  1. To copy, perform, display, distribute, transmit, modify (solely to distribute the Applications for resale to end users per the terms of this Agreement), and use the Application(s) for administrative and demonstration purposes in connection with the operation, promotion, and marketing of GALA Platform and GALA Services itself and in connection with the promotion, marketing, sales, support, and distribution of the Application(s) via the GALA Platform and/or GALA Store;
  2. To distribute and grant Digital Rights in the Application(s) to end users;
  3. For clarity, GALA shall be under no obligation to distribute the Application(s), or once distribution has begun, to continue to distribute the Application(s) at any point during the term of this Agreement.

b. GALA Services and the Application(s)

i. Subject to and conditional upon Your compliance at all times with the Agreement, GALA hereby grants to Developer a non-exclusive, worldwide, non-transferable (except as provided in Section 12(d)), non-sublicensable, and royalty-free license during the term of this Agreement to do the following, solely to enable the Application(s) to be distributed via GALA Developer Portal: (i) copy and use the GALA Services provided by GALA to Developer, internally within Developer’s organization, (ii) modify source code (if any) included by GALA in the GALA Services, and (iii) incorporate into the Application(s) the components of the GALA Services that GALA specifically designates for incorporation into the Application(s) (“Distributable Code”). Subject to the foregoing license, GALA retains all right, title and interest in and to all GALA Services and GALA Platform. GALA reserves the right to restrict, limit, or rescind access at any time to its GALA Developer Portal, GALA Platform or the GALA Services in its sole discretion. 

ii. As between You and GALA, You (and Your licensors, if any) retain all right, title and interest including all Developer Intellectual Property in and to Your Application(s) (excluding, any Distributable Code, GALA Services or GALA Platform, and GALA Intellectual Property integrated therein) and Your Data. You grant GALA a limited, non-exclusive, fully-paid, royalty-free, worldwide license to use and reproduce Your Data solely for the purpose of providing the GALA Services. GALA takes reasonable and appropriate steps to protect all applications or systems that make use of Your Data against unauthorized or unlawful access, use, destruction, loss, alteration or disclosure.

iii. Developer agrees that GALA may grant to end users a non-exclusive, worldwide and perpetual license to download, install and use the Applications(s) for personal use (“Digital Rights”). You and GALA expressly acknowledge that distribution of the Application to end users is not a sale of the Application(s) but the grant of Digital Rights to end users. Such Digital Rights shall be granted pursuant to GALA’s then-current end user license agreement for the GALA Store (“GALA Launcher EULA”) and Developer’s Applications end user license agreement as approved by GALA, if any (“Developer EULA”).

iv. Electronic Delivery License. Developer hereby grants to GALA a non-exclusive license to reproduce, publicly display and perform, transmit, sell, license and otherwise distribute the Application in object code form via GALA Developer Portal and through any type of payment method to GALA Account Owners in the Territory. To the extent that the Agreement includes versions of an Application for multiple operating systems (e.g. a Windows version, a Linux version and an Apple iOS version) such versions shall be sold together as a single “hybrid” Application unit on GALA Developer Portal. Therefore, an Apple iOS version of any Application, a Linux version of an Application, and a Windows version of an Application shall not be considered to be separate sales when calculating the payment obligations pursuant to Section 19. In the case of Demo Versions available outside of GALA Developer Portal, if any, if such a Demo Version includes a reference to how/where to purchase the Application (e.g., screens on start or exit), Developer shall cooperate with GALA to include a reference to GALA in that location.

v. The license granted in Section 3 applies only to the most current version of the GALA Services. Unless otherwise specified by GALA, if GALA makes a newer version of the GALA Services available, Developer must use the newer version for all work in progress and new work, except that Distributable Code included in an Application that is already being distributed via GALA Developer Portal does not have to be replaced with Distributable Code incorporating the newer version of the GALA Services.

