We sometimes need to provide additional terms for specific services (and such services are considered part of the “Platform” hereunder and shall also be subject to these Terms). Those additional terms and conditions, which are available with the relevant service, then become part of your agreement with us if you use those services. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and any additional applicable terms we may provide for a specific service, such additional terms shall take precedence for that specific service.
Universal Page retains the right to alter or modify these Terms at any time and at our sole discretion. If we make significant changes to these Terms, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you of such changes, such as by providing notice through the Platform or updating the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms. By continuing to access or use the Platform, you confirm your acceptance of the updated Terms and all of the terms incorporated therein by reference effective as of the date these Terms are updated. It is your sole responsibility to review the Terms from time to time to view any changes and to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions that apply when you access or use the Platform.

If you are representing a legal entity, you must have the authority to accept these Terms on its behalf and ensure that the entity is lawfully established and operates in accordance with applicable laws.
The Universal Page prohibits the use of its platform by individuals or entities that are, or are owned or controlled by, or acting on behalf of, persons or entities that are: subject to sanctions administered or enforced by the European Union or any other relevant governmental authority; listed on European Union sanctions lists such as the EU Consolidated Financial Sanctions List, or similar lists maintained by EU member states; located in, organized under the laws of, or residents in territories or countries under comprehensive sanctions by the European Union, including but not limited to countries such as Belarus, North Korea, or Syria (referred to as a “Restricted Person”); or involved in transactions or dealings with any Restricted Person.

All other third-party trademarks, registered trademarks, and product names mentioned on the Platform or contained in the content linked to or associated with any NFTs displayed on the Platform are the property of their respective owners. These cannot be copied, imitated, or used, in whole or in part, without the permission of the respective intellectual property rights holder. Mentioning any products, services, processes, or other information by name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier, or otherwise does not imply or constitute endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation by Universal Page.
Universal Page does not own, possess, or control NFTs or the smart contracts set up by third parties. The creators of these NFTs or smart contracts bear sole responsibility for their operation and functionality.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, we grant you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable, and non-exclusive license to access and use the Platform for your own personal use. This license is intended to enable you to use and enjoy the benefits of the Platform in the manner permitted by these Terms. The right to access the Platform will automatically terminate when your account is closed. Any other use of the Platform that is not in accordance with these Terms requires our prior written consent.
As a peer-to-peer web3 service, Universal Page helps you explore NFTs created by third parties and interact with the LUKSO blockchain. Universal Page does not make any representations or warranties about this third-party content visible through our Platform, including any content associated with NFTs displayed on the Platform, and you bear responsibility for verifying the legitimacy, authenticity, and legality of NFTs that you purchase from third-party sellers. We also cannot guarantee that any NFTs visible on Universal Page will always remain visible and/or available to be bought, sold, or transferred. Users are solely responsible for any content related to their NFTs.
These Terms solely govern the use of our Service. NFTs are available on public blockchains, are purchased, sold, or transferred between a buyer, seller and/or creator directly, and may be purchased, sold, or transferred by buyers, sellers, and/or creators without the use of our Platform and therefore without agreeing to our Terms. There may be terms and conditions that apply to the NFTs themselves set directly between buyers, sellers, and/or creators with respect to the NFT including with respect to the use of the NFT content and rights and obligations associated with a given NFT ("NFT Terms"). For example, when you click to get more details about any of the NFTs or NFT collections visible on Universal Page or view the NFT metadata, you may notice a third-party link to NFT Terms governing the use of the NFT that you will be required to comply with. Universal Page does not set the NFT Terms and is not party to any such NFT Terms, which are solely between the buyer, seller, and/or creator. The buyer, seller, and/or creator are entirely responsible for communicating, promulgating, agreeing to, and enforcing NFT Terms. You are responsible for reviewing such NFT Terms.
Sellers are solely responsible for determining and establishing the price of an NFT, inclusive of any applicable tax. Additionally, to the extent applicable, they are solely responsible for any mint count and minting mechanics for NFTs they sell.
For its Platform, Universal Page may receive certain fees. Universal Page does not set, collect, or determine other applicable costs, fees, and expenses associated with buying and selling an NFT, including but not limited to any creator earnings, gas, or transaction fees. These costs, fees, and expenses are paid directly to the seller, creator, payment processor, blockchain validator, or other third party, as applicable. Because these costs, fees, and expenses are not collected by Universal Page, it cannot refund them.
The Platform may also contain links or functionality to access or use third-party websites (“Third-Party Websites”) and applications (“Third-Party Applications”), or otherwise display, include, or make available content, data, information, services, applications, or materials from third parties (“Third-Party Materials”). When you click on a link to, or access and use, a Third-Party Website or Third-Party Application, though we may not warn you that you have left our Platform, you are subject to the terms and conditions (including privacy policies) of another website or destination. Such Third-Party Websites, Third-Party Applications, and Third-Party Materials are not under the control of Universal Page, and may be “open” applications for which no recourse is possible. Universal Page is not responsible or liable for any Third-Party Websites, Third-Party Applications, and Third-Party Materials. Universal Page provides links to these Third-Party Websites and Third-Party Applications only as a convenience and does not review, approve, monitor, endorse, warrant, or make any representations with respect to Third-Party Websites or Third-Party Applications, or their products or services or associated Third-Party Materials. You use all links in Third-Party Websites, Third-Party Applications, and Third-Party Materials at your own risk.

