White Plains Public Library – Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Release of Liability

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Release of Liability
For the purpose of this waiver, the terms VR and AR shall be used interchangeably.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the human response to virtual reality (dizziness, nausea, seizures, fear of heights, bumping into objects, etc.), we require all participants to sign this waiver releasing the White Plains Public Library from any liability regarding your (or your child/dependent/minor's) use of the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and/or any of the Library’s VR equipment.

Oculus VR, LLC. and PlayStation VR, does NOT recommend that children under the age of 13 use the VR headsets.

A list and description of risks associated with the use of VR is available at Resources to Help You Understand Health and Safety Risks Associated with the Use of VR.

Please stop use of the VR equipment if you feel any discomfort whatsoever.

BY USING ONE OF THE LIBRARY'S VR HEADSETS, YOU ARE INDICATING YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT.

I (or my child/dependent/minor) wish to use one of the Library's VR headsets. I recognize and understand that the use of a VR headset involves certain risks.

1) I (or my child/dependent/minor) am using the VR equipment voluntarily;
2) I assume all of the physical, psychological, and financial risks associated with use of VR equipment;
3) By signing, I acknowledge that I have read and understood all of the terms of this release form and that I
am voluntarily giving up substantial legal rights, including the right to sue the White Plains Public Library or
its employees;
4) [If the headset is being used by child/dependent/minor] I am the parent or legal guardian of the minor
named below. I have the legal right to consent to and, by signing below, I hereby do consent to the terms and
conditions of this Release of Liability.

I understand that I must sign this Release of Liability in person at the Library before I, or the minor I am giving permission for, may use any of the Library’s VR equipment.
