4. Digital Assets
What you can do with Digital Assets on this Site
As described above, through the Site, you may have the opportunity to earn, buy, trade, donate, exchange and otherwise use various digital currencies, NFTs and other assets, including digital assets native to the Rally Network (an Ethereum sidechain) called Creator Coin (collectively, “Digital Assets”). Digital Assets are not legal tender and are not backed by any government, and they are not subject to protections or insurance provided by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Securities Investor Protection Corporation. Digital Assets that you may acquire on our Site are not intended as investments - they are designed for use and engagement between Creators and their fans.
You accept the risk of transacting with Digital Assets
While the Site may provide information about the estimated value of Digital Assets, including $RLY, Creator Coin and NFTs, and may include information about their historical value, the fiat value of all Digital Assets are subject to volatility and change, and Digital Assets could lose their value, both on an individual as well as a network-wide basis. Rally does not directly control and is not responsible for the value of any Digital Assets and makes no guarantee, express or implied, of their value in fiat. In addition, Digital Assets that you may use on the Site and on the Rally Network, may not be freely tradable or exchangeable outside of the Site or the Rally Network. You acknowledge and agree that any purchase of or transaction in Digital Assets conducted by you or on your behalf is made voluntarily, willfully, and exclusively at your own risk.
Rally does not provide you with advice or regulated services
In addition, you acknowledge and agree that Rally does not offer securities-related services in the United States or to U.S. persons and is not registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. You also acknowledge and understand that Rally is not a money transmitter and works with third party licensed money transmitter and compliance services entities to conduct regulated transactions. Rally does not provide investment, financial, tax, or legal advice. The information and applications provided in connection with the Site does not constitute investment advice, financial advice, trading advice, or any other sort of advice, and should not be treated by any user as such. Rally makes no recommendation and, apart from providing estimated value or historical value data in certain circumstances, does not provide any advice about the actual present fiat value of any Digital Asset.
5. Creator Coin
Creator Coin purchases
You will be able to purchase Creator Coin through the Site and may have the opportunity to use Creator Coin to purchase or redeem other Digital Assets, or engage in various transactions with the Ethereum mainnet. You may be required to provide information prior to the completion of a transaction for purposes of identity verification and detection and prevention of fraud, money laundering, terrorist financing and other financial crimes. This information may include your legal name, date of birth, mailing address, and picture of a government issued identification (e.g., passport or driver’s license) and/or a selfie, and other information that may be deemed necessary or appropriate by third party payment processors, payment services providers and compliance services providers who partner with Rally to manage transactions on the Site for purposes of identity verification. Rally reserves the right to cancel or reject any transaction for which you provide incomplete or incorrect information, or that you do not confirm within a reasonable time following your initiation of the transaction.
The Site currently supports the purchase of Creator Coin through a debit or credit card that matches the name on your account. You must provide the information requested and follow the relevant instructions provided by the Site to complete your transaction for Creator Coin. Following receipt and processing of any required information, confirmation of your payment method and completion of the transaction, the purchased Creator Coin will generally be included in your account and listed in your portfolio balance within 1 hour.
Bridging in and bridging out between Ethereum and Rally.io
Each Creator Coin is backed by $RLY, an ERC-20 governance token native to the $RLY protocol on the Ethereum mainnet. Holders of $RLY are able to make proposals and vote in order to govern and influence the development of the $RLY protocol. The bridging in of $RLY from your Ethereum mainnet wallet to your Rally.io account, where it can be converted to Creator Coin, is currently supported on the Site. For further information and a description of restrictions and requirements to use the “Bridge In” feature, please see the wiki, which may be updated from time to time.
The bridging out of Creator Coin or $RLY from your Rally.io account to $RLY in your Ethereum wallet, where it can be used in the Ethereum mainnet, is currently supported on the Site. For further information and a description of restrictions and requirements to use the “Bridge Out” feature, please see the wiki, which may be updated from time to time.
