Under the provisions of the Fair Trading Act 1999 several conditions are implied into contracts for the supply of certain goods and services. These conditions mean that TriKids is required to ensure that the recreational services it supplies to you are rendered with due care and skill; and

as fit for the purpose for which they are commonly bought as it is reasonable to expect in the circumstances; and
reasonably fit for any particular purpose or might reasonably be expected to achieve any result you have made known to the supplier.

If you sign this form, you will be agreeing that your rights to sue the supplier under the Fair Trading Act 1999 if you are killed or injured because the services were not rendered with due care and skill or they were not reasonably fit for their purpose, 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” is defined in the Fair Trading (Recreational Services) Regulations 2004.

  1. Liability for supply of other services

Without limitation to information supplied in these terms and conditions and any other terms which are implied into this agreement by statute in relation to the supply of services which cannot be excluded or limited, we will ensure that the services that we provide to you/your child are provided with due care and skill, are fit for the purpose for which they are commonly bought as is reasonable to expect in the circumstances, will correspond in the nature and quality with the services demonstrated to you, and are free from any defect rendering them unfit for the purposes for which our services are commonly acquired. To the extent permitted by law, and again without limitation unless we have breached these obligations, we will not be liable for any death, injury, loss, liability or damage that you may incur as a result of the services provided by us to you.
