The user may also register as an Artist or Creator who will be able to create reward campaigns or collections, as well as sell, list and Mint items.
Traditional Crowdfunding Pledges for Projects and Collections
Traditional Crowdfunding Is a form of non-equity and non-debt crowdfunding. It empowers the “artist” to create reward crowdfunding campaigns to sell their products on a pre-sales basis, in which a backers or collector pays for the traditional art form before it is actually produced, such as buying a concert ticket. For the backer or collector, art reward crowdfunding is a way to acquire a work of art before it has been actually realised, at an economised price. Backers and collectors will also benefit by obtaining access to works of art before they are actually in the market. For the creator it represents a way to know exactly how many units he will have to produce, thus being able to plan ahead for time and materials required for the project. Artists and creators may combine different rewards in order to make the campaign more attractive for backers and collectors.
Contributions: Sums of money contributed by the Collector or Backer to the Creator or Artist, through Snowmarkets, for the development of projects or collections. Each individual contribution will be rewarded with Digital or Non-Digital Assets.
Pledges: Contributions for crowdfunding of projects and collections will initially be taken as “pledges”, where they are taken as the intention of contributing on a project, and then actually collecting such payments at the moment the project is completed.
D.A.B. Art Forms (or Digital Asset Backed Art Forms): Digital Asset Backed Art is an intermediate step between Traditional Art and Digital Art. At Snowmarkets, D.A.B. Art represents when a traditional art form is backed by digital art, working together as an ensemble, rather than being independent forms of art. As the Traditional Art form is created by the artist, Snowmarkets will create an underlying Digital Asset that shall be transferred to the collector or backer as he acquires the Traditional Art form. Snowmarkets uses Metamask wallet and OpenSea to mint the NFT for D.A.B. Artworks. It is the collectors responsibility to verify the wallet address is correct. Incorrect wallet address data may result in a permanent loss of the assets. The token will be delivered at the time the backer pledges to the campaign, and the funds are collected by Snowmarkets. With D.A.B. Art, collectors or backers aim to maintain an everlasting relationship with the artist.
The Creator or Artist must upload the Project or Collection onto Snowmarkets, where he must:
name the Project, providing a short summary of it; describe the Project in detail including sketches, images, prototypes, etc. to support the idea; define category determine the Funding Period (maximum of 60 days); list Rewards supply a video of the presentation and visual support material.
Once the Project is submitted, the type of fundraising, the economic goal, the funding period and the Rewards already chosen by a Backer may not be modified.
Creation of an Account in an Authorised Electronic Payment System:
Once the Project is submitted and it is checked that it complies with the Project requirements and guidelines, Contributions will be collected during the Project’s Funding Period in any of the following electronic payment systems: PayPal and Stripe.
Creator or Artist must create or have an account in PayPal under its own name, which should be verified according to PayPal’s Terms and Conditions, Commissions and other regulations stated by the Payment Provider (published in their website: www.paypal.com). The Creator upon submission of the Project must provide this account to Snowmarkets. This account will be used as a “secondary” account associated to the “primary” account managed by Snowmarkets under the “Pre-Approved Delayed Chained Payments” model. In this model, all Contributions will be considered as “pledges”, and the Collector or Backer debit/credit card will be “pre-approved” in case they pass the validation process done by PayPal. However, they will only be charged for the full Contribution amount once the Funding Period has been reached.
Nevertheless, even if the Contributions have been accredited, prior commission withdrawal, the Creator will not have the funds available until they are released by the “primary” account.
Delivery of Rewards: The Creator will offer Rewards, such as Digital or Non-Digital Assets, to the Collectors or Backers that contribute to his Project or Collection. These Rewards must comply with all applicable laws in each jurisdiction and the Terms of Service. The deadline for the delivery of Rewards must be met as described in each Project (Ie. One week after the Funding Period is over, plus shipping). The Rewards handed out to the Collector or Backer by the Creators must be exactly as described in the Project in their most relevant characteristics and conditions. The Creator or Artist is solely responsible for the delivery of the Traditional Form or Art, Rewards in Non- Digital forms. Snowmarkets will be responsible for the delivery of Digital Assets, that will be delivered to the Backer or Collector Metamask Wallet address. Snowmarkets is not responsible for the loss of Digital Assets given there is an error in the Backer or Collectors Wallet address.
