You understand and agree that once a Customer requests a booking of your Venue, the price for such booking may not be altered. By creating a Listing you represent and warrant you have sufficient rights in and to the Venue to participate in the Service as a Venue Owner, and your participation in the Service as a Venue Owner will not violate or result in the breach of any agreement between you and any third party, including any lease agreement or other agreement relating to the Venue and that any Venue you offer for bookings hereunder is (i) free of any known conditions or defects that would pose a hazard to or risk the safety of any Member; (ii) clean and ready to use at the start of each booking period; (iii) in a safe condition and in compliance with law and any applicable building requirements; (iv) does not violate any lease or other agreements relating to Venue or any building policies, and you are solely responsible for and shall indemnify ShareDesk against any fines, losses or other liability arising from such violations; (v) the Venue will be available to the Member at the time specified time agreed to between you and the Member.

You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you further represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or Customer booking of, a Venue in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Venue included in a Listing you post, including zoning laws and laws governing bookings of business offices and other properties, and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that ShareDesk assumes no responsibility for a Venue Host’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations. ShareDesk reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that ShareDesk, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services.

You understand and agree that ShareDesk does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for you as a Venue Host. If a Customer requests a booking of your Venue and attends at your Venue, any agreement you enter into with such Customer is between you and the Customer and ShareDesk is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ShareDesk serves as the limited authorized agent of the Venue Host for the purpose of accepting payments from Customers on behalf of the Venue Host and is responsible for transmitting such payments to the Venue Host. Each Venue Host is responsible for determining applicable Taxes and for including any applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings (see additional information under “Taxes” below).

You acknowledge and agree that, as a Venue Host, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who work at or are otherwise present at the Venue at your request or invitation, excluding the Customer (and the individuals the Customer invites to the Venue, if applicable).

ShareDesk recommends that Venue Owners obtain appropriate insurance for their Venues. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Venue carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Customers (and the individuals the Customer invites to the Venue, if applicable) while at your Venue.

6. Member Reviews and Feedback
Both Members and Venue Owners may submit feedback of the Service following the completion of a Venue booking transaction. You acknowledge and agree that other users may publicly post ratings and reviews of you or your Venue, as applicable, and that ShareDesk may, but is not obligated to, monitor such postings and is not responsible in any manner for such ratings and reviews, and you hereby release ShareDesk from any and all claims, causes of actions, obligations or liabilities arising from or relating to such ratings and reviews.

7. Instant Booking and Booking Requests 
When you, as a Venue Host, complete your Listing by submitting all the required Listing information, it will not appear as LIVE on the Site until it has been reviewed and verified by ShareDesk. During the review process, you may be contacted by ShareDesk and requested to submit additional information or complete additional steps in order for your listing to be Listed. SHAREDESK RESERVES THE RIGHT TO ACCEPT OR DECLINE VENUE LISTINGS AT ITS OWN DISCRETION.

When you finalize a Listing and the Listing has been reviewed and accepted by ShareDesk and the Venue appears LIVE on the site, your Venue spaces will be, by default, available for “Instant Booking.” This means that a member may book your Venue automatically on the Site without needing to submit a Booking Request form to you. You have the option of de-activating or opting-out of the Instant Booking option any of the Venue spaces listed on the marketplace. If you choose to deactivate the Instant Booking option, you can opt into a “Booking Request” system for all or some of the spaces within your Venue(s). Using this system will enable you to review a Booking before it is confirmed. The Booking Request system is a tool ShareDesk makes available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm for booking for your Venue.

When you opt-out of Instant Booking and opt into a booking request system, you may choose to include certain requirements that must be met by the Members who are eligible to request a booking of your Venue, including requiring Members to have a profile picture or verified phone number, in order to book your Venue. Any Member wishing to book Venues included in Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements. More information on how to set such requirements is available via the “FAQ/ Knowledgebase” section of the Site.

8. ShareDesk Optix
ShareDesk Optix provides Venue Hosts with applications, and tools to manage their Venue(s) and offer membership plans to Users. Specific Optix Venue services and features are described on the ShareDesk Optix marketing pages. Optix fees are described below.

9. No Endorsement
ShareDesk does not warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of information on the Site or Application. Any reliance you place on such information is strictly at your own risk. We disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by you or any other visitor to the Website, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents. ShareDesk does not endorse any Members or any Venues. In addition, although these Terms require Members to provide accurate information, we do not attempt to confirm, and do not confirm, any Member’s purported identity. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others who you contact via the Site, Application and Services. We are not responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members.

