If the redeemer has any remaining payments to pay to ClubRare, ClubRare sends an email to the redeemer, which includes the date window to be redeemed with the specified fees and the acceptable payment method (PayPal, Crypto, credit card, etc.) in use by ClubRare at that time. If you pay the required amount within the date window and send the token back to ClubRare or its agent, ClubRare can either ship the product to the redeemer or pick-up if the ClubRare specifies that Pick-up is possible. The product will arrive with an appraisal report.
If the redeemer does not have any remaining payments to ClubRare, after completing the KYC, if the token itself is sent to the address provided by ClubRare, ClubRare can ship the goods to the redeemer or pick-up if ClubRare states that Pick-up is possible.

VHL established the ClubRare DAO to foster community among the artists, collectors, traders, and other users of the ClubRare Platform (the “ClubRare Community”) and provide them with a voice in how the ClubRare Platform is run, maintained, marketed, improved, and otherwise governed (“Governance Decisions”).
AGOV is intended to be utilized by the ClubRare Community to participate in the AGOV DAO, including voting on proposed Governance Decisions (“Governance Proposals”). AGOV may from time to time be given additional uses as determined by VHL (in non-binding consultation with the AGOV DAO) (during the Signaling Era (as defined below)) or by the AGOV DAO alone (during the Autonomous Era (as defined below)).
The ClubRare DAO is intended to increase its autonomy and responsibility for influencing Governance Decisions over time. The anticipated evolution of the ClubRare DAO will be divided into two main periods or ‘eras’:
(a) Signaling Era. The “Signaling Era” began on the date AGOV was first distributed to the ClubRare Community and currently remains ongoing. During the Signaling Era, VHL will retain ultimate operational and governance authority over the ClubRare Platform while consulting in its discretion with the AGOV DAO regarding potential Governance Decisions (expressed as Governance Proposals made by VHL to the AGOV DAO) expected to have material directly impacts on the interests of the ClubRare Community. During the Signaling Era, the actions and determinations of the AGOV DAO will be treated as non-binding, advisory signals to VHL regarding the will and interests of the ClubRare Community, but will not be obligated to support or comply with the actions and determinations of the AGOV DAO. Nevertheless, VHL currently anticipates abiding by the AGOV DAO’s majority-supported determinations regarding Governance Proposals that are made by VHL during the Signaling Era, provided that the resulting Governance Decisions would not reasonably be expected to result in a violation of applicable legal requirement or have a material adverse impact on the ClubRare Platform or VHL. VHL will in good faith, consider the merits of any such Governance Proposal that receives majority support of the AGOV DAO during the Signaling Era, but VHL cannot currently anticipate the likelihood that VHL will choose to support or give effect to such independent Governance Proposals.
(b) Autonomous Era. During the “Autonomous Era,” to the maximum extent reasonably practicable, except as may be limited by applicable legal requirements, the AGOV DAO will have exclusive ultimate authority to make Governance Decisions, including the determination of the smart contracts utilized in the ClubRare DEX System, the amount and types of fees to be charged to users of the ClubRare Platform and the use of such fees for funding the operation and maintenance by VHL of the ClubRare Apps or the operation and maintenance by other entities or persons of alternative applications for interacting with the ClubRare DEX System. The transition to the "Autonomous Era" will occur at a time determined at the sole discretion of VHL, following the confirmation of the AGOV DAO that it is ready to assume full responsibility for future governance decisions. Currently, VHL expects that at least the following technologies, measures, conditions, and agreements should be initialized and tested before the era of autonomy begins.
