Terms & Conditions
Last updated September 17, 2020.
The Delta’s first season, ending December 31st, 2020, is limited to Founding Members. This gives us an opportunity to open the space safely, provide a service to our community of members, and create a prototype for modeling how we might change in future seasons to allow access and opportunity for more people to take advantage of our resources. This is the goal.
In the meantime, The Delta was imagined as a studio, so our Founding Members will be in the unique position to use it as their studio and we will spend these next few months as a testing ground, as so much in life right now is changing day by day. We will, therefore, be creating this space and community together to best serve your needs and be the solution to your challenges, or at least a refuge from them. Come on in!
Founding Members will sign a Membership Agreement that will commit them to membership for this first season. The next season will start on January 1st, 2021. Founding Members must indicate their interest in cancelling their membership one month before the new season, so by December 1st, if they do not wish to remain members beyond the current season. The second season, Winter 2021, will be from January 1st through March 31st, 2021.
Founding Members will be charged for their first season, ending December 31st, 2020. If you don’t want to continue as a member, you must let us know in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1st, otherwise you will be charged the first month of the following season (January, 2021).
The Delta reserves the right to terminate a membership at our sole discretion.
We look forward to providing more membership options with flexibility for space usage, price, and related access; but, due to COVID-19 and the health and safety measures associated with the pandemic, we take our responsibility to keep our space, our members, our families, and our community safe incredibly seriously. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding.
Terms and Conditions (“Terms”)
Please read these Terms and Conditions (“Terms, “Terms and Conditions,” or “T&C”) carefully before using the Delta’s website (“www.thedelta.co” or “the website”) operated by The Delta Collective LLC (“The Delta,” “we,” “us”).
Welcome to the Delta. We are very glad that you are here. We aim to make your life better, one day at a time, by providing a space for betterment, quietude, and celebration.
Your access to and use of The Delta is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use our Services.
The Delta is a place that cares about people and teaches you how to care for yourself. We must find lasting solutions that address our whole selves in a deep, meaningful, efficient, trusting, and holistic way. We are driven to improve maternal health and wellness to help you to take care of yourself, first and foremost, and by drawing resources and attention on the maternal health crisis in the United States and around the world.
Our core values are flexibility, wellness, and truth.
The Delta invites you to connect with yourself and with others. From our intimate gathering space to our inspirational events, we create opportunities for betterment, quietude, and celebration.
We believe that it is okay. To slow down. To not know something. To reflect and redefine. To put yourself first. To write your own story.
We are trying to unlearn a set of skills that may have once served us well, but that now infringe on our health and happiness. This includes, but is not limited to, a quest for perfection. We no longer believe that perfection is attainable and we know that it often comes at our own expense.
We work to lift one another up and to leave our judgement at the door. We will assume the best intentions of others and come with a generosity of spirit. We believe that everyone is doing their best and that what we see is not the whole story. We will do what we can to better understand the experience of others, to empathize.
We are inspired by the following principles.
- Mothers are magic. We create, sustain, and nurture life; but since we only have one life to live, we must make it count. We show up, as we are, and we get to work. We are committed to sharing our strengths and believe that we are strongest together.
- Revolution starts with self. We know that to change the world, we must first change ourselves. We commit to shifting our habits and mindsets, we sow the seeds for social transformation. We know nothing more revolutionary than self-care.
- Practice courage. We are willing to stand in discomfort to face our fears. We allow ourselves to feel and be fully present. We combine passion and perseverance to overcome life’s obstacles. We exercise our values through action and show up when it matters.
- Speak up, out and often. We speak clearly, no caveats, and stand our ground. We know who we are, comfortable in our skin. We tell our stories to build community and preserve our shared experiences. We believe there is strength in humility and are not afraid to ask for help.
Additionally, and importantly, we are anti-racist. Please do your research and be willing to do the daily work that anti-racism requires. Here is one good resource. There are many - find them. Do the work.
