By using the Digital Platforms, Products, or Services, you affirm that you are able and legally competent to agree to and comply with this Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement or are not legally competent to agree to this Agreement, then you may not access and use the Digital Platforms, Products, or Services.
Any heading, caption or section title contained herein is inserted only as a matter of convenience and in no way defines or explains any section or provision hereof.
Club dVIN does not offer the sale of securities or provide investment advice.
The Genesis and Global Insider NFTs (collectively, the “Private Membership Invitations”) represent membership interests in the Club dVIN wine club and entitle the holder to certain club benefits, including access to Club dVIN’s exclusive network, exclusive education and content, concierge services, and invitations to tag-along wine and crypto events.
The Genesis and Global Insider tokens do not confer any right to make decisions about the management of Club dVIN, and do not entitle the holder to share in the profits and losses of Club dVIN. No agency, partnership or joint venture is intended or created by this Agreement.
The ability for Club dVIN Genesis members to mint one (1) Club dVIN membership per year for five (5) years will be granted in recognition of members’ long-standing and active membership supporting the club. This is intended to enable you to share the benefits of membership with friends or family, is not intended as an investment. Private Membership Invitations may not have any monetary value.
From time to time, Club dVIN will issue collectible NFTs (the “Tasting Tokens”) in connection with the provision of Products or Services, including but not limited to in-person winery events, rare wine offerings, and access to local and global events and experiences. The Tasting Tokens are used to create a record of the Products and Services it relates to and may not have any monetary value.
NFTs are not securities or financial instruments and are not offered for investment purposes. To the extent there is a price or market for a blockchain asset such as an NFT, (a) those prices and markets are extremely volatile, (b) variations in the price of other digital assets could materially and adversely affect the monetary value of any digital assets you own, including NFTs, and (c) there is no guarantee that NFTs will have or retain any value. You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for the risks of engaging in any transactions relating to your NFTs with third parties.
There are risks associated with using Internet-based digital assets such as NFTs and cryptocurrency, including, but not limited to, the risk to hardware, software, and Internet connections, the risk of malicious software introduction, and the risk that third parties may obtain unauthorized access to information stored within your blockchain wallet. You accept and acknowledge that Club dVIN will not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions, or delays you may experience when using the Ethereum blockchain network.
The Digital Platforms do not store, send, or receive NFTs. This is because NFTs exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on Club dVIN’s supporting blockchain in the Ethereum blockchain network. Any transfer of NFTs occurs within the supporting blockchain, and not on the Digital Platforms. Club dVIN does not make any promises or guarantees about the availability of NFTs and does not represent that it will host your or any other NFTs at any specific location and/or for any specific period of time. Upgrades to the Ethereum blockchain, a hard fork or other change to the Ethereum blockchain, a failure or cessation of the Ethereum blockchain or its underlying cryptocurrency, or a change in how transactions are confirmed on the Ethereum blockchain may have unintended, adverse effects on the NFTs registered on the blockchain. We do not make any promises or guarantees related to the Ethereum Foundation, the Ethereum blockchain, or any other third parties related to the NFTs or any third-party platform (including any of their respective applications and/or services, as well as to the continued availability of or the protection or storage of any data you provide to those parties).
You accept and acknowledge that we will not be responsible for any loss of access to your NFTs due to loss of your private key(s), custodial error or purchaser error, mining attacks, hacking, security weaknesses, fraud, counterfeiting, cyberattacks, and other technological difficulties.
The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens is uncertain and new regulations or policies may have a material adverse effect on the development of the Products or Services, and therefore the potential utility or value of NFTs. You accept and acknowledge that Club dVIN will not be responsible for the risk of changes to the regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, and tokens, new regulations, and unfavorable regulatory intervention in one or more jurisdictions or policies, any of which may materially adversely affect the use and value of NFTs.
You are solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to your NFT-related transactions. We are not responsible for determining the taxes that apply to your transactions on the Ethereum network.
