However, I understand that Ilki Media, Inc. reserves the right to refuse service and/or cancel guest registrations – at any time – at its sole discretion, including, without limitation, if Ilki Media Inc. believes that customer conduct may violate applicable laws, disrupt Ilki Media, Inc.’s normal business activities, or is harmful in any way to Ilki Media, Inc., its volunteer staff, and/or other guests.

Waiver of Liability

I hereby waive and release, indemnify, hold harmless and forever discharge Ilki Media, Inc. and its agents, employees, officers, directors, affiliates, successors and assignees, coaches, teachers and trustees of and from any and all claims, demands, debts, contracts, expenses, causes of action, lawsuits, damages and liabilities, of every kind and nature, whether known or unknown, in law or equity, arising from or in any way relating to my participation in any of the events or activities conducted by, on the premises of, or for the benefit of Ilki Media, Inc.

I acknowledge there may be risks associated with physical activities, travel, and attendance at Live PCA Events, and that while these risks are minimal, they are nonetheless real. These include but are not limited to risks associated with food-borne illnesses or allergic reactions; walking on lawns, gravel driveways, and dirt paths; bending and reaching, sitting for long periods of time, and so on. I acknowledge that I am participating voluntarily, and that all risks have been made clear to me. Additionally, I do not have any conditions that will increase my likelihood of experiencing injuries while engaging in any of the activities associated with Live PCA Events.

The goal of Live PCA Events is to help each guest learn polymer clay and mixed media techniques while relaxing and enjoying the company of other creative people. Anything taught or spoken at any Live PCA Events should be treated as non-professional conversation, not in any way or form as professional counsel. This program is in no way a substitute for professional treatment for any diagnosed or undiagnosed physical, mental, or emotional illness, disease, or disorder. I understand that Ilki Media, Inc. advises me to consult a professional for any of these conditions.

By registering for any Live PCA Event I forfeit all rights to bring a suit against Ilki Media, Inc. for any reason. In short, I acknowledge that I am assuming all risk and responsibility for my personal health and safety while at a Live PCA Event.
