YOWO Member T&C's

1 Overview

"YOWO" is a subscription service offered by Lion NZ Limited ("we", "us", "our") in conjunction with our participating venue partners (each a "YOWO Venue Partner") to provide users with access to flexible working spaces and membership benefits.

In order to enjoy YOWO, you must register for and maintain a YOWO Member Account ("YOWO Account") and abide by these YOWO Customer T&C's ("these T&C's"). You acknowledge that the provision of flexible working spaces and membership benefits is subject to availability and any further limitations that are communicated to you (by us or the YOWO Venue Partner as the case may be) from time to time. We reserve the right to alter and amend membership benefits as we see fit.  

These T&C's describe your rights and obligations in connection with YOWO.
