TERMS OF SERVICE 

1. ABOUT US

We are Heni Tech LLC (collectively referred to as “Heni” “we” “our” or “us”), a limited liability company registered in Delaware under company number 5889663.  Our registered office is at 251 Little Falls Drive, Wilmington, DE 19808, United States.

You can contact us at [email protected]

2. OUR WEBSITE AND THESE TERMS

Damien Hirst is releasing his “Empresses” limited edition prints which are available for sale at https://nft.empresses.heni.com/ during a fixed time frame for purchase.  As such, the number of prints ordered will determine the final size of the edition. Buyers have the option to either buy a physical print or to buy a non-fungible token of the edition.  If a buyer chooses to buy a non-fungible token, then one non-fungible token will be generated for and associated with a specific physical print (each an “NFT”).  

Each NFT will be generated through smart contracts and recorded on the Palm blockchain, and will be associated with a digital copy of the print with which it is associated (“Digital Artwork”).  The NFT can be redeemed in exchange for the print with which it is associated (“Artwork”).

This HENI website (“Website”) enables the purchase of the NFTs.  

This Terms of Service is a binding agreement that governs your access to and use of the Website, including without limitation, the purchase of the NFTs offered through the Website, your use of the software and services provided in connection with such NFTs, and any additional digital or physical offerings that may be made available by us in connection with such NFTs (collectively, the “Service“). 

Please refer to our Privacy Policy for information about how we collect, use and share information about you. 

CHECK RESTRICTIONS ON PURCHASE: In some countries, and for certain people or entities, there may be restrictions on the purchase of NFTs under applicable export control and sanctions laws and regulations or restrictions on the use of our Service, and therefore the use of our Service may be limited or restricted. See clause 13 for details.

3. HOW TO BUY NFTS

      1. In order to purchase an NFT through our Website, you will need to install a browser extension called MetaMask.  MetaMask is a non-custodial digital wallet and service provider that allows you to purchase, store and engage in transactions using cryptocurrency.  Before you apply to purchase an NFT as described below, we will ask you to download MetaMask and to connect and unlock your electronic wallet through your account with MetaMask.  You will not be able to purchase an  NFT from us without completing this process.  
      2. If you lose access to your MetaMask digital wallet (for example, you lose the physical device on which your wallet is stored and/or the password or seed phase that is required to restore the wallet) then you will not be able to access your NFT.  
  • You may be required to provide certain identification information and documents, including to complete ‘Know Your Client’ (“KYC“) checks before you can complete your purchase of an NFT.  We will notify you by email with instructions related to our KYC process, if applicable.  The KYC checks will be carried out by a third-party provider on our behalf and you agree to accept their terms and conditions in order to complete the checks.  Such terms and conditions shall govern in the event of a conflict with this Terms of Service.  If you are notified by us that you are required to complete our KYC process, you may not complete your purchase of an NFT until the KYC process is complete.  Failure to complete the KYC check in the time we specify or failure to pass the KYC check may result in the rejection or cancellation of your purchase, even if we had previously informed you it had been accepted.  
    1. In addition to the initial KYC checks, we may also require you to provide additional information and/or documents at any time, including, but not limited to, the source of funds used for your purchase if we determine we are required to do so (i) in order to comply with any applicable law or regulation (including those laws related to anti-money laundering) and/or (ii) at the request of any competent authority.  If additional information and/or documents are required, we may, in our sole discretion, suspend or cancel your transaction until such additional information and/or documents are reviewed by us and accepted as satisfying the requirements of the applicable law.  Failure to provide such additional information and/or documents in the time we specify may result in the rejection or cancellation of your purchase, even if we had previously informed you it had been accepted.  We may also determine that the contents of such additional information and/or documents require us to reject or cancel your purchase.
    2. You acknowledge and agree that you are acting on your own behalf, and not as a broker, agent, employee or contractor of any other party.  You acknowledge and agree that the funds to be used for the purchase of an NFT do not originate from a person subject to financial sanctions or constitute or represent any person’s benefit from criminal conduct and that at least one of the following statements is an accurate representation as to the source of these funds: (i) the source is your own personal income derived from employment, property or asset sales, investments or profit distributions from a business; (ii) the source is a gift or a loan; or (iii) the source is inheritance.
    3. By initiating the purchase of an NFT, you agree that you are submitting a binding offer to purchase the NFT from us.  Your order is accepted and confirmed once the purchase is complete and we notify you that the purchase is complete.  You acknowledge that your purchase of the NFT cannot be refunded.
    4. Once your purchase is complete you will receive the NFT through your MetaMask wallet within the time period notified to you when we confirm your order.  
    5. Title to the NFT passes to you once your purchase is complete and then converts to title to the Artwork when the NFT is redeemed and the Artwork is delivered to you in accordance with this Terms of Service. The risk in and responsibility for the Artwork will transfer to you from the time we deliver it to the address provided by you to us.  

