3.2 You must not, under any circumstances:
3.2 (a): use exploits, automation software, bots, mods, or any unauthorized third-party software designed to modify or interfere with any of Arcade’s services, any game hosted by Arcade, any Arcade smart contract, any Arcade NFT, any sale of $ARCADE, or any Arcade gaming experience or without ARCADE2EARN’s express written consent, modify or cause to be modified any files that are a part of the service or any Arcade platform or game hosted by Arcade;

3.3 You agree that you will not use a name for any NFT or user that is likely to be offensive, derogatory, prejudicial, inflammatory or inappropriate for use amongst Arcade’s community. Arcade reserves the right upon to cancel the name of any NFT or user which Arcade determines in its absolute discretion to be offensive, derogatory, prejudicial, inflammatory or inappropriate for use amongst Arcade’s community by giving the NFT owner or user written notice (which may provided after the name has been canceled). Where such a determination is made, the NFT name or user name will be changed to a generic name and the NFT owner or account registrant will be able to choose a new name. You agree that the determination of Arcade is final and not reviewable, and that repeated breaches of this clause may result in suspension of the user’s account or the ability for the user to participate in Arcade and/or the termination of the License issued under these Terms.
3.4 We reserve the right to suspend or terminate a User account for breach of these Terms by the User or fraudulent, harmful, criminal or unfair behavior of a User, to include, but not limited to:
3.4 (a): we suspect the User of committing fraud in connection with these Terms;
3.4 (b): the User engaging in suspicious transactions;

Arcade will release a certain number of Mission Pools onto the Arcade Platform, ranging varying amounts of in-game activities across multiple blockchain play-2-earn games across various blockchains, and make them available for $ARCADE contributions and sponsorships to the public at the Arcade’s discretion. Arcade will release a number of Genesis NFTs that will have unique utility on the Arcade Platform, and will never release additional Genesis NFTs.
3.7 WHEN PARTICIPANTS SELECT A MISSION POOL TO CONTRIBUTE OR OPERATE A MISSION POOL USING ARCADE LENT IN-GAME NFTs, THEY ARE UTILIZING SKILL TO CHOOSE THE MISSION POOL, THE IN-GAME NFT, THE SPECIFIC GAME, AND OTHER FACTORS SUCH AS THE AMOUNT OF $ARCADE TO DEPOSIT INTO THE MISSION POOL. IN OTHER WORDS, OPERATORS AND CONTRIBUTORS (“PLAYERS”) ABILITIES DETERMINE THE OUTCOME OF THE SKILLS-BASED COMPETITIONS. GAMES OF SKILL ARE PERMITTED IN MOST JURISDICTIONS AND DO NOT CONSTITUTE GAMBLING (WHICH GENERALLY REQUIRES A GAME OF CHANCE, PRIZE, AND CONSIDERATION TO PLAY). SOME JURISDICTIONS LIMIT GAMES OF SKILL WHERE PAYMENTS ARE INVOLVED; HOWEVER, RECEIPT OF $ARCADE SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED AS PAYMENT OF ANY SORT. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE JURISDICTION IN WHICH YOU ARE LOCATED PERMITS SKILL-BASED COMPETITIONS. WHEN YOU PARTICIPATE IN COMPETITIONS, THESE TERMS OF SERVICE SHALL APPLY.

3.8 (b): https://metamask.io/privacy.html
3.9 You are responsible for any Internet connection and telecommunication fees and charges that you incur when accessing Arcade.
3.10 Transactions that take place on Arcade are managed and confirmed via the Solana blockchain, which is a proof of stake network. Proof of stake networks use less energy than proof of work networks. You understand that your Solana public address will be made publicly visible whenever you engage in a transaction on Arcade.
3.11 We neither own nor control MetaMask, Google Chrome, the Solana network, or any other third party site, product, or service that you might access, visit, or use for the purpose of enabling you to use the various features of Arcade. Arcade will not be liable for the acts or omissions of any such third parties, nor will we be liable for any damage that you may suffer as a result of your transactions or any other interaction with any such third parties.
3.12 You must provide accurate and complete registration information when you create an account or KYCing on the Arcade Platform. By purchasing $ARCADE and/or by utilizing the Arcade Platform, you agree to provide accurate, current and complete account information about yourself, and to maintain and promptly update as necessary your account information. You are responsible for the security of your account and your MetaMask wallet (and other Solana wallets and email accounts).
3.13 You may not share or transfer any account. You may not disclose your password or other credentials to anyone. You agree to immediately notify Arcade by sending an email to us at [email protected] concerning any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of your account or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure of your password. You understand and agree that you shall be liable for all activities that occur under any account created for your use, even if such activities were not committed by you. We are not responsible for any loss or damage arising from your failure to maintain the confidentiality of your password or of your account.
SECTION 4. FEES
4.1 If you elect to purchase, sell, contribute, sponsor, or lend $ARCADE or any Arcade product using the Arcade Platform, or with or from other users of the Arcade Platform, any financial transactions that you engage in will be conducted solely through the Solana network. We will have no insight into or control over these payments or transactions, nor do we have the ability to reverse any transactions. With that in mind, we will have no liability to you or to any third party for any claims or damages that may arise as a result of any transactions that you engage in via the dApp, or using the Smart Contracts, or any other transactions that you conduct via the Solana network or Digital Wallet.
4.2 There are various fees associated with transactions on the Arcade Platform to which you affirmatively agree to be liable. Furthermore, the Solana network requires the payment of a transaction fee (“Gas Fee”) for every transaction that occurs on the Solana network. The Gas Fee funds the network of computers that run the decentralized Solana network. This means that you will need to pay a Gas Fee for each transaction that occurs via the dApp, which may or may not be readily apparent.
4.3 In addition to the Gas Fee, each time you utilize a Smart Contract to conduct a transaction with another user via Arcade, you authorize Arcade to collect a commission on certain events only (“Commission”). These events include purchasing, selling, lending, contributing, sponsoring, or operating a Mission Pool on the dApp. You acknowledge and agree that the Commission will be transferred directly to us through the Solana network as part of your payment.
