However, an Executive Officer of the applicable Member Company (“Executive Officer”) will have the authority to override the request of an Authorized Signatory or Primary Member, as applicable, provided that we receive such a request within 24 hours following such Authorized Signatory’s or Primary Member’s request. We will be entitled to request reasonable information to conﬁrm that an individual claiming to be an Executive Officer truly is one and to exercise our discretion in determining whether a particular position constitutes an “Executive Officer.” An Executive Officer will also have the authority to remove or replace the individual serving as the Authorized Signatory and/or Primary Member.

c. Invoices; Financial Information. Work2gether will send or otherwise provide invoices and other billing-related documents, information and notices to the Primary Member, unless a different Billing Contact is indicated on the Membership Details Form.

The current overage fee schedule is listed on Work2gether.co/faq. All overage fees are subject to increase from time to time.
e. Late Fees. If payment for the Membership Fee or any other accrued and outstanding fee is not made by the tenth (10th) of the month in which such payment is due, you will be responsible for paying the then-current late charge. The current late fee schedule is listed on Work2gether.co/faq.
f. Form of Payment. We accept payment of all amounts speciﬁed in this Agreement solely by the methods we communicate to you during the membership sign up process or from time to time during the Term. You are required to inform us promptly of any changes to your payment information. Changing your payment method may result in a change in the amount required under this Agreement to be held as the Service Retainer. Only a single payment method may be used at any given time to make payments under this Agreement.
g. Outstanding Fees. Any outstanding fees will be charged in arrears on a monthly basis. When we receive funds from you, we will ﬁrst apply funds to any balances which are in arrears and to the earliest month due ﬁrst. Once past balances are satisﬁed, any remaining portion of the funds will be applied to current fees due. If any payments remain outstanding after we provide notice to you, we may, in our sole discretion, withhold Services or terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 5(d). h. No Refunds. Except as provided in Sections 5(b) and 5(e) of this Agreement, there are no refunds of any fees or other amounts paid by you or your Members in connection with the Services.
- TERM AND TERMINATION a. Term. This Agreement will be effective when signed by both parties (“Effective Date”); provided that we have no obligations to provide you with the Services until the later of (i) the date on which payment of your Service Retainer, Set-Up Fee and first month’s Membership Fee has been received by us or (ii) the Start Date. If the Start Date is a Regular Business Day, you will be entitled to move into the Office Space no earlier than 11:00 a.m. on the Start Date. If the Start Date is not a Regular Business Day, you will be entitled to move into the Office Space no earlier than 11:00 a.m. on the ﬁrst Regular Business Day after the Start Date. Unless otherwise set forth on the Membership Details Form, following the Commitment Term, this Agreement shall continue on a month-to month basis (any term after the Commitment Term, a “Renewal Term”). The Commitment Term and all subsequent Renewal Terms shall constitute the “Term.” If no Commitment Term is indicated on your Membership Details Form, the default Commitment Term shall commence on the Start Date and end one (1) month after the Start Date. This Agreement will continue until terminated in accordance with this Agreement.
b. Cancellation Prior to Start Date by You. You may cancel this Agreement prior to the Start Date upon delivery of notice to us. If you terminate more than one (1) full calendar month prior to your Start Date, you may be entitled to a refund of your Set-Up Fee, less any applicable charges, expenses or deductions; however, you will not be entitled to a refund of your Service Retainer. If you terminate within one (1) full calendar month prior to your Start Date, you will not receive any refund of your Set-Up Fee or Service Retainer.
c. Termination by You; Changes in Office Space. You may terminate this Agreement by delivering to us the Work2gether Exit Form (“Exit Form”) at least one (1) full calendar month prior to the month in which you intend to terminate this Agreement (“Termination Effective Month”) and the termination will be effective on the later of the last Regular Business Day of the Termination Effective Month and the expiration of the Commitment Term. No termination by you shall be effective during the Commitment Term, and termination by you during the Commitment Term is a breach of this Agreement. If you terminate this Agreement prior to the end of the Commitment Term, your Membership Fee Obligations shall become immediately due. In addition to any rights, claims and remedies we choose to pursue in our discretion, your Service Retainer shall be forfeited immediately as a result of your breach. The Exit Form will be provided promptly upon your request during Regular Business Hours. For example, if you would like to terminate this Agreement on the last Regular Business Day of April, and assuming that the Commitment Term will have expired by such date, the last opportunity to deliver the Exit Form to us would be on March 31. The Exit Form needs to be completely filled out and signed by the Authorized Signatory. You will not be entitled to pro ration with respect to the last month's Membership Fee. For instance, if you vacate your Office Space before the last Regular Business Day of April, you will still owe us the full Membership Fee for the full month of April. On the last Regular Business Day of the Termination Effective Month, you must vacate the Office Space no later than 4:00 p.m.
d. Termination or Suspension by Us. We may withhold Services or immediately terminate this Agreement: (i) upon breach of this Agreement by you or any Member; (ii) upon termination, expiration or material loss of our rights in the Premises; (iii) if any outstanding fees are still due after we provide notice to you; (iv) if you or any of your Members fail to comply with the terms and conditions of the Work2gether Member Network Terms of Service, our Wireless Network Terms of Service, or any other policies or instructions provided by us or applicable to you; or (v) at any other time, when we, in our sole discretion, see ﬁt to do so. You will remain liable for past due amounts, and we may exercise our rights to collect due payment, despite termination or expiration of this Agreement. An individual Member will no longer be allowed access to the Services and is no longer authorized to access the Main Premises upon the earlier of (x) the termination or expiration of this Agreement; (y) your removal of such Member from the Member List or (z) our notice to you that such Member materially or repeatedly violated this Agreement.
e. Service Retainer. The Service Retainer will be held as a retainer for the performance of all your obligations under this Agreement, including the Membership Fee Obligations, and is not intended to be a reserve from which fees may be paid. In the event you owe us other fees, you may not rely on deducting them from the Service Retainer, but must pay them separately. We will return the Service Retainer, or any balance after deducting outstanding fees and other costs due to us, including any unsatisfied Membership Fee Obligations, to you by bank transfer or other methods that we communicate to you within thirty (30) days (or earlier if required by applicable law) after the later of (i) the termination or expiration of this Agreement and (ii) the date on which you provide to us all account information necessary for us to make such payment.
