Mesh Terms of Service
Effective Date: September 1, 2021
Mesh Digital Services, Inc. (“Mesh”, “we,” “us” or “our”) is excited to share its services with you. These Terms of Service (“Agreement”) outline our agreement with respect to the use of our technology platform, mobile application, and any related website or service to which this Agreement is linked or is referenced (collectively the “Services”).
1. YOUR AGREEMENT TO THE MESH TERMS OF SERVICE
Before accessing and using the Services, please read this entire Agreement carefully. This is a binding agreement between Mesh and you. After reading this agreement, if you use the Services you agree that you have read and understood this Agreement and any policies we refer to below. You also confirm that you are at least eighteen years of age and are legally capable of entering into a binding agreement. The Mesh Services are not available to any individual under the age of eighteen.
This Agreement contains sections entitled “DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES,” “LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY” and “DISPUTE RESOLUTION.” Please read these carefully, as they limit Mesh’s liability to you and affect how disputes are resolved. If you do not agree to any term of this Agreement, please do not use the Services.
The Effective Date of this Agreement is set forth above. If we decide to change these Terms of Service, we will post the new version here so that you will be able to review the new terms. We may change this Agreement at our discretion and at any time, so please review this page periodically. If we make material changes to this Agreement, we will post those changes here and will try to notify you via email or by posting a notice on our home page. Your continued use of the Services after the Effective Date or after we’ve notified you of changes constitutes your acceptance of this Agreement as well as any changes. If you decide that you no longer agree to these Terms of Service (as amended), you may no longer use the Service and you may close your account. Should we update or change the Services (or any mobile application), this Agreement will continue to apply to that updated service or application.
2. MESH SERVICES
Mesh offers a seamless, frictionless way for professionals, consumers, and other Mesh customers to verify professional licenses and certifications. Mesh provides this service by automatically checking professionals’ certification statuses with governmental and other institutions both in real-time and on an agreed schedule. The Mesh Services allow professionals, businesses, and consumers to have the assurance that all required licenses and certifications are up to date without the need to manually search multiple databases or governmental websites to find accurate information.
In order to provide the Services, Mesh must exchange information and data with third-party services. Please review the Mesh Privacy Statement for a thorough description of how Mesh collects, uses, and shares data in order to provide the Services. By using the Mesh Services, you acknowledge and agree with the Mesh Privacy Statement and consent to the use of your data as described in that Privacy Statement.
Mesh also provides its website (www.mesh.id) to describe its services, provide customers with information, etc. Mesh and its licensors (if any) retain full and complete title to all information and materials provided on or through or submitted to the Services, including any artwork, graphics, text, video and audio clips, trademarks, logos, and other content (collectively, “Mesh Content”). The name "Mesh" and the Mesh Logo, and other trademarks or service marks used in the Services are trademarks/service marks of Mesh or its affiliates and may not be used in connection with the products or services of others in any manner that is likely to cause confusion. All other trademarks not owned by Mesh that appear in the Services (if any) are the property of their respective owners.
Except for content that is in the public domain or unless Mesh provides you with written authorization to do so, you may not:
- Incorporate any Mesh Content into any other work (such as your own website) or use Mesh Content publicly or commercially.
- Copy, modify, reproduce, adapt, reverse engineer, distribute, frame, republish, upload, display, post, transmit, transfer, license or sell Mesh Content in any form or by any means; or

3. USING THE SERVICES
In order to use the Services (other than the general website), you must create an account (“Account”). You must maintain your Account information to ensure that it remains current, complete, and accurate. If you provide untrue, incomplete, misleading, or inaccurate information, we have the right to terminate your Account and your use of the Services.

All charges are billed by and payable to your wireless service provider. Text message services (if any) are provided on an “as is” basis and may not be available in all areas at all times. By agreeing to receive text messages, you understand and agree that we may use an automatic dialing system to deliver text messages to you and that your consent to receive text messages is not required as a condition of purchase for any goods or services.
We do not guarantee the availability of the Services. Mesh may from time to time perform upgrades, updates, or otherwise make the Services unavailable.
