Magic Store Terms & Conditions

These terms of use, together with any other agreements or terms incorporated by reference, including our Privacy Policy (available at (the "Terms") set forth the basis on which you are permitted to access and use the website located at (the “Site”), and associated services provided by Magic Square Int. Ltd. ("we", “us”, or the “Company”), through the Site (the “Services”), which Services, for the avoidance of doubt, do not include any third party services made available through the Site, including, without limitation, the dApps (as defined below).
These Terms constitute a binding and enforceable legal contract between Company and You. By using the Services, you agree to these Terms. If you do not agree to any of the provisions set out in these Terms, you should not use the Site or any of the Services, or any of the dApps made available thereon. If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a company or another legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these Terms, in which case the term "You" will refer to such entity and its affiliates. If the legal entity that you represent does not agree with these Terms, you may not accept these Terms or use the Services.

1. The Services

The Services are a platform for users to distribute, explore, review and download decentralized applications (dApps). The Services further provide users with the opportunity to learn more about crypto and about decentralized technology, to engage in various community activities and to perform quests within participating dApps as part of the Company’s ‘use to earn’ model. In some instances, Users may be rewarded for performing certain activities on the Site, in the Company’s native token, $SQR, or third-party tokens (the “Tokens”). Users who stake a certain minimum amount of Tokens, may opt to join the Magic DAO, and influence certain governance-related aspects of the Site and Services.
Depending on how you choose to use the Site and Services, you may also be referred to herein as a "Developer" or "User". A “Developer” refers to an individual or a company who submitted a dApp to the Site, to be vetted by the Company and validated by the eligible Users who’ve obtained a certain amount of karma (as defined below), ultimately for the dApp to be listed on and distributed through the Site. A “User” refers to any other individual or company who visits the Site and is not a Developer.
In order to gain access to most of the Services made available through the Site, you will be prompted to open a MagicID. This will involve, inter alia, connecting a supported wallet and verifying your email and social accounts. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your MagicID, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the MagicID. You may not describe or assign content to your MagicID in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others, and Company may change or remove any description or keyword that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise damaging or likely to cause damage to Company. You must immediately notify the Company of any unauthorized uses of your MagicID or any other breaches of security.
Company will not be liable for any acts or omissions by You, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions. By creating a MagicID, you also consent to receive electronic communications from the Company (e.g., via email or by posting notices to the Site). These communications may include notices about your MagicID (e.g., password changes and other transactional information) and are part of your relationship with us. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we may send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including, but not limited to, that such communications be in writing. You should maintain copies of electronic communications from us. We may also send you promotional communications via email, including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers, surveys, and other news and information we think will be of interest to you. You may opt-out of receiving these promotional emails at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions provided therein.

2. Dapp Submission

If you are a Developer, you may submit an application to the Company for listing your dApp and any associated content, graphics, or functions (the “dApp”) on the Site. In the event the Company determines that the dApp is appropriate, you will be prompted to open a MagicID and your dApp will be listed and made public on the Site. Please note that initially, your dApp will be marked as “under validation” for an initial fourteen (14) day period. During this validation period, eligible Users may vote on whether they think the dApp should be listed. Dapps with a minimum validation rating of 3 pts and up, are subsequently listed on the Site as “validated”.
Acceptance and ranking of dApps is determined solely by those eligible Users of the Site who have reached validation status, at their collective discretion. The ranking is for informational purposes only.
You acknowledge that a “validated” dApp is a title which is granted to dApps as a result of a community voting process in which eligible Users of the Site who have reached validation status may review and vote on the status of dApps which Developers submit for review through the Site. A stamp of validation and the associated ranking (3-5) should not be deemed as Company or anyone on its behalf having performed a comprehensive legal, technical or any other review of the dApp and Company assumes no liability or responsibility whatsoever with any dApps made available through the Site, whether validated or not.
If Developer notices any discrepancy between the information about its dApp and the description thereof placed on the Site, please immediately notify the Company at: [email protected].
The Company retains the right, but not the obligation, to edit, move or remove any dApp if such dApp or Developer is deemed by the Company to violate these Terms or applicable law. The Company will have no liability for editing, moving, removing, or continuing to permit the display of any dApp. If a certain dApp under the view of the Company seems to be inappropriate, the Company also reserves the right not to post or publish any dApp, and to delete, remove or edit any dApp, at any time in its sole discretion without notice or liability.

3. Use of data

Company may collect data relating to Your use of the Site and Services ("User Data"), and You hereby grant the Company permission to collect User Data available on the Site and to use such User Data to improve the Site performance and functionality and improve services and support to Company users and for other business purposes including monitoring, statistical data gathering, diagnostics, comparative analyses, complementary solutions usage, security and software integrity assurance, remote control and support and click performance tracking. Company may use various analytics tools in performing the above. Company does not provide an opt-out option from the use of such analytics tools and therefore You should refrain from creating a MagicID if You do not agree to the use of analytics tools in connection with the User Data. Where applicable, User Data collected by Company will be shared with You or any service provider who may provide You with supplementary services in connection with the Services, including the Developers. Company may further use User Data as set forth in its privacy policy referenced above.

Rewards are granted in the form of ‘karma’ points - our internal rewards mechanism which automatically converts into Tokens, after seven (7) days, subject to certain internal authorizations and procedures (“karma”). Each User’s karma points are visible to other users on the site. Special offers may be fulfilled by the Company and/or Developers, as the case may be. If fulfilled by Developers, such offers shall be subject to the separate terms and conditions of the Developer and the Company bears no liability or responsibility with respect thereto.
