Attendees acknowledge:

a) They are attending the course willingly and understand that they have the freedom to choose whether or not to participate in activities, role plays, examples, exercises, drills or any other part of the course/event.
b) A disclaimer form including information on medical histories or physical limitations will be required of every course participant. Although Protect takes all possible precautions to ensure the safety of all attendees/participants, attendees/participants acknowledge that participation is completely at their own risk and neither Protect, Protects Instructors, Associates, Facilitators or agents can be held in any way responsible for, and are therefore completely indemnified against, any injury or damage to yourself or property while attending any Protect Course, Training or Event of any type. It is recommended that you consult with a physician before participating in any form of exercise or exercise program.
c) Results indicated that could be achieved by attending any Protect course or training/event are provided as examples only and are based on previous attendee/participant achievements and experience. Attendees acknowledge their own decisions/abilities/situations may or may not lead them to achieve the same result but that the results referred to are possible because others have achieved them.

Protect therefore cannot be held responsible for any outcomes obtained by participants or any injury or other negative effect experienced as a result of attending an event/seminar/training.
