Welcome to the NFT500 Museum, owned and operated by Revolution Blockchain, LLC d/b/a NFT500 (“NFT500,” “we,” “us” or “our”). By accessing, browsing or using www.nft500.com, Affiliate websites, applications, products, and online and/or mobile services, and products (collectively, “Services”) in any way, you (“you” or “your”) acknowledge, accept, and agree to these Terms of Service (“Terms”), without limitation. These Terms constitute a legally binding agreement ("Agreement") between you and NFT500 and govern your access to and use of our Services. NFT500 may revise these Terms at any time, without notice.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS OR USE OUR SERVICES.
WE WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THE TERMS INCLUDE AN ARBITRATION AGREEMENT WHICH WILL, WITH LIMITED EXCEPTIONS, REQUIRE DISPUTES BETWEEN US TO BE SUBMITTED TO BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION. ACCORDINGLY, YOU WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO PURSUE CLAIMS AND SEEK RELIEF AGAINST US ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING, AND YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SEEK RELIEF IN A COURT OF LAW AND TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL ON YOUR CLAIMS. PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE “Dispute Resolution; Arbitration & Waiver of Certain Rights, Including Class Actions” SECTION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
In these Terms:
“Affiliate” means with respect to any entity, any other entity that now or in the future, directly or indirectly controls, is controlled with or by or is under common control with such entity. For purposes of the foregoing, “control” means, with respect to:

9. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration Agreement & Waiver of Certain Rights, Including Class Actions
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA (AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION) RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR NFT500 WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. If a dispute arises between you and NFT500, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by reaching out to us at info@NFT500.com.
9.1 You Agree to Waive a Jury Trial
YOU AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTES BETWEEN US THROUGH BINDING AND FINAL ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF THROUGH COURT PROCEEDINGS. YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO ANY JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM. All controversies, claims, counterclaims, or other disputes arising between you and NFT500 arising from or relating to these Terms, our Services, NFT500 Art or NFT500 NFTs shall be submitted for binding arbitration under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA Rules”). The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, without limitation, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration or by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities, regulatory authorities, or other governmental agencies.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude you or NFT500 from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. You and NFT500 may also bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, you and NFT500 retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with these Terms, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these Terms.
9.2 Arbitration Costs
If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, NFT500 will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.
9.3 Class Action Waiver
YOU MAY NOT ACT AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, NOR PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS MEMBER OF ANY CLASS CLAIMANTS WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM. CLAIMS MAY NOT BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS. You may only bring individual claims, and the arbitrator may only decide individual claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated.
10. Changes to this Agreement; Changes to the Services
10.1 Our business changes with time, and these Terms will change also. We reserve the right to change these Terms, including the right to change, modify, add or remove any part of these Terms, without prior notice, at any time in our sole discretion. When NFT500 makes any changes, we will make the updated Agreement available on this website and in the associated link in the app and update the "Last Updated" date at the beginning of the Agreement accordingly. Please check frequently for changes. Any changes to this Agreement will apply on the date they are made. By way of example, your continued access to or use of the Services, NFT500 Art or any NFT500 NFTs after the Agreement has been updated is conditioned upon and constitutes your binding acceptance of the updates.
10.2 Our Services are updated frequently, and their form and functionality may change without notice. We reserve the right to change, modify, add, remove, suspend or discontinue the Services (including the appearance, design, functionality, and all other aspects of any and all of our Services), in whole or in part, temporarily or permanently, with or without notice, at any time in our sole discretion.
10.3 NFT500 will not be liable to you or any third party for any damages or losses of any kind resulting directly or indirectly from any changes made by us to our Terms or Services, including any loss of business or the ability to use any product or aspect of the Services or Content.
You will release, defend, indemnify, and hold NFT500 Parties harmless from any claims, actions, suits, losses, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) arising from or relating to this Agreement, the Services, the NFT500 Art or NFT500 NFTs, whether brought by you or a third party. This indemnity will be applicable regardless of the willful misconduct, deliberate default, gross negligence or negligence of any party, including any indemnitee. NFT500 reserves the right to control the defense of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate with our defense of the claims.
You are solely responsible for paying any and all sales, use, value-added and other taxes, duties, and assessments now or hereafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority associated with your collection, use or possession of NFT500 NFTs. You are responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply due to your collection, use or possession of an NFT500 NFT, and you are responsible for reporting and remitting the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority.
13. Entire Agreement; Miscellaneous; Survival
These Terms are the entire agreement between you and NFT500, and supersede any prior understandings or agreements (written or oral) with respect to the Services. If any portion of these Terms are held to be unenforceable, the unenforceable portion will be construed in accordance with applicable law to the greatest extent possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining terms and conditions contained herein shall remain in full force and effect. NFT500's failure to insist on or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of any provision, right or remedy.
These Terms will be binding on your successors and assigns, but you are not allowed to assign, transfer or sublicense these Terms or any right or obligation under these Terms without NFT500’s express prior written consent. These Terms, and all rights granted to or reserved by us under these Terms, will benefit and be enforceable by our successors and assigns.
To the extent not expressly set forth herein, there are no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.
The obligations in this Agreement that are intended by their terms to survive the suspension, discontinuation or termination of these Services shall so survive, including Sections 1-9, and 11-13.
