Common Grounds is a monthly subscription service that gives our members access to workspaces all over the world. Below follows the general terms and conditions of use, which may be updated by CG without given notice to users (the Terms and Conditions, as modified, the “T&C”). The most updated version of the T&C can be accessed at any time at https://www.commongrounds.co
By accessing, browsing, and/or using the website, you accept and agree to be bound to these T&Cs. In addition, when using particular CG services, you also shall be subject to any posted guidelines, FAQs, or rules applicable to such services, which may be posted and modified over time.
Accessible work days. Members receive days of workspace time each membership month (“Accessible work days”) to be used to visit any workspace of their choice available on our platform. For Fulltime memberships, this amounts to 21 full working days, during each membership month. For Halftime memberships, this amounts to 10 full working days, during each membership month.
Members cannot transfer or gift work days to third parties, including other Common Grounds members. CG reserves the right to increase the number of accessible work days a member can take in a given month (such as pursuant to certain promotions that we may offer from time to time). CG makes no guarantee on the availability of workdays as access to workspaces is on a space-available basis. Once all work days in the membership has been used, members can no longer access the partner venues offered on the CG website.
Guest Hours. CG Members do currently not receive specific hours of time each membership cycle for guests (Guest Hours) to be used to invite friends or colleagues (guests) to join them at participating workspaces on our platform. However, if accepted by the partnering venue provided on the CG platform, guests are welcome to join for shorter period of time. In example, a meeting. If this is not accepted by the partnering venue, the guest shall pay the daily rate, which normally applies to users of the partner venue.
Rollover days. Members do not have Rollover days enabled for their memberships, which means that unused work days will be lost once the new billing cycle starts.
Your CG membership starts on the date that you sign up for a subscription and submit payment via a valid Payment Method. Each CG cycle is one month in length, and will automatically renew each month. For example, if you purchase your CG membership on April 5, your membership will automatically renew on May 5 (see “Billing Cycles,” below). Once your new month starts, you will receive your full number of work days for such new monthly cycle.
You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, “Payment Method”) to use CG. We automatically will bill the monthly membership fee to your Payment Method each month until your CG membership is cancelled or terminated.
Recurring Billing. By starting your CG membership, you authorize us to charge you a monthly membership fee at the then current rate.
Billing Cycle. When you sign up and purchase your CG, your first subscription cycle will be billed immediately. Your subscription will auto-renew and you will be billed on the same date each month. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular, as indicated below, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled. In the event your paying membership began on a day not contained in a given month, we may bill your Payment Method on a day in the applicable month or such other day as we deem appropriate. For example, if you started your CG membership or became a paying member on January 31st, your next payment date is likely to be February 28th, and your Payment Method would be billed on that date. Your renewal date may change due to changes in your Membership. You are responsible for paying your renewal fee if you do not cancel your membership with appropriate notice.
No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information in your account settings. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see “Cancellation” below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. Cancellation. You may terminate your monthly subscription at any time by clicking on the cancel link in the account settings. However, your first month cannot be cancelled and is non-refundable. For example, if your next billing date is September 25th, you need to cancel by September 24th in order to avoid being charged for the next month. Note that if you do terminate your membership, you will have to pay the regular rate for a membership if you want to return to CG in future months, as if you were a new member.
Trials. From time to time we may offer a trial membership that includes standard access to the CG platform during the trial period. Unless otherwise communicated, a trial begins at the moment of sign up and ends at 11:00pm CET on the last day of the trial (for a one-week trial, this would be the same weekday of following week). Each trial membership automatically will convert to a regular monthly membership and price unless canceled by 11:00pm CET on the day before the last day of trial. Customers that cancel and do not convert to a regular membership may not go to workspaces after the end of the trial membership period (even if the held a seat before the end of the applicable trial period). Unless we expressly communicated otherwise, trial memberships are only available to new customers that have never had a CG account before, are not transferable, may not be combined with other offers or redeemed for cash and are void where prohibited.
Amenities. Your CG membership covers your access to hours of work at open format coworking desk space (lounge areas and so called flex desks) at venues on the CG platform. Some of our venues may also charge equipment or other amenity fees. The CG only gives you access to the regular, open format coworking desk space for which you signed up. The venue may have additional fees for use of additional amenities or spaces, such as conference rooms.
Conference rooms. Any fees which we may charge you for the use of conference rooms will be as set out on our website or mobile application at the time of purchase, are inclusive of any taxes payable, are due immediately and are non-refundable. This no refund policy shall apply at all times regardless of your decision to terminate your usage, our decision to terminate your usage, disruption caused to our website, mobile application or venues, either planned, accidental or intentional, or any reason whatsoever. We reserve the right to determine final prevailing pricing. You do hereby agree that you shall be charged fees based on the length of time of your booking of the conference rooms (regardless if you only make use of the conference rooms for less than your booked time). If you exceed the amount of time for which you booked a conference room, then you shall be charged for such excess time, as well as an overage charge if such excess time conflicts with another member's booked time. You do hereby consent to such excess time charges and to such overage charge. At our sole discretion, we may make promotional offers with different features and different rates to any of our customers. These promotional offers, unless made to you, shall have no bearing whatsoever on your offer or contract.
You agree that CG, in its sole discretion and for any or no reason, may terminate any account (or any part thereof) you may have with CG or use of the website and remove and discard all or any part of your account or any content uploaded by you, at any time. CG may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing access to the website, or any part thereof, with or without notice. This includes discontinuing access at one or more venues on CG platform. You agree that any termination of your access to the website or any account you may have or portion thereof may be effected without prior notice, and you agree that CG will not be liable to you or any third party for any such termination. CG does not permit copyright infringing activities on the website and reserves the right to terminate access to the website and remove all content submitted by any persons who are found to be repeat infringers.
