COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS CLIENT HEALTH DECLARATION
GO Vertical will send a link to a Client Health Declaration and Risk Acknowledgement form 24hours prior to the session. This must be completed by ALL participants to ensure there is not an increased risk of transmission of COVID-19 and to comply with control measures for the virus. Failure to complete the form will mean you are unable to attend the session and we will not be able to issue a refund for any payments received.
If GO Vertical is unable to deliver the session due to self isolation requirements, we will inform you 24hours prior to the session and offer a gift voucher or refund.
Final numbers of participants must be confirmed no later than 14 days prior to the trip. Failure to do this will result in the client being charged for the full amount of persons booked. Any discounts previously quoted or booked maybe lost or adjusted due to the final number of participants booked.

GO Vertical makes every effort to capture quality images/footage during your session which are shared free of charge via a private link with you after the session. We sometimes use images to promote our activities via our website and/or social media. Unless you inform us otherwise, we assume that you grant GO Vertical full rights to use images resulting from photography/video filming, and any reproductions or adaptations of the images for publicity or other purposes to help promote GO Vertical. This might include (but is not limited to), the right to use them in GO Vertical’s social media and website. If you DO NOT wish to grant this, please make your instructor aware.
Even though GO Vertical carries full Public Liability Insurance, it is strongly suggested that participants carry their own personal accident policy that covers them for the activity they are undertaking. This should include mountaineering, climbing, and/or canyoning. Personal accident policies are usually available from your own insurance broker.
BOOKER PLEASE BE AWARE - PARTICIPANTS
ALL participants must be made aware by the person booking the session that Outdoor Adventurous Activities, carry a degree of risk. Even though GO Vertical has tried to minimise these risks, there is still a chance that if gorge walking, participants may fall into cold, turbulent water that is fast flowing, or experience extremes of weather while mountaineering. Participants will only be accepted on the understanding that they are aware of these risks and wish to participate of their own free will.
On receiving your Booking confirmation, you agree to honour and abide by the terms and conditions laid down by GO Vertical, and have made all the participants in your party aware of these terms and conditions.