PLEASE NOTE: Your ability to use all features on the Site may be limited, depending on your place of residence. Because of jurisdictional restrictions, while you may be able to purchase Creator Coin, bridge your $RLY from the Ethereum mainnet to the Site, and otherwise interact with the Site, you will be restricted from moving any $RLY you own on the Rally Network to the Ethereum mainnet, and, accordingly, any value you acquire will be locked in the Rally Network sidechain. For the most updated list of restricted jurisdictions, please see the wiki, which may be updated from time to time. In addition, residents of US Sanctioned countries and sanctioned individuals and businesses may not use the Site or any features of the Site. You are responsible for understanding and complying with these restrictions if you decide to interact with the Site. These restrictions are subject to change.
Payment processors, payment service providers and compliance
Rally will partner with third party payment processors, payment services providers and compliance services providers to manage transactions on the Site. While Rally does not charge any fees for your use of or participation on the Site, to the extent that you engage in transactions on the Site, such third party services providers may charge certain transaction fees. In addition, the “Bridge Out” feature will require ETH in your Ethereum wallet to pay transaction fees, called gas, on the Ethereum mainnet. During the transaction completion process, if fees are charged by such third parties to complete your transaction, or gas fees are charged due to a Bridge Out transaction, the amount of your transaction price that will be allocated towards fees will be automatically deducted from the total transaction price and identified, for example as “Fees” and “Transaction Fees”, prior to the completion of your transaction. As a result, the amount of $RLY or Creator Coin that you are transacting with will be equal to the amount of the total transaction price after deduction of such fees.
You agree that you will provide us with all the information that we reasonably request, and that if you register with a third party services provider designated by us, you will provide all information required by such third party services provider in order to process payments. It is your responsibility to ensure that all information provided to us and to any third party services provider is accurate, true and complete. In addition, you agree that your account with any third party services provider is subject to all terms, conditions and privacy policies of such provider. You agree that you are solely responsible for payment of the fees, costs and expenses of a third party services provider in connection with your transaction that may be incurred by you and, in some cases, deducted from your payments. We are not responsible for any delay, failure, damage, or liability caused by a third party services provider, any other third party, a force majeure, or your failure to timely or properly provide us with requested information, or, with respect to third party services provider, your failure to timely or properly set up an account with the payment services provider or otherwise provide requested information for completion of a transaction.
6. Non-Fungible Tokens
What it means to own a Creator NFT
You may have the opportunity to purchase non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, distributed by the Creators on our Site (each, a “Creator NFT”). The Site currently supports the purchase of Creator NFTs only with Creator Coin. All NFTs minted and distributed through our Site and purchased or received by you are subject to the license rights described in this section, and you agree that any Creator NFT that you purchase or receive are subject to these license terms.
When you own a Creator NFT, you own a Digital Asset that is associated with a Creator’s creation. These creations may be a piece of art, a video or audio clip, a digital image, or any other work (the “Work”). You can show off the Work associated with your Creator NFT, and your past ownership of the Creator NFT will be associated with that Work even after you transfer or sell the Creator NFT, as part of the permanent ledger of ownership that will follow that Digital Asset. However, it is important for you to understand that your ownership of the Creator NFT does not give you any ownership in the intellectual property underlying the Creator’s actual Work that is associated with the Creator NFT, outside of the limited license to use the Work that is granted to you pursuant to these Terms. Similar to the way you may own a book, that book is yours to keep and show off, but you don’t own the copyright to the book itself, and you can’t reprint it and sell the copies for profit. Each Creator reserves all exclusive copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights associated with their Work, including but not limited to the right to reproduce, to prepare derivative works, to display, to perform, and to distribute the Work.
Your rights in the Creator NFT that you own
If you own a Creator NFT, you own the Creator NFT outright until you sell, transfer or otherwise pass ownership of your Creator NFT to another party.
You also hold a limited license to display the Work associated with the Creator NFT, or perform the Work in the case of audiovisual Works. This license includes, but is not limited to, your right to display or perform the Work privately or publicly for the following purposes (i) non-commercial promotion, sharing or publicizing of your purchase, ownership, or interest in the Creator NFT associated with the Work; or (ii) selling or promoting the sale of, trading, or transferring the Creator NFT associated with the Work.
This limited license and your rights granted pursuant to the license end immediately upon your sale, transfer, or other dispossession of the Creator NFT.
