PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY. THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN TATTME AND YOU WHICH GOVERNS YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF AND AGREEMENT TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE AND YOUR REPRESENTATION THAT YOU ARE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER. IF YOU OBJECT TO ANYTHING IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO USE THE SERVICES.

If you are accepting these Terms of Service and using the Services on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant to TattMe that you have full power and authority to do so.

The Services are protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties. Unauthorized reproduction or distribution of the Services, or any portion of them, may result in severe civil and criminal penalties, and will be prosecuted to the maximum extent possible under the law. The Services are licensed, not sold.

TattMe Services

TattMe is a platform that connects the best tattoo artists (collectively or individually, “Professionals”) providing tattooing services (“Tattoo Services”) with clients seeking such services (“Clients” or “you”). The Professionals and Clients are both users of the Services provided by TattMe and are hereinafter referred to collectively as “Users.”

TattMe solely provides a platform for Professionals and Clients to connect and serves only as a medium to facilitate the provision of Tattoo Services. TattMe does not provide or contract for Tattoo Services, and Professionals and Clients contract independently for the provision of Tattoo Services. Each Client is solely responsible for selecting the Professional, the Tattoo Services to be provided and the location at which Tattoo Services will be performed, whether on the premises of a Professional or at a site designated by the Client. Any decision by a Client to receive Tattoo Services or by a Professional to provide Tattoo Services is a decision made in such person’s sole discretion and at their own risk. All Users understand and acknowledge that (i) the Company does not conduct background checks on Clients and (ii) any provision of Services in a private location inherently increases the risks involved for both Clients and Professionals.

TattMe does not have control over the quality, suitability, reliability, timing, durability, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of any Tattoo Services provided by Professionals nor of the integrity, responsibility or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any Professionals or Clients. TattMe makes no representations or warranties whatsoever with respect to Tattoo Services offered or provided by Professionals or requested by Clients through use of the Services, whether in public, private, or offline interactions, or about the accreditation, registration or licensing of any Professional. You understand that TattMe does not routinely screen its Users, inquire into the background of its Users or attempt to verify information provided by any User. TattMe does not verify or confirm that any User is who they claim to be or is accurately representing themselves and does not verify or confirm any representations with respect to Tattoo Services. TattMe does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of this information or any information provided through the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, TattMe may, but is not obligated to, check the background and experience of Professionals via third-party background check services and first party interviews, including but not limited to a verification of identity and a comprehensive criminal background check, and may terminate a Professional based on any information discovered during such background checks and first party interviews. Whether or not TattMe conducts a background check or first party interview on a Professional, each Client must decide whether a Professional is suited to such Client’s needs and should exercise caution and common sense to protect their personal safety and property, just as they would when interacting with anyone they don’t know. NEITHER COMPANY NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SERVICES AND YOU HEREBY RELEASE THE COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS FROM ANY LIABILITY RELATED THERETO. COMPANY AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES.

In connection with certain services, including Tattoo Services, for which reservations are made available on the Services, some Professionals may require you to enter credit card or other payment information, and such Professionals may charge fees for reservations, including cancelled and missed appointments. The Professionals are only allowed to do so in accordance with any policy posted on such Professional’s TattMe page at the time of your booking. By entering your payment information when requested, you authorize TattMe and its payment processors to charge and process the fees and charges assessed in connection with your reservations in accordance with the policy described on the Professional’s TattMe page at the time of your booking. While TattMe takes what it believes to be reasonable efforts to ensure secure transmission of your information to third parties who assess and process payments, TattMe is not responsible for any fees or charges assessed by third parties or any errors in the processing of payments by third parties, including any errors that result from third-party negligence, improper transmission of payment information, your mistaken submission of payment information, or your submission of erroneous payment information.

If you cancel or don’t show up for an appointment, your credit card may still be charged in accordance with the cancellation policy of the Professional posted on such Professional’s TattMe page at the time of your booking, at the Professional’s discretion. TattMe facilitates the payment transaction per these Terms between you and each Professional, but is not responsible for mediating any resulting disputes. TattMe has no obligation to provide refunds or credits, but may grant them in extenuating circumstances, as a result of specific refund guarantee promotions, or to correct any errors made by TattMe, in each case in TattMe’s sole discretion.

