General Terms and Conditions
Who is my agreement with?
If you choose to join THINQTANQ your agreement is with “THINQTANQ Plymouth Limited”. A member (“you”) indicates their acceptance of the following terms and conditions. Both parties understand that English law shall apply to this agreement.
Provision of services and facilities
- Access to THINQTANQ and all associated facilities is provided on a best endeavours basis. Should access or any facilities be unavailable THINQTANQ shall endeavour to provide as much prior notice as possible, but this may not always be possible. Where feasible, and at THINQTANQ’s sole discretion, THINQTANQ shall make alternative arrangements.
- No relationship of landlord and tenant exists between THINQTANQ and you. The whole of the business residence remains in our possession and control. You accept that you have no interest in the property save for the right to share the use of it within the bounds of your selected membership and time period so that we may provide services to you. The agreement is personal to you and not capable of being transferred to anyone else. THINQTANQ reserves the right to transfer the benefit of this agreement along with our obligations under it at any time.
- We will provide the shared work space, meeting rooms, offices and other facilities which you have agreed to pay for in your agreement (subject to your membership level). The THINQTANQ facilities are offered from 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week except public and bank holidays. Use outside of these times can be provided subject to a separate agreement in advance but is not mandatory.
- You may invite and host guests within THINQTANQ provided that they sign in and you accompany them at all times. You are responsible for the conduct and behaviour of any guests, in line with the terms and conditions detailed here. A daily charge (please see current pricing for day rates) will be made to guests making use of a desk or workspace during their visit. This may be settled by the guest or accompanying member but must be done so before the guest leaves. Failure to do so will mean the charge will be added to your invoice to be settled at on your next billing period. You may use shareable passes in lieu of payment if your membership level provides them. We will provide digital H&S notes and information which you must share with any guests you bring on to the property.
- You may not host more than one guest in the shared work area without prior arrangement and agreement by THINQTANQ. If you wish to host multiple guests for the purpose of a specific meeting you must book a meeting room to avoid disturbing other members.
- THINQTANQ may cancel your membership at any time without notice if you breach THINQTANQ’s Terms and Conditions of membership and the rights extended to you to use the business residence of THINQTANQ shall immediately cease. No membership fees will be repaid for outstanding time if you breach our terms and conditions.
Your THINQTANQ membership is personal to you and cannot be shared or transferred.
- Swipe cards or any other access devices or access codes (including wireless codes) provided to you may not be shared or given to others, may not be copied or adapted and must be returned upon cancellation of your membership. Provision of any such equipment is solely at the discretion of THINQTANQ or its employees or agents. A fee of £25+VAT shall be charged for any replacement swipe card or access device, or if you fail to return swipe cards or access devices at the end of your membership.
- THINQTANQ will maintain a clean, vibrant and professional work space. You are obliged to help in maintaining this environment by keeping your work areas clean and tidy. Please respect the facilities and other members.
- Membership fees are due monthly in advance and payable by Direct Debit or another payment method offered from time to time by THINQTANQ.
- You may cancel your membership at any time up to the due date of the next payment. Membership ceases at this point and no more payments will be taken.
- If your membership is terminated by us for any material breach of our terms and conditions you will not be eligible for a refund.
- Any sum outstanding is subject to a 2% per billing cycle penalty charge. THINQTANQ reserves the right to refuse access to facilities until such a time that the arrears have been cleared.
- THINQTANQ accepts no responsibility or liability for loss or damage to property brought into THINQTANQ, except where THINQTANQ’s responsibility or liability is determined by English law.

- THINQTANQ accepts no responsibility or liability for injury or death of members or their guests, except where THINQTANQ’s responsibility or liability is determined by English law.