In the case of PayPal, the amounts will be debited from the card provided by the Backer at the moment the Contribution becomes effective. In some cases may need extra validations from the Backer imposed by the Payment Provider which the Backer must carry out in 3 to 10 business days accordingly. If the Backer follows these instructions, the charge will be processed, otherwise they will release the funds.
In the case of PayPal, they will operate under the method “Pre-Approved Delayed Chained Payments”, according to which the effective Contributions initially will only be approved as “pledges”, by means of the validation of the Collector or Backer’ credit cards, and will only be charged themselves, if so ordered by the Company , once the corresponding funding period is over.
Collection Contributions by the Creator or Artist for Traditional Crowdfunding: Once the corresponding Funding Period is complete, a period of 5 days begins during which the verification and checking of payments are processed (the “Period of Processing Payments”), and attempts are made to fix any inconvenience produced with the charge of Contributions. In particular, in the case of PayPal accounts, according to the method of simply pre-approving the Contributions it is possible that a certain percentage of the pledges are not effective at the moment of executing the charge. For this and other cases, the Period of Processing Payments functions as a grace period for the Creators or Artists, during which they can continue to receive Contributions.
Purpose of the Funds Raised: The Creator or Artist declares, warrants and accepts that the Contributions raised through the Website can only be used to accomplish the purposes described in the Project or Collection published on Snowmarkets and for no other purposes or Project or Collection.
Responsibility of Creator: The Creator is and will be the only and exclusive individual accountable for the compliance with all tax requirements applicable to Contributions raised and Rewards given, as well as for all requirements in existing labour legislation concerning his self employment, or any other type of business organisation chosen by him, and concerning his employees and suppliers as well. The Creator agrees to release and indemnify Snowmarkets for any responsibility resulting from tax-related or labour claims related to the Contributions collected for the Project or to Rewards handed out. In case of non compliance with any obligation by the Creator, he will be accountable to the Collector or Backer, and Snowmarkets.
Once the Period of Processing Payments expires, a period of 20 (twenty) business days begins during which the crediting of the Contributions of the Backer or Collector accounts are processed (the “Period of Accreditation of Payments”), and the commissions for processing the payments by credit cards, the prevailing commissions of selected means of payments, and the transfer charges.
Once the Period of Accreditation of Payments ends, Snowmarkets will order the corresponding Payment Provider to release the funds credited in favour of the Creator or Artist, as established in the following:PayPal: PayPal is notified that from this time the Creator has free availability of the funds credited to the PayPal account indicated by the Creator at the moment of publishing their project. Additionally, Snowmarkets will send an email to the address registered by the Creator, the Project Summary with a breakdown of the total collected according to the Payment Providers in the corresponding currencies, the discount and costs of the commissions and VAT. In the case that, once the Period of Processing Payments is complete, there is any issue with the delivery of the Digital or Non-Digital Asset, Snowmarkets will instruct the Payment Provider selected for the refund in a period of no more than 15 (fifteen) business days after the end of the Collection Period, and through the same payment method originally used: The amount will be refunded to the credit card as account credit (in some cases of PayPal, there will be no return because there was no original charge executed, but only the pre-approval). Refunds, ChargeBacks, Rejected Charges: With the assumption that some of the Collector or Backer cancel, annul, Chargeback, discontinue, revise and/or execute some other claim, of the Contributions made for the project, they should be made according to the applicable payment system. In case the funds don’t exist in this account, because they have already been withdrawn by the Creator, the Backer should