Although the Services are intended to provide a Professional’s availability in real-time, it is possible that a scheduling conflict may occur that requires the Professional to reschedule your reservation. Creation of a reservation using the Services is not a guarantee that the Professional will honor the reservation as scheduled.

TattMe cannot guarantee availability of the Services to any User.

TattMe does not independently confirm that Professionals are licensed to perform the Tattoo Services offered by them on our Website or mobile application. However, when Professionals create accounts with TattMe, Professionals certify to TattMe that they are a licensed professional, or if the Professional is a tattoo shop, merchant or other business entity, all of such Professional’s employees, independent contractors or agents who are providing Tattoo Services each are a licensed professional, that they are legally able to provide the Tattoo Services they offer to Clients on our Website or mobile application, and that their business information is correctly represented on TattMe. TattMe reserves the right to remove or hide any incorrect, out of date, or illegal information from profiles, as well as remove or hide the entire profile itself at any time.

Ideally, the Account ID you choose will be a reasonably descriptive name that clearly identifies you. We reserve the right to remove or reclaim any Account ID if we believe, in our sole discretion, the Account ID is inappropriate, offensive or confusing or potentially violates the rights of a third party (such as when a trademark owner provides notice that an Account ID is similar to the trademark and the Account ID does not closely relate to the User’s actual name or trademark rights).

We will not be liable to you for compensation, reimbursement, or damages in connection with your use of the Services, or in connection with any termination or suspension of the Services.

TattMe is not liable for any losses relating to chargebacks, fraudulent charges, or other actions by any User that are deceptive, fraudulent or otherwise invalid as determined in TattMe’s sole discretion (“Fraudulent Actions”).

This service may require users to submit personal information, including government-issued identification documents. By using our app, you consent to the collection and verification of your identity information as part of our commitment to maintaining a safe and trusted environment for all users. Please be assured that your privacy and data security are of utmost importance to us, and we handle your information in accordance with our Privacy Policy and all applicable laws and regulations.

Payment Processing Services

TattMe’s Role

The Services allow Clients to pay and Professionals to accept payments for Tattoo Services, including Card-based payments initiated with Cards bearing the trademarks of MasterCard International Inc. and Visa Inc. (collectively, the “Networks”) through a payment service provider retained by the Company (the “PSP”). We are not a bank and we do not offer banking services as defined by the United States Department of Treasury.

TattMe facilitates the processing of payments Professionals receive from Clients. This means that we collect, analyze and relay information generated in connection with these payments.

Authorization

You authorize us to process payments in accordance with the Services, using the payment information you have supplied. Users of the Service will be required to provide their credit card or bank account details to Company and the PSP.

Within 24 hours after you receive confirmation through the Service or via email that a Tattoo Service has been completed, you agree to authorize the Company to provide your payment details to the PSP for processing of payments, out of pocket expenses owed to a Professional, any tip or gratuity, if applicable, and the service fees and trust and safety fees owed to Company for the use of the Service. You may be charged a cancellation fee through the PSP if you book a Tattoo Service, but cancel it before it is completed.

Third Party Payment Service Provider

Users will be required to provide their credit card or bank account details to the Company and the PSP. As a condition of TattMe enabling payment processing services through the PSP, you agree to provide TattMe accurate and complete information about you and/or your business, and you authorize TattMe to share it and transaction information related to your use of the PSP services.

