Use headphones. Book a room for long conversations. Clean up after yourself. Consider the rest of the world too. Conserve. Recycle. Turn off the lights when leaving. Print two-sided. Just be nice;
- Pitch in. We operate with a skeleton staff to keep costs – and your fees – down. Being a Member of TAG is like living with roommates. We all contribute toward the cost of keeping a roof over our heads and the utilities on. We also help keep the place going. Make coffee. Empty the dishwasher. Take out the trash. Replace empty toilet paper rolls. See a need? Pitch in;
- Sharing is at the heart of coworking. It lets us use resources like equipment, space, utilities, and supplies more efficiently. Plus, it's nice (see #a). Instead of bringing in a box of tea, a jar of peanut butter or a box of envelopes just for yourself, share. Sharing applies to ideas and activities too. Look for opportunities to include others. In other words, be a good sharer;
- Don’t be a bully. Avoid doing bad, annoying or otherwise not-OK things like:
- Pyramid schemes, chain letters, junk email, spamming;
- Defaming, abusing, harassing, or threatening others;
- Pitching or promoting your business (or your kid's fundraiser) to others trying to work;
- Posting or distributing anything inappropriate, profane, defamatory, or indecent;
- Mind your own business. We coworkers work in close proximity. Keeping what should be private, private is up to you. Take adequate precautions and secure your phone, computer, files, papers, etc. that may contain information you don’t want to share. On the flip side, don’t snoop in other’s materials, read through papers left on printers, or otherwise dig through other people’s stuff;
- Be safe. Don’t do foolish or dangerous things like play with matches, run with scissors, chemistry experiments with cleaning solutions. Wash your hands. Throw away food that has gone bad. Clean up spills. Let us know if something needs repair. Keep our network safe, too. Don’t upload or use files with viruses, malware, etc. that could damage the network, computers, or equipment;
- Own up to messing up. If any action or inaction on your part or that of your guest(s) cause harm or damage to anyone or anything, own up to it and make it right (fix it and/or correlated costs);
- Play responsibly. TAG is not in the business of serving food or drink. If such food or beverages exist and you partake, you do so at your discretion and risk. Be responsible. Oh, and, it's not nice to over-consume – anything – so be nice too;
- Hold each other accountable. These House Rules are shared with every Member, Day Pass user, and meeting room renter. We should all know what they are. If someone forgets, remind him/her (with respect, like you would want). Oh, and, it's your responsibility make sure your guests follow these rules and generally behave themselves;
- No Smoking. This might qualify under keeping TAG safe, but it gets its mention, so there's no confusion. No smoking is allowed in our workspace, including our back area, parking lot and front area;
- No sleep-overs. Yes, we really do have to say it. Tempting as it might be, with amenities such as a sofa, refrigerator, you cannot make 8214 E 111th Pl S your home – not even for one night. TAG is for business use only.;
- Consume alcohol, food, or anything else responsibly and at your own risk. TAG has no liability for illness, accidents, or any bad thing that results from your consumption of a substance of any kind at TAG. TAG does not hold a license for the consumption of alcohol;
- Stay tuned. Updates to these House Rules will be posted on the TAG Member Portal website and in the workspace. It’s your responsibility to keep up with any changes and adhere to them. If there’s anything you don’t understand, just ask. We’re here to help.
TAG is not covered for the risks and liabilities associated with children. Therefore their presence is discouraged, and they only enter the premises at their own risk and that of their carers/parents.
10. No Pets or Bikes
TAG is not covered for the risks and liabilities associated with animals. Therefore their presence is not allowed unless it is a service pet. TAG does not have a place to keep your bike, so we discourage the Member to bring and leave unattended.
