1. INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW
TOGETHER LABS, INC. ("IMVU", "WE" OR "US") IMVU NFT TERMS OF SERVICE
THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (THE "TERMS") SET FORTH BELOW GOVERN YOUR PURCHASE AND USE OF THE IMVU NFTS (AS DEFINED BELOW) THROUGH OPENSEA OR OTHER IMVU NFT MARKETPLACE AND YOUR USE OF THE IMVU NFTS ON WWW.IMVU.COM AND/OR THROUGH THE MOBILE APPLICATION VERSION OF THE IMVU SERVICE. THESE TERMS SUPPLEMENT AND ARE IN ADDITION TO THE TERMS OF SERVICE, WHICH ARE INCORPORATED INTO THESE TERMS BY THIS REFERENCE. ALL OF THE TERMS OF THE SUCH TERMS OF SERVICE THAT APPLY TO IMVU, INC. SHALL APPLY TO TOGETHER LABS, INC. SO THAT ALL REFERENCES TO IMVU SHALL ALSO MEAN TOGETHER LABS, INC.
THESE TERMS ARE A LEGAL CONTRACT BETWEEN YOU AND TL AND GOVERN YOUR ACCESS TO, AND USE OF, THE IMVU NFTS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE OR PURCHASE ANY IMVU NFTS. BY PURCHASING OR USING ANY IMVU NFTS, YOU AGREE TO ABIDE BY EACH OF THE TERMS SET FORTH BELOW. ANY ADDITIONAL TERMS, CONDITIONS, AND/OR POLICIES REFERENCED HEREIN ARE MADE A PART OF THESE TERMS AND ARE SUBJECT TO THESE TERMS.
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 13 YEARS OF AGE TO PURCHASE OR USE THE IMVU NFTS OR, IF THE JURISDICTION IN WHICH YOU RESIDE REQUIRES YOU TO BE OLDER TO PURCHASE THE IMVU NFTS, YOU MUST BE THAT AGE.
WE CAN CHANGE THESE TERMS AT ANY TIME. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE PLATFORM AND/OR IMVU NFTS NOW, OR FOLLOWING THE PUBLICATION OF ANY CHANGES IN THESE TERMS, WILL INDICATE ACCEPTANCE AND AGREEMENT BY YOU OF SUCH CHANGES.
To the extent there is a conflict between these Terms and the TERMS OF SERVICE, these Terms will control as to the IMVU NFTS.
You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for ensuring that your use of the Platform, any third party website from which you purchase the IMVU NFTS, and the IMVU NFTS complies with the laws and regulations in the jurisdiction which you reside.
Certain NFTS cannot be used on the Platform. Other IMVU NFTS may be used on the Platform and will be identified so you can determine if they can be used on the Platform. You acknowledge and agree that in order for you to use those IMVU NFTS on the Platform, you must submit the IMVU NFT Request Form to our support team to activate usage of the IMVU NFT on the Platform for use with your avatar. You must provide all required information to use to enable the IMVU NFT on the Platform. If you have purchased an IMVU NFT from another user and are not the original purchaser, we will require the seller and you to verify that you own the IMVU NFT and you will be required to submit a IMVU NFT Redemption Request Form to our support team to activate your usage of the IMVU NFT on the Platform. We reserve the right to limit activation and use of any IMVU NFT (and the Artwork) on the Platform at any time.
2. TL IMVU NFTS
The unique non-fungible tokens (each, a “IMVU NFT” or multiple “IMVU NFTS”) that you purchase are linked to a unique, digital, audio-visual work created by TL and its content creators (the “Artwork”).
Third-Party Platform Fees and Gas Fees
The purchase and sale of IMVU NFTS on third-party marketplaces or platforms like OpenSea are subject to the terms and conditions of those marketplaces, which may include the collection of service fees and/or commissions. For more information, please refer to the terms applicable to the third-party platform, which TL does not control. You agree that the NFTS are not securities and you have no expectation of value or increased value in the NFTS.
Ethereum requires a transaction fee (a “Gas Fee”) to be paid for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum network. This includes all transactions of IMVU NFTS. Gas Fees are consumed by the blockchain platform in processing your transaction and are not refundable.
Taxes and Duties
You will be solely responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added and other taxes, duties, and assessments (except taxes on our net income) now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority associated with your use of the Platform, and/or payable as the result of your purchase, ownership, sale, transfer, use and/or exploitation of any IMVU NFT, and/or Artwork.

You own the IMVU NFT. If you purchase an IMVU NFT, you will own that IMVU NFT. As an owner of an IMVU NFT, you may sell your IMVU NFT.

- You may not use the Artwork in any manner as prohibited by the “Restrictions” set forth in Section 3 below.
The following restrictions apply to any purchase, sale, ownership, access, burning and/or other use of any IMVU NFT, Artwork, TL smart contract, and/or any software or script related or referred to by any TL smart contract. All of the following are prohibited and you agree that you will not do any of the following:
