Disclaimer 

To the fullest extent allowed by law, the Event Organisers agree to: 

  • Release Threshold from claims and demands of any kind arising from or related, directly or indirectly, to the fundraising event and 
  • Indemnify and hold harmless Threshold from any and all liability resulting from loss, damage or injury of any kind and in any way connected, directly or indirectly, with the fundraising event 

If, in the sole opinion of Threshold, an Event Organiser does not, in advance of the event, obtain necessary or prudent insurance cover and/or any required permit for the event (from Threshold or from any other person), Threshold reserves the right to withdraw or decline any association with the event, without giving prior notice to the Event Organiser. If that happens, Threshold may also publicise the fact that Threshold is not in any way associated with or endorsing the event. 

Threshold insurance does not apply to the fundraising event. In particular, it does not cover loss, damage or harm to any person organising, assisting with or participating in the fundraising event or to the property of any such person or any other person. 

Whether the fundraising event involves use of public parks, public areas or private property, Threshold does not accept any responsibility for any damage that may arise from or be caused (directly or indirectly) by such fundraising event. We recommend strongly that Event Organisers seek independent insurance advice prior to organising an event.
