Crypto Wallet Service

Last updated: May 10, 2021

  1. Opera’s cryptocurrency wallet provides self-hosted, user controlled solution ("Service") for Ethereum-based blockchains ("Ethereum Networks") and cryptographically secured digital assets ("Cryptocurrency"). While commonly referred to as a "wallet", it is important for you to understand that, unlike cash in a physical wallet, Cryptocurrency is not stored in the wallet.

  2. Our wallet Service stores a key pair (an address or public key, as well as an encrypted private key). The key pair enables you to communicate with Ethereum Networks through our wallet Service and without requiring you to download or install additional software to your device. Any Cryptocurrency, however, is stored, sent and received by and within the relevant Ethereum Network. The wallet Service facilitates your communications with and use of these Ethereum Networks.

  3. Ethereum Networks are peer-to-peer networks supported by third parties. In order to be completed, all proposed transactions must be confirmed and recorded in the Cryptocurrency’s associated network. We have no control over the Ethereum Networks and, therefore, cannot and do not ensure that any transaction details that you submit will be confirmed and processed, or that this will occur in a timely manner. You should carefully assess the Ethereum Network and Cryptocurrency with which you choose to transact. Use of our wallet Service is subject to these Terms of Service, including the following:

    a. Create or Import a Wallet. To use this Service, you must either import an existing wallet or create a new wallet. If you create a new wallet, you will be assigned a key pair consisting of a public key (or address) for your wallet, as well as an encrypted private key. You will also be assigned a human readable, mnemonic passphrase ("Backup Phrase") for use in accessing your encrypted private key.

    b. Write Down Your Backup Phrase. When creating a new wallet, you will be prompted to write down your Backup Phrase. Your wallet does not receive or store your Backup Phrase. Neither your key pair nor the Backup Phrase is available to us. We cannot, therefore, assist you with key pair or Backup Phrase retrieval. We cannot generate a new Backup Phrase for your wallet. You accept and acknowledge that any Cryptocurrency you have associated with your wallet address will become inaccessible if you do not have your Backup Phrase. We also strongly encourage users to take a backup of their Backup Phrase as well as their key pair on an external medium.

    c. Keep Your Backup Phrase Secure. The Backup Phrase can be used to unlock your encrypted private key, which is stored in a separate file on your device. The private key is connected to your wallet’s public address and, together, they can be used to authorize the transfer of Cryptocurrency to and from that address. You will be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Backup Phrase, and will be fully responsible for any and all activities that occur using such Backup Phrase.

    d. You are Responsible to Manage Your Cryptocurrency. Once transaction details have been submitted to an Ethereum Network it is not possible to cancel or otherwise modify your transaction. We have no control over any Ethereum Network and we do not have the ability to facilitate any cancellation or modification request. You must ensure that you have adequate Cryptocurrency associated with your wallet address before initiating a transaction.

    e. You Must Comply With the Law. You can only use our wallet Service if permitted under the laws of your jurisdiction. Please make sure that your use of the wallet Service is in compliance with all laws, rules, and regulations that apply to you. It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to your Cryptocurrency transactions, and it is your responsibility to report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority where applicable. We are not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your transactions or for collecting, reporting, withholding, or remitting any taxes arising from any of your transactions.

By uploading or creating such UGC, you grant Opera the worldwide, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty free license to use, reproduce, create derivative works, display, perform and distribute for the UGC.

  5. Publisher content. Publishers are solely responsible for the content they upload and distribute on Gamebox. Publishers affirm, represent, and warrant that they own or have the rights, licenses, permissions and consents necessary to publish, duplicate, and distribute the submitted content. By submitting content to the Service for distribution, Publishers also grant a license to Opera for all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to the Content for publication on the Service, pursuant to these Terms. Opera does not endorse copyright infringing activities or other intellectual property infringing activities and violations of the law may result in the removal of content if Opera is notified of such violations. Removal and termination of accounts may occur without prior notice.

    Publishers retain all ownership rights to the submitted content, and by submitting content to the Service, Publishers hereby grant the following:

    a. To Opera, a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the content in connection with the Service, including without limitation for promoting, redistributing in any and all media formats. If you choose to remove your content from the Service, this license shall terminate within a commercially reasonable time after you remove your content from the Service.

    b. To Users, a non-exclusive, perpetual license to access the content and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such content as permitted through the functionality of the Service. Users shall retain a license to this content even after the content is removed from the Service.

  6. Payment forms. Publishers who distribute content on the Service for a fee may be subject to the acceptable use policies of our payment providers. You can review the acceptable use policies for our payment providers:

    When you provide payment information to Opera or one of its payment providers, you represent that you are the authorized user of the card, PIN, key or account associated with that payment, and you authorize Opera to charge your credit card or process your payment with the chosen payment provider.

