Any reservations subsequently cancelled by a Hirer or by the Workspace Owner at a Hirer's request are subject to the cancellation policy applicable to the relevant Workspace. Cancellation policies may vary between Workspaces and Workspace Owners. By using the Service, you agree that you must pay any Workspace Owner any cancellation or change fees that may apply or that may be agreed between you and the Workspace Owner. You further agree to comply with all terms and conditions imposed in regard to your pre-paid Workspace reservation.
