5a. Registration by Individual User
A User may request to register Artwork on the Platform, that the User owns by providing the requested information related to the Artwork, such as title, media, dimensions, previously used registry numbers, year created, one or more photographs or video of the Artwork (the “Artwork Information”). If the Artist is not the owner of the Artwork, we may also require the approval of the Artist. We may allow you to update the Artwork Information through the Platform. We may review any such update and may, in our discretion, prevent or reverse any such update.
5b. Registration by Gallery User
Any Artwork registered by a Gallery User on behalf of an Artist is deemed to be consigned by the Artist to the gallery unless and until the Artist notifies ATO Platform that the Artist did not authorize such registration.
5c. Removing a Registered Artwork
We will only remove an Artwork from the Platform if the Artist requests that the Artwork be de-registered and every other person entitled to receive amounts with respect to the Purchase of the Artwork pursuant to the applicable Purchase Agreement, consents in writing to de-register such Artwork.
5d. Verification.
You acknowledge and agree that all Artwork and any additional information provided in connection with an Artwork is subject to review and verification by ATO Platform. We are entitled to rely on your representations under these Terms and on any information that you may provide in connection with an Artwork, but we reserve the right to prevent or cancel a registration, and remove the registered Artwork from the Platform, for any reason, including if we determine, upon review of such information and any title, deed or other searches as we may from time to time conduct, that (a) the Artwork does not constitute an Artwork as defined under these Terms, (b) any Artwork Information provided is inaccurate or does not accurately represent the Artwork, including its content, quality or condition, (c) the Artwork is a forgery, (d) the designated artist is not the creator of the Artwork, (e) the current Owner of such Artwork does not have unencumbered title to the Artwork, (f) the current Owner of such Artwork does not have an unencumbered right to consign or Purchase the Artwork, (g) registration, consignment or Purchase of such Artwork is in violation of any intellectual property right, (h) the registered Artwork is or will be used on the Platform for purposes of money laundering or any other act or omission contrary to applicable law or regulation or (i) registration of such Artwork or any activity in relation to such Artwork is otherwise in breach of these Terms.

ATO Platform disclaims all responsibility for any information or material circumstances that may have changed since ATO Platform conducted its Verification in the event that ATO Platform did so, for the inaccuracy or incompleteness of any Verification that ATO Platform conducts, for ATO Platform’s failure to conduct Verification, and for any information upon which ATO Platform may rely in conducting Verification. ATO PLATFORM WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR REMOVING AN ARTWORK FROM THE SITE FOR ANY REASON OR NO REASON, INCLUDING IF ATO PLATFORM DETERMINES, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION THAT THE ARTWORK DOES NOT MEET ATO PLATFORM’S STANDARDS FOR REGISTRATION ON THE SITE.
5e. Artworks with Physical Certificates.
If an Artwork includes a physical certificate, you will include a complete copy of that certificate with the Artwork’s documentation upon registration. Failure to include a complete copy of a physical certificate with an Artwork upon registration constitutes your representation, warranty and covenant to ATO Platform and to Buyers that no such physical certificate exists, and that, in the event one later appears, it will in no way affect these Terms or any Purchase Agreement. In the event of am irresolvable conflict between any Pre-existing Artwork Terms and the Terms or Purchase Agreement, the Pre-existing Artwork Terms will control solely to the extent they are readily apparent in the documentation for the Artwork as registered on the Platform, and all other terms of the ATO Platform-issued Certificate will continue to apply. Subject to the foregoing, you agree that that the ATO Platform-issued Certificate will be the authoritative document regarding title to, ownership of and authenticity of the corresponding.
5f. Exclusive Use
You agree to exclusively use the Platform for purposes of transferring title to any artwork registered on the Platform. Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that you will not consign or Purchase any such Artwork in any way at any time without using the Platform. You understand that any User that is a Buyer of any such Artwork will also be bound by exclusivity with respect to such Artwork. We will, however, release you or such User from such exclusivity with respect to a given Artwork in the event that we remove such Artwork from the Platform. In addition, we may, in our discretion, release you or such User from the exclusivity with respect to a given Artwork upon request by you or such User in the event of extenuating circumstances, as determined by us on a case-by-case basis in our sole discretion.
