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.), all participants are required to sign this waiver releasing Las Vegas Virtual Reality, (aka LVVR), LVVirtualReality.Com from any liability regarding your (or your child/dependent/minor’s) use of the Oculus Quest, and/or any of the LVVR’s VR equipment.

Oculus VR, LLC. and PlayStation VR, does NOT recommend that children under the age of 13 use the VR headsets.  Please stop use of the VR equipment if you feel any discomfort whatsoever.

BY USING ONE OF LVVR’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 LVVR’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 LVVR or it’s 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 LVVR before I, or the minor I am giving permission for, may use any of the LVVR’s VR equipment.


Health and Safety Risks Associated with the Use of VR

Unfortunately, there are risks associated with the use of VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) headsets. Some of the risks are fairly obvious: bumping into objects, people, etc. Other risks may either be latent in their effects (for example, vision impairment) or may trigger dizziness, nausea or even a seizure. The fact is, the technology is so new that health and safety research needs to catch up with it.
Because of the risks associated with the use of VR, the LVVR requires that a liability release form is signed prior to trying out the LVVR’s VR equipment. In order to help you understand those risks, we put together a list of articles and documents that explain the risks involved. We encourage you to Google at least one of them in order to understand the risks involved.
