If anyone collapses at a U3A Adelaide Hills course or event, it is our policy to call an ambulance. Members are advised to ensure they have adequate personal Ambulance Insurance to cover any call-out costs.
U3A Adelaide Hills collects personal information to enable efficient delivery of its services. No data will be provided to third party individuals or organisations. Members may opt not to provide full details, however, incomplete disclosure of requested detail may prevent full delivery of services.
REFUND & CANCELLATION
Membership Fees: This is a non refundable fee.
Short Courses: Some activities attract a fee to cover materials or entrance costs. Payment is required in advance and, unless more than 30 days notice is given, no refunds will be payable if you are unable to attend. You may find another member to attend in your place, in which case the Course Organiser should be notified.
Cancellations: We reserve the right to cancel a Course or an Event. Should this happen a full refund will be processed within 30 days of the date of cancellation.
Wearing of masks while participating in U3A Adelaide Hills activities is optional unless required by the venue. (Updated 21 Feb 2023)
PHOTOGRAPHY & PUBLICITY
Any photographs taken at U3A Adelaide Hills events may be used for publicity purposes. If you do not wish your image to be used it is your responsibility to move to the sidelines to allow photography of the rest of the group. Failure to do this implies tacit approval of the policy and your inclusion in the photograph.
Members please be aware that most activities involve some element of risk. While U3A Adelaide Hills maintains Public Liability Insurance and will endeavour to protect your safety, all risk cannot be totally avoided. Please choose activities suited to your individual interest, fitness and ability. Members participate at their own risk.
