Terms and Conditions


We believe in being “nice, not evil”. So before we get into all the legal stuff (below) we wanted to give a very simple overview of the terms and conditions of our site.

Woffee is here to assist you in finding and using great locations to work, access wi-fi and/or grab a cup of coffee. We are not trying to take over the world, or help anyone else take over the world, just make things a little bit easier. Along the way it would be great if you helped by providing a fair review from time to time, or even added a favourite venue or two of yours to the site.

We will use this information sensibly, to make it easier for you and your friends and colleagues find new and great places to go. We may even try to give you a good offer or two along the way. That’s it.

We won’t do evil things with your info. And all we ask in return is that you look after the site when you visit – wiping your shoes on the way in (you don’t even have to take them off!) and on your way out, leave things tidy and where you found them for others to use later.

If you have any questions or would like to get in touch, just leave a note on our fridge door: admin@woffee.com.


A quick snack on Cookies before we get to the Legal stuff...

We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. The aim is to make things easier for you. We don't do anything nasty with cookies...we're too busy finding great venues for you to visit... To agree that you don't mind us using cookies, when you see a Cookie pop-up, please click "Yes, I agree", or on any other link on the page.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

There are two kinds of cookies - session (set on a short-term basis and auto-deleting after a few minutes or when you close your browser), usually in order to register to a website that you are logged in to it, and persistent, set by the website and stored for a longer period of time, usually used to store commonly entered information on forms (such as your name, address, and telephone number), any preferences the website might allow you to store in terms of layout and functionality, and information about your browsing habits across multiple sites, usually used to allow advertisers and social network site operators to target advertising at you.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and help us create a more useful and easy to use site. The data collected is completely anonymous and does not store any personal details. The information, collected by Google through the use of the cookie, is used to analyse how visitors make use of the website and allows us to gather statistical information such as website activity, visitor numbers, popular pages, customer journey through the website, etc. If you would like to opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics you can use the opt-out tool at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

If you've created an online customer account with us (or joined via FConnect), a cookie is set which logs this fact on your computer, but no further data is stored or collected. Some other areas of our website estate use cookies as part of how they store and pass your search data.

The use of persistent cookies in the European Union has been regulated by EU Directive 2002/58 on Privacy and Electronic Communications, and in the UK is enacted under the authority of the Information Commissioner's Office.
