Member agrees to the following payment terms:
- Payment must be made using one of the Workbar accepted credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.
- Your first and second Workbar membership payments will be the full membership amount of the last month's dues charged on completing signup and the pro-rated amount of your starting month dues charged on your selected start date.
- Members can change to a membership level of equal or greater value at any time; however, switching to a lower-value membership requires notice prior to the last business day of the previous month.
- Your last month's membership dues will be adjusted with all membership level changes.
YOUR COPY OF THE CANCELLATION EMAIL IS THE ONLY PROOF THAT VERIFIES YOUR CANCELLATION OF WORKBAR'S AUTHORIZATION TO DEDUCT YOUR MONTHLY DUES. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO RETAIN SUCH PROOF UNTIL THE DEDUCTIONS STOP.
The amount of your monthly deductions will not change, except as follows:
- If Workbar cannot deduct your monthly dues from your account, Workbar may without notice to you increase a subsequent deduction for the dues previously uncollected, plus up to a $25 service charge.
- If your dues have been increased or discounted due to a change in membership level as described above or if you have chosen to add/remove an à la carte service (mail services, storage, reserved meeting space hours, event space/planning, printing, postage, etc.)
- If Workbar decides to increase the monthly membership rate and sends you a written notification thirty-five (35) calendar days prior to the first day of the month for which the increased dues apply. Notice will be sent to your email address according to Workbar's membership records. It is your responsibility to make sure Workbar has your correct email and billing information on file.
- You will receive a timely refund of any dues deducted in error by Workbar provided that you inform Workbar in writing in the form of an email to email@example.com within ninety (90) days of when the error occurred.
(1) For memberships:
All of our memberships are billed on a month-to-month basis and require a first and last month’s deposit at the time of registration. A notice of cancellation is required in writing by email to firstname.lastname@example.org 30 days in advance (for example, if canceling June 1st, written notice must be sent before May 1st). We apply your last month's deposit to your final month.
Day passes are billed at the time of entry into the Workbar workspace and are non-refundable under any circumstances.
(2) For meeting & conference room reservations:
Clients are entitled to a full refund when the cancellation is made 8 or more days in advance of the meeting date. With 3-7 days notice, clients are entitled to a 50% refund. No refund will be given for less than 2 days notice.
If a booking is for multiple or consecutive days, the cancellation policy applies to each individual day within the booking.
Number of days noted in the above policy are business days, Monday-Friday.
For Workbar members, meeting room reservations are billed internally. Members are billed for their meeting room usage based on their membership levels.
(3) For event hosts:
If you are using a Workbar workspace as the venue for your event, you may cancel your event for a full refund at least 72 hours in advance of your event date. The cancellation must be submitted in writing by email to email@example.com or to your event coordinator.
If your cancellation is received within 72 hours prior to your event date, then you will be refunded 50% of your event fees.
No refunds or discounts are available once the event has begun.
(4) For event tickets:
If you have purchased a ticket for a Workbar-sponsored event, workshop, or other program, you may cancel your participation at least 24 hours before the start of the event for a full refund of the ticket price. The cancellation must be submitted in writing by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you cancel after 24 hours before the start of the event, you will receive a Workbar “credit” in the amount of the full price of the ticket. This credit can be used for future programming, a Workbar membership, meeting room reservations, or any other Workbar service.
Tickets are transferable to another party if the purchaser of the ticket is unable to attend the event.
If you have purchased a ticket for an event that is held at Workbar but is hosted by a separate party or organization, then you must contact that party directly regarding their refund policy. Workbar is in no way responsible for the payment or refund terms for outside organizations holding events within our workspace.