4. REDEMPTION OF NFT FOR ARTWORK 

Redemption Period 

  1. The owner of an NFT can redeem the NFT and arrange for delivery of the corresponding Artwork during a fixed time period starting from 10am ET 16th May 2022 and ending at 10am ET February 5th 2025 or such other dates as we may decide in our sole discretion (“Redemption Period“).  Your NFT must be redeemed and burned during the Redemption Period before the corresponding Artwork can be delivered to you.  Failure to redeem and burn your NFT in accordance with our instructions (as shown through the Website) may mean that you cannot receive the corresponding Artwork nor reclaim your burned NFT.
  1. You will be able to redeem and burn your NFT and request delivery of the corresponding Artwork  on any date during the Redemption Period.  
  2. If you fail to redeem the NFT and arrange for the Artwork to be delivered to you during the Redemption Period, you will lose all rights to the Artwork and we shall be entitled to dispose of or deal with (by sale or otherwise) any Artwork which cannot be delivered due to your failure to redeem the NFT.  We shall be discharged of any liability to you whatsoever in respect of the Artwork. 
  3. We will not be responsible or liable to you or any other party for errors or failures to execute any redemption, including, without limitation, errors or failures caused by: (i) your failure to follow our redemption instructions; (ii) any incorrect information submitted by you during the redemption process (iii) any loss of connection to our Website or Service unless caused by our gross negligence; (iv) a failure of any software or device used by you as part of the redemption process; or (v) any other failure to execute your redemption request  or for errors or omissions in connection with this activity unless caused by our gross negligence. 

Delivery of Artwork  

  1. If you redeem your NFT, we will arrange for the Artwork to be delivered to you (or to a person chosen by you to take possession) by our chosen carrier.  We will endeavour to arrange delivery within 3 months of the completion of the redemption process.
  2. You agree to pay all costs and import duties and taxes payable to deliver the Artwork to the address designated by you.  See clause 8 for details.
  3. If you lose access to the NFT you own (including, but not limited to, circumstances where access to the digital wallet you used to access the NFT has been lost), you will lose all rights to the corresponding Artwork.  

5. SECONDARY MARKETPLACES AND THIRD-PARTY SITES

    1. You are permitted to sell, trade, or distribute your NFT on any secondary marketplaces, platforms or exchanges operated by third parties that support NFTs (“Secondary Marketplaces“).  Note that the NFTs may not be compatible with all Secondary Marketplaces, and we make no guarantee about the availability or functionality of any Secondary Marketplace.  Any Secondary Marketplace on which you sell, trade, or distribute your NFT must include terms of use that limit the acquiror’s rights in the NFT in a manner that is consistent with clauses 7.7 and 7.8.  
    2. Our Website may include links to other websites or platforms including Secondary Marketplaces (collectively, “Third-Party Sites“).  For example, we may include a link to a Secondary Marketplace on which we believe you can trade your NFT.  When you click such link, we may not warn you that you have left our Service and are subject to the terms and conditions and privacy policies of a Third-Party Site.  You agree that your use of any Third-Party Site is at your own risk even if we provide links to them from our Website.  You may need to comply with any terms and conditions governing the use of such Third-Party Sites and you should review all applicable terms and conditions, and should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction on any Third-Party Site.
    3. References or links to any Third-Party Site are provided for your convenience and information only.  Such links should not be interpreted as endorsements by us of the Third-Party Sites.  We have no control over the contents of those Third-Party Sites and disclaim any liability, and accept no responsibility, for the content of any Third-Party Site referred to or accessed through our Service.  The fact that we have listed a Secondary Marketplace on our Website is not a guarantee or endorsement that such Secondary Marketplace will support an NFT or allow all possible transactions with an NFT.
    4. You acknowledge and agree that we are not a party to any agreement or transaction where you trade on any Secondary Marketplace an NFT which was initially purchased via our Service, whether or not a commission or fee is received by us as a consequence of the transaction.  We are not liable for any loss incurred by you for fees or other amounts not received by you or from any amounts payable by you in connection with any transaction that takes place on Secondary Marketplaces or on any other Third-Party Sites.
    5. The NFTs implement Ethereum Improvement Proposal 2981 (EIP-2981) which would allow Secondary Marketplaces to obtain information about the payment of a royalty requested by us for secondary sales.  The information can be read from the smart contract.  If a Secondary Marketplace chooses to implement the information, the royalty shall be payable on all transactions of the NFT on that Secondary Marketplace.  The royalty shall be shared between us and Damien Hirst.  

