We may revise these Terms at any time by amending this page and posting about such change on our Site. Please check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we made, as they are binding on you if you continue to access and use our Site or the Services after the date of the change.
ACCESSING OUR SITE
Our Site is made available free of charge.
We may update our Site from time to time, and may change the content at any time.
We do not guarantee that our Site, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of our Site or Services at any time and at our discretion, without notice. We will not be liable to you if for any reason our Site is unavailable at any time or for any period. We may also impose limits on certain services, features or functions, or restrict access to parts of our Site and Services at any time without notice or liability.
You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our Site.
You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our Site through your internet connection are aware of these Terms and other applicable terms and conditions listed above, and that they comply with them.
You may browse our Site as a guest. However, in order to be able to shortlist office space via the Site, you must become a registered user (a “Registered User”).
In order to register as a Registered User, you must be aged 18 or over at the point of registration and must provide all the information required on the registration form, including a username and password. The registration process may require you to verify the email address that you have provided to us.
We have the right to disable any Registered User’s username or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms and/or if we believe that your account is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner.

If you would like to register with us to be able to make your office Space available for booking via the Site, please email us at email@example.com.
SPACE LISTINGS ON OUR SITE
Our Site allows providers of office space (“Office Space Providers”) to list details about the office space they have available (a “Space“) and allows prospective Registered Users to search for available Spaces. Spaces can be booked by Registered Users online, subject to the availability of the Space and compliance with these Terms.
In listing a Space on our Site, we are simply providing a means for Office Space Providers to find someone to use their Space. Our listing of a Space on the Site is not, and should not be taken to mean, that we are in any way endorsing, guaranteeing, underwriting, or giving any warranty or representation in relation to that Space.
Information about Spaces displayed on our Site, including price of Spaces, are liable to change at any time. Despite our best efforts, some of the information on our Site regarding booking prices for Spaces or availability of Spaces may be incorrect. We expressly reserve the right to correct any such errors on our Site and/or on bookings which have not yet been completed.
Information about Spaces is provided to us by the applicable Office Space Provider. We are not responsible for the accuracy of any listing of a Space.
AGREEMENTS BETWEEN REGISTERED USERS & OFFICE SPACE PROVIDERS
We facilitate the entering into of an office facilities agreement for a Space (an “Office Facilities Agreement”) between a Registered User and an Office Space Provider. The booking period under the Office Facilities Agreements will depend on the Registered User’s need and the availability of the Space.
We do not own or manage, nor do we contract for, any Space listed on our Site. The Office Facilities Agreement is a contractual agreement entered into directly between a Registered User and an Office Space Provider. Office Space Providers give us authority to act as their agents and to enter into contracts on their behalf; however, we will not be a party to the Office Facilities Agreement or bound by its terms. All aspects of a transaction between a Registered User and Office Space Provider, including (but not limited to) the quality, condition, safety or legality of the Space advertised and the ability of each party to enter into a transaction are solely the responsibility of each Registered User and Office Space Provider. We shall not be liable for an Office Space Provider or a Registered User’s breach of an Office Facilities Agreement.
Each Registered User of our Site should seek independent legal advice before entering into an Office Facilities Agreement, and hereby warrants and represents to us and to each Office Space Provider which is a party to an Office Facilities Agreement with them that they have done so.
REFERRALS TO OFFICE SPACE PROVIDERS
If you are a Registered User who would like to book a Space for an extended period or would like us to assist you in finding a suitable Space by helping you liaise with one or more Office Space Providers directly, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Site so that we can put you in contact with the Office Space Provider directly. By contacting us and making such a request, you consent to us sharing your contact details with the Office Space Provider (or an alternative Office Space Provider offering similar Space). You also acknowledge that, in return for passing on your details to an Office Space Provider at your request, the Office Space Provider may pay us a referral fee.
We are not responsible for and shall not be liable for any negotiations, representations made or contracts entered into between you and an Office Space Provider after we have referred you.
