Any sensitive or personally identifiable data that you transmit to us, including your personal and payment

Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is an industry-grade secure connection and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.

Refund Policy

(1) For Memberships:

All of our memberships are billed on a month-to-month basis and require a first and last month’s deposit at time of registration.  A notice of cancellation is required in writing by email to hello@workbar.com 30 days in advance (for example, if canceling June 1st, written notice must be sent before May 1st). We apply your last month deposit to your final month.

Day passes are billed at the time of entry into the Workbar workspace and are non-refundable under any circumstances.

(2) For Meeting & Conference Room Reservations:

We use LiquidSpace (www.liquidspace.com) to book reservations of our conference and meeting rooms for non-members and adhere to their refund policy. Non-members of Workbar are billed by LiquidSpace directly and are able to cancel their reservation for a full refund at least 24 hours before the reservation start time or within one hour of booking the reservation if before the reservation time starts. No refund is available if the reservation is cancelled after the start time.

For Workbar members, meeting room reservations are billed internally.  Members are billed for their meeting room usage based on their membership levels.

(3) For Event Hosts:

If you are using a Workbar workspace as the venue for your event, you may cancel your event for a full refund at least 72 hours in advance of your event date. The cancellation must be submitted in writing by email to events@workbar.com or to your event coordinator.

If your cancellation is received within the 72 hours prior to your event date, then you will be refunded 50% of your event fees.

No refunds or discounts are available once the event has begun.

(4) For Event Tickets:

If you have purchased a ticket for a Workbar sponsored event, workshop or other program, you may cancel your participation at least 24 hours before the start of the event for a full refund of the ticket price. The cancellation must be submitted in writing by email to events@workbar.com.

If you cancel after 24 hours before the start of the event, you will receive a Workbar “credit” in the amount of the full price of the ticket. This credit can be used for future programming, a Workbar membership, meeting room reservations or any other Workbar service.

Tickets are transferable to another party if the purchaser of the ticket is unable to attend the event.

If you have purchased a ticket for an event that is held at Workbar but is hosted by a separate party or organization, then you must contact that party directly regarding their refund policy. Workbar is in no way responsible for the payment or refund terms for outside organizations holding events within our workspace.
