In the event an Applicant is selected for consideration by Misfits Gaming (each a “Selectee”) in its sole and absolute discretion, such selection shall not (i) have the effect of creating an obligation to distribute any portion of the Creator Fund to said Selectee, or (ii) otherwise create any form of partnership, joint venture, corporation, or company, revenue sharing obligation, obligation to fund a venture, or other form of legal relationship with said Selectee.
For the avoidance of doubt, the opportunity to apply to the Creator Fund does not constitute a binding offer by us to offer access to the Creator Fund.
Upon being selected Misfits Gaming may choose to contact Selectee to negotiate the terms of any access to, or distribution of, the Creator Fund. Nothing in this Agreement or any communication between Misfits Gaming and Selectee creates any obligation to agree to terms relating to the Creator Fund.