6. LINKS TO OUR WEBSITE

    1. In connection with the sale of an NFT, you may link to our Website, provided you do so in a way that is fair, not misleading in any way, legal, and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it.  You must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval or endorsement on our part where none exists.  You must not establish a link to our Website on any website that is not owned by you and you must not frame our Website on any other website.  We reserve the right to withdraw the foregoing linking permission without notice.

7. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

  1. We are the owner or the licensee of, or have a valid right to use, all intellectual property rights in the Service and in the images, photographs, illustrations and other content created by us or for us or featured in connection with our Service (including the look and feel, design and graphics of our Website).  All such rights are reserved to us.  Except as permitted by law, you must not reproduce, distribute, transmit, disseminate, create derivate works of, perform, display or otherwise use in any way any material (or part thereof) on our Website or obtained via our Service other than the Artwork and Digital Artwork you may acquire.
  2. If your use of the Service breaches this Terms of Service, your right to use our Service will cease immediately and you must, at our option, return or destroy any copies or other infringing material so created.

NFT and Associated Artwork and Digital Artwork 

  1. You acknowledge that your purchase of an NFT means you have full ownership rights in the NFT itself, including the right to store, sell and transfer your NFT.  However, your purchase of an NFT from us or any third party does not provide any rights, express or implied, in (including, without limitation, any copyrights or other intellectual property rights in and to): (a) the Digital Artwork other than the right to copy and display the Digital Artwork for your own personal, non-commercial use and as set forth in clause 7.7 and 7.8 or (b) the Artwork other than ownership of that physical piece.  
  2. We are not responsible or liable if the Digital Artwork becomes inaccessible to you for any reason, or for any modifications or changes to the Digital Artwork that someone other than us may make, including the deletion of the Digital Artwork.  
  3. You acknowledge that Digital Artworks can be copied and distributed and that we cannot guarantee that there will be not be multiple copies of a Digital Artwork associated with your NFT.  However, we will not sell more than one NFT associated with a particular Artwork.
  4. You acknowledge that we or Damien Hirst could make additional copies of, and distribute, the Digital Artwork and could sell or otherwise assign the copyright or other intellectual property rights or economic rights in the Digital Artwork.

Licence to Digital Artwork

  1. You have the right to display and share the Digital Artwork associated with your NFT: (i) for the purpose of sharing the Digital Artwork on Secondary Marketplaces in connection with the sale, transfer, or trade of your NFT and (ii) for the purpose of sharing your purchase or ownership of your NFT on social media and digital platforms. As noted above, you do not have any rights or license to the Artwork other than ownership of that physical piece.
  2. Whilst you are permitted to sell, transfer or trade the NFT, you do not have the right to use the Digital Artwork for commercial purposes including, without limitation, to do any of the following for commercial purposes: (i) reproduce the Digital Artwork or make or sell copies of it; (ii) modify the Digital Artwork or create derivate works of it; (iii) incorporate the Digital Artwork in any other work or forms of media; (iv) mint, tokenize or create an additional cryptographic token, including a non-fungible token, representing or associated with the Digital Artwork; or (v) otherwise exploit the Digital Artwork for commercial purposes.
  3. Upon your sale, transfer or burning of the NFT or if your ownership of the NFT is relinquished for any other reason, your rights and interest in the NFT and Digital Artwork immediately and automatically terminate.

