Introduction and Acceptance of Terms 

Upsuite Corp. (“Upsuite”) provides services to connect Upsuite members (“Members”) with operators and their co-working spaces (the “Services”) plus software and analytics to support these endeavors. Operator desires to register your co-working space (Operator “Facility”) on Upsuite’s website located at www.upsuite.com (the “Website”) to be provided with the Services pursuant to these terms of service for operators (these “Terms”). By accessing and using the Website and registering for an operator account, Operator accepts these Terms and the Privacy Policy, which shall apply to the Services Upsuite provides Operator and are subject to change.

Registration

To use the Website and the Services, Operator must register and create an operator account. When Operator completes our registration form, you will be requested to provide your contact information and information about your Facility, and to complete all other information as may be required by the registration form. Such information may include your name (and/or the name of your company, address, phone number as well as register a valid credit card). Y

By registering for an operator account, you appoint Upsuite as a connecting agent for Members with authority to identify, inform, process and connect Members for you in connection with your Facility. 

As part of the Services, Upsuite may offer paid services to you and other operators outside of its free listing service. Upsuite reserves the right to promote operator facilities on third-party advertising platforms, using facility information consistent with the content on Upsuite’s official website advertisement.

Operator use of the Website and Operator Account

The Website, your operator account and Services are made available to you and provided exclusively for your personal use. You cannot use the Website in a manner that competes with Upsuite’s activities.

New Member Introductions

A successful introduction is made when Upsuite passes the contact information of a Member on to you for the Facility. This introduction is made by way of an email from Upsuite to you and the Member.  

New Member Rejection

Upsuite and the Members will assume that you and your Facility acknowledge and accept a new Upsuite member upon receipt of Upsuite’s email introduction, unless you respond by email to the Upsuite email introduction within 48 hours, stating that you reject the Member introduction. 

New Member Confirmation

Within a reasonable time frame of your receipt of Upsuite’s email introduction, you must use best efforts to enter into a written agreement with the Member. It is your responsibility to provide Upsuite by email at newmember@upsuite.com and provide the signed member agreement.  Once verified, Upsuite will send you a confirmation e-mail detailing all the terms and conditions applicable to the Services as well as the applicable Referral Fees.  You are also responsible for notifying Upsuite of any renewals or expansions that include fees under this agreement.   

Referral Fees 

When you have provided Upsuite with the information as set forth in the “New Member Confirmation” section above, the referral fees (the “Referral Fees”) owed by you to Upsuite for Upsuite’s introduction to you of the new Member, plus all applicable taxes, become payable. Upsuite’s Referral Fees are a portion of the total monthly rent paid by the Member to you for the first 12 months of the Member’s use of your Facility or services.  Here is a schedule of fees based on contract length, and facility occupancy at the time of lease signing:

Term of Member AgreementReferral Fee
Month to Month term10% billed monthly starting with new member confirmation
6 Month term10% of 6 month lease billed upon new member confirmation
12 month or greater term10% of 12 month lease billed upon new member confirmation
Renewal after 12 Months5% of 12 month lease billed upon new member confirmation

 

It is your sole responsibility to notify Upsuite of any agreement cancellations or non-renewals, within 15 days of notice being given to you.  Without such notification, Upsuite will continue billing as if the member was still using the space. 

If a Member signs up for a period of greater than 12 months, Upsuite is only entitled to agreement revenue up to 12 months, plus renewal amounts.  If a member signs an initial lease and then adds additional members or seats, Upsuite fees apply to the additional seats as well.  

If a Member signs up for an initial period of more than 12 months, but which include a rent-free period within the first year, Upsuite is entitled to Referral Fees calculated in accordance with the following structure: total monthly rent, multiplied by the total number of non-rent free months, divided by the number of months in the initial period, multiplied by 12, multiplied by the appropriate fee (in the schedule above). 

License Fee Increases

Should the total monthly rent payable by the Member increase during the term of your agreement with the Member, it will be your responsibility and obligation to advise Upsuite by email within 48 hours of the total monthly rent increase.  Should Upsuite raise fees on cloud services it will be upon renewal and Upsuite will advise of the increase prior to the renewal notice date. .
