These terms and conditions create a contract (the “Agreement”) between you and WeWork Services LLC and its current and future affiliates (“WeWork”, “we”, “us” or “our”). Please read this Agreement carefully; by using the Services Store (defined below) in any way, including by accessing the Services Store, you are agreeing to abide by and be bound by this Agreement. Among other things, this Agreement sets forth that, except for certain types of disputes specified below, you agree that disputes between you and us will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration. For additional information, please see the section entitled “Governing Law; Arbitration and Class Action Waiver” below.
A. INTRODUCTION TO OUR SERVICES STORE
This Agreement governs your use of (including your access to) WeWork’s Services Store (“Services Store”), through which you can obtain information on certain offers, services, subscriptions, products, applications, and other offerings (each a “Service”). As used in this Agreement, “use” of the Services Store includes accessing the Service Store website, purchasing or subscribing to any Service, redeeming any offer, taking advantage of any referral benefits, or interacting with the Service Store in any other way. Our Services Store is available for your use solely in your country of residence (“Location”) and any use of or access to the Services Store is not authorized to the extent your use or access of the Services Store or any Services provided through the Services Store, or any terms of this Agreement, is prohibited by any applicable law, rule or regulation. To use our Services Store, you or your company must be party to an active WeWork membership agreement (“WeWork Membership Agreement”), and you must have compatible hardware, software (latest version may be required), and Internet access.
B. ACCESSING SERVICES THROUGH THE SERVICES STORE (BILLING, PAYMENTS, TAXES, AND REFUNDS)
WeWork is providing a benefit to you by providing information that may be used in a transaction between you and certain third party providers (“Service Providers”). WeWork will not be purchasing any products on behalf of you or any Service Provider, and by using the Services Store and accessing any third party Service, you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for any third party Services or your experiences with any Service Providers.
You can acquire Services on our Services Store for free or for a charge, as set forth in the Services Store in connection with the applicable Services (each acquisition, a “Transaction”). By completing a Transaction, you agree to pay the applicable Service Provider any and all fees due for the applicable Service. Transactions will be processed by the applicable Service Provider. For the sake of clarity, payments will not be handled through your WeWork invoice.
In the event your WeWork Membership Agreement expires or terminates, you will no longer be eligible to receive any discounts related to Services obtained through the Services Store and may need to contact the applicable Service Provider to ensure continuity of use.
YOUR USE OF THIRD PARTY SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND IS SUBJECT TO ANY ADDITIONAL TERMS, CONDITIONS, AND POLICIES APPLICABLE TO SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICES (SUCH AS TERMS OF SERVICE OR PRIVACY POLICIES OF THE SERVICE PROVIDERS OF SUCH SERVICES) (“SERVICE PROVIDER TERMS”).
If you have any disputes or issues regarding a Service purchased from a Service Provider, including but not limited to if a Service is disabled, nonfunctioning, modified or otherwise changed in a way that interferes with your use of the Service, you must contact the Service Provider directly. A Service Provider may advertise or provide goods, services or experiences that require Service Provider to have an up-to-date regulatory authorization, license, or certification. WeWork does not verify, validate, or collect evidence of any regulatory authorization, license or certification from any Service Provider. You should make whatever investigation you deem necessary or appropriate before purchasing any offering from a Service Provider to determine whether, for instance: (i) Service Provider is qualified to provide the good or perform the service; or (ii) the product is of the care and quality required. Service Provider is solely responsible for the care and quality of the goods and services being provided or the care and quality of the products offered. Pricing relating to certain offerings, products, and other available programs may change at any time and without notice.
WEWORK NETWORK ACCOUNT
Using the Services Store and accessing your Services requires an active WeWork Network Account. A WeWork Network Account is the account you use across WeWork’s Membership Network. Your WeWork Network Account is valuable, and you are responsible for maintaining its confidentiality and security. You are responsible for all actions in connection with your account.

GOVERNING LAW; ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
This Agreement, the Services Store’s terms and any matters directly and exclusively related to the Services Store shall be governed by and construed under the applicable laws described below. Any matters otherwise related to your membership, shall be governed by the governing law set forth in the Membership Agreement or terms of service entered into by you or the company with which you are affiliated.
• If you are based in the U.S., the law of the State of New York, U.S.A. and the United States without regard to conflicts of laws provisions thereof and without regard to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods or New York’s or any other implementation of the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act.
• If you are based outside of the U.S., the law of England and Wales, without regard to conflicts of laws provisions thereof.
Except that either party may seek equitable or similar relief from any court of competent jurisdiction, any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in relation to this Agreement, or at law, or the breach, termination or invalidity of this Agreement, which cannot be settled amicably by agreement of the parties to this Agreement shall be finally settled:
• If you are based in the U.S., by binding, individual arbitration in accordance with the arbitration rules of JAMS then in force, by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with said rules. The place of arbitration shall be New York, New York, U.S.A.
• If you are based outside of the U.S., by binding, individual arbitration in accordance with the International Chamber of Commerce commercial arbitration rules then in force, by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with said rules. The place of arbitration shall be London, England. Any claim which is not subject to arbitration pursuant to this paragraph shall be adjudicated exclusively in the English courts.
You and we hereby expressly waive trial by jury. Discovery and rights to appeal in arbitration are generally more limited than in a lawsuit, and other rights that you and we would have in court may not be available in arbitration.
As an alternative, you may bring your claim in your local “small claims” court, if permitted by that small claims court's rules and if within such court’s jurisdiction, unless such action is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court. You may bring claims only on your own behalf.
Any proceedings made hereunder shall be confidential and in English. The award rendered shall be final and binding on both parties. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. In any action, suit or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover, in addition to any other relief awarded, the prevailing party’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and other fees, costs and expenses of every kind in connection with the action, suit or proceeding, any appeal or petition for review, the collection of any award or the enforcement of any order, as determined by the arbitrator(s) or court, as applicable. This Agreement shall be interpreted and construed in the English language, which is the language of the official text of this Agreement.
Any proceeding to resolve or litigate any dispute in any forum will be conducted solely on an individual basis. Neither you nor we will seek to have any dispute heard as a class action or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No proceeding will be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to all affected proceedings. You and we also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or any consolidated claims involving another person's account, if we are a party to the proceeding. You are giving up your right to participate as a class representative or class member on any class claim you may have against us including any right to class arbitration or any consolidation of individual arbitrations.