  7. Transactions and Fees. Publishers may set the prices, at their own discretion, for their content and products to be sold through the Service (each sale, a "Transaction"). Opera shall be entitled to a share of the revenue Publishers receive from Transactions which shall be calculated on the gross revenue from the Transactions, not including any Transactions for which Publisher or Opera provides a refund in accordance with the transaction configuration on Publisher’s account (the "Revenue Share"). For Transactions, Opera will collect the purchase price and any applicable fees and taxes through its payment providers, and will pay to Publisher the proceeds net of the applicable Revenue Share, payment provider fees, and applicable taxes, VAT, duties, charges or levies. Opera may withhold any taxes, duties, charges or levies on payments by Opera to Publisher pursuant to these Terms, as may be required by applicable law, rule or regulation, and submit such withheld taxes, duties, charges or levies to the appropriate tax authority. Use of IP proxies or other methods to disguise your place of residence, whether to circumvent geographic restrictions on content, to purchase at a price not applicable to your geography, or for any other purpose, is a violation of these Terms.

  8. Refunds. Users may request, and Opera may process, refund requests if the purchased content cannot run, some other issue prevents access to the content, or the product does not accurately represent what was advertised. For technical issues, Opera will direct users to the Publisher to first try to resolve such issues. To request a refund, please contact support with your purchase information. For content selling third party external keys (e.g. Steam keys), Opera may require the Publisher to confirm cancellation of the key before a refund can be processed due to Opera’s inability to disable access. Some Publishers utilizing older payment methods are responsible for handling refunds themselves. If you are uncertain about refund eligibility, please contact support.

  9. Start of the Terms. These Terms start when you confirm your agreement to it or start using any of the Gamebox Property and will end once either you or we terminate it, as we explain below.

  10. Your Termination Rights. You may terminate the contract offered by these Terms at any time by ceasing all use of the Gamebox Property at any time.

  11. Our Termination Rights. We may restrict, suspend or terminate the contract offered by these Terms and your access to all or any part of the Gamebox Property and/or Publisher Property at any time without prior notice or liability if:

    a. you commit a breach of your obligations or any other term under these Terms or violate the rights of any third party intellectual property owner;

    b. if you are an individual, you become bankrupt;

    c. if you are another legal entity, you become insolvent (including being unable to pay your debts as they fall due and/or the value of your assets is less than the amount of your liabilities, taking into account contingent and prospective liabilities), propose an individual, company or partnership voluntary arrangement, have a receiver, administrator or manager or trustee in bankruptcy appointed over the whole or any part of your business or assets; if any petition shall be presented in good faith, order shall be made or resolution passed for your winding up (except for the purpose of amalgamation or reconstruction), bankruptcy or dissolution (including the appointment of provisional liquidators/interim receivers or special managers); if you shall otherwise propose or enter into any composition or arrangement with your creditors or any class of them or you cease or threaten to cease to carry on business;

    d. we decide not to provide the Gamebox Property anymore (see below);

    e. you act in any way that may be considered threatening, abusive, obscene, racist, xenophobic, sexist, defamatory, or otherwise offensive or illegal towards any member of Opera staff;

    f. we delete your Gamebox account in response to a data deletion request from you;

    g. we delete your Gamebox account due to sustained periods of inactivity, provided that we will use reasonable efforts to contact you via the contact details you have provided to us prior to terminating your Gamebox account under this ground.

  12. Effect of Termination. If your contract with us offered by these Terms discontinues for any reason then it will cease immediately to have effect (apart from any sections that are necessary for our enforcement of any legal rights and remedies against you). This means that you will no longer have access to the Gamebox Property and Publisher Property.

  13. Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable for any failure to fulfil its obligations under these Terms as a result of force majeure and in such circumstances the time for performance shall be extended by a period equivalent to the period during which performance of the obligation has been delayed or failed to be performed. If either party is prevented or delayed in the performance of its obligations under these Terms by reason of force majeure, that party shall, as soon as reasonably possible, serve notice in writing on the other party specifying the nature and extent of the circumstances giving rise to force majeure. In this section 12 (Force Majeure), "Force Majeure" means any cause preventing a party from performing any or all of its obligations that arises from or is attributable to acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond the reasonable control of the party so prevented including strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes (other than any such dispute involving the workforce of the party so prevented), nuclear accident or acts of God, war or terrorist activity, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage (excluding malicious damage involving the employees of the affected party or its subcontractors), industrial action by employees of any providers of electrical power, failure of technical facilities, fire, flood, or storm or default of suppliers or subcontractors.

  14. Ceasing to provide the Gamebox Property or Publisher Property. If we decide to cease to provide the Gamebox Property, then you will be notified as soon as reasonably possible. If for any reason Publisher Property that you have validly licensed is taken down from the Gamebox Platforms, we encourage Publishers to notify you and ensure that the relevant Publisher Property will remain available to valid existing Users for a period of 30 days (but subject to our ultimate discretion and legal obligations as to whether they can be made available in this way or not). Following that period, the Publisher Property (and/or if appropriate the relevant Gamebox Property) will no longer be available unless we notify you otherwise.