By using the Site, Application or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from ShareDesk with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Site and Services regarding any bookings or Listings made by you. This limitation does not apply to any claim by a Venue Host against ShareDesk regarding the remittance of payments received from a Customer by ShareDesk on behalf of a Venue Host, which is governed by the limitations in the section below entitled “Limitation of Liability”.

10. Bookings and Financial Terms for Venue Hosts
A. Booking requests
If you are a Venue Host and a booking is requested for your Venue via the Site, Application and Services, you must either confirm or reject the booking within 24 hours of when the booking is requested (as determined by ShareDesk in its sole discretion) or the booking request will be automatically cancelled. When a booking is requested via the Site, Application or Services, we will share with you (i) the first name of the Customer who has requested the booking, (ii) a link to the Customer’s ShareDesk Account profile page, (iii) the names of any accounts or social login they used to create an account with ShareDesk, (iv) an indication that the name that the Customer provided to ShareDesk when the Customer became a Member matches the name that the Customer provided to the SNSs to which the Customer has linked his or her ShareDesk Account, and (v) an indication of whether the customer has verified their email and phone number and any social accounts via 3rd party applications so that you can view such information before confirming or rejecting the booking. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject a booking of a Venue within such 24 hour period, any amounts collected by ShareDesk for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Customer’s credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released. When you confirm a booking requested by a Customer, ShareDesk will send you an email, text message or message via the Application confirming such booking, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application and Services.

B. Fees, Commission, and Payment
The fees displayed in each Listing are comprised of the Venue Fees (defined below). Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Venue Fees. The Venue Fees and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “Total Fees”. The amounts due and payable by a Customer solely relating to a Venue Owner’s Venue are the “Venue Fees”. ShareDesk collects a 20% commission from Venue Hosts for all bookings of Public Venues to a ShareDesk Lead (“ShareDesk Commission”). ShareDesk deducts the ShareDesk Commission from the Total Fees collected prior to making any payment to the Venue Host. Once the ShareDesk Commission has been deducted from the Total Fees, ShareDesk will initiate payment of the remaining balance, plus any applicable taxes to the Venue Host (the “Amount Due”). ShareDesk will collect the Total Fees at the time of booking confirmation (i.e. when the Venue Host confirms the booking within 24 hours of the booking request) and will initiate payment of the Amount Due to the Venue Host within 24 hours of when the Customer arrives at the applicable Venue (except to the extent that a refund is due to the Customer). There will be no ShareDesk Commission for Optix Venues or for booking transactions billed directly by the Venue or for Bookings cancelled and refunded under the terms of the Cancellation Policy. The only fees related to bookings for Optix Venues are those fees related for handling payments and transactions by Braintree, Moneris, PayPal, or Credit Card companies. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED HEREIN, THE SHAREDESK COMMISSION IS NON-REFUNDABLE. SHAREDESK RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE SHAREDESK COMMISSION FROM TIME TO TIME.

ShareDesk will remit the Amount Due to Venue Hosts via Braintree, in the Venue Host’s currency of choice, depending upon the selections the Venue Host makes via the Site, Application and Services. For any payments by ShareDesk in currencies other than U.S. dollars, ShareDesk may deduct foreign currency processing costs from such payments. More information on foreign currency processing cost deductions will be available via the Site and Application. If the Amount Due to a Venue Owner for a Payment Period is less than the equivalent of $50 USD, then the Amount Due will carry over to the next Payment Period. If the Amount Due for a Payment Period is greater than or equal to the equivalent of $50 USD, then ShareDesk will pay the Venue the Amount Due within 14 days of the end of the Payment Period.

C. Optix SaaS Fees
Optix SaaS Fees are outlined in the ShareDesk Optix marketing page. These fees are charged to Optix Venues at the beginning of every month. Optix Fees range based on capacity, number of seats being managed, and features. Optix venues can add additional members at a rate of $2 USD/ member per month. Additional payment processing fees may apply for collecting payments from members. These are fees charged by Braintree, Moneris, PayPal, or Credit Card Companies.

If Venues add new active members within a Payment Period, those fees will be calculated and added to the invoice of the following Payment Period. If active Members are removed within a Payment Period, the Optix Venue will not be charged for those Members as of the following Payment Period.

