The Broad Place may at its discretion terminate any membership agreement without notice for any non-compliance of this agreement or any behaviour or action that they deem inappropriate, including failure to abide by the code of conduct, equipment usage and use of services notices to customers that are displayed within The Broad Place’s premises and in other venues I attend used by The Broad Place from time to time.
