Terms & Conditions



We’re including this session as standard practice, but don’t worry - we’ll try to keep this short and sweet :)  

Accident, Injury and Medical Conditions - Liability Waiver

International guests, please note: Under New Zealand law, litigation attempts relating to accident and injury are extremely unlikely to be successful. Any personal injury you suffer while in New Zealand will likely be covered by New Zealand’s Accident Compensation Scheme (ACC), which covers visitors as well as New Zealand residents. However this assistance is likely to be limited. Consequently, it is strongly recommended that you obtain full insurance covering injury, illness and cancellation.

  1. You hereby acknowledge that participating in New Frontiers 2017 brings with it a degree of danger and risk, and that while Kiwi Connect, Edmund Hillary Fellowship, and AV Community staff and volunteers will ensure the safety and welfare of participants to the highest standard possible, it will not accept liability for loss, injury or damage sustained by a participant or his/her dependents (whether in circumstances where such an event could not have been avoided by the exercise of reasonable care, or not).

  2. You hereby acknowledge that while the Kiwi Connect, Edmund Hillary Fellowship, and AV Community teams will take all practicable steps to identify and minimise potential dangers, you are responsible for your own actions, and for the actions of any persons under the age of 18 in your care.

  3. You agree that in relation to any activities you undertake involving personal risk, you do so voluntarily, and at your own risk.

  4. You release and indemnify Kiwi Connect, Edmund Hillary Fellowship, and AV Community staff and volunteers against any liability incurred during New Frontiers 2017.

  5. I certify that the information I have provided in my RSVP regarding medical condition/s or other information is correct.
