription, you agree that our third-party payment processor (currently Stripe, Inc. (“Stripe” or “Payment Processor”)), may process your payment of the applicable fees. Please see Stripe’s Services Agreement, currently available at https://stripe.com/us/legal, and Stripe’s Privacy Policy, currently available at https://stripe.com/us/privacy, as each may be amended by Stripe in accordance with the terms set forth therein, for information on how Stripe collects and uses personal information. We or our Payment Processor will attempt to verify the Payment Method you provide and may do so by processing an authorization hold. Payment must be received prior to us having any obligation to provide you with the applicable Paid API Services. For all payments of fees described herein, our Payment Processor will collect your Payment Method details and charge your chosen Payment Method. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any breaches of credit card or other Payment Method security or privacy.

If your Payment Method or any related information changes, you agree to promptly update such information so that we or Payment Processor may complete the applicable transaction and contact you as needed.

(ii) Payment Representations and Warranties. 

You represent and warrant that: (1) the Payment Method information you supply to Aptos and/or to its Payment Processor, as applicable, is true, accurate, correct, and complete; (2) you are duly authorized to use the Payment Method(s); (3) you will pay any and all charges incurred by users of your Payment Method in connection with the Paid API Service; (4) charges incurred by you will be honored by your Payment Method company; (5) you will not allow or enable anyone else to use your API Service Account (including, without limitation, by sharing your password(s) or any other authentication credentials with anyone else, or by attempting to transfer your subscription to anyone else); and (6) you will report to Aptos any unauthorized or prohibited access to or use of your subscription and/or API Service Account, password(s) or other authentication credentials.

(iii) Disclaimer. 

WE DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO, AND YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR: (1) ANY SECURITY OR PRIVACY BREACHES RELATED TO YOUR API SERVICE ACCOUNT OR YOUR CREDIT CARD OR OTHER PAYMENT METHOD, (2) ANY FEES THAT MAY BE CHARGED TO YOU BY YOUR BANK IN CONNECTION WITH THE COLLECTION OF FEES, AND/OR (3) ANY UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR CREDIT CARD, DEBIT CARD, OR OTHER PAYMENT METHOD BY A THIRD PARTY.

(c) Subscription Plans.

(i) Automatic Renewals.

Subscriptions are available on an automatically renewing subscription basis and entail payment of subscription fees. YOUR SUBSCRIPTION TO ANY PAID API SERVICES WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW AT THE END OF THE SUBSCRIPTION TERM SPECIFIED ON YOUR API SERVICE ACCOUNT FOR SUBSEQUENT TERMS EQUAL IN LENGTH TO THE INITIAL SUBSCRIPTION TERM (EACH A “SUBSCRIPTION TERM”) UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CANCELLATION PROCEDURES DESCRIBED BELOW.

(ii) Automatic Billing and Policies.

When you enroll in a subscription to a Paid API Service, you expressly acknowledge and agree that: (1) Aptos and its Payment Processor are authorized to charge you, at the beginning of each Subscription Term, the subscription fee for the applicable Paid API Service, any applicable Taxes, and any other charges you may incur in connection with such Paid API Service, subject to adjustment as described herein; and (2) your subscription to the applicable Paid API Service is continuous until the earlier of: (A) your cancellation of such subscription, and (B) the suspension, discontinuation, or termination of your access to the applicable Paid API Service or to the Service in accordance with these Terms. You understand and acknowledge that the amounts billed may vary due to changes to subscription fees in accordance with the Pricing and Payment Terms, and/or changes in applicable Taxes, and you authorize each of Aptos and its Payment Processor to charge your Payment Method the changed amounts.

(iii) Cancellation; Refunds. 

You may de-activate your API Service Account or your subscription to any Paid API Service at any time, in your sole discretion, by using the appropriate functionalities of your API Service Account or by contacting us at terms@aptoslabs.com. If you cancel your subscription, you will continue to have access to the applicable Paid API Service through the end of your billing period; provided, however, that we may, subject to these Terms, suspend or terminate your subscription, your API Service Account, or any Paid API Services at any time, in our sole discretion. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AND ALL CORRESPONDING FEES WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW, AND YOU AUTHORIZE APTOS OR ITS PAYMENT PROCESSOR TO CHARGE YOU THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION FEES AND ANY TAXES, USING ANY ELIGIBLE PAYMENT METHOD APTOS OR ITS PAYMENT PROCESSOR HAS ON RECORD FOR YOU. If you believe you have been improperly charged and would like to request a refund, please contact us at terms@aptoslabs.com.

(c) Disclaimers. Your access to or use of any Games and your receipt and possession of any Rewards, is for entertainment purposes only and Aptos is under no obligation to promote, support, sell or provide any Games or Rewards. Your access to or use of any Games, or your receipt or possession of any Rewards does not give you any right, title or interest in any intellectual property rights of Aptos. Rewards are not financial or investment instruments or devices of any kind, and do not have any real-world monetary value whatsoever. Aptos is not responsible for any value attributed to, or changes or loss in the perceived value of, any Rewards. Games and any technology used to create and use Rewards is experimental, and it is not possible to guarantee, and Aptos does not guarantee, that any software or computer code used to create, trade, and store Rewards is free from bugs or errors.

