General terms and conditions for Orbit Subscriptions.
The access rights granted the Customer as well as the services provided by Orbit are outlined in the Powered by Orbit Module descriptions available at www.getorbit.com. As the content of the Powered by Orbit Modules may be adjusted by Orbit on reasonable notice, the description at the said web site will be binding for the Parties relationship during the subscription period.
The Facilities are defined as available office space at premises operated by Orbit (Satellites) on conditions defined in the Customer’s Powered by Orbit Module and the Subscriptions purchased by the Customer on behalf of Customer’s customers and/or employees (the “Facilities”).
The use of the Facilities is governed by Clause 2 and 3 below. “Services” are those available in the Orbit systems, apps and other interfaces (the “Orbit Software”) and which may be accessed and/or ordered through the Orbit Software. The use of such Services is governed by Clause 4 below.
The Customer will ensure that any and all of the Customer’s employees, customers and/or other individuals that the Customer grants access to Orbit’s Facilities and/or services shall have a valid Orbit Subscription before commencing use of the Facilities. This requirement does not cover guests of the Customer’s employees who are given access as such.
The Customer shall ensure that the holders of the Orbit Subscriptions have read and accepted these General Terms and infractions of these General Terms by the subscription holders shall be considered as an infraction by the Customer.
2.1.1 On At the date agreed between the Parties in Clause 1, the Customer having paid the advance defined in Clause 5.1.4 and the subscriptions listed in Clause 1 being fully paid, Orbit shall provide the Tenant with the identity cards linked to each subscription (the “Identity Cards”).
2.1.2 These Identity Cards will provide the person identified on the card with access rights to the Facilities and the services defined in the subscription. Loss of an Identity Card must immediately be reported to Orbit personnel at the closest facility or at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
The Identity Card is personal and may not be transferred to another person, regardless of whether this is an employee of the Customer, without prior written permission from Orbit.
2.1.3 Orbit will from time to time conduct access controls in the Facilities. Misuse of the Identity Cards will be grounds for cancellation for cause of the individual’s subscription and repeated misuse by the Customer’s employees/customers will be grounds for termination of this Agreement for cause.
The Orbit concept is based on extensive self-service from the Customers during ordinary tenancy and/or execution of daily tasks, by means of the Orbit Software. Any Orbit staff at the premises will primarily be available for “pay for use” services beyond normal use and the Customer should be aware that use of Orbit staff will be billed separately.
3.1.1 The facility is available on a 24-7 basis, with scheduled maintenance and upgrade periods. There is no reserved seating and all joint Facilities are available to all users on an equal basis.
3.1.2 Where the building includes a cafeteria, the Customer’s personnel may purchase food by use of their Identity Cards. Food shall be consumed on the cafeteria premises. If no cafeteria exists, food shall be consumed in those parts of the public spaces reserved for eating. Eating is not allowed at the co-working spaces.
3.1.3 The Customer is allowed to receive visitors and/or customers at the Facilities but shall not use co-working spaces for meetings or entertaining visitors. The Tenant must ensure that their employees, customers with Identity Cards and other visitors (“Customer’s Personnel”) use the dedicated meeting spaces for such use. Use of the meeting spaces for whole-day conferences or similar activities is not included in the Customer’s access rights and such use, and its commercial terms, must be agreed with Orbit in advance.
3.1.4 The Customer’s Personnel should ensure that the overall working environment is productive and forms a basis for development and growth for all users. Noise levels must be contained in order not to disturb other users.
3.1.5 The joint areas, including eating and lounge facilities, are designed as temporary areas for rest and networking, not continuous daily work. If Orbit staff consider that a member’s use of the space is impeding other members from having fair use of the space, we might ask that they adjust their behaviour or moderate their use.
3.1.6 The Customer shall address commercial messages, advertising and similar forms of communication to other Customers and/or subscribing members exclusively through those means of communication that Orbit has established for such use, such as network events, electronic notice boards, etc. if and where these are established. No mass advertising to other Customers and/or subscribing members is allowed.

The Tenant’s employees and guests shall familiarise themselves with the HSE information regarding the premises in force at any given time.
3.1.10 The Customer’s personnel, employees, customers, guests and/or executives shall not engage in any form of harassing, discriminatory and/or offensive behaviour, verbal or non-verbal, towards Orbit staff, other customers, subscribing members or their guests and/or customers. Breach of this provision may result in termination of the Agreement for cause.

3.1.12 The Customer shall leave the office space in a tidy state at the end of each working day, as well as upon the expiry of the Agreement Term. If the Facilities does not include use of a designated office or a designated office space, the Customer shall also remove all of his or her belongings at the end of each working day.

4.1.1 If the Customer’s Personnel places an order with a third party provider by means of the Orbit Software, the contract for payment and delivery of the service is concluded directly between the person among the Customer’s Personnel placing the order by means of his/her Identity Card and the Third Party Supplier in question.
4.1.2 The Third Party Supplier will be responsible for the fulfilment of the order and the person holding the Identity Card connected to the order will be responsible for the payment. Under no circumstance will Orbit be responsible for deficiencies in deliveries from the Third Party Supplier, nor will Orbit be able to stop payment or otherwise interfere with the payment processing on any request from the Customer’s or the Customer’s Personnel.
4.2 Orbit will, at their sole discretion, add or remove services and Third Party Suppliers from the Orbit Software. If a Third Party Supplier is removed before the Tenant’s order is completed, this removal from the Orbit Software should not affect any contract concluded before the removal, although Orbit cannot warrant the behaviour of any Third Party Supplier.
4.3 Orbit will ensure smooth delivery of any services connected with the Facilities, including access to the Facility in question for Third Party Personnel. However Orbit will not be responsible for any delays or other deficiencies in delivery that stems from the Third Party Supplier not being able to find the Facility, access the Facility in the required manner or otherwise due to issues under the Third Party Supplier’s control.