The Page Builder service allows users to create and customize their own personal website to showcase their digital assets on the LUKSO blockchain. The website created with the Page Builder is known as a Universal Profile Page (UPN), which is an NFT minted on the LUKSO blockchain. Each UPN has a unique domain within the universal.page domain, or a unique page name.
A limited number of UPNs are available for free, but users can reserve additional UPNs by purchasing them with LYX, the native cryptocurrency of the LUKSO blockchain. The price of a UPN depends on the length of a page name. The price of a UPN may change without notice. By using the Page Builder to create a unique UPN, users can turn their Universal Profile into a personalized website that showcases their digital assets on the LUKSO blockchain.
The Universal Page platform allows users to enable payments on their personal website, allowing them to receive LYX directly from other users. To make a payment, a user can navigate to the profile page of the recipient and initiate a transfer of LYX from their own profile. The payment can be accompanied by a message indicating the purpose of the payment.
The payments on the Universal Page platform are facilitated by a smart contract, which enables custom experiences such as attaching a message to the payment. The smart contract also enables payments to be made without any fees, as the transfers are recorded directly on the LUKSO blockchain. All transfers made through the payments contract are available for anyone to access, providing transparency and security for the transactions.
Universal Page uses LUKSO Standard Proposals (LSPs) to define the standards for digital assets on the platform. The relevant LSPs for the Marketplace are LSP7 - digital asset, and LSP8 - identifiable digital asset. These LSPs specify the requirements for listing and trading NFTs on the Universal Page platform.
The Universal Page platform is built on the LUKSO blockchain, which is a decentralized platform for creating and trading digital assets. LYX is the native currency of the LUKSO blockchain, and it is used for all transactions on the Universal Page platform, including purchasing UPNs, making payments, and trading NFTs on the Marketplace.
The Marketplace is a set of smart contracts that enable the listing of NFTs for sale, coordinating offers made by users, and facilitating the sale and transfer of sold NFTs. The Marketplace takes a 2.5% fee on each sale of an NFT.
The Marketplace contract does not acquire users' NFTs when they are listed for sale. Instead, the smart contract requests authorization to transfer the NFTs when they are sold. The Marketplace integrates with the Listings and Offers services to coordinate requirements such as the price of the NFT and any other conditions for making a sale. This allows users to easily trade NFTs on the LUKSO blockchain using the UniversalPage platform.
Listings are smart contracts that are used to describe and track the availability of LSP7 and LSP8 digital assets for sale by Universal Profiles on the Universal Page platform. The Listings contracts do not transfer or collect payments from users; instead, they are used to provide information about the NFTs that are available for sale.
Users have full control over their listings, and can create, update, and cancel any of their listings at any time. The Listings contracts provide an easy way for users to make their NFTs available for sale on the Marketplace, and provide potential buyers with information about the NFTs that are available.
Offers are smart contracts that are used to describe and track buy inquiries made by Universal Profiles on listings of NFTs available for sale on the Universal Page platform. Users can make only one offer per listing, but they can increase their offer (also known as "topping off") or cancel it at any time.
To make an offer, a user must pay an upfront fee to the offers escrow. A sale of an NFT only takes place if the seller accepts the offer. If the seller does not accept the offer, the user can cancel their offer at any time and their funds will be returned from the offers escrow.
The Offers contracts provide a way for buyers to express interest in purchasing an NFT, and for sellers to review and respond to offers made on their listings. This helps to facilitate the sale of NFTs on the Marketplace.
The Marketplace on the Universal Page platform takes into account royalties that may be charged on each sale of an NFT. Royalties are set up by the owner or creator of the NFT and can be a percentage of the sale price. The maximum amount of royalties that can be charged on a sale is 10%.
When an NFT is listed for sale on the Marketplace, the royalties are clearly stated on the frontend website, along with the total listing price and any fees that may be deducted from the sale price. This allows potential buyers to see the full cost of the NFT, including any royalties that may be charged, before making an offer to purchase the NFT.
Overall, the inclusion of royalties in the Marketplace helps to support the creators and owners of NFTs by allowing them to earn a portion of the proceeds from each sale of their NFTs.
The Universal Page platform charges a 2.5% fee on each sale of an NFT on the secondary Marketplace. This fee is non-refundable and will be deducted from the sale price of the NFT. For primary sales on drops the fee is 7%.
The Universal Page charges a 8% vault fee. This fee is non-refundable and will be deducted from the rewards earned by the vault.

These include, but are not limited to, price volatility of digital assets, and technical failures. Users should be aware that Universal Page does not control these underlying technologies and shall not be responsible for any loss or damage caused by interacting with them.
Universal Page does not collect, track, or make tax payments related to any activities on the platform, including the sale of NFTs on the Marketplace.

You represent and warrant that you are not situated in any such country or on any such list. You are responsible for, and hereby agree to comply at your own expense with all applicable EU export laws and regulations.
All sections that by their nature should survive the termination of these Terms shall continue in full force and effect after and notwithstanding any termination of these Terms by Universal Page or you. Termination will not limit any of Universal Page’s other rights or remedies at law or in equity.
