I agree to abide by the policies and procedures surrounding the use of Virtual Reality (VR) equipment and services, hereafter collectively referred to as “VR Services”, provided by the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre (FFPLTC). I agree to the terms of this agreement on behalf of any children I can legally represent, if indicated below.
My use of VR Services entails known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to myself, to property, or to third parties. I understand that such risks cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. The risks include, among other things: seizures, loss of awareness, eye strain, eye or muscle twitching, involuntary movements, altered, blurred, or double vision or other visual abnormalities, dizziness, disorientation, impaired balance, impaired hand-eye coordination, excessive sweating, increased salivation, nausea, light-headedness, discomfort or pain in the head or eyes, drowsiness, decreased ability to multi-task, fatigue, or any symptoms similar to motion sickness, all of which can persist and become more apparent hours after use and which may lead to an increased risk of injury when engaging in normal activities in the real world.
FFPLTC staff seek to create a safe environment but may be unaware of a participant's health or abilities. FFPLTC staff may give incomplete warnings or instructions. VR Services may malfunction. I expressly agree to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. I am responsible for restricting access to VR Services provided to me by the FFPLTC to my own personal use. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.
I release and hold harmless the FFPLTC, their board, staff, volunteers, and committees from and against any and all liability, loss, damages, claims, or actions (including costs and lawyer’s fees) for damage to myself or my property, arising from my use of VR Services.
I agree to indemnify the above parties for any liability, loss, damages, claims or actions (including costs and lawyer’s fees) brought by a third party arising from my use of VR Services.
If any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
