These terms and conditions of use (“Terms”) are entered into between Yesports Ltd (BVI Company No. 2078379) (“Yesports”, “we” or “us”) and you (“you” or “User”).
Yesports is the operator of this website (“website”) app, platform and related services made available under the Yesports name including the marketplace available on the platform (together, the “Platform”).
In these Terms, the User means (as applicable) a person using any part of the Platform in any capacity, including a person using the Platform as a trader, staker, buyer, seller, member or a person browsing or accessing the Platform. We do not provide any investment, financial, legal, regulatory, accounting, tax or similar professional advice on the Platform. Blockchain, cryptocurrency, tokens, trading Non-Fungible Tokens and related transactions such as staking and lottery transactions involve a high degree of risk and there is always the possibility of loss, including the loss of digital currency, NFTs, tokens and assets. Yesports is not responsible for any costs, taxes, losses or damages a User incurs as a result of or in connection with using the Platform.
Users acknowledge that buying, selling, staking and trading tokens and NFTs and obtaining membership of NFT Teams is significantly risky and is unregulated by any central or government authority. Users warrant that they understand the risks associated with access to or use of this Platform and any goods, services or products offered or made available or used in connection with this Platform.
A User may only access and use this Platform if you are at least 18 years old and have the legal capacity to enter into a binding contract. By using the Platform and/or accepting any services made available on this Platform, you warrant that you are at least 18 years old and have the legal capacity to enter into a binding contract.
These Terms will prevail over any other terms or agreement between a User and Yesports, including any other terms proposed by a User.
Users acknowledge and agree that Yesports is not a party to any agreement entered into between different Users and Yesports does not have control over the conduct of Users of the Platform, including and in relation to the procurement or sale of illegally acquired Memberships or NFTs on the Platform or the availability of tokens, cryptocurrency or other assets which may be used on the Platform.
For the purpose of these Terms:
The Platform will provide the ability for Users to obtain or acquire Membership and become a “Member” of an Esports Team.
You must set up a wallet to acquire a Membership. Each Membership is a type of digital blockchain collectible known as a cryptoasset. Membership can be acquired on the Platform and is effectively provided in the form of a NFT.
Membership sold by Esports Teams on the Platform may grant Members exclusive access to benefits, rights or rewards from the Esports Teams. The Esports Teams have sole discretion as to the rewards, benefits and rights of Membership and when and how rewards, benefits and rights may be redeemed or used by the Members. Examples of such reward include but are not limited to participation in raffles, gaming equipment, signed merchandise, participation in AMAs and coaching sessions with Esports Teams.
The rights attached to Membership are designated solely by the relevant Esports Team and may be varied, supplemented, reduced or amended from time to time by Esports Teams at their sole discretion. Yesports has no involvement in the designation of rights which attach to Membership of an Esports Team. Benefits will be solely as specified by the relevant Esports Team on the Platform or as otherwise specified in writing by the Esports Team. Yesports has no responsibility or liability for, or arising in relation to, any benefits or rights of Membership.
The Esports Teams may vary and/or update the Membership benefits available on the Platform from time to time.
For the avoidance of doubt, if you sell or transfer or otherwise dispose of your Membership to another person, your entitlement to any benefits associated with that Membership will cease from the date of the relevant sale, transfer or disposal.
Membership can be traded on marketplaces, including the Yesports platform. If you wish to trade your Membership on a marketplace, it is important that you carefully consider and accept the following risks:
Users will need to connect their Blockchain Wallet to the Platform (“Registration”) to acquire Membership.
You are solely responsible for any tax liabilities incurred in respect of your purchase and/or subsequent sale of a Membership, including any applicable capital gains tax payable on the proceeds of any subsequent sale of your Membership.
In addition to our various other rights noted in these Terms, Yesports reserves the right in its absolute discretion to take any of the following actions without incurring any liability to you for any damage, loss, or expense that you may suffer as a result:
Fees and acquisition costs will be payable when you acquire a Membership as indicated on the Platform.
Yesports may charge you for the cost of delivering your Membership benefits and/or may charge you reasonable fees associated with your Membership.
Yesports will receive service fees each time a Membership is bought, sold or traded on the Platform.
Yesports may deduct the service fee direct from the sale proceeds paid or payable by a User before the sale proceeds are transferred to or made available. The service fees paid to or deducted by Yesports is non-refundable.
The fees payable for using the Platform may be amended at the sole and absolute discretion of Yesports at any time. Yesports intends to advise of any amendments to the fee by posting the amended fee on the website. Yesports reserves the right to introduce new fees or amend existing fees for use of the Platform at any time at its discretion.
All transactions on the Platform, including without limitation buying, selling and staking, are facilitated by smart contracts existing on the Ethereum blockchain. The Ethereum blockchain requires the payment of a transaction fee (“Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the Ethereum blockchain, and thus every transaction occurring on the Platform. The Platform is built on the Polygon network to connect Ethereum-compatible blockchain networks and address scalability issues on the current Ethereum blockchain. While this may reduce the value of Gas Fees, the value of Gas Fees changes is unpredictable and are entirely outside of the control of Yesports or the Platform. Users acknowledge that under no circumstances will a contract, agreement, offer, sale, bid, or other transaction on the Platform be invalidated, revocable, retractable, or otherwise unenforceable on the basis that the Gas Fee for the given transaction was unknown, too high, or otherwise unacceptable to a User. Users also acknowledge and agree that Gas Fees are unequivocally non-refundable under all circumstances.
When you acquire a Membership pursuant to these Terms, you will own the underlying NFT. Such ownership shall be recorded and may give you the rights to access certain Membership benefits sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of your Membership.
Yesports and its licensors retain ownership of all intellectual property rights of any kind related to the Platform (including, without limitation, all website artworks, applicable copyrights, trademarks and other proprietary rights in respect of designs, code, software and other elements of the Platform.
All of the intellectual property rights in the Membership and NFTs bought, sold or traded on the Platform are owned by Yesports (and/or the Esports Teams or third party licensors) and will remain with Yesports (and/or its Esports Teams or third party licensors) even after ownership is transferred to or acquired by the Member.
When using any part of the Platform, Users must not directly or indirectly:
Each User agrees that Yesports may send them promotional communication by email, including newsletters, special offers, surveys, updates, and any information that Yesports may consider will be of interest to the User.
Users also agree that Yesports may send communications by email or text message that pertain to the status of a purchase or sale of a Membership and other communication that pertain to their interaction with the Platform.

In the absence of any express transfer of intellectual property rights in a NFT, no intellectual property rights associated with or arising in a Membership will be transferred to a User under a transaction completed on the Platform.
Users must ensure that they review the terms of sale under a smart contract and must determine whether the terms of sale are fit for their purpose before completing the transaction.
