WAIVER & RELEASE
CLIENT RELEASE AND INFORMED CONSENT FORM
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT ALL PROVISIONS BY SIGNING BELOW. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE TO ANYONE AT ANY TIME.
It is our intention to keep you as well informed about tanning as possible. This means informing you how to operate the tanning equipment. The proper procedure to following in the tanning room will be clearly explained by a member of our staff. We recommend sensible, moderate and responsible exposure to Ultraviolet Radiation (UVR). If you do not develop a tan outdoors, you are unlikely to tan from the use of any tanning device. Overexposure can cause Erythema (sunburn). Please feel free to ask ANY questions.
As with natural sunlight, overexposure can cause eye and skin injury and allergic reactions. Repeated overexposure may cause photo aging of the skin, dryness, wrinkling and in some instance skin cancer. We recommend that you do not tan outdoors on days you are tanning indoors, that you do not tan if you currently have a sunburn and that you, at most, tan only once in a 24 hour period.
Lotion and other products may cause your skin to be more sensitive to UV Rays. Check the posted list of drugs and products known to increase the photosensitivity of the skin. Check with your physician or pharmacist if you are unsure about any medications you are taking or if you have had a problem with indoor or outdoor tanning in the past.
WEAR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR
You are required to wear protective eyewear while tanning in our facility. Failure to wear protective eyewear may result in severe burns or long-term injury to the eye. We recommend that you remove contact lenses before tanning.
I have read the contents of this consent form carefully and state that I am not aware of any medical condition or other reason that would prohibit me from tanning. I understand that I will not be allowed to exceed the maximum recommended tanning time by certified staff. I have been given a tour and adequate instructions for the proper use of the tanning equipment, understand the risks involved, and use it at my own risk. I hereby agree to release the owners, operators and manufacturers from any injury or damages that I might incur due to the use of this facility.
Must 18 years or older to use the tanning equipment
Your session times are determined according to your skin type, tanning history as well as the condition of our tanning lamps and not by the maximum exposure times of the tanning units. We realize that you may have been tanning elsewhere, but we know our equipment the best; please follow our advice. Failure to follow said advice may result in burning for which we cannot be held responsible.
In order to accurately compile client histories each person wishing to tan must sign a CLIENT RELEASE AND INFORMED CONSENT FORM and be entered into our computer program.
We promote responsible tanning and do not allow double sessions or tanning more than once per day.
Please try to be early for your appointments; we may not be able to honour your appointment if you are late.
Mineral oil, baby oil, outdoor tanning oils and lotions, etc. are harmful to the tanning bed acrylics. Please do not use any lotion that is not intended for indoor use and/or that has not been approved by one of our staff. Using these items may result in the loss of your points/package without notice.
Cleanliness is VERY important to us. Please wipe clean / sanitize tanning beds after each use.
We don’t supply eye protection for health and sanitary purposes. You are required to wear eye protection for every session. Your eyelids are only .04mm thick and UV rays can penetrate up to 2mm deep. Do not tan without approved eyewear. Notify our staff if you don’t have personal protective eyewear. Never remove your eyewear when the tanning equipment is on.
Our staff are Smart Tan Certified and we strive to ensure that you receive the safest and most comfortable tanning experience possible.
All tanners must follow smart tanning guidelines;
Tanners must be age of majority in jurisdiction of residence (age of majority is 18 years for Ontario)
Individuals with skin type #1 cannot tan
Certified eyewear must be worn at all times
Tanning sessions must be spaced at least 48 hours apart
I have read and agree with all of the above.