6. Purchase of Artwork
6a. Process
A User may use the Platform: (i) as Seller, to record the Purchase of any of such User’s Artworks to a Buyer; or (ii) as Buyer, to record the purchase or otherwise receive an Artwork through a Purchase from a Seller. Both the Seller and Buyer must have unique User Accounts. Once a prospective Seller has notified ATO Platfrom of the deal terms, the Platform will generate a Purchase Agreement. After the Buyer has signed the Purchase Agreement, the Seller may initiate title transfer through the Platform at any time. Once the prospective Seller has initiated title transfer and ATO Platform has confirmed that all parties have been paid in accordance with the Purchase Agreement, ATO Platform will approve the Purchase by recording the change in title ownership on the blockchain record. As between Seller and ATO Platform, unless otherwise agreed in a writing signed by both of them, Seller will be liable for all fees associated with the Purchase, including the Resale Royalty.
6b. Purchase Agreement
All Purchases of Artwork will be governed by these Terms together with a Purchase Agreement signed by the Artwork’s Artist, ATO Platform, Seller, and Buyer. If there is a conflict between these Terms and a Purchase Agreement, the terms of such Purchase Agreement will prevail with respect to any corresponding Purchase.
6c. Artist’s Resale Royalty
Paragraph 6c will only apply to the Owner of the Artwork if the Owner is the Artist of that Artwork.
The Artist may receive a resale royalty on the secondary sales of the Artist’s Artwork as set forth in the Purchase Agreement (the “Resale Royalty”). The Resale Royalty is determined as a percentage of the final sales price as specified in the Purchase Agreement based on the final sales price as specified in the Purchase Agreement based on the schedule of the following which is subject to change {9.50% on artwork resold from $1 to
$50,000; 7.50% on artwork resold from $50,001 to $250,000; 6.00% on art from $250,001 to
$1,000,000; 5.00% on art from $1,000,001 and up}. You agree that if a User Purchases your Artwork to a third party other than through the Platform, we will not be liable to you for any Resale Royalty unless we later collect a corresponding amount from the breaching Seller. Whether we attempt to enforce these Terms against any such breaching Seller will be up to us in our sole discretion.

6d. Effect of Resale Rights Laws
Paragraph 6d will only apply to the Owner of the Artwork if the Owner is the Artist of that Artwork.
You acknowledge that your contractual right to receive Resale Royalty under Purchase Agreements is separate from whatever rights you may have under resale rights laws. As such, Resale Rights Laws do not affect your contractual right to receive Resale Royalty. Likewise, your receipt of Resale Royalty does not affect your right to receive amounts under resale rights laws, except to the extent that such laws account for your receipt of contractually-based amounts. But because resale rights laws and the Resale Royalty share the same purpose—namely, to allow artists to participate in the secondary markets for their works—and to avoid providing windfalls at the expense of Buyers, we may reduce the Resale Royalty by the amounts paid by Buyers under the relevant resale rights laws. In addition, if we receive evidence that a Buyer has paid an amount under Resale Rights Laws with respect to the Purchase of your Artwork after we’ve paid you a Resale Royalty corresponding to that Purchase, you will reimburse the Buyer the amount they actually paid under the relevant resale rights laws.6e. Purchase Fees
Primary sales are subject to a fee minimum of USD $1.00. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms or the applicable Purchase Agreement, each Purchase of Artwork following its Primary Sale is subject to the Resale Royalty, which must be submitted to ATO Platform before the title change will be recorded on the Platform. ATO Platform will retain an Administrative Fee of 20% of the Resale Royalty. The remainder of the Resale Royalty will be remitted to the Artist or as otherwise designated in the Purchase Agreement. We may, in our discretion, waive the Administrative Fee.
6f. Representations and Warranties
You represent, warrant, and covenant to us and to all other Users that: (i) all Artwork Information is accurate and accurately represents the Artwork, including the content, quality and condition of such Artwork, and has not been altered or otherwise tampered with; (ii) the Artist is the creator of the Artwork; (iii) the Artwork is not a forgery; (iv) you hold unencumbered title to the Artwork; (v) you have an unencumbered right to consign and Purchase the Artwork; (vi) your use of the Platform, including the registration, consignment or Purchase the Artwork through the Platform, is not in violation of any intellectual property right; (vii) you have not used and will not use the Platform for the purposes of money laundering or any other act or omission contrary to applicable law or regulation; (viii) you have not consigned, sold, donated or otherwise transferred and will not consign, sell, donate or otherwise transfer title to the Artwork at any time without using the Platform; and (ix) your use of the Platform is otherwise in compliance with these Terms. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for any damages incurred by any User, including any Consignee or Buyer of the registered Artwork or third party arising out of or in connection with your breach of any representation, warranty or covenant contained in this paragraph.
