By booking a birthday party at Handiwork studio + market, you indicate your acceptance of the following terms:

Release and Waiver of Liability and Indemnity Agreement

In consideration of my involvement and/or my minor child’s involvement with HANDIWORK LLC (the “Events or Activities”), I hereby agree to the terms of this Release and Waiver of Liability and Indemnity Agreement (“Agreement”). 

I HEREBY WAIVE AND RELEASE, INDEMNIFY, HOLD HARMLESS, and FOREVER DISCHARGE Handiwork LLC, and its owners, agents, employees, officers, directors, affiliates, successors, and assigns (collectively, “the Released Parties”), from any and all claims, demands, debts, contracts, expenses, causes of action, lawsuits, damages, and liabilities, of any and every kind and nature, whether known or unknown, in law or equity, that I ever had or may have, arising from or in any way related to my participation or to my minor child’s participation in any of the Events or Activities offered by, conducted by, on the premises of, or for the benefit of, the Released Parties—provided that this waiver of liability does not apply to any acts of gross negligence, or intentional, willful or wanton misconduct. I fully understand and accept that my waiver and release, indemnification, and discharge of the Released Parties as reflected herein extends fully to any Events or Activity that takes place at a location other than Handiwork LLC itself. 

I fully understand that the Events or Activities that I and/or my minor child will participate in have the potential to be or to become dangerous, and that those Events or Activities likewise have the potential to cause injuries, including bodily injury, damage to personal property, and/or serious bodily injury or even death. On behalf of myself and/or my minor child, and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, and next of kin, I hereby expressly waive and release any and all claims for damages or injuries—whether physical, mental, emotional, or otherwise—sustained by me or to my property, or sustained by my minor child or to his/her property, that I may have as against the Released Parties related to such Event or Activity. 

I understand that my photograph or likeness, and/or my minor child’s photograph or likeness, may be published to social media and/or the Handiwork LLC website, and/or may be posted on other promotional material or in other promotional media. I understand that the decision to post any such photograph or likeness is a decision committed solely and exclusively to Handiwork LLC.

This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties, and supersedes any prior written or oral agreements between them concerning the subject matter of this Agreement. The provisions of this Agreement may be waived, altered, amended or repealed, in whole or in part, only upon the prior written agreement of all parties—including Handiwork LLC. The provisions of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect even after the termination of the Events or Activities conducted by, on the premises of, off the premises of, or for the benefit of the Released Parties, whether by agreement, by operation of law, or otherwise. I have read, understand, and fully agree to each of the terms of this Agreement. 

To the best of my knowledge, my child has no physical, emotional, or social conditions that make it dangerous for him/her to participate in any Event or Activity conducted or offered by Handiwork LLC. If my minor child’s condition were to change, I understand that it is my responsibility to inform Handiwork LLC of those changes. 

I understand and agree that, unless otherwise expressly stated herein, no oral or written representations can or will alter the terms of this document. I agree that this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Maine. 

I further understand, confirm, and agree that by signing this Agreement I have given up considerable future legal rights—rights that otherwise may or would have been held by me and/or my minor child absent this Agreement. I have signed this Agreement freely, voluntarily, under no duress or threat of duress, without inducement, promise, or guarantee being communicated to me. My signature is proof of my intention to execute a complete and unconditional WAIVER AND RELEASE of, and INDEMNIFICATION from, all liability to the full extent of the law. I am 18 years of age or older and mentally competent to enter into this waiver, and hereby do so on either my own behalf and/or on the behalf of my minor child.
