By renewing (or not cancelling) your membership, you agree to and are bound by the terms of this Agreement.
Nature of this Agreement
The whole of the Facility remains in our possession and control. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THIS MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT CREATES NOTENANCY INTEREST, LEASEHOLD ESTATE, USUFRUCT, OR OTHER REAL PROPERTY INTEREST IN YOUR FAVOR WITH RESPECT TO THE FACILITY. YOU FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT NEITHER THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY US NOR THIS MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT SHALL IN ANY MANNER CREATE OR CONSTITUTE A LANDLORD/TENANT RELATIONSHIP. Instead, we are giving you the right to share with us the use of the Facility on the terms provided herein so that you can receive the Services. This Membership Agreement is personal to you and cannot be transferred to anyone else.
Term of this Agreement
This Agreement shall be effective when your initial payment has been received. The initial term of this Agreement shall be for two months (the “Initial Membership Term”) and will automatically renew on a monthly basis until terminated by you or us. If you join mid-month, the first month’s membership fee and Hours will be pro-rated. All Roam memberships expire and/or renew on the last day of the month (the “Renewal Date”) and the next month’s membership fee will be charged on or about the 1st day of the month. If you decide for any reason not to renew your membership, you must give us written notice on or before the 25th of the month prior to the next renewal date. If we decide for any reason not to renew your membership, we will give you written notice containing the date of termination.
Fees and Payment
Membership fees are posted on the Roam website and are subject to change. We will post any increase in fees at least 30 days prior to any increase. All amounts are in U.S. dollars.
Your monthly membership fee includes the use of the Facility for the number of hours per month at the membership level for which you have applied (Café, Gold, Platinum, Group, etc.) (“Hours”). If you use the Facility for more than the allotted Hours, you will be charged for the overage according to our then-current rates. You agree to pay the Initial Membership Term fee, even if you terminate this Agreement at the end of the first month. There is no rollover of unused Hours in a given month. Amenities for the month paid for are provided starting the first day of the next month.
By clicking on the “Place Order” button, you hereby authorize us to initiate a charge to your credit card in the amount indicated below plus a one-time activation fee of $35. Additional members that are added to Platinum Group Memberships will require a one-time $10 activation fee per person. Your initial order is for two months (the Initial Membership Term), which will be charged in two monthly amounts, and will be automatically renewed there after on a monthly basis until terminated by you or Roam. Your order includes our automatic renewal service. This means you authorize Roam to automatically charge the then-current monthly renewal fee to the credit card stored with your account before your subscription expires.
No charges other than your monthly membership will be automatically charged to your credit card. If your credit card is cancelled or a charge is declined, failure to update the card information by the 10th
of the then-current month may result in suspension or termination of your access and/or your account. You agree that you will not dispute any valid charges unless you have already made an effort in good faith to rectify the situation directly, and those efforts have failed. You represent and warrant you are the legal cardholder for this credit card, and that you are legally authorized to enter into this recurring agreement with Roam.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we may terminate this Agreement immediately by giving you written notice and without need to follow any additional procedure if (a) you become insolvent, file a petition for bankruptcy, go into liquidation or become unable to pay your debts as they fall due, or (b) you are in breach of one of your obligations which cannot be cured or which we have given you notice of default and which you have failed to cure within fourteen (14) days of that notice, or (c) your conduct, or that of someone at the Facility with your permission or invitation, violates our policies. If we terminate this Agreement for any of the above reasons it does not terminate any outstanding obligations, including additional services used and the monthly fee for the remainder of the period for which this Agreement would have lasted if we had not terminated it.
In the event that we are permanently unable to provide the Services at the Facility for which you selected during signup then this Agreement will terminate when such Facility closes and you will only have to pay monthly fees up to the date the Facility closes and for the additional services you have used up to the date of termination. We will use commercially reasonable efforts try to find suitable alternative accommodation(s) for you at another Facility.