D. Optix Venues Listings Fees
As a Venue Owner, you may establish the booking fee for your Optix Venue Listing on the marketplace. ShareDesk will charge a 20% commission on all leads generated through the ShareDesk platform or application.

If the Total Fees exceed the Fees Collected, ShareDesk will invoice the Venue Owner for any amount owed by the Venue Owner that exceed US$100 and the Venue Owner shall pay such amounts within 30 days after invoicing.

ShareDesk reserves the right to withhold payment to your account any amounts otherwise due to us under the Terms of Use, or any amounts due as a result of a breach of these Terms of Use by you, pending ShareDesk’s reasonable investigation of such breach. In addition, ShareDesk may withhold or deduct from amounts to be paid to a Venue Owner in connection with these Terms of Use any charges or fees that are disputed or otherwise not paid by a Member or a credit card company or other payment provider, and ShareDesk may charge you (and you shall pay) any such amounts in the event that ShareDesk has already paid such amounts to you.

E. Withholdings and Taxes
ShareDesk reserves the right to withhold payment to your account any amounts otherwise due to us under the Terms, or any amounts due as a result of a breach of these Terms by you, pending ShareDesk’s reasonable investigation of such breach. In addition, ShareDesk may withhold or deduct from amounts to be paid to a Venue Owner in connection with these Terms any charges or fees that are disputed or otherwise not paid by a Member or a credit card company or other payment provider, and ShareDesk may charge you (and you shall pay) any such amounts in the event that ShareDesk has already paid such amounts to you.

You agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with your use or ShareDesk’s supply of the Service. Specifically, you are responsible for any sales or value-added taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with your use or ShareDesk’s supply of the Service. Where such taxes apply, you may choose to provide sales or value-added tax information to ShareDesk, and, if you provide such information, ShareDesk will calculate and add the specified sales or value-added tax to the listed booking fees and will collect the specified sales or value-added tax along with the Fees Collected (the “Calculated Sales Tax”). Following such collection, ShareDesk will report and remit the Calculated Sales Tax to the applicable Venue Owner when paying the Amount Due. Services Charges will not apply to Calculated Sales Tax.

Any bank fees arising from any error or omission in your payment information or contact information may be deducted from your payments. If you dispute any payment made hereunder, you must notify ShareDesk in writing within 30 days of any such payment; failure to so notify ShareDesk shall result in the waiver by you of any claim relating to any such disputed payment.

11. Appointment of ShareDesk as Payment Agent for Venue Host 
Each Venue Host hereby appoints ShareDesk as the Venue Host’s limited agent solely for the purpose of collecting payments made by Customers on behalf of the Venue Host. Each Venue Host agrees that payment made by a Customer to ShareDesk shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Venue Host and the Venue Host will make the Venue available to Customer in the agreed upon manner as if the Venue Host has received the Venue Fees. Each Venue Host agrees that ShareDesk may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the Venue Host and reflected in the relevant Listing, (i) permit the Customer to cancel the booking and (ii) refund to the Customer that portion of the Venue Fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Venue Host, ShareDesk assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Venue Host. Please note that ShareDesk does not currently charge fees for the creation of Listings. However, you acknowledge and agree that ShareDesk reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Listings. Please note that ShareDesk will provide notice of any Listing fee collection via the Site, Application and Services, prior to implementing such a Listing fee feature.

12. Bookings and Financial Terms for Customers 
A. Venue Fees
The Venue Hosts, not ShareDesk, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any Venues reserved through the Site, Application and Services. If you, as a Customer, choose to enter into a transaction with a Venue Host for the booking of a Venue, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Venue Host and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Venue imposed by the Venue Host. Please note that it is the Venue Host and not ShareDesk that determines the Venue Fees. The Venue Fee may include other fees, at the Venue Host’s discretion.

You acknowledge and agree that you, and not ShareDesk, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that ShareDesk is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, ShareDesk disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that ShareDesk is not a party to the agreement between you and the Venue Host, ShareDesk acts as the Venue Host’s payment agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Venue Host. Upon your payment of amounts to ShareDesk that are due to the Venue Host, your payment obligation to the Venue Host for such amounts is extinguished, and ShareDesk is responsible for remitting such amounts, less ShareDesk’s ShareDesk Commission, to the Venue Host. If ShareDesk does not remit any such amounts to a Venue Host, then such Venue Host will have recourse only against ShareDesk. Listings for Venues will specify the Total Fees. As noted above, the Venue Host is required to either confirm or reject the booking within 24 hours of when the booking is requested (as determined by ShareDesk in its sole discretion) or the requested booking will be automatically cancelled. If a requested booking is cancelled (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Venue Host), any amounts collected by ShareDesk will be refunded to such Customer, depending on the selections the Customer makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such Customer’s credit card will be released, if applicable.