The restriction in the foregoing clause, (v) is inapplicable to the extent prohibited by Applicable Law; provided that, in the event Developer intends to disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer the GALA Services or perform other activities described in clause (v), Developer will first provide GALA with written notice thereof. Developer shall not use the GALA Services except as expressly permitted in Section 3 above.

vii. Unless approved by GALA in writing, Developer may only submit to the GALA Developer Portal Applications that are developed by or for Developer. Developer may only submit Applications to the GALA Developer Portal in its own name (unless the GALA and Developer otherwise agree in writing, e.g., in the context of a publisher submitting games on behalf of a developer), and may not submit an Application to GALA Developer Portal on behalf of a third party. The download, installation, and use of the Application(s) must not require, depend on, cause the launching of, or otherwise integrate with any other software running on Your end user’s machine other than the GALA Developer Portal platform unless GALA and Developer specifically amend this Agreement to account for such scenario. For clarity the foregoing does not prohibit Developer from submitting Applications whose functionality enables Your end user to use features, functionality or items in an Application that were purchased in a version of the Application operating on a different platform (e.g., enabling cross-platform use of a virtual item). Upon submitting an Application to GALA Developer Portal, Developer represents and warrants that (i) Developer has provided complete and accurate Developer Materials, including all warnings, disclosures, and other information required under Applicable Laws or regulations to be displayed with each Application, and all information requested by GALA in connection with the Application, and (ii) Developer has used reasonable efforts to verify the Application is compatible with GALA Developer Portal.

Developer agrees that it will not submit material to GALA Developer Portal that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret, or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including patent, privacy, and publicity rights, unless Developer is the owner of such rights or has permission from the rightful owner to submit the material to GALA Developer Portal.

x. Developer represents and warrants that the Application(s) do not contain: (i) any software, content, or other material licensed under a Prohibited License; or (ii) any software, content, or other material that is a modification or derivative work of any software, content, or material licensed under a Prohibited License.

i. Any Application that will be submitted to the GALA Store or through the GALA Developer Portal must be in compliance with the Documentation and this Agreement, including the Program Requirements set forth below.

  1. You will fulfill any applicable regulatory requirements, including full compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies related to the manufacturing, marketing, sale and distribution of Your Application, including in the United States as well as in other countries, territories, or regions where You plan to make Your Application available. However, You agree that You will not seek any regulatory marketing permissions or make any determinations that may result in any GALA products being deemed regulated or that may impose any obligations or limitations on GALA. By building Your Application on GALAChain, You represent and warrant that You are in full compliance with any applicable laws, regulations, and policies. You also represent and warrant that You will market Your Application only for its cleared or approved intended use/indication for use, and only in strict compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. Upon GALA’s request, You agree to promptly provide any such clearance documentation to support the marketing of Your Application. If requested by a government body that has a need to review or test Your Application as part of its regulatory review process, You may provide Your Application to such entity for review purposes. You agree to promptly notify GALA in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 23 of any complaints or threats of complaints regarding Your Application in relation to any such regulatory requirements, in which case GALA may remove Your Application from distribution.

c. Data and Privacy

i. Recordings

  1. In the event that the Application developed by You engages in the capture or creation of any form of video, audio via microphone, screen recordings, or camera-based recordings, irrespective of whether such recordings are retained on the end user’s device or transmitted to a remote server (including, but not limited to, images, photographs, voice captures, speech captures, or any other forms of recordings), it is imperative that the Application integrates and prominently displays an audio, visual, or alternative form of indicator that is readily noticeable to the user, for the purpose of signaling the active occurrence of a recording.
  2. Furthermore, the Application’s practices encompassing the collection, processing, retention, uploading, synchronization, storage, transmission, sharing, disclosure, or utilization of any data, content, or information, whether conducted by, through, or in association with the Application, shall be in strict adherence to all prevailing privacy laws and regulations, in addition to conforming to any relevant program requirements. This includes, but is not limited to, adherence to any stipulations regarding the provision of notice to, and obtaining consent from, end users.

