TERMS OF SERVICE – USER
Last updated: December 1, 2020
Welcome to Upflex!
Our Service enables owners and/or operators of Spaces (“Space Partners”) to offer for booking or otherwise make available their workspaces, which include desks, meeting rooms, individual offices, and partial, full or multiple floors (collectively, “Spaces”) for use by individuals and/or companies who book the Spaces (each, a “Guest”). The listing of Spaces by Space Partners, and access to and booking of Spaces by Guests is completed through the Upflex dashboard on the Upflex website located at https://upflex.com/ (the “Site”) or through our Upflex mobile application and application program interact (the “Mobile Application”), and requires registration for an account (as described in “Account Registration” below).
These terms and conditions (these “Terms of Service”) govern your use of the Site and the Mobile Application, and all associated services (together with the Site and the Mobile Application, the “Service”) made available by Upflex, Inc. (“us”, “we”, or “Upflex”). By accessing, using, or participating in the Service, you (“you” or the “User”) agree to be bound by these Terms of Service. Please read them carefully.
Additional terms may apply to your use of a specific Service. These additional terms will be available with the relevant Service, and will become part of your agreement with us if you use that Service.
Upflex may change these Terms of Service from time to time. Changes will be effective when Upflex posts updated Terms of Service at this location or within the applicable Service and the “Last updated” date set forth above will be updated accordingly. Your continued access or use of the Service after such posting confirms your consent to be bound by the updated Terms of Service. Any revisions to these Terms of Service will become effective the first time you access or use the Service after such changes have been posted. If you do not agree to abide by these Terms of Service, you are not authorized to use, access or participate in (or continue to use, access or participate in) the Service.
These Terms of Service require the use of arbitration to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also limit the remedies available to you in the event of a dispute.
THE SERVICE COMPRISES AN ONLINE PLATFORM THROUGH WHICH A SPACE PARTNER MAY CREATE LISTINGS FOR SPACES, AND GUESTS MAY LEARN ABOUT AND BOOK SPACES DIRECTLY WITH THE SPACE PARTNER. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT UPFLEX IS NOT A PARTY TO ANY AGREEMENTS ENTERED INTO BETWEEN SPACE PARTNERS AND GUESTS, NOR IS UPFLEX A REAL ESTATE BROKER, AGENT, OR INSURER. UPFLEX HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE CONDUCT OF SPACE PARTNERS, GUESTS, AND OTHER USERS OF THE SERVICE OR ANY SPACES, AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY IN THIS REGARD TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOUR TRANSACTIONS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND INTERACTIONS WITH ANY OTHER USERS (INCLUDING ANY INTERACTIONS BETWEEN A GUEST AND A SPACE PARTNER), INCLUDING TRANSACTIONS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND INTERACTIONS INITIATED THROUGH THE SERVICE, ARE SOLELY BETWEEN YOU AND SUCH USERS, AND YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH TRANSACTIONS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND INTERACTIONS. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, NO PORTION OF THE FEES WILL DEEMED TO BE COMPENSATION FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE PROVISION OF THE SERVICE.
You must be at least 18 years old and able to enter into legally binding contracts to access and use the Service and/or register an Upflex Account (defined below) By accessing or using the Service, you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older and have the legal capacity and authority to enter into a contract.
In order to use certain features of the Service, you must register for an account (“Upflex Account”) and provide information about yourself as prompted by the account registration form. You represent and warrant that: (a) all required registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; and (c) that you are not located in a country that is subject to U.S. government embargo or that has been designated by the U.S. government as a “terrorist supporting” country, and you are not listed on any U.S. government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
If you are registering an Upflex Account for a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to legally bind that entity and grant Upflex all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms of Service. A company or entity member is responsible for the compliance of each of its individual members (e.g., its employees, contractors, and other service providers).
Each individual User may not register more than one Upflex Account unless Upflex authorizes you to do so. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your Upflex Account to another party.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Upflex Account login information and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Upflex Account. You agree to immediately notify Upflex of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use of your Upflex Account or any other breach of security. Upflex cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
You may delete your Upflex Account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions on our Site or within the Mobile Application. Upflex may terminate or suspend your Upflex Account in accordance with “Termination and Suspension” below.
GUESTS, MEMBERSHIP, AND FEES
Users may purchase access to a Space or a membership through the Service. Details about purchasing access to a Space and/or a membership are available under “Pricing” on the Site or the Mobile Application. When a User completes a reservation for a Space (thus becoming a Guest), you agree to pay the applicable fees and charges and other pricing terms applicable to your use of the Service as specified in these Terms of Service and as otherwise communicated to you through the Service, including any applicable fees and service charges. All fees and charges paid by Users in connection with the Service are non-refundable, except as expressly stated in these Terms of Service. All fees for Spaces are paid by Guest to Upflex and Space Partners may not ask Guests to pay a Space Partner directly for use of a Space. Space Partner may ask Guest to pay for incidental fees incurred while using the Space that are not included in the Space fees (e.g., printing, courier services).
