General Terms and Conditions
- Membership Agreement
The Haven was created to foster and support a collaborative environment by providing its members with space, learning, and community. By joining The Haven, our members agree to certain rules for our community. The goal of The Haven is to support each other, cultivate what’s next in each of our work, collaborate, learn, and grow, all of which requires a commitment to follow the Community Rules and Values. Any questions about this Agreement, or any rules should be addressed by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
This agreement remains in full force and effect whilst your membership is in effect, whilst you use the Service, and thereafter as permitted by law.
The Haven reserves the right to terminate or modify your membership. The Haven will give members 30-day notice if the membership model changes, pricing changes, access/hours change, or if there is a change to the individual’s membership, including the possibility that the work-style is not a fit for a co-working environment. Note that this 30-day notice is not granted in the case of unkind or illegal behavior as stated in Section 9 – Termination.
By using the Service, you agree to the following:
Kindness is the first and most important mantra for The Haven. Behave well and treat others the way you would want to be treated. Support others’ ideas, efforts, and work. Abide by our Ethos and Community Commitments as stated in The Haven Manual.
Believe in yourself, believe in others, and especially believe in the collaborative power of the The Haven community. Share. Collaborate. Work hard. Have fun. Improve The Haven for all. Give input to make The Haven better.
- Membership Details and Access
The Haven’s membership includes access to The Haven workspace specific times per week, depending on your membership plan. The Haven may be bustling with people, and some days, it may be quiet. Workdays are non-transferable on monthly membership plans. In other words, if you don’t use all of your Haven days one month, you cannot rollover your work days to the following month.
We will do our best to notify members of changes to the Rules and this Agreement. We will strive to keep an up-to-date copy of this agreement in the Online Member Area of The Haven’s website.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service. If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us at email@example.com.
When signing up for a flex membership at The Haven, you must pay for your first and last month. Your last month will also double as a security deposit. We do not anticipate needing to subtract from your security deposit unless you cause damage beyond that expected from normal business use and wear & tear. (For example, throwing a chair against the wall.) Barring such an extreme circumstance, your last month’s rent will be used to pay your final month of membership after providing 30-days notice that you wish to discontinue your membership at The Haven.
For those members who signed up before The Haven opened, you have already paid your first month’s rent. Therefore, upon opening you must pay your last months’ rent/ security deposit. Then, one month after we open, we will auto-draft your second month’s rent. (For example, if a part-time flex member pre-paid their first month’s rent of $249.00 in July, then on the date we open, our system will auto-draft their last month’s rent/security deposit of $249.00. One month later, our system will auto-draft the second month’s rent of $249.00. This will continue for each month until you give notice. For your final month of membership, no payment will be auto-drafted, as it has already been pre-paid.)
Monthly membership fees are automatically drafted on the 1st of each month. We must have an ACH or credit card on file for all monthly recurring payments and account charges. If payment information is not up to date and payment does not go through, it is your responsibility to update your membership profile with current payment information within a week or else your membership will be revoked and given to the next person on the waiting list. In case of non-payment, Full-time and Private Suite members will automatically lose access via the app on their phone after one week.
Monthly membership plans are always prorated your first month. You will then be billed on the 1st of the month ongoing. You will be charged a prorated first month and full last month at time of sign up. If you decide to upgrade or downgrade your membership plan, we will credit your last month’s payment and start you on your new plan on the 1st of the following month. You will be charged for your 1st month plus your last month at time of membership change.
All memberships (excluding private offices) are month-to-month and require no long-term commitment. Membership payments are not refundable once you have started using The Haven and we require a 30-day notice to cancel your membership.
We value your membership and your contributions to The Haven community, but we understand that circumstances can change and you may need to leave The Haven. At least a 6-month commitment to The Haven is highly encouraged as it is our goal is to build and foster community among our members.
Members are required to give The Haven 30-days’ notice to cancel a membership. To cancel your membership, please submit a membership cancellation request in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that annual prepaid memberships are non-refundable, cannot be paused, and do not auto renew. Long term membership plans cannot be put on hold and must be used for a continuous annual term.
The Haven reserves the right to terminate a membership at our sole discretion.