Notwithstanding any amounts owed to Company hereunder, COMPANY DOES NOT PROCESS PAYMENT FOR ANY SERVICES. To facilitate payment for the Service via bank account, credit card, or debit card, we use Stripe, Inc. and its affiliates (“Stripe”), a third-party payment processor (collectively, “Payment Processors”). The payment processing services are provided by Stripe and are subject to the Stripe terms and conditions and other policies available at https://stripe.com/legal and Stripe’s Global Privacy Policy available at: https://stripe.com/privacy (collectively, the “Stripe Agreements”), and the other applicable Payment Processor’s terms and conditions, privacy policy, and all other relevant agreements (described below) (collectively, the “Payment Processor Agreements”). By agreeing to these Terms of Service, users that use the payment functions of the Service also agree to be bound by the Stripe Agreements, and the other applicable Payment Processor Agreements, for the payment function the user is using, as the same may be modified by Stripe, from time to time. You hereby authorize Stripe, to store and continue billing your specified payment method even after such payment method has expired, to avoid interruptions in payment for your use of the Service. Please contact Stripe for more information. Company assumes no liability or responsibility for any payments you make through the Service

Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion (but not the obligation), to (i) place on hold any payment and out of pocket expenses, or (ii) refund, provide credits or arrange for the PSP to do so.

Unauthorized or Illegal Use

We may decide not to authorize or settle any transaction that you submit to us if we believe in our sole discretion that the transaction is in violation of these Terms of Service or any other TattMe agreement, or that it exposes Professionals, other TattMe Users, the PSP or TattMe to harm. Harm includes fraud and other criminal acts as determined by TattMe in our sole discretion. If we reasonably suspect that your Account has been used for an unauthorized, illegal, or criminal purpose, you give us express authorization to share information about you, your Account, and any of your transactions with law enforcement.

Accepted Cards

TattMe works with any US-issued and most non-US issued credit, debit, prepaid, or gift cards (“Cards”) with a Visa, MasterCard, or Discover logo. We may remove or add Cards that we accept at any time without prior notice. We will generally only process Cards that receive an authorization from the applicable Network and Card issuer.

TattMe Fees

If applicable, you agree to pay the applicable fees listed on our Fee Schedule available at https://www.tattme.app for use of the Services (“Fees”). Subject to the terms of these Terms of Service, we reserve the right to change our Fees immediately upon notice. You must agree to the change in Fees to continue to use the Services. To withdraw your consent, you will need to close your Account. All balances and all Fees, charges, and payments collected or paid through the Services are denominated in US dollars.

Customer Care

Professionals, as a separate entity from TattMe, are solely responsible for all customer service issues relating to such Professional’s goods or services, including without limitation, any Tattoo Services, pricing, order fulfillment, order or appointment cancellation, returns, refunds and adjustments, rebates, functionality and warranty, and feedback concerning experiences with such Professional, any personnel, their policies or processes. As between Clients and TattMe, TattMe is solely responsible for customer service issues relating to any Account, payment, Card processing, debiting or crediting.

Professional’s Loyalty Programs

Professionals may offer loyalty programs to Clients. If a Professional offers such a loyalty program, the Professional (and not TattMe) is responsible for ensuring that its program and any associated rewards are compliant with applicable federal and state laws, including laws governing prepaid cards and special offers such as rebates and coupons. The Professionals agree to make available to Clients any terms and conditions applicable to such Professional’s loyalty program.

TattMe Programs

The Company may from time to time provide certain programs, promotions, opportunities, sweepstakes and contests to Clients (“TattMe Programs”), descriptions of which can be found at https://www.tattme.app. TattMe may at any time in its sole discretion, change, modify, add to, supplement or delete the terms and conditions of any TattMe Program, including without limitation changing the name, fees and eligibility requirements to participate in such TattMe Program. The Company will endeavor to notify you of any material changes by email, but will not be liable for any failure to do so. In any case, the liability of any of Company’s partners pursuant to such TattMe Programs shall be limited as described in these Terms of Service, including but not limited to Section 12 of these Terms of Service.

The TattMe Programs may, among other things, offer certain benefits to Clients for referring Professionals or Clients to the Services. The TattMe Programs may offer certain premium services for additional fees to certain Users. Currently, each User will have the choice to join the TattMe Program, however, in the future, the participation in certain of the TattMe Programs may become mandatory for certain Users.

The Company’s general terms and conditions for promotional offers (including offers where you must redeem a promotional code as part of the offer) that are not otherwise described or made available on the Website or mobile application can be found https://www.tattme.app.

If any future changes to these Terms of Service are unacceptable to you or cause you to no longer be in compliance with these Terms of Service, you must terminate, and immediately stop using, the Services.
