Welcome to SpaceTogether, a website located at www.spacetogether.com (the “Site”) and operated by SpaceTogether, Inc. (“SpaceTogether”, “us”, “our”, and “we”). SpaceTogether provides the Site, mobile applications (“App”) (the Site and App collectively referred to as the “Platform”) and services provided through the Platform (“Services”) including a marketplace for owners of commercial space to advertise available commercial rental space to individuals or businesses who wish to rent such commercial space.
Type of Users
“The User,” “You” and “Your” refer to the person, company, or organization that has visited or is using the Platform and/or the Service. A User may be a Space Provider, a Renter, both, or neither.
“Space Provider” refers to users of the Platform, whether an individual or business who either owns commercial real estate or who leases or licenses space and has permission to sub-lease or sub-license the space, and who wish to rent space (“Space”) in a variety of flexible arrangements to Renters. Space Providers are not the employees or agents of SpaceTogether.
“Renter” refers to individuals or businesses who wish to rent Space from a Space Provider.
SpaceTogether is not a financial service provider, real estate broker, or lender. SpaceTogether does not provide real estate advice, agent services, broker services or financial services. SpaceTogether offers the Platform as a dedicated marketplace for Space Providers to post and provide a variety of flexible arrangements to rent Space to Renters, including hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly (each a “Rental Period”) and facilitate the collection and payout of rental fees (“Rental Fees”). Space Providers can post Space using the Platform, and Renters may request to rent Space from Space Providers. Once both the Space Provider and Renter agree to and sign the terms of the rental, a binding contract is formed between the Renter and the Space Provider (collectively, "Space Agreement"). All Space Providers and Renters must create an account to use the Services. As the provider of the Platform, SpaceTogether does not own, create, sell, resell, lease, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any listings, rental services, or act as a real estate agent or broker. SpaceTogether does not represent any party to a transaction or lease. SpaceTogether does not receive any commissions or referral fees from any resulting transactions.
Account Creation. In order to use certain features of the Services, you must register for an account with us (“your Account”) and provide certain information about yourself as prompted by the registration form. You represent and warrant that: (a) all required registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information. You may delete your Account at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions on the Platform. We may suspend or terminate your Account in accordance with the Terms and Termination.
Account Responsibilities. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account login information and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use, of your Account or any other breach of security. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
Relationship with SpaceTogether
SpaceTogether is Not a Party to Contracts. SpaceTogether is not a party to the dealings or Space Agreement between Renter and Space Provider, including posts, screening, selection, contracting, a User’s conduct, and performance of and payment for the Services. SpaceTogether does not provide real estate broker services. SpaceTogether makes the Platform available to enable Space Providers to identify and determine the suitability of Renters and to enable Renters to identify and determine the suitability of Space Providers. Space Providers are not the employees or agents of SpaceTogether. SpaceTogether does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control Space Provider.
SpaceTogether Does Not Guarantee Results. While we may help users resolve disputes, SpaceTogether makes no representations about, and does not guarantee the quality, safety, or legality of, the Space Provider services; the truth or accuracy of Space Provider’s posts on the Platform; the qualifications, background, or identities of Users; the ability of Space Providers to deliver the Space Provider services; or the ability of Renters to pay for the Space Provider services.
Space Providers Do Not Perform Services for SpaceTogether. The services performed by Space Providers (whether individually or through a business) are for Renters only. Space Providers do not perform services in any capacity, whether as a contractor or employee, for SpaceTogether. SpaceTogether merely makes the Platform available to enable Space Providers to identify and determine the suitability of Renters for themselves and to enable Renters to identify and determine the suitability of Space Providers for themselves. Nothing in these Terms will be deemed to create a partnership, joint venture, agency, broker-client relationship, or employer-employee relationship between Space Provider and SpaceTogether. SpaceTogether has no liability to Space Providers or any Renters if a determination legal or otherwise is made by a federal, state or local agency or authority that any Space Providers are employees of SpaceTogether. Space Providers are not entitled to any benefits or insurance coverage carried by SpaceTogether. Taxes will not be withheld for Space Providers from any payments issued to Space Provider. Space Providers are responsible for reporting their income to the IRS and paying taxes appropriately.
Posting. Renters and Space Providers are required to make truthful statements and material disclosures on any postings or applications that would enable the other user to make an informed decision on whether to exchange services with you. Posts must comply with any applicable legal requirements of the Space Provider’s jurisdiction.