All sales are final. Once you have made a purchase of a Private Membership Invitation or Tasting Token (collectively, “Club dVIN NFTs”), you should promptly take the necessary steps to complete your transaction (e.g., activate or download any content or secure any seed phrase or corresponding private key). We encourage the use of secure, offline storage measures for Club dVIN NFTs.
By using the Digital Platforms, Products or Services you represent that you are of legal age to purchase and consume wine products in your jurisdiction. You agree to provide us with accurate information and verification concerning your age or identity if we request it and agree not to assist anyone in accessing the Digital Platforms, Products or Services if they are below the legal age to purchase and consume wine products in their jurisdiction.
Club dVIN’s listed membership benefits represent current offerings and are subject to change. As a membership program, Club dVIN enables members to enjoy wine centric experiences and cultural events but does not offer the sale of wine. Membership prices and descriptions listed on the Digital Platforms are informational only and do not constitute a binding contract for sale. Please see pricing and membership options during the invitation and minting process for final pricing and membership benefits.
Where permitted by this Agreement and applicable law, you may resell or otherwise transfer Club dVIN NFTs that you own. Any sale or transfer must provide for the transfer of all your rights then outstanding with respect to the Club dVIN NFTs, and anyone receiving Club dVIN NFTs from you must agree to and be bound by this Agreement.
You may not sell, swap, donate, give away, transfer, or otherwise dispose of your purchased Club dVIN NFTs to any person who is not of legal age to purchase and consume wine in their local jurisdiction. You also may not transfer a Private Membership Invitation to someone who already owns a one. Removal of responsible drinking messages included in our Club dVIN NFTs is prohibited. We expressly reserve the right to seize, freeze, or otherwise modify the ownership of any Club dVIN NFTs in case of non-compliance with the foregoing.
We reserve the right to issue new Club dVIN NFTs and related goods and experiences in the future.
To ensure the best possible service level, Club dVIN reserves the right to make the Digital Platforms, Products or Services inaccessible during maintenance, system updates, or for any other reason when necessary.
Club dVIN reserves the right to limit the availability of the Digital Platforms, Products, Services and/or the provision of any service, program, or other product described on the Digital Platforms to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion.
We reserve the right to modify or discontinue the Digital Platforms, Products or Services with or without notice at any time, provided, however, that we will use reasonable efforts to provide advance notice of such action. Club dVIN (including, without limitation, our licensors) shall not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of any of the Digital Platforms, Products, or Services.
Your ability to access and use the Digital Platforms, Products or Services remains in effect until terminated in accordance with this Agreement of Use. You agree that Club dVIN, in its sole discretion, may restrict or terminate your membership and your use of the Digital Platforms, Products or Services if we believe that you have violated or acted inconsistently with this Agreement or for any other reason.
Club dVIN also may in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Digital Platforms, Products or Services, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Digital Platforms, Products or Services may be effected without prior notice and you acknowledge and agree that Club dVIN may bar any further access to the Digital Platforms, Products or Services. Further, you agree that Club dVIN will not be liable to you or to any third-party for any restriction or termination of access to the Digital Platforms, Products or Services.
You may request to terminate your account via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Termination Request.”
The provisions of the Intellectual Property Rights, Disclaimer of Warranties, Indemnity, Limitation of Liability, Governing Law and Jurisdiction, and Dispute Resolution sections, together with any other rights and obligations which by their nature are reasonably intended to survive such termination, will survive any termination of this Agreement.
Club dVIN’s performance of this Agreement is subject to existing laws and legal processes, and nothing contained in this Agreement is in derogation of Club dVIN’s right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Digital Platforms, Products, Services or information provided to or gathered by Club dVIN with respect to such use. A printed version of this Agreement and of any notices given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent, and subject to the same conditions, as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. The parties agree that all correspondence relating to this Agreement must be written in the English language.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Club dVIN with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all other communications, including but not limited to all prior agreements between the parties with respect to such subject matter. This Agreement will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
When registering on the Digital Platforms or third-party services, you may be required to select a username and password, key, or other form of secure authentication that will be used to access your account (collectively, “Access Credentials”). You are responsible for any use of your Access Credentials, whether by you or others. You agree to keep your Access Credentials confidential and not share them with anyone else.