You agree to pay ShareDesk for the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your ShareDesk Account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the applicable Venue Host. In order to establish a booking pending the applicable Venue Host’s confirmation of your requested booking, you understand and agree that ShareDesk, on behalf of the Venue Host, reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar ($1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting (e.g., one US dollar or one euro) to verify your credit card. Once ShareDesk receives confirmation of your booking from the applicable Venue Host, ShareDesk will collect the Total Fees in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Listing. Please note that ShareDesk cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Customer by his or her bank related to ShareDesk’s collection of the Total Fees, and ShareDesk disclaims all liability in this regard.

In connection with your requested booking, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and credit card information either to ShareDesk or its third party payment processor. You agree to pay ShareDesk for any confirmed bookings made in connection with your ShareDesk Account in accordance with these Terms by one of the methods described on the Site or Application – e.g. by PayPal or credit card. You hereby authorize the collection of such amounts by charging the credit card provided as part of requesting the booking, either directly by ShareDesk or indirectly, via a third party online payment processor or by one of the payment methods described on the Site or Application. You also authorize ShareDesk to charge your credit card in the event of damage caused at a Venue as contemplated under “Damage to Venues” below and for Security Deposits, if applicable. If you are directed to ShareDesk’s third party payment processor, you may be subject to terms and conditions governing use of that third party’s service and that third party’s personal information collection practices. Please review such terms and conditions and privacy policy before using the services. Once your confirmed booking transaction is complete you will receive a confirmation email summarizing your confirmed booking.

B. Recurring Payments
In some instances, Customers may be required to make recurring, incremental payments toward the Total Fees owed for a confirmed booking before beginning his or her stay at the applicable Venue (collectively, “Recurring Payments”). More information on Recurring Payments will be made available via the Site, Application and Services, if applicable. If Recurring Payments apply to a confirmed booking, then the Client authorizes ShareDesk Payments, on behalf of Venue Host, to collect the Total Fees and the Venue Host agrees that such ShareDesk entity will initiate payouts to the Venue Host, in the increments and at the frequency associated with the applicable Recurring Payments, identified on the Site, Application and Services.

13. Specific Terms Regarding ShareDesk Booking Credits
ShareDesk Booking Credits (“ShareDesk Booking Credits”) may only be redeemed for confirmed bookings via the Site, Application and Services and after you accrue ShareDesk Booking Credits, such ShareDesk Booking Credits will be automatically applied to your next confirmed booking made via the Site, Application and Services. ShareDesk Booking Credits are credit only and have no cash value nor can they be refunded or exchanged for cash. You may only redeem ShareDesk Booking Credits after the ShareDesk Booking Credits are reflected in your ShareDesk Account. The scope, variety, and type of services and products that you may obtain by redeeming ShareDesk Booking Credits can change at any time.

ShareDesk Booking Credits expire three (3) years from the date that any ShareDesk Booking Credits are last accrued in your ShareDesk Account. ShareDesk will notify you at the email address you provided during Account registration within thirty (30) days of when the ShareDesk Booking Credits in your ShareDesk Account are scheduled to expire. If for some reason you believe that there is a discrepancy regarding your balance of ShareDesk Booking Credits, please contact us at info@sharedesk.net ShareDesk may require to you to submit additional information in order to make a determination regarding your balance. All decisions regarding your balance will be final and at ShareDesk’s sole discretion. You are responsible for any Tax consequences, if any, that may result from your redemption or use of ShareDesk Booking Credits. Where applicable, ShareDesk may be required to account for VAT on any services for which the ShareDesk Booking Credits are redeemed.

Without limiting any other terms of these Terms and subject to applicable law, all ShareDesk Booking Credits are forfeited if your ShareDesk Account is terminated or suspended for any reason, in ShareDesk’s sole discretion, or if ShareDesk discontinues providing the Site, Application, or the Services.

