Note: these terms and conditions are subject to change.

Privacy Policy

Seattle Makers does not share or sell personal information collected in our facility or via SeattleMakers.org.

 

Membership Autorenewal

Seattle Makers bills members on a recurring basis each month on the day of the month membership was initiated.  All membership cancellations must occur prior to the next bill date.  Members can cancel their own accounts online at SeattleMakers.org; sign into your account and go to your profile. In the upper right, select the “payment” icon, and then select your membership payment plan. In the window that pops up, scroll down to the “Plan details” section and un-check the box that says “Auto Renew”. That’s all there is to it!  If you want to start your membership again, simply check that box to re-start auto-renewal.

 

Cancellations and Refunds
Membership Refund Policy

Seattle Makers offers refunds if membership is cancelled within 5 days of activation. After five days, Seattle Makers does not offer membership refunds except for specific cases, such as disability or death. A 10% processing fee will be assessed for all membership refunds.  Please send refund requests to to members@seattlemakers.org.

Class Cancellation Policy

A 10% processing fee will be assessed for all cancelled or rescheduled individual class registrations requested 48 hours or longer before the scheduled class.  Please send refund or rescheduling requests to events@seattlemakers.org.  Cancellations made by customers less than 48 hours before the start of the scheduled class will not be refunded.  Although we make our best effort to accommodate late-notice cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances, Seattle Makers cannot be responsible for giving refunds for classes, workshops, or other programming with less than 48 hours notice.

Seattle Makers reserves the right to cancel programming at any time and will notify students via email and/or phone. In the case of a class cancellation, Seattle Makers will notify class attendees no less than 24 hours before the scheduled class. In the rare event of an Seattle Maker-initiated cancellation, a full refund or credit will be issued.

Seattle Makers does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, sex, gender, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.

Age Policy

Unless otherwise specified, Seattle Makers classes are open to anyone 11+.  Our insurance covers youth makers 11-17, and adults 18+. Anyone under the age of 18 requires a guardian present while they are in the space. Guardians who are not interested in making can purchase the Limited membership here. If you have any questions about youth memberships, call us at 833-2-MAKE-IT.  For more information about memberships, see our membership options.