Club dVIN is not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your Access Credentials or any other personal information, including but not limited to loss of access to any NFTs. You authorize Club dVIN to act on instructions received through use of your Access Credentials, and Club dVIN may, but is not obligated to, deny access or block any transaction made through use of your Access Credentials without prior notice.
The Digital Platforms and Products contain valuable trademarks and service marks owned and used by Club dVIN, including but not limited to, “CLUBDVIN.COM”, the Club dVIN design logo, tagline “Don’t wish you had,” and NFT artwork (collectively, the “Club dVIN Marks”). Any use of the Club dVIN Marks without prior written permission of Club dVIN is strictly prohibited.
You acknowledge and agree that Club dVIN (or, as applicable, its licensors) own all rights, title, and interest in and to any artwork, designs, drawings, photographs, labels, logos, insignia, trademarks, trade dress, copyright, recipes, formulas and other creative materials that may be associated with any NFT minted by or with permission from Club dVIN. In addition, the arrangement and layout of the Digital Platforms, including but not limited to, the Club dVIN Marks, images, text, graphics, buttons, screenshots, music, digitally downloadable files, and other content or material are the sole and exclusive property of Club dVIN. Club dVIN partners with a network of independent product and content suppliers, distributors, and other third parties to supply the Products or Services advertised on the Digital Platforms. All other trademarks, service marks, product names, company names, or logos that are not owned by Club dVIN but which appear on the Digital Platforms or Products are the property of their respective owners.
UNAUTHORIZED COPYING, REPRODUCTION, MODIFYING, REPUBLISHING, UPLOADING, DOWNLOADING, POSTING, TRANSMITTING, MAKING DERIVATIVE WORKS OF, OR DUPLICATING ALL OR ANY PART OF THE DIGITAL PLATFORMS OR PRODUCTS IS PROHIBITED. You agree that you shall not bypass, modify, defeat, or circumvent any technologies or methods to deliver or protect the NFTs or any other content provided through the Digital Platforms.
Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in this provision is intended to limit the ability to transfer the Private Membership Invitations issued by Club dVIN.
As a condition of your use of the Digital Platforms, Products or Services you agree to not use the Digital Platforms or any information contained within for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement, conditions, and notices.

Views expressed and information shared by presenters at Club dVIN’s events are the views and opinions of the presenters alone and do not express the views of Club dVIN unless otherwise stated expressly or in writing.
To the extent there is a conflict between the terms of the Privacy Notice and this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement govern.

Club dVIN intends for the information and data contained in the Digital Platforms, Products or communicated in connection with the Services to be accurate and reliable. However, since the information and data on the Digital Platforms has been compiled from a variety of sources, including third parties, the information is provided ‘AS IS’ and “AS AVAILABLE.” You expressly agree that your use of the Digital Platforms and any information contained therein is at your sole risk. Accordingly, to the extent permitted by applicable law, CLUB DVIN EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, ACCURACY, MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS THAT MAY ARISE FROM ANY COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, OR USAGE OF TRADE RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT.
These disclaimers may not apply in certain jurisdictions where prohibited by law.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL CLUB DVIN OR ITS OFFICERS, MANAGERS, MEMBERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS, SUBSIDIARIES, DISTRIBUTORS, AFFILIATES, OR THIRD PARTIES PROVIDING INFORMATION ON THE DIGITAL PLATFORMS OR VIA OTHER CHANNELS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PHONE AND EMAIL, BE LIABLE TO ANY USER OF THE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, OR LOSS OF USE) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE DIGITAL PLATFORMS, PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR ANY INFORMATION CONTAINED ON THE DIGITAL PLATFORMS, INCLUDING USER-GENERATED CONTENT, WHETHER BASED UPON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF CLUB DVIN HAS BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR LOSSES.
