|Agreements Between Guests and Hosts|
|By completing a reservation for a Space via the Service, each Guest acknowledges and agrees that it is entering into an agreement directly with the applicable Host, the terms of which are located at:|
|and which include any and all additional terms, conditions and policies provided by the Host relating to the use of such Space, including building security procedures, IT access and use procedures, maximum occupancy limitations and other terms or procedures provided by the Host (the "House Rules” and, together with the Hourly Space License Agreement or the Monthly Space License Agreement, as applicable, the “Space License Agreement”).|
The following terms in the Space License Agreement shall be defined for the applicable reservation in accordance with the Registration Data and Profile for the applicable Space, Guest and Host.
For Hourly Reservations:
For Monthly Reservations:
While Fluidmeet is not a party to the Space License Agreement between a Guest and a Host, a Guest’s use of the Service is dependent upon such Guest’s compliance with the Space License Agreement. Consequently, as a Guest, you agree to abide by, and cause your employees, agents, guests, invitees, contractors, directors, shareholders, members and representatives to abide by, the Space License Agreement. In the event of any conflict between the terms and conditions of the House Rules and the Hourly Space License Agreement or the Monthly Space License Agreement, as applicable, the terms set forth in the House Rules shall control. Any acknowledgement and acceptance of the Space License Agreement, as well as of any applicable House Rules, by a Guest as a part of completing a reservation establishes an agreement directly between the Guest and the applicable Host. The Hosts, not Fluidmeet, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any Spaces reserved through the Service. Guests, and not Fluidmeet, will be responsible for complying with the applicable Space License Agreement and performing their obligations under any such agreements. Fluidmeet is not a party to those agreements, and Fluidmeet disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. Fluidmeet does not act as an insurer or as a Guest’s or Host’s real estate broker.
Fluidmeet may, but has no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and any other Users relating to the Service. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, FLUIDMEET IS NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE IN ANY MANNER FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE ARISING OUT OF YOUR TRANSACTIONS, COMMUNICATIONS AND INTERACTIONS WITH ANY OTHER USERS, INCLUDING ANY SPACE LICENSE AGREEMENTS THAT YOU ENTER INTO. FLUIDMEET DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS BY HOSTS OR IN ANY COLLECTIONS (AS DEFINED BELOW), OR THE CONDITION, LEGALITY OR SUITABILITY OF ANY SPACES. YOU HEREBY RELEASE FLUIDMEET FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, CAUSES OF ACTIONS, OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO SUCH TRANSACTIONS, COMMUNICATIONS AND INTERACTIONS, INCLUDING ANY SPACE LICENSE AGREEMENTS THAT YOU ENTER INTO, LISTINGS ON THE SITE, COLLECTIONS SENT TO YOU BY ANOTHER USER AND THE QUALITY, CONDITIONS OR SUITABILITY OF ANY SPACE.
If you are a Guest and you have been duly authorized to book the Space by the Host, when you complete a reservation for a Space on the Service, you agree to pay the applicable fee for using the Space as set forth in the offering for such Space (the “Fee”) based on the type of reservation booked (i.e. Hourly Reservation vs. Monthly Reservation (each, defined below)). The Fee for an Hourly Reservation is the rate per hour of the reservation and the Fee for a Monthly Reservation is the rate per calendar month of the reservation. “Hourly Reservations” are reservations with duration of 24 hours or less including any reservations made for a full day, as well as recurring reservations where each individual reservation is a full day or less. “Monthly Reservations” are reservations with a minimum duration of one calendar month, including reservations that automatically renew on a month-to-month basis.
You will be billed the Fee through one of the two following options, as determined by the Host: (1) Fluidmeet will ask for your credit card information and billing address or other payment information, and Fluidmeet will process your Fee payment on behalf of the Host (the “Fluidmeet Billing Option”), or (2) the Host will bill you directly for the Fee, and the Host will process your Fee payment directly (the “Host Billing Option”). Under the Fluidmeet Billing Option, Fluidmeet is acting as the Host’s limited payment collection agent, and the Fee paid through this option shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Host.
The amount and timing of the Fee payments processed by Fluidmeet on behalf of the Host is based on the type of reservation booked. For Hourly Reservations booked under the Fluidmeet Billing Option, Fluidmeet will process payment for such reservations upon acceptance by the venue. For Hourly Reservations, you will be charged the Fee for the total number of hours booked including any taxes as set forth in the offering for the Space (the “Hourly Reservation Payment”). Any changes you make to your reservation after it is made may result in an adjustment to the Hourly Reservation Payment for the reservation subject to the Cancellation Terms (defined below). In the event you use the Space for longer than the amount of time you booked for your reservation, the applicable Host may adjust the Hourly Reservation Payment for your reservation based on your actual use of the Space. If you believe a change to your Hourly Reservation Payment made by a Host was in error, you may request a refund by providing notice to Fluidmeet through the Service. Fluidmeet may provide you a refund at Fluidmeet’s sole discretion.
Monthly Reservations may only be request to book under the Fluidmeet Billing Option and require a minimum length of one calendar month. For Monthly Reservations, the host will process the initial payment for such request to book reservations. For Monthly Reservations, the initial payment will be equal to (1) the Setup Charge (as defined in the Space License Agreement), (2) (i) the Fee for the first full calendar month of the reservation (if you start your reservation on the first calendar day of the month), or (ii) a pro-rated portion of the Fee for the first partial month of the reservation (if you start your reservation after the first calendar day of the month), and (3) any applicable taxes. In addition, Fluidmeet will also process an additional amount equal to the Fee for a full calendar month (the “Deposit”).
Renewals of Monthly Reservations, if any, shall be in accordance with the Space.
|The Deposit will be collected by Fluidmeet on behalf of the Host and held for the benefit of the Guest and Host during the term of the reservation pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Space License Agreement.|
If you are a Host or a Professional, you acknowledge that Fluidmeet accepts payments from Guests as a limited collection agent for the Host and that Fluidmeet’s obligation to pay the Host or a Professional is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Guests. Fluidmeet does not guarantee payments to Hosts or Professionals for amounts that have not been successfully received by Fluidmeet from Guests.
Any reservations that are cancelled by the Guest or by the Space at the Guest's request are subject to the Cancellation Terms.
