WARNING UNDER THE AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW AND FAIR TRADING ACT

Under the Australian Consumer Law (Victoria), several statutory guarantees apply to the supply of certain goods and services. These guarantees mean that the supplier named on this form is required to ensure that the recreational services it supplies to you-

·         are rendered with due care and skill; and

·         are reasonably fit for any purpose which you, either expressly or by implication, make known to the supplier; and

·         might reasonably be expected to achieve any result you have made known to the supplier.

Under section 22 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012, the supplier is entitled to ask you to agree that these statutory guarantees do not apply to you. If you sign this form, you will be agreeing that your rights to sue the supplier under the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012 if you are killed or injured because the services provided were not in accordance with these guarantees, are excluded, restricted or modified in the way set out in this form.

NOTE: The change to your rights, as set out in this form, does not apply if your death or injury is due to gross negligence on the supplier’s part. Gross negligence, in relation to an act or omission, means doing the act or omitting to do an act with reckless disregard, with or without consciousness, for the consequences of the act or omission. See regulation 5 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Regulations 2012 and section 22(3)(b) of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012.

EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY – VICTORIAN CONSUMER ACT

Where the Victorian Consumer Act applies to the Supplier’s performance of the Services, the Supplier will have no liability to you or the Participant in respect of death or:

(a)    an injury of a natural person (including the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of an injury of the individual); or

(b)    the contraction, aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of a disease of a natural person; or

(c)    the coming into existence, the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of any other condition, circumstance, occurrence, activity, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs in relation to a natural person that is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to, or result in harm or disadvantage to the person or the community,

because of an act or omission by the Supplier which constitutes a failure to comply with the Consumer Guarantees.  This exclusion of liability will not apply where the relevant act or omission was done or omitted to be done with reckless disregard, with or without consciousness, for the consequences of the act of omission.

EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY – AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER ACT

Where the Australian Consumer Act applies to the Supplier’s performance of the Services, the Supplier will have no liability to you or the Participant in respect of death or:

(c)    the coming into existence, the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of any other condition, circumstance, occurrence, activity, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs in relation to an individual that is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to the individual or community, or that may result in harm or disadvantage to the individual or community,

because of an act or omission by the Supplier which constitutes a failure to comply with the Consumer Guarantees.  This exclusion of liability will not apply where the person suffers significant personal injury that is caused by the reckless conduct of the Supplier.  The Supplier’s conduct is reckless conduct if the Supplier is a or should reasonably have been aware, of a significant risk that the conduct could result in personal injury to another person and engages in the conduct despite the risk and without adequate justification.