Use of the Service and all Spaces by Guests is governed by the “Guest Code of Conduct” set forth below.
Upflex reserves the right to change its pricing and access options for Spaces in its sole discretion. Our current pricing will always be available under “Pricing” on the Site or the Mobile Application.
Upflex has no control over and does not guarantee (a) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Space; (b) the accuracy of any Space listing, ratings, reviews, or other User Content (as defined below); or (c) the performance or conduct of any User and/or third party. Upflex does not endorse any User, Guests, Space Partners, or Spaces. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to accept a booking request from a User, use a Space, or communicate and interact with other Users, whether online or in person.
CHANGES, CANCELLATIONS, AND REFUNDS
Space Partners and Guests are responsible for any changes to a booking that they make through the Service or direct Upflex customer service, including payment of any additional fees, services charges, and/or taxes associated with such changes.
Guests can cancel an accepted booking at any time. If a Guest cancels an accepted booking at least 24 hours in advance, Upflex will refund any applicable fees. If a Guest cancels an accepted booking less than 24 hours in advance, there will be no refund of applicable fees.
If a Space Partner cancels a confirmed booking, the Guest will receive a full refund of applicable fees for such booking within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation. In some instances, Upflex may allow the Guest to apply the refund to a new booking, in which case Upflex will credit the amount against the Guest’s subsequent booking at the Guest’s direction.
In certain circumstances, Upflex may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary to cancel a confirmed booking and make an appropriate refund. In such circumstances, the Guest will receive a full refund of applicable fees for such booking.
If a Guest cancels a confirmed booking or Upflex determines that it is necessary to cancel a confirmed booking, and such cancellation necessitates a refund to the Guest in accordance with these Terms of Service, the Space Partner agrees if the Space Partner has already received payment for such booking, Upflex will be entitled to recover the amount of such refund from Space Partner, including by offsetting such refund amount out from any future payments due to Space Partner.
RATINGS AND REVIEWS
Within a certain time frame after completing a Space booking, Guests and Space Partners may submit a public review and rating about the other party. Ratings and reviews by Guests and Space Partners must be accurate and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Ratings and reviews must specifically adhere to “Prohibited Activities” set forth below.
Users are prohibited from manipulating the ratings and reviews system in any manner, such as instructing a third party to write a positive or negative review about a Guest or Space Partner.
Ratings and reviews reflect the opinions of individual Guests and Space Partners and do not reflect the opinion of Upflex. Ratings and reviews are not verified by Upflex for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading. You acknowledge and agree that other Users and Space Partners may publicly post ratings and reviews of you, and that Upflex may, but is not obligated to, monitor such postings. Upflex is not responsible in any manner for such ratings and reviews, and you hereby release Upflex from any and all claims, causes of actions, obligations or liabilities arising from or relating to such ratings and reviews.
Upflex may, in its sole discretion, enable Users to (a) create, upload, post, send, receive and store content, such as text, photos, audio, video, or other materials and information on or through the Service (“User Content”); and (b) access and view User Content and any content that Upflex itself makes available on or through the Service, including proprietary Upflex content and any content licensed or authorized for use by or through Upflex from a third party (“Upflex Content”) (together, Upflex Content and User Content shall be referred to “Collective Content”).

Accordingly, you represent and warrant that: (a) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all User Content that you make available on or through the Service or you have all rights, licenses, consents and releases that are necessary to grant to Upflex the rights in and to such User Content, as contemplated under these Terms of Service; and (b) neither the User Content nor your posting, uploading, publication, submission, or transmittal of the User Content or Upflex’s use of the User Content (or any portion thereof) will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.

Please note that, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), any misrepresentation of material fact (falsities) in a written notification automatically subjects the complaining party to liability for any damages, costs and attorney’s fees incurred by us in connection with the written notification and allegation of copyright infringement.

TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN GUESTS AND SPACE PARTNERS FOR BOOKING SPACES
Upflex offers the Service as a platform to connect Space Partners and Guests and to facilitate the booking of Spaces between the Space Partners and Guests. You understand and agree that Upflex does not act as an insurer or a Guest’s contracting agent or real estate broker. If a Guest requests to book a Space and/or ultimately uses a Space offered by a Space Partner, Upflex is not a party to any agreement entered into between the Guest and the Space Partner.
If you utilize a Space offered by a Space Partner, such Space Partner may require you to sign in and provide certain information upon arrival at the Space. Any communications and/or marketing from Space Partner to Guest as a result is solely the responsibility of Space Partner. Upflex has no control over or responsibility for such communications and/or marketing and Guest may unsubscribe in accordance with instructions provided by Space Partner.
GUEST CODE OF CONDUCT
All Guests visiting any Space booked through Upflex must abide by the Upflex Code of Conduct, which means adhering to the following:
- Be respectful. Respect the Space rules and others in the Space.
- Clean up after yourself. Shared spaces need everyone to be responsible for themselves and to pitch in to clean up.
- Kindness is cool. Treat others well. Offer and find business solutions for others and they will do the same.