Reviews. From time to time, Users may submit reviews of their experience with other Users; these reviews do not constitute a guarantee, warranty, or prediction regarding the outcome of any future matter. We will have no responsibility or liability of any kind for any User Content (defined below) you encounter on or through the Platform, and any use or reliance on User Content is solely at your own risk. Reviews may only be submitted based on User’s actual experience with another User. All reviews must be accurate, lawful, and abide by our Acceptable Use Policy (below). SpaceTogether reserves the right, in its sole discretion to remove/delete, or respond to any reviews that it believes may be untruthful, unlawful, or violate our Acceptable Use Policy.
Contact Restrictions. You agree that for all communication regarding Space Agreements, questions, disputes, or payment you will use the Platform for such communication, except for situations where Users must meet in person at the Space.
Information. You acknowledge and agree that Platform may provide information about a Space Provider or Renter, such as feedback, composite feedback, geographical location, or verification of identity or credentials. However, such information is based solely on data that Space Providers or Renters voluntarily submit to SpaceTogether and does not constitute and will not be construed as an introduction, endorsement, or recommendation by SpaceTogether. This information is provided on the Platform solely for the convenience of Users.
Taxes. SpaceTogether does not deduct any amount for withholding, unemployment, Social Security, or other taxes for Renter or Space Provider, each of which is solely responsible for all tax returns and payments required to be filed with or made to any federal, state, or local tax authority in any nation with respect to Space Provider’s performance, and Renter’s acceptance, of Space Provider services.
Compliance with Laws and Licensing. Both Space Providers and Renters are solely responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations when providing or receiving any Services. SpaceTogether does not determine whether a User is subject to, or in compliance with, any legal requirements.
Anti-Discrimination Policy. A Space Provider may not decline a Renter, impose any different terms or conditions on a Renter, or make any statement that discourages or indicates a preference for or against any Renter based on race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or other classification that is protected by the laws of the geographic location of the Space Provider.
User Safety. Because of the type of service involved, a Renter and Space Provider may be required to meet in person. Users should undertake reasonable precautions when meeting in person. SpaceTogether is not responsible for any interactions, whether online, offline, or in person, between a Renter and Space Provider. Renters and Space Providers agree to indemnify SpaceTogether for any claim that may arise relating to damages caused because of an in-person meeting.
Damage to Property. SpaceTogether is not responsible for any damage to a Space Provider’s property caused by any Renter or an invitee of Renter during the Rental Period or at any time a Renter or invitee is on the premises. Renters and Space Providers agree to indemnify SpaceTogether for any claim that may arise relating to damage to any person or property.
No Legal Advice. For Users’ convenience, SpaceTogether may provide third-party services that help facilitate the generation and execution of Space Agreements for the Rental Period. By providing this service, Users acknowledge that SpaceTogether is not providing legal advice, real estate services, acting as a broker, or certifying that any Space Agreement entered by the Users on the Platform is legally enforceable.
Viewing a Space. SpaceTogether does not work directly with any Space Providers. To view any Space in person that is seen on our Platform, you must contact the Space Provider directly through the Platform or a licensed real estate agent to set up appointments to see the Space in person.
Terms of Space Agreement. Space Provider is solely responsible for determining specific terms of engagement to Renters, such as Rental Period, fees, and other such restrictions. All such terms are determined at the discretion of Space Provider. SpaceTogether is not involved in determining Space Agreement terms, does not set or define the Rental Fees, or provide legal advice with respect to the Space Agreement and does not provide real estate or broker services.
Accepted Leases. Once the terms of the Space Agreement are accepted and agreed by the Renter and Space Provider, a binding contract is created between Renter and Space Provider. Renter and Space Provider are responsible for meeting their obligations under the Space Agreement, applicable laws, and these Terms.
Rental Fee Payment. Upon acceptance of a Space Agreement, Renter will be charged the Rental Fee, including any transaction fee imposed by SpaceTogether. All information that you provide in connection with a purchase or transaction must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, or other payment method used in connection with a purchase or transaction at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. Renter must keep current payment information on file with us and Renter’s account must be adequately funded to pay for any services rendered. Renter will pay any applicable taxes, if any, relating to any such purchases or transactions. By agreeing to these Terms, you are giving us permission to charge your on-file credit card, ACH, or other approved methods of payment for fees that you authorize us to satisfy.
Transaction Fees. To provide the Platform and facilitate the ability to enter transactions through our Platform, we may charge a transaction fee to both Renters and Space Providers. The transaction fee may either be based on a percentage of the total cost of the Space Agreement or a fixed fee. We may change the transaction fee in our sole discretion. Users will be notified of any changes in the transaction fee.
Timing of Payout to Space Provider. SpaceTogether will issue payment of Rental Fees to Space Provider, less any transaction fees imposed by SpaceTogether, within a reasonable time after Renter’s payment clears in SpaceTogether’s system (typically within two (2) days of payment clearing, unless such date falls on a weekend or holiday).
