Terms & Conditions for Classes and Events:

Most IUH classes and events are held in private homes not equipped with any special emergency supplies beyond first aid kits and fire extinguishers.  By enrolling in or attending a class, you are knowingly and voluntarily consenting to participate in such a setting.  Your enrollment or attendance indicates you acknowledge that classes may include the use of live animals and/or potentially hazardous equipment including but not limited to kitchen knives, stoves and ovens, or gardening tools.

In consideration thereof, you (for yourself, your heirs, your personal representatives, or assigns) do hereby permanently release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue the Institute of Urban Homesteading, its officers, employees, teachers, or premises from liability for any and all claims resulting in personal injury, accidents, or illnesses (including death) and property loss arising from, but not limited to, participation in an IUH class or event.

Should an injury occur during class, you agree to alert the instructor immediately so that he or she may provide assistance and call emergency services if necessary. In the event of a conflict of any kind with IUH, its officers, agents, or employees, you agree to resolve such conflict through private mediation rather than through legal means.