ii. Collection and Use of Data

  1. You, in conjunction with Your Applications and any third parties engaged for the provision of advertising services, are hereby prohibited from the collection of end user or device data without securing explicit consent from the end users beforehand. This encompasses data acquired directly from end users as well as data collected through the utilization of GALA Services or GALA-provided SDKs, with the stipulation that such data collection is solely for the purpose of delivering services or functionalities that are intrinsically linked to the Application’s usage, or for the dissemination of advertising in compliance with specified sections of this Agreement. Any intentions to extend or modify the purview of data utilization for data previously amassed must be preceded by the acquisition of explicit consent from the users regarding such augmented or altered data collection practices.
  2. It is expressly prohibited for both You and Your Application to employ any form of persistent, device-centric identifier, or any data derived thereof, with the objective of uniquely identifying a device. Furthermore, the extraction of any data from a device aimed at the unique identification of either the device itself or its user is strictly prohibited.
  3. You bear the full responsibility to ensure that Your Application, inclusive of any third-party Software Development Kits (not furnished by GALA), is in full compliance with the terms of this Agreement and the accompanying Documentation. In instances where Your Application employs specific APIs as delineated in the Documentation, it is imperative that the metadata within Your Application distinctly enumerates one or more legitimate purposes that accurately mirror Your deployment of each such API and the resultant data utilization. The application of these APIs, along with the data procured from their usage, is restricted solely to the purposes identified. Moreover, in the event that Your Application incorporates a third-party SDK, which is recognized within the Documentation as being commonly utilized, it is incumbent upon You to ensure that such third-party SDK is duly authenticated by the SDK provider and is accompanied by the requisite metadata as outlined in the Documentation.

iii. Disclosures to Users

  1. You are obligated to furnish users with transparent and exhaustive details concerning the collection, utilization, and dissemination of end user or device data. This entails the inclusion of a comprehensive account of how end user and device data are employed within the Application description featured on the GALA Store. Moreover, it is incumbent upon you to implement suitable measures to safeguard such data against illicit exploitation, revelation, or access by unauthorized entities. In the event that an end user withdraws consent or explicitly revokes authorization for the collection, employment, or disclosure of their end user or device data, You, together with any third parties engaged for advertising purposes, are required to immediately discontinue all related activities.
  2. It is mandatory for You to incorporate a privacy policy within Your Application, make it accessible on the GALA Store, and/or present it on Your website. This policy must elucidate Your practices regarding the collection, use, disclosure, sharing, retention, and elimination of user or device data. In adherence to applicable legislation, You are also bound to inform Your end users promptly in the case of a data breach where user data amassed through Your Application is jeopardized. For instance, You are to dispatch an email notification to Your end users in the instance of an accidental exposure or misuse of their end user data.

d. Legal and Other Requirements

i. Applications are required to adhere to all pertinent criminal, civil, and statutory regulations and laws, inclusive of those applicable within any jurisdictions where Your Applications are distributed or accessible. Specifically:

  1. You, along with Your Application, must ensure compliance with all relevant laws and regulations concerning privacy and data collection. This encompasses the lawful handling of any end user or device data collection, utilization, or disclosure, including but not limited to an end user’s IP address, device name, and any end user-associated installed applications.
  2. Applications must not be developed or promoted with the intention of engaging in harassment, abuse, spamming, stalking, threatening, or infringing upon the legal rights (including privacy and publicity rights) of others.
  3. Neither You nor Your Application shall execute any functions or establish links to any content, services, information, or data, nor employ any robots, spiders, site search/retrieval applications, or other devices to scrape, mine, retrieve, cache, analyze, or index any software, data, or services provided by GALA or its licensors. Moreover, You are prohibited from acquiring (or attempting to acquire) any such data, except for data explicitly provided or made accessible by GALA in conjunction with such services. You hereby agree to refrain from collecting, disseminating, or utilizing any such data for purposes not authorized by GALA.

e. Regulatory Compliance for Location-Based and Face Data Services in Applications

i. Applications employing location-based APIs or offering location-based services, including those that access face data, must adhere to stringent regulatory and consent frameworks. Such applications shall neither be designed nor marketed for the automated or autonomous control of vehicle behavior, nor for emergency or life-saving functionalities. Furthermore, the collection, transmission, or use of user location or face data must be preceded by clear user notification and the acquisition of explicit consent, ensuring data is used strictly within the consented scope and in compliance with this Agreement.