reclaim the funds directly from the Creator. Withdrawal of an Already Submitted Project: In case the Creator of an already submitted Project or collection decides to give up its development for any reason, he will be able to cancel the Fundraising. In such a situation, the Creator must inform his decision to the following email address; firstname.lastname@example.org. No fee will be charged to the Creator and the Collector or Backer will receive a refund of the Contributions through the same payment method used before. In case the Creator has already received the Contributions raised for his Project, he will only be allowed to terminate the Project when he has totally refunded all Contributions to Collector or Backer, through the same payment method used before. In case of non-compliance, the Backer has the right to claim the Creator directly for a refund of the amount of the Collaboration. Cancellation of a Contribution to a Project by a Creator: The Creator has the right to ask for the cancellation and refund of a Contribution made by any Backer. In such a case, the Company will proceed to make the refund according to the procedures corresponding to the method used to make the Contribution. The Creator will be the sole responsible for that decision and in case the Backer has any claim, doubt or suggestion, he must contact the Creator directly. Snowmarkets reserves the right to cancel a previously accepted Project when the Creator does not comply with any of the conditions laid down in these Particular Terms of Service. This cancellation may take place even if the Project has already been published on the Website. The Creator or Artist Must Publish a List of the Rewards Associated to the Collector or Backer’ Contributions on the Website: The Contributions associated to Rewards must be expressed in the project or collections currency. Additionally, Snowmarkets cannot guarantee the complete reception of the Contribution made by a Backer since it might happen that the chosen credit card is rejected and the payment provider blocks the payment to require additional validations. The Backer accepts and understands that the transaction process is performed through third-party platforms and that their actions and uses are regulated by their own conditions, accepted by the Backer when using this method to make the Contribution. Snowmarkets will not be liable for the use a Creator makes of the Contributions raised once the economic goal is met during the Fundraising Period. The development of the Project will be the sole responsibility of the Creator, once the Contributions made by Collector or Backer are received. In case of non-compliance, the Creator will be liable to the Collector or Backer. The Creator represents and warrants that the Projects he publishes on the Website will only be original works, created by him, and that in no way they are copies or reproductions that violate intellectual property rights of third parties. Snowmarkets will be able to terminate the Accounts of Registered Users that violate any intellectual property right of third parties. If Snowmarkets becomes aware of such a violation of rights, they will delete the illegal material in compliance with the intellectual and industrial property laws in force. Snowmarkets does not warrant the correct functioning of PayPal, Stripe or any other electronic payment services provider. Additionally, Snowmarkets cannot warrant the complete reception of a Contribution or Pledge made by a Backer since it might happen that the credit card used for the Contribution is cancelled, or requires additional incomplete validations resulting in the cancellation of the transaction. The Creator accepts and understands that the transaction process is performed through third-party platforms and that their actions and uses are regulated by their own conditions. The Creator will be the only responsible for the payment of fees and taxes resulting from the use he makes of the Website, as well as the commissions due to the entities through which the Collector or Backer’ Contributions are processed.

Listing illegally obtained Items may result in your listings being cancelled, your Items being hidden, or your access to the Service being suspended If you have reason to believe that an asset listed on the Service was illegally obtained, please contact us immediately; and Content that is illegal. If you become aware of the creation, listing, or buying of assets in violation of any of the terms specified in this section, please contact us at email@example.com to report it.

IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU HEREBY WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542 IN CONNECTION WITH THE FOREGOING, WHICH STATES: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR." Assumption of Risk Related To Items You acknowledge and agree that: The prices of digital assets are extremely volatile. Fluctuations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the Items, which may also be subject to significant price volatility. We cannot and do not guarantee that any purchasers of Items will not lose money. You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your transactions involving Items. Neither Snowmarkets nor any other Snowmarkets Entity is responsible for determining the taxes that may apply to transactions involving Items. Items exist and can be transferred only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on the blockchain supporting such Items. There are risks associated with using digital currency and digital assets, including but not limited to, the risk of hardware, software and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to your information. The legal and regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is evolving, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Service and the utility of Items. There are risks associated with purchasing user-generated Content, including but not limited to, the risk of purchasing counterfeit assets, mislabeled assets, assets that are vulnerable to metadata decay, assets on smart contracts with bugs, and assets that may become untransferable. Snowmarkets reserves the right to hide collections, contracts, and assets that Snowmarkets suspects or believes may violate these Terms. Items you purchase may become inaccessible on the Service. Under no circumstances shall the inability to access or view your assets on the Service serve as grounds for a claim against Snowmarkets. Snowmarkets has no responsibility for the Items Minted, sold, bought or traded on the Service. Snowmarkets does not investigate and cannot guarantee or warrant the authenticity, originality, uniqueness, marketability, legality or value of any Item created or traded on the Service. For the avoidance of doubt, Snowmarkets shall have no responsibility for any failure of any User to comply with any terms regarding the authenticity, originality, uniqueness, scarcity or other description or characteristics of the Item or Artist IP furnished by or on behalf of that User and displayed by Snowmarkets on the Service. Indemnification To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Snowmarkets and the Snowmarkets Entities from and against all actual or alleged third party claims, damages, awards, judgments, losses, liabilities, obligations, penalties, interest, fees, expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees and expenses) and costs (including, without limitation, court costs, costs of settlement, and costs of or associated with pursuing indemnification and insurance), of every kind and nature whatsoever arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Service, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, matured or unmatured, or suspected or unsuspected, in law or equity, whether in tort, contract or otherwise (collectively, "Claims"), including, but not limited to, damages to property or personal injury, that are caused by, arise out of or are related to (a) your use or misuse of the Service, User Content or Items, including, without limitation, any act or omission involving any third party in connection with the Minting, listing, buying, selling, or trading of any Items hereunder; (b) any feedback you provide; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation of the rights of any third party, including another User; (e) any breach or non-performance of any covenant or agreement made by you; (f) your User Content or the Minting, listing, buying, selling, or trading of any Items; or (g) any off-chain benefits (including the furnishing, or any failure to furnish, or any acts or omissions of or attributable to you or any third party in respect of the same). You agree to promptly notify Snowmarkets of any third-party Claims and cooperate with the Snowmarkets Entities in defending such Claims. You further agree that the Snowmarkets Entities shall have control of the defense or settlement of any third-party Claims.

Nothing in these Terms shall exclude or limit liability of either party for fraud, death or bodily injury caused by negligence, violation of laws, or any other activity that cannot be limited or excluded under the laws applicable to your jurisdiction. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES IN CONTRACTS WITH CONSUMERS, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. DISPUTE RESOLUTION. Please read carefully the following arbitration agreement ("Arbitration Agreement"). It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Snowmarkets and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us. Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute, claim, or request for relief relating in any way to your access or use of the Services, to any products sold or distributed through the Services, or to any aspect of your relationship with Snowmarkets, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (a) you may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if your claims qualify; and (b) you or Snowmarkets may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement. Arbitration Rules and Forum. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your dispute or claim or request for relief to us at email@example.com. The arbitration will be conducted by the ICC International Court of Arbitration®, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgement on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and us. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum's rules, and these Terms (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us. Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND Snowmarkets HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and we are instead electing that all disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review. Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
If any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with us. Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if we make any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by writing us at the following address: email@example.com
We reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify, suspend, or discontinue the Service, or any features or parts thereof, whether temporarily or permanently, at any time with or without notice to you in our sole discretion. These Terms, and your access to and use of the Service, shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the EEA, without regard to any conflict of law rules or principles that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Notwithstanding anything contained in these Terms, we reserve the right, without notice and in our sole discretion, to terminate your right to access or use the Service at any time and for any or no reason, and you acknowledge and agree that we shall have no liability or obligation to you in such event and that you will not be entitled to a refund of any amounts that you have already paid to us, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. If any term, clause or provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, then that term, clause or provision will be severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining part of that term, clause or provision, or any other term, clause or provision of these Terms. Your relationship to Snowmarkets is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without the prior written consent of Snowmarkets. Snowmarkets failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Except as otherwise provided herein, these Terms are intended solely for the benefit of Snowmarkets and you and are not intended to confer third party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.