- The Space is for working. Spaces are a great place to meet people and exchange ideas, but don’t be a distraction. Please keep social interaction to a minimum in areas where people are working.
- Use the Space safely and legally. Spaces are not meant for any usage that could be considered “high risk” or for carrying out any illegal activities, nor any immoral, unlawful, or objectionable purposes.
SPACE USE AND ACCESS
Guests agree to use the Space provided for general office purposes only. Guests may not use the Space to carry out any illegal activities or use the Space (a) in violation of law, and Space rules, or any other reasonable regulations or rules adopted by the Space Partner, or (b) for any immoral, unlawful, or objectionable purposes. Guests shall not use or permit the usage of any illegal drug or substance and shall not make or permit any unreasonable or unnecessary noises or odors in or upon the Space or the building in which the Space is located. Guests shall not commit, or suffer to be committed, any waste upon the Space or any nuisance (public or private) or other act or thing of any kind or nature whatsoever that may disturb the quiet enjoyment or cause unreasonable annoyance of any other occupants of the Space or the building in which the Space is located.
Guests agree not to exceed the Maximum Occupancy of the Space.
Guests shall not make alterations, additions or improvements to the Space, including the installation of lighting or any phone or data lines.
Guests shall not generate, store, install, dispose of or otherwise handle any hazardous materials in the Space, or in or around the building in which the Space is located, in any manner contrary to any applicable law. Guests shall be liable for the costs of any removal, clean-up and/or remediation of any hazardous materials released by you or your Invitees.
Guests agree that the Space Partner has the right to require that you relocate to another Space in the same building of equal or larger size and similar configuration for the remainder of your reservation, provided that the fees for such new Space are no greater than the fees for your current Space.
The Space Partner or its authorized representatives may enter the Space at any time. Unless there is an emergency, the Space Partner will, as a matter of courtesy, try to inform you in advance when the Space Partner needs access to the Space to carry out testing, repair or work other than routine inspection, cleaning and maintenance.
Guests must take good care of and not damage, waste or make any changes to the Space or space leased or owned by the Space Partner of which the Space is a part, or the building in which the Space is located (collectively, the “Space Partner Area”). Guests shall not alter, add, replace, remove or damage any furnishings, equipment or other personal property located in, on or around the Space Partner Area. At the end of the Term, the Guest must deliver the Space to the Space Partner in good condition, normal wear and tear excepted. If any damage (beyond normal wear and tear) to the Space should occur while in your care, custody or control, you agree to pay reasonable repair/replacement costs and to notify the Space Partner immediately upon discovery of such damage occurring. Guests are liable for any damage caused by such Guest or by such Guest’s Invitees to the Space Partner Area.
If available at the Building, a Guest may also have access to and non-exclusive use of any portions of the Building designated for common use of tenants and others (“Common Areas”), as, and to the extent, described in the House Rules. Common Areas may be changed, relocated, altered, eliminated or otherwise modified at any time during the Term without the consent of, or notice to, Guest. Unless otherwise set forth in the House Rules, the right to parking is not provided to Guests.
If available, Guests may also have access to and non-exclusive use of any shared office equipment and kitchenettes (the “Shared Facilities”) located near the Space on a first-come, first-served basis as, and to the extent, described in the Space rules. The Space Partner may make changes to the Shared Facilities from time to time during the Term including, without limitation, removal of all or portions of the Shared Facilities without your consent or notice to Guest.
KEYS AND SECURITY
Any keys or entry cards for the Space which the Space Partner lets a Guest use remain the Space Partner’s property at all times. Guests shall not make any copies of them or allow anyone else to use them without the Space Partner’s consent. Any loss of keys or entry cards must be reported to the Space Partner immediately, and Guests must pay the cost of replacement keys or cards and or changing locks, if required by the Space Partner. Guests shall not place any additional locks or bolts of any kind upon any of the doors or windows of the Space, nor make any changes to existing locks or the mechanisms thereof.
Guests hereby unconditionally release Upflex from any loss, liability, claim, demand, damage, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, which you now have of have ever had against Upflex relating in any way to your use of the Service, including but not limited to your use of a Space and/or interaction with a Space Partner through our Service.

The Service and User Content are provided on an “as is” and “as available basis”, and Upflex expressly disclaims any and all warranties and conditions of any kind, whether express, implied, or statutory, including all warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, quiet enjoyment, accuracy, or non-infringement. We make no warranty that the Service will meet your requirements, will be available on an uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free basis, or will be accurate, reliable, free of viruses or other harmful code, complete, legal, or safe. We make no warranty that the Service or any Space reservation or booking will meet your requirements, or that any Space meets applicable legal standards and is safe or suitable for your intended use. Upflex cannot guarantee and does not promise to Space Partners and Guests, and Space Partners cannot guarantee and do not promise to Guests, any specific results from the use of the Service or a Space. If applicable law requires any warranties with respect to the Site and/or Mobile Application, all such warranties are limited in duration to 90 days from the date of first use. THE DISCLAIMERS SET FORTH ABOVE IN THIS SECTION APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