14. Security Deposits
Venue Hosts may choose to include security deposits as part of their Optix Venue (“Security Deposits”). Each Optix Venue will indicate whether a Security Deposit is required for the applicable Venue. If a Security Deposit is included in a Listing for a confirmed booking of Venue, ShareDesk will, in its capacity as the payment agent of the Venue Host, use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a pre-authorization of the Customer’s credit card in the amount the Venue Host determines for the Security Deposit within a reasonable time prior to the Customer’s check-in at the applicable Venue Host’s Venue. ShareDesk will also use its commercially reasonable efforts to address Venue Hosts’ requests and claims related to Security Deposits, but ShareDesk is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Venue Hosts related to Security Deposits, and disclaims any and all liability in this regard. ShareDesk does not facilitate Security Deposit requirements for Listings by Venue Hosts on the marketplace.

15. Cancellation/ Refund Policy
A. Member Cancellations
NO REFUND IS AVAILABLE FOR ANY CANCELATION MADE BY A MEMBER AFTER THE LISTING BOOKING TIME OR ANYTIME AFTER THE BOOKING HAS BEGUN. Members will be fully refunded for cancellations made a full 24 hours prior to start of the Listing Booking time. Members will be refunded for the Venue Fees (80% of the Total Fees) for cancellations made within one hour of booking a Listing and before the Booking starts. A Booking is not officially canceled until the client receives cancellation confirmation e-mail from ShareDesk. If the cancellation e-mail is not received, contact ShareDesk at info@sharedesk.net.

B. Venue Host Cancellations
If a Venue Host cancels a confirmed booking made via the Site, Services, and Application, (i) ShareDesk Payments will refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable Client within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Client will receive an email or other communication from ShareDesk containing alternative Listings and other related information.  If a Venue Host cancelled a confirmed booking and you, as a Client, have not received an email or other communication from ShareDesk, please contact ShareDesk at info@sharedesk.net

If, as a Venue Host, you cancel a confirmed booking, ShareDesk may apply penalties or consequences to you or your Listing, including (i) publishing an automated review on your Listing indicating that a Booking was cancelled, (ii) keeping the calendar for your Listing unavailable or blocked for the dates of the cancelled booking, (iii) imposing a cancellation fee to be withheld from your future payouts (you will be notified of the situations in which a cancellation fee applies before you decide to cancel), or (iv) removing the listed space or venue for a period of time, or entirely banning the venue from using the ShareDesk platform or services.

C. Cancellation Disputes
If a dispute arises concerning a cancelation and/or a refund, the parties shall first attempt in good faith to resolve such dispute by negotiation and consultation between themselves. In the event that such dispute is not resolved on an informal basis, either party may, by written notice to ShareDesk within 24 hours of the Booking start time (“Dispute Notice”), refer such dispute to ShareDesk for mediation. After a Dispute Notice has been provided to ShareDesk, the parties agree that any decision made by ShareDesk concerning the dispute will be final and binding.

In certain circumstances, ShareDesk may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary or desirable to cancel a confirmed booking made via the Site, Application or Services.  ShareDesk may also determine, in its sole discretion, to refund to the Client for part or all of the amounts charged to the Client in accordance with the Client Refund Policy athttp://www.sharedesk.net/terms/client_refund_policy. You agree that ShareDesk and the relevant Client will not have any liability for such cancellations or refunds.

16. Donations
Some Venue Hosts may pledge to donate a portion of the funds they receive from confirmed bookings made via the Site, Application and Services to a particular cause or charity. We do not control, and will not take any responsibility or liability for, whether the Venue Host does in fact make the donation he or she pledged to make.

17. Taxes
IRS regulation, regarding federal tax reporting requirements, stipulates that ShareDesk must collect IRS Form W-9 from all property owners in the United States. You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable Tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors. ShareDesk cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members of the Site, Application and Services. Additionally, each Venue Host is responsible for determining local indirect Taxes and for including any applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. Where applicable, or based upon request from a Venue Host, ShareDesk may issue a valid Tax invoice to such Venue Host.

18. Foreign Currency
As part of the Services, ShareDesk provides a feature through which Members may view Total Fees for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of Total Fees are for informational purposes only and are not the official Total Fees for the Listings. If you (as a Customer) request a booking, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of Total Fees, if your booking is confirmed by a Venue Host. The currency in which you will be charged will be determined by ShareDesk based on the payment method you select and the location of the Venue in the Listing you are booking. If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by the Venue Host to receive payment, ShareDesk will be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that ShareDesk has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your booking is confirmed (the “Applicable Exchange Rate”). You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i) although ShareDesk updates the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it does not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate. ShareDesk will retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate between the dates your booking is confirmed and the date ShareDesk makes payment to a Venue Host.