Any attempt to sell, trade, or transfer any Non-Production Network Tokens outside of the applicable Non-Production Network will be null and void.

(b) Modification. Aptos may, in its sole discretion, decide to delete, wipe or otherwise remove any Non-Production Network at any time without notice, including, without limitation, the modification of the presence, amounts, or any other conditions applicable to Non-Production Network Tokens, without any liability to you or other Non-Production Network users. Aptos does not guarantee that Non-Production Network Tokens will continue to be offered for a specific length of time and you may not rely upon the continued availability of any Non-Production Network Tokens. If any Non-Production Network expires or is terminated by Aptos, you acknowledge and agree that your access to and use of your Non-Production Network Tokens will be removed, and all accrued Non-Production Network Tokens will be deleted from the respective Non-Production Network system. Non-Production Network Tokens will not be converted into any future rewards offered by Aptos.

GOVERNING LAW AND FORUM CHOICE 

These Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act, federal arbitration law, and the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in the “Dispute Resolution” section below, the exclusive jurisdiction for all Disputes (defined below) that you and Aptos are not required to arbitrate will be the state and federal courts located in the county of Santa Clara, California, and you and Aptos each waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Please read the following section carefully because it requires you to arbitrate certain disputes and claims with Aptos and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us. No class or representative actions or arbitrations are allowed under this arbitration provision. In addition, arbitration precludes you from suing in court or having a jury trial. 

(a) Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes. We each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Interface (collectively, “Disputes”) will be resolved solely by binding, individual arbitration and not in a class, representative or consolidated action or proceeding. You and Aptos agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms, and that you and Aptos are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms.

(b) Exceptions. As limited exceptions to the section above: (i) we both may seek to resolve a Dispute in small claims court if it qualifies; and (ii) we each retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court to prevent (or enjoin) the infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property rights.

(c) Conducting Arbitration and Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules are currently available at www.adr.org. A party who wishes to start arbitration must submit a written Demand for Arbitration to AAA and give notice to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration currently available at www.adr.org. The place of arbitration shall be Palo Alto, California. The language of arbitration shall be English. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to decide all issues relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability and scope of this arbitration agreement.

(d) Arbitration Costs. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules, and we won’t seek to recover the administration and arbitrator fees we are responsible for paying, unless the arbitrator finds your Dispute frivolous. If we prevail in arbitration we’ll pay all of our attorneys’ fees and costs and won’t seek to recover them from you. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law.

(e) Injunctive and Declaratory Relief. Except as provided above, the arbitrator shall determine all issues of liability on the merits of any claim asserted by either party and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. To the extent that you or we prevail on a claim and seek public injunctive relief (that is, injunctive relief that has the primary purpose and effect of prohibiting unlawful acts that threaten future injury to the public), the entitlement to and extent of such relief must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration. The parties agree that litigation of any issues of public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending the outcome of the merits of any individual claims in arbitration.

(f) Class Action Waiver. YOU AND APTOS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, if the parties’ Dispute is resolved through arbitration, the arbitrator may not consolidate another person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution section shall be null and void.

(g) Severability. With the exception of any of the provisions above (“Class Action Waiver”), if an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction decides that any part of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of these Terms will still apply.

UPDATES

There may be information on the Service that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions, including descriptions, pricing, availability, and various other information. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions and to change or update the information on the Service at any time, without prior notice. Aptos does not warrant that the content will be uninterrupted or error free or free of computer viruses, contaminants or other harmful items.

DISCLAIMER

THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS-IS” AND “AS-AVAILABLE” BASIS. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, APTOS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

APTOS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES THAT RESULT FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE; ANY CHANGES TO OR INACCESSIBILITY OR TERMINATION OF THE SERVICE; ANY DELAY, FAILURE, UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, OR ALTERATION OF ANY TRANSMISSION OR DATA; ANY TRANSACTION OR AGREEMENT ENTERED INTO THROUGH THE SERVICE; ANY ACTIVITIES OR COMMUNICATIONS OF THIRD PARTIES; OR ANY DATA OR MATERIAL FROM A THIRD PERSON ACCESSED ON OR THROUGH THE SERVICE. WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF THE SERVICE’S CONTENT OR THE CONTENT OF ANY WEBSITES LINKED TO THE SERVICE AND WE WILL ASSUME NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY (1) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICE, (2) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION AND/OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN, (3) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM THE SERVICE, (4) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH THE SERVICE BY ANY THIRD PARTY, AND/OR (5) ANY ERRORS, MISTAKES, INACCURACIES, OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT AND MATERIALS (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY OUTPUT), OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF ANY CONTENT OR MATERIALS (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY OUTPUT) POSTED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE SERVICE.

IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SERVICE, YOU AGREE THAT YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY SHALL BE FOR YOU TO DISCONTINUE YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

You shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542 or any other similar law of any jurisdiction, which says in substance: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. You may have other rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

The Service may link or otherwise provide access to products and services offered by third parties (each, “Third-Party Service”). Further, certain portions of the Service may enable you to sign in using a Third-Party Service, and/or to otherwise enable various Third-Party Services that may directly integrate with the Service.
