Welcome to Reef!
This page tells you the terms on which you may use our website Platform, Reef (throughout these terms, known as the “Platform”), as a registered venue. Please read carefully before use.
By applying to become a registered venue, you accept the terms and agree to obey them. If you don't accept them, please don't use the Platform.
We may update these terms from time to time, so please check back regularly as any updates will apply to your use of the Platform.
Reef is a Platform which offers businesses and team members to work agilely between venues globally, and to socialise again inside the future third workspace, at venues such as yours.
Reef is operated by Reef App Limited, a limited company registered in England and Wales under company number 12196974. Our registered office is at 1 Sopwith Crescent, Hurricane Way, Wickford, Essex, England SS11 8YU.
When you register for Reef as a venue host, this means that you provide a venue for users to access. When signing up as a host, we will send you an email link to onboarding, provide you with a username and password, and from there you can add information on your venue(s), including location and other details.
As part of onboarding, we will undertake due diligence on your venue, including looking at your online reviews and postings on social media. It is within our sole discretion as to whether you are accepted as a venue on Reef.
We will also require the following information from you regarding your key staff members:
We may also ask you to confirm your Covid-safe protocols and accreditations, and also the insurance you have in place. We may ask you to make changes to your venue or make certain confirmations to ensure that we can describe your venue as ‘Covid safe’.
Where you sign up as a venue, this is entirely free of charge.
We may make a booking tool available for users to reserve seats within your venues.
The service we provide via Reef allows you to be connected to remote workers. However, we are not responsible for their behaviour or anything that happens at your venue.
You are responsible for ensuring that all information regarding your venue, published on our site, is accurate and not misleading. This includes ensuring that the profile for your venue is kept accurate and up to date.
You are able to update your details on the Platform as and when required, and view upcoming bookings and statistics regarding the use of your venue through Reef.
We also may integrate booking systems into the Platform, where you are able to manage bookings directly through your own booking system. Where we do this, we will not be responsible for the functionality of the third party booking system, and do not warrant or guarantee that your booking system will properly integrate with the Platform.
You have permission for temporary use of the Platform, but we can withdraw or change our service at any time without telling you and without being legally responsible to you.

No material on the Platform is intended to contain advice, and you shouldn't rely on it. We exclude all legal responsibility and costs for reliance placed on the Platform by anyone.
Where we roll out updates for the Platform, these will be to improve functionality and performance of the Platform, address security issues or reflect changes to the operating system. If you do not update the Platform when requested, it may no longer run as expected.

We do not currently operate a star rating system or a review system, but may do so in future.
