Relationship between Abler and Enabled
Abling is a platform that aims to benefit individuals who are registered as terminally ill, have a long term illness or are under the care of a registered charity. In order to prevent the platform being abused Enabled applicants will be asked to demonstrate that they meet Abling’s minimum criteria at the time of registration. Similarly Abling has minimum criteria for Ablers and the Enabled to meet (details of which will be requested by Abling at the time of registration).
While we make it possible for Ablers and Enabled to connect and to participate in Experiences and will help resolve any issues that arise, all Experiences are run separately by Ablers.
Only Ablers that self-certify that they meet our minimum criteria are able to create an account to our site. However the participation in an Experience is subject to a separate and direct relationship between the Abler and the Enabled. In particular, we do not undertake any technical examination of the equipment, facilities, services or qualifications of the Abler. Enabled’s (or their guardian) should undertake their own checks and request copies of relevant documentation such as insurance cover, qualifications or licences.
All Experiences are offered subject to availability, vehicles, equipment, facilities, staff of the Ablers and weather. Bookings should be made directly with the Abler and subject to their individual terms and conditions.
Both Abler and Enabled have the right to refuse to take part in the activities should they not feel comfortable. However if either party should wish to cancel they should give the other party at least 48 hours’ notice unless otherwise agreed between the parties.
Certain Experiences provided by Ablers are subject to restrictions such as, but not limited to, minimum age, health or other requirements. The Abler providing the Experience will usually provide these on their website and advise at the time of booking, although are subject to change at any time. It is the Enabled’s responsibility to check they meet the restrictions. Once the Enabled has confirmed a booking they are not eligible for any compensation if they are forced to cancel because the minimum requirements are not met.
Please leave plenty of time to get to the venue. Experiences may require a safety briefing, if this is required it is essential that the Enabled attends the briefing otherwise they will not be able to participate.
Where the Experience requires the wearing of safety equipment such as a crash helmet or life jacket this is mandatory and there are no exceptions. The Ablers will advise the Enabled of all safety precautions relevant to the Experience in the confirmation details. The Enabled, or its staff, reserve the right to end an Experience if they believe the Enabled may endanger themselves or other members of the public.
By their nature some Experiences may be dangerous. Prior to ordering or participating in any course or Experience the Enabled should be aware of the risks involved. It is the responsibility of the Ablers to advise of the risks and the Enabled to be aware of the risks and make independent enquiries with the Abler and other third parties as to the need to acquire their own additional insurance cover.
Enabled (or their guardian) should make their own enquiries with the Abler as to any level of insurance (if any) that is in place before their Experience. We make no warranty or representation about the Experience or level of insurance whatsoever.
If an Enabled encounters a problem during an Experience or with booking with an Abler they should bring it to the attention of the Abler immediately to allow them a chance to resolve the issue. If the Enabled feels the action taken by the Abler was unsatisfactory please email us at email@example.com as soon as possible after the Experience or incident arose providing all the facts. We will respond within 28 days of receiving an email complaint. Abling undertakes to investigate all complaints that have been highlighted with its Ablers on the day of the Experience. Failure to highlight issues on the day of the Experience may jeopardise investigations.
Limitation of Liability
The Abler shall be responsible for the:
- safety standards, the quality and delivery of the Experience; and
- any loss or damage suffered by the Enabled while participating in the Experience, save for any act or omission of the Enabled.