ii. Location-based services or functionalities within Applications, particularly those involving real-time navigation, must present users with a comprehensive End User License Agreement (EULA) that includes disclaimers about the potential inaccuracies of location data.

iii. Applications are expressly prohibited from disabling, overriding, or interfering with GALA-implemented system alerts or consent mechanisms intended to inform users about data collection or to obtain user consent. Descriptions within such mechanisms must accurately reflect the scope of data usage, and Developers must cease data collection if user consent is denied or withdrawn.

iv. Applications with face data must limit their use to functionalities directly relevant to the Application’s operation. Developers must transparently communicate the intended uses and disclosures of face data and secure clear, conspicuous consent before any data collection or usage. The use of face data for advertising, authentication, marketing, or any unrelated purposes is strictly prohibited. Developers must refrain from using face data to construct user profiles, identify users, or facilitate such activities by third parties. The transfer or sharing of face data is restricted to specific, consented application functions and must comply with both this Agreement and the provided Documentation.

f. Content Rights and Licensing

i. Content and Materials

a. Intellectual Property Compliance for Musical Content: It is imperative that Your Applications hold outright ownership or possess fully settled licenses for all utilized musical pieces and compositions, thereby exempting GALA from any obligations to disburse fees, royalties, or other compensations to You or any external parties. In instances of international distribution, it is crucial that such musical elements remain unassociated with any rights collection agencies, and any licensing agreements must be exclusive to Your Application. All additional materials within Your Application should either be your property or utilized under explicit permission from the rights holder. GALA reserves the right to decline applications containing materials considered unsuitable or offensive. Your Application may feature promotional activities, provided You are the exclusive promoter and ensure adherence to all pertinent regulations and disclosures, explicitly excluding GALA from any promotional involvement. Furthermore, should Your Application support charitable contributions, compliance with all applicable legal standards is mandatory, alongside a clear declaration that GALA is not the facilitating charity entity.

b. Ownership and Permission for Non-Musical Content: You are required to either possess outright ownership or secure explicit written authorization from the rightful owners for the use of any additional content encompassed within Your Application, including but not limited to text, graphics, images, photographs, and sounds. GALA reserves the right to reject Applications containing content that, in its judicious assessment, may be deemed objectionable or inappropriate, including materials that could be construed as obscene, pornographic, or defamatory.

c. Promotional Activities and Charitable Contributions: Your Application is permitted to incorporate functionalities related to promotional sweepstakes or contests, contingent upon You acting as the sole sponsor of such promotions. It is essential that You adhere to all pertinent legal requirements and complete any necessary registration processes within the jurisdictions where Your Application is made available and the promotion is conducted. You shall bear sole responsibility for the administration of the promotion and the distribution of prizes, and You must unequivocally declare in the official rules of each promotion that GALA holds no sponsorship or administrative responsibilities therein.

d. Should Your Application facilitate the provision for end-users to make charitable contributions via a direct link to Your website, You must comply with all relevant legal and regulatory mandates, which may include the issuance of receipts, within the jurisdiction where the charitable contributions are solicited. It is imperative that You clearly communicate that GALA does not serve as the fundraiser in such instances.

8. Acceptable Use Policy

a. GALA values transparency and is committed to providing Developers with the best experience levels. However, to protect GALA’s Developers and comply with our legal obligations, GALA reserves the right to take action, with or without advance notice, if GALA believes the Developer has violated this Agreement.

ii. If, pursuant to the applicable tax law (including international tax law), a withholding tax is or reasonably could be imposed on GALA’s payments to Developer as reasonably determined by GALA in good faith, then GALA may deduct from such payments the appropriate amount of withholding taxes that are required to be withheld according to Applicable Law and remit such withholding to the relevant taxing authority as reasonably determined by GALA in good faith. GALA shall indicate the amount of withholding, if any, in any statement or along with any payment hereunder and deliver to Developer upon request any withholding tax certificate or other evidence of payment received from the relevant tax authorities.