19. Damage to Venues
As a Customer, you are responsible for leaving the Venue in the condition it was in when you arrived. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Customer, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Venue. If a Venue Host claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, such as photographs, then you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged items with equivalent items. After being notified of the claim and given 48 hours to respond, the payment will be charged to and taken from the credit card on file in your ShareDesk Account. ShareDesk also reserves the right to charge the credit card on file in your ShareDesk Account, or otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any avenues available to ShareDesk in this regard, including using Security Deposits, in situations in which you have been determined, in ShareDesk’s sole discretion, to have damaged any Venue, including in relation to any payment requests made by Venue Hosts under the ShareDesk Venue Host Guarantee, and in relation to any payments made by ShareDesk to Venue Hosts. If we are unable to charge the credit card on file or otherwise collect payment from you, you agree to remit payment for any damage to the Venue to the applicable Venue Host or to ShareDesk (if applicable).

Both Customers and Venue Hosts agree to cooperate with and assist ShareDesk in good faith, and to provide ShareDesk with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by ShareDesk, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Members relating to Venues or any personal or other property located at a Venue (including payment requests made under the ShareDesk Venue Host Guarantee) or with respect to any investigation undertaken by ShareDesk or a representative of ShareDesk regarding use or abuse of the Site, Application or the Services. If you are a Customer, upon ShareDesk’s reasonable request, and to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, you agree to participate in mediation or similar resolution process with a Venue Host, at no cost to you, which process will be conducted by ShareDesk or a third party selected by ShareDesk, with respect to losses for which the Venue Host is requesting payment from ShareDesk under the ShareDesk Venue Host Guarantee. If you are a Customer, you understand and agree that ShareDesk reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make a claim under your insurance policy related to any damage or loss that you may have caused or been responsible for to a Venue or any personal or other property located at a Venue (including amounts paid by ShareDesk under the ShareDesk Venue Host Guarantee.) You agree to cooperate with and assist ShareDesk in good faith, and to provide ShareDesk with such information as may be reasonably requested by ShareDesk in order to make a claim under your property’s insurance policy, including executing documents and taking such further acts as ShareDesk may reasonably request, to assist ShareDesk in accomplishing the foregoing.

40. Notices
Any notices or other communications permitted or required under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be in writing and given by ShareDesk (i) via email (in each case to the address that you provide) or (ii) by posting to the Site or via the Application. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.

41. Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of British Columbia, Canada and the federal laws of Canada applicable in that Province, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. You and ShareDesk agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a court located in Vancouver, British Columbia for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below in these Terms.

42. Dispute Resolution
You and ShareDesk agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site or Application (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled exclusively by binding arbitration by a single arbitrator, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and ShareDesk are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and ShareDesk otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms. The location of the arbitration will be Vancouver, British Columbia. The arbitration will be governed by the International Commercial Arbitration Act (British Columbia) (except if you are resident in British Columbia, in which case the Commercial Arbitration Act (British Columbia) will apply). The arbitrator will be selected and the arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”), except that the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section will prevail over the Rules.

If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and ShareDesk submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the Rules. Subject to the Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. The parties will share equally in the fees and expenses of the arbitrator and the cost of the venues used for the arbitration hearing, but will otherwise each bear their respective costs incurred in connection with the arbitration.

Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if ShareDesk changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to info@sharedesk.net) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of ShareDesk’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and ShareDesk in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

43. General
The failure of ShareDesk to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of ShareDesk. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

44. Contacting ShareDesk
If you have any questions about these Terms or any App Store Sourced Application, please contact ShareDesk at info@sharedesk.net.

Guest Blog written by Jeremy Neuner & Ryan Coonerty, Co-Founders of NextSpace and Authors of The Rise of the Naked Economy

Ready to give up your cubicle, your commute, and your daily grind? Tired of trading your freedom and flexibility for the “security” that comes from a “real job.” Frustrated by the “either/or” choice between having a career and having a family? Ready to find a way to make a living and make a life on your own terms? Then you’re ready for the Naked Economy.

