Molecule Catalyst is a proprietary crowdfunding platform developed by Linum Labs AG (“Molecule”, “we”, “us”, “our”). Molecule is an application for researchers to fundraise grants for their research projects. It provides a platform where users can discover interesting ideas and support these causes and exchange information with researchers.
Users based in the U.S. are not allowed to access and use the Site and its features.
By accessing the Site, you acknowledge and agree that you:
Usage of our Site introduces risk factors for which we cannot be held responsible:
Using the Site, you agree that you assume all the risks associated with this factor, and release Molecule from all liability caused when interacting with the Site, Protocol or Smart Contracts in any way.
To the maximum permitted extent, Molecule, individual directors, employees and agents of Molecule are not liable in any form or way for direct or indirect losses, liability claims, costs, receivables, expenses or damages of any kind, whether they arise from a contract or criminal offence or other legal reason, that result from the use of this Site or in association with it. Liability due to negligence is also excluded.
The Site is offered “as is” and “as available”. To the maximum permitted extent, Molecule does not assume any guarantee, either explicitly or implicitly, with regard to the content, information and functionalities of the Site. Molecule does not guarantee the accuracy, timeliness, completeness, reliability or availability of information or results that are from the use of the Site. Molecule does not guarantee that the Site does not contain any viruses or errors.
Any professional information on the Site (eg. medical, legal, financial) is displayed for informational purposes only and it is not Molecule’s intention to provide any advisory services through the Site. No action should be taken based on any information contained in the Site.
The Site can contain content from third parties or links to third party websites. Molecule does not have control over the content of said sites and does not not assume responsibility for any product or site advertised or offered by a third party through the Site or any hyperlinked websites. This also applies for the accuracy and quality of the content.
Unless otherwise indicated, all intellectual property rights and any content provided in connection with the Site, are the property of Molecule or our licensors or suppliers and are protected by applicable intellectual property laws. We do not give any implied license for the use of the contents of the Site. Our intention is to protect the intellectual property of Molecule as well as of all the researchers that publish their projects on the Site. All rights and information associated with the submitted research projects remain the sole property of the user.
You accept and acknowledge that the material and content contained in or delivered by the Site is made available for your personal, lawful, non-commercial use only and that you may only use such material and content for the purpose of using the Site as set forth in this agreement. Any other use of content from the Site is strictly prohibited and you agree not to infringe or enable others to infringe our intellectual property rights. You may not sell or modify materials derived or created from the Site or reproduce, display, publicly perform, distribute or otherwise use the materials in any way for any public or commercial purpose.
We respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask you to notify us if you believe work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and is accessible via the Site.
Molecule’s goal is to provide a novel way to crowdfund research experiments. The platform allows certain users (“Researchers”) to list their research proposals and budget expectations (“Projects”) and collect contributions from other users (“Supporters”, “Contributors”, “Backers”). All funds are managed directly through our smart contract infrastructure and never by Molecule itself.
Molecule is not liable for any of your interactions with other users found through our services. You hereby waive all claims against Molecule arising from such interactions. Molecule will not get involved in disputes between Supporters and Researchers and all dealings are directly between them. Molecule is not responsible for any of the actions of a Researcher and only Researchers can be held liable for fulfilling implied obligations. Molecule can at any time suspend a listed project for any reason. It is solely your own choice to contribute to a research fundraising campaign and backing a project does not give you any ownership, control or distribution rights. In return for your contribution you might receive Project Tokens. These cryptographic tokens are automatically distributed through our smart contracts. The tokens do not represent any right or asset. The only value these tokens have arises from the collateral stored in the associated Token Bonding Curve. You can always return these tokens in exchange for their current value in collateral. Molecule does in no case guarantee that a fundraising goal will be met. It is important to notice that contributions to projects are non-refundable. Molecule is not responsible for any contribution transactions and they are only between you, the Researcher and the processor. Molecule makes no representations regarding the deductibility of any contribution for tax purposes. Researchers may designate collected funds to another project that closely adheres with the donor’s original intent if the original undertaking cannot be completed. Researchers can also initiate refunds at their own discretion.
All financial transactions that users will engage in are directly handled by the Ethereum network through MetaMask (or other compatible wallets). Therefore, we have no control over any of these payments and do not have the ability to revert any transactions. We will have no liability for any claims due to any transactions you engage with through the Site. Using Ethereum requires the payment of transaction fees to fund the decentralised network of computers. The user needs to cover these costs when conducting transactions associated with the Site.
If individual provisions of these Terms and Conditions of Use are considered invalid, unlawful or non-enforceable by a responsible court or a responsible authority pursuant to the respective law, this will not restrict the validity, lawfulness or enforceability of the other terms and conditions.