Pricing and Subscriptions. Certain aspects of the Services may be provided for a fee, subscription or other charge. If you purchase a subscription from SpaceTogether, this subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle, at which point you will automatically be charged on your anniversary date for the next billing cycle. If you upgrade your subscription you will be prorated for the remainder of the billing cycle and you will be billed the full price of the upgraded subscription the following month. One-time purchases will be charged at the time of the transaction. SpaceTogether may add new services for additional fees and charges, add or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in its sole discretion. Any change to our pricing or payment terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in these Terms.
Chargebacks. Renter acknowledges that SpaceTogether has a dispute resolution process in the event you have a dispute concerning the Services provided to you. If you have a dispute concerning any payment transaction, please contact our billing department. If, at any time, you contact your bank or credit card company to reject the charge of any payable Fees (“Chargeback”), this act will be considered a breach of your payment obligations, and we reserve the right to automatically terminate your use of the Services. We reserve the right to dispute any Chargeback and take all reasonable action to authorize the transaction. In the event of a Chargeback, your User Account may be terminated and any files, data, or content contained in your Account may be subject to cancellation. We will not be liable for any loss of files, data or content as a result of a Chargeback. Without limiting other available remedies, Renter must pay SpaceTogether upon demand for amounts owed under these Terms, plus interest on the outstanding amount at the lesser of one percent (1%) per month or the maximum interest allowed by applicable law, plus attorneys’ fees and other costs of collection to the extent permitted by applicable law.
Dispute Resolution Procedures
Our dispute procedures are for the benefit of our Users to help facilitate the transaction between Renters and Space Providers and to protect the integrity of our Platform so our Users have an enjoyable experience. Renters must first attempt to deal directly with Space Providers and vice versa to resolve any disputes. If the dispute cannot be resolved, and if a User has a good faith belief that a User’s conduct is not consistent with the Space Agreement (“Disputed Matter”), User will be permitted to submit a dispute (and request a refund, if submitted by Renter) subject to the following terms and conditions.
Notice Period. Within forty-eight (48) hours of the end of the Rental Period (the “Dispute Notice Period”), the User will provide written notice to SpaceTogether by opening a help desk ticket setting forth in reasonable detail the facts and circumstances which are the basis of the disputed matter (each, a “Dispute Notice”). The User’s failure to submit a Dispute Notice within the Dispute Notice Period will constitute such User’s permanent waiver of his or her right to dispute the Space Agreement (and request a refund, if submitted by Renter).
Notice Requirements. A Disputed Notice will only be accepted if the content User specifically describes, in reasonable detail, why these requirements and/or terms of the Space Agreement have not been met.
Mediation Period. If the User does submit a Dispute Notice within the Dispute Notice Period, SpaceTogether will attempt in good faith to work with the Renter and Space Provider for a period of up to fifteen (15) calendar days from the date of the Dispute Notice (the “Disputed Matter Mediation Period”) to resolve the Disputed Matter. If the Disputed Matter is successfully resolved within the Disputed Matter Mediation Period, each of the Renter, Space Provider and, if relevant, SpaceTogether will take the agreed upon steps to execute the agreed-upon resolution. If the agreed-upon resolution results in return of any portion of Renter’s payment, SpaceTogether will issue a refund the agreed-upon amount within fifteen (15) days from the date the Disputed Matter is resolved. If SpaceTogether has already released the Rental Fee to Space Provider at the time of Disputed Matter is resolved, Space Provider agrees to return the agreed-upon amount to SpaceTogether.
Final Determination. If the Disputed Matter remains unresolved after the Disputed Matter Mediation Period, by no later than fifteen (15) days after the end of the Disputed Matter Mediation Period, SpaceTogether will make a determination in its sole and absolute discretion (the “Disputed Matter Decision”), and based upon the information provided by the Renter and Space Provider. If it is determined that a refund, either full or partial, is warranted, SpaceTogether will refund the determined amount within fifteen (15) days from the date the Disputed Matter Decision. If SpaceTogether has already released the Rental Fee to Space Provider as of the date of the Disputed Matter Decision, Space Provider agrees to return the determined amount to SpaceTogether. Should SpaceTogether decide the Disputed Matter in favor of the Space Provider, the Renter will not be entitled to a refund and SpaceTogether will release any held funds to Space Provider.
Waiver. You agree that we are not responsible for the accessibility or unavailability of any User or for your interactions and dealings with them. You waive the right to bring or assert any claim against us relating to any interactions or dealings with any User and release us from any and all liability for or relating to any interactions or dealings with another User. Renter and Space Provider both waive any claim against SpaceTogether relating to our Resolution Procedure. SpaceTogether will not be held responsible and expressly disclaims any liability whatsoever for any claims, demands or damages direct or indirect of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
We expend tremendous resources to provide our Platform and Services, to connect you with other Users. You are prohibited from making side-agreements or engaging in activities that can be deemed competitive to SpaceTogether with any User outside of our Platform.