The rights that you do not get through the Creator NFT that you own
The ownership of a Creator NFT does not provide the following rights:
- You do not have the right to make commercial use of the Work associated with the Creator NFT including, for example, by selling copies of the Work, selling access to the Work, developing and selling derivative works, including merchandise, that embody the Work, including it within other media that you sell or promote commercially, or otherwise commercially exploiting, or allowing others to commercially exploit, the Work in any manner. Again, the ownership of the Creator NFT only relates to the NFT, and not the underlying Work.
- You do not have the right to (i) destroy, mutilate, or otherwise modify or depict the Work in a way that could have a negative effect on the Creator’s reputation; (ii) advertise or promote any third party product or service with the Work; (iii) use or display the Work in a manner that associates it with hate speech, racism, intolerance, violence, cruelty, or anything else that could put the Work or the Creator in a negative light or infringe upon the rights of others; (iv) attempt to trademark, copyright, or otherwise acquire intellectual property rights in or to the Work; (v) tokenize or mint a cryptographic token or other Digital Asset representing the Work; or (vi) misrepresent the creator of the Work, including by claiming that you created it if you did not.
If you earn, buy and otherwise receive Digital Assets on the Site, such Digital Assets are owned by you. Rally will record your ownership of these Digital Assets in your account for your benefit, and Rally will have no title or ownership rights over such Digital Assets. As the owner of the Digital Assets, you will bear all risk of loss with respect to the Digital Assets. Rally will have no liability for any change or fluctuation in the value of any Digital Assets.
You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for deciding on the suitability, value, and appropriateness of Digital Asset ownership for yourself, and that Rally does not give advice or recommendations regarding purchasing Digital Assets. You agree and understand that you access and use the Site at your own risk, and that when you purchase any Digital Assets on the Site, such purchase is made of digital goods that you have made the decision to purchase on your own accord.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ONCE PURCHASED, THERE ARE NO REFUNDS ON ANY DIGITAL ASSETS, INCLUDING CREATOR COIN AND CREATOR NFTS. ALL COMPLETED TRANSACTIONS ARE FINAL.
8. Prohibited Uses of the Site
You agree you will not (and will not cause or encourage any third party to) use the Site, products and services in any of the following ways:

With the exception of disputes that qualify for small claims court and disputes involving Rally’s intellectual property, you and Rally agree that if there is any dispute between you and the Rally Parties arising from or relating to these Terms and their interpretation or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Terms, including disputes about the validity, scope or enforceability of this agreement to arbitration (collectively, “Covered Disputes”), both parties shall first attempt in good faith to settle any Covered Dispute by providing written notice to the other party describing the facts and circumstances of the Covered Dispute and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the Covered Dispute. Both you and Rally agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent that must be satisfied before initiating any litigation or filing any claim against the other party.
We will provide such notice by mail or e-mail using the contact information on file with us and you must provide such notice by mail to Rally Network, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, P.O. Box 191373, San Francisco, CA 94119.
If any Covered Dispute cannot be resolved by the above dispute resolution procedure, such Covered Dispute will be settled by binding arbitration in the U.S. State of California administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with its International Arbitration Rules in effect on the date thereof.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. If, however, you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be cost-prohibitive for you as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of the filing, administration and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive for you. If the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration are frivolous, you agree to reimburse us for all fees associated with the arbitration that we paid on your behalf, which you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules.
A single arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language. The arbitrator will have the power to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity and any award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The arbitrator will not, however, have the power to award punitive or exemplary damages, the right to which each party hereby waives. The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and the failure to do so will be deemed an excess of arbitral authority and grounds for judicial review. The arbitrator’s decision must be with written explanation and remain confidential.
We and you agree that any Covered Dispute will be submitted to arbitration on an individual basis only. Neither we nor you are entitled to arbitrate any Covered Dispute as a class or representative action and the arbitrator will have no authority to proceed on a class or representative basis.
If any provision of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced (but in no case will there be a class or representative arbitration). Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, notice on any claim arising from or related to these Terms must be made within one (1) year after such claim arose or be forever barred. For purposes of this Section, these Terms and related transactions will be subject to and governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
By agreeing to these Terms, you explicitly agree that any claims or actions that you may otherwise have against us under the laws of any jurisdiction outside the United States are hereby waived, including without limitation, any claims or actions under the laws of your own country, and that your sole location and applicable law for any dispute is in the United States according to the terms of this Section.