a. GALA Support to GALA Account Holders. Subject to Developer’s compliance with Section 12(b), GALA will provide commercially reasonable support for GALA Account Holders and GALA billing problems encountered by GALA Account Holders. GALA will provide this support at the same level that GALA provides customer support to customers of third party products that GALA distributes via GALA Store.

b. Developer Support to GALA. Developer shall provide GALA with the following support for the Applications: (a) deliver all Application Updates, either using GALA Services or updating its own server, made to the Applications, in beta and final forms, when available but in no event later than they are provided to any other third party; (b) promptly correct all material errors or defects in the Applications reported by GALA and deliver such corrections to GALA in the specified form, in a timely fashion; (c) provide such other reasonable additional support as GALA may reasonably request in order to maintain compatibility of the Applications with GALA Store and, if applicable, with any GALA Services used by the Application; and (d) promptly respond to GALA’s questions regarding the Applications.

13. Limitations of Liability

a. Limitation of Indirect Liability


b. Limitation of Amount of Liability


14 Disclosures and Risks

a. Notification

i. GALA notifies each Developer of certain disclosures and risks associated with blockchain NFT and digital rewards and their associated technology and protocols, including the following: GALA Platform is not an investment product, and no action, notice, communication by any means, or omission by GALA shall be understood or interpreted as such. GALA has no influence whatsoever on the GALAChain, the transactions and consensus protocols, or the NFTs or digital rewards, including the GALA Reward. Ownership of a GALA App or GALA Node or the use of GALA Platform does not represent or constitute any ownership right or stake, share or security, debt or equivalent right, or any right to receive any future revenue or form of participation in or relating to any blockchain or digital reward, including the GALAChain or GALA Reward.

b. Digital Rewards

i. Digital rewards are not considered legal tender, are not issued or backed by any government, and have fewer regulatory protections than traditional currency. Moreover, digital rewards are not insured against theft or loss by any insurance corporation.

c. Market Risk

i. The value of NFTs and digital rewards are derived from supply and demand in the global marketplace, which can rise or fall independent of any government currency. Having NFTs and digital rewards carries exchange rate and other types of risk. The value of NFTs and digital rewards may be derived from the continued willingness of market participants to exchange traditional government currency for digital rewards, which may result in the potential for permanent and total loss of value of a particular digital reward should the market disappear. The volatility and unpredictability of the price and value of NFTs and digital rewards, relative to government currency, may result in significant loss over a short period of time. GALA cannot guarantee or warrant the value of any NFT, digital reward or blockchain, including the GALAChain and GALA Reward, and explicitly warns the Developer that that there is no reason to believe that any NFT or blockchain reward will increase in value, and that they may hold no value, decrease in value, or entirely lose value.

d. Regulatory Risk

i. Legislative and regulatory changes or actions at the state, federal, or international level may adversely affect the use, transfer, exchange, and value of NFTs and blockchain rewards. The regulatory status of cryptographic tokens, digital assets and Blockchain Technology is unclear or unsettled in many jurisdictions. It is difficult to predict how or whether governmental authorities will regulate such technologies. It is likewise difficult to predict how or whether any governmental authority may make changes to existing laws, regulations and/or rules that will affect cryptographic tokens, digital assets, Blockchain Technology and its applications. Such changes could negatively impact the GALA Platform in various ways, including, for example, through a determination that any of the above are regulated financial instruments that require registration. GALA may cease any distribution of any of the above, the development of the GALA Platform, GALA Developer Portal or GALA Services, or cease operations in a jurisdiction in the event that governmental actions make it unlawful or commercially undesirable to continue to do so. The industry in which GALA operates is new, and may be subject to heightened oversight and scrutiny, including investigations or enforcement actions. There can be no assurance that governmental, quasi-governmental, regulatory or other similar types of (including banking) authorities will not examine the operations of GALA and/or pursue enforcement actions against GALA. Such governmental activities may or may not be the result of targeting GALA in particular. All of this may subject GALA to judgments, settlements, fines or penalties, or cause GALA to restructure its operations and activities or to cease offering certain products or GALA services, all of which could harm GALA’s reputation or lead to higher operational costs, which may in turn have a material adverse effect on GALA, GALA Platform, GALA Developer Portal and/or GALA Services.

e. Technology Risk

i. Virtual NFT and digital reward transactions may be irreversible and losses due to fraudulent or accidental transactions may not be recoverable. Some virtual transactions are deemed to be made when recorded on a public ledger, which may not necessarily be the date or time Your end user initiated the transaction. The nature of such virtual transactions may lead to an increased risk of fraud or cyber-attacks.

