COMMUNITY STANDARDS AND POLICIES. Member shall be required to abide by INVENTOPIA’s policies and procedures, as promulgated from time to time, relating to the use of its building and facilities. Failure to do so may result in termination of this Agreement as provided in Section 7A below.

PRIORITY OF USE. INVENTOPIA will make a reasonable effort to accommodate Member’s scheduling needs in the use of its facilities. However, in the event of a conflict arising between Members of INVENTOPIA in the use of its facilities, priority of use will be given to the Member whose monthly spend at INVENTOPIA is greater.

  1. For Cause. This Agreement may be terminated by INVENTOPIA immediately in the event there is a breach of this Agreement by Member, a failure by Member to follow INVENTOPIA’s policies and procedures relating to the use of its building and facilities, or any conduct by Member that, in the sole discretion of INVENTOPIA, is deleterious or damaging to INVENTOPIA or any of its tenants.
  2. Without Cause. Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time upon giving the other party notice of its intent to terminate no less than thirty (30) days in advance of the date of termination.

Member shall also be responsible for any damage it, its employees, agents, representatives, or invitees may cause to the premises or to any personal or other property belonging to INVENTOPIA or its tenants that may be on such premises.

INSURANCE.  Any member who brings on-site equipment, resources, or samples with a combined replacement value of over one thousand dollars ($1,000) is required to obtain insurance coverage against the full replacement cost of said materials, naming INVENTOPIA as an additional insured party, and is required to provide INVENTOPA with proof of such insurance.  Failure to maintain such coverage may qualify a tenant for Termination under Section 7A of this agreement.

RELEASE. Member hereby releases INVENTOPIA, its agents, employees, and officers from any liability or responsibility to Member or any other person, claiming through it by way of subrogation or otherwise, for any loss or damage to the Co-Working property or the property of any of its agents, employees, representatives, or invitees which is brought onto the premises, regardless of how such loss or damage may occur, even if such damage or loss may have been caused by flood or other casualty or by the negligence of INVENTOPIA, its agents, employees, or officials. It is expressly agreed and understood that Member, its agents, employees, representatives, or invitees, in bringing property in and onto the premises do so at their own risk. It is further agreed and understood that INVENTOPIA, its agents, employees, and officials will not be liable to Members for any business losses or damages to the property of Member, its employees, representatives, agents, or invitees, occasioned by the acts or omissions of other businesses or persons which may occupy the premises.
