No monetary compensation or reimbursement of fees will be made to Members, Non-Members or Guests of Number Fifty in the event that the internet is disconnected or disrupted due to events or circumstances outside of our control.

Excessive use of downloads/uploads or any illegal activities using the internet will result in your access being cancelled. Our service provides unlimited download/upload, however transferring files of a significant size may slow down the speed for other users, which can cause particular issues if people are broadcasting live webinars, podcasts or the like. As such we request that you withhold any significantly large file transfers to out-of-hours (and double-check that no members are broadcasting at the time.)

We highly recommend a program called SLACK if you wish to communicate with others in the office space. We can assist you with setting this up at your first booking.

If you are working on something that requires focus and you don’t want to be distracted or disturbed, we recommend bringing headphones (noise cancelling if possible). We also have a system where you can notify someone that you wish to remain uninterrupted.

If you focus better with music on, we ask that you use a set of headphones. We will provide background music for the office, but we understand and appreciate that not everyone has the same taste in music or may prefer no music at all in their headphones.
