Living Porpoisefully® Sea School Terms + Conditions
In registering for Living Porpoisefully® Sea School courses, you acknowledge and accept risk, and terms of conditions of participation:
Risks and Release: I have reviewed the description of the Living Porpoisefully® Sea School online program and feel that I have sufficiently informed myself about the nature of the activities involved. I acknowledge that there is some risk involved in my child’s participation of the program, and I acknowledge and accept these risks and that Living Porpoisefully®, LLC Sea School (hereafter “LP Sea School”) takes no responsibility for these risks. I confirm that I understand that I am responsible for supervising my child during their participation in these online activities. I further confirm and understand that the content of this course is for educational purposes only.
In consideration of my child(ren)’s attendance in the Sea School online program, and in recognition of the above, I on behalf of myself and my child(ren):
Release LP Sea School, its directors, agents, and employees from any and all liability for any loss, damage, injury or expense that I, or my child(ren), may suffer or incur by reason of my or my child(ren)’s participation in LP Sea School online program; Waive any and all claims, demands, damages, actions or causes of actions against LP Sea School, its directors, agents, and employees, arising out of or in consequence of any loss, injury or damage to my person or property incurred in relation to my engagement and my child(ren)’s engagement with LP Sea School, even if any such loss, injury, or damage may have arisen by reason of the negligence of LP Sea School, its directors, agents or employees; Will indemnify and hold harmless LP Sea School, its directors, agents, and employees from any and all liability for loss, damage, injury or expense (including actual legal fees), suffered or incurred by me or my child(ren) in connection with my child(ren)’s presence at, or participation in LP Sea School’s online program, and specifically for any liability payments and legal costs made pursuant to a settlement or trial judgment in favor of my child(ren).
Activities: LP Sea School may involve working with items including, but not limited to, the following: household chemicals, glass, scissors, craft items, food, ovens and microwaves. Activities may include physical movements and exercise, outdoor “nature” investigations, and water play activities. It is the responsibility of the Guardian to supervise the child when using any items or participating in the activities associated with the LP Sea School course.
Video Conferencing and Chat: In order to deliver interactive online programs, we may use the video conferencing tool Zoom (or alternate substitute) and/or chat tools. LP Sea School may store or access your child’s personal information. This information will not be disclosed outside of LP Sea School without your consent.
Supervision + Supply Sourcing is the Responsibility of Guardians: Guardians must supervise and support their child when participating in an LP Sea School online program. The supervision provided should be at an age-appropriate level for a child working on an independent project. LP Sea School does not supply the physical materials for the activities. You must be able to access the internet and print downloaded files. Guardians must be easily available if the child summons them. Participation in an LP Sea School online program is not a substitute for guardian supervision.
Internet Use has Inherent Risks: In order to support student learning, these programs are being offered online. Internet use carries with it inherent risks. During this program, youth will access the internet and interact with other youth in a structured online environment. Youth may also interact with the instructor via email for question and answer sessions. It is the responsibility of the guardian to structure their child’s internet access in an age-appropriate manner. We also encourage guardians to talk to their child about online privacy and responsible online engagement.
Session Will be Recorded for Safety and Training Purposes: To protect the safety of participants and instructors, online sessions and chats will be recorded whenever possible. Recordings may be accessed by LP Sea School staff for training purposes, as a part of an incident review process, or for use in promotional materials.
Email Communications: I agree to be sent information via email about LP Sea School’s programs, including but not limited to photos and videos taken during the programs.
Photography and Promotions: LP Sea School will occasionally take pictures and/or videos of its camp participants to send to parents and for use in promotional materials or publications (websites, social media, brochures, etc.). I agree to allow LP Sea School to reproduce the likeness of my child in such promotional/advertisement materials and publications.
