TERMS AND CONDITIONS

ALX Community has a variety of membership types for use of its co-working facility in the Building (the “Facility”). Your membership type, as specified in the Membership Details section of your Agreement, will determine the nature and extent of the use you may make of the Facility and the related services we will make available to you in connection with such use (collectively, the “Services”). The Terms and Conditions set forth in this document are intended to be applicable to each membership type, except to the extent that any of the Terms and Conditions are clearly inapplicable to a particular membership type (e.g., provisions relating to monthly billing will be inapplicable to Day Pass members).

I. RATES, FEES, PAYMENT TERMS

Payments Due Upon Signing. Upon submitting a signed and completed Agreement, you will be obligated to deliver to us, in the amount(s) set forth in the Membership Details section of your Agreement, (i) a service retainer (“Service Retainer”) and (ii) the Set-Up Fee. The Service Retainer will be held as a retainer for performance of all your obligations under the Agreement and is not intended to be a reserve from which fees may be paid. In the event you owe us other fees, you may not rely on deducting them from the Service Retainer, but must pay them separately.

Subject to the complete satisfaction of your obligations under the Agreement, we will return the Service Retainer, or any balance after deducting outstanding fees and other costs due to us, to you by refund to your ACH bank account, credit card, or debit card within thirty (30) days after the later of (1) the termination or expiration of the Agreement, or (2) the date you complete all your obligations under the Agreement, including any obligations applicable following termination or expiration of the Agreement.

Membership Fee. During the Term of the Agreement, we will process payment for your monthly Membership Fee, in advance, and other then-outstanding fees from the preceding month, on the first (1st) business day of each month. You are responsible for having the necessary funds available in your payment account as of the first (1st) day of the month. The Membership Fee covers the Services for only the number of Member Users indicated in the Membership Details section of your Agreement. In the event you designate (in the Membership Details section of your Agreement) fewer initial Member Users than the number of Member Users to which you are entitled, you may add additional Member Users (up to the specified number of Member Users to which you are entitled) by notice to us and payment of a Set-Up Fee for each additional Member User, with no increase in the Membership Fee. If you are a Private Office or Executive Office user, you may also add one additional Member User (in excess of the specified number of Member Users to which you are entitled) upon payment of a Set-Up Fee for the additional Member User, in which event the monthly Membership Fee will be increased by the amount set forth in the Membership Details section of your Agreement. You may also substitute new Member Users for previously-existing Member Users by notice delivered to us through ALX Community’s online platform and payment of a Set-Up Fee for each new Member User, with no increase in the Membership Fee. Except as described above, any additional Member Users will require modification of the Membership Details section of your Agreement.

Invoices; Financial Information. You may view your bill at any time in ALX Community’s online platform. On the first (1st) day of the month, ALX Community will electronically send invoices and other billing-related documents, information and notices to the then-current Billing Contact. All invoices are deemed delivered and read by the Billing Contact within 24 hours of being sent. If you have any objection to an invoice, you must notify us within ten (10) business days following delivery of the invoice; otherwise, you will be deemed to have accepted and approved the charges detailed on the invoice. Change of the Billing Contact will require at least three (3) business days’ notice delivered through ALX Community’s online platform.

Overage Fees. Each month, you will receive a certain number of credits for conference room use, copies, printouts and other products and services we may offer from time to time, some of which are specified in the Membership Details section of your Agreement. These allowances may not be rolled over from month to month. If these allocated amounts are exceeded, you will be responsible for paying fees for such overages. All overage fees are subject to change from time to time.

Late Fees. If payment for the Membership Fee or any other accrued and outstanding fee is not made by the fifth (5th) day of the month in which such payment is due, you will be responsible for paying the then-current late charge. The current late charge is listed below.

Form of Payment. We accept payment of all amounts specified in the Agreement solely by direct withdrawal from your bank account (ACH Transfer) or credit card or debit card using ALX Community’s online platform. If you elect to pay via direct withdrawal, you are required to maintain sufficient funds in your bank account to pay the fees described in the Agreement, and you must inform us promptly of any changes to the account. If you elect to pay via credit card or debit card, you are required to inform us promptly of any changes to your credit card or debit card information, and you must ensure that you replace such credit card or debit card and update the relevant information prior to its expiration date. Only a single checking, savings or credit card or debit card account may be used at any given time to make payments under the Agreement. If payment via credit card or debit card fails on two occasions, we may require you to make payments via direct withdrawal. If any charge is rejected by your bank or credit or debit card issuer, you may be liable for a late charge and for a processing fee as listed below.

Certain Fees. In addition to the fees specified in the Membership Agreement, you may become liable to us for additional fees (i) in the event you consume Services in excess of the credits for conference room use, copies, printouts and other products and services we may offer from time to time, as may be specified in your Membership Agreement; (ii) in the event you fail to make timely payment of any fees or charges due to us pursuant to your Membership Agreement and these Terms and Conditions; or (iii) in the event a charge we process is rejected by your bank or credit or debit card issuer. Set forth below are the current amounts of the above-described charges. These amounts may be modified by us from time-to-time, so we recommend that you periodically return to this page to familiarize yourself with any revisions to such amounts.