8. PRICE AND PAYMENT

Smart contracts and gas fees

  1. Transacting on the Palm blockchain, including the purchase and transfer of NFTs, may require the payment by you of a transaction fee (“Gas Fee“) on the Palm blockchain.  The amount of the Gas Fee will vary and is determined by the manner of operation of the Palm Blockchain.  Gas Fees are paid to miners on the Palm blockchain as a reward for validating transactions and adding them to the blockchain.  We do not receive any portion of them, nor do we have any control over the amount of the Gas Fee you may be required to pay when you make a transaction on the Palm blockchain.  You acknowledge and agree that: (a) you are responsible to pay the Gas Fee regardless of the amount, (b) that the Gas Fee is not payable to us nor is it refundable under any circumstances, and (c) the price of each NFT is exclusive of the Gas Fees that you may need to pay.   
  2. You may be able to choose the amount of the Gas Fees to pay but the lower the fee, the longer it may take for the transaction to be confirmed.  We suggest using your wallet’s recommended Gas Fees.  We do not have any control over the timeframe for confirmation of your transaction.  

Purchase price and charges

  1. All prices and charges payable to us are shown in United States Dollars (“USD“).  If you pay in a fiat currency other than United States Dollars, the actual amount to be paid in your chosen currency will be determined by the exchange rate used by your bank or credit card company when you are actually charged.  We are not responsible for any exchange rate fees charged by your bank or credit card company, and such amounts are not charged by or received by us. 
  2. The purchase price of the NFT will be the price indicated on the Website.  Any taxes on your purchase are your responsibility.  
  3. If you choose to pay in cryptocurrency, please refer to clause 9 below. 

Taxes and customs duties

  1. If you redeem an NFT, the costs of shipping the Artwork (and any applicable VAT, sales tax, use tax or any other taxes payable by us in connection with the delivery of the Artwork) will be calculated once you provide a delivery address and will be charged to and payable by you prior to delivery of the Artwork unless otherwise stated.  We will notify you with details of these costs and how to pay them before the Artwork is shipped.  If you fail or refuse to pay these shipping costs in whole or in part, you will not be able to receive the Artwork nor reclaim your burned NFT.
  2. In addition to the amounts payable to us, you are responsible for paying any taxes, customs duties and fees due to local customs or revenue authorities (“Import Duties and Taxes“) which are triggered or levied when the Artwork is shipped to the country you designate.  Where Import Duties and Taxes are due, you are solely responsible for paying them.  We do not collect and pay Import Duties and Taxes on your behalf.  You will need to pay any amounts due directly to the applicable customs authority including any penalties, fines, or any other damages that may arise as a result of failure to make timely payment.  We are not able to offer any guidance on Import Duties and Taxes and we recommend that you contact your local customs office for details.  Failure to pay the applicable Import Duties and Taxes means you may not be able to receive your Artwork.  We will have no liability to you in such event.

9. PAYMENT METHODS

    1. Payment for the NFTs may be made by any of the methods specified in this Terms of Service or on our Website.  Payment to ship the Artwork may be made by the methods notified to you when you apply to redeem the NFT and arrange for delivery of the Artwork.

Cryptocurrency payments

  1. We accept payments in cryptocurrencies.  The cryptocurrencies we accept will be displayed on the Website.  All cryptocurrency transactions will be handled through a payment gateway used by us and with which you will deal directly.  Only cryptocurrency payments we specify as approved will be credited towards an NFT purchase.   If you choose to pay with Ether or USDC, you must pay on the Ethereum blockchain and not Palm.   Payments on the Palm blockchain are not supported. 
  2. Before you can pay with cryptocurrency, you will need to ensure your wallet has a sufficient amount of cryptocurrency.  When you get to the payment option screen you will be presented with the various ways you can pay.  If you choose to pay using cryptocurrency then you will be taken to the payment page of the payment gateway which allows you to select the applicable cryptocurrencies.  The purchase price of the NFT in USD will be converted into the current value of the applicable cryptocurrency at the time your transaction is processed, pursuant to a source determined by us at our sole discretion.   

How much cryptocurrency is required

  1. You must send the exact amount of cryptocurrency specified by us.   If you send less or more than that amount, we will issue a refund of the full amount you send, and you will need to repeat the checkout process.  We cannot guarantee that the NFT purchase price will be the same for any repeat payment because the cryptocurrency conversion rate may have changed.

How soon must the payment be made

  1. Once you choose to pay with cryptocurrency, you must send it within the timeframe displayed by the payment gateway.  If you do not send it within this timeframe, the conversion rate may have changed and will need to be refreshed in order to complete the payment.

