  1. Payments for Services 

    1. Monthly Subscription Fee
      Except as set forth in subsection (c) below, you will be charged and will pay to Company a monthly subscription fee in consideration of Company’s provision of the Services (the “Monthly Fees”).  Monthly Fees will be billed in advance on a per- Active Member (as defined herein) basis, based on the then-current pricing as set forth at: https://www.proximity.space/pricing. Please note that pricing is subject to change without notice.  With respect to the first month of your paid subscription to the Services, Monthly Fees for such month will be prorated to reflect the portion of the month your paid subscription to the Services was active and in effect.  Monthly Fees are fully earned upon payment and are non-refundable.  

For purposes of this Agreement, “Active Member” shall mean any Member (as defined below) that, on the Calculation Date (as defined below), meets at least one of the following criteria: (i) the Member has a recurring membership that is not a Default/Community Member (as defined below); (ii) the Member has been assigned a Proximity key to any of your Spaces, including free Default/Community Members; (iii) the Member has a recurring punch pass allowing access to any of your Spaces, or has redeemed a punch in the calendar month immediately preceding the Calculation Date; (iv) the Member has paid for access to any paid add-on services; or (v) the Member belongs to a shared membership and is not a “billing-only” member.  For the avoidance of doubt, an “Active Member” shall not include any individual who, as of the Calculation Date, is: (vi) a Default/Community Member who has no paid add-on services and no directly-assigned Proximity keys; (vii) a guest using a drop-in pass or other non-recurring pass that is not a punch pass; (viii) a non-Member guests who books reservable resources such as conference rooms and may be given temporary key access via their reservation; (ix) a non-Member meeting or event registrant; (x) a Space manager or Space owner; (xi) a “billing-only” member; or (xii) a holder of a secondary membership given for free through the Multi-Space Brand beta feature.

For purposes of this Agreement, “Calculation Date” means the first day of the calendar month (Mountain Time) for which the Monthly Fee is being calculated.  By way of example, the Monthly Fee owed for February of a given year will be based on the number of Active Members as of the end of the day January 31st 11:59pm MT.  You may view your Active Member count at the top of the dashboard on your Proximity account.  Additionally, “Default/Community Member” shall mean a Member that has registered under a free default or community membership through the Service.

  1. Billing
    You must, when registering for the Services, provide us with a valid payment method acceptable to Company (“Payment Method”) which we will keep on file.  By establishing an account and providing your Payment Method during registration, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge your Payment Method for fees and other amounts incurred hereunder, including, without limitation, the Monthly Fees, processing fees on refunds, and fees associated with payment disputes (which includes any amount we are unable to deduct from your Stripe account). Monthly Fees for a given calendar month will be processed on or after the 1st day of such month (mountain time).  We may also, on such date, process payment for any other previously accrued and outstanding costs and fees. 

  2. Trial Period
    Company may grant to you a 30-day trial period in which you will be granted access to some or all features of the Services without charge to you. If you have included a Payment Method and Stripe account to your account, your trial use of the Services will automatically be converted to a paying subscription after the end of your trial period, or alternatively, you may activate your account for a paying subscription at any time before the end of the 30-day trial period; provided a Payment Method and Stripe account have been set up. If you do not add these items to your account, your trial will end at the end of 30 days and your account will become inactive. Where you have provided a Payment Method and Stripe account, we will begin billing your Payment Method for Monthly Fees at the time of activation; or unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period.  You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial period has ended or that the paying portion of your Services subscription has begun. 

  3. Per Charge Fees
    In addition to the Monthly Fees set forth above, you will pay to Company additional service fees based on the amount of payments made to you through the Services by third parties, including users of your Spaces (“Members”), as more specifically set forth herein (“Charge Fees”).  Charge Fees are calculated as follows:

    1. For each Charge paid with a credit or debit card, an amount equal to $.30 plus 2.9% of the total dollar amount of the Charge (including all taxes or other fees imposed on the Charge); and

    2. For each Charge paid with an ACH debit out of a bank account, an amount equal to 1% of the total dollar amount of the Charge (including all taxes or other fees imposed on the Charge). 