In no event shall Club dVIN’s liability exceed in the aggregate, the amount paid to Club dVIN in the twelve (12) months preceding the month in which a cause of action is alleged to have arisen.
You hereby acknowledge that the preceding limitation on liability will apply to all content, merchandise, and services available through the Digital Platforms or other channels. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such jurisdictions liability is limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.
You agree to indemnify and hold Club dVIN and its agents and licensors harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of (i) your use of the Digital Platforms, Products or Services, (ii) your violation of this Agreement or (iii) your violation of any rights of another member of Club dVIN.
The Digital Platforms, Products and Services are provided by Club dVIN, LLC which is incorporated in Wyoming, USA. This Agreement and all disputes arising out of or related to your use of the Digital Platforms, Products and Services are governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to conflict of law principles. Club dVIN makes no representation that the Digital Platforms, Products or Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations and accessing them from territories where their contents are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Digital Platforms from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
You understand, acknowledge, and agree that exports, re-exports, and in-country transfers of any NFT, wine product, or other products or services are subject to U.S. export, import, customs, antiboycott, and economic sanctions laws, regulations, rules, and orders (each, a “Trade Control Law”). You shall not export, re-export, or otherwise transfer or provide any NFT, wine product, or avail yourself of any other products or services made available by Club dVIN, in contravention of any Trade Control Law, including to anyone (a) in Cuba, Iran, North Korea, or Syria, or in any other embargoed destination, or (b) listed on, or owned or controlled by anyone on a sanctioned party list published by the U.S. Departments of Commerce or Treasury, including the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (a “Sanctioned Party”). You certify that you are not a Sanctioned Party or located in or a resident of any embargoed destination. In addition to any other remedy that Club dVIN may have, we may suspend and/or cancel the provision of any portion of the Digital Platforms, Products or Services if we believe, in our discretion, that such activity may violate any Trade Control Law or Club dVIN ’s own compliance policies.
Any and all disputes or controversies arising under or relating to the interpretation or application of this Agreement, any extension or modification thereof, the asserted breach thereof, or your use of the Digital Platforms, Products, or Services shall resolved through final and binding arbitration seated in New York under the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS) Expedited Arbitration Procedures in force when the notice of arbitration is submitted in accordance with such rules.
There shall be one arbitrator, and the arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in English. Any arbitrator so appointed shall be empowered to, in addition to awarding actual money damages (but not punitive damages) against the party found to have violated this Agreement, grant in his award injunctive or other types of equitable relief to enforce specific performance of this Agreement and to prevent any continuing or further violation of this Agreement.
Judgment upon the award rendered in such arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Each party hereby irrevocably consents to venue in New York, and to the jurisdiction of competent courts in New York for all litigation that may be brought in connection with such arbitration.
The cost of such arbitration shall be borne equally by the parties, except that each party shall be responsible for its own attorneys’ fees.
No waiver of any provision or any breach of this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any other provisions or any other or further breach. Club dVIN’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any such right or provision. No waiver shall be considered a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term.
Should any provision of this Agreement be deemed or become invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, the invalidity or unenforceability of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions, which shall remain in full force and effect.
Any such invalid or unenforceable provision will be interpreted, construed, and reformed to the extent reasonably required to render it valid, enforceable, and consistent with its original intent.
Club dVIN reserves the right to transfer, assign, dispose of by novation, or subcontract any or all rights or obligations under this Agreement, taking your legitimate interests into account. Provisions regarding changes of this Agreement will apply accordingly. You may not assign or transfer your rights or obligations under this Agreement in any way, without the written permission of Club dVIN.
Unless stated otherwise in the description of the applicable NFT, an NFT that you own will be transferable, but any transferee will be subject to this Agreement.
Your continued use of the Digital Platforms, Products or Services will signify your acceptance of the revised Agreement. If you do not wish to be bound by the revised Agreement, you must stop using the Digital Platforms, Products and Services.
