Welcome to MintCarbon.io, owned and operated by DeepMarkit Corp. (“MintCarbon,” “we,” “us”, or “our”).
For purposes of these Terms, “user”, “you”, and “your” means you as the user of the Service. If you use the Service on behalf of a company or other entity then “you” includes you and that entity, and you represent and warrant that (a) you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to these Terms, and (b) you agree to these Terms on the entity’s behalf.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
BY CLICKING TO ACCEPT AND/OR USING OUR SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND ALL OF THE TERMS INCORPORATED HEREIN BY REFERENCE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE.
MintCarbon is not a marketplace, wallet provider, exchange, broker, financial institution, or creditor. MintCarbon does not offer investment services, securities or financial products, nor does it facilitate secondary trading of NFTs or carbon credits. MintCarbon offers carbon offset holders an on-ramp to the blockchain by enabling the minting of a carbon credit into a decentralized NFT representing the underlying carbon credit ownership, all done via the low-emission Polygon network. We do not have custody or control over the carbon credits, NFTs or blockchains you are interacting with and we do not execute or effectuate purchases, transfers, or sales of carbon credits or NFTs. To use our Service, you must use a third-party wallet.
MintCarbon is a technology provider that is not involved in any capacity in secondary market transactions involving your NFTs (or underlying carbon credits), nor is it party to any agreement between you and any purchaser or seller of NFTs that were created using the Service. You bear full responsibility and liability for all risk associated with transactions in a secondary purchasing or selling NFTs, including with respect to the verification, identification, legitimacy, and authenticity of NFTs that you purchase from third-party sellers. Further, we make no representation as to the marketability or ability to sell NFTs created by using the Service.
Because we have a growing number of services, we sometimes need to provide additional terms for specific services (and such services are deemed part of the “Service” hereunder and shall also be subject to these Terms). Those additional terms and conditions, which are available with the relevant service, then become part of your agreement with us if you use those services. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and any additional applicable terms we may provide for a specific service, such additional terms shall control for that specific service.
MintCarbon reserves the right to change or modify these Terms at any time and in our sole discretion. If we make material changes to these Terms, we will use reasonable efforts to provide notice of such changes, such as by providing notice through the Service or updating the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms. By continuing to access or use the Service (or by entering into a separate agreement with us governing the legal relationship), you confirm your acceptance of the revised Terms and all of the terms incorporated therein by reference effective as of the date these Terms are updated. It is your sole responsibility to review the Terms from time to time to view such changes and to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions that apply when you access or use the Service.

Your blockchain address functions as your identity on MintCarbon. Accordingly, you will need a blockchain address and a third-party wallet to access the Service. Your account on the service (“Account”) will be associated with your blockchain address.
Your Account on MintCarbon will be associated with your linked blockchain address and display the NFTs for that blockchain address (and, if applicable, any content associated with such NFTs). By using your wallet in connection with the Service, you agree that you are using that wallet under the terms and conditions of the applicable provider of the wallet. Wallets are not operated by, maintained by, or affiliated with MintCarbon, and MintCarbon does not have custody or control over the contents of your wallet and has no ability to retrieve or transfer its contents. MintCarbon accepts no responsibility for, or liability to you, in connection with your use of a wallet and makes no representations or warranties regarding how the Service will operate with any specific wallet. You are solely responsible for keeping your wallet secure and you should never share your wallet credentials or seed phrase with anyone. If you discover an issue related to your wallet, please contact your wallet provider. Likewise, you are solely responsible for your Account and any associated wallet and we are not liable for any acts or omissions by you in connection with your Account or as a result of your Account or wallet being compromised. You agree to immediately notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security issues related to the Service or your Account.

MintCarbon may require you to provide additional information and documents in certain circumstances, such as at the request of any government authority, as any applicable law or regulation dictates, or to investigate a potential violation of these Terms. In such cases, MintCarbon, in its sole discretion, may disable your Account and block your ability to access the Service until such additional information and documents are processed by MintCarbon. If you do not provide complete and accurate information in response to such a request, MintCarbon may refuse to restore your access to the Service.

Such website may include Purchase Terms governing the use of the NFT that you will be required to comply with. MintCarbon is not a party to any such Purchase Terms, which are solely between the buyer and the seller. The buyer and seller are entirely responsible for communicating, promulgating, agreeing to, and enforcing Purchase Terms. You are solely responsible for reviewing such Purchase Terms.

We reserve the right in our sole discretion to modify, suspend, or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any features or parts thereof) at any time and without liability as a result.
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 Province of Alberta (without regard to conflict of law rules or principles of the Province of Alberta, or any other jurisdiction that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction).
