THE COWORKING SOCIETY MEMBERS’ USER AGREEMENT

This is a User Agreement is between the COWORKING SOCIETY LLC (“CSLLC”) and a Member of the Coworking Society Community (henceforward “Member”). This agreement specifically pertains to the use of the Coworking Society’s space at 118 S. Main St., Ann Arbor, MI 48104 (“Workantile”), and its Events, to which any Member might bring Guests.

THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT WILL BE UPDATED PERIODICALLY BY CSLLC. EACH MEMBER WILL BE NOTIFIED OF THESE CHANGES MORE THAN ONE BILLING CYCLE BEFORE THEY GO INTO EFFECT, AND CAN EITHER 1) SIGN THEM ELECTRONICALLY WHEN THEY GO INTO EFFECT, OR 2) CHOOSE TO TERMINATE ONGOING MEMBERSHIP IF THEY SO WISH. BARRING OUTRAGEOUS CIRCUMSTANCES, THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT BE MODIFIED MORE THAN ONCE PER CALENDAR QUARTER

AGREEMENT

Member is permitted access (corresponding to his/her membership level; please see MEMBERSHIP SPECIFICS below) to the Workantile space for the purposes of:

  • Gathering socially with other Members and their Guests
  • Conducting business, including meeting with limited numbers of Guests consistent with the Expectations of Members
  • Hosting private or public Events and meetings consistent with the Expectations of Members
  • Reserving conference/phone rooms
  • Accessing the Internet via wifi or wired Ethernet
  • Using the kitchen and bathroom
  • 24x7 access to these community resources (corresponding to his/her membership level)

Members are solely responsible for loss of and/or damage to their equipment and belongings. Aside from snacks provided by Workantile, all food and drink (including food at parties, lunches, beverages, etc.) consumed socially on the premises is considered to be offered by one Member or Guest to another, and is not in any way warranted or monitored by the CSLLC itself. Each Member agrees to indemnify and hold CSLLC harmless from and against all liability of every kind and nature arising out of food and drink provided by such Member to Guests and other Members.

Prior to signing this agreement, Member must present a valid credit card or arrange for EFT (electronic funds transfer) to cover monthly membership dues, which will be charged membership dues each month (corresponding to his/her membership level). Prepayment is not permitted. Cases in which automated payment is denied by the card issuer will be re-billed immediately after notifying the Member, and a third failure will terminate Member’s rights under this agreement.

Members may terminate their membership at any time. Members must notify CSLLC of termination five or more days before the end of the month or they will be billed for the following month.

Members whose membership is terminated by the CSLLC will have their current month’s dues refunded. All outgoing Members are asked to do the following within 2 weeks:

  1. Return their RFID or physical key (if any)
  2. Return their Workantile AATA bus pass (this is a condition of our contract with AATA; after 2 weeks the pass must be recovered or deactivated)
  3. Empty their locker (any items remaining after 2 weeks will be donated to a charitable organization)
  4. File a change of address with the USPS (any mail arriving after 2 weeks will be returned to sender)

Members who terminate their membership must wait at least six (6) months before re-applying and must complete a new Trial Membership.

Circumstances that will result in the CSLLC terminating membership:

  • Abusive behavior or any behavior inconsistent with the Expectations of Members—which may be revised from time to time
  • Behavior that the CSLLC reasonably believes will result in harm to any Member, Guest, or other
  • Substantial complaints from other Members or Guests
  • Independent decision of CSLLC based on economic or other circumstances

CSLCC shall have absolute discretion in determining whether a Membership should be terminated.

Member may also change their level of membership. Members must notify CSLLC of a change of membership level five or more days before the end of the month in order for the change to take effect in the following month.
