Second Nature and any associated parties, or hosts take no responsibility for injury during or after the retreat or event.
Please note, even if you have private health insurance, it is unlikely that this insurance will cover overseas trips such as the escapes and events offered. It is the guest’s responsibility to organise suitable travel and health insurance. Although we strongly encourage you to do so, by attending a retreat you acknowledge that Second Nature and all associated parties, is not in the business of providing insurance products and cannot be held liable if you fail to arrange suitable insurance coverage which may leave you exposed medically, financially or otherwise.
22. These terms and conditions shall be governed by English Law and the parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in all matters regarding them.
