Merchants Terms of Use

These Terms of Use were last updated on December 13, 2022.

By accessing and using (the “Marketplace”), you are agreeing to be legally bound by these Terms of Use, individually, on behalf of your organization, and on behalf of all users accessing and using the Guesst Platform through your company’s account (“Profile Users”).

1. General

The Marketplace allows you, as a tenant, licensee, occupier, franchisee, vendor, and/or lessee, to search for leasable properties (the “Properties”) listed on the Marketplace by property owners, licensors, owners, franchisors, asset managers, landlords, lessors, and vendors (“Landlords”) to lease such Properties. You agree to provide Guesst with any information requested by Guesst that is necessary (a) to the operation of the Marketplace and (b) for Guesst to assign you to a Marketplace Coordinator and for such Marketplace Coordinators to provide you with appropriate Properties (the “Services”), including without limitation providing information about Merchant’s business, space needs, and financials.

If you and Landlord enter into an agreement by which you lease space from Landlord at a Property (a “Trial Agreement”), such Trial Agreement shall have a term of three (3) months and any rent paid thereunder shall be calculated as a percentage of your profits at the Property (“Percentage Rent”). Following the expiration of the term of the Trial Agreement, any lease, rental agreement, license agreement, franchise agreement or vendor agreement entered into by you and Landlord shall be negotiated outside the Marketplace and Guesst shall have no role, obligation or liability with respect to such negotiation.

When you accept these Terms of Use, you acknowledge and agree that each time you add a business, space need or Profile User, you reaffirm your acceptance of these Terms of Use.