15 Changes to GALA Node Network

a. GALA and Developer recognize that from time to time amendments will be made to the GALA Node Network. GALA and Developer both specifically agree that GALA will, from time to time, present the GALA Node Network with Proposed Amendments that the GALA Node Network will then vote on whether to implement or not (the “Governance Vote”). The Developer understands that the Proposed Amendments will be made at the discretion of GALA, and GALA owes the Developer no duty or obligation to make proposals in its best interests. The Developer specifically understands that there may come a time when GALA proposes an amendment that is not in or in direct opposition to the Developer’s best interests, financial or otherwise (including, but not limited to a change in the distribution calculation), and the Developer has no legal recourse against GALA should any Proposed Amendment be presented, approved and implemented through the Governance Vote. The Developer’s only recourse is to vote against said Proposed Amendment. GALA and the Developer both agree that one such Proposed Amendment may be to change the specifications, including, but not limited to the internet connection, Random Access Memory, Central Processing Unit requirements, extra space, and any other requirements needed to run the GALA Nodes (the “Specifications”). GALA and Developer further agree that while the Specifications may be minimal, this is subject to change through the Proposed Amendment and the Governance Vote. While GALA does represent and covenant that the GALA Node will always be able to be run using the current specifications, GALA does not and cannot represent or covenant that any rewards earned (financial or otherwise) for doing so are not subject to change.

16 GALA App and Digital Wallets

a. GALA App must be used through a supported web browser on either desktop or mobile device. GALA will provide each GALA Account Holder with a GALA App. GALA will never take custody or control over any NFT or digital reward stored in a GALA Account Holder’s Digital Wallet. GALA will be not liable for acts or omissions of Metamask, Coinbase, or any other such third parties, nor will GALA be liable for any damage that you may suffer as a result of your transactions or any other interactions with any such third parties. GALA App is not a custodian, exchange or money transmitter, as further outlined in the Gala T&Cs.

17 Play to Earn Mechanisms

a. If the Developer elects to engage in any play to earn mechanism (including, but not limited to, any mechanism that permits the Developer to play any games or use any GALA Services on the GALA Platform), the Developer will be responsible to pay any and all sales, use, value-added or other taxes, duties and assessments now or hereinafter claimed or imposed by any governmental authority. The Developer will reimburse GALA for all national, federal, state, local, or other taxes and assessments of any jurisdiction, including value-added taxes and taxes as required by international tax treaties, customs or other import or export taxes, and amounts levied in lieu thereof based on charges set, services performed or payments made hereunder, as are now or hereafter may be imposed under the authority of any national, state, local or any other taxing jurisdiction; and (ii) shall not be entitled to deduct the amount of any such taxes, duties or assessments from payments made to us pursuant to this Agreement. Developer is solely responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to Developer and play to earn mechanisms, and any other transactions conducted by the Developer. GALA does not act as a withholding tax agent in any circumstances.

b. Developer further understands and acknowledges that GALA is not responsible, and Developer accepts sole responsibility for any and all missed GALA Reward or otherwise, regardless of the source of any error, fault or otherwise. Any and all play to earn mechanisms in place (including, but not limited to, the method, amounts or otherwise) are not permanent and may or may not be changed at the sole discretion of GALA at any time.

18 Term and Termination

a. General

i. GALA may terminate or suspend you as a Developer and access or rights to the GALA Developer Portal, GALA Platform and GALA Services at any time in GALA’s sole discretion. If GALA terminates you, GALA reserves the right to deny your reapplication at any time in GALA’s sole discretion. You may terminate your participation as a Developer at any time, for any reason, by notifying GALA in writing of your intent to do so.

b. Effect of Suspension