VHL shall not be required or obligated to distribute any AGOV (out of the AirDropSupply, MiningSupply, or otherwise) to, or honor the voting or other rights of AGOV held by, any person who, as determined in the sole and absolute discretion of VHL, directly or indirectly, in connection with the use of the ClubRare Platform, ClubRare Apps, ClubRare DEX System, AGOV DAO, AGOV or any transactions involving NFTs or Collectibles, has violated these Terms. Examples of disqualifying events include engaging in front- running,” “wash trading,” “pump and dump trading,” “ramping,” “cornering” or other fraudulent, deceptive, or manipulative trading activities, or engaging in or facilitating ICOs or other financing transactions, for the purpose of increasing such user’s AGOV rewards or otherwise.

Each User acknowledges and agrees that such technologies are novel, experimental, and speculative, and that therefore there is significant uncertainty regarding the operation and effects and risks thereof and the application of existing law thereto.
(b) Certain Risks of Blockchain Technologies. The technology utilized in delivering the Offerings depends on public peer-to-peer networks such as Ethereum that are not under the control or influence of VHL and are subject to many risks and uncertainties. Such technologies include the ClubRare DEX System, which VHL may have limited or no ability to change, other than ceasing to support certain “smart contracts” and adding support for new “smart contracts.” Users are solely responsible for the safekeeping of the private key associated with the blockchain address used to participate in the Offerings. VHL will not be able to restore or issue any refund in respect of any Collectibles or AGOV due to lost private keys. If a User is not able to spend or use a Collectible or AGOV due to loss or theft of the corresponding private key or otherwise, a User will be unable to exercise their rights with respect to such Collectible or AGOV.
(c) Certain Risks of Smart Contract Technology. Collectibles, AGOV, and other digital assets relevant to the ClubRare Platform depend on the ClubRare DEX System or other smart contracts deployed to Ethereum or Klaytn, some of which may be coded or deployed by persons other than VHL. Once deployed to Ethereum, the code of smart contracts, including the ClubRare DEX System, cannot be modified. In the event that the ClubRare DEX System or other smart contracts are adversely affected by malfunctions, bugs, defects, malfunctions, hacking, theft, attacks, negligent coding or design choices, or changes to the protocol rules of Ethereum or Klaytn, Users may be exposed to a risk of total loss and forfeiture of all Collectibles, AGOV and other relevant digital assets. VHL assumes no liability or responsibility for any of the foregoing matters, except as otherwise expressly provided by these Terms or required by applicable law.
(d) Asset Prices. The fiat-denominated prices and value in public markets of assets such as ETH, NFTs, Collectibles, and AGOV have historically been subject to dramatic fluctuations and are highly volatile. As relatively new products and technologies, blockchain-based assets are not widely accepted as a means of payment for goods and services. A significant portion of demand for these assets is generated by speculators and investors seeking to profit from the short- or long-term holding of blockchain assets. The market value of any ETH, KLAY, NFT, Collectible, or AGOV may decline below the price for which a User acquires such asset through the ClubRare Platform or on any other platform. User acknowledges and agrees that the costs and speeds of transacting with cryptographic and blockchain-based systems such as Ethereum are variable and may increase or decrease dramatically at any time, resulting in a prolonged inability to access or use any ETH, KLAY, NFTs, Collectibles, AGOV or other digital assets associated with the ClubRare Platform.
(e) Regulatory Uncertainty. Blockchain technologies and digital assets are subject to many legal and regulatory uncertainties, and the ClubRare Platform, NFTs, Collectibles, and AGOV could be adversely impacted by one or more regulatory or legal inquiries, actions, suits, investigations, claims, fines or judgments, which could impede or limit the ability of User to continue the use and enjoyment of such assets and technologies.
(f) Cryptography Risks. Cryptography is a progressing field. Advances in code cracking or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers may present risks to Ethereum, the ClubRare Platform, NFTs, Collectibles and AGOV, including the theft, loss, or inaccessibility thereof.
