LIABILITY DISCLAIMER, INDEMINTY, WAIVER AND RELEASE OF CLAIMS
1. I acknowledge and agree that the MyRyde or Steeple CX events (“Events”) are a series of cyclo-cross style cycling races held throughout a calendar year, and that it is inherent in the Events that there are the risks of serious injury, illness, death and/or damage to participants, sports and other equipment.
2. I acknowledge that the risks inherent in the Events, include, but are not limited to risks arising from my skill and ability as a cyclist, my nutrition and fluid intake, my fitness and health prior to the Events, the terrain which the Events traverse, road surface, weather conditions, water conditions, vehicular traffic, the actions of other participants or spectators or bystanders, the Event organisers, operators, subcontractors, sponsors, service providers, suppliers, and their respective affiliates, principals, representatives, agents and assigns. I undertake and agree to seek medical or any other assistance from the Event organisers, if I sense or observe a hazard or unsafe condition, or if, at any time, I feel unable or unfit to safely continue participating in any Event for any reason. I furthermore undertake to withdraw from participation in any Event if advised or instructed by the organisers of the Event to do so or if I, at any time, sense or observe any unusual hazard or unsafe condition and I am in any way concerned that it is unsafe for me to continue with the Event, or if I in any way feel unable or unfit to safely continue with any Event.
3. I appreciate and understand the risks inherent in the Events and my participation therein. I accept these risks and confirm that I participate in the Events at my own sole and absolute risk.
4. I undertake to follow all the rules of any Event and all directions and/or instructions given to me by the Event organisers, operators, subcontractors and their principals, representatives, agents and assigns.

I acknowledge the Events are owned by T3 Multisports (Proprietary) Limited (“Owner”) and where applicable, organised and operated in partnership with Curro Holdings Limited and their subcontractors being Curro Holding Limited educational facilities and employees (“Operator”) . I hereby consent to the Owner assigning to the Operator all Event operating responsibilities hereunder and all other rights of Operator in relation to my participation in or registration for any Event.
6. I acknowledge that entry fees contributed are entirely non-refundable. Without limitation, if any Event, or any part thereof, is cancelled, postponed or otherwise amended, or if any of the amenities, goods or services in relation to any Event are no longer provided, whether due to force majeure, safety reasons, failure by service providers to perform, or any other reason or cause, entry fees contributed will not be refundable, and the decision to do so will be within the sole and absolute discretion of the Owner.
7. I understand that I may be photographed and/or filmed before, during and after any Event. I agree that the Owner or Operator, its affiliates, and their respective principals, representatives, agents, assigns, and designees (including sponsors) may utilise any photographic, film or video image or likeness of me and/or my name for any legitimate purpose (worldwide, in any media, and without payment or attribution) in connection with any Event, or future Events or races of the Owner, Operator or any of its affiliates.
8. Whilst reasonable safety and precautionary measures are taken by the Event organisers to ensure my safety, the Owner, Operator, subcontractors, event sponsors, suppliers, third party service providers to any Event, private landowners who grant access to their property for the purposes of any Event, and their respective affiliates, holding companies, principals, representatives, agents and assignees (collectively, “Parties”) do not accept , and I hereby irrevocably and fully release each from, any responsibility for any claim whatsoever arising in connection with any death, injury or loss and/or damage to person or property occasioned as a result of or in connection with my participation in, or attendance at, any Event. This includes, but is not limited to, the damage to, theft of, loss of, or disappearance of bicycles, cars, or other material properties parked, housed, or left in the bike or parking areas at any Event venue or on any route.

10. This liability disclaimer, indemnity, and waiver and release of claims applies irrespective of who or how you entered for any Event. It applies to you even if someone else entered you for any Event. That person warrants that you have authorised them to do so and that that person can legally bind you as participant to this liability disclaimer, indemnity, and waiver and release of claims.
11. Any participant younger than 18 (eighteen) years old on the date of entering (“Minor”), may not participate unless their parent(s) or your legal guardian(s) have agreed to be bound by this liability disclaimer, indemnity, and waiver and release of claims.

PROTECTING YOUR PRIVACY
1. Protecting your privacy is as important to us as it is to you. For us, it’s more than just making sure we comply with the relevant legislation; you trust us with your personal information and we respect that trust. This privacy notice explains why and how we collect, use and store your personal information. If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. In your dealings with MyRyde we obtain information about you. We want you to know exactly what that information is and what we do with it. After all, trust is nothing without transparency.
3. We ask for your information to make sure that we know who is at our events and are able to offer you the right products and services. This includes making sure that we know your loyalty affiliations for discounts and sending you promotional information.
4. The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI) is aimed at protecting your personal information and prescribes what we must and must not do with it. POPI created an Information Regulator who checks that companies manage personal information in a responsible manner that respects your privacy.
5. Other legislation also applies to your personal information. The Safety at Sports and Recreational Events Act requires that we know who is at our events and how to assist them in the event of emergencies or disasters.

6. From time to time we may have to amend this notice to accommodate changes in our business or services or if legal requirements change.

17. Your privacy is important to us, which is why it is our policy not to share your personal information with other companies. We will never sell your personal information.
18. We use suppliers or service providers who we trust to provide services to us and sometimes that involves sharing your information with them. They operate under strict requirements aimed at keeping your personal information secure and confidential and they will only use it for the purpose for which we have sent it to them.
19. Some of these service providers may be located in other countries that may not have the same levels of protection of personal information as South Africa. If this is the case, we require that they undertake to protect the personal information of our customers to the same level that we do.
20. You have the right to know what personal information we have about you, to correct it and to opt out of any marketing.
21. You have the right to: a. ask what personal information we hold about you; b. ask what information was sent to our suppliers, service providers or any other third party; c. ask us to update, correct or delete any out-of-date or incorrect personal information we hold about you; d. unsubscribe from any direct marketing communications we may send you; e. object to the processing of your personal information.
22. It can take us up to 21 days to respond to your request.
23. If you want us to delete all personal information we have about you, you will probably have to terminate all agreements you have with us.