The Delta may refuse or remove access to Services from anyone we determine, in our sole discretion and without liability or refund:
- Fails to, or threatens or is otherwise likely to fail to, comply with any provision of these Terms, our Community Norms, and all laws, regulations, and rules that apply to your use of or access to the Services;
- Is engaging in any offensive, harassing, discriminatory, intimidating, inappropriate, microaggressive, harmful, nuisance, hindering, disruptive, or illegal conduct; or
- Poses a health and safety risk to any employees, vendors, other members, or guests of The Delta.
A Member who is denied access to the Services or removed from using or accessing the Services for these or any other reasons shall not be entitled to any refund of prepaid fees, regardless of the circumstances surrounding denial or removal.
COVID-19 Protocols & Waiver for Accessing Physical Locations
We take everyone’s health and safety very seriously. We designed the space with your overall health and wellness in mind; but, with the introduction of COVID-19 into our lives during the construction process, we saw this as an opportunity and mandate to implement even more stringent and additional safety precautions into the space’s design as well as our daily operations. If you have questions, please visit our FAQ and/or email info@thedeltaco.
Those measures include:
- The Delta’s space is a new construction, so we are compliant with all building and mechanical safety guidelines as required by New York City’s Department of Buildings.
- We have ensured that the ventilation system in our facility operates properly. As this is a brand new HVAC system, we are in compliance with the CDC’s Standard Practice for the Inspection and Maintenance of Commercial Building HVAC Systems.
- We have increased the circulation of outdoor air as much as possible by ordering and soon installing a screen door on the back egress so that the door can be left open, without jeopardizing the health or safety of our occupants.
- We will use fans to circulate air.
- We will install portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) fan/filtration systems to help enhance air cleaning.
- We have ensured that the exhaust fans in the restroom facility is functional and operating at full capacity.
- We have ordered and will immediately install an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) light as a supplemental technique to inactivate potential airborne virus in the upper-room air of common occupied spaces, in accordance with industry guidelines.
- The sinks, water systems and features including sink faucets, and ice machine, are all new and have passed plumbing inspection to ensure that there is no hazard to members’ health and safety.
We will continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, State and City of New York, and local government and public health authorities (collectively, “Industry Guidelines”), and will stay up to date on the measures that similar reputable businesses are taking. To keep everyone as safe as possible, please be advised of the measures we’ve taken, which we may update from time to time as is advisable under the circumstances or legally required.
Additionally, following CDC guidelines, we have implemented the following hazard controls to reduce transmission among our community, including
- We are requiring that all Founding Members provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test before she/he begins the use of the space. We will use this screening tool to collect baseline data about the COVID-19 status of our community and to allow for safe opening and use of the space.
- We will allow no more than five-six Founding Members in the space at a time to ensure that everyone can maintain social distancing of six feet between people, where possible.
- We will provide hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes and masks on site for easy access and use, as needed.
- We will clean the space at the beginning and end of the day, as well as throughout the day, to ensure all surfaces are clean and disinfected.
- We will ask members to use the front door on Court Street for entrance, and the back door on Warren Street for exit to maintain social distancing of six feet on entrance and exit.
- We will ask all members and users of the space to follow Community Expectations regarding potential symptoms of COVID-19 or close contact with someone who has symptoms or tested positive of COVID-19.
- We will require everybody who enters the space to wear a mask, not to enter the building if sick, and to maintain six feet apart. We will post a sign as a reminder.
- We will clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces, following the guidance for cleaning and disinfecting from the CDC to develop, follow, and maintain a plan to perform regular cleanings to reduce the risk of people’s exposure to the virus. We will do a deep clean of the space once a week and multiple daily cleanings of frequently touched surfaces, such as door handles, counters, light switches, controls, faucets, appliance pulls, workstations, doorknobs, printer, furniture and bathroom.
- We have four seats that can be brought outside and have planters that create privacy and a beautiful and inviting place to sit. Please feel free to bring those chairs outside to sit and use this outdoor seating area and social distance, especially for any small-group activity such as lunch, break, meetings, and phone calls.
We may ask for another COVID-19 test within the span of the first season at our discretion. We may also ask for all Founding Members to sign in daily in case there is a positive case in our neighborhood and community and we need to contact trace who was in the space on what given date.
We provide a responsible, safe and healthy workplace. We chose our location primarily for its convenience and abundance of natural light. In the context of COVID-19, however, this site is also advantageous because it is on street level, so there is no need to enter an elevator for access. Additionally, we have an ADA compliant bathroom and removable ramp for easy access, as needed.