(g) Fork Handling. Ethereum, Klaytn, the ClubRare DEX System, the NFTs, the Collectibles, and AGOV may be subject to “forks.” Forks occur when some or all persons running the software clients for a particular blockchain system adopt a new client or a new version of an existing client that: (i) changes the protocol rules in a backward-compatible or a backward-incompatible manner that affects which transactions can be added into later blocks, how later blocks are added to the blockchain, or other matters relating to the future operation of the protocol; or (ii) reorganizes or changes past blocks to alter the history of the blockchain. Some forks are “contentious” and thus may result in two or more persistent alternative versions of the protocol or blockchain, either of which may be viewed as or claimed to be the legitimate or genuine continuation of the original. VHL may not be able to anticipate, control or influence the occurrence or outcome of forks, and does not assume any risk, liability, or obligation in connection therewith. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, VHL does not assume any responsibility to notify a User of pending, threatened, or completed forks. VHL will respond to any forks as VHL determines in its sole and absolute discretion, and VHL shall not have any duty or obligation or liability to a User if such response (or lack of such response) acts to a User detriment. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, VHL’s possible and permissible responses to a fork may include: (i) honoring the ClubRare DEX System, Collectibles, NFTs, and AGOV on both chains; (ii) honoring the ClubRare DEX System, Collectibles, NFTs and AGOV on only one of the chains; (iii) honoring the ClubRare DEX System, Collectibles, NFTs and AGOV in different respects or to a different extent on both chains; or (iv) any other response or policy or procedure, as determined by VHL in its sole and absolute discretion. VHL reserves the right only to allow one NFT to be associated with the relevant metadata forming the Collectible, notwithstanding that copies of such NFT may exist on both chains following a fork. A User assumes full responsibility to independently remain apprised of and informed about possible forks and to manage a User's own interests in connection therewith.
(h) Required Third-Party Software Dependencies. The ClubRare DEX system and other smart contracts deployed on Ethereum can be accessed or interacted with directly via Ethereum nodes (e.g. Infura) or via a compatible Ethereum “wallet” application (e.g. web browser plugin Metamask) or Klaytn. The ClubRare DEX system and other smart contracts deployed on the public software utility can be accessed either directly through Klaytn nodes (e.g. Cypress) or indirectly through compatible Klaytn “wallet” applications (e.g. Kaikas) that interact with it. Although you do not need to use the ClubRare app to interact with the ClubRare DEX system, the ClubRare app provides a convenient and user-friendly way to read and display data (including collectible metadata) from the ClubRare DEX system and generate compatible standard transactional messages. ClubRare DEX System As the ClubRare platform does not provide any Ethereum wallet software or Ethereum nodes, Klaytn wallet software or Klaytn nodes, such software constitutes essential third-party or user dependencies, without which the ClubRare platform cannot be utilized, and NFTs, collectibles, AGOV, and other related digital assets may not be traded or used. Additionally, the Collectible Descriptor that defines the art and text associated with the Collectible must be stored outside of Ethereum or Klaytn. Collectibles created by ClubRare have descriptors stored in IPFS systems through IPFS nodes operated by VHL or VHL's partners, but VHL cannot guarantee the continued operation of these IPFS nodes or the data integrity and persistence of IPFS.
8.10. Legal Limitations on Disclaimers. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of certain liabilities and damages. Accordingly, some of the disclaimers and limitations set forth in these Terms may not apply in full to specific Users. The disclaimers and limitations of liability provided in these terms shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
8.11. Officers, Directors, Etc. All provisions of these Terms which disclaim or limit obligations or liabilities of VHL shall also apply, mutatis mutandis, to the officers, directors, members, employees, independent contractors, agents, stockholders, debtholders, and affiliates of VHL.
8.12. Indemnification. Each User shall defend, indemnify, compensate, reimburse and hold harmless VHL (and each of its officers, directors, members, employees, agents, and affiliates) from any claim, demand, action, damage, loss, cost, or expense, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out or relating to (a) User’s use of, or conduct in connection with, the Offerings; (b) User’s violation of these Terms or any other applicable policy or contract of VHL; or (c) your violation of any rights of any other person or entity.