Once introduced to a User on our Platform, you are prohibited from entering into any business transactions or agreements with any User outside of our Platform at all times during your use of our platform and for a period of two years thereafter.
Renters agree not to make direct payments to any Space Provider and Space Providers agree not to accept any direct payments for the services provided. We will terminate a User’s access to and use of the Platform if such User is found to be making or accepting payment outside the Service to any User found through the Service.
Remedies for Violation of this Section. You recognize and agree that any violation of the disintermediation and non-circumvention provisions set forth above, either during the term or for two years after the termination of these Terms, will cause irreparable harm to Company. If you violate or threaten to violate any of these provisions, at any time during these Terms or after, we will have the right to enforce these terms by means of injunctive relief, in addition to money damages and other available legal remedy. You agree to pay SpaceTogether’s cost of pursuing judicial enforcement of these Terms, including attorney’s fees and costs. You agree that this Section survives any termination of these Terms.
We may provide a mobile application (“App”) for Space Providers and Renters to manage jobs. Some of the functionality of the Services may only be available on the App and such functionality may vary between Space Providers and Renters. To use the App you must have a mobile device that is compatible with the App. We do not warrant that the App will be compatible with your mobile device.
You may not: a) modify, disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer the App; b) rent, lease, loan, resell, sublicense, distribute or otherwise transfer the App to any third-party; c) make any copies of the App; d) remove, circumvent, disable, damage or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the App, features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content accessible through the App, or features that enforce limitations on use of the App; or e) delete the copyright and other proprietary rights notices on the App.
You acknowledge that we may from time to time issue upgraded versions of the App, and may upgrade automatically to your mobile device the version of the App that you are using. You consent to such automatic upgrading and agree that these Terms apply to all such upgrades. We may elect to provide you with support or modifications for the App (“App Support”), in our sole discretion, and we may change, reduce or terminate such App Support at any time without notice to you. We reserve the right to charge fees for App Support. Any use of third-party software provided in connection with the Services will be governed by such third parties’ licenses and not by these Terms.
App Stores. You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Mobile Apps is dependent on the third party websites from which you download the Mobile Apps, e.g., the App Store from Apple or the Android app market from Google (each an “App Store”). You acknowledge that these Terms are between you and SpaceTogether and not with an App Store. Each App Store may have its own terms and conditions to which you must agree before downloading Mobile Apps from it. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the Mobile Apps is conditioned upon your compliance with, such App Store terms and conditions. To the extent such other terms and conditions from such App Store are less restrictive than, or otherwise conflict with, the terms and conditions of these Terms, the more restrictive or conflicting terms and conditions in these Terms apply.

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND SPACETOGETHER HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
You and SpaceTogether agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of our Terms of Service Agreement, your use of or access to the Services, or any products or services sold or purchased through the Services, will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Legal Disputes Section.
Choice of Law. This Agreement is made under and will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction.
Agreement to Arbitrate
You and SpaceTogether each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and SpaceTogether relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the Terms of Service Agreement, your use of or access to SpaceTogether 's Services, or any products or services sold, offered, or purchased through our Services will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court. Alternatively, you may assert your claims in small claims court in Colorado Springs, Colorado, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of these Terms to Arbitrate.
The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS Arbitration ("JAMS") under its applicable rules and procedures, as modified by these Terms to Arbitrate. The arbitration will be conducted before one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes.
Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator and not a judge or jury. The arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited to rules in court. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order and are subject to very limited review by a court.
You and we must abide by the following rules: (a) ANY CLAIMS BROUGHT BY YOU OR US MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING; (b) THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING, AND MAY NOT AWARD CLASS-WIDE RELIEF, (c) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (d) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (e) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are permitted by applicable law; and (f) each side pays its own attorneys’ fees and expenses unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses, and then in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable law.
With the exception of subparts (a) and (b) in the paragraph above (prohibiting arbitration on a class or collective basis), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, either subpart (a) or (b) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision will be null and void, and neither you nor we will be entitled to arbitration. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the dispute will be exclusively brought in state or federal court in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Changes to Agreement. This Agreement is subject to occasional revision, and if we make any substantial changes, we may notify you by sending you an e-mail to the last e-mail address you provided to us (if any) and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our Platform. Any significant changes to these Terms will be effective 30 days after posting such notice. You are responsible for providing us with your most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address that you have provided us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, our dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described in the notice. Continued use of our Platform or Services following notice of such changes will indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.
