You must register for and maintain an active member account and provide us with personal information and a current method of payment. Please read our Privacy Policy carefully (it forms part of these Terms) and provide your consent to additional uses of personal information when prompted to get the benefit of our Services to enhance your membership.
  2. Your membership to Kafnu begins on the date that your application for membership has been accepted and you have provided us with personal data consent. Your membership ends on the earlier of the date that you notify us that you wish to leave the Kafnu community, or the date that we terminate your membership in accordance with these Terms.
  3. Joining the Kafnu community as a member is free currently, and you have the flexibility to use as many or as few of the Services as suits your needs. As our community grows, we may introduce membership packages with upfront monthly membership fees and we will notify you in advance of any changes that we intend to introduce.
  4. As a member of Kafnu, you are entitled to make reservations to use the Services: Workspaces and any of the facilities for PLAY, LEARN and REST that are available in your Location. These Services are provided on a “pay as you go” basis, with payment to be made online (using our IT Services). Payment for reserving such Services must be made in advance via our website or App, or when you arrive at our Location at the start of a reservation. The current rates for Workspaces and other facilities in each Location will be available on our website or you can ask a community manager onsite for details. (See below for more information about method of payment.)
  5. In order for you to enter and enjoy the Location, the minimum requirement is that you have reserved and paid for a “hot desk”. Upgrading from a hot desk to a private office or other Workspace, or using Shared Spaces (e.g. food and beverage facilities) within your Location is within your power to choose.
  6. Depending on the Location, some of our Services may be provided on a complimentary basis, such as complimentary snacks and drinks. Generally any cafes, restaurants and licensed bars within our Locations will provide food and beverages on a “pay as you go” basis to give you the utmost flexibility. That said, certain facilities (like the bar) are only available to members, guests and visitors who have attained the legal minimum age applicable in the Location, or older if set by the House Rules.

Your membership account username and password, access card or other security credentials should not be shared with or given to anyone else. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your membership account username and password and the security of your access card. If you suspect someone else is accessing your membership account or access card, you must promptly notify us.
  9. If you are applying for membership and entering into these Terms for and on behalf of a business entity, you represent and warrant that you have all necessary right, authority and consent to legally bind that business entity and to create, terminate and maintain the business entity account and to add and remove individual members to and from the account, and confirm that you are using the Services for business purposes (and not as a consumer). You agree to indemnify us for any loss we may suffer as a result of any breach of these warranties and representations.

What about guests and visitors?

  1. Members may invite guests for meetings for however long a meeting room has been reserved. For members who are using our desks or private offices, guests may stay for up to 1 hour on a complimentary basis, but for longer visits we reserve the right to charge at our standard rates for guest’s use of the relevant Workspace.
  2. All guests are required to register with one of our community managers upon arrival at a Location. You and your guests may be required to present a valid, government-issued photo identification before entering the Location. If you bring someone into the Location as your guest, you agree to take full legal responsibility for that person and their actions for as long as they remain in the Location. We reserve the right to remove any guest from the Location if they do not conduct themselves consistently with these Terms or House Rules. If we deem it reasonably necessary, we may disclose information about your guests to satisfy applicable law, rule, regulation, legal process or government request, or to protect us, our members, or other individuals, or any of our or their Belongings or other property. It is your obligation to notify any of your guests about this policy.

PART C. LOCATION RULES OF USE

  1. This part of the Terms sets out the general conditions for use that apply to each Location (“Rules of Use”). These Rules of Use may be supplemented by House Rules. If there is any inconsistency between these Rules of Use and the House Rules, the House Rules will be the governing rules (but only to the extent necessary to resolve the inconsistency).
  2. You must keep the Workspace and Shared Space clean and orderly, free from rubbish and safety hazards. Any use of the Workspace or Shared Space by you, or your guests and visitors, that creates cleaning requirements that are considered in excess of the general and normal standards will be subject to a surcharge payable by you to us.
  3. You must, and are responsible to ensure that your guests and visitors do:
    1. behave in a responsible, courteous and professional manner with due consideration and respect towards our staff, contractors or guests, other members and their guests and visitors;
    2. refrain from any behaviour which would bring the Location into disrepute or cause discomfort to our staff, contractors or guests, other members and their guests and visitors; and
    3. not bring to or keep any item in the Location that is flammable or may create a safety risk to the Location or others within in or in the proximity of the Location (e.g. firearms), or which you do not have a legal right to have in your possession.

We reserve the right to ask any person who fail to do so to leave the Location immediately.

