1. Snake/ NFT / Art
Striking Snake Syndicate is an NFT trait-generative project powered by the Ethereum blockchain and created by artists, writers, and developers at heart. We genuinely appreciate your support of our project and are humbled that you are here. It’s unfortunate that these terms of service (“TOS”) are necessary, but after consulting with several lawyers, they insisted that we include this TOS before our launch. Our intention is to make this project open and transparent, and to foster the creative spirit that we hope you bring to Striking Snake Syndicate. We are creators and NFT/Art enthusiasts just like you are. Visit our Discord, contact one of our administrators or moderators, and we will work to address any questions or concerns that you might have.

You can put your Art/NFT on clothing and merchandise, include them in video games and video projects, and generally do whatever you want with your Art/NFT.

6. Many Third-Party Uses Are Not Restricted
Nothing in these terms are meant to limit you or a third party from (i) owning or operating an NFT marketplace that permits the use or sale of the Snakes/Art, so long as the marketplace cryptographically verifies the ownership of the NFT to ensure that only the owner can use and display their Art/NFT/Snake; and (ii) owning or operating a third party website or application that permits the inclusion or involvement of the Snakes/Art generally, provided that the website or application verifies the ownership of the NFT to ensure that only the owner can use and display their Snake. Furthermore, nothing in this TOS is meant to restrict a third-party website’s ability to build tools which track traits or sales.
7. Limitations of Liability for Gas, Failed Transactions, Smart Contract Bugs
We have worked very hard to make sure that there are no bugs in our smart contract and that our initial NFT launch is smooth. As we have seen in many previous projects, however, sometimes things break. You agree to hold The Company harmless for any losses you may incur as-a-consequence of minting your NFT. These potential losses include any gas fees for failed transactions, any excessive gas fees charged due to website or smart contract bugs, and any loss of your NFT due to website or smart contract bugs.
8. No Guarantees or Future Promises
Snake Syndicate hopes to continue to develop this project and community. We have released a roadmap list outlining some of the future goals we hope to accomplish. While we intend to work towards those goals, sometimes things happen, and we cannot guarantee that this original project will sell out entirely nor can we guarantee future developments. You agree that your purchase of a Snake from our initial project is all you are guaranteed to receive with your initial purchase. Any future potential airdrops, community gatherings, or other benefits are ancillary to this purchase and not to be taken into consideration with your initial purchase. You agree that you are not relying on any future commitments by Snake Syndicate in using this site and participating in our NFT launch.