Late Fee: 10% of the overdue amount Rejected Charge Processing Fee: $50.00

Outstanding Fees. When we receive funds from you, we will first apply funds to any balances which are in arrears and to the earliest month for which fees are due. Once past balances are satisfied, any remaining portion of the funds will be applied to current fees due. If any payments remain outstanding after we provide notice to you, we may, in our sole discretion, withhold Services or terminate the Agreement.

No Refunds. Except as expressly provided in Section II (Term of Agreement), there are no refunds of any fees or other amounts paid by you or your Member Users in connection with the Services.

II. TERM OF AGREEMENT

The Agreement will be effective when signed by both parties; provided that we have no obligation to provide you with the Services until the later of (i) the date on which payment of your Service Retainer and first month’s Membership Fee has been made or (ii) the Start Date. Unless otherwise set forth in the Membership Details section of your Agreement, the Agreement will terminate as of the last day of the Commitment Term, following the Commitment Term. The Commitment Term and all subsequent Renewal Terms shall constitute the “Term”.

You will remain liable for past due amounts, and we may exercise our rights to collect due payment, despite termination or expiration of the Agreement. You will be entitled to a refund of a prorated portion of the last month’s Membership Fee if we terminate the Agreement pursuant to clause (iv) of this paragraph.

Removal of Property Upon Termination.

ALX COMMUNITY COMMUNITY RULES 

ALX Community offers shared workspace in an environment we expect will evolve and improve day by day, month by month, year by year. As a member of the ALX Community facility (the “Facility”), we expect you to be positive, and believe in your own personal mission and that of our COMMUNITY. You will achieve great things by working, meeting, collaborating, learning, and having fun in the COMMUNITY. We also believe strongly in giving back to the wider community. Please be a part of this by providing input to improve ALX Community for everyone.

As a member of ALX Community, you represent ALX Community and our expectation is that you will comply with the ALX Community rules.

SECTION 1: ALX COMMUNITY’S RULES.

By signing your Membership Agreement, you are agreeing to be bound by the rules and other guidelines below. Your membership benefits do not start until you agree to the Membership Agreement during your registration and attend an orientation with respect to your membership. Please abide by the following:

• Business Hours. Our normal business hours are 8:30 am–5:30 pm, Monday-Friday. However, from time to time, we reserve the right to close a Facility or section of a Facility for repair, emergency or other reasons. We will attempt to provide you reasonable notice of a closure whenever possible. Persons with Private Office, Executive Office, Dedicated Desk and Flex memberships do have 24/7 access to the Facility, though not all services will be offered beyond our normal business hours.

• Holidays. While the Facility will be open, our team are typically off on most standard US holidays.

• Behavior. ALX Community offers a modern co-working and flexible working environment. Recognize that different members have different working styles. We request that all members display appropriate and respectful behavior. ALX Community may terminate the membership of any member who fails to adhere to this standard. In the case of minor breaches, ALX Community will provide a warning and reasonable opportunity to cure prior to terminating a member’s membership. Actions that may result in immediate termination include but are not limited to unlawful use of the Facility, any use that may damage the Facility (including its computer system or computer network) or cause injury to another, and any action that prevents other members from using the ALX Community Facility. Harassment of other members and hate speech will not be tolerated. Members of so-called “hate groups” are not welcome at ALX Community.

  • Prohibited Use. You may not use the Facility for lodging or sleeping or for any immoral or illegal purpose. Please do not make retail sales to members of the public from the Facility, or solicit business from other persons using the Facility.
  • Smoking. No smoking (including vaping) is permitted in the Facility or the Building.
  • Weapons. The Facility is a weapons-free environment. You may not carry weapons (concealed or not) of any kind in the Facility.

• Safety and Security. While all ALX Community locations have surveillance cameras at entrances and public access areas, we cannot guarantee a 100% secure environment. Please be aware of your surroundings at all times.

• Dogs. ALX Community is a dog-friendly community. All dog owners are subject to our dog policy if they bring their dog to the Facility.

• Access. Keys, key cards, keyless applications and other such items used to gain physical access to the Facility remain our property. You will be liable for replacement fees should any keys or other access devices be lost, stolen or destroyed. You also agree that you may not share keys, key cards, keyless applications and other such items used to gain physical access to the Facility with anyone who is not an active member or employee of the ALX Community. Under no circumstance should you prop open the door to the Facility.

• Guests. Anyone visiting you at ALX Community will need to check-in at the front desk inside the main coworking space and/or use our electronic receptionist to alert you they are here. You will receive email and/or text notification that your guest is waiting at the front desk. Guests must be accompanied by a member at all times. The hosting member will be responsible for their guests’ actions at all times. A maximum of 4 guests are permitted after hours, and only with members who have a 24/7 membership. All guests working in the space for more than 1.5 hours are subject to the Day Pass rates.

