They will be publicly-accessible places such as public squares etc. or semi-publicly-accessible places and/or private businesses (such as bars, cafes, hostels etc.), as well as private places.
A COMMONAUTS BASE is always and only considered as such, when it is promoted on the COMMONAUTS.COM website by COMMONAUTS or announced by COMMONAUTS via any other electronic medium (even exclusively to only certain people). Any other place where the COMMONAUTS stickers are used by people is not a COMMONAUTS BASE.

COMMONAUTS does not surveil or control these COMMONAUTS BASES and is not responsible for actions of the guests or employees of such COMMONAUTS BASES and we explicitly state that by attending a COMMONAUTS BASE, the user itself is fully responsible for him- or herself and that COMMONAUTS is not liable for anything happening at these COMMONAUTS BASES (official venues where the COMMONAUTS stickers are used).
