Last updated: February 2021
Welcome to Swurf!
This page tells you the terms on which you may use our website, www.swurf.com, or our mobile application, Swurf (together, throughout these terms, known as the “site” or “Swurf”),
whether as registered user or guest. Please read carefully before use.By using the site, you accept the terms and agree to obey them. If you don't accept them, please don't use the site.
Swurf is a platform that connects venues to remote workers, to provide a safe, welcomingplace for them to work.
2. Who We Are
Swurf is operated by Swurf Ltd, a limited company registered in Scotland under company
number SC682869. Our registered office is at 3f1, 28 Queen Charlotte Street, Leith, Edinburgh EH6 6AT.
3. Registering for Swurf as a User
When you register for Swurf as a remote worker, you are known as a “user” in these terms and conditions. When you sign up to the site, we will ask you for your name, email address, location and company name. We will offer the option to create a profile on our site, which will allow you to upload more information about yourself (including a photo), to follow and connect with others, and to join Swurf groups. We may not make this feature available until a later date. Swurf also allows you to search for venues which suit your needs, using filters and map
functionality. We may also offer you the ability to leave reviews for venues. While we do our best to ensure that your experience at a venue is a good one, and that the information contained on the site is accurate, we are not responsible for these things. This means that, if something is not as described on the site, or your experience is not what you
hoped it would be, we will not be responsible or liable for this. However, we would encourage you to provide feedback on your experience so we can continuously improve the quality of the venues listed on Swurf.
4. Registering for Swurf as a Host
When you register for Swurf as a host, this means that you provide a venue for users to access. When signing up as a host, you will access this via the host portal, and provide information on your venue (including location), your company details and VAT registration number.
We will also require the following information from you regarding your key staff members:
- Contact names
- Email addresses
- Telephone numbers
- Position in the organisation
We will 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 host, we will require you to pay a monthly subscription based on the pricing advertised on our site. We will take payment for such subscription via PayPal, or other payments options as displayed on our site. We may make a booking tool available for users to reserve seats within your venues, or provide an ‘enquire now’ button for users to contact Swurf. In the latter case, Swurf can deal directly with bookings between the user and your venue. The service we provide via Swurf 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.