Additionally, during the demolition phase, we checked for asbestos. When a trace of asbestos was detected in one area, we abated that area and did a more thorough check of the entire space. It mattered to us that we could confidently say that the space is asbestos free, which it is. If you are interested in finding out more information about that review please reach out to email@example.com. Again, we prioritize your health and safety.
Important Community Expectations
We ask that all Founding Members get a COVID-19 test before starting regular use of the space. It is important to note, though, that these tests represent the Covid-19 status of our community at a fixed moment in time. They are only as good as you and your household’s careful, continued observance of social distancing, mask recommendations, hand hygiene, and other protective safety measures. Before and after you receive the test results, we ask that you observe all recommended safety measures as part of your commitment to the Delta community and to a smooth and safe opening of the space.
The test should be administered 4-7 days prior to your expected start date at The Delta. You are responsible for providing a copy of the results. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
If you are a Founding Member, you will need to show a negative COVID-19 test prior to using the space as your workspace. Masks must be worn in the space at all times, unless eating or drinking. Please maintain proper social distancing while entering, using, and exiting the space. You may want to bring an extra layer of clothing, as we plan to keep the door open and run an air purifier during your visit.
Please ensure your mask continues to cover your nose and mouth at all times, wash or sanitize your hands thoroughly upon arrival, and do your best to comply with social distancing guidelines throughout your visit. There is hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes and masks available if you need.
When you enter the space, please “check-in” and confirm that you and/or your immediate family members have not:
- Had a fever over 100F in the past 24 hours
- Recently had or currently have any respiratory or flu symptoms, sore throat, or shortness of breath
- Been in contact with anyone in the past 14 days who has had the above symptoms or been diagnosed with COVID-19
Depending on your responses to the inquiries above, we may ask you to leave the space for the health and safety of our other members. The Delta has the right to refuse or cease providing the Services at any time if we feel as though the safety or well-being of our business, people, or the Services is compromised, without a refund or other liability to you.
COVID Liability Waiver
The Delta and its owner, sponsors, donors, members, affiliates, contractors, and agents are taking reasonable precautions to protect you and our other members and community, including following Industry Guidelines with respect to health and safety precautions, including consistent handwashing, social distancing and sanitization practices, to do what we can to reduce the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus. We will continue to monitor local and state government restrictions and any updates to Industry Guidelines and will let you know if the restrictions or guidelines then in place impact your visit or the availability of the Services.
You understand and agree that, if you choose to visit our physical location during this time, you are doing so during the worldwide, national, and state-wide emergency of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, associated government shelter-in-place orders, local public health agency restrictions, and Industry Guidelines (collectively, “Pandemic”), each of which constitutes a force majeure event that may make it illegal, impossible, inadvisable, unsafe, or commercially impractical for us to provide the Services, and that we are not liable or responsible, nor are you entitled to a refund, for any failure or delay in providing use of or access to our physical locations due to reasons outside our reasonable control, including without limitation the Pandemic and other force majeure events defined below.
Additionally, you understand that the COVID-19 coronavirus is currently understood to be highly contagious and its spread is based on a combination of distance and time, and you agree that, although we will take the reasonable precautions specified above to reduce the chances of exposure, it is not possible to guarantee any of our safety or wellness at this time. When our space is able to be open and you use or access our physical location, you knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks associated with choosing to use or access the Services during the Pandemic. You agree to hold The Delta and its owner, sponsors, donors, members, vendors, affiliates, and agents harmless from all actions, suits, claims, expenses and damages arising from your use of and access to our Services during the Pandemic, except to the extent caused by our gross negligence or willful misconduct.
If you choose not to comply with our COVID-19 protocols before, during, or after your visit, we may refuse to provide or revoke access to the Services without providing a refund.
This Agreement remains in force and effect while your membership is active, while you use the Services, and thereafter as permitted by law. The Delta reserves the right to terminate or modify your membership, including this Agreement. When feasible, and except in circumstance of Force Majeure as further defined within this Agreement below, the Delta will give members 30-day notice if the membership model changes, pricing changes, access/hours change, or if there is a change to the individual’s membership, including the possibility that the work-style is not a fit for a coworking-type environment. Note that this 30-day notice is not granted in the case of improper behavior, or due to the health and safety of the other members as further described above.
