Space Rider

If at any time your membership includes access to space at Alma, you and Alma are also subject to
the rights and obligations set out in this Space Rider.

Alma Services.

  1. While you subscribe to an Alma membership type that includes access to space at Alma,
    Alma will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with the following additional
    services generally made available to Alma Members with your same membership type (now
    included in the “Services”). These Services will usually include:

Technology, including Alma’s scheduling technology to book rooms, schedule appointments and sent visit confirmations and reminders; and

Space, which comprises non-exclusive access to the common areas and reserved rooms at your Home Office (as designated on your order form) and, if included in your membership type, other office space owned or leased by Alma for use by its Members (together, the “Office Space”), regular maintenance of and furnishings for the Office Space, use of the Office Space shared internet connection, printers, copiers and / scanners as available, heat and air-conditioning in the Office Space during business hours, as defined in our FAQ available at https:// (“Regular Business Hours”), electricity for reasonable office use, use of Office Space kitchens and beverages, and acceptance of mail and deliveries on behalf of your business
during Regular Business Hours.

Lockers. Members may have the opportunity to pay for a dedicated locking cabinet located in a communal space, subject to availability. Members are solely responsible for, and take the risk of, the use of assigned locking cabinet. Alma takes no responsibility for items placed in locking cabinets or lockers.

Access to Reserved Rooms and Office Space.

  1. Reserved Rooms. Alma understands that Members’ interactions and sessions with their
    clients in reserved rooms during the reserved time (“Reserved Rooms”) within the Office
    Space (“Client Sessions”) are protected by federal and state confidentiality laws.
    Accordingly, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid accessing or entering
    the Reserved Rooms during a Client Session; however, Alma will be expressly permitted
    to access the Reserved Rooms at any time, with or without notice, in the event that it
    determines such access is necessary to ensure the safety of its Members or Alma’s staff, or
    in any other circumstance reasonably determined to be emergent. When Client Sessions
    are not occurring, we will have the right at any time to enter the Reserved Rooms for any
  2. Office Space. In addition, we are entitled to access the entirety of the Office Space outside Reserved Rooms, with or without notice, in connection with our provision of the Services, for safety or emergency purposes or for any other purposes. We reserve the right to alter the Office Space, and we may temporarily move furniture contained in the Office Space.

Office Space Not Timely Available. If we are unable to make the Office Space
available by your intended membership start date, you may terminate the Membership
Agreement, and Alma will refund any paid but unused fees.



  1. Additional Alma Right of Termination. We may withhold Services or immediately
    terminate this Agreement upon termination, expiration or material loss of our rights in
    the Office Space (or any part thereof).
  2. Removal of Property Upon Termination. Prior to the termination or expiration of this
    Agreement, you will remove all of your and your guests’ or clients’ property from the
    Office Space. After providing you with reasonable notice, we will be entitled to dispose
    of any property remaining in or on the Office Space after the termination or expiration
    of this Agreement and will not have any obligation to store such property, and you waive
    any claims or demands regarding such property or our handling of such property. You
    will be responsible for paying any fees reasonably incurred by us regarding such removal
    or disposal. Following the termination or expiration of this Agreement, we will not
    forward or hold mail or other packages delivered to us.

Insurance. You are responsible for maintaining, at your own expense and at all times during the Term, personal property insurance and commercial general liability insurance each on an occurrence
form basis covering you for property loss and damage, injury to your guests, clients, or service
animals, and prevention of or denial of use of or access to, all or part of the Office Space, each
in form and amount appropriate to your practice, provided that your general liability insurance
must have limits of liability at a minimum of one million dollars ($1,000,000) per occurrence and
two million dollars ($2,000,000) in aggregate. You will ensure that Alma and the landlord of the
Office Space will each be named as additional insureds on any such policies of insurance and
that you waive any rights of subrogation you may have against Alma and the landlord of the Office Space. You will provide proof of insurance upon our request.


  1. Nature of the Agreement; Relationship of the Parties. Your agreement with us is the
    commercial equivalent of an agreement for accommodation in a hotel. The whole of the
    Office Space remains our property and in our possession and control. We are giving you
    the right to share with us the use of the Office Space so that we can provide the Services
    to you. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, you and we agree
    that our relationship is not that of landlord-tenant or lessor-lessee and this Agreement in
    no way will be construed as to grant you any title, easement, lien, possession or related
    rights in our business, the Office Space or anything contained in or on the Office Space.
    This Agreement creates no tenancy interest, leasehold estate, or other real property
    interest. The parties hereto will each be independent contractors in the performance of
    their obligations under this Agreement, and this Agreement will not be deemed to create
    a fiduciary or agency relationship, or partnership or joint venture, for any purpose.
    Neither party will in any way misrepresent our relationship.
  2. Subordination. This Agreement is subject and subordinate to our lease with our landlord
    of the Office Space and to any supplemental documentation and to any other
    agreements to which our lease with such landlord is subject to or subordinate. However,
    the foregoing does not imply any sublease or other similar relationship involving an
    interest in real property.
  3. Brokers. You hereby represent and warrant that you have not used a broker or realtor
    in connection with the membership transaction covered by this Agreement. You
    hereby indemnify and hold us harmless against any claims arising from the breach of
    any warranty or representation of this paragraph.

Extraordinary Events. Alma will not be liable for, and will not be considered in default or breach of this Agreement on account of, any delay or failure to perform as required by this Agreement as a result of any causes or conditions that are beyond Alma’s reasonable control, including without limitation (i)
any delays or changes in construction of, or Alma’s ability to procure any space in, the Office Space,
and (ii) any delays or failure to perform caused by conditions under the control of our landlord at the
Office Space.