• Kitchens. It is your responsibility to maintain the Facility in a safe, sanitary and presentable condition. This includes returning dirty dishes, glasses, or cups to the kitchen area for cleaning. Please use the dishwasher and appropriate trash containers, and recycle where possible. In order to maintain a clean and sanitary environment, we request that any food be eaten in the kitchen or patio area and not at your dedicated desk or flex space. Please dispose of any food in the kitchen trash, not in your space. Rinse the dirty dishes, glasses, or cups you used. If the dishwasher is full, turn it on and hand-wash your dish, glass, or cup. When the dishwasher cleaning cycle is complete, please assist in putting dishes away. Please do not store dishware, glasses, cups, etc. in your workspace. The refrigerator is provided for your use, but please remove your food and beverages at the end of each week. The honor bar is operated by an honor system. Please check out anything you are consuming. If your favorite snack is out of stock, please let us know.

• Common Areas. Common areas are meant for everyone’s use, and should not be used as your own personal workspace for excessive amounts of time, as this prevents others from using the space as casual meeting space. If telephone conversations are required, try to use phone booths or other semi-private areas. Please don’t use phone booths as private work spaces. Phone booths are to be shared. Please do not bring your own TVs or other musical devices into common areas. If you have such devices in your offices, please respect your neighbors.

• Furniture/Other Equipment/Decorations. The workspaces are provided as-is. No modifications are allowed. Each member should immediately notify an ALX Community team member of any problems with or damage to the Facility, including but not limited to fixtures, windows, heating and cooling systems, and water leaks. Any damage you or your guests cause to any furniture, any fixtures, fittings or other equipment could result in you being charged for repair work and/or replacement.

• Confidentiality. Unlike an office where everyone works for the same company, at ALX Community, you are one of many diverse businesses, and as such there may be times when you overhear others’ conversations or pick up others’ copies from a printer. Any information disclosed by ALX Community or by other members of ALX Community (including through your keen observation) may be confidential or proprietary in nature. Please help us maintain this confidentiality.

• Children. All members of ALX Community must be 18 years of age or older. We recognize there may be isolated occasions when you desire to have your children present with you in the Facility. The presence of children in the Facility is subject to approval by the Community Manager, so please seek that approval as soon as you become aware of a situation in which you desire to have your child(ren) present in the Facility. In such cases, any child in the space must be with you and is your responsibility. Well behaved and supervised children who are 12 years of age or older may be eligible to attend some events with the permission of the Community Manager. We request you ensure they behave in an appropriate manner while present for any event or other times.

• Bicycles/Scooters. Please keep bikes at designated storage areas, and make sure to clean up any oil, mud or other debris from those storage areas. No scooters are permitted in the Facility.

• Events. ALX Community is a multi-purpose destination, and will host events at all locations, during the day, evening and weekend hours. Every attempt will be made to clearly mark private areas. Event participants must not use members’ workspaces. Portions of the Facility may be closed when we are hosting special events.

• Printing. Use of our printers is currently provided to most membership types. Any excess usage will be charged per your Membership Agreement.

• Insurance. ALX Community will carry General Liability and Business Personal Property insurance covering its own personal property. As a member, it is strongly suggested that you carry an insurance policy of some type to cover your own equipment while using our Facility. ALX Community cannot provide insurance for you with respect to any loss of your property or business (including cyber losses) resulting from your use of the Facility. Further, you acknowledge that it is solely your responsibility to make sure you are properly insured against such losses, and you acknowledge granting a full waiver of liability for ALX Community.

• HVAC. Heating, Ventilation and Cooling is provided for your comfort. ALX Community is part of the larger building (the “Building”). The system will be maintained at a consistent temperature as provided by our landlord. Cooling and/or heating will be provided from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Saturday and from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Sunday. Portable heaters pose a safety hazard and are strictly prohibited.

• Photography/Video. We love to share the space and stories about our members and the activities we hold and support. You grant ALX Community unrestricted permission to use photographs or video taken within the Facility for any purpose whatsoever.

• Meeting Rooms. ALX Community offers meeting rooms as an amenity for your use. Members must use credits (as detailed in your Membership Agreement) or usage fees will be charged. Please be respectful of the times you book and extend the booking if you need more time (if the room is available). Please leave rooms as you found them. Please remove debris, store supplies, wipe clean the whiteboards and turn off the electronics/technology. If you are in a meeting room and it is not reserved, we have the right to charge you for its use.

• Conversations, music or videos. Please be respectful of others while on the on the phone. Take calls in your private or executive office with the door closed, a phone booth, reserved meeting room or quietly in a designed public space. Please do not use a speaker phone or any other audio device at the flex desk, dedicated desks, hallways or in public areas. We prefer that you turn your ringer on vibrate.

• Building Rules. Please be aware that all ALX Community locations exist inside multi-tenant business buildings, which means that ALX Community members also must abide by the rules of the Building. Please know that similar to our rules which may change, the Building’s rules may change over time. The Building rules and any changes thereto will be posted on the ALX Community website
