You agree that Audacious will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
2. Service Contract between Artists and Clients
You acknowledge and agree that a legally binding contract with another User (the "Service Agreement") is formed when Artist and the Client agree on the terms of services provided by the artists or terms of deliverable content requested by the client, or both. The terms of the Service Agreement include the terms set forth in this section, the engagement terms proposed and accepted on Audacious platform, and any other contractual terms accepted by both the Artist and their Client to the extent such terms do not conflict with the terms in this Agreement, including this Section 3, and do not expand Audacious platform's obligations or restrict Audacious platform's rights under this Agreement. Audacious is not a party to any Service Agreement and the formation of an Service Agreement will not, under any circumstances, create an employment or other service relationship between Audacious and platfrom users. Users do not have authority to enter into written or oral — whether implied or express — contracts on behalf of Audacious platform. Audacious platform's role, beyond enabling connections between Artists and Clients via it's web-based communications platform, is to act as a limited escrow payment collection agent for both parties to facilitate payment for services on behalf of the Client through the Audaciuous platform. In acting as the limited escrow payment collection agent, Audacious assumes no liability or responsibility for any acts or omissions of the users, either within or outside of the Audcaious Platform.
3. Escrow payments and platform usage costs
In order to participate as an Artist or Client on a platform, you must register on the platform by the means of provided third-party providers such as Twitter. The payments between artists and clients are facilitated through use of blockchain technologies and electronic wallet connected to Solana network. To engage in Service Agreements between two parties (Artist and Clients) you must connect to a browser extension that facilitates an electronic wallet which allows you to purchase, store, and engage in transactions using SOL and SPL cryptocurrency. All Transactions on Audacious are in SOL and SPL.
Fees: Audacious charges fees for posting contests or entering into Service Agreement on Audacious platform with artists payable by the client. The fees are broken down into various packages available on the platform during the creation of the contest, project, or escrow payment functionality provided by the Platform. You agree and understand that all fees are transferred, processed, or initiated directly through one or more of the Programs on the Solana blockchain network.
Escrow payment system: Audacious provides escrow payment system by acting as an interface for communication between the platform and Solana programs that process payments in a form of transaction as part of multi-signature wallet frameworks. The escrow payment system provided by the platform acts as multi-signature wallet between artist, clients, and Audacious platform where transactions are approved based on the proposal from either party depending the outcome of the Service Agreement between the artist and the client. In case of dispute, Audacious platform's wallet used in multi-signature contracts is used as a mediator entity to resolve conflicts between artists and clients to the extend outlined in Terms of Service and Service Agreement description between the two parties.
Gas fees: All transactions on the Service, including payments and use of escrow system are facilitated by Programs existing on the Solana network. The Solana network requires the payment of a transaction fee (a “Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the Solana network, and thus every transaction occurring on the Service. The value of the Gas Fee changes, often unpredictably, and is entirely outside of the control of Audacious.
Taxes: You are responsible to pay 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 use of the Service (including, without limitation, any taxes that may become payable as the result of your ownership, transfer, purchase, sale, or creation of any design or artwork).
