Candified Creation Stations

Assumption of Risk, Release of Liability and Waiver

By signing this Sweet Delights and Bites Adventure Consent (this “Consent”), I, on behalf of my kiddo (the “Candified Guest”), am saying ‘YES’ to participate in the outrageously fun and delightful activities (“Creation Stations”) offered by Candified, Inc., a California-based sweet spot (“Candified”). I assure you that I have the power to give this Consent as the Candified Guest’s parent or legal guardian, and I willingly accept all the adventures and surprises that come with Creation Stations and the sampling of the goodies we make.

I’m well aware that the creative activities involve a pinch of risks, such as unexpected slips, accidental nicks, food allergies, and other unforeseen events that might pop up during our Candy Creation journey. By signing this document, I willingly accept all risks tied to our Candified Guest’s involvement in Creation Stations and the tasting of our sweet masterpieces and am sharing any crucial medical information with the friendly folks at Candified including food allergies or diet specifics for our Candified Guest or myself. Please note that Candified isn’t responsible for any tummy upsets or health issues that might occur from sampling any of the edible treats from our Creation Stations.

Candified Creation Stations might not be a perfect match for everyone, like those with food allergies, budding chefs under 18, or individuals with conditions influenced by their diet. We recommend a quick chat with your doctor if you have any food-related concerns. I acknowledge that certain creations crafted by Candified may be more visually captivating than suitable for consumption, and I hereby release Candified from any liability in the event that our esteemed Candified Guest chooses to playfully indulge in such non-edible masterpieces.

In appreciation for allowing our Candified Guest to partake in Creation Stations, I agree to release, indemnify, defend, protect and hold harmless Candified and its Candyologists (members, managers, officers, owners, employees, agents, contractors, representatives, volunteers, interns, insurers) from any and all complaints, demands, or legal actions (including attorney’s fees) connected to Candified or Creation Stations. If any disagreements take a legal turn, we agree to sort things out in arbitration, and any resulting decision shall be final and binding.

We are a very social place! And while we’re making sweet memories, Candified might decide to snap some pics or record our Candy Creation journey. As a little extra sweetness to the Creation Stations experience, I’m okay with Candified capturing and reusing our Candified Guest’s voice, image, and likeness through photos, videos, or any other recording methods. Candified can use these captured moments as they wish, and I confirm that Candified owns the copyright to such content. I also relinquish any claim to royalties or other benefits connected to Candified’s use of such content and release any rights to publicity or privacy tied to it.

This Consent outlines the whole understanding between Candified, its team, and me. It stands strong, not influenced by any promises or declarations made by any of Candified’s crew. Governed by California law, this Consent, which affects the legal rights of our Candified Guest and myself, is being signed by me on behalf of our Candified Guest, and also binds their successors to its terms.