Confirmation of transactions 

  1. When you make a transaction using cryptocurrency, your transaction will not be recorded on the blockchain until it has been included in a block on the blockchain, at which point the blockchain has one confirmation.  Each new block added to the blockchain is another confirmation for your transaction.  A specific number of block confirmations is required in order to consider a transaction final.  The number of block confirmations required to consider a transaction final will vary depending on the applicable cryptocurrency.  We require 6 confirmations for Bitcoin and 35 confirmations for Ether and USDC.
  2. The required number of block confirmations must be processed within 5 days from the date on which you make the transaction.  We have no control over this, and a failure of your payment to be finalized means you may need to pay again, using the then-current cryptocurrency conversion rate.

Transactions sent to the incorrect wallet address 

  1. You must send the cryptocurrency to the address that we provide to you.  Since transactions are irreversible on the blockchain, if you make a mistake and your cryptocurrency is sent to the incorrect address, you will lose the cryptocurrency and the order cannot be accepted.  It is your responsibility to make sure that you send the cryptocurrency to the correct address.  We are not liable for any failure by you to send the cryptocurrency to the correct address we provide to you.

Conversion rates for refunds

  1. We reserve the right in exceptional circumstances not to accept payment for an NFT and to issue a refund.  If we have not accepted your payment, and we issue a refund, and you paid in fiat currency, you will be refunded using USD.  If you paid in cryptocurrency, your refund will be using USD as the base currency for the purchase price, converted into the applicable cryptocurrency at the current rate at the time we issue the refund (and not at the time when we confirm that a refund will be issued). 
  2. This ensures that the equivalent USD amount you pay at the time of purchase is also returned to you in cryptocurrency.  In order to protect both you and us from fluctuations in the cryptocurrency rate, we do not refund at the cryptocurrency rate that existed at the time of purchase.  This could mean that you receive more or less cryptocurrency than the amount you paid at the time of the transaction.  However, the USD value will still be the same.

10. COMPLAINTS

    1. If you have any questions or complaints about the Service please email us at [email protected]

    6. You acknowledge and agree that once the smart contract has been executed in connection with the purchase of an NFT, it cannot be reversed and therefore there are no refunds.

    8. You acknowledge and agree that transacting with NFTs may expose you to certain regulatory risks, including those relating to the tax treatment of NFTs or cryptocurrencies, and whether NFTs might be deemed securities or another regulated class of assets. 
    9. We do not own or control the Palm blockchain, MetaMask, or any other Third-Party Site or service that you might access, visit, or use for the purpose of enabling you to use the Service.  You acknowledge and agree that we will not be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties or third-party services, nor will we be liable for any loss or damage that you may suffer as a result of your transactions or any other interaction with any such third parties or third-party services.
    10. You acknowledge that you have a sufficient understanding of the functionality, usage, storage, transmission mechanisms and other material characteristics of, blockchain technology, NFTs, digital assets, digital wallets, and cryptocurrencies to understand this Terms of Service and to appreciate the risks and implications of purchasing NFTs.  You acknowledge and agree that you have obtained sufficient information to make an informed decision to purchase an NFT, including (if you choose to do so) reviewing the code of the smart contract, the NFT metadata, and the NFT, as well as the storage system used for the Digital Artwork, and fully understand and accept the functions of the same and any underlying risks.
    11. By making a payment with a cryptocurrency, you acknowledge and agree that Heni has no liability for your payment not reaching us, including, but not limited to, instances where payment through the Palm blockchain was unsuccessful.  It is solely your responsibility to confirm that your cryptocurrency payment was received and accepted by Heni.
    12. You acknowledge and agree that your purchase of an NFT complies with applicable laws and regulation in your jurisdiction.
    13. You acknowledge and agree that certain information about your transaction, including your digital wallet address, may be publicly available on the Palm blockchain.

Financial risks

  1. Use of the Service, including buying NFTs may carry financial risk.  Transactions executed by smart contracts are irreversible and may be non refundable.  The risk of loss in trading crypto assets, including NFTs, can be substantial.  The prices of crypto assets are volatile and fluctuations in the price of crypto assets could materially and adversely affect the value of your NFTs.  
  2. You must carefully consider whether buying NFTs is appropriate for you in view of your financial circumstances and you acknowledge and agree that you will access and use the Service at your own risk including the risk that you may lose access to your NFT or the Digital Artwork  indefinitely.  We are not liable and accept no responsibility in connection with your use of the Service and transactions facilitated by it.