  1. The Workspace and Shared Space must, at the end of the reservation (or earlier termination date), be clear of all your Belongings, trash and other items that were not present when you took control of it. Failure to do so may result in Kafnu disposing of property and charging you for associated expenses.
  2. You will ensure that the Workspace and Shared Space is used only for the purposes for which it is designed, in a proper and lawful manner, consistent with these Terms and any instructions or guidelines provided by Kafnu. You will not make any alterations or remove any component of the Workspace or Shared Space unless Kafnu management has given prior written consent.
  3. You must not use any Services or reserve or use any Workspace or event space in a “retail,” “medical,” or other manner that involves frequent use by or visits from members of the public.
  4. Depending on the Location, we may issue a security access card to members who reserve a meeting room or events space for consecutive days, or who reserve other forms of Workspace on a monthly basis. The access card is and remains our property at all times. Before we issue you with an access card, you must pay us a security deposit. Security deposit amounts are available upon request from your Location community manager. If you lose, misplace or fail to return your access card at the end of the reservation, or on termination of membership, we will be entitled to deduct the replacement cost from your security deposit before refunding any balance to you.
  5. You will give immediate written notice to Kafnu in the event of any wilful or negligent loss, accident or damage to: (i) the Workspace, Shared Space or other areas and facilities; or (ii) our furniture, equipment or materials in your Location arising from or in connection with your hire of the Workspace or your or your guest’s and visitor’s attendance and use of the Location. Any such loss or damage is your financial responsibility.
  6. We does not accept responsibility for any loss or damage to your Belongings brought to the Location before, during or after the reservation period. Belongings are brought to and left within the Location at your own risk. You are responsible to arrange adequate insurance to cover potential loss to Belongings. This policy also applies to any and all Belongings of your guests and visitors.
  7. No banners, signage or posters may be attached to any surface of the Location without our prior written consent. Under NO circumstances can tape, staples, or any fixing be attached to the pillars, railings, walls or other surfaces within the Location and such items may be removed by us in our discretion without warning. Subsequent costs of making good any damage will be charged to you. Kafnu signage, emergency or other signage in place for the safety of Kafnu staff, contractors, other members, guests and visitors must not be covered or obscured in any way at any time.
  8. You acknowledge and agree that we will not be responsible for any loss of or damage to the Workspace or Location arising out of or in connection with any negligence, misuse, mishandling of the Workspace or otherwise caused by the you or your guests or visitors, and you undertake to indemnify us on demand against the same, and against all losses, liabilities, claims, damages, costs or expenses of whatever nature otherwise arising out of or in connection with any failure by you, your guests or visitors to comply with the provisions of these Terms.
  9. Visitors to the Location (including prospective members) are required to register with one of our community managers upon arrival at a Location, and may be required to present a valid, government-issued photo identification before entering the Location. We reserve the right to remove any visitor from the Location if they do not conduct themselves consistently with these Terms. If we deem it reasonably necessary, we may disclose information about a visitor to satisfy applicable law, rule, regulation, legal process or government request, or to protect us, our members, or other individuals, or any of our or their Belongings or other property.
  10. For security purposes, our Locations are fitted with CCTV (as noted in the Kafnu Privacy Policy) but we are not responsible for Belongings or the actions of any guests, visitors or other third parties.

Reservations

  1. You will pay the non-refundable fee at the time of making a reservation to reserve the Workspace and/or Shared Space.
  2. A reservation is not confirmed until the fee has been paid and you have satisfied any and all reasonable requirements of Kafnu relating to the reservation (which may include, among others, signing a separate document).
  3. Meeting rooms and event spaces may be reserved subject to availability. Meeting rooms may be used for a quick break-out of up to 15 minutes if they are not reserved by other members, but if you need longer than that you will need a paid reservation.
  4. If you wish to reserve a Workspace for longer than 30 days, block-book a number of Workspaces or other type of reservation not available through our online booking service, a separate arrangement may be made. Please contact your community manager for more information on availability, our package rates and tailored arrangements. Some of our Locations are within hotels which also offer conference facilities – let us know if you are coming to Kafnu in connection with a conference at the host hotel.
  5. We will host events open to members and/or the public from time to time, and when an event is planned we may ask you to relocate your Workspace. Where possible, we will arrange an alternate Workspace for you so you can work through the event but we cannot and do not guarantee that the available Workspace will be sufficient to meet all of your requirements. Workspaces fees will NOT be pro-rated for any relocation as events are an important part of how the Kafnu community functions. For some larger Kafnu events or member functions, we may need to block all or most Workspaces, Shared Spaces or the entire Location from being available for use or reservations, and we will do our best to give you notice as early as practicable.
  6. Our Locations are a shared and flexible community, and there may be other situations (apart from events) where you are asked to relocate your Workspace to an alternate position in the Location. In such situations, if we are unable to relocate you to a similar Workspace, and we arrange an alternate Workspace at a lower fee rate, we will adjust your fees to match the Workspace you use. If no alternate Workspace is available for you, you may cancel the reservation and the Terms for cancellation of reservations will apply.
  7. If you have not moved your Belongings within 3 days after we have requested that you relocate to an alternate Workspace under these Terms and you have not cancelled the reservation, we have the right to move your Belongings to the alternate Workspace proposed by us and we will not be liable for any damage caused by such move.

Cancellations of reservations

  1. To cancel your reservation of any Workspace or Shared Space, you must give us notice and cancellation is not deemed to have occurred until notice is received by us in writing to the Location, or to the email address set out in the House Rules or otherwise displayed in your Location. Verbal cancellation will not be accepted.
  2. If you have reserved a Workspace or Shared Space on a monthly basis, you may cancel a reservation up to 6:00pm on the last day of the month without penalty. However, if you cancel your monthly reservation earlier in the month any fees already paid will not be refunded.
  3. If you have reserved a Workspace or Shared Space on an ad hoc basis or for period of less than 30 days, and you give notice to cancel your reservation:
    1. more than 48 hours before the start of the reservation, the relevant fee can be used towards a future reservation;
    2. 48 hours or less before the start of the reservation, the relevant fee will be either forfeited or may be used towards a future reservation in accordance with the House Rules that apply to your Location at the relevant time;
    3. after the reservation has started, the amount of the total fee that relates to the unused portion of your reservation period will not be refunded and cannot be used towards a future reservation (unless we agree otherwise in our sole discretion).