6g. Unclaimed Royalties
If ATO Platform remains unable to locate an Artist or User for purposes of paying out any amount due to such Artist or User for more than seven years after such amount was earned, such amount will be claimed by ATO Platform for discretionary purposes including charitable donation.
6h. No Refunds or Credits
We have no obligation to provide refunds or credits, but may grant them in certain circumstances, as a result of specific refund guarantee promotions, or to correct errors made by us, in each case, in our sole discretion.
6i. Non-U.S. Currency Transactions
If a transaction is conducted in a currency other than United States dollars, we will record and treat the transaction for all purposes under these Terms as if it had been conducted in United States dollars converted at the applicable rate provided by the US Treasury Reporting Rates of Exchange from the office of the Secretary of the Treasury at the time of the transaction.

16. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
The Platform (excluding links to web sites operated by others) is controlled and operated by ATO Platform from the State of New York and is not intended to subject ATO Platform to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than the United States. Although ATO Platform has made no effort to publish the Platform elsewhere, it is accessible in all fifty U.S. states and in other countries due to its online presence. As each of these states and countries have laws which may differ from those of New York and from each other, and as you and ATO Platform both benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in which to publish, access, and use the Platform, by accessing, and/or using the Platform you expressly agree that all matters arising from or relating to the use and operation of the Platform or these Terms will be governed by the internal laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws principles which may lead to the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
The parties mutually agree that any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to the Platform and/or these Terms (“Claims”) shall be submitted to JAMS, or its successor, for individual, final, and binding arbitration in the State of New York pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, including Rules 16.1 and 16.2 of those Rules. The Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) governs application and interpretation of this arbitration provision and any question as to the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration. In the event of any Claim, you consent to accept service of any process via electronic mail to the email address that you register with ATO Platform; for the avoidance of doubt, you explicitly waive any requirements for or rights to foreign service of process under the Hague Service Convention or other applicable law or treaty and expressly acknowledge that this mutual agreement to arbitrate means limits on pre-hearing discovery and a waiver of a right to a jury trial as well as a waiver of the right to participate in any class action lawsuits, class-wide arbitrations, private attorney-general actions, any action combining individual proceedings without the consent of all parties, and any other proceeding where someone acts in a representative capacity. Judgment on any award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall, in the award, allocate all or part of the costs of the arbitration, including the fees of the arbitrator and the reasonable attorneys’ fees of the prevailing party, plus interest at the rate authorized by law, to the non-prevailing party. You waive any objection which you may have now or hereafter to the laying of venue in New York or the exclusive jurisdiction of JAMS over you. Any Claim brought by you against us or our affiliates must be instituted within one year after the Claim arises or be deemed forever waived and barred.If you are not a United States domiciliary and if the foregoing provision is unenforceable pursuant to the governing law of your jurisdiction, then the terms of the foregoing provision shall be applicable herein to the fullest extent permissible by law, and any dispute arising from your use of the Platform and/or these Terms will be finally settled by arbitration under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce then in effect, by one arbitrator appointed in accordance with such Rules, and such arbitration shall be the exclusive method to settle any such dispute. The arbitration award, as well as any other decision of the arbitrator (including any conservative or interim measures), shall be final, non-appealable, binding and executory. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language and it shall have its seat in New York, New York, USA. Judgment on the arbitrator’s decision may be entered in, and enforced by, any court having jurisdiction over the party against which an award is entered or over such party’s assets, and the parties hereby irrevocably waive any defense and any objection to the exercise of jurisdiction by such courts, based on international comity, improper venue or forum non-convenient.The Platform is only a means of connecting Users for purposes of Purchasing title to Artworks and creating a record of such Purchases, and except to the extent, if any, that we serve as a platform among Users to facilitate the Purchase of title in Artworks and creating a record of such Purchases, we do not take part in the interaction between or among Users. As a result of our limited involvement in the actual contact between or among Users, in the event that you have a dispute with any Users, you hereby release us, and our officers, directors, employees, agents, investors, subsidiaries and contractors from any and all claims, demands or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. We expressly disclaim any liability for claims that may arise between or among Users of the Site. You waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.” You waive any other similar provision of applicable law that applies to you.17. Miscellaneous
In addition to any excuse provided by applicable law, we shall be excused from liability for nondelivery or delay in delivery of the Platform arising from any event beyond our reasonable control, whether or not foreseeable, including without limitation labor disturbance, war, fire, accident, adverse weather, inability to secure transportation, governmental act or regulation and other causes or events beyond our reasonable control, whether or not similar to those which are enumerated above.
If any part of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. Any failure by us to enforce or exercise any provision of these Terms or related rights shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.18. Questions?