A year ago, we published our book, The Rise of the Naked Economy: How to Benefit From the Changing Workplace.  The book profiles a group of brave pioneers who are finding new ways to work: from Ben Gran, who traded a job that was literally killing him for the freedom and flexibility of being a freelance writer in his hometown in Iowa, to Heather Stephenson, who integrates being a successful entrepreneur with being an awesome mom.  Since the book came out, we’ve been inspired by hundreds of people—many of them members at NextSpace, the coworking company that we started in 2008—who are challenging the status quo of how, where, and why we work.

“We’ve been inspired by hundreds of people who are challenging the status quo of how, where, and why we work.”

What’s driving this shift in work? No surprise, the biggest driver is the rapid growth in mobile technology (fun fact: the mobile smart phone is the most rapidly adopted technology in the history of the human species).  Combine mobile technology with ubiquitous Internet connectivity, cloud-based applications, and new marketplaces for talent (think: Elance and oDesk) and, voila!, a revolution of work is born.

But it’s not just technology that’s causing our society fundamentally to re-think work. Instead, people like Ben and Heather are motivated by a deep, almost primal, desire to take control of their work, their lives, and their well-being.  As Danny Crichton wrote in a recent TechCrunch column, “Through labor marketplaces and mobile apps, we are creating a world where workers are fundamentally in control of their economic lives.”  By seizing this control, we can create an economy and a society that are happier, healthier, more productive, and more innovative.  That’s the essence of the Naked Economy.

“We can create an economy and a society that are happier, healthier, more productive, and more innovative.”

We love running a coworking company because we get to spend our days immersed in a community of people who are passionate about creating the Naked Economy.  In fact, we think this collective desire to make a living and make a life on our own terms—rather than on terms dictated by big companies—will drive the continued growth of the coworking industry.  Sure, coworking spaces provide mobile workers, telecommuters, and entrepreneurs with flexible, inexpensive alternatives to working at home or at the local coffee shop.  And the early rise of the coworking industry stemmed from meeting that need.  But flexible workspace is just the beginning.  The collective actions of the workers who see coworking not just as a workspace, but as a way to take control of their economic and social well-being, will be the force that propels the next wave of growth in the industry. We’re hopeful and confident that the impact will a happier, healthier, more productive, more innovative society.

Cecilia Tham, Founder of Makers of Barcelona

Cecilia Tham is the founder of Makers of Barcelona, one of Barcelona’s first and largest coworking and maker spaces, hosting over 200 creative professionals and 35 companies. Housed in a former textile factory in the center of Barcelona’s bustling city center, Makers of Barcelona (MOB) claims to be “the platform for change”, both in and around the community.

Arquitecta-MOB-Industrial-Absolutament-Minteressa_ARAIMA20120813_0005_20

Known as the Mastermind behind the space, we reached out to Cecilia to learn more about MOB and her story. “Growing up as a Chinese American, I have always been the underdog, or the black sheep,” Cecilia shared, which she said happened all over again when she moved to Barcelona twelve years ago.

“I didn’t know the language. I felt like I didn’t have anywhere to go, and I was desperate to be connected.”

She decided to focus her energy and passion on opening MOB, the first maker space and one of the first large scale coworking spaces in Barcelona. “I wanted to be plugged into the the professional world, and be social as well”, Cecilia says.  Almost three years later, Cecilia can confidently say that she achieved this. She even refers to the space as ‘Monica’s House’ from the tv-show ‘Friends’, “a space with no boundaries or labels”.

When we asked Cecilia what her favourite part of running a coworking space was, she said the people. “I get to meet new people all the time and be introduced to new initiatives; it’s very fluid, like a river.”

Cecilia envision’s the future of work to be one of transforming thinkers into makers. She defines a maker as “a person that is self sufficient, passionately driven, fully capable and highly motivated.” Cecilia believes that for the first time in human history, we have the capability to do anything we want.

“I believe we are towards the end of the digital revolution, and we are now in the process of turning all of this information into something real. And we will do this through maker movement.”

Makers of Barcelona have been a part of the ShareDesk community since 2012. Here is what Cecila had to say when we asked her about her experience with ShareDesk.

“We have been a ShareDesk Venue Partner for the past two years. ShareDesk has been a great source for generating quality leads and building our community.”

Know Your Space

Rebecca K —  July 21, 2014

We already know the benefits of working in a flexible workspace over a home office, but what about working from a coffee shop or a library? Are they good alternatives to working from home? We are here to outline a few reasons why a flexible workspace is better for you and your business.