    3. Fees for Spaces operating outside of the US may vary and can be found at https://www.proximity.space/coworking-software#pricing

    For purposes of this Agreement, a “Charge” means any electronic transaction made by means of the Services and with respect to which you are the payee, including without limitation,  a person or entity reserving, renting, or otherwise paying for access to or use of your Space through the Services, or paying membership fees. Where a transaction involves reserving a Space over a specific period of time (for example, one week) or otherwise covers multiple items paid for at the same time, such transaction constitutes one Charge for the purpose of calculating Charge Fees. Any transactions paid for by non-electronic means, including by physical check, shall not be considered a “Charge” and will not give rise to a Charge Fee. All Charge Fees will automatically be deducted from the amount payable to you and transferred to your Stripe account with respect to the applicable Charge. 

  1. Foreign Currency
    Where any Charge is made with respect to Spaces outside of the United States or otherwise in a currency other than US Dollars, we will, in our sole discretion, either (a) bill the Charge in US Dollars and instruct Stripe to convert the Change amount to US Dollars, at Stripe’s conversion rate at that time, or (b) bill the Charge in the applicable foreign currency. We reserve the right to require payment in US dollars where conversion is not offered by Stripe or is otherwise impractical, as determined in our discretion.  You shall be responsible for, and shall reimburse us for, any conversion fees or related costs arising from foreign currency conversion, which you hereby authorize us to transfer from your Stripe account to ours.

  2. Third-Party Payment Services; PSD2 Compliance
    We utilize a third-party payment service (currently Stripe) to process Charges and other transactions through our Services. Where Stripe is referenced in this document, it refers to the payment service provider then in use, which is subject to change at our discretion. Prior to your initial use of the Service, you must set up a Stripe account through the Stripe Connect Program.  In the event that we elect to change payment service providers, you will promptly set up an account with such new payment service provider, as instructed by us.  Any failure by you to secure and maintain a Stripe account (or such other payment service provider account as we may require) may result in a suspension of the Services.

    If you have any issues with transactions processed through Stripe or any successor payment service provider, you are responsible for resolving such issues directly between you and Stripe or the applicable payment service provider, except as set forth under the "Disputes from Members" section below. We are not responsible for, and shall have no liability with respect to, payment processing. In keeping with the January 13, 2018, EU Directive on Payment Services ("PSD2") and to the extent that we may assist in the facilitation of Member payments to Space Owners, we are not a licensed provider of regulated payment services and instead use third-party payment services with the requisite licensure(s), if any.

  1. Disputes from Members
    Upon receiving notice from a Member or other party of a dispute with respect to a Charge or other payment processed through the Services, we will reverse the transfer of the disputed amount from your Stripe account, which disputed amount may be held by the applicable bank, credit card company or other payment provider (“Payment Provider”). We will notify you of the dispute and outline the process and timing for providing evidence. We will then submit provided evidence to the applicable Payment Provider. If you do not provide timely evidence, you waive your right to do so. The decision of the Payment Provider concerning the validity of the Charge will be final. We will notify you of the result and any actions to be taken by the Payment Provider of which we are notified.
     
    If the dispute is found in favor of the Member, you shall be responsible for, and shall reimburse us for, any dispute fees or related costs imposed on us by Stripe or any applicable Payment Provider, which you hereby authorize us to transfer from your Stripe account to ours.

  1. User Cancellation of Reservations
    You are responsible to develop, maintain, and adhere to a cancellation policy with respect to each Space for which you utilize the Services (each, a “cancellation Policy”).  Each cancellation Policy should clearly outline, and will govern, when and under what circumstances refunds may be issued to Members for cancellations of Space reservations.

    You are solely responsible for determining whether a refund is available to an applicable Member or other third party, and you agree to indemnify Company from and against all liability and expenses relating thereto.  If you notify us that you have authorized the issuance of a refund to any Member for any Charge made by means of the Services, we will transfer the refunded amount from your Stripe account back to the applicable Member. This may require us to transfer the amount back to our Stripe account, to be refunded from there, depending upon Stripe’s functionality.

    Any refunds made pursuant to this Section shall be made without deduction of any fees.  You will remain liable for and shall pay all Charge Fees with respect to the relevant Charge,  which Charge Fees shall be based on the original Charge amount without taking account of any refund.

  1. Disclaimers, Waivers, and Indemnification
