As a Member, you may create Listings. To create a Listing, you will be asked a variety of questions about the workspace to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, capacity, size, features, and availability of the workspace and pricing and related rules and financial terms. In order to be featured in Listings via the Site, Application and Services, all workspaces must have valid physical addresses. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site, Application and Services. You understand and agree that the placement or ranking of Listings in search results may depend on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, Guest and Host preferences, ratings and/or ease of booking.
Other Members will be able to book your space via the Site, Application and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing, your Guest requirements, and Guests' search parameters and preferences. You understand and agree that once a Guest requests a booking of your workspace, you may not request the Guest to pay a higher price than in the booking request.
If you are a Host, you understand and agree that Buffrspace does not act as an insurer or as your contracting agent. If a Guest requests a booking of your space and stays at your workspace, any agreement you enter into with such Guest is between you and the Guest and Buffrspace is not a party to it.
When you create a Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements which must be met by the Members who are eligible to request a booking of your Buffrspace, such as requiring Members to have a profile picture or verified phone number, in order to book your workspace. Any Member wishing to book workspaces included in Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements. More information on how to set such requirements is available via the "Hosting" section of the Site, Application and Services. If you are a Host, Buffrspace makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm or pre-approve for booking for your listed workspace. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Host, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who reside at or are otherwise present at the workspace at your request or invitation, excluding the Guest (and the individuals the Guest invites to the workspace, if applicable.)
BuffrSpace may offer Hosts the option of having photographers take photographs of their workspaces. If you as a Host choose to have our photographer do this, BuffrSpace shall own all copyrights in photographs taken but these photographs will be made available to you to include in your Listing with a watermark or tag bearing the words "Buffrspace.com Verified Photo" or similar wordings as "Verified Images". You agree that you alone are responsible for ensuring that your Listing is accurately represented in the Verified Images. You alone are responsible for using the Verified Images for your Listing and you warrant that you will cease to use the Verified Images or any other images if such images cease to accurately represent your Listing or if you cease to be a Host for the Listing featured. All images, materials and content created by these photographers, including Verified Images, constitute Buffrspace Content, regardless of whether you include them in your Listing and you agree not to use them except in your Listing without prior authorization from Buffrspace. If your Buffrspace Account is terminated or suspended for any reason, you shall not use Verified Images in any way. You agree that BuffrSpace retains its right to and may use the Verified Images for advertising, marketing, commercial and other business purposes in any media or platform, whether in relation to your Listing or otherwise, without further notice or compensation.
BuffrSpace does not endorse any Member, Listing or Accommodation. You understand that Verified Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of the Workspace at the time the photograph was taken. Verified Images are therefore not an endorsement by Buffrspace of any Member or Space Listing.
Members are required by these Terms to provide accurate information. Although BuffrSpace may, for transparency, fraud prevention or detection purposes, directly or through third parties, ask you to provide a form of government identification, your date of birth, and other information, or undertake additional checks and processes designed to help verify or check the identities or backgrounds of Members and/or screen Member information against third party databases or other sources, we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or the Member's purported identity or background.
Any references in the Site, Application or Services to a Member being "verified" or "connected" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by BuffrSpace about any Member, including of the Member's identity and whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Site, Application and Services. We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to stay at a desired workspace or to accept or preapprove a booking request from a Guest, or to have any other interaction with any other Member. Except as provided in the Buffrspace Host Guarantee Terms and Conditions ("Buffrspace Host Guarantee"), which is an agreement between Buffrspace and Hosts, we are not responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members.
We may make modifications, deletions or additions to these terms from time to time. Such changes will be effective: (i) thirty (30) days after we provide notice of the changes, whether such notice is provided through the user interface of our online services, is sent to the e-mail address associated with your account or otherwise; or (ii) when you opt-in or otherwise expressly agree to the changes or a version of these terms incorporating the changes, whichever comes first.
The Site, Application and Services are intended solely for persons who are 18 or older. Any access to or use of the Site, Application or Services by anyone under 18 is expressly prohibited. By accessing or using the Site, Application or Services you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older. If however anyone below 18 requires a workspace, you will have to co-sign up in company of a parent or guardian that meets the initial conditions.
Kindly be certain you qualify. You agree to provide us with accurate and complete information about yourself when you register with us and as you use our services. You also agree to keep your information up-to-date. Don’t reveal your account password or transfer your keycard or other location access device to anyone else (or let them use your account).

Linking to a company.
During the online registration process, you are asked to identify a company with whom your profile is associated. You agree that you will not falsely represent your association with any company, impersonate any third party or otherwise submit any false or misleading information to us. In the event your relationship with the company changes or is terminated, you agree to promptly update your profile to reflect this. Alternately, your individual account may have been created by an authorized representative of your employer. If you are an authorized representative, you hereby warrant and represent to us that you have the proper authority to create and terminate the company account and add and remove individual members to and from the account and agree to indemnify us for any loss we may suffer as a result of any breach of this warranty and representation.
By signing up for an account and providing your payment information, you agree to pay us the recurring or nonrecurring fees as displayed to you at the time of transaction. You acknowledge and agree that the payment instrument provided by you will be automatically charged the fees and any other amounts you may incur or be liable for (including for damages caused by you to any of your host locations or property) in connection with your BuffrSpace membership. Your use of the services may be immediately suspended if we are unable to charge such payment instrument for any reason.
Your continued use of the services following such notice and through the payment date constitutes your agreement to such modified fees. You may at any time cancel your account as set forth below if you do not agree to any modified fees.
Buffrspace's online platform facilitates bookings between Guests and Hosts who may prefer to pay in a currency different from their destination currency, which may require foreign currency conversions to accommodate these differing currency preferences. Although the Buffrspace platform allows users to view the price of Listings in various local currencies, the currencies available for users to make and receive payments may be limited, and may not include the default currency in any given geographic location.

For each contest, sweepstakes, and/or special event, we will post on the Site applicable rules for the event, and if necessary, post any supplemental terms and conditions or privacy provisions. To the extent there is a conflict between those privacy provisions and this policy, the privacy provisions for the specific event will govern.
