D-Drops Terms of Use

Terms and Conditions

Welcome! We are glad to have you join us in our quest to take over the world with real-world treasure hunts. However, before we can embark on this journey together, we must agree on some terms and conditions. These terms and conditions are described in the subsequent parts of this document and apply to all our apps and services.

Henceforth, the terms and conditions as laid out in this document are referred to as “the Terms.” Lost Dutchman Labs B.V. is referred to as “the Labs” or “we,” and our apps and services are referred to as “services.” These Terms are entered into between you and Lost Dutchman Labs B.V.

By using our services, you agree to our Terms. If you don’t agree to the Terms, you may not use our services. The Terms described in this document are subject to change at any time. If any changes are made to the Terms, we will notify you by sending an email with the new Terms to the email address you provided during the sign-up process. Any newly added or modified terms take immediate effect. It is important to always read the new or modified terms before continuing to use our services. If you continue to use our services, you agree to the modified Terms. If you do not agree to the new Terms, you may not use our services.

1. Who May Use the App and Services

  • Using any techniques to alter or falsify a device’s location


While using our services, always be aware of your surroundings and prioritize your safety and that of others around you. Using our services is at your own risk. Do not violate any applicable law, regulation, or event policies, and do not encourage or enable others to do so.

3. Account Suspensions or Termination

The Labs may suspend or terminate your access to and use of the services at our sole discretion, at any time, and without notice to you, including if you fail to comply with the Terms or if we suspect any unlawful activity associated with your in-game account.

4. Limited License to User

Subject to your compliance with these Terms, the Labs grants you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, non-sublicensable license to download and install a copy of the Apps on a mobile device and to run such copy solely for your own personal, non-commercial purposes. Except as expressly permitted in these Terms or under applicable law, you may not:

  • Copy, modify, or create derivative works based on the Apps

  • Distribute, transfer, sublicense, lease, lend, or rent the Apps to any third party

  • Reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Apps

  • Make the functionality of the Apps available to multiple users through any means

The Labs reserves all rights in and to the Apps not expressly granted to you under these Terms.

5. Rights Granted by You to the Labs

By making any User Content available through the services, you grant the Labs a nonexclusive, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual license (or, if not permitted under applicable law, a license for the whole duration, including any extension thereof) to use, copy, modify, create derivative works based upon, publicly display, publicly perform, market, promote, and distribute your User Content in connection with operating and providing the services and content to you and others.

By accepting these Terms, you allow the Labs to benefit freely from the above rights, including but not limited to:

  • The right to reproduce User Content by any means and in any form

  • The right to publicly or privately broadcast or make available the User Content (or any product incorporating the User Content), in return for payment or free of charge, by any means or process known or unknown at the present time, including via Internet, pay-per-view, pay-per-play, theatrical or television broadcasting, DVD, and print

  • The right to use the User Content for demonstration, promotion, and advertising for all the Labs' services

  • The right to produce or order the production of any new product or service from the User Content or from any product incorporating or exploiting the User Content, either as it stands or modified by the Labs or any outside party of its choice

You are solely responsible for all your User Content. You represent and warrant that you own all your User Content or have all rights necessary to grant us the license rights in your User Content under these Terms. You also represent and warrant that neither your User Content, nor your use and provision of your User Content to be made available through the services, nor any use of your User Content by the Labs on or through the services will infringe, misappropriate, or violate a third party’s intellectual property rights, rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you also agree not to exercise your moral rights (or equivalent rights under applicable laws), such as your right to be identified as the author of any of the User Content, against the Labs or any third party designated by the Labs.

6. Limitation of Liability

To the extent permitted under applicable law, neither the Labs nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the services or content will be liable to you for any indirect, incidental, special, punitive, exemplary, or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure, or the cost of substitute services, arising out of or in connection with these Terms, the use or inability to use the services or content, or from any communications, interactions, or meetings with other users of the services or persons with whom you communicate or interact as a result of your use of the services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability, or any other legal theory, and whether or not the Labs has been advised of the possibility of such damages, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction.

To the extent permitted under applicable law, in no event will the Labs' total liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms, an event, or the use of or inability to use the services or content exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000), or, if contracting with the Labs International Limited, one thousand pounds (£1,000). The exclusions and limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between the Labs and you.

7. Dispute Resolution

You agree that disputes between you and the Labs will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration, and you waive your right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. This notice does not apply:

  1. If you are a resident of the EEA or any jurisdiction that does not allow this arbitration agreement

  2. If you opt out of arbitration

  3. To certain types of disputes described in Section 13.1, “Arbitration,” below.

More details on the arbitration process can be found [here/link].

8. Private Keys

When you create an account in the D-Drops app, a new Ethereum account is generated for you. The private key of this account is securely stored on your device. The Labs has no way of retrieving or restoring your private key. You are encouraged to access the private key through your device, write it down on a piece of paper, and store it safely.

In the event of loss of funds, the Labs is not responsible and is not obliged to refund the customer in any way.

9. Currency and Loot or Prizes

The ownership conditions of digital currency and other prizes such as tickets, coupons, and physical items are described below.

Any digital currency and/or other digital assets earned through the D-Drops app by playing the game are the property of D-Drops up until the moment they leave the in-app wallet. No ownership rights are granted to the user up until this moment.

D-Drops is not responsible for any loss of funds and/or loss of other digital assets that may occur due to in-app wallet errors, human error (e.g., losing one’s phone, funds being stolen), or software errors.

10. Where Does the Money Come From?

All prizes, digital or physical, are funded by our treasure wallet. Through our business model, we generate revenue, and a portion of this revenue is used to fill the treasure wallet.

11. Updates and Communication

You will be notified of any changes to these Terms via email. The most up-to-date version of the Terms can always be found [here/link].
