Conduct Policy for Pawprint Trails
- You accept liability for your own safety and the safety of others in your group whilst following any Pawprint Trail. You are always responsible for your own safety and and ensuring that you do not commit any acts of trespass.
- You should undertake dynamic risk assessment whilst following your Trail identifying any permanent or temporary hazards you see that may pose a threat to you or a member of your party. You should complete a formal risk assessment prior to undertaking your Trail if required by your organisation. Pawprint Trails is not liable for any injury incurred when following any Trail.
- Please be respectful whilst on your Trail and considerate of your surroundings. Some of the land may be on privately owned land and clues may well be set on property which requires thoughtful and appropriate actions/behaviour; such as war memorials, grave stones, historical sites, statues and monuments.
- If you are required to access private land to follow any Pawprint Trail you should make note and follow any conditions or restrictions set out by the land owner.
- Without prejudice to the generality of paragraph 1.3, a churchyard is not a public open space. Although Rectors are usually happy for people to visit their churchyards, they are first and foremost a space for quiet reflection. Any visitors to churchyards must be aware that bereaved may be tending graves and that worship may be taking place within the building. As churches are used for funerals and worship, if you plan to visit with a group then you should call in advance to ensure that no funeral is taking place and you should avoid Sunday visits unless you and your party are quiet and respectful.
- So far as we are aware all Trails can be followed by using public rights of way and/or implied access granted by land owners. These are liable to change from time to time.
- We have made every effort to ensure that the information contained in your Trails is correct but we cannot be held responsible for any unforeseen changes that interfere with the solving of clues.
- We cannot be help responsible for damage to property or accident or injury to life/limb incurred whilst following your Trail. Nothing in our terms and conditions nor in this policy shall limit our liability for death or personal injury cause by your own negligence.
- Pawprint Trails provides information and guidance on our Trails and the suitability for those completing them. This information is available on our website and within the Trails themselves. We believe this guidance to be correct but cannot be held responsible for any guidance which may be deemed inaccurate by a customer. This includes length and duration of a Trail and suitability for wheelchair and pushchair users on any given Trail.
- If whilst following a Pawprint Trail you feel the guidance is not suitable for yourself or your party, then you are responsible for making the decision to stop and should not carry on.
- To the best of our knowledge the facts contained in our Trails are accurate and Trails are refreshed from time to time. Should you notice an inaccuracy please do contact us via the form on our Contact page.
