           (ii)    cancel a Booking for a Service if the Customer fails to make payments as and when they fall due. 

2.2    DISCLAIMERS
   (a)        While Messy Makers commits to cleaning the area once the Service has concluded, please be advised that we are not responsible for cleaning stains on carpeted areas. To ensure the best experience, we recommend hosting parties in an area where food and various stains can be easily cleaned. Our cleaning procedure extends to the specific area where the activities are conducted and does not encompass the entire venue or household. 
   (b)        If a Messy Makers educator observes that a child is unwell or displays symptoms of sickness, either before or during the Service, Messy Makers reserves the right to disallow the child's attendance in the interest of health and safety for all participants. Please note that no refunds or credits will be issued in such cases.
   (c)        While we prioritise the safety of all children by taking allergies seriously, we cannot guarantee a completely allergen-free environment. Parents and guardians are responsible for informing us about their child's allergies and ensuring their child's safety during the Service. We will accommodate allergies when possible, and we will communicate whether such accommodations can be provided at the time of booking. 
   (d)        Parents or guardians are required to be present at all times during the Service to supervise their child, especially for children under a certain age. Messy Makers educators are there to facilitate activities, but it is essential to note that we cannot, under any circumstances, assume responsibility for the care of children. Participants in our Services engage in activities involving sensory play, which can be messy and occasionally include substances like slime. While we prioritise safety, there is an inherent risk of mess and, in rare cases, minor accidents. By booking a Service, you acknowledge and accept this inherent risk. Messy Makers is not liable for any injuries or damages that may occur during the Service, except in cases of gross negligence or wilful misconduct on our part.
   (e)        Our programs and activities are designed to be age-appropriate and safe. However, individual children may react differently to the sensory materials and activities. Parents or guardians should use their judgment to determine whether a particular activity is suitable for their child.
   (f)        Any testimonials or reviews on our website or promotional materials represent the experiences of previous customers. Individual results may vary, and Messy Makers does not guarantee the same experiences or results for all participants.

 

3    CUSTOMER OBLIGATIONS AND DISCLAIMERS
   (a)        Parents or guardians of children attending a Messy Makers Service must ensure that nappies or underwear remain on at all times. While we take precautions to prevent clothing from being soiled, please be aware that Messy Makers cannot assume responsibility for the aftercare of any clothing items. We use washable paints, but it cannot be guaranteed that they will wash out of all fabrics. We recommend that you bring older or spare clothes that you don't mind getting damaged while attending a Messy Makers Service.
   (b)        If your child is unwell, we kindly request that you notify Messy Makers at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled Service. In the interest of the health of all participants, we ask that unwell children do not attend. If we are notified of the child's illness at least 24 hours in advance, we will offer you an alternative class free of charge, provided the substitute class is of equal or lesser value (in accordance with clause 4).
   (c)        When attending a Messy Makers Service, we kindly request that any food you bring be nut-free. We also encourage you to refrain from consuming food or beverages in the activity areas. While we appreciate your cooperation, please understand that we do not police these guidelines, but they help us maintain a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone. Before the Service, please inform Messy Makers of any allergic reactions your child may have so that we can adjust our activities accordingly. For special events with a Service price below $17, we are unable to accommodate allergies and recommend against booking such Services. Messy Makers endeavours to create activities that are nut-free but cannot guarantee the absence of nut traces. Parents and guardians are responsible for assessing the risk and suitability of each activity based on their child's individual abilities. You acknowledge and agree that Messy Makers assumes no responsibility for allergic reactions resulting from participation in our Services.
   (d)        Parents or guardians are responsible for supervising their child at all times, both before, during, and after the Service.