A Comparison of the Coffee Shop, Library and Flexible Workspace

When thinking about the reasons why we like working in a coffee shop, a few things come to mind such as the coffee (or tea, for the health conscious goers), the constant hum of chatter and noise, and overall, a nice change of scenery. When it comes to libraries, they are quite and free, and usually there is a corner or two that you can make feel your own. So, why chose a flexible workspace?

The People Running a successful business comes down to the people. Flexible workspaces attract a range of different people: freelancers, entrepreneurs, and mobile professionals, that are all investing in their productivity by joining a shared or serviced office environment. This allows for serendipitous moments and newly sparked opportunities. While you are grabbing coffee, you may just run into your next potential client or collaborator. You will be surrounded by not only your team, but your community, your mentors, and friends.

The Space Flexible workspaces provide you with, well… a productive environment, on flexible terms. If you are someone who can’t stay in one desk for more than a week, many coworking spaces provide you with the option to switch it up when you need to. Switch desks, book a meeting room for the day, go to a partner space. If you are looking for silence, you can book a meeting room or find a desk in your own quite corner.

The Value The value you can get from working at a service office space or coworking space, compared to what you pay, is well worth it. Instead of investing in an alternative that won’t provide you with exposure to a new potential network or any flexibility of how or where you work, consider a flexible workspace. If you still aren’t sold, think about it this way. You want a professional environment in which you can conduct your day to day, grow your business, and be surrounded by great people, right? Can you really do that in a coffee shop? Or a library?

Give it a try, and let us know what you think. Find your next space on ShareDesk

From a single collaborative workspace in San Francisco in 2005, coworking as a concept has ballooned into a popular movement, with over an estimated 3000 spaces around the world.

Coworking offers obvious benefits to freelancers and individuals, but as Tim Butcher and Julian Waters-Lynch explain, the principles of coworking have great potential for big businesses also.

We reached out to Julian Waters-Lynch to ask him why he thinks coworking has seen such remarkable growth? Here was his response:

“The technological story is straight forward. Ubiquitous wifi, cheap mobile devices, software’s great migration from the server to the cloud. All this adds up to a world where many people can work from anywhere, at least technically. No longer bound to the phone and computer on the desk, or the files on the server (let alone the paper in the filing cabinet), for many work has become more a case of something one does rather than somewhere one goes. Then there is the story of outsourcing and downsizing, the victory of the temporary contract and short term project over the increasingly elusive general employment agreement. Finally there are the work-life aspirations of the millennials – over half of which claim to be planning to work as freelancers or start their own businesses. The choices here appear different to the past, privileging freedom of mobility over fixed security. Working anywhere, anytime on projects of passion. From push to pull, this is the world the coworker inhabits and, arguably, the world of work that will become more and more widespread.”

Wondering what it takes to make your venue profile stand out? We’ve done our research and found that there are 3 key differentiators that successful ShareDesk partner venues all have in common.

01. Beautiful Pictures

Take the time to capture beautiful, high-resolution photos of your space, including the individual workspaces that you’ve listed on ShareDesk. Low quality photos reflect poorly and usually turn potential customers away. A quick, simple update to your pictures could make all the difference.

02. Tell a Story

Written descriptions that really tell a unique story about your space allows for potential customers to get a better idea of what to expect. Make sure you include your opening hours and up-to-date contact information.

03. Clear and Simple

Clearly showcase what you are offering, and for what price. Members are three times more likely to book your space when your pricing is simple.

ShareDesk is excited to announce the launch of its workplace management software and application, Optix. As the leading global platform for flexible workplaces, with a network of over 1,800 locations in 70 countries, ShareDesk is taking the next step towards providing seamless workplace mobility.

ShareDesk has designed an elegant, easy-to-use solution that addresses challenges faced by many serviced office spaces in a unique way, improving the flexible working experience for both space managers and mobile professionals.

Integrated Approach

Here at ShareDesk, we’ve spent considerable time running and working in shared offices and coworking facilities. Although we have fully-experienced the benefits of flexible work and managing flexible workplaces, we have also experienced some of the areas where specialized tools and utilities are long overdue.

As a space manager, the administrative burden of booking meeting rooms, tracking members’ usage or coordinating member sharing with another workplace can take away from running a business effectively and efficiently. As users of shared workspaces, time spent away from your work trying to track down a space manager as your just found out your meeting room has been double booked, can lead to a missed opportunity or worse.
