Terms of Service
Last Updated as of February 14, 2014
1. How it Works
Weleet is an online platform that connects people working from home, coffee shops, public spaces, or in small offices and enables them to share workspace and network within the community of freelancers, entrepreneurs and small business owners (the “Services”). Weleet does not own, sell, resell, furnish, provide, rent, manage and/or control any of these workspaces listed on the Site. Weleet's responsibilities are limited to facilitating the availability and the operation of the Site. The Site and the Services are intended solely for persons who are 18 or older.
WELEET CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY OF THE LISTINGS, INCLUDING ITS ACCURACY, SUITABILITY, LEGALITY AND CONDITION. WELEET IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO OR ARISING FROM THE LISTINGS, WORKSPACES AND CONDUCT OF MEMBERS. ALL BOOKINGS MADE THROUGH THE SITE ARE MADE AT MEMBERS' OWN RISK.
A. Becoming an Awesome Member. In order to access the Site, you need to register and create an account (each, a “Weleet Account”). You can register by using your email address or through Facebook. As part of registration, you will be asked to take a compatibility test, and create a personal profile. Here, you will be asked to respond to the required questions (first name, last name, title, zipcode) and optional ones (organization, interests, birthday, LinkedIn page, phone numbers). Once you complete your profile, you will become a general member of Weleet. On the Site, we refer to general members as Awesome Members. As an Awesome member, you may view other members' profiles and the workspaces they offer to share. You can schedule and manage workgroups, book available workspaces, and list your own workspace.
B. Becoming an Awesomer Member. You also have an option to upgrade to premium membership, which we refer to as Awesomer membership. Although Awesomer membership is free during the beta version of the Site, Weleet intends in the future to charge Awesomer members a monthly subscription fee. As an Awesomer member, you can create your own community within Weleet, post ratings and reviews, connect with others, and send invites and requests to share space.
C. Rules Relating to Weleet Accounts. Weleet will create your Weleet Account and profile page for your use on the Site based on the information that you provided. You may only have one (1) Weleet Account. Weleet does not confirm, any member's identity. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of other members you contact through the Site. You agree to provide to Weleet accurate, current and complete information and to update it as needed. Weleet reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Weleet Account and your access to the Site and the Services if you create more than one (1) account or if any information that you provide is not accurate, current and complete. By using the Site and/or the Services, you agree to limit any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other members or other third parties to a claim against the particular member or other third party who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from, Weleet with respect to any such actions or omissions.
D. Creating Listings. As a member, you can create your own listings of workspaces. To do so, you will have to answer a number of questions and provide certain information, including location, physical address, capacity, size, features, availability, additional rules, payment terms, if any, and other conditions. Listings will be available for search, viewing and booking by all Weleet members.
You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for all listings you post. You represent and warrant that when listing your workspace:
• You will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties;
• You will be in compliance with all applicable laws, including tax laws;
• The listing does not and will not conflict with the rights of any third party.
Weleet assumes no responsibility for your compliance with applicable laws, and reserves the right, at any time and without notice, to remove or disable access to any listing for any reason.
Weleet recommends that you consider obtaining appropriate insurance prior to listing your workspace. You should review any insurance policy carefully, including any deductibles and exclusions, and whether the policy coverage extends to actions or inactions by other Weleet members who will share your workspace.
2. Intellectual Property
Unless specifically noted, Weleet owns all of the trademarks, service marks and domain names displayed on the Site, whether registered or unregistered, including but not limited to, the name Weleet, our logo, our design patterns and our other graphics, weleet.co website trade dress, and other indicia of origin of Weleet products and services.

You agree to abide by all copyright notices, information, or restrictions contained in or attached to any of the Content.
3. License Grant and Content
You may not systematically retrieve data or other content from the Site to create or compile, directly or indirectly, in single or multiple downloads, a collection, compilation, database, directory or the like, whether by manual methods, through the use of bots, crawlers, or spiders, or otherwise. You may not display any portion of the Site in a frame (or any content from the Site through in-line links) without our prior written consent, which may be requested by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

As a member of the Weleet community, you may post, upload, publish, submit or transmit your content (“Member Content”). You understand that whether or not such Member Content is published, we do not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any Member Content.
You shall be solely responsible for your own Member Content and the consequences of posting or publishing it. In connection with Member Content, you affirm, represent and warrant that (i) you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents and permissions to use and authorize us to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all of your Member Content to enable use of the Member Content in the manner contemplated by the Site and this Agreement and (ii) neither the Member Content nor your posting, uploading, publication, submission or transmittal of the Member Content or Weleet's use of the Member Content on, through or by means of the Site, will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party's patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.

Any opinions and recommendations members express on the Site are those of the persons expressing such views and not those of Weleet. We neither endorse the content of your communications, postings or data, nor assume any responsibility for any threatening, libelous, obscene, harassing or offensive material contained in such materials or any crime facilitated by use of the Site. You agree to hold us and our affiliates, employees and agents free of responsibility for any potentially damaging Member Content posted by you.
You agree and understand that by creating a Weleet account and profile, posting reviews or listings, you will be exposing your personal information to others. Under no circumstances will Weleet be liable for any consequences resulting from you sharing your information with other people, including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of such actions. You release Weleet from any claims related to the sharing of your information through the listings, including personally identifiable information. You acknowledge that Weleet has no control over, and no duty to take any action regarding: which persons gain access to your information that you share with others; what effects this may have on you; and how you and the others may use information received through the sharing of your profile and listings with third parties. Further, you acknowledge that Weleet will not pre-screen users or information they submit to the Site.

You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in New York, New York regarding any and all disputes relating to this Agreement or your use of the Site.

The arbitration shall be before a single arbitrator. Any such controversy, dispute or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any controversy, dispute or claim of any other party. The arbitration shall be conducted in the State of New York, and under the laws of the State of New York (without giving effect to conflict of law principles), and judgment on the arbitration award may be exclusively entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof within the State of New York. Nothing herein shall limit the right for us to seek any interim or preliminary equitable or injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction necessary to enforce any right under this Agreement pending the completion of arbitration. Each party shall bear one-half of the costs of the arbitration, including the fees incurred through AAA. You expressly consent to and waive any objection which you may have or hereafter have to the venue or jurisdiction of any such action, suit or proceeding as set forth herein. Notwithstanding this Agreement to arbitrate, either you or we may bring an individual action in small claims court.

(e) Severability. If any term or provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or otherwise unenforceable, that term or provision will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to render such term or provision enforceable, and the terms and conditions hereunder will be construed and enforced accordingly, preserving to the fullest permissible extent the intent of this Agreement.
(f) Assignment; Waiver. You may not at any time transfer, assign or delegate any of your rights, obligations or privileges hereunder; we may do so at any time.

No waiver of any provision or any right granted hereunder will be effective unless set forth in a written instrument signed by the waiving party. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach or default.
(g) Complete Agreement. This Agreement, including any references mentioned and incorporated herein, together with such changes as may be subsequently made by we, constitutes the complete agreement between you and us, our subsidiaries, affiliated companies, licensors, and those third parties assisting in the operation of the Site with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, written or oral.