By using the Services, you agree to the following:
You take our health and safety precautions seriously.
You root for and are supportive of other members. You abide by the Community Norms and support The Delta’s values and principles.
Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others. Take care of yourself. Take care of others.
We believe that Black Lives Matter. We consistently work to dismantle systemic racism and work daily to run an anti-racist space and community.
We will not tolerate discrimination. We reserve the right to remove posts and/or membership that we deem disruptive.
Do not make copies of any third-party software where it can be viewed by non-members. Please let us know if you see this happening.
Please do not distribute content shared by us or members with anyone who is not a member. The people in the space should feel safe to share personal information, including intellectual property or proprietary business knowledge, and it is important to respect their privacy.
Failure to follow The Delta’s Community Norms may result in your removal from the membership and/or the removal of your content. All determinations regarding this group, its members, and these guidelines are at our sole discretion and are final. By joining, you indemnify us of all liability relating to your use of The Delta and relationships with its members. By participating in the Community, you are also subject to The Delta’s policies. These policies may change at any time without notice.
4. Membership Details and Access
The Delta’s Founding Members have access to the space during the week from 8 AM - 11 PM Monday through Thursday, and 8 AM - 5 PM on Friday. If you need to use the space beyond those weekly hours and on weekends, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you especially if the space is not otherwise planned for use.
Membership, though, does not grant unconditional access. The Delta may be forced to limit access according to regulation or otherwise. We may close due to a private event during the weekly hours mentioned, or a membership event. In the case of a membership event, if the capacity allows, we will make every effort for Founding Members to be able to attend.
After this first season, membership access and numbers are likely to change. We thank you in advance for understanding as we get to know how the space can best serve the needs of our community.
Membership fees are subject to change and, depending on increased rate may apply once your current membership expires, at the end of each season and starting on the first day of the new quarter: January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st, respectively. Payments will occur automatically on the first date of each month. We must have a credit card on file for all monthly recurring payments and account charges. If payment information is not up to date and payment does not go through, it is your responsibility to provide a payment method within ten business days.
If you decide to upgrade your membership plan, we will start you on your new upgraded plan on your next billing day. If you decide to downgrade your membership plan, we will start you on your downgraded plan at the end of your then-current membership plan term. You will be charged for your 1st month at time of membership change. Founding members who wish to pay in full upfront will be billed at the beginning of the contract. All payments for prepaid monthly, and longer term membership plans are non-transferrable, non-pausable, and non-refundable, regardless of the reason or circumstances and even in the event the Pandemic, power outage or internet congestion, or another force majeure event impacts the Services. If our physical location closes, due to the Pandemic, no refunds will be issued, but we will downgrade existing membership plans to a virtual membership plan starting on your next billing day.
We value your membership and your contributions to The Delta community, but we understand that circumstances can change and you may need or decide to stop your membership.
Members on a quarterly membership payment plan are required to give The Delta 30-days’ notice to cancel their membership, otherwise they will be charged on the first of the following month. They will not be charged for the entire quarter. To cancel your membership, please submit a membership cancellation request in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that 6-month and annual prepaid memberships are non-refundable, cannot be paused, and do not auto renew. For example purposes only, should a member cancel her/his membership on June 20th, the member will be charged the following month’s rent (July) until his/her membership and related charges are terminated. In this instance, the member will not be charged anything after July 30th.
The Delta reserves the right to terminate a membership at our sole discretion. You agree not to use The Delta for any purpose that is unlawful, prohibited, or that could damage, disable or impair any of The Delta furnishings, equipment, or space, or keep other members from using The Delta, or that would hurt The Delta as an ongoing business. This also means you won’t attempt to gain access to any computer systems or networks of The Delta (beyond general web access), or attempt to obtain any materials or information not intentionally made available to all The Delta members. If your use of the Services violates these obligations, your membership will be terminated immediately.
We may terminate or suspend access to our Services immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach the Terms.
