Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement
The Practical Magic Weekend Retreat is a workshop event (“Event”) organised by Kate Taylor | Creative Living (“Organiser”) which includes 1-7 days of attendance at various locations both domestically (United Kingdom) and internationally.
I, for myself, my heirs, personal representatives or assigns, do hereby forever release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue the Organiser or their employees or agents and release them from liability from any and all claims resulting in personal injury, accidents or illnesses (including death), other than through negligence - and property loss (including theft) arising from, but not limited to, participation in activities, observation, and use of facilities, premises, transport or equipment, and with regard to advice, recommendations and programs relating to or in connection with my involvement in the Event.
I am over 18, in good health, and am physically and mentally capable of handling any proposed activities.
If an activity is proposed for which I do not feel physically or mentally prepared, I will notify the Organiser and will voluntarily not undertake that activity. I fully understand that no refund will be made for unused services or portion of the event. While the Organiser will endeavour to adhere to the proposed schedule and services, should they deem it necessary to make changes, I agree that they have the final word and authority.
I am responsible for my own actions.
I agree and understand that Kate Taylor | Creative Living and its employees, contractors, agents, and owners, including Kate Taylor | Creative Living or Catriona Taylor as an individual (collectively, "Company") assume no responsibility for me and that my participation in the Event is purely voluntary and at my sole discretion.
I am also aware of the potential stress, physical, and mental requirements, and I fully assume all responsibility of my own wellbeing and actions, both physically and mentally.
I am responsible if I do something disruptive or illegal.
Should I be found to possess any illegal drugs or contraband of any kind or if I violate any applicable laws at the Event location or should I act without regard for the safety of other Event participants, the facilitators at their discretion may ask me to leave the event. Any person who appears intoxicated or otherwise disruptive to the conduct of a class or activity may, at the sole discretion of Kate Taylor | Creative Living be asked not to participate, forfeiting any payments made. Participants will be totally responsible for any financial or physical damages incurred due to their actions, whether intentional or not.
